  A unbiased review by a 360 & PS3 owner..!!

| | See all INs4NiTY's reviews (22)

I have owned my Xbox 360 since June 2006 and have loved every minute on it.
I am in the lucky posistion of owning both the 360 and a PS3 and at the moment I think the 360 is better.

Xbox Live is one of the best features i've ever used. A great way of communicating to friends online & to download the latest demos, videos and classic Arcade live games, along with the latest extra content for games that have already been purchased.

With plenty of great titles like Rainbow Six: Vegas, Call Of Duty 3, Oblivion (All of which have been out for months, yet not even out for a PS3), along with Gears Of War, Test Drive Unlimited. And with Forza 2 out next month and Halo 3 in November and GTA: IV, things are only going to get better.

If I had to choose to keep either the 360 or the PS3, i'd definitely keep the 360 at the moment.

Quite simply, the Xbox 360 is what next-gen gaming is all about. Great design, beautiful graphics, superb sound, and amazing gameplay.

Every day, the 360 grows from stength to strength. From it's ever-growing range of games, to its increasing exclusivity, to the awesome service that is Xbox Live. It's truly wonderful.

If you're a gamer, and want the best out there, this is definitely the choice for you. The Xbox 360 is, without a doubt, the best product on the market. Don't be fooled by the PS3's hype, or the Wii's low price-tag - the 360 is what gaming is all about.

Highly recommended to any and everyone.

What a joy to behold. Im an experienced pc gamer which I believed to be a far superior platform for gaming. I took the step into the console world with the 360 and I shall never look back. What an awesome machine, the best bit about pc is the online gaming. Xbox live is an awesome achievement on Microsofts part. Add all you mates on a private list, easily start co-op campaigns and multiplayer games together. This is great with such titles as Rainbow six Vegas and Gears of War. Also worth mentioning is the gamer score which you build up with achievements, a great little feature.

Networking with the Xbox 360 is simple as. Plug it into your standard home router, or wi-fi it with the adapter if you have a wireless adapter. If you are lucky enough to be running windows Vista or XP you will be sharing your media within seconds, I stream all my music from my Xbox while playing games! Having a rampage on crackdown while listening to push it to the limit of Scareface is a laugh!

With great titles coming out in the near future and downloadable content for GTA 4 (which the Ps3 shall not get), the Xbox 360 gets my thumbs up as the most superior gaming machine currently on the market.

Well done to Microsoft for not including a HDVD drive or Blue ray, as we dont know which will win the format war, they can release drives at a later date, Sony are taking a gamble with they blue ray drive.

Not mentioned so far are the excellent wireless accessories, both the Bluetooth headset and controller, both well thought of and designed.

If you cant afford a HDTV just yet get the 360 and the VGA cable and hook it up to your PC LCD widescreen monitor, which can be bought for cheap as chips.

Bring on Halo 3 and GTA 4 :)
