Which Sucks Less: Xbox 360 Elite vs. Xbox 360 Arcade

This week, the team debuts its new feature, Which Sucks Less, designed to help you decide what console to get for your loved ones this holiday season.

Additionally, the team discusses maturity in video games, the Wii 4.2 system update and a couple recent releases. (And Boter, being sick, got lazy in the editing room and didn't trim as much as he said he would.)

Keep up to date on the Which Sucks Less 2009 brackets:
Which Sucks Less 2009: Home Consoles
Which Sucks Less 2009: Handhelds

I still stand by that if you buy a used HDD and headset, the Arcade's the better deal, $50 rebate notwithstanding.

Well, 2 out of 3 said Elite. Also, there's something to be said for getting everything all in one box.

1) Woo!!! excellent feature / column . Although i currently do not have a plan for buying an XBox 360;

2) sorry if i got you sick, boter.

3) thanks for the warning FearTheClaw; i won't download the update until i see something telling me it's safe.

4) check out this Video on Ironman vs. Batman

5) to answer FearTheClaw's and Sticky's question(s):

I'm from Long Island. I attended SUNYIT from August 2007 to May 2008; and then again from August 2008 to August 2009. I am currently taking only classes and waiting for feedback on my thesis for my master's degree.

During my time on campus, i became a devoted member of SUNY TECH GAMER'S CLUB and additionally friends with boter.

Last June, Boter put up thread for this podcast and i decided to take a list for your guys E3 coverage [Being i had other things to take care of, you guys helped condense E3 for me].

I liked it so much, that i went back and listened to the first episode and subscribed on my Google reader. When you guys went to iTunes, i subscribed there as well.

During subsequent episodes, Fear joined in the discussions, and in one of those discussions (although i forget which) he does a plug for his blog.

I went over and checked out the blog. I liked many of the posts, but this one really caught my eye. It's then i subscribe to the blog.

And now you know. GI Joe!

Actually I think the best example of what you can compare games to is cartoons and comics. When they started out they were all exclusive, adults to kids. At some point those forms of media were labeled just for kids. Nowadays look at what has happened to those forms of media. Slowly but surely they are regaining mass appeal. Comics have become adult as well since the late 90's and adult swim is still going strong.

Still sex is so taboo in American media period. Damned christians.

BTW... I updated my wii to no issue.
