Xbox 360 in the Crib, YO!

December 18, 2006

We decided to take the plunge!  My wife and I are both fans of video games.  We are mostly PC gamers, with her mainly into adventure games and myself into First Person Shooters (FPS) and Real-Time Strategy (RTS) variants.  After much debate, we decided to go with an Xbox 360 for the following reasons:

  1. Cheaper than a PS3
  2. Able to actually find one in stores
  3. Better online interaction (IMs, rankings, etc)
  4. Ability to network with other Windows Based PCs
  5. Good library of games
  6. Pro System came with a Free Copy of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
  7. Viva Pinata

After playing with the console for some time, here are some additional reasons why we’re glad we got the console:

  1. Wireless Controllers and the ability to play sitting comfortable on the couch
  2. Jamming to the graphics on a 56″ HDTV
  3. Playing in a common area for the whole family to enjoy
  4. Receiving mockery from the whole family when you die

Overall, we’re pretty happy with the system and can see hours of family fun ahead of with the Xbox 360.
