    3rd person, stealth.

    It's supposed to be slower than things like CoD, which is why people get annoyed with runners.[Citation needed]
    :/ Opposite opinion to your 2nd statement. If that was the case, their need to push out their performance would be negligible. Which dashboard do you see? I only ever see games on mine? I'm on there daily too, so..... confused!

    Haters be hating runners! Just can't scroll and hit us fast enough lol. Ran round this guy in circles once, after failing a roof kill, they must have been new, i was laughing so much until i killed him. Even then, oh the stomach pains.

    GTA is serious? In what way?! You do exactly the same as Saints Row, only... it's less fun. Saints row is just a laughing hour.. or two... or three.

    Never buy season passes. I learned that with BF3.

    There are a total of 242 (although being Wikipedia it may not be entirely accurate.

    Of those 242 the vast majority are just reworks of old classics, slightly tweaked versions of games available on other consoles or games I've never even heard of. I like Forza, but being tied in to a console for the sake of one franchise? Not gonna happen!

    its worked out ok for me on forza in the past but tbh im getting sick of paid for dlc

    the last i remember of saints row was v1 not played any since that i remember not hating so much as not caring but ive set my 360 to download the demo of 3 (granted as its turned off wont help till i get home but its done)

    as to exclusives depends how much you want them i really enjoyed metropolis street racer on the dreamcast so when progect gotham went to the xbox that pretty much pushed me that way. Though ive had various playstations for gtx and decided each time that the game wasnt worth it only reason i have a ps3 is a "future proof" blueray player bought the odd game as well but its mainly a blueray player

    I learned it with AC3.I bought it, along with a year of XBL and only used it for a few months. It runs out at the end of July and I'm paying again.

    TBH I cancelled XBL outright. Ironically when I had to install GfWL for a game on PC, it started bugging me about my Gold subscription being lapsed.

    And yeah, agree with tiring of DLC. I took interest in Neverwinter Online for example, but not even released and they are selling $200 "starter packs." If I paid $200 I'd never expect to pay for anything again in a game, instead I caught some screenshots of the market. 4000ZEN for a mount, it's £10 for 1000ZEN. Do the math. :|

    And the trend for paying for non-content like lockboxes, inventory space and server transfers (even in Tapped Out the Mystery Boxes and Buddahs are useless). Oh great now I'm starting again on this topic...

    and none of of them are worth getting an xbox for. MS has the worst list of exclusives from all the consoles.

    It's £40 a year, but that's the value of another game or 4. When I've paid for the internet connection, the console/pc and the game the last thing I want to pay for is another subscription service to use the things I've already paid for. Personally I think its a terrible model for consumers.

    Yeah, but about 30% of them are frigging brilliant!

    70% not. 30% for. Some cracking solo / co-op / online games there.

    If it's a terrible model for consumers, why are they the largest seller of consoles?

    PS, PS2 and Wii have all sold more. (edit: beaten to it)

    Its widely reported the PS3 also overtook 360 by the end of 2012 outdated reports have them within 1.5% of each other.

    TBF, they've got a good headstart.

    And it's 2 consoles combined. [GBC games != GB games.]
