    I just rented it and played a few minutes. Seems pretty solid so far.

    I might opt for a Play Station next time around.

    Well, both systems are good but this game is great and I love Socom and MLB the Show so I'll always be a ps guy. My son has an xbox so I still get to play those games too.

    Microsoft irritated me to no end during the "red ring of death" fiasco and the fact the PS4 is going to be $100 less. Shit adds up when you're buying 3 consoles.

    I also didn't like Microsoft's stance on used games and the must be connected at all times dealio.

    I'll most likely end up with whoever comes to market first in all honesty.

    that's the main reason the 360 beat the ps3 at first. It came out much sooner and everyone bought it. Then when ps3 finally came out it didn't have any good games and I guess it was really hard to write for so it was another year before they started putting out quality games. By then xbox had a huge head start. Eventually ps3 caught up thanks to blu-ray and superior quality hardware. I think they've learned their lesson this time around.

    100% agree... and the PS3 was quite a bit more money. The table seems to be set for a major reversal, I just hope PSN is up to the task .

    Should have been last time around too, but I think the fact the 360 was so much easier to write for trumped any tech advantage the PS3 had.

    You were not the only one, so they reverted back to the way it is now. No more of that bs.

    I saw that. They also should rethink bundling every console with a Kinect.

    I'm still playing MLB2010 in the 'Road to the Show' mode.

    I'm 22 years old with solid numbers. I'm trying to get away from the Whitesox. :jj:

    I have an Xbox that went Red Circle of Death on me for the 2nd time, so I boxed it up with a bunch of games.


    Any advice on proceeding? I thought that I saw that someone took a RCoD Xbox to a gamestop, and got like 70 bucks for it.

    That is my thoughts as well.

    I read a review that made it sound pretty solid and interesting as well, i.e. weaponry is in short supply, so thought must be taken in useage.

    call 1-800-4MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) and see if it's covered under warranty. Make sure to have a serial # close when you call.

    I'd hope they'd try and retain customers during the run up to the launch but knowing Microsoft they'll be condescending pricks.

    MS will repair it for 100 bucks. At this point, dont bother if you are gonna be an early adopter for the new consoles.

    Last of us is an amazing game and you must play stealthy while collecting items to create items like health packs, shivs, bombs, etc. The storyline between the 2 characters as you progress is super compelling as they travel and grow together through a tough time. Prepare to put some time into it...unless you play on easy, which is for faggits.
