    The blue dragon days were the days you were at the peak of your single format fanboy psychosis. You went out your way to diss the 360 back then. That makes you equal tard.

    You've only just got a gaming PC 2 days ago whilst everyone else has been PC gaming since the 90s and now you're trying to act like a PC elitist...good luck playing Forza Horizon and Halo 4 on your new rig.
    I certainly was a fanboy tard.
    However, as soon as I stopped being a tard and got a 360 there were quite a few exclusives such as the 2 I mentioned above to get.
    There's very little of interest nowadays since MS started concentrating on Kinect that isn't on the PS3 or PC.
    The 360 is a great console but it's undeniable that it's at it's "most shit" nowadays compared to when MS were moneyhatting exclusives everywhere and actually producing non casual stuff.
    There's the odd thing such as Forza and Halol but I'm not really interested in them personally.

    I'm hardly a PC elitist. I am, however hugely impressed with the results of my PC and very happy that I have it instead of a PC. That wouldn't have been the case a few years ago.

    It's a shame you couldn't afford to keep both. I'm having a lovely time with Dragon's Dogma this week.

    I could afford it, it was just pointless.
    I can get DD on the PS3, the difference in 3rd partygames between it and the 360 are negligible these days...

    And here I was thinking the PS3 still has a shit time with multi-format games. I bought a PS3 a couple of months ago, but only for the exclusives.

    Just got around to installing the new version of the dash.

    Ugly as sin with a fuckload more ads and stuff hidden in even more menus than previously.

    At least the on screen keyboard for text entry is QWERTY now instead of being alphabethical like it was since launch.

    Hilarious.

    I only turned the fucking thing on and resubbed to Gold for Netflix and the performance of the app has gotten worse to the point of being almost unusable.

    Bravo MS.

    You could always use QWERTY, just had to change it in the settings.

    I was using Netflix earlier and it was fine. Quit your filthy whining.

    Yah. That and the adpocalypse on every single screen even though you're paying for Live is very annoying.

    It's the way forward. You'll have to sign up to Gold before you can even turn on their next console.

    Honestly I haven't turned on the ol' Adbox in months but check out this thread from time to time in morbid fascination at what the 360 is turning into.

    Maybe it's just me, but my Xbox 360 takes a good forty or fifty seconds to actually sign in and bring the dashboard up ... is this a problem for anyone else?

    Used to be fairly instant once upon a time!

    Mines always taken a while from what I remember. It's still my trusty original though, so I'll cut the old girl some slack.

    I generally find that my life simply isn't important enough to get worried about an extra 30 seconds when turning on a console.

    You could have eradicated world hunger in that 30 seconds, you monster.

    I'd probably just have eaten a few more Pringles to be honest, so I'm actually worsening world hunger! Shit, I see the problem now.

    For games, videos, music and apps.

    How is this any different to any other digital store?

    You're paying for it, and they're not just in the store, they're everywhere.

    It's fine that it doesn't bother you, but is it really toomuch to understand that might bother others?

    I can accept it annoys people cos they pay for Live: but whereas ads normally piss me off, the dash is largely background static for me.
