So a week and a half ago I did it, I took the plunge, bought a nice new HD TV (32" samsung, *glee*) and bought a 360.
I never thought I would say this but, the 360 is freaking awesome. I even realize I like *gasp* halo 3. My first 4 games are dead rising, halo 3, gta IV and gears of war. All are fun in their own way and Xbox live just makes everything that much more awesome.
I wish Nintendo would have just copied microsoft in this regard.
The marketplace is really what is holding my interest though, Ikaruga on DC was one of my favorite games and I am so happy to be able to play it without having to hook up my broken down DC (well the system is fine but the controllers, not so much).
Pacman CE has me glued to my Xbox longer than any game on the Wii has and going through each game to unlock achievements is strangely addicting.
It's weird how I look forward to just coming home to beat a high score just to see myself move up on a ladderboard and so I could show off to my Live buddies . . . it makes me happy to enjoy gaming again.
All in all I couldn't be happier with my purchase and I hope to see some of you on Live one of these days
