I got the 360 in 2006 because my computer couldn't run Oblivion, and I somehow missed most of the Xbox/PS2/Gamecube generation. I went NES -> SNES -> N64 -> Dreamcast -> Xbox 360

I literally got an Xbox for the sole purpose of Halo after playing it at a friends house

When I was younger I had gotten a Gamecube, had fun with certain games and thought the console was great. My cousins had gotten an Xbox and I went over there to hang out. My cousin demoed Morrowind for me and I was blown away. Then when we started getting Halo games going with 16 people (The highlight of gaming for me, split screen 4 tv's and a bunch of kids at a house was so much fun back in the day) I had to go buy one.

I loved the Xbox so much at that point. Got the 360 a little after it was released and had a ton of fun with that console. I'm a big fan of Xbox Live and most of the people I know all had Xbox's. Also with so much familiarity with MS I think that is why have been an avid Xbox owner.

I love some titles that the PS consoles have and considered getting PS2/3 a few times. I don't hold a strong bias against Sony, just something about Xbox that has appealed to me more. I would love to have all gaming consoles if finances and time allowed.

I got an Xbox because my Ps2 came with no games, no memory card and the original Xbox controller was more comfortable, so I made a switch to it. Haven't preferred Sony as my main gaming platform since Ps1.

i disagree completely the launch Xbox controller was the most uncomfortable controller I had ever used. That thing was a tank

For me I've been a Xbox owner since when the first xbox came out, then I chose the 360 all because they were more powerful and I had a grudge against Sony.

But with this current Xbox I went with Sony because I now held a grudge with MS and plus they no longer had the more powerful console. I think if they had the more powerful console I would have went with them again. It's really a big shame they decided to go with Kinect instead for me anyway.

So what about you.


Not going with both is only hurting yourself.
I like to think I make some pretty good topics and posts, until they get modded shortly after.

I'm not talking about the duke, i'm talking about the second model controller.

Played Halo CE with my cousins at Thanksgiving dinner in 02 or 03 and decided to wait until there was another game or two I liked to get one.

Later on, one of my friends told me about a new Gaiden being made and it sold me on Xbox First.
