Advantages: Graphical quality, ease of use
Disadvantages: Cost of games
After spending hours dredging through the net in an attempt to upgrade my computer for what felt like the billionth time to get MW2 to run reasonanbly well, I finally decided to give up on the computer, and switch to an Xbox 360. Best decision ever.
Basically, I was afraid of a lack of community spirit I heard about consoles, and, of course, the dreaded red ring. I got my xbox about a year ago, and, despite it being the old version, fortunatley have not yet experinced this problem. I have also not experinced the loss of community I expected - Xbox Live is, if anything, better than the online PC gaming community.
However, the best (and least expected) change was the quality. Far off dreams off graphics and speed were now a reality; especially when linked with a HD TV. It did take time to adjust to a controller (something I hadn't been near since an N64), but once this was done, the machine exceeded my expectations.
Games are slightly more pricey, but the PC is now consigned to essays and facebook, and there it shall remain.
Summary: Great console, would recommend to anyone
