    Lots of people seem to be getting 2, 3, or more games to go with the 360 on December 2nd. What will the percentage split be for time spent on each game that first week?

    I think mine will be a 60%/40% split of PGR3 and COD2. There will be another game or two that I get, but I don't know what they are yet!

    The way PGR3 is looking though, that's gonna get the bulk of my attention first, I think!

    100% PGR3. I got some crushing news the other day. Ive been banned from buying any 360 games. :(
    The inlaws want to get me a couple for xmas, which is very nice of them but it means i only get to play PGR3 in December. (Assuming my 360 turns up that is)

    Just a quick question; Will be able to buy games easily on release day like NFS:Most Wanted & PGR3 or will they need to be pre-ordered like the console?

    i'll be glad when the thing is finally out so this forum can discuss something else like real game play. some of these threads are getting very tedious.

    It like watching a news channel for more than half hour :rolleyes: :boring: :boring: :boring:

    I used to hate that as a kid. Your parents give you a tip off that your going to be getting certain games from either them or a relative. You had your eye on a game and then you have to wait a month until december 25th!!

    its more that i'd like to read something else. i'm still waiting for the following threads -

    xbox 360 - Vertical or Horizontal?
    xbox 360 pad - sleep with it on the pillow or under it?

    this forums seems to have been clogged up for months with aimless drivel. yes some stuff has been worth reading but most of it has been tripe.

    how TF can any one say how much time they will give to a game!! depends how good they are when WE PLAY THEM - i cannot tell if one thing will be better than another based on screen shots, ropey video and the prose of over excited journalists.

    To be honest with a new console generation about to begin there isn't really anything else that comes close to it at the moment in the gaming world. It's a public forum and people discuss what is of interest to them.

    If the subjects seem inane and boring to you then don't read them. There are plenty of other threads in the gaming forums or...heaven forbid...you could even make your own thread, which i'm sure will be infinitly more interesting to you ;) . I agree that some threads have been repititious and that is why numerous threads have been closed (mainly regarding 360 shortages). What is prehaps more annoying though are people who's only real input on the forums is slagging off existing threads.

    Anyway back on topic and my time will probably be spent like this...

    PGR3 - 90%
    COD2 - 10%

    especially initially and COD2 may well get more play after say the first week. I do expect that PGR3 will get the vast majority of my time though. :smashin:

    Agreed, duplicate threads are a pain but these quickly get closed down. There have been quite a few good 360 threads though and I don't see anything wrong with this one. You can't blame people for being exited at the upcoming launch of the 360 and let's face it, apart from GTA LCS on the PSP and PES5 there's not much else to discuss in the gaming world at the moment.

    im not slating this thread CAS i was basically generalising i have no problem with someone asking how/where/when we will spend time on our console. i was basically getting at the duplicate thread thing but its happened so many times it took the mickey abit. i really hope your up to the task of mod'in :devil: (which im sure you are) when the console is out because i can see 10 threads on each game,console,accessories, people's reviews of games the full works. maybe an idea to create about 3 sticky's at the end of november to nip it in the bud. like "Official Game Talk", "Official Hardware Talk" & "Official XBL Talk" etc :)

    its proved to work take the PGR3 thread, ive not seen one other thread on it since that its full to the brim with news, discusion and its kept in order :)

    I think that something like that should be done. We should also have a big pop up that comes on screen every time someone goes to make a new thread saying "HAVE YOU READ THE STICKIES!". I'm sure that some games like PGR3 and COD2 will warrant their own threads once they are released as I can see the amount of PGR3 posts being quite high. That said people should be playing, not posting ;) . There will probably be an eerie scilence from the people with 360's and the rest will be on here moaning that they didn't get one :D .
