Re: Which Gaming Console??????????


I am myself looking to get the XBox 360 after @Luciffer gave me the keeda to do so for my child. I have the PS3 and regret that I did not get the XBox instead. The kinect for XBox lets you immerse yourself in the game and the PS3 Move is nowhere close to this experience.

Dude.. get a xbox 4 GB ... SLIM (V. Important)
xBox HAS to be Kinect ready... also make sure it's PAL version.

Later on... whenever you have the money... or find a deal on them..
Add the 250GB HDD
and the Kinect Kit

Best gaming outfit there is ATM

what about the problem than can occur on both ps3 and xbox ?

both ylod and rrod are very rare now. newer xbox (after jasper) very rarely get rrod so thats not a problem.

Look dude.. there's an old saying:
" A Little knowledge is a dangerous thing"

I got my xbox, xBox360, PS2, PS3 all on Launch day in US/EU
Been thru 11 xBox 360s so far... bricked 3.
And get this.. Not a single time have I even seen that RROD an YLOD thingies.

All 3 xBoxes I lost was to the same thing... I killed the DVD drives...
So.. as a general rule stay away from Used xBoxes which have been running without a HDD for 6 months or more, or used to play a lot of games off the DVD drive.

Also.. from what I've noticed in India.. failure rate of electronics seems to be almost 10X higher than the west.
I personally attribute it to the DUST over here...

So.. in short .. you have a far greater chance of losing your unit to either Drive failure or Dust, than to any RROD nonsense.
But instances of both RROD and Ylod have been far reduced with the slim systems from both manufacturers.
(the heat problems generally existed in the first few years productions from both manufacturers)

Yes they are ... But they don't come cheap. Last time I checked (appox 3 months back. was 5K for new drive for the slim consoles)
In India .. I'd have it replaced if I lost one here...
But in the west.. I just sold them off as parts and got a new one. (The xBox.. not the drive)

Re: Which Gaming Console??????????

Personally.. I haven't lost any PS3 drives... Could be cuz it's Blu-Ray..
But more likely it's cuz I always ended up using the xBox much more than the PS3

However I did have a LOT of friends in EU who had the same problem as me with the xBox drives.

But this is no reason to decide on one Vs the other.
Just take it as both a equaly likely to fail.
Don't worry about it.. just treat it nice.. aka don't take advise on treating electronics from xplodee @invader
Remember.. you wouldn't own a computer today if you decided that you're gonna wait till they stop depreciating
