Xbox or Xbox360? - 08-28-2006 , 09:57 PM


Just wondering what the majority of you are still playing Halo and Halo 2 on. With Halo 3 still so far out on the horizon, I don't see anything worthy of my $400 to get the Xbox360 right now, but I may be overlooking some benefits of playing Halo and Halo 2 through emulation on the Xbox360.

No benifits for Halo and Halo 2 on the Xbox 360, except for mildly better graphics. If you are going to purchase a system, though, make sure to get the 360, because it is a bad investment to buy an Xbox just to hold you over until Halo 3.

I already have an Xbox...just wondering if it is worth it to get the Xbox360 even though I have very little interest in the games available right now for the system. In other words...is Halo and Halo 2 on Xbox360 worth the price of admission (along with an occasional game or two) until Halo 3 comes along?

If you're happy w/ playing H1 and H2 on an original XBox, then keep it, no need to go fancy. I got a 360 because of games like Dead Rising and Quake IV (I love the Quake series, plus it comes w/ Quake II, all the better for me). But if you don't have any interest, well... I'd just wait until around March to buy one, a little before Halo 3 comes out, so you can actually get an XBox 360. I wouldn't wait until that last month to buy one, who knows what'll happen there.

There are a lot of great games for the 360 right now. There is Dead Rising, Oblivion, Call of Duty, Saints Row, and Condemned right now. Also you are probably going to want to get one if your pc sucks for gaming for the game Spore. That will be out next year though.

Well, I don't have a 360, but my friend does.

Apparently, Oblivion is an extremely hot title.

But, the 360 is not limited to just playing games. The dashboard is actually LOADS of fun. As ridiculous as it sounds, it's fun as hell downloading games demos and trailers on the very user friendly dashboard. Virtually, you have alot of great games available to already by buying a 360. There's no need to buy any games for the 360 since you can download the demos and spend your time playing them isntead of searching for good games. .

The 360 is better in my opinion, I personallly think the dashboard is more fun than Halo 2 itself.

So true, so true... I love the way they've improved the Dashboard over the crappy Xbox one.
