how about, the PAC kit, and two games?

EDIT: or the PAC kit, a cheaper USB Adapter (like the linksys one), and one game???

DO NOT GET PLAY AND CHARGE KIT, I repeat Do not.

Waste of money. Wal-Mart hass a rechargeable battery set for 14$ comes with 4 baatteries, so you can keep 2 wireless remotes at full power, and it take 2 hours to full charge, and they last about 30 hrs.

I would buy DOA4 for a game though, and then just hold out since youalready have most of the good games.

it's not a waste, you can't play while charging the other kits.

well Cod1 on pc online was truly amazing, one of the bets online games EVER.

cod;fh on xbox online was a let down

but cod:2 on x360 online is great, it plays much like it did on pc, you'll be reminded of the pc version when your playing, and also of the xbox 360 version weh your L blink.gif king at it !

Pick up halo 2 like you said... I have seen it lately for $20
If any of the 360 games are tempting you then go for them...
I have COD2 and I mostly play online.... it sux because of lag.
I think I might buy PGr3 then sit till March when Ghost recon comes out.
First year on a new system is always slow on soft titles

I will also be buying the Battlefield modercombat 360 version...
I can't get enough of that game.

ok so heres what i would do

1. Halo2 (its like 20-30 dollars and worth every bit)
2. CoD2 ( i dont have the 360 or have played the 360 version yet, but i have the comp game and play constantly){also u might want to rent it first to see if u like it, halo 2 there is no doubt but games now are 60 bucks so...}
3. Play and Charge kit (unless u have like 1000 AA batteries)
u now have 40 bucks left sooo
4. A faceplate, theyre very stylish
5. Look for an old xbox game that u would have fun playing in single player when ur bored (i just pick up whatever i see for like 10 or 15 dollars)

That's good advice. I think I'll return the PAC kit that came with my Costco bundle and use the credit to buy a 15-minute charger and battery set from Wal-mart.

If ur getting an old single player xbox game, get Prince of Persia: sands of time. Very fun game, and will take some time to finish, good to play when ur bored, and only like $10. Other PoP games arent compatible yet, but im hoping they will be soon.
