He didn't, the other gent is just grasping for an insinuated insult.

i don't even like halo, so the only thing xbox 360 has that i like and that ps3 doesn't have is the gears of war series, and even that isn't worth $60 a year. (also there's the dance central games, but you don't really need xbox live for those.) plus, if you haven't noticed, even on xbox live, (insert most recent entry of COD series here) always beats halo in number of players. both ps3 and xbox 360 have COD.

yeah xbox 360 has better multiplats, but in the long run idgaf. i'm slightly worried that eventually my whole library is going to be worthless because i'm way overdue for RROD (never got one, but its been about 4-5 years since i bought my console) and if that happens idk if i'm going to bother buying another xbox. >=$200 for a system that's about to be obsolete? lol

No point being free if there's no Halo killer.


No point being free even if there is a Halo killer.

And there is, btw . . . it's called CoD.

Which is better on 360 in every aspect.


Except that you have to pay to play online as opposed to free on the PS3. I'll take free online for primarily multiplayer games over slightly better graphics anyday

It's 60$ people, that's hardly worth ten plus years of crying. Get over it already.


This. I made that much in three hours at my summer job.

Besides, if the 360 guys were so much in love with the slightly better graphics, they'd go for the superior graphics on the PC instead(and online).

You wouldn't have to work at all to play online on the PS3 and PC however.

60 USD for online play is very expensive when you get it for free on the competitors' machines

It's not always about lack of money and such. I won't buy a turd no matter how "cheap" it is

I'd happily support my game system with a little money if that means making it the best that it can be. If I recall, MS hasn't been hacked unlike Sony...

First you say $60 is expensive, then you say it's cheap. Stick to one arguement, buddy.

So what if they charge me $60, at least I don't get D/Ced as much as I did on the PS3.
