- Thinking of buying an Xbox but know not about them, advice please?
Spending a lot of time working away and have done all my PS2 stuff to death. I almost bout an Xbox 360 today but thought I’d run it past you lot first.
250Gb hard drive (advised to go for this above the 4Gb version)
New shape Xbox (non overheating and self destroying version?)
It was £155 with a 6 month guarantee from a shop, used.
Also could do with game advice, I like racing games ( GT4 Nurburgring on PS2 is usual game of choice) and first person shoot em up games or rally games (not rally simulators though, way too hard).
Any advice most welcome even if it steers me towards a PS3.Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
I’d be inclined to spend a bit extra and get a brand new one. Lots of the older secondhand ones have been chipped so they won’t work online or download updates.
However, if you like racing games then you’re in luck. The Forza series will blow you away, as will Grid and the Dirt series. Dirt 3 is brilliant. You will absolutely love that. More still, F1 2012 is involving but can be hard. I really liked Driver: San Francisco too.
First person shooters, there’s loads but Red Dead Redemption and Borderlands 2 are my favourites. You have to get GTA4 and GTA5 is out some point this year I think.Posted 5 years ago
My advice? Don’t bother. At least, not yet.
Sony officially announced the PS4 the other day, which means MS won’t be far behind with the new Xbox. With the new generation on the way, the prices of the last gen machines are soon to crash.
My other piece of advice is to wait for the Steam Box (although you could be waiting for a few more years yet – Valve are notoriously slow at EVERYTHING)Posted 5 years agochvckSubscriberPosted 5 years ago
