    Well I'm seriously thinking of getting a 360. I have a Wii and im content with it and it's still my favorite, but it seems not many great games are coming out. Right now I'm thinking about getting a 360, but I only got 700 bucks. The Pro 360 will run me 400, a game will be 60, 12 month xbox live will be 50, maybe another controller..50. That's already 560 add tax about 600. Then I can buy one more game, I want one of my games to be Oblivion for sure. I do have Gamefly and I can mix up games that I rent between Wii and 360, but I'm worried I won't have any $ for Wii games. Do you guys think it'll be worth it?

    Also, what great games are there? I know Gears of War, Oblivion, and maybe GRAW, but what else?

    One more question: I only have a wired router, can I connect the 360 to it with an ethernet cable?

    If you plan on getting a lot of downloads from Xbox Live, I suggest the Premium pack. It comes with a 20GB Hard drive, which will cost you $100 alone, so add that with the Core pack and you get $400. I would just get Oblivion and try a bunch of games from GameFly. You can also buy a Wired Controller (which I strongly suggest, unless you plan on having your 360 far away from your seat) for $30. As for games, you might wanna try Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth 2 if you like LOTR and RTSs (I think that's what they're called). Yes, you can still hook up your 360 to your router. So, all I can say is this:

    If you want memory, get Premium
    Try games from GameFly (Suggesting LOTR: BFME2)
    If you wanna get another controller, get a wired one
    Yes you can hook it up to your router

    I was thinking about getting a 360 but i thought really hard and long, games over here cost $120 EACH! and the premium pack costs $650 and pro $850 so i thought and thought and did some more for atleast 1 month before release, and ended up getting a thumpster (small motor bike) for $1000 instead!

    I'd get Lost Planet, or Crackdown as the second game. There is an oblivion expansion coming out, and it'll cost a lot of microsoft points. So I'd consider picking up about 5000 points for the expansion, and all of the plug-ins out for Oblivion.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about Lost Planet and Crackdown...Saints Row is also cool if you like GTA.

    Thanks a lot everyone! I've pretty much made up my mind. Tomorrow I'm gonna spend all my money on:
    Xbox Pro 400
    Controller 50
    Gears Of War 60
    Oblivion 60
    12 Month Xbox Live 50
    =620
    Add tax I figure about 670. Hope it's money well spent!

    Wireless controllers are a bit overrated... Unless you're really far away from your Xbox when you're sitting down, you're better off with a wired controller. You get a Wireless with your Xbox anyway. But, oh well, that's just my two cents.

    glad we could help =]
    your getting 2 controllers? you dont have any real good multiplayer games yet, gears if okay on co-op but is a very short game, i suggest holding that off for now
    if your getting the 12 month card its really 13 months, itll say 12+1 months!
    p.s. itll be the best money youve ever spent on video games, no doubt about it
    i think the complete opposite, i think next gen is about wireless, i dont like wires (they always tnagle themselves no matter how many times i wrap them around the controller) sure theyre not like omg the megaton, but i did get the $400 model, which came with a wireless, and im very ERR about having everything match and what not, so i bought another wireless =]

    WII60 FTW! Hey thanks a lot guys I did buy it yesterday, and I LOVE it. Getting owned on Gears Of War online though :p One thing though, one of my controllers right analog stick squeeks like a *****, it's so annoying I disconnected it. My dad says it's just cuz it's new and it won't do it in a few days. Anyone have this prob before?

    Then don't bother coming in this forum... If you hate Microsoft, why look in the section about their console? Leave the fanboyism at the door.
