xbox or ps3

Recommended Posts

it means I'm having a chuckle at your expense for convincing yourself so solidly that the PS3 has no issues that when someone reports one you think they're making it up to mess with you

Fuck sake Deadman I have both, I had the old type of ps3 for about a month before it stopped reading disks and I had to buy a new one :lol:. The Elite isn't the newest xbox, the slimline xbox is about as reliable as the slimline ps3, your personal experience doesn't over-rule ours. For the record I had the old style xbox for 4 years with no problems (it was stolen last year, although that's hardly Microsoft's fault ;) ) and my brother's since bought a new 'un. The new 'un works wonders. I'm no fanboy of either console but I prefer the Xbox for gaming and the ps3 for blu-rays and the fact it's easier to patch pes and NCAA works on British ones. We're not all trying to undermine you by thinking the ps3 has faults man.

look i first started with consoles in the past i had megadrives sega saturns etc and my main console was a sony psx the old grey one. i had that for god knows how many years no longer working now of course but i had it for a good 5 6 years easy. then i moved to xbox big mistake i had it for around 3 years or under. within its first year i got rrod staright away. took away for repairs got it back was working fine apart from the fact it was noisey when watching movies late at night.

naw he's right the ORIGINAL xbox 360's were very loud and unrelieable

 

then they fixed it all and brought out the newer versions (not the slims) just updated boards with better quality solder and a new dvd drive and those are grand. and have been since a year after the original launch when microsoft replaced all the first versions with the cheap board/solder combo

 

So as said, the 360 is fine, it has been fine for many many years, i've both consoles both are grand

Things break deadman,

 

when i said the ORIGINAL i literally meant the first model not the elites etc they have been fine (including long before the elites came out), you simply got a bad one it happens.

every version from the pro etc 2007 onwards have been fine after the changes from the initial 2005 model. even then they give you an extended warranty if you had an original so you got it changed for free if it busted.

 

My first PS3 broke on day 1, my current xbox 120gb elite has been fine for 2 years. my new ps3 (80gb fat) which i got a day after the broken one has also been grand for a couple of years now.

 

you had a problem with a single item, cars being a classic comparison, if someones car breaks ya don't see people going over that manuf forever because of a part failing, shit happens.
