DoylesTown: Many people would love to get into playing videogames, but the price keeps them at bay. And at first glance, it’s a valid assumption. To get started in the current Xbox 360/PS3 generation of gaming when it started would’ve cost a good $800

And pot enhances the games.
Graphics look better, story is deeper and the music becomes three dimensional and seems to surround you like a blanket but still has the clarity to enable you to almost reach out and pluck individual chords from the air.

Or so a 'friend' told me.

Xbox is easily the cheapest option, you can pick up an 360 20gb pre-owned here in the UK for like £60-£70 quid these days. Even after you pay for the Live membership its still cheaper and theres a huge selection of games.

Oh i'm a PS3 owner by the way, but if its about cost and you want to play games then yeah, Xbox.
