I think they've already revised the 360 twice, the new ones are the 3.0 so I think most of the issues are taken care of, it's probably safe to buy one and not have to worry about it. 

Looks like they started to use Samsung dvd drives which are supposed to be quieter:

o yea n jus to let yall know Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter comes out this tuesday march 7th n ign gave it  a 9.2 making it there highest rated 360 game so far heres a link to the review,game looks dope as fuck

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/694/694274p1.html



props mang.  i'ma cop halo2 for sure!  i was kinda sad coz i thought 360 wouldn't play it but now you've given me some great fuckin news haha.  and BTW Ghost Recon looks fuckin sick ass hell i'm probably gonna cop this after COD2.  do you play online much???  if you do then we can probably get a game going or something you know.  i just started playing 360 online yesterday because i got a router so i could play in my room without any of my family complaining about the internet being down haha. 

Thats tight man,ive been starting to playonline quite a bit,b4 i didnt really play that much,most of the time im playin NBA 2k6, im hopin to get fightnight tho within the next few weeks so we can prolly play that,what other games u got or gonna get soon?


well i got Halo2 just today and im about to play online.  We can play fight night or i'm probably going to get COD2 or Ghost Recon if i can find it
yo man if i was u id get Ghost Recon,that shit is suppose to be sick online, dont get me wrong though COD2 is sick too ,but online wise Ghost Recon is better ,plus single player is suppose to be sweet too,maybe get GRAW now and get COD2 later on,cuz there suppose to release a patch soon for COD2 which fixes some of the online bugs and the lag , o yea btw how u likin Halo 2?

yeah i'm probably going to get Ghost Recon then.  Thanks for the advice and btw i'm loving Halo2 online.  I always make it a point to say i have 360 and not the first xbox hahaha
Oh I like this one... One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way, and this guy's sayin', "Whadda ya want from me?

Interesting news concerning possible reasons for some X360s overheating:

Pretty embarassing for MS, but it's good someone found out about this.

yea ill prolly cop it pretty soon,i started playing GRAW and the games great,excellent graphics n everything n the online is dope, i also played COD2 online for the first time (bein playin the single player) n it lags quite a bit man, its a really good game but the lag is holding it back,so i would say to go with GRAW for now until infinity ward gives us a patch to minimize the lag

Are you guys using HDTV?
I bought a 50 inch Sony LCD today (or yesterday cause it's 3 am) plus a special table.
Cost me around 1800 euro, don't know exactly cause I didn't pay in euros, don't know how much it is in dollars.
But the way games look now is FUCKING INCREDIBLE.
My brother came and took some photos for me cause I don't have a digital camera. I'll post them when I find out a way to do it.
Shit, I'll be paying for this TV for a year, but believe me it's worth it.  ;D

Here they are (hope it's done correctly), in the second one you can see reflection of a camera flash):

Only Kameo and Condemned.  There's no Xbox360 distribution in my little Eastern European country :) so it's a real problem getting games here and even though we're in European Union now Microsoft doesn't give a fuck - Sony owns the games market, only PS2 games everywhere. MS won't even let us register to Xbox Live cause X360 doesn't officially exist here. HDTVs aren't sold either cause there's no HD signal broadcast yet and there's no demand. I had to order and wait for almost a month to get the tv.

I was using Live with Xbox. Registered with a fake British address and paid with my Visa - they didn't verify the address when charging.
It doesn't seem to work anymore but I've been talking with friends in Great Britain so they'll be paying for me with their cc. I have to buy a router first and connect the net to the console in a neat way - so far I've been using ICS net sharing with my PC (so the computer had to be turned on all the time) and 20 meters of cable laying loosely on the floor lol

Condemned is the best x360 game so far imo, COD2 is very close behind. Haven't played Ghost Recon yet, ordered it through the net, but fucking Gamestop just sent me e-mail that they'll be sending it at the end of March. It didn't stop them from charging my cc though. :)
