    Oh do I need one of those then ? :D

    Console came with Over G so will try that and I will borrow GR:AW from a mate.

    I was thinking more about that Live stuff and Marketplace and whatever the hell that stuff is all about...

    Do you have it connected to the net for Live? You should get one month free Live subscription and you can download the Dead Rising and Saints Row demos, as well as loads of HD trailers, Audioslave music videos, etc from the XBOX Live Marketplace.

    Are you going to stream music/pictures from your PC - go to www.xbox.com/pcsetup (I think?) and download the necessary Media Connect software.

    Connect your iPod/MP3player/digital camera/etc via the USB socket and enjoy them on the big screen!

    The possibilities are endless - but the games are the best!

    If you're into old-school games check out the XBOX Live Arcade too - Street Fighter II, PacMan, etc

    And most of all - enjoy!

    Paul.

    Connect to Xbox Live and download all the free stuff you can get your hands on.
    You don't need any games, download the decent demos, e.g. Dead Rising, BF2, Lost Planet etc.

    not to pee on ya chips, but you did get a premium pack, didnt you?

    Otherwise market place is a bit off limits till you get a hard drive.

    welcome to the world of HD gaming:hiya:

    It doesn't even look like he's played a game on it yet, nothing showing up on the gamercard. Get a game played man!

    Give the fella a break! Out of any console that's been available or IS available the 360 is the most elaborate to date and isn't the easiest to navigate first time around...

    C'mon guys give me a break I only got it in my lunch hour today! Not even been home yet !!

    I'm just after learning a bit about the non-gaming side of the console from people who have had them a while. Is that not what these forums are all about ? If you dont want to help you dont have to post or read the thread do you ? Jeez sorry I offended you mate.... :)
