I want to buy an Xbox, but which one!

So i am bored, just had surgery, so i can not move for an other 2 month!

So i think an Xbox would help me kill time!

i would really like a PS3 but that is way to much money and the games are just to rare and expensive!

now, i dont know if it is the same in the US, but here in EU there are 3 Xbox:

xbox 360 arcade = 179
xbox 360 = 239
xbox 360 elite = 299

now they all come with different things, like HDD and others, but isnt a gaming console just to play games any more?

all i want my Xbox to do is play a couple racing games and fighting games, i am not interested in online gaming, not now!
Is one faster than the other? or what?

thanks

Re: I want to buy an Xbox, but which one!

Personally I would never get a xbox 360. I'm on my 5th one in 3.5years. They are absolute garbage in terms of quality. If I were you I'd save up some more money and go with a ps3. After my 360 died last time, I made the decision to never buy another game for my 360, except for gears of war 2, other than that everything I buy will only be for my ps3. If you go with 360 I hope you have better luck with it than I have.

Elite is win. Core/arcade is fail, it wont even play non-360 games. the inbetween is for those college kids on a budget who cant quite shell the full price for elite.

so yeah, buy the elite

Re: I want to buy an Xbox, but which one!

elite is overpriced, the normal xbox 360 "the one in the middle" was known as the pro a year or so ago.

buy that one, ive had mines for almost 2 years. it pooped on me once but i got it replaced for free

youll save $100 because the harddrive is big enough. i kind of feel the elite is unecissary.

Re: I want to buy an Xbox, but which one!

Yeah the elite is an overkill for most, its the perfect time to get a 360, the amount of Grade A games coming out is staggering. Also the hardware issues are mostly solved, i had my launch 360 for 3 years and it died on me half a year ago and thats when i bought the elite and sent the old one for repair( free of charge ) and sold it.

Overall i would still get a 360 over a ps3 even with the rrod problem...

Re: I want to buy an Xbox, but which one!

I dunno, the price difference isn't all that much between the PS3 and the 360 top 'trims' and the PS3 has the very nice advantage of being able to play blue ray disks, which the 360 can't do. A 360 + blue ray player would be significantly more then just buying a PS3.

just my 2 cents.

Re: I want to buy an Xbox, but which one!

?

there is 180 price difference, and i do not care for Blue ray disk, for me regular dvds are good enough, and there is no ways i will pay 40 bucks for a DVD!

but the graffix of the ps3 are amazing!!!!!
