    Netflix, iPlayer, Facebook [Twitter?], youtube, dvds, music cds...

    The 360 isn't a games console. It's a media centre.

    If the 720 plays games, and ONLY plays games, then I might consider it. Otherwise, I've had enough of this.

    I don't understand why you're getting so personal in this thread. It's a console. Everyone here has said they have consoles already, just some of us are saying we don't think we'll bother with the next Xbox, simply because PC and console have converged and met in the middle and we're happy with the machines we have (often connected to big TVs with a controller anyway). I thought the whole idea of opinions was everyone had one?

    Hmpf, you call it a media centre, i call it a games console with added features. Potatoe Patata. Same difference.

    It's like having a old school mercedes, and saying you can't have Sat Nav in it, else it'll become something different than a simple car (kind of... you know what i mean, don't you? You do... )

    I'll agree, that the XBLA is a PAIN to search through, and i'm not prepared to try and check up to see which is available on the Xbox but isn't available on the PC. It'll take a good few hours. However, some of the games i've mentioned on here are Xbox limited.

    There is hardly a noticeable different in the Gpus! So nvidia rumors show anyway. People buy the xbox for the online experience. Hardcore PS fans have converted to xbox for THIS reason. You ask thousands, tens of thousands infact, and the only thing stopping them coming over is the £40 a year online contract, which is less than a 50p a day!!!!

    Not playing online is like driving a car without wheels. You're like a flintstone. (Eve was one of the greatest games ever.) However, with your commitments, it's a fair call :P

    Nothing personal, just boggling. I'm sure a lot of people on here will buy the new xbox, be it 6 months later, or a year later. I'll dig up this thread when you do :P

    depends on the game final fantasy 13 for instance has no need of online play. PGR/forza do benefit from it but i do spend more time these days offline (though i dont have a gold account bt cant provide a decent enough service) i do miss some things about online but too often you just get stuffed in a room full of @:*&s who trash talk swear then quit when you leave them in your dust

    as to buying probably depends on launch titles and backward compatability i dont want 4 consoles (5 if you include the dreamcast) cluttering up the front room though i could lose the wii cant remember the last time i turned it on

    Play Assassin's Creed.

    You don't really get that with the online part. Though people do have annoying tactics. And by tactics, I mean running all over the [censored] map like an idiot.

    Agree with 13, and majority of the FF. Pgr / forza / f1 has to be the funniest to play. Do a 360 on the lineup, and drive into others as they come racing down the track. My goodness, the verbal abuse on the mic is slaughterablinglaughing.

    Nope. It's all about the focus.

    Microsoft [and Sony] are pusing "social" more and more. It's less about playing good games, and more about socialising while doing it.

    Microsoft are also pushing Xbox as a media centre. Most of the ads I've seen on the dashboard are for Netflix, Love Film or on-demand movies. The only non-film ones I've seen are for CoD.

    3rd person, stealth.

    It's supposed to be slower than things like CoD, which is why people get annoyed with runners.[Citation needed]
