    Disappointed

    Posted

    I guess I'll have to buck the trend. A little background first. I bought this for my son to replace the Wii. I used to play video games as a kid back in the day when Atari 2600 with Space Invaders was the best thing out there, so this ain't my first rodeo. I'll skip all the typical stuff like it has great graphics which it does but thats all already been said. If you are considering this system then the only other thing you are comparing it to should be the PS3 which I don't have any experience with but really wish I had looked at closer. O.K. so here are all the problems you should know about before you buy this system. 1. 4GB is almost worthless, they shouldn't even sell this model because you can't play any games with high def content cause they don't have a enough space on the hard drive!!!!!! 2. The cool little on and off buttons seem cool at first touch but since they are so sensitive almost any time you get near them to move the console the system turns off or the disc door opens!! 3. HOT HOT HOT. The thing runs so hot my son said this will be an awesome hand warmer, enough said. 4. Fragile. We started taking the Wii with us on long trips to play in our van, it worked great. The Xbox not so much. If you go over a reasonably large bump in the road the disc jumps out of the disc tray and can't be read. And thats not the worst part. When the disc jumps out of the tray the system keeps running and grinds the disc againist something and cuts a groove in the disc so it can't be read. AWESOME!! Say bye bye to that $59.99 NCAA 2012 game!! 5. And the Kinect...REALLY. It is pretty lame. There is a little fun factor for the kids. Mostly for my 6 year old but thats about it. The thing is laggy and unresponsive. We tried it with Cabela's Big Game Hunting Party 2012 and it is un-playable it is so lame and laggy.

    a system for gaming..unless you're willing to pay

    Anonymous

    I bought this system for my kids 8, 7 and 5 years old, thinking the kinect would be a fun option to blow off some steam in the winter months. it's a lot harder to manuver and set up each game than I expected. I have to pretty much sit downstairs, get it ready, then move out of the way and let them take over. the spoken feature (eg. Xbox..PLAY GAME) RARELY works or understands what I'm saying. plain loud clear english. I ALSO wasn't aware you have to PAY microsoft to access the internet you already pay for for your home.. so say you want to access netflix.. you're paying for home internet, paying for netflix, and paying your xbox to access your netflix acct.. worst idea ever.. my ps3 and wii don't make me do that. not really happy overall with the system. I wouldn't pay the 300 for it again. my kids have no problem with wii, their DS's and some ps3 games, but this is proving tougher than expected

    Is this a good buy?

    Posted
    BestBuyBuddy

    Well in my opinion this wouldn't be a good buy for your money for many reasons. 1. Why would you buy an xbox that doesn't have a controller? 2. Why would you buy an xbox with only 4gb of memory? 3. Whats the purpose of the new xbox besides the wifi feature? Well, I believe that buyers who tend to buy a new xbox should look outside the box and buy something worth spending there money on. For example, i would buy an xbox with a big hard drive like the 250 gb hard drive so you can download what you like such as movies, games, and other content that is featured on the marketplace. Also buying the 250gb comes with a controller so you don't need to buy an extra one. Lastly, kinect works good and is similar to the wii, but probably won't be as perfect as the wii and won't have the wide variety of games like the wii does.

    Not as good

    The Kinect is not as good as advertised. It's a good peripheral for the xbox 360 don't get me wrong, but the way they make it look on tv in the commercials is very misleading. The Kinect is really not made for people taller than 6 feet, and I'm 6'5". It doesn't register your movements on the games like it should thereby giving you bad scores for uncompleted movements in games. Some games you can't even advance unless these moves have been performed properly. They recommend a minimum of 6 ft between you and the connect and I have mine at 8 ft, and it still doesn't work properly. Once again, it's good, just not as good as advertised.

    I did regret buying this

    The only good thing is the kinect, buy this if you really want it. keep in mind that You need to sign up for XBOX Live if you want to use the online features for games, netflix and listen radio stations, that's $50 per year, the xbox can no play blue ray movies, and I need xbox live to play netflix streaming movies which is really disappointed. If I could I would return this XBOX and get a playstation which can play blue ray, netflix and don't need to pay anything else additional.

    Great gaming system; kinect sensor having issues

    Posted

    I got the xbox with kinect for the family at Christmas. We played it for about 7 days then got an error message "C00000C2". I looked it up and learned I might need to update the console. I linked it to my wireless internet did 2 updates and it didn't fix it. I've talked to tech support and was told that I might have to send in the kinect sensor for repair. We have been able to use the system without the kinect. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

    Waste of money

    Have you ever bought a video game you really wanted? When you bought that video game and you played it for a while and then got sick of it? Well, it's the same with the kinect. You shouldn't buy the kinect cause of these reasons 1) it's a waste of money 2) it gets boring 3) it has suckish games 4) they kinda copied wii a litte So don't buy this and get xbox! if you have xbox than get wii or the 3ds!

    Not quite sure hard-core gamers will like this.

    WordHeard

    I am a hard-core gamer and I returned this item. The response is still noticeably laggy and I got real frustrated playing because the respnose time was real bad. I returned it and will probably not buy it at all unless a major overhaul is done to make response time perfect.

    Anonymous

    The dvd or cd, whatever we term it,doesn't work for the Kinect and I would like to know if I can get a replacement for it. I didn't want to be a pest as sometimes consumers with complaints are treated in that manner. and why couldn't you send two controls? I don't play selfishly!

    I bought this to become more attuned to the gaming sector - was concerned that buying the new X-Box that was about to come out would provide greater challenges with fewer game options ready to purchase immediately.

    FAIRLY GOOD DEAL

    FAIRLY GOOD DEAL. SAD PART IS, IF YOU WANNA WATCH NETFLIX THROUGH IT YOU HAVE TO PAY EXTRA. 60.00 A YEAR SIGN UP. NOT SO WITH Wii OR WITH SOME OTHER GAME BOXES. IF I HAD KNOWN THAT, I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT IT.

    Needs better games

    Not bad, but needs more and better games, especially for the Kinect. This will crash and burn if they can't produce Kinect games.
