    I got one but I haven't got it modded yet.

    Waiting for the next update to see what it does to the box.

    So many good games due out in the next month

    The Simpsons Game
    TimeShift
    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - ace game
    Assassin's Creed
    BlackSite: Area 51
    Mass Effect
    Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
    Need for Speed ProStreet

    All next month.

    If I don't get it modded that will be another $400 to buy them all.

    There is the argument that by paying full price for games you end up paying more than the cost of a new console anyway, but it would be a headache getting games transferred to a new console if your 360 gets banned, and anyway when I pay a lot more for a game, I end up being more selective, and actually play the games more too.

    Just got PGR4 and waiting for FIFA08 to arrive....

    Cause being a sad git I found out that COD4 is fucking ace online. Getting banned from playing that would be terrible.

    Run it on a top end PC and it's better.

    Run it on a normal gaming machine and they are the same

    My real problems with grat FPS games like Bioshock is that looking around and aiming is just awfully difficult with a joypad compared to a mouse and keyboard combination. I played Halo to completion on the XBox and it was fun, but I still feel there is a BIG difference between PC's and Console controls for FPS games that PC's always win hands down. It's das, because consoles are so much easier and more reliable than PC's for playing games....

    My 360 is unmodded, i've bought quite a few games in the year and a half since i've had it but honestly don't have much time to play them.

    As for the PC-Console debate... high end PC's are better but they are more expensive and most people don't have them hooked up to a big TV like you would a console.

    Mine too is unmodded, do you have the Japanese one?

    I have my PC and 360 hooked up to a projector and 133 inch screen

    Similarly don't get around to playing the games I buy much, but still buy more....

    Do you have any you'd like to sell/swap?

    The ones I NEVER play are :-
    Rumble Roses XXX
    Dead or Alive 4
    Test Drive Unlimited
    Burnout Revenge

    Others I may be prepared to part with
    Gears of War
    Tiger Woods 06

    That must be pretty cool.

    I don't have any games for swapping, I'm afraid. I'm waiting until GTA comes out before I even touch a games console again - then I'm buying a PS3.

    Tried the DiRT demo, and was always a fan of the Colin McRae's on the PC, but using the MS Steering wheel there was so much rough feedback it was jerking my wrists around too much and not in a good way either. I love feedback in driving games, but it felt not so much realistic, more just jerkiness for the sake of it. As I said though, I only played the demo. What did u think of it?

    Tried the Sega Rally demo too (but not for long) it didn't grab my attention either, not like Forza2 and PGR4 which I think are brilliant games (even got a guy online to find/make me a Spurs logo'd car!). Not played PGR4 much yet.

    Yes, playing on the big screen is brilliant, especially for Wii games where you can stand close to the screen and bowl/swing/punch at life sized stuff!

    Bought FIFA08 but not even put it in the machine yet! Looking forward to playng against a mate in the UK. I like the new idea of playing in a single position for the whole game, and apparently 5v5 online games. Was dissapointed with FIFA07. The graphics were great and some of the gaemplay was good (especially the ball being independant rather than stuck to your foot) but it turned out that the 360 version was a sad functionally reduced version of the PC game. I saw great demos of what you could do with free kicks, corners shooting etc on the PC, but after looking into forums, found that most of the great stuff was removed from the 360 version of FIFA07! Hope it's not the same story with FIFA08! Anyone played it yet?

    Tried the latest demo of Winning 11 and was very disapointed. Mostly by the graahics which look about 4 years behind FIFA now! I'm not saying graphics are everything, but they do make the game more enjoyable to play if they are good as well.

    MotoGP demo great like the previous one. I actually never bought the game because the demo was good enough for free!

    Other titles I am interested in/waiting for
    Jericho (out)
    CoD4 (out)
    Orange Box (out)
    Conan (out)
    Mass Effect
    Alone in the Dark
    Forces Unleashed
    Silent Hill 5
    Scene It
    Resident Evil 5
    UFC 2009

    I was thinking similarly a few months ago about waiting for GT5 or whatever they are calling it, before buying a PS3, but there are still not enough decent games on the console, and frankly I don't make enough time to play on the 360 so i'd really be wasting my money. I love driving games, but don't see how it will offer anything more than the Forza2/PGR4 combination already give me. In fact since I think they still don't have a steering wheel (correct me if I'm wrong) it must be a much less thrilling experience.

    nope no Xbox, not even a PS1 2 or 3, no Wii either
    fuck all nothing here, nada, zip
    I feel so sad!

    Am I missing something?
    They've came out with the 1 computer for every child scheme,
    do you think anytime soon will there be an Xbox for every adult?
    I do hope so.
    I feel so sad!

    I want Mass Effect Sooooo bad!

    COD4 is unbelievable - I just love the single player game ending. The Spectre Gunship level is waycool as well.

    I got Ace Combat 6, but it's just more of the same, sadly. Take AC 5 and put incredible graphics on it, and voila' - AC 6!
