If you want to enjoy your game play on your 360 console, DO NOT CHIP.Most of the chipped consoles I've come across don't last very long.That's my view anyways.

Between the 360 and the PS3, i prefer the PS3.I started out with the old x box (caught the ring of death).I upgraded to the x box 360 Halo 3 edition console (caught the ring of death after 6 months).I'm now on the PS3 and i have to tell you, it beats the 360 hands down.The 360 has some cool games though (Gears of war 1&2, DOA4.Fifa and so on) but it comes no where close to a PS3.For those who have played MGS4,Assassins creed and God of war, you know what I'm talking about.

since you have decided to make a combination for halo.

here is the combination for gran turismo

Gran Turismo stand at 10.84 million units

Gran Turismo 2 sold slightly less at 9.34 million

Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec stands at 14.36 million

Turismo 4 â??Prologueâ? still managed to shift close to 1.5 million units (DEMO)

Gran Turismo 4 currently stands at 6.25 million worldwide

Gran Turismo 5 prolougue 4 million [(DEMO) and it's on par with the original version of FROZA for the 360}

50 million copies sold NOW!

TILL NOW IT IS THE HIGHEST SELLING GAME, GRAN THEFT NOR CALL OF DUTY could not surpass it.

cheers!

how could your possibly compare the highest selling xbox game (halo series) to a game on the PLAYSTATON.

you should have made comaprism against the highest selling PLAYSTATION game. (gran torismo series) GRAN TORISMO 5, should be game to make comparism with it, and it's currently not avialable.

   so how could you make a good gamming journalist?, when you cant even carry out a simple RESEARCH.?

  what a waste

also with a little research, it can be shown that the highest selling games on the various consoles are as follows

METAL GEAR SOLID 4 (4.5 million as of december 2008) PS3

HALO 3 (10.3 million as of march 2008) Xbox 360

Wii Sports 45.71 million (as of March, 2009) Wii and if that doesn't appease you, check Mario Kart Wii (15.4 million)

So to the guy (BILL) get your facts right

you guys start a new thread and diss each other but back to the post at hand.

Its simple if you intend playing online, dont chip

else feel free

by the way the argument on consoles is like the argument between mac-fans and pc-fans

PS: Gears of War 2 = 2 years in development

KillZone 2 and MGS 4 have been in development for 4 years. No points for guessing the one with the edge in graphics.

You like/prefer the Sony (PS3), we get it. This thread is titled "Is It Advisable To Get A Chipped (pirated)xbox 360?". I don't see Sony or PS3 in the title, so if you don't have any input, please beat it. Start a thread for Sony PS3 Worship and carry on there. Enough with the "PS3 is better than Xbox 360" already, Sheesh!

you are not the first DUMB! guy i meet in Nairaland.

you have no shame in you, what a wate of time.

xbox 360 has been maxed out period. the best looking game in 360 is Gears of war2

and that can't even stand close to MGS4, unchanted, inFAMOUS. let alone KILLZONE2. (the best graphics game ever) now what do we see,?  ps3 exclusives fighting ps3 exclusives in terms of GRAPHICS, PHYSICS, IQ, LIGHTING, GAMEPLAY and what have u.

the demo of gran torismo 5 (GTP) kills FROZA (xbox 360 driving game). and the full game is not even out.

i recall at E3 when tune 10 makers of FROZA were bragging that the games comes with 400 cars, 8 cars per race and everybody  were like  whoa, the next day came with polyphonic Digital, giving info about Gran torismo 5 (highest selling playstation franchise) that the game comes with;

800 cars

16 cars per race

remote play with psp

ability to use the psp as a rare mirror

damage control. etc

then we knew that it was game over.

what makes you think Rockstar (makers of GTA4) was making THE AGENT exclusively for PS3 how about Quantic Dreams making HEAVY RAIN for the ps3 only. then team ico making the last Guadian. ( that game that made the BBC reporter go krazy) more?

GOD OF WAR 3? dont even go there.

have a nice day!

Anyone know if the Xbox360 Arcade (the one without a hard drive) can be chipped too or if there is a way of copying movies and Music from an external Hard drive to the xbox360's Hard drive.

Sony will never tell you they were making A PS3 slim, otherwise the sales will plunge dramatically, everyone would be waiting for the cheaper and slimmer ps3. i want to tell u that a AGAIN that A PS3 slim would be showed at the TOKYO GAME SHOW this september.

  as for the 800cd on xbox, i dont care, you would only play games, when a patch is released you cant apply it, you cant go online with it,  and stuff like that.

 

WORLD SLIMMEST TELVISION.

7 month ago sony was making a loss of $50 per console Sony no longer make losses on each console sold .

with the new 45nm chip, a ps3slim would likely come this fall. by then the price would come down to $299 and Sony would once again dorminate the indusrty, remember when sony said they wanted some share of the casual market? sony motion controller (wand) with voice recongnition and force feedback would be out next year spring and would futher boost sales of the ps3 one interesting thing is that it would be forward and backward compatible,  as the 360, Ea and other major publishers have already said they have had it maxed out. xbox 360 natal is just a wasted dream!

just check out ps3 exclusive line up due this fiscal year~!

Gran torismo 5

God of war 3   

unchanted 2   

Heavy rain

the last guadian

the agent 

fat princess

white knight chronicles.  North america and europe release

final fatansy 14

etc,

this shows and futher clarify my claims that the wii is just a gimmick, hardcore gamers go for the ps3, just the price that the problem, 360 is the cheapest console yet ps3 has sold faster than it year over year, except that it had a year head start over it's competition.

I completely agree with this statement. The Nintendo wii is completely[b]useless[/b]. If you want a real game console, buy a PS3. Playing games online on the PS3 is free but on xbox 360 you have to buy a subscription plan for 1 or more years!

it is not advisabe to get even the original xbox360.

it is a complete waste of time.

Research has shown that boys (15-18) go for the xbox

while mature men (19-37) go for the Ps3 and babies, old women, paralysed people, mentally impaired people go for the wii.

so the choice is yours!

Noting wrong with grown up men playing games. However what sucks is when grown up men want to act as big boys, but don't have money to buy Original copies and have to result to pirating the work and sweat of others.

If you are worried about "Ring of death" and you opt to get a pirated xbox, you will get found out if you return it for repairs. Also using pirated Xbox may lead to your account getting blocked from xbox live.
