    Default Is buying xbox 360 better than upgrading pc in overall consideration?

    I am not a hardcore gamer but I play games everyday.My pc is almost outdated for current games requirements.E5200 2.5ghz processor,2gb ram,18.5" monitor and a 9800GT geforce card from XFX which blew out right after a few days after 1 year.

    I like to play games from some distance now.So I see I will need a big monitor.But monitors which are 23" or 24" costs like 20000-30000 tk.And over that I will need a graphics card and might need to upgrade the processor too.More costs.

    So,I am thinking I can get a xbox 360 for under 20000 right.That's the price I last heard not so sure though,correct me if I am wrong.And I have a 32" tv which can be connected to xbox 360's port.It will be cost effective.

    But now here's another problem.Does xbox 360 found in the local markets live long?I mean what if it gets broken after 1 or 2 years,it will be a total loss.Moreover the games will become useless. Tell me about expereince with xbox 360s bought from Bangladeshs' markets.

    Also suggest me which will be right,pc upgrade or xbox 360.

    If you can wait then X720 will be ur best choice.But if are in a hurry go for X360 as you'll need a big amount of money to upgrade your whole pc to play today's and upcoming hot titles.

    If you want to play the latest games in cheapest possible way, xbox 360 is your choice. But if I were you I would wait and gather some more money and invest on upgrading PC.

    - - - Updated - - -

    But as far I know, modding the xbox is not the last thing you need to do, you may also need to update firmware every 6 months or a year. Xbox user's can tell you better..

    buy a 250gb slim from abroad if possible and mod it here, the ones they sell here are probably refurbished and have plenty of problems like weak lens.

    go for a x360. u will find one in clickbd at around 20000. and if u go for new then theres no old phat 360 elites around ~30k. slims starts from 35k-40k n custom consoles are 50k. and I will say dont wait for the xbox 720. the time it will be hackable will be 2014 q1 or q2 or even later. and moreover it wont be that cheap as you think... n after coming in BD it will be like almost double the price. so you see its not worth the wait actually. and about x360. if u enjoy sitting on ur couch or bed n relax n play then no doubt u will like a 360 or ps3. connect it to ur pc n forget everything else. play hassle free for 1/2years to come. n dont worry about firmware n weak lens stuff. firmware updating takes 1500tk at max and if lens is weak then clean it from a shop. but if u buy it new then u wont have any prob with lens atleast 2/3 years. n after that u can clean it from a shop which will cost u 500tk at max and then u r again good to go for 3/4months atleast. then again u can also change the lens by 3500tk... n now a days jasper motherboards doesnt show RROD. so u r good to go with a x360 or ps3. and if want to spend money only for gaming then console is better. if u ve other stuffs to do than gaming then go for pc. man u wont understand how those exclusives are..... RDR, Uncharted, Halo, Heavy Rain, Gears, journey etc.... really egula na khelle bujhbana why are these games exclusives n are console seller....

    - - - Updated - - -

    oh n akhon kar x360 ta usually akdom noshto hoina. everything can be repaired now in BD. usually new console e 3years eo kisu hobena if u take good care of it. like goromr time e ups lagay dile good to go. well eta amar experience theke bollam. have used 3 consoles so far and none of them showed any prob. (sold 3 of them for urgent needs) hope i helped u deciding.

    - - - Updated - - -

    oh n u can also play multiplayer with the pirated copy but ofc carefully.

    I like to play games from some distance now.So I see I will need a big monitor.But monitors which are 23" or 24" costs like 20000-30000 tk.And over that I will need a graphics card and might need to upgrade the processor too.More costs.

    So,I am thinking I can get a xbox 360 for under 20000 right.That's the price I last heard not so sure though,correct me if I am wrong.And I have a 32" tv which can be connected to xbox 360's port.It will be cost effective.

    But now here's another problem.Does xbox 360 found in the local markets live long?I mean what if it gets broken after 1 or 2 years,it will be a total loss.Moreover the games will become useless. Tell me about expereince with xbox 360s bought from Bangladeshs' markets.

