Just a quick poll to see how many new 360 owners there are or whether you will be buying one in the near future. It seems like loads of people are jumping on the 360 wagon, most of my mates have ended up picking one up due to the lack of patience for the ps3 and because there are loads of decent games out at the minute.

Yup. My first console since the Atari 2600. I've been a PC Game fan for some time but wanted to explore some Hi-Def big screen gaming so got the 360.

To be honest it's great for racing games but I'm really struggling with the lack of keyboard and mouse control for first/third person shooters. I'm a complete joke with Gears of War and I'm slightly better at CoD3. I tried a demo of Lost Planet the other day and for some reason I was a little better on this one, still [email protected] though.

I joined Xbox Live also. Had two games of PGR3 and got my @ss kicked. Mind you most were running F50's and I was with my favourite car of the moment, the Ariel Atom 300. :)

All in all, it's not bad and having just purchased "Geometry Wars" all is not lost. This is old school and great fun. Defender next. :smashin:

I should say I've convinced my bros and a mate this Xmas to get the 360 and they have obliged. :)
 
I just picked one up on boxing day, i think it's an outstanding bit of kit, the only samll downside is i'm amazed how loud it is. I picked up GOW, R6:Vegas, PGR3 and Smackdown as part of the package and they all look the business.

This morning i set myself a task to set up TVersity to stream the xvid's from my PC upstairs to the xbox/plasma downstairs and i'm so far very impressed with the quality. :clap:

Im not but I think there will be a fair few new people you will find. I managaed to persuade two of my mates to get one over the last two weeks and someone at work is getting one today/tomorrow as well!!

It's all good. The more the merrier I say!!!

I've always been a big sony fan and was originally waiting for the PS3, never though in a millions year that I would move over to the dark side...........
took the plunge just before christmas after seeing the reviews for Gears of War, and partly because I was sick and tired waiting for the PS3 to finally arrive, have to admit not only is the game absolutely brilliant, but the Xbox 360, is one amazing bit of Kit.

yep

picked up one the gamestation deals (rainbow6) about three weeks ago. Great machine esp with the the live stuff...which i only tried out last night for the first time....can't wait for some of the new games due this year...

Only downsides are the great big long cat5 cable running from router downstairs to 360 in spare room upstairs (£60 is too much for what's only a wireless dongle) and I was ripped in the trade forum (my rainbow six for GoW he received mine next day his didn't arrive and now doesn't answer pm)

game on:rolleyes:
 
Yep new to xbox 360. Got signed up to live but my NATs are moderate and have problems connecting to some friends games.

If this could be fixed I would be a happy chap.

Got my son one for xmas. Havent really played his old xbox, it was ok but didnt light my fire like in the old days of youth, scouring the arcades to play the likes of pacland!

this 360 I cant get of the damn thing! I am young again :rotfl:

Its an amazing piece of kit and 'Need for Speed Carbon' in a dark room with surround sound turned up is taking me back to my youth racing round back roads smoking pot.

Funny downloading pacman, frogger etc and saying to my son, wow this is what daddy used to play, exciting isnt it! Street fighter II vs Dead or Alive 4 which is better son. Hmmm whats that look :rotfl: :D

Wow what a great piece of kit.

Bought it for my lads with a bundled CoD3 game, charge and play kit and second controller. Can't get off it !

Bit annoying taking turns with the children playing CoD online. connected to the PC with no trouble at all streaming movies ( SD) family photos, mp3 etc.

All in all superb!!

I got the wheel too, never been into wheels as most of the console wheels have been rubbish, i never did try the gran turismo 4 wheel (logitech one) but am very pleased with the 360 one, i couldn't go back to a controller now, .

My beautiful wife suprised me on Christmas day with the 360 :thumbsup:
The best thing about it though was that she ordered a core system (she did not know that there was 2 different systems) and the nice company she got it from sent out the premium system by mistake for the same price :D

Vey impressed with the 360, and Gears of War is a stunning game :smashin:
