    LOL! In my humblest of opinions the 360 is great for RPG fixes. I loves me some Lost Odyssey and Mass Effect. Fable 2 is decent and Ninja Gaiden 2 is great though I will definitely be getting Sigma 2 when it drops. But great post. I always wonder that to myself when I look at my box which in all honesty hasn't been turned on in probably a month and a half

    Yes I agree, RPGs (specifically JRPGs) is the one area where I really wish the PS3 would step up, that's actually the only reason I still have my 360. There were so many great titles on the PSX and PS2 I'm not sure why they decided to move away from it.

    As bad as some of the 360's RPG's are, I think a system is in a better when it has a handful of crappy RPG games than to have none at all.
    So as much as people want to bash Infinite Undiscovery, I thought it was pretty decent (the little bit that I played). And there are the masterpieces that are Star Ocean and Tales of Vesperia.

    I can pose my theory on this. First off the 360 jumped a full year out of the gate early and ushered in all these shooters and racers and action games, Sony sees this as they are launching the PS3 and decide that the future of gaming is going to shooter fans and action fans, Sony begin making action and shooter games to compensate for the steam that the 360 has built on these genres, developers of RPGs see the momentum behind the 360 and see the PS3 struggling against 600 and 500 dollar price tags and decide to put up their RPGs on the 360. Some mediocre RPG games get some sales due to being the only RPGs on the market, more devs see this as the holy grail and jump ship from Sony and run to the 360 and put their RPGs on the system. I don't think that Microsoft's deep pockets are hurting the equation either.

    So for the time being, if you enjoy RPGs the 360 actually makes good sense, and if you like DLC then the 360 makes better sense. Since I don't give too much of a damn about DLC I buy all multiplats on the PS3 and I buy all the exclusive RPGs on the 360, and seeing as how we still don't have a release date on Demon's Souls or WKC, and since it is still to be determined if ME2 and ME3 will hit the PS3 I suppose I will be hanging on to my box for a while at least.

    Infinite Undiscovery was wholly unsatisfying. Lost Odyssey was good and so was Mass Effect and if Mass Effect 2 is multiplat but you can carry over saved data from 1 I will buy ME2 on the 360 as well, but don't defend IU please, as that game was just painful.

    They have not in Japan i bet but we live in the US and there are not as many sales of RPG's since the gamer age in the US is not to the point where RPG's satisfy them. They only want to Murder, Death, Kill type
    of games. It is a sad side effect of our lack or reading in our children at home, they are allowed to entertain themselves with electronic hardware so as not to pester the adults... And adults only by what their kids say is cool and RPG's are not cool to the younger gamers...

    Plus to become a part of the Clan that Asuka wishtes to join X-box is not mandatory they also play PC based games since most of the professional gaming community uses PC software for gaming, ITS THE KEYBOARD N MOUSE vs CONTROLLER thing. Although it is changing somewhat the games for console competitions are limited to Resistance FOM for Sony and Halo and Project Gotham Racing for X-box.

    But most tournaments that I used to watch before Dish blew off the Gaming Channel that was in my package, most of those games were for the PC... Counter Strike etc also RTS games so as is stated there is no need to have an X-box for Asuka's inclusion into her dream...she just has to kick some booty to get high scores in the games they play...

    Listen, it's not that I don't appreciate the help. It's just that I haven't done anything to deserve this. That, and I'm not used to this kind of generosity.

    Still, I'll try and win one this weekend. And as for why I would even want one...I've always wanted one. Thing is, I felt that saying 'I don't want one' didn't sound as stupid as 'I can't afford one'. If my friends and my mom didn't pitch in and buy me a PS3 two Christmases ago, I still wouldn't have one. And the only reason I let them do that was that my launch PS2 was about to die.

    No one is forcing her to want a 360. there is alot of goodgames for the 360 to name a few halo 1, 2, and 3, mass effect 1 and 2, fable 1 and 2, Fallout, Oblivion, Elder scrolls V(comming soon), and orange box just to name a few. That list does not even include the downloadable content like worms, castle crashers, peggle, and Uno(heck ya). So there is no reason to think the 360 has NO good games, it has prenty. So help out a freind and pitch in a few dollars or what ever you can to help a freind be happy.

    The Funny thing is .. i own a 360 a year before the PS3 and i love my PS3 games more then the 360 .. i mean the game i have were either O.K or good and the ones i got i really liked the most are Crackdown, Marvel Ultimate alliance, Quake 4, and Saints Row.

    my thought's on Dead rising and Halo and Gears .. their Mediocre like a 6 ... 7 at most. i own Gears 1 and Halo 3 which was just like Halo 2 but updatd Graphics not much really changed and didn't care alot for it.. Dead rising .. well i got bored after 2 days of playing the game.

    so yea i'm a fanboy but i do own the other system cause i am a bigger fan of Sony Titles then MS Titles

    So, I now have an Xbox. My bf and I got screwed thanks to crappy controllers and horrible lag. The guy that I lost to in the finals (meaning the worse of the einrazer/myself duo made it to the finals) already had an Xbox. So, he agreed to sell it to us for $200. Since my b-day's coming up, ein payed for some of it as my b-day present. So we each only had to pay $100.

    Therefore, I bought a brand-new Xbox Elite (msrp $400) for $100. I don't have Live yet, but I have Halo 2 (yay!) and Fable (bigger yay!) to keep me occupied when I'm not on my PS3.

    I changed the total from $400 to $140 (your half of the $100 and one year of XBL $40)
