    Yeah, but at least it's not as expensive to pick up a 360.

    It's more expensive to keep your PC upgraded to play the games at 360 graphics level [​IMG]


    but I guess if you always have a nice PC why not?

    That's why I'm upgrading my PC instead of getting a 360 [​IMG]

    And a PC doesn't have RROD

    Exactly. $2-300 a year vs $1,050 - $1,400. ( 350 x 3/4 )

    lol a BSOD is when the OS shuts down to prevent harm to your PC or OS. its a good thing, and anyone with some decent knowledge with pc's or some common sense knows what to do to fix it.

    Original 360s have a 16.4% failure rate, and 60% of those are RROD.

    Never got a BSOD on WinXP.. had other problems but never a BSOD XP

    Don't get it.. anyway.. I would spend around R$ 1000 on a decent upgrade.. and it would be good for at least 2 more years..
    a new 360 in Brazil costs around R$ 1500 (something like 700 USD).. I could buy one on Paraguay, were it costs 400-500 USD but then, I wouldn't have Microsoft support.. and if I have a RROD, that's like throwing 400USD in the trash can!

    Original = same hardware as launch day. MS has changed a couple things to reduce the failure rate.

    You can't based failure rates of about 17 million consoles based on a survey based on only 1,000 people.
