HEXUS.gaming take a look at some of the current deals available and examine whether its worth upgrading your Core/Arcade or 20GB Xbox 360 models to the 60GB or Elite.
"The best way to upgrade your Xbox 360" Trade it in for store credit and get a PS3.
... get a ps3??
i knew some one was gonna say that.
i wanted to say that!!
I saw it too, I was going to say it also - but I see u beat me too it
LMFAO so the solution they have is to trade it in for a newer model... LMFAO sadly makes sense due to the original being hdmi'less and i guess it makes more sense than people trying to purposely overheat their 360 so the warranty will kick and hopefully receive an upgraded model.....
It's a console lol. That's how it's suppose to be. I guess.
cool that rrod down
And what exactly is so bad about that idea Cahill?
I hope you're kidding because that's the dumbest thing you can do. Freezing temperatures freeze the capacitors inside the 360 along with any vapor that was in there. The moment you take it out, the capacitors condense, the air thickens and the humidity turns to water that's brushed all over your 360 internals. I don't need to cite 1st Grade science to tell you that Water + Electronics = BAD.
Yeah but the X-Box gets so hot you need a refrigerator to equalize the temperature to normal.
Most modern electronics use Electrolytic capacitors, so there would be no problem with them. The only problem you would have is the water vapor after wards that would be left all over it. If you are dumb enough to plug it in you would short something if not that then you would have water vapor all over your DVD lens so ya its not a good idea.
hahahah ive tried that :( mines didnt overheat, no matter what i did! :O surprising that too
just took the words out of my mouth EDIT i wonder why would anyone will bother to upgrade their 360? if they upgrade it means its costing them more than ps3, like that they might just buy a ps3(the best console with best games) 360 is dying, and now its the perfect time to sell it while there is still some demand for it!! later on in 2009 there will be no demand for it and it will be hard to find someone to buy it from u, also u will have to sell it with very cheap price!! all bots will jump ship this and next year to ps3! even theMART and pp why so serious bots?
best games??? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahah Did sony created some exclusive ps3 games just for you? cus people can't find your fictional games in stores hahahaha
anyday over those messy, gimped, low texture,framerate turtles that are 360 games. Talk about overhyping and underdelivering, the 3fixme is the biggest POS to ever hit the console market. Hell even xbox1 had better quality games.
...And if you want to upgrade the PS3, you can change the HDD with a bigger one that's cheaper? Oh wow...this is just pathetic. That settles it. Not getting a 360 anytime soon.
to sell it and buy a ps3!! thats the truth! 360 was good in 2007 but not now!! its already started to shows its age and limits while ps3 is still showing new boundaries!
Buying a ps3 would be a downgrade from the 360. 360 http://www.metacritic.com/g... PS3 http://www.metacritic.com/g... And that's the real world, not fantasy "Sony Land".
How many games are the XBOX consumers looking forward to that are exclusives in 2008 and 2009? Let me tell you how many.........3. Gears 2, Fable 2 and Banjo. I don't need to tell you about all of the upcomming exclusives for the PS3 for 2008 and 2009. MS didn't have a conference at Leipzig, because they have nothing to talk about. Oh, and by the way, so much for Too Human, Tales of Vesperia and Infinite Undiscovery. Looks like they just didn't measure up.
Well hey, ps3 has one must own game total. How many does 360 have, 7. Yes, I'm sure that 360 owners are looking forward to Left 4 Dead, Rock Band 2, Fable 2, Gears 2, Viva 2, and Banjo. But what 360 owners aren't waiting on is great games right now. Ps3 owners are. I've got 4 games for ps3, and I hope to add 1 more before the end of the year. I've got 65 360 games and plan to add atleast 4 to that by the end of the year. Only having a ps3 must s*ck b*lls, no wonder that the people who do are so hyped about maybe finally getting another game worth playing. Hell even most multi-plats aren't worth owning on the ps3.
If you want to upgrade your 360, just get a bigger hard drive. If you want to upgrade your PS3, start a false advertisment suit against Sony. The PS3 can't or hasn't done the things Sony hyped it could do prior to release. Then when Sony settles out of court (to avoid the word getting widespread), go buy a 360 and all the games that you have been missing out on. That's how you upgrade your PS3.
Who effin cares? Shut up.
Bob Dole.. You do your country proud. None truer words have ever been spoken.
"ps3 has one must own game total. How many does 360 have, 7." LoL! That is one of the most stupid comments I have ever seen on n4g. Are you serious? So Cod4, Oblivion, GTA IV and burnout paradise does only count as must haves on the 360 and not the PS3? Seriously are you for real? They are the same games and nothing more than that. "I've got 4 games for ps3, and I hope to add 1 more before the end of the year. I've got 65 360 games and plan to add atleast 4 to that by the end of the year." "Hell even most multi-plats aren't worth owning on the ps3." Are you too blinded by your biasedness to see the connection here aswell? If you are then let me state the obvious to you. Why are you stating that just because you don't own as many ps3 games as 360 games the ps3 is lacking in games? If you wanted to you could have alot more multiplatforms on the ps3 but as your biased and doesn't like the ps3 you choose to own more games on the xbox360. Stop deluting yourself. It has nothing to do with the consoles it has nothing to do with meta critics or anything else for that matter. It has only to do with you and your preferences.
I listed AAA exclusive console titles, if I had listed multi-plats the 360 would have had 14 and the ps3 5. So that isn't helping your argument any. And I made my statements because it's the truth. The 360 has a HELLUVA lot better game library than the ps3. It's the multitude of ignorant fanboys on this site that fight tooth and nail against the fact that if gaming is the reason to buy a game console, then they will get alot more bang for their buck by having a 360. Just like ps2 was the console that everyone should have owned last-gen, the 360 is the console this generation that everyone should own.
I'm sorry pal. You're gonna have to face up to the fact that the 360 is made from recycled sardine cans and has the lifespan of a dragonfly. The 360 was good when it came out. It kicked the arse out of the PS2's capabilities and still creams Ninty's family-orientated fad. But the PS3 has Metal Gear Solid 4, which is arguably the most sensational videogame of all time in both visuals and theatrics. The 360 has a loyal fanbase of which it should be proud, but the high quality of games, future-proof multimedia technology of the PS3 makes it the clear upgrade to Microsoft's badboy.
The funny thing is you bring up such a subjective view you make it seem like ps3 has no games.... Well in my view the only game EXCLUSIVE game and I felt that was worth to play on the box was Gears of War... then again its not really exclusive cuz I finished it on PC (good game at best nothing to soak you pants over). Halo was a joke.... but guess what that is my opinion. As for ps3 Im not saying its any better but I am really enjoying more games on the ps3 vs the xbox metal gear solid, drakes fortune and gt5 p. Sorry but IMO those games are really fun in gameplay vs what xbox has offered. Im sorry but having halo 3 as their top tiered game is kindov sad. Reason is I've played WAY too many fps's from the PC realm and halo felt way tooo generic. The ps3 fanbase is guilty of this also.... RFOM was such a generic shooter. I guess both of these games were marketing success cuz they reached out to casual gaming market that has not really played that many fps's. The marketing was so effective for halo that I would not believe how many ppl actually tried to convince themselves that the graphics were good LOL .. Anyways I guess Ill get a bunch of disagrees.... but at least I don't pull out of "list of top rated games" which does not really show ones open logical opinion, especially when we know ratings tend to linked to $$$ point taken from the gamespot incidents
