    Its nickname is "a spreadsheet in space"...

    It can suck the life from you, and the money from your wallet.

    I was genuinely upset when I found out that Valve had Pulled the originally planned cross platform play from CS:GO at the last minute. I really hope one day a we get a cross-platform FPS.

    I'll buy the new Xbox simply because I DO like gaming on a console and all the friends I game with are non-pc gamers. I've been brought up playing local multiplayer games and you don't really get that from PC.
    Always online doesn't bother me, I'm always online now be it on PC, Xbox, PS3 or my PSP. If I don't have an internet connection, I do something else. Not too sure about Illumiroom though.

    I will however, still play my PC more, I've just got a lot more games on it to play Steam deals are insane, meaning I always end up buying more games. I find a keyboard and mouse easier to use for anything that isn't a hack and slash or racer, and even then I've been playing them on PC recently with a wireless xbox controller and the M$ wireless adapter.

    tl;dr - buying neXtbox, probably gather dust after 6 months, except for the odd multiplayer session every now and then.

    I got an Xbox 360 free with a mobile contract a few years ago. I loved it at the time, and playing GTA online with mates was epic. Plus N or Arcade was amazing! I just hated paying to play online, plus everyone stopped playing it (not to mention wife agro from hogging the TV) so sold it and went back to PC.

    The one thing I really do like though is Microsoft's Xbox controller. Bought one for my PC and use it for the likes of GRID, Batman and Assassins Creed.

    That would be like playing against bots on easy!

    Only way that would be a remotely level playing field is if the consoles have the "targeting assist" aimbot that they all need to be playable, and that would just result in people having "quick scoping skills"

    Imo
    consoles > PC for sports/beatemup/driving (without a wheel)
    PC > consoles for everything else

    And that's mainly due to the controller vs keyboard/mouse and you can always buy a controller for the PC.

    The last 2 360's I've bought, were the Halo: Reach and the Halo 4 limited edition boxes.

    Unless I see a huge difference in specs between the new Xbox and PS4, I'm currently thinking about buying a PS4..

    Thinking about it, I've "skipped" during generations.. from Sony (PS2), to MS (Xbox360)..

    I think the biggest factor, will always be what my friends are going to be buying!

    PS: I'm playing Pokémon on my 3DS XL rather than 360 atm :P

    I can't believe this is still going on! Well I can really it's been going on for more than 25 years in one form or another.

    I'll keepy buying Xbox whilst Halo is on it as I'm hooked!

    I also love pro evo and the batman games (with the controller I'm awesome at batman)

    Everything else I prefer on PC though. I couldn't imagine Total War Games on Consoles these days.

    Aah Dave..

    The question is... are you hooked on Bungie Halo, or 343 Halo though?

    Destiny (Destiny - Official site of Destiny the Game) is getting PS (3 and 4) exclusive content...

    Both!

    Bungie led the way and now 343 are taking the game to places I always hoped it would go.

    And they're taking all the literature as cannon and using the novels to dictate the game storyline which is nice.

    I was chuffed to bits with four, up there as possibly the best yet.

    Something we can actually agree on. I was buzzing when i heard this. However, looking back at it, we'd cream all over them if we were on the PC.

    Xbox will always rein over PS for online gaming. You're decision is made for you!

    Can give an exception to playing Pokemon. A true Mans game. lol

    3 & 4 joint top for me. Then 2, then 1, then Reach and finally ODST.

    One will allways be my ultimate favourite, I'll never get that sense of awe playing a halo game for the first time. Not like I did whilst escaping from the Pillar of Autumn.

    However Four very nearly had the same effect. It's simply incredible. I had no idea the xbox could look that good & play that well at the same time

    Mmm.. Halo Wars...

    I agree with Dave.. 4 looked amazing, but I hated the ending! >.< (not seeing MC come out of his armour, but the last "battle/quicktime sequence")
