    I bought a 360Elite yesterday. I still have my Wii though.

    Why the 360. Hmm, I'm seriously disappointed that online multiplayer is being poorly implemented. I've had the Wii since Dec 26 and the only freaking online game we have is Pokem Revolution (and that's my daughter's)

    So, since my son and neighbor have a 360, now I can play games with friends online. Why don't I just use my son's? Well, it turns out the games I think are fun don't allow "on console" multiplay, only system-link or online.

    Crackdown is a BLAST.

    Oh and one sleeper 360 game which is a blast too - Earth Defense Force 2019. It's only single player or "on console" co-op split screen, but it's great mindless fun.

    Many people on this site, including me, agree that XBox Live is much better than the Wii's current online play. PSNetwork is also decent. That's one thing the Wii needs to work on, it's online play.

    I didn't really like Crackdown. It is great, but when I rented it it only took my one night to complete it, and there isn't much you can do once you have beat it. I didn't try it online though so I can't comment on that.

    Its not really that hard. You just have to kill a few people. I was kinda pissed off. I was staying over at my friends house and I thought that it would keep us entertained for a while, but it was just a waste of $10. I'm really glad I didn't buy it, because that is what I had planned on doing, I just decided to rent it first.

    I'm not one of those people who rushes through a game. You say you completed it in one night. I have to beg differences. Yes you killed all the bad bosses and kingpins, but you didn't max out your stats, complete all the races, collect all 500 agility orbs and 300 hidden orbs, or kill all the lackeys before going after the bosses.

    No offense, but your method is like winning a hurdle race, only you didn't jump the hurdles you ran on the outside of them while everyone else jumped them.

    Eh, I would have done that if I was the only one there as I am an RPG fan and always spend tons of hours just leveling and stuff, but I was playing it with my friend and it wouldn't be too fun to watch each other build our skills. Besides it isn't very fun to level for no reason once you have already beat the main game. What would be the point of it? So that you can kick pedestrians over buildings?

    Were you playing co-op with your friend or just him and you sitting in front of the console and him telling you what to do?

    Reason I ask is having played the game and my watching my son play through it before I bought it, I can't see how you could even make it to a few of the bosses without getting your agility above 3 stars. That's not possible without collecting a bunch of orbs or running quite a few agility races. Unless you were playing co-op with someone who already has a 3+ guy and he helped out. Not to mention getting to Wang (the last big bad guy) takes a long time if you run the gaunlet inside the tower. Going up outside you have to have high agility.

    Just wondering, how many hours do you mean by "in one night"?

    I'm just curious if there's some tricks I might want to know about :)

    No, he only had one controller and I didn't think to take mine over so we just passed it off every once in a while. He did most of the boss things since he is much better at it than me. We probably had about two stars in everything once we got to the end though just from killing everybody and stuff. And by one night I mean probably about eight hours or something, I didn't keep track of the exact time.

    Yay you're alive now! Congrats(I so far am still dead inside)! Yea Crackdown was a blast when I tried it at my friends! Gears too!

    Wii's online play is utter crapola! Yay for Live because I'm going to be alive soon or partially(PS3)!

    =] Thanks for listening!

    It isn't too bad. The only thing Live really has over it is the marketplace has a lot more stuff and it has a unified friends list. Besides that it is just as good as Live. And by comparison to the Wii it is excellent.

    I haven't experienced any lag on it, so that isn't a problem.

    yeah most people who are bias to nintendo do not like microsoft there for the dark side remark. nintendo people usually dont like fps oriented games from what ive seen and 360 has a lot of them, most of the 360 library involves shooting. i for one, want to own a wii, 360, and ps3 by the beginning of 2008.

    im getting a 360 for my birthday in sept. just in time for halo 3, which should be fun. then im getting a wii for galexy and brawl in nov. and then finally a ps3 for christmas for metal gear solid 4 when it comes out in early 2008 and little big planet when it comes out. also i want other games on all those consoles but those are the big ones i want.

    Someone just posted this on 360Chat, so I will post it here.

    Only 17% of the games are shooters.

    some shooters fall under the catagory of action/adventure. also pretty much the good games are the shooters on the 360. gears, halo, etc. etc.
