Microsoft's sophmore console effort has been out for 15 months now, and joystiq.com wants to know:
How much are you playing 360?
360 is fun. But I wonder how this will look after people start abusing it.
the 360 is the focal point of my entertainment center, even if I get a PS3 I just can't see the situation changing.
with U.S marines, heat-holders, yakuzas, friends and family in my squad (friends list), I'm connected from all angles accross the globe, and Xbox Live is unquestionably, the TOP online gaming service.
I'm sure the Ps3 will be entertaining (just like the wii), but the 360 is my console of choice.
wow! That a great difference compared to the other 2 consoles polls.
And it's like that. If I see al the consoles and gaming systems I have owned it's much, much more.
Especially because of Live!
If I only compare it to last gen... OMG I played the original XBOX already often, but the 360 I play about every night if I get the chance. And if I can't (like the last two nights) I really have the urge to play it again... Which I will in some minutes. It's better then watching TV. The polls show it, 360 is the way gaming needs to go
When was the last time you saw sunlight? Trees? Real people? ;)
Actually I won't joke. With all the snow here recently I try to pretend the outside world doesn't exist too.
basically either you own a 360 thats all you play (or at least what you play the most) or you don't own one yet.
See maybe i'm weird, I go on spurts where I play it a ton or a go on spurts where I don't touch it...but than again my ps2 has my attention because god of war 1 and 2 and Guitar Hero and LP annoys me so I cant really play it anymore
I've been slowly working through FFXII on nights I work late - started reserving the RPGs for those nights after getting pwned on LIVE for being too tired and slow on the reflexes.
And I still have XBOX games and a few GC games left unfinished - like Zelda:TP and Mercenaries for example.
i'm on 360 most of the time. sometimes i'll go back to my pc games or ps2 games.
2006 definitely was the year of the 360 for me. This year I'm pretty even. Right now playing Tekken 5 DR/ VF5 and Lost Planet.
Next week Motorstorm and GRAW2!
Don't have a Wii, spending too much on the other two already. But I don't bash it.
I have a 360 and Wii (my wife wanted it), and while I won't bash the Wii, because there are fun aspects to it, I wouldn't have it if my wife didn't want it.
I'm hooked on achievements, which is fueling my frequent gameplay. 10-15 hours per week.
only played under 2 months, (2 hours every 2 days).... then i sold it.
Your poor PS3 never got a chance.
play it every day. it's great to be laid off for the winter!
+ my surround system are being used and abused for some great gaming. -Right now Crackdown has me putting in some serious time....I just love running around blowing sh!t up and 'Crackin heads. -Damm, if I knew fighting crime was so much fun I probably would have chosen a different career path years ago! -LOL.
Different career path, eh? ;)
Yeah, I'm jealous. I'd love to have Crackdown on the PS3.
I think after the wedding, after my HDTV, *then* I'll get a 360. There's no way I could sneak another console into the house until that ring's on her finger. Heh.
Still, that's what locked doors are for, I guess.
I play at least an hour a day. If I didn't work 50+ hour weeks, I'd certainly be on it more. Plus a few hours each day are logged watching (HD)dvd's on the HD drive. It gets a lot of use.
By the way, I have a launch day console. It's seen all that use just about every day since launch.
i watched an episode of father ted in an RE lesson in school and your picture just reminds me of the mad priest lol, anyway just thought i say your pic is good but balls of steel is my ting to watch.
for topic- although am getting a ps3 on march 23 ive played 3 games
gears of war- gr8 game but a bit repetitive and custorphobic(SPELLING MIGHT BE WRONG)
fifa 07- gr8 graphics n online but doesnt have gameplay like pes 6
pes6- shlt graphics and editing but gameplay is ok for a 360 controller(just use to ps2, had to change buttons to make it like o,x,/\, square
I hardly touch the 360 since I got my PS3. the only game I really play is Dead or Alive 4, god I love that game...
Man, you have a 360 and you're not playing Dead or Gears or Crackdown?
and even more with all the amazing titles coming this year, I may not see sunlight till next winter:)
Really enjoying crackdown at the moment and the GOW weekend sessions with my best mate and my brother, I talk to my mates and my brother more than ever since we all got on xbox live. It's loads of fun and i'll play as much as I can without bothering the other half and duties/work
3-4 hours, a few nights a week. I like to stretch my games out. Still haven't finished Oblivion or Gears.
And all and plus thats the only next generation console that I have bought, when I get a PS3 I would be playing more on the PS3 then that terrible 360 the only reason there's more 360's out there that have been sold because there are bored people that would buy the system but don't actually love it just like me well I wasn't actually bored but I really wanted the PS3 but of course that took a long time, but I went ahead and bought myself a 360 before the PS3 even came out so yeah and plus alot of the people that own a 360 don't really want it they either couldn't wait to buy the Wii or the PS3 and decided to do the dumbest choice by picking 360 instead of the console that they wanted and, I'm one of them I admit that but still 360 and its online service isn't that impressive to me anyway's but only to the 360 fans thinking like wow great online service I think america is the only one that likes the 360 online service but not other countrie's that make a big deal out of it like Japan and China.
Do you have to try this hard for attention. Come on man SHUT UP!!
I almost stopped reading after "that terrible 360", but I'm glad I didn't.
I honestly don't know which is more impressive: The fact that you've survived this long in life, or that possibly record-breaking sentence. I was beginning to think the only period in your post was over the "i"s.
Here, have some: ..... They're free.
It's really difficult to read what you write. Try using a period once in a while. And do you ever have anything positive to say? Looking at all your comments, all you do is whine and complain. Seriously, try being more constructive with your posts.
And so you don't like the 360. That's fine. We get it. You're entitled to your opinion. But don't cram it down our throats.
...since I've really played mine because it's been dead, had terrible glitches, or been in UPS transit hell. Hopefully the week after next I'll have a new one to finally be able to get into Rainbow Six Vegas, PGR3 (my gift game for my console woes), and by then GRAW2 will be out.
about 2 months for me as well ... at least for playng games.
I use it all the time to stream my music from my PC.
haven't played my 360 for about 2 months waiting for some good game to come out particularly halo 3 and mass effect. since i bought the PS3 ive been on that all day.
i love my 360 always playing it.great games great online servce.best console on this planet.my mate got a ps3 carnt see the attraction the ps3 is crap the games are poor,the online dosen,t really work.for me the 360 is the console to have.
ps2s on occasionally
Between my nephew and I, we play Gears about 16 hrs/week. My kids play Lego Star Wars. I take my son to the hoop with either NBA Street Homecourt or NBA Live 06. gCM
i dont own a 360, yet, but i know for sure after playing halo3 i wont be touching it for a couple of months....maybe years?( no really) but after that big break i suddenly start playing again, same thing happend with x1,GCN and the PS2 i really didnt touched that until recently.
its more the mood you are in, sometimes you just have to start the console and play the game that was collecting dust, you might get hooked again.
Playing Gears of War and FIFA World Cup with my friends, Those games will never bore me, I haven't finished Oblivion (long as hell, but I still love it) and still playing Viva Piñata, I am waiting for Blue Dragon, Banjo-Kazooie 3 and GTA4.
Only play Oblivion occasionally, while waitng for new wave of games.There are some great titles on the horizon, but they always seem to be months away, then they all turn up at once.And i moan,because afford them all.
