Hi all - I've just purchased an XBOX for my son for Christmas. Having absolutely no experience of the gaming world (I'm old and can remember Astro Wars... but that's about it) can people let me know if there is anything I need to know/do to ensure it can be used fully over the X-mas period. The kinds of things I'm thinking about are: Will it play DVD's so the kids can watch their films on it OR do I need some special extra hardware or sw modification? If yes to the latter what do I need and how do I obtain it? I presume I can just plug it into the TV via SCART and away I go. Anything else I need to know like does it perform better with a good quality SCART lead. Please give me a list of any features, things I should know so I can have a hassle free christmas and get the most out of the XBOX for my son (and me ) Thanks in anticipation.
