    Hi,

    1.I was thinking of buying a new PC with the following specs:

    AMD X2 4200+
    2 GB DDR RAM @ 400 Mhz
    Asus n-Force 4 SLI Motherboard
    Geforce 7800 GT
    etc.

    Total cost :Rs 75,000

    OR

    2.A XBOX 360 Premium edition from ebay or when it launches here(see below).
    A good 29" TV

    Total cost :Rs 45,000 (approx.)

    I also hear that microsoft will officially launch the 360 on October 21st.Check out http://assets.xbox.com/en-in/

    So guys,which option is better in the loooong run.

    Option 1 OR Option 2 ?

    Keep in mind that X-Box 360 and PS3 games will cost atleast Rs. 3000 each and you won't find pirated games.

    I suggest go for the second option.Bcoz once u buy Xbox u will be assured of playing any games ill successor of 360 appears.in case of pc u have to upgrade it again and again.

    Hey so ur telling him to buy PC and I want to tell u that Original games also cost around Rs.2000!!!

    So what u say???

    Hey gecko,

    If ur are interested in gaming go for Xbox360(if can;t wait for PS3) otherwies go for PS3!!!.

    Ur pc cannot even give 1/4 of the FPS that these consoles will give!! and gaming experience is awesome as I already have played Xbox 360 but waiting for PS3 launch on Nov.17 in North America.

    And some of the exclusive titles for consoles won't come on PC like:
    PS3 games:
    Killzone(ps3)!!
    Metal Gear Solid 4!!!

    Even if these games come on pc don't tell me that ur PC will be able to play it on highest resolution and graphics!!!

    Ur choice??I am going for PS3 and Killzone will the first game i will buy and run on MY 42" Plasma HDTV!! and 5.1 THX speakers!!U know what I mean...

    one post is enuf gary4gar...

    newez its upon u to decide dude whether u wanna pc for multi things or just a gaming rig...its its for games...may b u cud prefer xb as latest releases r there on it but pc wont run xbox games...or may b pc if u need more than just games

    cheers
     
  11. Option 1 for me.

    PS3 when comes out it will cost you 400$ to 600$.

    Xbox360 is a crap.

    PC becos you can learn new things and play games. Disadvantages in PC is that the PC GPU changes very often :(

    Hey guys, I am thinking of buying either xbox 360 or ps3.But their games cost a bomb in India. So I will go for it only if pirated games will be available.
    Guys do u think pirated games will be available in India?

    I'd say go for the PC ... and then plugin a dx10 card when it is launched .. the PC will catch up with the consoles very soon ...

    For Xbox 360 there will be pirated games 100% avialable coz Microsoft know that most people cannot buy a console due to expensive games thats why they must have left any security holes so that it can play pirated games and people can easily play games on it.

    In case of PS3 it is difficult coz they have changed their PS3 release date from summer's(vacation season) to november just becoz of finalizing copy protection of blue-ray and all ps3 games will be on Blue-ray.So they are seroius about piracy and their product (playstation) has a very good name in market SO people will still buy it.

    Then I must say you must have a very poor error of judgement. Anyone who has tried out the X360 will vouch that it's games are far better than the counterpart PC version. I just tried out X360 at our office (they came for promo and demo) and it was awesome! Graphics are amazing.

    If the author of this thread invests so much, then I would suggest wait for the Xbox 360 and buy it. It will be worth the wait.

    How am I promoting piracy? Did I tell him how to download games off the net? Did I tell him where he can get a mod chip? All I said is that you should be aware of the high cost of games when you buy a console.
