    X360 question

    I truly cannot stand the way this console looks and sounds, or the way everything comes at a considerable price (bigger HD, wireless not as standard, batteries for the pads etc etc.)... buuuut, I'm thinking of getting one because I really want to play Ninja Gaiden 2 and a few other decent games. They're getting cheap now too it seems.

    So, wondered, can I use an external instead of buying the Elite with the bigger HD to save my games, profiles and all that other important stuff? Or will I have to get MS's HD if I want the space?

    Thanks

    Cheers for that link, would be great if you can use your own non-MS specific HD (even if you have to tediously "hack" something to get it to work), but this is the first I've heard of this?

    Anyone done it?

    or just get a ps3 and play the games and there look even better, and on a console that looks great

    I love my 360 but have you played NG2 yet? I thought it looked great but played like a giant pile of button bashing poo.

    To be fair I didn't give it much chance though.

    Silly fanboy

    The ps3 would be nice but its too massive, the same design and a smaller size and it would be fine.

    And saying games look better with no proof.

    Exactly games look near enough the same on both,however most games companys made the games on the 360 then ported it over to the PS3, but it looks like it go the other way round now

    Ryouga you forgot to say the PS3 would be good if it had more then 3 good exclusive games

    Fanboy comments are irrelevant. He wants to specifically play Ninja Gaiden 2 (god knows why).

    Would you not be better getting an arcade? If you only plan to play a few games then it's unnecessary to have a hard drive?

    Yea why is it so bloody big???
    I have one but think its way to big and such a stupid shape, surely they could have come up with something better looking than that.
    Mind you look at the mess they made of the first PS2, exterior design is not their strong point....

    This is the only right/logical answer - it isnt rocket science, just get a PS3 instead. Im pretty sure Ninja Gaiden 2 will be out on PS3 anyway.

    Christ, what have I missed here! I'm going to ignore the lot as I'm too tired to read, but we all know that it goes without saying that the PS3 rules. I already have one! :-D
