Out of all the things the 360 did right in 2008, I can't help but be disappointed by the fact that the majority of big-name 360 titles were very glitchy. Too Human, Fable II, Gears 2, Left 4 Dead, and Ninja Gaiden 2 were all pretty dang glitchy. Banjo Kazooie was the only game that wasn't too glitchy, but unfortunately I didn't find that game too fun to begin with. What's up with that?

The author also mentioned "superior downloadable content". Uhhh....WHAT content? The two major exclusive DLC packs announced for the 360 last year were GTA4 and Fallout 3, yet both of those DLC packs came out in 2009.

And finally, the author mentioned "revamped, dependable 360 hardware". Sorry, but no cigar.

@ panasonic

Who mentioned Sony? I was talking about the 360.

Y'know, it really betrays your insecurity when you interpret every criticism of the 360 as some kind of anti-Microsoft, Sony fanboy rant.

Elven63547d ago

They did introduce the Jasper boxes which is definitely a start, when the author mentioned DLC it was probably for securing it or something.

Maybe it was you blaming MS for 3rd party developers making glitchy games. WTF does MS have to do with that? Blame the developers idiot.

I agree with some of it, but not the NXE. I hate it.

I love the NXE, massive update over the outdated dashboard.

Make 2008 it's own... what? I thought Nintendo owned 2008?

Can stupid flamebait articles at least be consistent, please?

RAGE3547d ago

In 360 world, the Wii doesn't exist.

panasonic233547d ago

but [email protected] said wii is not a next gen console so i guess 360 owned 08.

jkhan3547d ago

Actually both msft and sony won't consider Wii as a rival because they know they will be beaten to death.

Unicron3547d ago

Who is "sonyfanboy" and where do I speak with him? Does he control the law of this place? I be confused.

All I'm saying is, all this "2008 was the year of (insert console here)" stuff is just silly e-phallus waggling. If you're a gamer, all you should care about is that it was a year of great games.

Totally excluding the Wii, Microsoft and Sony were totally neck and neck for annual world-wide sales... Lol Xbox owning 2008 that's a laugh riot.

And games well... Sony did the best for games.

about the mention of xbox live....that seems like a stretch...or did I miss some added features. Seems like it just stayed consistent with 2007.....
