I'm wondering whether I should get a 360, there are many rumours of a 720 coming out next year and I really don't wan't to buy something that will be outdated in a year again. I bought my original xbox in 2004, in 2005 the 360 came out...I keep asking myself if I really want a 7 year old game system and then I think to myself, no I don't. But I'm so bored with nothing to do and games are still coming out for xbox 360. My parents don't let me build a gaming pc as they think I will f it up and waste $1000 and they're suggesting I buy a laptop which I can use for university in 3 years..I want something below a $1000 that will give me a good gaming experience and an xbox seems like my best bet. What do you think?

Thanks for your help :D University is 3 years from now so I'm not that worried, I need something to do after I finish summer school courses. (I didn't fail, just taking grade 10 history so I can take gym).

As soon as the release of the 720 is near, I'll sell my 360 for a reasonable amount and then save for the next system, but by that point I would be very into my studies though :O
