Same.
Well, I'm considering going to get AC2, Fifa 10 and Halo 3 ODST all for the 360 in the next couple of months. They should keep me busy for the next couple of months considering I hardly get any free time these days :)

EW xbox 360. Why buy a console when you can get a good pc that plays the games better then consoles?

Do you really want to get into that discussion again?
I'll keep my reasons short. I don't want to start the whole PC vs console fight again..
a) I don't have time to play games as much any more
b) The little time I do have, I want to spend in playing, not thinking about what specs I can run my machine on
c) I'd rather not upgrade my rig every year since it does a bang up job at what I want it to do (Home Theater machine and programming).
d) I like the XBox controller (I know I can get one for the PC but meh :))

I do know about the whole quality issue but I couldn't care less about how good the game looks. The quality output of my xbox (which is 1080p btw) on my 1080p monitor looks great to me. I love it. That's all that matters (for me).
Also, my current graphics card can't run games that well on my primary monitor (1080p) but does so fine/at lower resolutions for my old monitor (1280x1024). I really cba to upgrade considering it serves it's main purpose as mentioned above. :happy:

Hmmm, i suppose your reasons are good but your ones about upgrading every year is invalid. At most you would need to upgrade your comp every 4 years which most people do already. If you do get a good computer straight up, you won't have to worry about specs or anything if you get a new game.

Plus really good computers parts are cheap these days.......... well i don't know about India :P

Parts are cheap here but I really CBA investing in a good graphics card which is an investment I'd have to do again in 2 years if I wish to play games consistently at high qualities.

Taking that into consideration and the amount of time I actually spend on playing games, it's cheaper for me to play on a console :)
Plus, the 360 means I get to play game series' like Halo and Gears of War (did the second one come out for PC?). For PS3 users, you have God of War ;)

I have an xbox 360, i don't use it because games are too expensive, 100 dollars a pop. Then to play multiplayer with people you need to purchase xbox live gold. so the xbox 360 certainly has it's down sides.

True. I never said it was perfect. I like it though.
One game I truly love playing on the 360 is EA's Fifa. The 360 version is next-gen while the PC version still uses an older engine, as it has for so many years. :happy:
