Which xbox?
« on: 12 July 2011, 08:50: AM »
There is some talk here of getting an xbox. Presumably the Xbox 360 Elite is the one to go for?..........or the Xbox 360 250GB (or should we be considering a PS3?!  :o )

............just noticed something called 'kinect' :confused:

My Xbox has sat on a shelf gathering dust for the last 3+ years.  What a waste of money that was :(

As Zing has said go for the 250gb version with the Kinect bundle much more fun than a wii is.

The larger hdd will allow you to install the games on it and they load a little bit quicker.

I only use my ps3 for blu ray and as a media player.

Admittedly Peter likes the odd game on it but he gets much more out of his wii.

When stop pc games around Christmas I won't be going out to fet an xbox.

I prefer the PS3 for games as my pc is my controller also I have mine on a custom firmware which means all games upto the most recent play off a hard drive so I download them Hopefully a new CFW will be about for it sooner rather than later

If you buy an older Xbox maybe even MGP you could have it modded with the JTAG mod which means you can install any hard drive plus a couple of other features and nearly all Xboxs including most of the slims can have the firmware "updated" on the optical drive to allow other things

My modded xbox got banned of xbox live the other month and it won't allow updates to be installed even from putting the hdd on a pc to do it.

The modded xbox's are good though but once it's banned you might as well bin it as it becomes useless.

Yup, get a 250GB Xbox 360. Loads of space for installs or DLC, newer and more reliable than the Elite (which you probably can't get now anyway other than 2nd hand).
