TBH ive got an Xbox 360, and it hasnt even been plugged in for 8 months, im always either working on the cars or the bikes or out and about on my adventures.

i remember when PS2 games were £20-£30 when they came out and i used to wait until the price dropped because that was waaay too much (bearing in mind i had only pocket money to buy them with).

when COD came out and people were queuing overnight to be the first to get it, then spending £50 on a game and all the associated tat that comes with it (wifi controllers, online membership e.t.c) i lost all interest in gaming, i may occasionally buy a game for my phone for 89p but the way i see it i can spend the same money i would to buy a game on some DT50 wheel bearings and spend a couple of evenings rebuilding wheels.

much the same reason i haven't built my own gaming PC, ive got an old toshiba laptop that i bought in a clearance sale about 4 years ago and the spec is actually as good as most mid-range laptops today, it wont run anything massively demanding but GTA vice city, minecraft, Spyro, H.A.W.X and games of that ilk it handles just fine, i even run a Playstation emulator through it, and thats enough to keep me occupied

As long as its quick enough for streaming porn hub eh?

Well I've given up with it all now and I'm taking the pissing thing to the pawn shop next weekend. I would do it today buy the Xbox support line is closed so I can't cancel the online bit or shut down my account.

Something like yours would be nice but its just too much money.

Looking at 500 for that kind of spec with even basic components.

£320, actually and that includes some of the fancier mods I've done, as well.

You have to buy smart and not just go for a one-stop-shop deal, though. ;)

Thats it, i rang up Xbox last night and told them to cancel my account, then they started asking me aloud of questions about why i wanted to cancel etc etc and i don't thenk the pro Xbox man i was speaking to took too kindly to me saying that the Xbox had taken a nose dive in the last few years with its corrupt management with it trying to suck every penny out of its customers and that i was going to go back to the Playstation 2 which in my eyes was the best console i ever had bar the SAGA Megadrive a console that involves blowing and then smashing the game into it to get the damn thing to work is what i call child proof.

Guess i should have said a bit more in my rant really.

Yes you do earn money as you play but thats only small amounts of money if you don't play the missions with your mates (i have no friends on Xbox) so never earn good money to get any of the good stuff as such. its only on this Grand theft auto 5 tho that this happens on that ive seen so far.

So in order to get some of the "good stuff" i paid £40 to get £3.5m of in game money, which in a matter of one night after playing the game for 30mins i had found that Rockstar (the games makers) had removed all of my in game money for no reason at all which is the reason for my rant. Not only have they had £5.99 pm to go on line plus £40 for the game and an extra £40 for that money.

Again im not into gaming / computers or mobile phone to the extent that i can figure out how to get past a login screen but when these gaming firms take money from you after you pay them thats when it pisses me off.

Either way i had enough of it so its gone and i feel free :)

I agree but fresh boxers off the radiator in the winter is the best feeling in the world.
