I just bought one about 3 days ago and I love it! I got GRAW for my first game and I think it was a great decision.. The game is killer! Probably go to wallyworld tomorrow and get Oblivion. I had to get the damn core package as best buy was sold outta the premium which really blows.. I wanted the silver dvd drive wink.gif .. Oh well, I have my preorder of the chrome faceplate and dvd drive cover from Xtender. Cant wait to get it.. too bad I have to wait till mid april for it to come it. I really hope that in the near future we will be able to run homebrew apps on it. I can just imagine the possibilites of XBMC running on the 360. Great console! I've had no probs with over heating, lock up's or anything and I've been playin the hell outta it.

I got a core on Nov. 22. I had to wait in line at Wal-mart tongue.gif, it was only for about 4 hours. I just found an HDD in my area about two weeks ago, so ive been enjoying the fruits of the marketplace.

I work at GameStop so it wasn't hard. smile.gif
On my second now....

First one had overheating problems and sent it to a repair facility in Texas. They sent me a new one with an EXTRA HDD because I sent my with it. So I had 2 HDD's

Second one came and they gave me a complimentary 2 year service contract for switching my Live account to 360 since I've had live since day 1. No problems yet and thoroughly enjoying Oblivion ATM.

Got mine on Launch Day! Waited in my car outside of walmart and was planning to go stand in line when ppl started to show up. Then I awoke and it was 9 in the morning, not good. All the 360's were sold out at the store I was at so i raced down to Future shop and got myself the last core, not to proud of the core but it was available.

No glitches no freezes!

Don't have one, Don't want one. I was not a big fan of the games on the Xbox (mainly FPS's) and I'm not a fan of online play so buying a Xbox 360 would be a big waste of cash on my part. I have 9 different console's hooked up right now so I think I'm good on the whole console front. I even own some dupes incase one of my consoles breaks on me I won't have to go out and buy a new one. wink.gif


Hello. You have 9 consoles? I hope their the ones that cant be emulated. You must be collecting them. I had all the consoles from atari all the way up2 today, but i only use the emulators to play my games. The PC/Xbox can emulate Most of the consoles anyway. Takes up less space & can do things the orignals can't.

I love playing my X360. Oblivion is not an online multiplayer game. You think all x360 games are going to be fps? Most games can be played online, offline, system-link, co-op, etc... If you don't want to play online then don't, but you do spend a lot of time online with your computer. So are you going to get a PS3? if yes, then are you going to play online? if yes, then you just made a false statement. If not . Have fun playing all by yourself.

Hells yeah I got 2 on the day before they were released in stores then sold one on ebay and kepted the

other.

So far all is good as far as no bugs or faulty hardware.

I think I will buy another one when a modchip comes out just so I can play backups and homebrew.

And if nothing happens soon I may buy a new original xbox and mod it to play backups and Media.

Got lucky and got mine in December, however I'm on my 3rd one now.

First one had lock up issues with the red ring of light

Second one, same thing.

Third one works fine. Lovin Oblivion. I do have to compliment MS on how quick a turn around there is on exchanging my faulty systems. The whole process only took about a week and a half to get my good system. Only bad thing was that one of reps told me to format my HDD when it wasn't necessary. Good thing that was before Oblivion came out.

The 360 is a waste of money to me. I might be in a small percent but the way I see it is that my xbox runs circles around the 360. People say to me I should get one because of 50 inch HD plasma but i'm not too concerned oh how a game looks because when I buy a game I buy it for the game play and not the graphics. I will admit that when the 360 is as expandable as the xbox I will get one.

Some of the consoles I own can be emulated but the emu is just not the same as the console itself. Room is not an issue with me and yes I like to collect games and consoles. I know Oblivion is not online and I'm aware that not all online games are FPS. I'm also aware that I can play Oblivion on my PC so why waste $400 USD on a Xbox 360 for one game, that is a waste of cash. No, I'm not getting a Playstation 3 either so it's not that I'm hating on the Xbox 360. I've played my friend's Xbox 360 and I just was not impressed with it. I just don't care for modern gaming anymore as it's all about graphics and online play. Gaming use to be gamers making games for gamers but now it's all about CEO's making their pockets as fat as possible. Games themselves are just not as good as they use to be, IMO. So I'm done with modern gaming as I just don't enjoy most of the modern games.
