Breaking up with Xbox 360.

Sit down, we need to talk.

It’s no secret that things haven’t been perfect between us. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy spending time with you and we've had some really fun times together. Hell, I remember the night we met like it was only yesterday. You were so cool and glamorous — like no other console I’d ever met. I dumped PlayStation 2 for you on the spot. She was pissed, but I didn't care: it was love at first sight.

For a while, everything was perfect. The online gaming, the awesome graphics, the constant stream of kickass games: it was like a dream come true. But then you started to change.

I guess my feelings changed towards you on our third Xbox Live Gold anniversary. Once again, you expected me to renew our relationship with cold, hard cash. It was the same story on our first wireless date together — $100+ for a WiFi adaptor? I felt so used! Then you tried to charge me to look at free social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. That was the final straw.

All I wanted to do was spend time with you, and you kept treating me like your own personal money tree. Where was the love? Where was the respect? Y'know, they have a name for consoles like you — Kanye West wrote a song about it.

And it's not just about the money. You’re also the most high-maintenance console I've ever met. If I don’t treat you like a piece of porcelain glass, you start to give me the ‘silent treatment’ (AKA Red Ring of Death). I want a console I can be rough with for a change; a console that doesn’t mind getting a little dirty.

Look, there’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just come right out with it. I've fallen for somebody else. I’m not telling you this to hurt you, but you deserve to know the truth. It's not something I planned, it just kind of happened. No, it's not Nintendo Wii. If it were, this would be a whole lot easier.

I’ve - I've been seeing PS3 Slim behind your back. It's been going on for around a month now. When I said I was too tired to go online that night, I was secretly using the PlayStation Network. And when I said I was watching TV… I was really watching Blu-ray.

I know I said I’d never go back to her, but she’s like a completely different console. When she lost all that weight, I couldn’t help myself — I just had to get my hands on her. Free online gaming, inbuilt WiFi, Blu-ray movies and reliable hardware... how was I supposed to refuse? Besides, I want a console I can grow old with. How many years do you think you have left in you? Two? Well, it’s been fun Xbox 360. I really mean that. Hopefully you'll be able to find it in your heart to forgive me. Until then; au revoir.

We’ll always have Gears of War.
Thoughts?

The last line says it all. Xbox's exclusives are the only reason I want one. Shadow Complex, Halo ODST, Gears...

Sony has what, God of War?

Eh, doesn't matter to me what it says, I like my 360 just fine.

God of War, and something else I can't remember.

Da 360 roks and hes just pissd off bcuz hes xbox broke

On a more serious note, the only part of this post I can sympathize with is the RRoD. And even that is replaceable with a valid warranty. Seriously, you're whack if you buy accessories on the retail market for this console. Things are so much cheaper on this thing called the internet. Also, heard of an Ethernet cable? It plugs into your modem and it does the same thing as the Wireless Adapter and only costs about 20 bucks for a 50ft cable.

Minus the obvious gimmicks on this console (avatar props, etc.) This console still is very good.

I agree, though I would also state that all consoles have their own gimmicks that attract people.

Sounds like he's whining. A lot.

maybe the modem is in the oposite side of the house? maybe he doesnt want a fatass cord running across the floor? even if it isnt and he could use a ethernet cable, thats still 20$ that should have been free.
Same with the yearly 60$ or w/e you have to pay for xbl which should also be free.

btw op ps3 has lbp, god of war, mgs4, killzone 2, resistance 1 & 2, and warhawk.

360 has halo and gears. o0o0o0o

Oh, so just God of War. Although Killzone looks meh; it could be okay. I'd have to play it more.

I've played all the ones you mentioned except MGS4 and Warhawk. I have no interest in Warhawk.

And I swear I'll be quoting this post the next time you tell da Beef or I that a game looks stupid.
