Oooooh. I see. Now your story changes. Now you're just dropping 700 bucks to play on the screen you called "tiny". And guess what? It's still not portable.
For someone who continually states that this thread is a waste, you're certainly responding a lot.
I didn't even mention the pathetic X-Box live subscription service, which amounts to a cool 150 bucks a year.
darkloki felt the need to start comparing prices, so i showed him that you can get a decent setup for real cheap, that is all. while we're on the subject, xbox live comes with xbox. and After that, you always get 3 months free when you buy a game, also the real prices are herehttp://www.xbox365.com/news.cgi?id=GGuNPduGLN08290056
7.99 a month, thats like guild wars prices. 7.99 for a year of online gaming with all games, or 7.99 to play guildwars on your laptop..
anyway i was meerely trying to prove darkloki wrong about him saying an xbox setup would cost more.
Laptops are good Xbox is good, why can't we all just get along and kill this thread while we're at it because yeah, whoever started this thread didn't think how protective people are of their laptops and how they'l say anything to justify their 2000$ purchase, even if they don't know they are correct, even if they aren't even informed... they just can't accept that there is another system out there that plays games identically, if not better for a fraction of the cost, so it MUST be shittyer than our laptops.
Xbox360 has the power/capabilities of a 2-3000$ computer (gaming wise), thats all there is to it.
Microsoft is loosing lots of money on each console they sell because it costs so much to make but their selling it so damn cheap.
I know people say their computers can do a whole lot more, and you pay for that, but if all we're talking about is gaming then that is irrelevant.
this is my last post on this thread and hopefully it'l go down the list and into the archives never to be seen again.
Both are good for gaming, the xbox360 is proven to have more power than 7800gtx sli, and is far cheaper, we've already bought our laptops, so this is not a "pick one" thread, its just acomparison of the two. But gaming isnt all about raw power and graphics, its about the gameplay, and alot of guys on here just love their PC games, i being one of them, but i just can't sit back and ignore this whole xbox360 thing, its the first time ever that a console beats out any pc available ont he market (power/graphics wise), and for a logn time too. Xbox360 will be ahead of the pc in the graphics department untill some DirectX10 cards come out. Then the tables will turn, but then a new console will come out that will do DX10..... its a neverending cycle, just this time, the console is a beast.
