Enjoy the silence!

Posted by swfcfan (264 posts) -

Some of you may remember that I was contemplating getting an Xbox 360 a while back to supplement my PS3 following the world wide price drop of old 360 models after the release of the S (slim) model. Well I got an old 20GB 360 with Splinter cell Conviction. and while the Game was fun my Xbox models lack of HDMI port, wireless online access and small hard drive (which I know could be upgraded) meant that I was never tempted to buy any more games for it.........

Until today!

You see I was playing my PS3 today in my room (with headphones on) while my Fiancé was snoozing on my bed but all she could hear was "Damn screeching" as the Blue ray disk was being read every five seconds. So I turned it off and decided I would buy a new Xbox S with Battlefield 3 for £199.99 / $317.46 USD (rather than buy a Wireless adapter new hard drive etc for my old model). as I will be able to install games to the hard drive.

So now I hope to enjoy the silence with my new 360 rather than Lose Friends & Alienate People with my PS3!

Shame it's going to cost you two discs with Battlefield 3 though ;)

Heh, if net play with free on the Xbox 360, I would probably be using it more - if only for Gears of War 3.
