My girlfriends, friend and her boyfriend are going out east for a week or two and I asked if he wouldn't mind trading his 360 for my psp. He agreed and liked the sound of the deal, however I asked him if he had a warranty for it so if the 360 were to die on me I wouldn't be responsible. He then told me that he was on his 2nd 360 and bought a 3 year warranty after his 1st one died on him. I was reassured and liked the idea of me not being responsible for a dead 360.
Anyway, after playing Gears and Rainbow 6: Vegas I can safely say that I WANT ONE!!!
Gears is amazing (although I noticed a few graphical glitches) the textures are just drop dead gorgeous. I haven't beaten it yet but it's fun and just graphically amazing (especially on my telly @ 1080p).
R6:Vegas too me is my kind of game and I preferred the game play over gears. Also has very nice graphics, just like gears.
Now for my gripes with the system.
This thing is loud and I mean LOUD. I don't know if it's the particular drive thats in it and if they have improved upon this or not (I think it's the Samsung but Im just going from memory right now) but it's louder than the compressor in my fridge for ****s sake. The controller is sooo heavy after getting used to the sixaxis, even the dualshock. Although, it feels more solid than the sixaxis it's really heavy. The play and charge is like $100 (WTF!! AA batts suck balls too). On a side note: I really miss rumble.
Haven't gone online yet but he has most of the demos and I can personally say that GTHD is and plays better than Forza 2 and DIRT kind of sucks ass (opinion)
All in all, I'm going to get a 360 (once they improve the hardware, it's basically a crap shoot), I really want one but I think I'm happier with my ps3, once the games start coming I think the PS3 is going too be fine against the other two competitors. It's hardware just oozes quality.
If you upscale games like gears to 1080p will the AA still be the same because I noticed it has some jaggies that I never heard any of you guys complaining about, nothing too bad but just wondering.
