I am sure this will spur as much debate as an iPhone/Android or Apple/PC discussion. But I am considering getting a new game console. I had an xbox years ago, that I ended up selling and I was a Wii owner for a little while and get disenchanted with that after some time and wanted something, well more grown up (that and I stopped playing it because it just got old).
I am going back and forth with wanting to get another one, as a way to kill time on nights when I just feel like blowing stuff up in a video game and what not. Or have friends over and have something to do during intermissions or half time(s). I am not a hard-core gamer by any means.
Since I got bored with the Wii, I have no desire to get the Kinect or Motion option bundles (although I know the Kinect looks like a whole lot more fun than the motion). Although the Kinect option does look cool because I don't have to hold a controller, or a microphone looking thing to use it. I am leaning towards the Xbox 360 because I loved the Halo franchise and know that a lot of the games go on both platforms. I already have a Blu-Ray player, so that isn't a necessity.
The only thing that scares me with the Xbox 360 is the dreaded red ring of death. I don't want to be forced into buying the warranty on it because at some random time for no apparent reason it's going to decide I want to blow up today and do that. (is that even an issue anymore?)
