View Full Version : X Box 360 or Used gun?

04-18-2007, 05:10 PM
So, the other day I got paid for reffing 27 hockey games last month. I was thinking about getting a X Box 360 Elite, X Box Live, and Gears of War, but then I was on a friends myspace and watched the paintball video he had on it and it made me really want to get back into the sport. I need you guys opinions about this.

Edit- Also I can drive in 2 months so I will be able to get to the field w/o having to have my parents drive me.

you could buy my xbox 360 premium for 360 bucks... and i could sell you gears of war collectors edition with all this cool stuff hardly anyone else has.

i'll price lower if you are interested.

I say, "Get outside and throw down some paint!!!"

Well this is basically what you're asking.

1. Stay inside for hours on end and sit on your ass
2. Have fun and play paintball.


I'd go with #2.

Help- I'll let you know.
VW- I know especially with the weather breaking here, it's giving me that itch to play.

Outside and play buddy....

Plus this is a PB forum so our answers are skewed.

I voted paintball... But honestly... it's up to you. What do you see yourself doing? What do you see yourself doing more then the other? One is exercise, the other is an excuse to gain weight and become unhealthy.

Or to look at it another way, one lets you relax at home, spend time alone (wich everyone needs every once in a while), not have to spend more money every time you play, the other you deal with some bad attitudes at times, have a high possibility of being overshot/bunkered, and spending more money on upgrading once you get the gun (I know I do that anyway... I can't stand anything stock), having to pay more $$$ for paint, air and entry. Both have downsides, but both are fun. It's where you want to invest your monies.

Being a gamer and a paintballer... I could honestly say that I can go either way. But... Why not just try one. If you get out of either of them, just sell the item and get into the other one.

Enjoy life and the great outdoors, would you rather feel good about jacking somebody up in a video game or in person...I prefer the latter.

hmmm... sit on the couch getting fatter, or get outside and have a REAL adrenaline rush. Sounds like a no-brainer!

Buy the elite and trade me harddrives:p

but seriously i would say pb gear hands down, get a 360 for the winter.

I think it depends on with you like more or what you want to do more...Gaming or playing Paintball...

btw, you don't need an elite unless you are a complete media hoarder, or you have a pretty HDTV w/ HDMI. I've never gotten close to filling my 20gb hdd, i just need to get an elite because it has HDMI and my projector in the basement only takes that, or video in, so i can't get a good HD picture w/o it.

I think I'm going to get a gun. Now I just have to convince my parents into letting me get back into the sport.
