Love/Hate

So this week I’m going with a change of pace. I wanted to write and share a note for something I love and hate. So here goes:

Dear Xbox 360,

I remember the first day I got you I had so much fun, you even made my girlfriend jealous. We spent a lot of late nights together, having fun, playing with friends. You were new and all my friends loved you. Seemed like you were perfect. Yeah you were loud and had a huge power brick but none of that mattered.

I remember the first time you broke my heart, it was the day you cracked my favorite game. By the time I realized you had already cracked 2 others. So I sent you in, and I hurt with boredom while you were away. When you came back you were as good as new and we went back to having  a great time, until for my birthday you gave me another cracked disc. Thanks :(. I sent you back in and again I forgave you but you were never the same. I got sick of paying to play online and you began to become cold. So cold that you froze my games.

Now my friends were having problems with you too. My cousin got 7 of you before he gave up on you. Almost everyone I know has had to have you repaired at least once. We all live in fear of the dreaded red ring of death. That is no way to live. On top of that you have never truly fixed all of your problems. Your the same as the first day you came out, yes you have a bigger hard drive but what good is that if you won’t cut on.

I’m moving on. I have made the jump to your competitor, PS3. PS3 has slimmed down and runs better than ever and has never had the problems you have had. Plus it plays blue rays, how cool is that? I will still visit from time to time, plus some of my favorite games only play on you so we have that until you break them. So I am off to free internet and blue ray. Most of all it give me something you never have, dependability.

Sincerely,
Redgamer

ps. you suck

pps. i love you

    That is great, absolutely priceless. I’ve personally never had an Xbox but I have heard about all the problems it has. That’s pretty much the reason why I never got one. Besides I’ve always been a Playstation fan. I’m glad you finally decided you jump on the right track.

      They all have their pluses and minuses, but as of this moment the red ring of death and cracking game discs takes the cake. I even had it put a ring in one of my game discs because it was standing and it leaned over a little. The laser destroyed the disc. Tell me, what other system does that

    I have had four of them and I am also about to jump track. Only thing that’s going for me is the controller it is way better then the PS3’s I can’t stand that dam thing, But like the redgamer said free internet and not to mention wireless internet, I have to go spend another $100 to get that on the Xbox. I hope they do something soon. well I don’t think it would matter by now unless mine breaks again and they replace it with a revamped 360. Oh yeah talk about loud I have mine on a glass table and it makes so much noise you can here it anywhere in the house if your upstairs or down. Man it’s loud

    a quick figure

    PS3 $299
    wireless internet built in
    blue ray built in

    TOTAL $299

    XBOX 360 $299
    wireless internet $100
    blue ray nonexistent
    so what $100-$200
    Repair $100

    TOTAL $600-$700

    I just don’t know how they even sale these things anymore the PS3 is such a better value

      The price list comparison for xbox vs ps3 never gets old lol. The 360 controller is nearly perfect. First person shooters and racers, it’s the best thing out there. The only thing I don’t like about it is the D-Pad. It’s only 4 way, and it sucks. So playing Marvel vs Capcom 2 or Street Fighter 4 is impossible. If you took ps3’s D-Pad and put it on the 360’s controller, it would be perfect

    The PS3 operating system and online experiences are pretty clunky and poor, especially compared with the 360.

    I also agree with you that the 360’s controller is a dream to use. .. but as you pointed out, the 360 has some baggage.

    Both systems have virtues and faults. Stick with good games and you will always be happy.

      I will admit when i’m on my PS3 I feel a little lonely online. The stores and online game play still have a long way to go. I really wish you could combine features from both. The PS3 game library is still has some catching up to do too. Don’t get me wrong I love the 360 and it’s games but I got to the point were I was sick of it breaking and breaking those same great games.
