Ok so if you've seen my planning to purchase an Xbox 360 thread in the console section then this is kinda like the continuation portion. So moving on, I'm thinking about picking up a 360 since I've been wanting one again but I've hit a little dilemma. I share an apartment with 2 other people, 1 in another room and the other in the same room as I am. All of us are relatively around the same age, me being the youngest. So here is the situation; I don't know if I should purchase the 360 by myself or have the other roomies contribute as well. Now here is the layout of the apartment in terms of how much I would or we would spend. The living room currently has the a 32" standard regular television set which I'm fine playing on. The main thing is the internet router is right by the TV for easy XBL hook up. No need for the wireless adapter. If I am to buy the 360 alone, I may have to keep it in the living room which will mean I'm pretty much inviting everybody to play. The reason is I don't have a TV in my room or an extra external monitor. If I were to tell them to contribute as well, then it would be ok to leave it in the living room but that might hinder the times when I may want to play it. Sorry if I'm not making sense everyone, just ask for me to clarify if anything. So yeah, that's my problem.. I guess what I'm trying to ask right now is what do you all think about this situation, if I should just tell the others to contribute, buy their own controllers and leave it outside in the living room or do the opposite and spend a lot more. Thanks again MR community for being the best!
