I've owned the Xbox 360 for 15 months now, so it's time for a review. This was my first Xbox, ever. I'd been all Sony before, including zoning a PS3. The decision to get an Xbox wasn't easy, but it happened nonetheless. The platform is ageing, however, with constant updates Microsoft is seemingly keeping it alive for a while longer, something which is much appreciated by me. It's reassuring to know that Microsoft are will keep be supporting its users of an ageing platform, well I guess we do pay them well. That beings me on to my next point. Xbox Live. I'm trying not to rant here, but I just can't figure out why Xbox Live Gold is a paid membership. True, it was one of the reasons I bought an Xbox, but it still doesn't seem to make any sense to me. But you can't really complain, it's not like Microsoft told me it was gonna be free before I bought an Xbox or anything. Being an "Apple fanboy" you'd expect my to give the Xbox a very low score and write a review bashing the system. This isn't the case. Apple have arguably not yet met gamers needs so Sony and Microsoft are still very much needed in this area. It's with pleasure I say that I very much enjoy using my Xbox (And PS3)adding that the console fills a part of my life Apple are yet to satisfy. As with my PS3 review I'll say that 7.0 is accurate for the Xbox 360 S.
