Will the Xbox 360 be regarded as a good or bad console after this generation? What did the system do right or wrong? Find out!
Worse moment for me was having to turn it off and go to bed,having so many great moments this is all i can think of.
Indeed! Even if there really were bad moments (I can't think of any now), they've been overshadowed by all those endless hours of great moments!
Its amazing for people like them to be in the know & conceal things that actually happened, for instance: RROD: M$ gave everyone a 3 year warranty! I had 4 consoles to die of red ring (2 for my son & 2 for me) I sent them to M$ for free & got them back within 5 days each time. When M$ revamped the 360, it came back BETTER! Wi-fi while keeping BACKWARDS COMPATABILITY! SONY: When they had the YELLOW LIGHT OF DEATH everyone had to pay $159 to get it fixed EVERYONE! No one I know has a PS PHAT that works! SONY never issued a free repair NEVER! SONY Slim: Came with a reduction from the PHAT...less of everyting & the ELIMINATION of BACKWARDS COMPATABILITY! Now, SONY wont even fix your PS3 PHAT, they will let you buy a PS Slim that has no BACKWARDS COMPATABILITY! Also, you lose your game saves...ALL OF THEM! With the 360 you dont lose 1 SAVE! Why did they not say that? M$ corrected everything & made the 360 Slim much better than the original 360. SONY, on the other hand made the PS Slim with less features than the original!
The best moments were the first few years, the worst moments are the last few years. IMO, anyway.
The first time I fired up my Xbox 360 in 2005, first game I played was Kameo, second was Perfect Dark Zero. I was like a kid all over again. When I first played Gears Of War in 2006, I was blown away! There are really too many amazing moments to really list, I have to say in 2010 when the new 360s came out and I got mine day one, I said it was the nicest looking console ever, and I still believe that, so well done.
I have to agree with all your points. The only bad day I had was when my console had the RROD but I had 2 360S and I just sent my dead one to MS and used the one in the back in the front until my repaired one came back. But I also went out on day 1 and traded both my big 360S in and got 2 360s. I hope MS manage to design the next xbox as nice as this one. For me the 360 has been my most played on console this gen and had some games that have made me feel like a kid again. For me the tape games of this gen on the 360 were Halo 4, GOW3, Alan Wake, Forza 4, Forza Horizon, Kameo and PGR4.
My worst moment was getting my THIRD RROD when I barely even play the thing.
Good thing each unit had a 3 year warranty on them. So many people lost their ps3 fat units due to ylod and had to settle for a ps3 slim losing the ability to play Bc games. And even if you got ylod on a slim, you had to pay $150 for sony to repair it. Its a shame that only Ms cares enough about their customers to actually give long warranties on their consoles. I had 2 rrod and didnt pay a cent to have them shipped or repaired. I remember going through 3 ps1s and 2 ps2s. Craply built hardware but had to keep replacing them to play some of my favorite games.