    Also suggest me which will be right,pc upgrade or xbox 360.
    XBox 360 এর ডিভিডির দাম পিসির ডিভিডি থেকে বেশী। আপনার টিভি যদি Full HD না হয় তবে পিসি অধিকতর ভাল। বেশির ভাগ ৩২" LCD টিভির Native রেজোলিউশান ১৩৬৬*৭৬৮ এবং পিসির HDMI থেকে টিভির HDMI এ input করতে পারেন । আপনি AMD HD 7750 বা 7770 বা NVidia GTX 650 বা 640 এর সাথে i3 2120 বা i3 3220 দ্বারা পিসি তৈরি করলে ১৩৬৬*৭৬৮ এ খুব ভাল fps পাবেন এবং warranty 2-3 years পাবেন। আমি মনে করি আপনি 1080p এবং 1080i এর তফাত জানেন এ জন্য এই প্রসঙ্গ বাদ দিলাম। 1.Navid(my friend) XBox 360(now) & PS2(previous) সম্পর্কে বলে "গেমের DVD তে দাগ পড়লে মনে হয় দিলে দাগ পড়ল"(seriously bad but also funny)। 2. Shooting Game Controller এ খেলা PC user দের জন্য কঠিন। 3.এই PC এর খরচ 43,000 টাকা এর নিচে পড়বে। 4. Pen-Drive আছে না (friend থাকলে কি আর গেম এর অভাব হয়,just copy past)। তো আপনিই সিধান্ত নিন।

    buy a used xbox 360 and you can play it for 2 years at most. No point in buying a brand new console right now.

    ok first of all jasper e rrod daoa quite impossible. I asked several technicians n they said its very very rare. r jodi hoy o dn yes there is a fix but it may occur again after 3/4months or so. if u r lucky it may not occur for at least 8-10 months. well we are talking about rrod which is quite impossible to occur in current consoles with jasper motherboards. current up down korle it may give u red rings that moment but restarting ur console will make it good to go. but again bower brick o noshto hoite pare updown er karone. so better if u buy a cheap ups just for the sake of 2mins back up.

    and 2ndly, yes if you jtag your console (another type of mod) you can download and copy and play any games including DLC's but if you jtag, you wont be able to play online multiplayer. only single player and enjoy LAN or split screen with frnds.

    if you do LT 3.0 (mod) u will be able to play every Multiplayer out there and you can also download and burn dvds for yourself and play. Lt 3.0 is recommended if u wana play MP. orelse get jtagged. and oh x360 games costs 160-180tk in market. and you see these days games in PC are not less than 3-4 dvds which costs u 200tk. and about getting scratch on disk. well if you dont dance on it then u r good to go. haha. well now its up to you. if I were to choose I would keep my current pc and go for a console if I want to game n watch movies only.

    I would say dont miss the exclusives if u r looking to game only.... trust me. people who went from PC to console gaming understood what those exclusives are. between u can sell of x360 n buy a ps3 later to play all the exclusives. overall it will save you money only if u intend to play games only. better keep the current pc also....

    even I was a PC upgrade freak 3/4 years back... later I realised. lol. im not saying PC isnt good for gaming (ofc it is but consoles are meant for gaming) but im saying who needs to worry much when u can just insert disc n play some awesome titles n also the exclusives.

    need to know your budget.

    if(budget 30k and want good graphics)
    {
    then buy xbox360 and crack it //because pc with 30k budget wont have expensive gpu and thus cant provide good grafix
    }


    if(budget 30k and dont want moderate grafix)
    { buy a pc }

    if(budget 40k and want good graphics)
    { buy a pc with good grafix card!!! problem solved }



    Note: next gen xbox coming 2013 End or 2014 early. after then developers wont make xbox360 games.

Wat will happen to hd 5570's then or later?? 360's supports atleast aaa titles... Not like ps2... It all comes down to wat the next gen games b like...

    ok here is the thing. 40k budget pc games will give you more eye candy than a console? think again. look at titles like Ucharted 3, Journey, Halo 4, Heavy Rain, oh and ofcourse Red Dead Redemption. I bet you wont find a game running on a 30k pc that is looking more good than their console counterpart. uncharted 3 is probably one of the best looking game on ps3 n if it ever comes in pc, a good config pc will only able to match the ps3.... and console graphics aren't moderate.... i really wonder how devs pulls out such graphics with an 5-6yrs old machine with limited hardware. :S

    yes games will still come out on 360 even the next gen arrives....
    Note: He has a hd tv as a monitor...
    without monitor... i think he can buy a moderate gaming pc with ~40k.
    Note2: I suggested console if he is not grafix enthusiastic at 30k budget.

    about console only games.. like RDR or metal gear... no he cant play those in pc. and yes games will come to 360 also even after couple of months of 720 release.

    But as he asked overall, I believe he is from middle class family and he cant afford to spend much money again to buy 720 again. most probably he wants to spend only once. thats why i suggest pc . (Let alone lens problem after massive using of 6months or 1 year)
