Mojohand, we have the Wii, but don't really use it all that much. I got kind of bored with bowling and tennis, and I haven't found a good 2-player shooter. I probably just need to look more.
I play a lot of PC games, but I'm tired of new games eventually outstripping my PC's capabilities. Is it true that X-Box never needs upgrading? I know about adding a hard drive, but is it still using the originial processors?
I recently bought a 360 Elite and it only cost me £20 for an extended warranty.
Consoles never require upgrades, but in every generation of consoles they tweak the design every so often and put the update into production without advertising it.
For instance - the very first incarnation of the original Playstation had a CD drive that rivals anything found in high end hi-fi equipment. But every subsequent version had a different, inferior drive.
I believe the Xbox 360 has a different CPU than the earlier models.
