Microsoft Xbox 360
Advantages: Good games, HD graphics
Disadvantages: Online play needs to be paid for, RROD, reliability
The Xbox 360 is an excellent console for the value you get for it. The graphics are HD, it has an excellent games library and all in all is a good all round package however it is not without its faults.
Firstly the Reliability of the console has still not been solved by microsoft. The fact that recent models still get the dreaded RROD (Red Rings Of Death) is ludicrous and this should have been solved a long time ago, Microsfot have however substitued this by giving every consumer a standard 3 year warranty but this still does not save all the hassle you have to go though sadly.
Secondly the future games line-up looks very bleak indeed with the only big game to be coming out being Gears Of War 3 and this is disappointing to hear.
Thirdly the fact that you have to pay £40 a year for the online is a bummer as well but the service you get is first class so I guess there are no complaints there.
The fact that you get a neat tidy package for the price of the console is a good deal but some major flaws are apparent in the console and you should research them before buying.
Summary: Good console
