I broke down and bought an XBox 360...

...because I was broke. I wouldn't be able to afford the PS3 and a game when it came out, so I bought the premium XBox package for 4 bills. Now this comes with a 1-year free subscription to XBox Live, right? Anybody have the little adapter for the Box so you don't have to run a wire to your modem? How much was it?

Also, this is probably going to turn into "my questions about the XBox thread". Feel free to ask your questions here too.

MotoGP '06 sucks. Not graphic wise, but camera view and physics wide. Picked up ghost Recon and it f'n kicks ass! I think I played for 10 hours this weekend. Saw a preview for Gears of War too. INSANE!! The new Tony Hawk is trick too. Comes out next week. I might buy that next, I don't know yet.

Please don't turn this into a PS3 vs. 360 thread. There's already one around here.

It's a matter of money. And I need to have something while I'm in Korea.

You probably could have waited and got it in Korea for cheaper...

No way I can hold on to a check that long. I'm happy with it.

No one has answered my questions yet.

I am debating selling my extra preorder early. They are going for 2000+ right now on ebay. I will easily get my money back for the one I am keeping.

Not always true, my parents bought a Xbox in UAE that has no regional coding. It can play DVDs and games from anywhere.

I didn't know they were available with that option. Just be careful that you get your games to match the format of your player.

Nice! You wont regret it. There are some great games out for it and more to come. Get Test Drive Unlimited and especially Gears of War. Emergence Day is 11/12/06 but I get my copy tomorrow F.E.A.R is supposed to be pretty awesome too.

They make transformers for it. Just make sure you use a good surge protector.
