Kotaku - Mass Effect is a series about making tough decisions, and commenter eatplaysleepmore is really feeling it. He wants to sell his Xbox 360, but doesn't want to lose the accumulated save data for the previous two games. What should he do?
no, he can play it on ps3 or pc with better graphics and mods
Can't we have any real gamers debates in the comments section without the usual horde crapping their pants over plastic toys?
Kotaku really dug deep into the gutter of Flames for this one. Shame Evil
I agree this is sheer trash journalism and there is no reason, no reason to sell your 360 unless you want to upgrade or there is a hardware issue. But you must have missed the bazillion articles they have written where Sony was burned by much higher flames. Wait, if they wrote it about Sony then it's true.
no, he's having a problem because if he does that then he'll lose his saves.
Lmao, check out the comment section.
If it was me I'd stick with it, doesn't sound like the guy is particularly low on funds or anything or in a situation where he desperately needs the money from selling his Xbox. That being said I'm not as sure as I was before that ME3 really will wrap everything up considering Bioware have said a few times that instead of ME3 ending a part of the series it is more of a "new beginning" so I'm not sure. Not saying the decisions from the previous games won't matter, but maybe they won't be as big as expected before or maybe they won't really finish everything off just yet.
Yeah what's an xbox gonna get you? 70 bucks? That'll get you out of debt.
i think he should sell it and buy a ps3 still get to play mass effect 3 and all the great ps3 exclusives and multiplats or just buy a ps3 and keep it then he will have best of both worlds
He already has a PS3.
@bahabeast8619. Clearly you don't know what a period is.
@XDF clearly your a fkin snott watching too much b*tch
and here i thought people on n4g claim ps3 community are mature gamers, don't curse online, etc....instead of stupid kids cursing every few second. Well, You just prove them wrong bahabeast8619. Thanks for representing the ps3 crowd. Keep it up bro. @fallenangel he already has ps3 and it doesn't looks like he in needs of money. If you are a gamer, what is the point of selling your consoles u already own?
I scrolled down and read DocSeuss's comment thinking that was the article...
The smart move would be. Sell it before it craps out on you, otherwise it will be worthless. Sell that 360 and buy Uncharted 3, it's worth every penny. 9491.
Kinda funny because ME2 is what made me sell my 360. The only reason I kept the damn thing was because of Mass Effect.
I say keep it, collect it and you'll be happy you still have it in the future.
I'd have to tell him to sell it. I have my 360 and switched my Mass Effect goodness over to the PS3. My 360 hasn't really been turned on since sometime last year. I'm not a fan of Gears, Halo, or Forza. I'll have to give Fable 3 a shot sometime in the future though.
Dude fable sucks. The only good franchise that 360is have is gears of War.
Serious question when is the next xbox exclusive coming out? The only game I can think of is Halo 4 and that doesn't have a date. Am I missing another game?
OK, posting a "Selling X360" article on N4G and what do you expect the replies are going to be? The only people seems to care here are the obvious usual suspects on these type of stupid article that has nothing to do with Gaming news or reviews.
Selling a console is always a bad choice. Even if you dont play it a game can come out for it you want.
What a stupid question... A "gamer" doesn't sell there console(s)....
Sell it. Why? Because all the most popular games and some of the best games this generation are in the PS3 with free online. Plus God of War 3, that game is just the best. I made another account just to platinum it again.
You might as well keep it. You won't get a damn thing for selling it as cheap as they are. Especially if you try and sell it @ highwayrobbery A.K.A gamestop
Dude must really be struggling if he's desperate for that extra £100. I'd say sell it, you need to eat and keep your home warm. Then in some years, when your life sucks less, you can buy a new one.
