exactly, cosmo is right.
going backwards happens every once in a while. sure, sometimes i like to pick up old games and play it for fun (it lasts for like a half hour at most). still i dont know why we are debating this considering most games that you will want to play from xbox1 will be on the 360
As was pointed out, AFTER you download something from Microsoft, burn it to disc (or order a disc from Microsoft, presumably with shipping and handling costs) and load it into the XBox360, and the XBox360 owners without hard drives are out of luck. (Creating an XBox360 without the hard drive was a stupid move by Microsoft, in my opinion)
Yes, the support will be there for certain games, but it won't be as easy as popping in the disc. Presumably Playstation3 will operate in this manner (just popping in the PS2/PS1 disc), seeing as the Playstation2 did so with Playstation 1 games.
you bought the xbox controller for use with the pc? hmm you didn't like it? gee does that mean its not a good remote for gaming?
There's no need to attack him. Is it that hard to accept that he might not like the controller and might choose, based on that fact, that he doesn't want to buy an XBox360? Is your goal to force everyone to buy an XBox360 even if they don't like it? All that is besides the point though. I think that he was making a comment on the initial topic of the thread: "Who's getting an XBox360." Reading his comment in that context, it makes sense that he is saying that he just bought the controller for his computer and doesn't plan to buy a XBox360 system.
odd, every damn article i've ever read praised the remote. i've used it,its prob the best remote out at this point.
Please don't try to attack everyone that comments here. You're just needlessly flaming someone that made a post that *MIGHT* have been suggesting something. In all likelihood, he was not suggesting anything other than what he stated in his comment. I think you're trying too hard to read between the lines that you're finding stuff that isn't there.
Not only that, but aren't you contradicting yourself here? You've stated a dislike for people pulling things from the media when arguing about consoles, but here you are using the media as proof.
nintendo and it's marketing is "we are aiming for non gamers"
it's only fitting that everyone repeats that when arguing for nintendo.
That's a very directed comment. I love the, "If you can't win the argument attack the arguer" mentality. It's like me saying, "Microsoft says that the XBox360 is the best game platform out there, I love how all the XBox360 supporters repeat that when arguing for Microsoft." It's obvious that you are hung up on the XBox360, and if anyone says anything bad about it, or good about the opposing consoles you'll attack them instead of arguing back with facts. I think that people in this thread should ignore you until you come back with a reasonable demeanor.
thats all i'll say about that
Ok, Forest. ( Sorry, couldn't resist.
