    Anyone got one?

    Pre-ordered mine on July 31. Got told a couple of days before the release (Nov. 22) that they didn't have enough. (Apparently I was # 48 / 98). Fast forward to 12/27, I got the call, mine was in!!! yaaayyyyy.

    Premium Kit of course.

    Bought Gun, Perfect Dark Zero (Collector's Edition), Need For Speed: Most Wanted, and Condemmed. All used, and it was buy 3 get 1 free. Didn't want Condemned, but hey, it was free, and they've got a 7 day return policy.

    NFS: MW - it's ok
    Gun - Awesome game. A bit short, as I'm 64% done, and I've only played it for 6 hours or so. Probably will return it and slap the credit for a pre-order for something else.

    Haven't played the other 2 yet.

    Already downloaded and installed the small program to share files from my PC to the 360. 360 auto detected media files in My Documents folder. Look great.

    XBOX 360 games have "achievements". Basically badges for doing crap in a game. When you get one, an icon pops up in the game, not intrusive IMHO, although some people may think so. It's cake to pause a game and to switch into the 360 menus, and then back into a game.

    Not much worth downloading as of yet. Haven't tried XBOX games on it yet (gotta check out the compatibility list later).

    Holding out for the PS3. The Xbox 360 does nothing for me.

    Meh, I'll buy them all

    PS3 and Nintendo Revolution do something the XBOX 360 doesn't: True backwards compatibility. The PS3 will play all PS1/2 games, and the Revolution will let you download games that were previously release on old Nintendo systems. Xbox 360 is only compatible with 200 or so Xbox games.

    We're not getting it until March 2 here, in Australia. Sucks.

    PS3 doesn't do anything for me, will prolly only get the Xbox 360

    Beat Gun already. Short game, very good though. Rent it. finishing up side missions for the achievements on XBox Live

    Condemned: meh. Just as dark as Doom 3, only have melee weapons for a good part of it (only played for an hour or so, but an hour too long IMHO). Hated it.

    Perfect Dark Zero: Meh. Looks like XBox graphics. Not worth it.

    NFS: MW - Probably going to pick up the Black version.


    Returning them all, waiting for some real games to come out.

    Yeah, it's prolly hard to judge it when there are only "ports" out.

    Have you tried Kameo?

    Gun was really smooth looking, not much of a diff going from normal TV to HD though. Already beat it @ normal mode @ 100%.

    Not yet, looks ok, not worth $60 IMHO.

    If you had a PS3, you'd be running it off a 1080p HDTV. Two of them.

    Damn skippy!

    I'm running it between different things. Sometimes my 23 inch standard TV, sometimes my Dell 20 inch Wide screen LCD monitor (sans sound). Really easy to switch between them, as my XBox 360 is right between them.

    Got a brand new 26 inch wide screen HD TV in another room, but not really comfy to play in there. Coincidentally, I saw this same TV in a Gamestop demo setup for the 360.


    Gotta remember to slap it on the 55 inch TV in the living room one of these days


    NFS: MW doesn't have a black version, so I kept it. Also picked up Dead or Alive 4. DOA 4's AI cranks up like crazy after 5 / 8 guys in story mode. ****in' a that sucks.
