Is the console worth getting knowing next gen is around the corner?

Topic.

My xbox died a long time ago. Got it when it first launched. Now that Halo 4 is around the corner, I want it the console version. Only thing holding me back is if I buy it and in a year or two xbox 720 is launched. I would feel like I wasted my money. Lets say at best, 720 comes out in 2+ years. I know that is a lot of time and prob will not be playing halo 4 like a mad man after 2 year, but do you guys think 2 years+ of xbox gaming is worth 400$? then prob shell out 500-1000$ for the next console.

Yes next gen is around the corner if i was you i would buy an arcade version and a couple flashdrives and no i dont think it is worth it to spend that much unless you see other games you want to play

I'm pretty sure a xbox 360 doesn't cost $400...

And I would say yes. We have, literally, no information on the next console so I highly doubt it will come out soon. And within those next few years, you can bet there will plenty of good games.

Why buy it at full price?

I'm sure you can get some kind of used/refurbished 360 with hard drive or a separately purchased hard drive for between $150-$250, plus the cost of Halo 4 and Xbox Live Gold bundle deals which wouldn't take too much out of your pocket.

well money is not the issue. So if I get a new xbox, i'm getting the halo version which is hella sexy.

The issue is making sure that this new xbox will be put to good use and not get replaced by next gen.

If by "around the corner" you mean 2014/15, then yes, it's worth it to get a 360 still.

Yes, I am getting the console edition too. Good investment. It looks amazing, has great exclusives, and is a great deal at $350.
I'm sure you have at least 1 year to do good with it.

If money isn't the issue, why are you worried about wasting it? I'd say buy it and enjoy halo 4. I'm sure there will be other games you will enjoy between now and the next console.

I agree. If money isnt an issue, then why is your money situation a concern? Buy all the console you want
