Five years and going strong, the Xbox 360 shows no sign of slowing down. At CES last week, Microsoft said the Xbox 360 is its system of the long term; in other words don’t go looking for the next Xbox at GameStop anytime soon and with good reason; the system has proven its strength and longevity over the years. But you’re only now moving away from a last gen console and are more than ready to jump into the seventh generation. Surely you’ll need help making the right decision on what system to purchase?
Allow us to lead you down a good and exciting path, a path that leads straight to Microsoft’s flagship console: the Xbox 360. We have five excellent reasons why it’s the right choice:
What is promising to be the most revolutionary piece of hardware to hit the gaming industry for years, will only be available on Xbox 360. Like it or not, believe it or not, Microsoft’s Project Natal is coming like a raging storm that is set to cover and overwhelm all in its path. Developers the world over are preparing games that’ll take full advantage of Natal, games you’ll need nothing but your motions to play; imagine that.
Project Natal Will be out late this year and Microsoft has promised its launch will be like that of a new console. It’s been rumored that Capcom is developing a hardcore title for the motion device, a title that’ll only be playable on the Xbox 360.
Game Room: Virtual Arcade
Remember the old classic games? Of course you do. if time would allow, we could talk about the games that really got us into this hobby. They’re not as complicated as the intricate ones being made today but we reckon they are amongst some of the best! Centipede, Rocket Knight Adventures, Streets of Rage, the old Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat games. Yes indeed, gamers the world over would pay extra cash to get their hands on them. Well guess what? You can just that with Microsoft’s new service dubbed Game Room.
The arcade will launch this coming Spring for Xbox 360 and PC with 30 original arcade and console classics, including “Centipede,” “Asteroids Deluxe,” and “Super Cobra.” Players will be able to invite friends to your own custom arcade to challenge each other. The retro games will appear in their original cabinets and can be placed anywhere in your arcade.
The Live Experience:
There’s no denying it: Xbox Live has revolutionized the way we play games forever; from its inception, the goal was to bring people together although they could be thousands of miles away to experience entertainment at its best. The service has done exactly that and then some. Microsoft is constantly adding new features to its second-to-non service, making sure it stays ahead of the rest.
Features like: Twitter, Facebook, Sky, and Netflix are amongst some of the great services offered through Live, and the roster keeps on building. There’s no doubt you’ll find Live an excellent place to be, and oh, it’s only on Xbox 360.
A plethora of them to be precise: Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Crackdown 2, Mass Effect 2 and the giant in the room Halo: Reach. There’s not much that can be said against the Xbox lineup this year, it’s simply stellar. Sure some are on PC but if you want to enjoy anyone of the aforementioned titles on a console, it’s only available on the Xbox 360.
Yes it’s true, you could offer me all kinds of great deals, but the most significant would be a price cut on the item I’m trying to purchase, and if Michael Pachter is to be believed, when summer arrives, not only will Microsoft be able to cut the price of the Xbox 360, but they’ll also be able to add more value to it made possible by effective cost cutting. In fact, a 250GB hard drive Xbox 360 could be yours for just $299.
Nothing can beat that price; nothing.
So now that we’ve made plain to you the amount of value the Xbox 360 offers, you’re still standing here looking at us? Go withdraw some cash and do yourself some good. Also, Mass Effect 2 is around the bend, make sure take extra cash for it too.
We have a PS3 Slim Bundled with Uncharted 2 and it’s yours for free! Take it!
