Prior to this summer, my plan was to buy a PS3. This changed due to multiple things, including something I won't mention that everyone knows well about, that made international headlines, months ago. Plus, little whispers from friends convinced me, the 360 was the right choice for me.
Now, I do have some questions. First, I was thinking about getting a wired controller, but someone I talked to made this off-hand comment that I'll "have to replace it within a year because the plug wears out too fast." Is that an issue? I could see there being a problem if you plug-in and unplug something a lot, but if it's left plugged-in, I fail to see it wearing out, unless it's made from a decaying material.
Next, I've installed my games, as to save wear and tear on the disc drive. The less the motor has to spin, the longer it will last. Though, it doesn't seem to have lessened loading times. For the most part, they're not all that long to begin with, but it's something I thought I would mention, anyway.
Lastly, I'm looking for some good Fable-type action RPG's. I know there's Fable 2 and III, but I'd like to know what else there is. Last generation, I loved both installments of Fable (regular and TLC), Jade Empire, and as bad as it makes my taste in games look, I really liked Sudeki. I do have Morrowind, and am familiar with Oblivion, and the upcoming Skyrim.
Sorry for the bombardment of questions.
Anyway, I've had zero regrets since purchasing my 360...well, no. Not quite. I regret that I didn't buy one some years back! Though, there is peace of mind, knowing the "red ring of death" issue has long-been resolved. My household is a two-360 household. My brother plays on one, and I play on the other. Yeah. It's pretty hardcore. I've gone through quite a bit of batteries. No, there's nothing wrong with my controller; I just have played that much. I expect the competition's online store will go bankrupt since my move to the 360. No longer is my PSP the "only up-to-date system" in my home. Sorry, but I cannot justify paying $170 for a handheld regardless of its tru-3D feature.
So, that's that. I'm a novice-level gamer, but if anyone feels like playing any games together, just drop me a message or friend me or somethin'. I don't really do any tuning in racing games, so I wouldn't be much in the line of competition in Forza 4 or any of my racing games.
