What could have been...

Posted by nyprimus4, 04 July 2008 · 195 views

I know Xbox 360 is far and away my favorite console this generation but I tried to think of how Microsoft went wrong and ranked them. I tried to keep it to things Microsoft really could have taken care of...

10. Region locked

9. No good Xbox Live Vision support. Sports games don't support it for create a player and no good Vision specific games.

Posted Image

8. No Xbox controller support

Posted Image

7. No built in Wi-fi

Posted Image

6. Discs can scratch, should have had Blu-ray type coating

Posted Image

5. No full backwards compatibility

Posted Image
(MvC2 is backwards compatible with the 360 but it is nearly unplayable due to Microsoft's shoddy emulation job)

4. Terrible D-pad

Posted Image

3. System gets extremely loud and hot

Posted Image

2. Xbox Live still costs money

Posted Image

1. Red Ring of Death

Posted Image

Even after all of this Xbox 360 still surpasses both the Wii and PS3 this generation IMHO. PS3 can't compete with the Xbox 360 in terms of software at this point. The Wii can't compete because it doesn't have the software I'm looking for, the online structure, or graphics.

Xbox is your favorite console by far, yet all your xbox dreams and wishes have been accomplished on the PS3... maybe you switch to Playstation 3.
He does have a PS3, in fact, he is running a second league of MLB 08. I had an xbox 360, but many of these problems just began to eat away at me. So when the MGS4 bundle became available I couldn't pass it up. I'm now a proud owner of a PS3 and couldn't be happier. If anything Microsoft will sooner or later realease their best exclusives for PC, which gives me no use to own a 360 anymore.
I have a feeling I'll be mega-pissed about the region coding once those shmups start coming out in Japan.
You forgot one major oversight... Hard Drive in EVERY sku. I never understood why they thouht it was a good idea. Damn Marketing Dept always screws something up.
I laughed at the picture for "System gets extremely hot and loud."
