Here's my review:
Why would you buy a console for one game?
Well.....every now and then a game comes out that is amazing. And it happens that this game is a one console type game...like Gears. So when I was deciding whether or not to buy a PS3 or a 360. I said...hmm...I will buy the 360 cause I know how bad *** gears is. Why does anyone buy anything?
Point is that it is putting all eggs in one basket. And as an investment, it's not smart.
Hmmm...well I didnt buy my 360 as an investment. And these days you have to chose a console. I bought the one with the games I like.
I actually have all 3 major consoles, but the 360 was my first.
Do you play video games? Any games out there that you feel you have to own?
I just want to know what DeVotchka song that is playing during the previews for the game..it was in little miss sunshine
You don't have to chose a console these days, though they are expensive. Just go with what you like - ie what console has the games you like.
Of course you bought it as an investment. You didn't really buy it just to get Gears and then that's it, or wait for the next Gears.
I play video games, but I only have a PS3. There are many games to recommend on it (aside from multi-platforms).
I think we are talking about the same thing, but in different ways. I agree TOTALLY that both PS3 and 360 have great games...hence why I have both.
But I initially bought the 360, cause like 10 people I work with had Gears, and I was tired of being left out. Might not have been smart, but I dont regret it.
When I think of investment, I think of something that I am going to get a positive return on. If anything I think that video games give me a negative return because there are so many other things that I should be doing around the house or studying to make rank..ect...instead of playing games. But its my choice...stupid or not.
I wouldn't regret getting a 360 because of Gears though, the game is great (even if I have never played it) though the producer is a douche.
And the 360 has greats game anyway, so the there isnt much of a risk since all consoles have great games.
