Is this game worth getting a 360 for?

#1dan0956Posted 11/21/2012 6:05:13 AM
Ive got a ps3, ive got COD

Half my friends have xbox, half have ps3

Im weighing up if THIS GAME - HALO 4 is worth spending 200 to get an xbox for


1) play halo 4 - not keen on gow or forza (what other exclusives are there)?

2) im actually happy with blacks ops 2, but is this game allot better?

3) the chance to play my friends who have xbox online

4) new xbox out next year, so is it worth it?

basically, this game could be the game changer, the decision maker

Never buy a console just for one game.

the online experience on the xbox is generally better than the ps3

not really worth it if you never played a halo game before.
the universe is kinda big so you should have a lot of questions before you even start the game.

and the first mission wouldnt even make sense to you.

For one game no.

As for other exclusives do some research.

I have both a PS3. and 360 and I tend to buy single player games for the PS3 as well as fighting games. And FPS and racing for the 360.

Couple that with exclusives and you'd have a healthy library for each.

OP i'm on the same boat as you, but i don't enjoy Black Ops 2. I own a PS3, but i need that one strong MP shooter that will keep me entertained. So sick of COD and PS3 doesn't have a strong FPS exclusive.

I've never been into Halo, but for some reason i got this strong urge to play it. So sick of everything military FPS oriented, i need something different. The problem is as TC, it's the only game i'd buy Xbox for.

I own a 360 for two franchises : Halo and Forza. If you'll play them enough, yes, it's worth getting a console for one or two games.

Of course this all depends on your financial situation. I don't mind spending a few hundred dollars for something that offers hours of entertainment with my friends.

You could always buy a used console. I know the whole RROD situation can make people hesitant but a used console in a private sale is pretty cheap now.

Amazon were selling Halo 4 + 250gb 360 + 12 month xbox live membership for 150 the other day. I bought 5.

Deal has since been taken down though :(

Yes if you find a cheap one on Craigslist.
