    Hmm.. Hope it isn't true since I just bought the US Xbox package lol. Would rather have a PAL Xbox modified into an NTSC, if only for the voltage issues. Still, a decent stepdown converter is all that I need (200W or more) so it should be alright.

    my understanding is that you can pick any three games you want, but i'm not 100% on that. but as far as i'm aware its anything you want.

    yes you should resist, as you are bored at work, why dont you spend your time trying to come up with 24 decent AAA titles for the PS2? that only one a month since its UK launch? oh and make sure that they are not avaible on any other format.

    I doubt that the package will include any 3 titles... It sounds like it'll be more like the US package currently out -

    Jet Set Radio: Future
    SegaGT
    Timesplitters II or Unreal Championship or Blinx

    If it is any 3 games then my first three would probably be Halo, Colin Mcrae 3 and Tekki <swg> ^_^

    I'll reserve judgement until it happens but if that is the case, Blockbusters can expect a decent December ^_^

    Is it just me, or is Blockbuster nearly becoming a viable place to buy games? I've picked up a few cheap PC games at my local, and seen some great deals on pre-played console games. Provided there are no scratches, it's well worth checking the sale rack.
