After much soul searching (and consultation with my better half) I decided to pick one up for NZ$60.94 (incl shipping and GST).
Why you may ask? That’s a good question.
Freedom. Freedom from the keyboard. I look forward to playing racing games with my feet up on the desk, making the most of my surround sound. There’s also the option of taking the computer into the lounge, plugging it into the tv, and giving that a go.
In short, I wanted an xbox, but pretty much had one at home, I just need to use it like one. I’ll keep you posted.
