Xbox 360: This Gen's Best Game Console

Eskimo Press: It's been one hell of a console war. Countless curse words and insults, luckily no causalities, at least to my knowledge. We do, however, feel that this generation is coming to a conclusion, so we think it is appropriate to tell you, unarguably, why the Xbox 360 deserves the title, "best gaming console of this generation".

Would have to agree that it is certainly the most convenient game console, but I am very disappointed with the lack of innovative exclusive titles released in the past two years.

Still discussing 8 year old hardware on N4G?

Army_of_Darkness2560d ago (Edited 2560d ago )

You should know, after all your in the discussion and topic right now ain't cha?? ;-)

And NO. This title belongs to the PS3 Overall. Anyone that has one knows why, so I'm not gonna waste my time writing a novel.

RumbleFish2559d ago

You're right, but after so many years of redundant discussions which console may be better, even the most die hard fans may have recognized that each has it's strenghs and weaknesses.

"Xbox 360: This Gen's Best Game Console"
According to movie lovers.

'TV and movies overtake online gaming on Xbox 360'

Waiting for gears 4 or wait for ni no kuni, last of us or beyond? hmm sad for MS.

"Trixie, an ex-Xbox employee about her new novel, the reason why she left Microsoft"
*"Xbox is run by mostly middle managers with no gaming experience" - trixie.

MS needs some fixing.. Actually they don't since xbox sells anyway.

This should distract from no new games.

Between old ps2 franchises, ps3 franchises and most likely new ps4 title coming in the future sony is loaded. Duck low becuz any game could be thrown at you in any second..

Meh. This article will soon be filled with 360 owners saying they agree and ps3 owners with their 'Lists'. Its pointless.

Unlike last gen when we could clearly say ps2 was the winner, this gen in reality is just so close to call. That's why there's so much arguing. Lets just say all three done incredibly well.

nukeitall2560d ago

I kind of agree with this! Bottom line is there differences with advantages and disadvantages on all sides.

I'm really happy how this generation turned out with three competitors really really close (except for maybe the Wii). It couldn't have been a better situation for gamers and I love the variety and how the industry evolved with first Wii Motion Controls and then Kinect.

DOMination-2560d ago

Exactly! I for once will be getting both MS and Sony consoles on day.

All I hope for is MS focus more on first party (which seems to be happening with all their studio purchases recently) and Sony... for their OS to be less boring and make me feel like I'm in a social environment (well it seems Sony London are working on this, instead of SCE Japan which again in my opinion will only work out for the better). Next Gen seems like its going to be perfect.

MikeMyers2560d ago

If only it were that simple. I too agree that there doesn't need to be a winner, all 3 had their own success. Unlike last generation where both Microsoft and Nintendo were totally outclassed by the tons of support the PS2 got.

When the race is much closer like we seen this generation, we see more attention from those who stay loyal.

Now comes the defense department to say that their system is the best, it always happened. The best console is the 1 you have and play, end of story. We feel the need to defend a voluntary way of either feelings, hate, trolling, annoy others or just simply see how people will react to others, but no one knows what makes you a gamer for it is your own ways of reality. With that in mind, I enjoy all 4 now and it is arguably based on the games itself, games brings the joy, not the consoles. I like my PS3 and wont trade it for any console cause the first party keeps me hooked, but I also enjoy online and Xbox gives me the perfect balanced, while the WII and WII=U are fun on its own way, no one cant tell me that they did not enjoy Mario, therefore, gamers win. As a gamer 360 brought the most happiness for me cause of the online play has no equal, while PS3 gave me that home feeling of family oriented movies and services keeping us together through entertainment. Wii was a blast for my kids and I do enjoy every minute I was in them. Only gamers win when they are satisfy with their system, I know I did... There is plus and minus to every console, there has never been a perfect console, nor will there be in our lifetime, cause they all improve in its own ways. Im happy to be a gamer and always will be, there is no reason to hate while you play to have fun in the gaming community. With that in mind, go on with your life and have a great gaming device that makes you happy and remember, we all want to have fun, so stop anallysing whats the best and know that this are simply gaming devices, entertainment to spend time, not a system to establish your feelings, religion or the beginning of a war, its simply a way of life. All I say is, game on.., cause we all want to feel the joy...

Anon19742560d ago

Sooo, the fact that a gaming console does more than gaming is a strike against it? OoooK. Does this ring any bells for Kinect users out there? "Xbox...Social" "Xbox...Bing"

So in one breath you condemn a system for the things it does other than gaming, in the next breath you're singing the praises of Kinect and all the things the 360 does other than gaming.

I'm not following the logic here.

In terms of making socializing with friends and family online easier then I agree.

But MS has dropped the ball in the last 3 years and have focused on Kinect so in terms of games The PS3 wins hands down.

The only thing that saves the 360 is that most of the mutliplats are better on the 360 but that is slowly changing.

raytraceme2560d ago

Best Multimedia console? Sure Xbox won but for GAME console the Playstation is my winner. The Playstation has loads of aaa exclusive platformers and other action adventure games, which are genres that I love and grew up with.

jimbobwahey2560d ago

No interest in clicking flamebait articles, but if what you say is true and they really do consider the Xbox 360 to be superior for multimedia, then I find that rather bizarre considering that the PS3 is the only one out of the two to support Blu Ray.

Athonline2560d ago (Edited 2560d ago )

As an early adopted of both consoles and now on my second version of both consoles as well:
-XBox is a much better experience overall in terms of menus, online, browsing XBox Live, keeping a friend's list. Plus I find the controller a tad better. Achievements feel a little bit "better" used than trophies and got me engaged more into thinking "I will get the X game on a 360 since they play the same just for APs".
It has some great (for me at least) franchises I enjoyed in my original XBox such as Halo, Fable and this-gen IPs like Gears.

-PS3 has Blu-Ray. When I moved to UK the first console I went to "re-buy" was a PS3 for Blu-ray movies, no I do not like digital movies. The PS3 doesn't "feel" the same as the 360, it feels more "dull", "serious" with less empathised in online connectivity. Yet it had some must-play sequels and new IPs. The only major disappointment is the lack of a proper online community, especially at exclusives.

At the far end if I only had one console it would be a PS3 due to sequels to franchises I grown up with and the fact I always prefer SP over MP.
If I didn't have a previous PS2/XBox gen consoles, I would prefer a 360 most likely...
