TV vs XBOX vs PC

If you could only have one of these three which would you select?

TV...which is where you watch HEROS or LOST or DR WHO, or whatever it is you watch...( I dont mean the hardware..I mean the programing)

XBOX/PS or whatever game system you favor among these..

COMPUTER/INTERNET.....PC and laptops and MACs, and the internet that goes with them..

Of these three media platforms, which one would you say is the most important to YOU? And why..and if you had to live the rest of your life with out the other two, could you do it?

How is that cheating? They're legitimate arguments.

Re: TV vs XBOX vs PC

Internet/PC is most important because I can't do any schoolwork without it, but I graduate in a year so I guess I could get by without one after that. My chosen career does not require a computer.

Based solely on what I get the most enjoyment out of I would choose TV.

How is that cheating? That is exactly what I'm doing all the time now.

But my answer would be PC in any case.

Re: TV vs XBOX vs PC

Seeing as my computer can do most of what my TV and my Xbox 360 do (play TV, movies and video games) but neither the TV nor the Xbox 360 can do most of what my PC can do, I'll stick with the computer.

I'm siding with computer also, Backstept...I just do so much on it now that the other two can't compare....I can watch TV (netflix usually)...I write my music on computers..then there's the porn.

I only play a few games on my XBOX360. I usually use it to watch Netflix or CDs or to download stuff from the DC COMICS page...

TV? This would be tough because I watch a lot of TV too..and, as of yet, I can't stream HIDEF tv shows via the net...

so I may actually have to with TV. If I didn't have TV, and my couldn't watch DANCING WITH THE STARS or AMERICAN IDOL, she'd go nuts and drive me nuts...

So out of self preservation I have to go with TV...but if it were just me? Computer...

XBox. Because if you get TVersity you can put all your online downloads through to your XBox and watch them on that.

Re: TV vs XBOX vs PC

I'd go for the PC, as long as I have a decent internet connection I think I'd be satisfied with that as my sole form of entertainment. I could download TV shows and Movies (legally and illegally), listen to tunes, chat with friends and even play some games on it even if the 360 is my preferred gaming platform.

Even though I adore my PS3 and my 46" LCD, I gotta go with my PC; I can play games and watch TV on it.

Re: TV vs XBOX vs PC

Well, yeah, the problem is that the PC can do everything. I can't believe I'm saying this, but other than news, I've survived without cable TV for almost two years.
