    Hey I've been raising money for about 8 months now and I've raised about $800 and I've narrowed it down to 2 choices of what I should spend it on.
    Either a Traxxas Summit or an Xbox 360 with most of the COD games. I already have most of the games COD game on PC but all my friends have Xbox's.

    I really don't care what one wins I just know that I can't decide.

    Hard choice to make. You need to think about which one you will enjoy more personally. If you think the Traxxas Summit will be great for a couple months than gather dust you might be better off getting the xbox, provided you will get some quality time out of it.

    (Enjoyment level of item * Hours spent using item)/cost of item = leisure device's efficiency
    (ê/H)/$ = È

    But if it was me, I would choose an xbox ;D

    You seem to have missed the point about his friends all playing on the xbox. No point owning the ps3 and being forever alone.

    I have both, PS3 is the best bluray player out there, great for streaming media to your TV (a bit less clunky than the xbox media stuff IMHO). However I get all of my games on xbox for one reason. I have big hands and the xbox controller feels good man.

    But I digress I hardly think it is constructive telling him to get something that he didn't ask for arguably could be considered flame-bait. If so, *grabs popcorn* in before children squabble over ps3/xbox and thread gets locked.

    Luke and LostBoy,

    You've been warned about turning this thread in to an argument. If you can't provide an opinion based on the OP's criteria, don't bother replying.

    Consider this you're last warning before I implement a holiday for the both of you.

    On-topic, Joey's provided a pretty good response. Only you will know which item will give you the most value. Personally, I'd go for the console. You'll have a greater window of opportunity to use it (ie: rainy days, night time etc etc)

    Cheers,

    I have a Xbox 360 and it is Easily the best game console, The controller is Comfortable, you have the option of Kinect (Which is nice.) also they have a better network and games.

    Sounds like you've already made your decision to go for the 360 anyway, but I was going to say that even though the RC car will be very fun at first, it's never long before something breaks on them and then they tend to sit in the garage waiting to be fixed for years.

    What the hell is a Traxxas Summit? A games consoles obviously, but damn i've never heard of it?

    I have an xbox 360, and after seeing friends PS3's in action, i made the right choice.

    Sony lost the plot with the PS3. Looks good on paper though..

    Oh really? Damn...what a hard choice! Ha ha.

    But yes, it would have been collecting dust in no time then, been there done that with a Kyosho Burns.

    I'd have to agree with Joey.

    I've had many instances were i've bought something really expensive in hope of having some outdoor fun (RC Helicopter) but it then eventually gets neglected and collects dust.

    Its very hard to find a toy that you will use forever, and personally as a owner of a monster truck, i find that i lose interest in toys outdoor toys very quickly.

    At least with a gaming console xbox/ps3 you have a variety of content (Games)..

    So yeh.

    In my opinion i would also consider a ps3, especially if you decide to use/play online features/games.

    Xbox. I have one and I find the online gaming to be more challenging than that on the Ps3.

    I don't actually have a Playstation, but my mate does and everytime I go to his I am forced to play it...

    Post  Joey Sun Aug 28, 2011 7:37 am

    I believe the OPs question has been answered so I am going to go off topic for a bit (feel free to lock thread if this gets out of hand, it is certainly not my intention to make it that way).

    I am curious as to why some people seem to say some outlandish statements about consoles they don't own;
    for example "Sony lost the plot with the PS3" (not picking on you boosted6 just making a point).

    Neither the xbox, ps3 or hell even the wii are bad consoles in their own right. Constant comments stating that one is better than the other seem to all ignore the context and instead impose their own experiences on it. Especially in this thread where the OP has stated that all of his friends play on the xbox (and hell he even implied that he would rather just play it on PC). Given that why is it that the thread still has a mass of comments dissing out one console or another even where relevance is not needed.

    The reason that I find these statements so strange is that they seem to be said instead of "I don't like the ps3/xbox". Every time I hear someone say that another console sucks for X reason it feels less like they are trying to convince other people that it sucks and more like they are trying to justify to themselves that it is okay that they don't own one, especially when given the topic at hand it should have not been mentioned at all.

    /rant

    tl'dr: something is superior/better than something else ONLY when it outdoes ALL of the primary (and in some case secondary) features of something else.
    For example a nightfinder is not better than a maverick. A nightfinder is better than a maverick in range (and accuracy I believe) but it fails at rate of fire. Arguably though a hoppered nightfinder would be better than a maverick except for one could say that with the hopper it looses form factor and becomes a bit cumbersome. Without all of the features being bettered can you really say that given every context one is better than the other?

    Um..ok. When i said Sony lost the plot, what i meant was, when they had the PS2, they had the major market, especially with the games, but with the PS3, they went backwards, graphics let it down big time at the start.
    On paper they sounded fantastic, but didnt deliver like the XBOX did. This time XBOX has had the major game market, well technically Nitendo has...i think..? But this is about PS3 and XBOX.

    Like i mentioned in my last post, ihave played on PS3's, and wasnt impressed. I still own a PS2, i was going to buy a PS3 next...but i saw the difference between the two from the start, so i happily shifted. XBOX live is awesome, market place, and the online gaming is insane.

    But hey, each to their own in regards to what console is best.

    A fair opinion. Though I am a bit confused as to what you mean by "graphics let it down big time at the start". The graphics of the ps3 have always been on par or superior to any other console of its time. Unless you are referring to the lack of games when released letting it down, which indeed was a massive drawback, and honestly it hit them hard. I am not aware of any console having a major market over the other (out of xbox and ps3), at least when you take all the countries into consideration, then again I haven't seen any real numbers. A rumor actually propped up a while back stating that microsoft and sony were working together on a console, probably fake, but would be interesting if true.

    No i dont see them working together, but hey, you never know.

    Graphics on the early games were terrible. Games like Fifa, etc were not nice to look at.

    Now sure, the games are much better.

    Before I lock this thread...

    I own a NES, SNES, SMS2, PS1, PS2, PS3, XBOX, N64, GAMECUBE, GAMEBOY ADVANCE, DSi XL, Wii and an ALIENWARE M15X.

    At the end of the day, I probably use the Wii more than any other console, just for the fun factor. Second would have to be the Sega Master System 2 - gotta love Wonderboy!!

    If I want serious gaming, I'll use the Alienware.

    Each console has it's distinct pro's and con's - primarily dictated by what the user wants to get out of it personally.

    Once again, Joey's pretty much on the money IMO.

    Cheers,
