Small Disclaimer: If I somehow happen to insult someone with my ramblings of the xbox, please know it is unintentional and disregard it.
Im currently debating over going through with my 360 purchase. Technically im getting it for free, but im beggining to have my doubts again with MS' newest iteration of the xbox.The reason being the current xbox really does not caiter to gamers such as my self; the gamers that cant stand to play an FPS game, sports games, and racing games and just enjoy keeping the gaming experience offline.
I bought my xbox when it was at its original price of 300.00 US with the fat ol' controller (believe it or not I actually considered it a steal at the time lol) and to this day I have only owned in total 6 xbox games (KOTOR II was the last game i purchased), in comparison to the current 219(3 JP) PS2, and 28(2 JP) GCN titles I currently own (im not even going to bother with counting my psp & DS games...)
The key reason I preordered it in the first place (taking it being free out of the equation) is because I noticed SE decided to give the 360 a port of FFXI, which I figured was a great sign of changes to come, but now when I look through the launch list im beggining to wonder how far off is this change going to happen? All I see is more and more FPS, racing and sports titles; even the new elderscrolls is looking like its going to be FP view only, which really sucks for me. Pretty much the only thing left on my gaming list is Blue Dragon, which is looking very promising so far.
In any usual case, I would do my own research and if possible would avoid posting here as much as humanly possible (not because I got something against the site per se, but most members just dont seem too keen on people posting questions with 'below average' post counts to be worthy of their time.) I also realize that a board such as this is likely to have a good amount of 360 fans, that might know more information than I do, and perhaps might be able to point me into the right direction with my current quandary...
So in short I would like to know if I should just go ahead and keep my preorder ticket, or give it to one of three friends that want it. I think the main reasons I want it is because I just like having the latest console regardless of which company makes it, and I have this small bit of faith left in my soul for the console; because in some way I am fully expecting the 360 to not bore me to tears like the original did.
BTW, if your bias leans in favor of the 360 or vica versa, a responce would also be very much apprieciated ^_^
