Gotta love the bubbles idea.

If it's a PS3, you paid too much!!!!!!!!! LOL

I just wanted to congratulate you Bill, you have one bubble and are ignored by 40 people! That's amazing! You must be the king of useless, rude and fanboy comments.

Back to the article...It's sad to me that MS has had so many issues with the 360. I think it has really hurt the reputation of what is otherwise a fantastic machine. I wish they had spent a little more time refining it before they released it. At least they seem to be getting the problems under control now.

They should have put these heatsinks in all Xbox 360's from the beginning.

when repairing your 360 becomes the norm. The xbots are actually used to the idea that their 360 will break and you will have to get it repaired. What a pathetic piece of machine. MS should eb ashamed of itself.
Look at PS3, it has a totally new processor, neevr been out before, and look how its purring along with no problems. Look at the new Blu-Ray technology, its just purring along with no problems. The 360 cant even get old technology right.
You xbot zombies are suckers. Just plain suckers.

My 360 purrs as well, and is very reliable. I don't worry at all that it will break. It runs at a relatively cool temperature (much cooler than your PS3 I'm sure) and the games run very well on it too.

What's sad is that there are apparently a few people left who think that the PS3 is going to be the best just because Sony has had the most popular consoles the last two generations. PS3 has become a system of empty promises. Notice how games were downgraded between E3's. There are so many great next gen games on the 360 that people who are waiting for a PS3 missed out on, and will continue to miss out on.

A video game system is only as good as its games. PS3 fans say that it's better because they believe that the PS3 is more powerful. It's funny how last gen when the Xbox was way more powerful and included a hard drive, Sony fans said that the PS2 was better because it had more and better games.

Fast forward a few years, and the 360 does everything the PS3 can do (with the exception of BluRay), not to mention, the 360 has a FAR superior game library, and it looks to stay that way for the foreseeable future. Plus if we want a next gen DVD player, we have the OPTION of upgrading and not being forced to pay for one just to play next gen games. It is not 360 owners who are the suckers.

the PS3 has no problems?... well ok that obviously means you dont follow the news, the PS3 has had problems aswell. especially with the BluRay player inside.

tehcellownu4135d ago

how to tell you if you buying a crappy system..bend over 360 degree and let microsoft rape u in the butt constantly..

razer4135d ago

Both Jin and you obviously don't like the 360 or even own one. You just troll for messages like these and then post your ridiculous, rude, crude comments.. Looking at both of your post histories you say more offensive and flamebait comments then actually contribute to this site. Why bother? Doesn't it get old? Are you really that bitter over the 360?

jerrell4135d ago

That had me rolling!! I think we in a great Next Gen Gaming universe where all consoles are doing their thing. Some have issue and that is what happens when you rush a product out and Microsoft knows that. They wanted the jump on Sony, but they did it at a price. The performance of the 360 for delivering good gaming and graphics has shown itself, as it will with the PS3 and has already done. If Microsoft can fix their issues with this console, we all can have another reliable system without the worry of breaking down.

Now that the Xbox360 hardware issue has been addressed and resolved, I guess that doesn't leave my legions of faithful fanboys much ammo against the Xbox 360... Which is exactly why I quit!!
