    Get the premuim. For one, even if you download A LOT of movies and shows, you can only watch them for 24 hours, then you have to pay to download it again. You "rent" the movies and shows. I thought that was lame and didnt bother to download anything else as it was a waste. With that there would be no way for me to fill up the 20 gig cause if i download a movie to my PC ill just S-video it to my tv. The point is, its pointless to have more space on a 360. The HD isnt worth 80 bucks and the 120gig HDD is stupid.

    only movies get deleted. TV shows are 1 time payment and you keep them forever.

    I'm really close to getting an Elite. I'm getting for several reasons. One I'd like to have that much space in case I do want to download a movie or something. Plus your game saves are saved on the Hard Drive right? Am I correct in that sovieto? Also I like the Black Finish and the black color in general over the white one. And HDMI does sound nice. I like to have more options rather than less. Anyways here are the games I want for it now. The trick is getting the money for all of them...lol. Plus I'm not sure if I can get an Elite in store right now or whether I should go to eBay.

    hmm tbh, i only read the games you were looking forawrd to, not reading the first paragraph thinking it was some nonsense about what the main poster should choose. :crazy:

    okay, yes, all saves, all what not, are saved on to your harddrive, which is mind you detachable to bring over a friends house or what not.
    also you can only have 1 xbox live profile per box, but can have plenty of regular profiles:smilewinkgrin:

    1st Thanks Sovieto for the response...:cool:


    2nd wiisawesome I was banned for some unknown reason following the flame war wiicammy and some other posters initiated over a month ago regarding the PS3 (what else is new?). Anyways suffice to say I've realized whats going on this board and how certain things won't change. Sad but true. But the positive is that I got to focus on school/graduation plus planning my future. Kinda refreshing talking with normal mature human beings. But thanks for the concern. Glad to know some people missed me. I also missed several of you.


    Anyways I'm looking forward to getting an Elite and the great games I mentioned above. If anyone knows more about the release dates that aren't set in stone I'd really love to know.

    haha i dont know how good i am at these kind of things but i would say
    with gba: atleast $75
    without: atleast $70
    they dont give much for gbas or gba games, and it widely depends on what GC/ps2 games they are
    i suggest just calling up or going to the store

    *this is all based on my experience with gamestop*

    Thats why I'm waiting for the pictures and real confirmation before I pay. In fact I'd like to recieve a tracking number for the shipping and as soon as he or she sends me that information I'll send the money. But yeah you're right its incredible. I really hope shes telling the truth.

    I'll keep you up to date however.

    Throwin it up for the big SD.
    considering where many individuals are at with thier wii... in denial that the games so far are just not hitting the mark...

    i'd say an extra $70 to see a little LESS white would be worth it. :O
