The graphics on the 360 are far superior to the old machine. It plays DVDs out of the box also. Thats probably it in simplistic terms.

Old ones can be bought dirt cheap and easy to "mod" to play copies (if thats your thing!), whereas the 360 can also - but not without opening it up. Both would invalidate any warrenty, but easy to "un mod" the old machine.

Xbox 360 is white and has 4 green lights at the front. It is louder and is a bit like a heater for the winter. It has a power button on the front also. You can play music on it too and also plug a wireless controller in it. It's very good.

Worth considering that no new games are made for the Xbox 1 as it is discontinued - although the odd sports games seems to poop up every now and then.

But also it does actually have a very good back catalogue of games to keep you playing for years.

Catwomen, the difference is basically the graphics (Hi-def quality) on the xbox 360..

No it isn't, he said "if you wanted to", he isn't saying "just use illegal games", All he mentioned was backup copies.

Jez if your oversensitive rader was bleeping away at that, try the FS/FT section, tons of consoles have been sold recently with "back-up" games, Also try ebay to report a ton of listings there.

Guv mearly mentioned an option on both the consoles, they both have the capability of playing back-up games, doesn't mean you have to though.......

Thats a bit strong- he only answered my question-he didnt tell me to do that !
Thanks for the info everyone

And also remember Kids, don't record movies when they are shown on TV, because that breaches copyright! And I really hope that no-one is still taping songs off the radio......!

:whistling:

Yeah Yeah, I recorded The Ladies Bra Song, it beats paying 79p off of Itunes, becuase at less than 35 seconds long its works out at over 2p per second of music.

Thats just not a hot deal :lol:

If a car sales man says that a car can do 150 mile an hour - does that mean he's committed an offence?

Sorry..In the dark ages at my house. Dont have either so cannot comment. Graphics on PS2 certainly better than I remeber the arcade machines.:)

wasnt it 8gb?

twas 8gb - 10gb apprently

the only differnce is the graphical abilty of the systems.360 beeing better of course.and the fact that the 360 physically looks so much better

yes, the 360 is gonna be a great heater for christmas. Yes you can mod it but then when it brakes as it probably will- they probably wont fix it , so its always seemed a false economy to me. At least untill they build it right

As long as you register it then they will repair it should you get the red ring of death.

enough of the "probably" if you dont know facts then how about refraining from posting your views on misguided false economy.

i know they fix up to three years but ive heard if a seal is broken the warrantee is null and void and they wont fix it. As far as this is microsoft is concerned you may or may not get it fixed hence "probably". very few things in life come down to facts, more perspectives; thankyou

He was saying if the console is modded/hacked, Microsoft won't repair it, which is 100% right.......

Hmm. Well the Xbox is over five years old and the 360 is celebrating it's second birthday soon.

Depends if you just want a cheap old console to play occasionally or want an up to date machine. There are so many cheap games for the 360 these days that if you can afford the initial outlay for the machine you may as well get the 360.
