How the 360 got its swag back!

XBOX 360 has come back in a big way, at least in America. Sales are up again and I have a couple of theories on why. The 360 is made by an American company, and although the XBOX is not actually made it here it is still an American company. I guess America makes cars too and that doesn’t stop people from buying foreign cars so maybe that isn’t the best theory, but don’t worry I have a couple more.

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 havingĀ  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
