The Official Xbox 360 Thread

Post by hisroyalgingerness » Thu Jul 26, 2007 12:29 pm

i know a few of you have one and i'm well overdue a good gossip about the owd xbox

first and foremost if you haven't discovered xbox live arcade WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN?

Sonic and Golden Axe last week, Wing Commander and Sensible Soccer this week. They're giving us classic old games and adding the functionality of playing over Xbox Live, achievements and the headsets for some amazing gaming experiences. Added to Worms and Doom which I already have absolutely loving it

I think you eventually get a red ring of death if you keep it on a carpet. At the moment I've got it on an upturned Christmas dinner mat.

Not gone online on it for a while, I'm a bit wary of playing Sensible Soccer though - no joystick & it may ruin the memories of it being the best game ever.

I had the ring of death but then I unplugged it and it restarted, must have been a false alarm. Shit me up though

Don't do it SOTWA.

You know the rule, never buy a console til it has had a year on the market and amassed some decent games etc.

For any other console that would be true, but Sony have overcome any and all competitors time and time again.

There are ZERO decent PS3 games out yet.

Also you need a high-end HD TV.

I have to admit Batman is right. Wait for MGS 4, GTA etc before getting one because at the moment it's not worth it.

GTA IV - Rockstar mouthpiece says 'buy a 360'

This one's going through the Xbox fanboy community like an under-cooked chicken jalfrezi. Rockstar Games US spokesman Hosi Simon has told GamesRadar that if you want the most complete GTA IV experience, "you should buy the 360" - a reference, of course, to that version's exclusive downloadable episodes.

He's earlier quoted as saying, "They're identical games... We're not hardware makers, and we're not like a pawn between these companies, we try not to be as much as we can. We make great games for people to enjoy on whichever system they want."

Down with Microsoft. Anyways, Blue Ray is going to win. That will make a huge difference.
