- (March 30, 2006) Microsoft introduced the hard drive to consoles as standard equipment with the original Xbox (five years ago), but you don't get one with the 360 core pack. Unless you spend $100 more to buy one separately, you don't get downloadable content or backwards compatibility with original Xbox games either on your new 360, but you do get longer load times. The 360 core pack lacks a few other things as well. You don't get a wireless controller or HDTV component cables. Xbox 360 is being marketed as a "next generation" system, but a wired controller and composite tv cables aren't very next gen. (The original PSone had these.) Anyone serious about gaming will want to go for the premium pack as i
- (November 28, 2005) Let me start off by saying I don't believe anyone should get the core system. The core system was introduced in order to funnel off some heat for the $100 price increase for the console in the current generation. By releasing the core system users who bought the real system could feel a sense of value and feel the console's price point was really $299. While I think this tactic is far less shady than the bundling of useless accessories with the PSP, it is nevertheless obviously the real Xbox 360. All the accessories that come with the regular version just spell out next gen (Wireless controllers and HDTV Component Cables). When you hear them talk about the core accommodating to "niche users"
- (November 10, 2004) Seeing as how there are so many non-reviews on here I thought i'd write an actual review (from somone who owns all 3 consoles and has no console bias whatsoever) instead of all the useless stuff from fanboys and haters. Well it's been quite awhile since Halo 1 which I played for countless hours (always in co-op) with a friend. Sometimes we'd be attacking covenant forces and sometimes we'd be killing each other endlessly for fun. The good news is Halo 2 retains all of the greatness from the first and essentially adds more. Some of the more noteable new features is the removal of the health, increased action, a harder legendary mode, more multiplayer capabilities, more vehicles, ability
- (09/09/2013) I want to say that I was very very upset with this site. I had gone on here looking to purchase an x box 360 console at the lowest price I could. From what I could see I liked other reviews about this site, and I thought that I was looking in the right place. When I found this deal I was more than excited. An xbox for super super cheap! There was nowhere else that could come close to that price. So, when I saw the incredible price and that it was actually for the console I clicked on the item to go and purchase it. Turns out that the item previously listed was not the item for sale, and someone that doesn't know what they are doing on the internet could have been tricked into purchasing something that they did not intend to. I was so excited to find this site, and now I don't think that I will ever shop on it again.
- (07/31/2013) I didn't even want to give it a star. If you're a first time RTS user, then this is for you. Everyone can win by rushing with basic units. It's incredibly easy and although the campaign is cool, the multiplayer is severely lacking. I've played Command and Conquer for year, and Halo Wars did not even come close to that level of gameplay. If I played as the Brute Chief and did a one vs one, I won in 16:08 every single time. This game is fun for the first bit, then it quickly fades away and becomes boring. Now I haven't played it since it came out, if they've added more complexity to it, good. But when I played it, it wasn't even worth one star.
