Getting a 360

Gonna buy a 360 soon and I'll prolly only get 1 game. So... what's a must-have game? Right now I'm assuming Halo 3. Need something with good reply value. Rock Band/GH are already on my PS3 so those are out.

You're going to buy a Xbox360 just so you can deal with the system overheating? And then pay money to ship it to get it fixed and wait months to get it back?

What's even funnier is, they release an intercooler adapter to rectify the problem. But here's the catch - you have to pay for it!!!

Here's another tibit, since Blue-ray is winning the HD race, guess who's switching over to Blue-Ray? Yup, Xbox360 will be coming out a new system compatible with Blue-Ray discs.

Can we say :pwnd?!!!

-The newer versions runner quieter and dont over heat like the first gen models... I have a first gen and have no problems. My bro and couple other friends have the newer model and have had no heating problems.

-The intercooler isnt made by microsoft and is being my by 3rd parties.

-Who cares about Hd dvd, the console is made for gaming

-Microsoft said it would consider using bluray if the gamers demanded it, but its not 100% comfirmed. HOw is Microsoft owned when its out selling the ps3?? I seem to recall the ps3 vs the xbox 360 games, it seems the xbox runs smoother has less lag issues, better online interface. I have yet to see one game rated better on the ps3 then the xbox 360 (same game).. Remember, also Madden 08 runs at 60fps on 360, vs 30fps on the ps3 which means it runs alot smoother, gameplay is better.

I have a ps3 and xbox 360, that thing sits in the dust. I use the Wii alot more thne the ps3.

If you want a good shooter get Call of duty 4 or Halo 3. The new Splinter Cell, RainbowSix are due out spring, and Ghost Recon fall.

When was Xbox360 releaseed and when was PS3 released? Compare 360's 1st yr vs PS3's first yr which was last year. Compare apples to apples, and you will have your answer.

Why care about Blu-Ray? Because having the ability to play Blu-Ray on your gaming system vs having to buy a separate unit to do so puts PS3 above which is why Xbox360 will go that route.

Lets not turn this into a PS3 vs. 360 war please. Start your own thread for that Each system has its ups and downs, which is why I want both.

Another 360(360 Pro in particular, the 20 gb version) question I had. Does it have an optical output for audio?

Halo 3 is an awesome game, and a must have IMO for 360 owners! If you do get it, I would highly recommend a xbox live subscription, the multiplayer and playing online with your friends is what makes it replayable. It's the only game I have for my 360.

yes all 360 models have fiber optic output for surround sound.
