"The Xbox 360 - just skip it" (Part two)

The handful that agreed with me, plus a handful of others that were analytical without taking me to task, did a good job elaborating on my issues. Read those - they speak for me.

Some of the people who agree with me dismiss the Microsoft defenders as fanboys. I know what that means, but it's a harsh way of saying that the Xbox 360's core audience is a narrow and perhaps less-than-mature demographic niche.

obviously doesn't understand the great fun more than 10 million people are having with the 360, despite the hardware issues. He wants to talk about the hardware issues? Fine, his prerogative, but he makes it sound like it's no fun playing the 360. Uck this douchebag!

Jeba3487d ago

you just proved his point

JsonHenry3487d ago

Lol, this guy can say anything he wants about it - but I still enjoy playing on my 360 no matter what he says.

And who is he calling a fanboy? Like he is not in another companies camp....

Hey i have had my 360 since Jan 2006 and i have been having a great time playing games...i dont know why am i being called a narrowed audience...dude now stop stuffing the money sony gave you so say all this....and hey whats that behind you....stop playing Gears u dumbass....
Hey this machine might have its hardware issues.... here in india where i live i know a lot of people with the 360 and not one of them has had an issue yet apart from some improper connection problems...
Hey i have always loved playing games on my pc...ps2...ngage...

Why the hell should he even care? Did he run low on stories that week and need to pull something out of his crack to keep himself from getting fired? If others wish to buy MS products then that is there prerogative...welcome to freakin America. He is just one more hack writer under the delusion that his inconsequential article is going to change the world or make his non-MS stock rise...please. The funniest thing is his insinuation of others being MS fanboys...doesn't that action alone make him a fanboy? LOL.

Feel free to elaborate.

Edit: this is crazy, how can you disagree with that? So he shouldn't feel free to elaborate or what? Or am I not allowed to have an explanation?

-_-_-_-_-_-_-3487d ago

He didn't say it's not fun, nor did he mean to imply that. Read it again.

"I’ve played a lot of Xbox and Xbox 360 games. I’ve done a lot of Xbox and Xbox 360 reporting. And as of today, I can’t imagine circumstances in which I’d recommend the purchase of an Xbox 360."

How would you interprete that sentence then? You think that doesn't imply
it's no fun to own a 360? I mean, isn't "great fun" a circumstance to recommend a purchase?

Edit: suckers took my bubbles again, was it something I said? Did I insult you in some way? Or was I making too much sense?

clownfacemcgee3487d ago

He wasn't implying anything of the sort. He said, "as of today, I can’t imagine circumstances in which I’d recommend the purchase of an Xbox 360." How is that saying it's no fun? He just said that HE doesn't find any way to justify it. He was saying that playing it won't last forever if your console breaks.

Anyway, I don't agree with him. I think, if you'll accept living with a significant risk, and don't mind either paying for some "extras" or living without them, then the 360 could be very fun. But that's his opinion, and you're flaming him for it.

"How is that saying it's no fun? He just said that HE doesn't find any way to justify it."

Well if he had fun with it, wouldn't that be a reason to justify a purchase? He didn't literally say it's no fun, but that's what comes across in his article.
And you say "it's his opinion", wich is true, but if he publicly advises people not to buy a 360, maybe he shouldn't only give his biased opinion and for the rest ignore all the great things 360 has got going for it.
I'm not flaming him for his opinion, I'm flaming him for being incomplete and biased.

Also, if you write this:
"Anyway, I don't agree with him. I think, if you'll accept living with a significant risk, and don't mind either paying for some "extras" or living without them, then the 360 could be very fun."

aren't you saying that he made it look like it's no fun yourself?

OMFG

He was better off not even responding.
