So I'm thinking about getting one of these bad boys in the near future. I'm leaning towards the XBox 360, simply because it's cheaper than the PS3, and the only exclusive game the Ps3 has (that I'm interested in) is MGS4, and I can live without that. Also, taking out backwards compatibility? My Ps2 is still pimpin, but the principle of the matter still stands. Then again, I have this long bias against Xboxes.

Any thoughts?

I've got an xbox 360.

I like it.

I got no complaints.

I bought a Wii and it was terrible and I sold it after like a month. Since you didn't mention that as an option, I assume you already know that.

If I were to buy another console it would without a doubt be an Xbox 360.

Ya... cost/benefit is better on the 360 than the PS3, imo.

That's what I thought back when I got it, and I think it still.

Yeah, Wii only has Twilight Princess and SSBB, and a whole bunch of motion gimmicks.

So I'm looking at the different 360 packages. The basic one has 256mb of storage. Would that be enough for just game saves? I'm not sure how large the average 360 game save is. If it's anything like the PS2, it'll be more than enough.

It's more than enough. You would want more if you're concerned with downloading demos, downloading content for games (sometimes, 360 games will have extra content for download, either free or for cost), and saving movies and shit to the 360.

Otherwise, don't sweat it.

I'd go with the hard drive if you can afford it. Lots of col stuff to download.

I downloaded SotN, for instance.
