    Get a 360, the catalogue is huge and should hold you until the 720 gets a significant price drop. Never buy launch day consoles, they're a rip-off and the games are way over priced too.

    Hi everyone, I just sold my PS2 and I am looking for a replacement console. I'm thinking about the Xbox 360 in 250GB. It's £175 on amazon which is within my budget as I don't want to spend over £200. However, I read online that the Xbox 720 will be out by Xmas this year. Do you think I should wait for that or buy the 360? I'm going to university next year and want to take an Xbox with me, what do you think I should do. Btw I don't play online so will have no need for online gaming, which I have heard rumours that the Xbox 720 is all about online gaming? Should I risk it and pay extra for the 720? Or should I stick with the 360? Thank you for your help x
    If you look on gumtree or ebay you can get a white xbox for about £50 or a black one for £100ish.

    Would tide you over until the 720.

    Get 360 now and play the biggest and best current gen games, then get a PS4 when it comes out, because from what we know so far, the PS4 looks a lot more promising than the 720.

    I'm from Sri Lanka. This is my plan. I got the original XBOX 360 Elite 120 GB with NFS Shift and Forza 3 for free from New Zealand in 2009. I modded it here first for 80 pounds approx at that time and bought backed up games which were burnt on dual layer discs for 35 pounds each. Then last year modded it again for the new dashboard for 27 pounds in a different shop. Got a Kinect as a present and now am selling it.

    Regarding the question, I'm waiting till the specs of 720 is released hope it isnt the same as the rumours, if it then will the PS4. Personally in 85% thinking of buying the PS4 instead of the 720 because from earlier consoles, Sony has made better consoles. Although the XBOX 360 had better games, quality was better on the PS3.

    Hope the 720 releases this year cause me or one of my family members is going to NZ in December so fingers crossed

    I don't want the PS4 to be better than the 720. Means I'd have to sell the old steering wheel and stand. :sad:

    Thing is, if you did a 360 degree turn, you'd just walk right back into it.
    That's why I thought it was brilliant. ;p
