I like rpg's etc mmorpg' i dont like first person shooter or war games, yea yea, sounds dumb. lol any reconemndations? and anyone know where i can get a cheap year gamerpass. I've seen em come and go.

    I have had my xBox 360 since 2007 and haven't had a single problem.

    Consider yourself a fortunate one. That said my ps3 is just about in paperweight mode right now but I've played the poo out of it since 05

    I have a Original XBox Elite w/ 120GB HDD never a single problem either.

    I have my 360 and Wii. I bought a Ps3 but returned it because I hooked it up and it sat for a week, so I couldnt justify keeping a $300.00 console if it was just going to sit there and look pretty.

    I only play Sports/Fighting/Rockband type games on the console, FPS games I play on my PC.

    My main gripe with the 360 is how MS requires you to have a XBL membership for Netflix aswell as to play online games unlike the Ps3.

    Bwahahahahahahahahaha! That's my dawg...


    I have the same problem with my xbox. My wife calls it the "dustbox $400" since that's how much I have in it.

    I basically only play call of duty, so it's nice to have around when the new map packs come out since xbox gets them a month earlier. Other than that I'm a PS3 lover.

    Most new titles are generally $59.99. Otherwise there's always the bargain bins and most retailers for the older and sometimes crappier 19.99 titles.
