    So... if you're XBOX 360 fails, just beat the crap out of it until you get the red lights of death.

    Well, towards the end, they turn bogus.

    Mouse and keyboard on a PC for FPS games will always have an edge on console versions played with game controllers.

    And the real reason that porn may not settle the format war is because the Internet is for porn!

    yes - the 3 year warranty on 360's pertains to RROD
    it is the #1 reason for warranty claims

    while it may take a little more skill to play shooters with a controller, (imo) it's easier to move the character around. I agree that the 360 is a good shooter controller ,I prefer it over the DualShock - for both shooters and racers. I think the Wii remote and nunchuck works even better for shooters

    :yes:

    the warranty on my 360 was a myth. i got the red lights and had to pay like 130 buck to get it fixed. then they were supposed to extend the warranty and refund people who already paid to have theirs fixed. yeah never got that check in the mail.

    i've called them. i've called them again. I'm tired of talking to people in India. I do not recommend 360 to anybody. The console is great besides the whole breaking thing. Love halo 3, bioshock, gears and lots of other great games. Anybody who ask me now I tell them to buy a PS3. Its a great deal since the price drops. Plus PS3 has had zero hardware problems compared with 360. Since I bought an HD LCD that Blu-Ray gets more tempting everyday. I'll be a PS3 owner after the holidays. Now if they can get Madden up to 60fps on PS3 I'll be sold completely.
