I've always assumed people disliked microsoft for cornering the market and making mediocre products.
I don't really care though. I just want my fable 2.

Whats mediocre about Windows XP? You can't get the shit on it or preform on it anywhere else, its a amazing OS. The closest you could get is running Linux and using wine for every program that isn't written to work on it.

the xbox 360, i hated it mostly because all my friends had to replace the system or simply got rid of it, also to me it seem like a watered down pc. i don't mind the XP os, it worked great. i don't hate bill gates cause his made smart moves(and made billions of dollars), i have nothing against him in terms of the company (the guy gives out thousands of good jobs) but the system just seems like a rip off. paying money just be online, the wimpy hard drive (if i dare call it, yes i know the wii has this sd cards, but they’re not calling them hard drives ) the games look fun but forget playing them, the system has a hard time working in the first place. I might as well just use it as a paper weight, then a gaming machine cause the "red ring of death" act like a biblical plague that takes out every first born Xbox in the world cause they know you would have any problem throwing money at them (the ones that are still on their first one put sheep’s blood on their door frames ). But people just wise up and go “screw this I’ll just get a system that that won’t die as fast as Mario jumping into pit of spikes with head crabs, the chain saw sisters and every ninja from ninja gaiden waiting to scratch, slash, mangle what is left of him as he jumps down.”
Yeah I don’t like it.

Dude, most of your arguments, are relevant...12 months ago.

Well, to be fair, what you say about hard drives is true, the 360 sucks, but 120 gig is a sufficient amount if you willing to be ripped off in price.

But a watered down PC? That's what both "HD" consoles are.

Would you say the same thing about vista?
Why does microsoft need defending anyway?

Because they wont fix the damn Red Ring Of Death they just keep pumping out more versions of Xbox 360's. People Xboxs are still overheating come on man this is terrible I know people who went through 4 or 5 xboxs this is why people are angry with microsoft in the gaming field. Also xbox games ported on the PC you have pay that stupid xbox live fee in order to play online games on your PC thats horrible.



The issue is fixed... get accurate information and facts to back things up There is only 3 versions of the 360 and the 60gig change was cause making 20gig concoles cost the same/more than making there 60gig counterparts. Most people who hen throught more than 2 xboxs have serious issues in looking after there stuff. *dont leave it in a very small space even PS3 overheats in those situations but luckly it turns it self off*. Anyone loving the new 360 price cuts?


xp owns, granted Vista kinda sucks but Im using it for 1 year and have no issues...and if you do wait a little while longer till its 'perfected' (Vista is waaay less buggy now).


My main problems with Vista is that is a resource hog, so unless I get Vista Ultimate (the 64bit version assuming theres a 32 bit one) I will have a gig of ram that I want to use eaten up.



I totally agree with this point thats why so many people have issues running it. Your need a decent computer to even run it without and programs running on top. I get no real issues cause I have a decent computer and a amazing laptop.


P.S I hate alienware much much more there products have like an extra £400 ($800) slaped on just for the logo.
