Is the Xbox 360 just a remodel of a PC with a different Contorller?

Post by Permafry_42 on Thu Sep 10, 2009 5:22 pm

I know that many people say the the Wii is a cheap PS2 dressed up like a mac, but could you say the same thing about the Xbox 360? After all, a majority of it's AAA games were originally made for PC, but were then ported to the 360 (Half-Life 2, Mirrors Edge, Mass Effect, etc.) So does that mean that 360 is just a PC with a different controller?

I've added a Poll, so please vote.

I'd say yes, except that PCs don't tend to kill themselves...

Well it does use Windows XP, I believe the PS3 uses something based around Linux and I heard rumors that the Wii used Linux too.

The PS3 is way more like a PC than the 360. Hell the ps3 is a computer.

If you guys say you think it is a remodel at least say why, and saying it has common games on the PC isn't really that supportive...

360 is a PC because it uses Windows XP.
