Microsoft started out with a crappy game console with excellent graphics, and insanely awesome online play. But in the past years it has been out, They have still not fixed ANY problems with the system. It still has the RROD (Red Rings of Death), and the disc reading error. I bought one just because I love to play online, But I have returned it 3 times for new systems because it has broke. While the online is the best out there, It still doesn't make up for all the problems. If you're looking for performance and reliability, go with the PlayStation 3. Otherwise, get a 360 and return it every few months. Besides the problems, the game selection is fantastic, the games are amazing, and the online is superior to any other system there is out there. I would suggest buying one used since they have a 30 day return policy that comes with it.
