Yes boys and girls, I have committed myself to the world of consoles. I have chosen sides and am prepared to defend my position. I talked big about and was totally excited for the Wii. I had a chance to play over Christmas and was thoroughly impressed with how anyone and I mean anyone can pick it up and have a blast with it.
But for me, I chose a console based on one game and one game only. That game is ..... (ta-da!) GEARS OF WAR! Yes, I used to go over to my brother-in-law or friend's place where I was introduced to the most intriguing FPS ever made. If you ever liked CS or Half-Life, then you will LOVE Gears. So I went down to CostCo, dropped $449 and got the sweet XBOX 360 package and GoW. I have had it for a couple of weeks and have already logged countless hours of dropping fools from all over the world. I haven't even touched the Campaign mode 'cos the online team play is where it's at. XBOX live definitely lives up to the hype and the game will blow you away. Soooo much better than Halo 2. Much more difficult, and very difficult to learn to be good at, which is part of the fun.
Anyway, I'm a fan of GoW, and the 360 delivers that game, so that's where I'm at. Questions? Comments?
