    You would have to buy a bunch of games to cover that $40. Go register on cheapassgamer.com - they always point out the best deals all the time.

    yeah, it's for both of us, but he wanted the xbox 360. i told him I didn't like very many games they have for it, but I found a few I liked. We have a play station2, but my daughter took it over.

    The deal was he would pay half and it would be our holiday gift combined....so until he pays his half it's mine.

    LOL when I was playing the guy was on advanced level and I'm on easy still messing up and my Bf said it's probably a kid playing, but he was at least a teen. At one point he started talking to someone at his house and the voice was deep.

    I've been playing guitar hero so far and trying to drive the car game. That's really hard.

    I went to 4 stores and they were all out of the extra controllers. I finally just order edit online. It will be here tomorrow.

    I so want to figure out the live gold area, but it just seems to lead to nowhere. Does a game have to be in to get there?

    I joined a group called League of Amateur Gamers. It is a bunch of mostly married men and women in their 30s like like to have fun while playing. If anyone else is interested, let me know. And this is not SPAM even though it sounds like it is. lol

    The Silver will allow you to make a friends list and show your status online. You will not be able to actually play online, that is what you need Gold for. Everyonce in a while, they have a free weekend promotion, but those are kind of rare. They do have 48 hour gold membership cards that come with a lot of new games. You can always set up your silver account and keep the name it gives you and then try the gold trial card to see if online gaming is what you want to do. I have killed a lot of hours plyaing online with friends, it is a lot of fun.

    I love the 360, but I had an Xbox since the beginning. The online is outstanding and it is only $50 a year. The only problem is the public rooms tend to get a little frustrating with the young kids yelling and screaming and using the F word every couple seconds. If you do get the 360 and want to go online, I suggest getting involved with a group of people that play for fun and dont have to curse and scream.

    We're going to get the xbox from a regular store today.The price is the same (except I will have to pay tax) and I figure if something is wrong with it it will be easier to return.

    I'm defiantly interested in the online group, but we have to get the system first and set it up. It says it comes with a silver online thing. Does that allow for game lay or do we have to buy gold for that?

And with your XBX chances are good that you will need to take advantage of the plan... cuz they go out very, very often.

    im definately digging the 360 now that most of my franchises are going multi-platform...only thing that saddens me ismy BIG one hasnt jumped ship yet.

    that said, the 360 was a hard sell originally for me. I'm a fanboy of the big N primarily (never leave home without the DS) and Sony's always had the things I want...but this generation seems to have changed the rules and I'm definately pleased with my purchase of the 360.

    I got the Halo 3 edition. I like green =]

    Be aware that with online, it's $50/year. You can buy it for less time, but the year subscription is the cheapest. Gregg is right, it doesn't have wifi out of the box, but can be added later with an additional piece of hardware that plugs into the back of the actual console.

    That having been said, the gameplay, graphics, and online components of the 360 are incredible and it's a purchase I haven't once regretted.

    I don't have a 360, but from what I understand the online play is amazing.

    I think I've heard though that the 360 does not offer WiFi and you have to make sure you have an ethernet set up within reach of your system.

    Yes, that is the one we have been eying.

    I read you can also play online against other people. Does that work out well? I guess I play online games on the computer and the xbox is a computer, but I can't wrap my mind around it.

    If you buy a Pro (white box) or an Elite (black/gray box) right now until the holidays, you get two free games bundled in the box. Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance (it's not the gold edition).

    Yeah, there have been a lot of updates to the consoles over the last couple of months. The Pro should have HDMI and maybe the new cooler running chip.

    The games are a recent addition. Forza is a fantastic game. You also have a strong library of games to back up your purchase.
