I Don't Want to, but I Have To...

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

DAILY MANIFESTO

5 Years and 3 Red Lights Later

Posted on Tuesday, November 23 @ 18:47:22 Eastern by
The Xbox 360 turned 5 years old today, which immediately got me thinking back about my experience with Microsoft's second attempt at a video game console and how I fell victim to the dreaded Red Ring of Death.

I patiently waited to buy a 360 until Halo 3 released, at which point I decided to "Jump In". Hopping onto Xbox Live and playing with friends online worked about as well as playing Counter Strike with friends on a common server.

There were a lot of reasons to pick up a 360, but Halo 3 ended up not being one of them.

The 360 is responsible for many of the advances made during this console generation: online marketplaces, focus on multiplayer, first... person... shooters. So many first person shooters!

The first Xbox console only was available for 4 years until the 360 came out, so the 360 is already faring much better. But can it really stand the test of time and continue to flourish in such a competitive market? Is Kinect enough to keep things interesting for years to come?

Only time will tell. Until then, share your Xbox 360 stories in the comments.

My worst memory was losing my precious console to RROD. And yes... I did try the towel-trick. It didn't work. Luckily I was under the three-year warranty.
