Read/Scratch-disc issues with DVD-ROM
Believe it or not, im on my 3rd replacement drive and had 2 previous laser replacements. Tweaked the pots when it came to that time. Rubberband mod, fan shroud, additional fan. Im shocked to see that its more important then a web browser tho! HA.
What really saddens me is that im clumped in with the idiots that move their 360 while its running and scratch their discs!

Other factorz are minor 2 me and i can live with, except more supportive file types. ??? in today's wide world of different media formats its nice to be able to have a platform to play them all other than your pc. This would allow u to utilize the hd like its meant and make the 360 a great media center for your home entertainment system. The main factor i believe is microsoft dosent want its owners to use the 360 for viewing illegal downloaded content on their system. remember when xbox1 first came out i remember it wouldnt read burnt discs which they changed later, maybee the same will happen with this issue further down the road.

Good thing when i bought my bekin wireless router ($20) i took 5 minute to learn now i know if you buy a wireless router alot of brands have a mode that will pick up wireless signals instead of emit (access point) and then route it to the 360, PC, xbox, pos2, pos3, ect. not just The 360. So i just saved $60 to $80 depending on how you look at it.
PS. down with windows, Ubuntu Linux is free and more secure, way faster (fast enough to not even remember what windows is), ultra stable, more customize, more everything, if you dont belive me you can try it without installing it, can windows do that no (not without hacking *cough* mini XP *cough*)

Well, for one thing, if people bought a core system opened it up, and bought halo 2 and a memory card, then they would get mad just to know that you NEED a HDD for original xbox games.
if thats all they bought, why not get an xbox? if they did a bit of research, it very well documented that the harddrive is required for backwards compatibility. if they cheaped out and didn't do their research, its their own fault.

I really wish that it had HDMI from launch, then I wouldn't have to save up for a new system to watch Planet Earth without crappy lines floating on the screen in 1080p over component! Damn you AACS! DAMN YOU TO HELL!
