I'm afraid I see only one reason for buying an XBox 360. To flog it
on eBay for around £1,000 That's what they are starting to go up to
on there with the stupid rush to Xmas. Idiot parents with too much
money and whinging little brat demanding the latest electronic toy.
They deserve to be parted with their money.
Sorry guys and girls I am not a gamer...can't you tell :-)
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
