    That was intensely sh*tty. They built up a 2-minute long plot with no ending punchline, no joke whatsoever. This is truly a pile of dogcrap.

    A lot of People. It`s cheaper and it`s a better system. It handles a hell of a lot better when a lot of people are online, and it also doesn`t weigh a ton. Not to mention the 360 isn`t a toe murderer either -.-

    For those who want to bash an xbox 360 and call it a lesser machine please go look up the hardware for all 3 current systems because the ps3 has a fraction of the power the xbox has the xbox 360 is literally the most powerful gaming console on the market despite popular believe that the all might ps3 is so damned special.

    The Wii is fun for all of like 5 minutes till you figure out the controls are comparable to that of the old nes power glove.

    Bottom line though is that the ps3 is an over priced system with no unique features other than a useless blueray player that no one really needs or wants in the system. Just a way to soak us for more cash.

    "Who buys an xbox anyway"

    Many people buy an xbox360 because it`s a good gaming machine. Massive software support, adequate power, relatively cheap. If I didn`t have a PC...I`d buy a PS3 so I could mod it with a bigger HDD (they take standard PC 2.5" drives), install Linux on it, get a mouse and keyboard and dual-boot with the game OS so I could do both. But I can understand why someone would buy an xbox360.

    and why do people always have to fight over what console is better? you fanboys just need to understand that everyone has their own opinion and that their opinion doesn`t effect you at all.

    That`s why I like the Wii. If your batteries die, the system will pause, and tell you to reconnect. The downside is you have to buy the rechargeables. But when you`re not using them, you set them on a stand.

    Yes, moron, that`s nice. Too bad he was playing CoD4 Online, and that stopping play for everyone would be an absolutely asinine idea. This guy should simply buy the rechargeable battery pack and plug the controller in when it starts to blink, hours before it actually dies.

    I think we can all agree that steve41high MOST LIKELY looks like the guy from the video, and is a shining example of maturity considering he`s an 18-year-old speaking in such a manner to a 16-year-old.
    _______________

    On topic, this has yet to happen to me, actually, and I use normal batteries... I`m planning on getting a charge kit sometime soon, though, so I`ll likely never have to deal with this.

    I can only imagine the horror, though...
