Default returning 360 today or tomorrow

well i gave it a shot, had xbox 360 for about 3 weeks now. Its time to return it while i still can. In that 3 weeks time, i used it for about 2-3 hours, maybe 4. PGR3 is fine for a quick race or two, but its just to boring.

media options on 360 are a ****ing joke, i spend more time using the XBMC then 360.

i'm not gonna use a dedicated computer just to transcode files, my second PC is a dedicated server, i'm not gonna load it up with stupid transcoding, because MS won't support DIVX files.

and i tried more games, demos from xbox live.

well when you are watching a movie then you arent doing anything on the pc so I dont see a problem with using the computer..

Yeah it sucks MS doesnt support divx, xvid and all other formats it would have been much better.

but I dont have a problem with transcoder360 as I am not using the pc when I watch the movie. And if you have dual-core then

Yeah, if you only played ONE game and are using it more to stream stuff from Windoze, you wasted your money. There are way better games than PGR3 out there . . .

GoW has a hybrid first person/third person gameplay style. As per FPS how about R6:Vegas or Prey. Most FPS games available for the 360 are also available on the PC but with the 360 you won't need a $2500 PC to run a game like R6 well.

Hmmm... then why even bother buying a console then??? Sounds like you're not a big fan of console gaming in general. IMO the 360 has THE BEST analog gamepad available today. If all you want to do is play FPS games with a mouse and keyboard return your 360 and stick to PC gaming. If on the other hand you TRY to get the hang of playing your favorite style games with a gamepad I really believe that you'll have an awesome time.

man if I judged all the platforms I have played on off of one game, I would have been a real sad camper.

To each his own though.

Then return that console and never buy another one ever again. Stick to your PC.

i like FPS, racing, RPG, strategy, fighting, sims, and some tycoon style games.

i bought the 360 main for PGR3, before buying the 360 i played PGR3 few times at friends house, like i said in the first post, its a ok game for quick one or two races, but the game is boring for longer play.

There are no other racing games on 360, ok so there is TDU on 360, well after comparing TDU beta on PC and TDU demo on 360, seeing how much better it looks on PC, there is no point in waisting time on 360 version.

FPS on console are a f-ing joke, so that drops out right away.

RPG, not a single good RPG on 360, Oblivion i can play on PC (not even a real RPG), back to NWN2

Strategy on console, again a joke right?

Fighting, well in those 3 weeks the game(demo) that i played the most would be Dear or Alive, but keeping 360 just for that game, after PGR3 dissapoitment? still not worth it

no sims or tycoon games.

back to the store it goes
