    Okay so I was at IGN looking at Mass Effect and I have to say that I'm BLOWN away. I never knew a game could look so beautiful. The graphics are amazing and the gameplay looks fantastic. Not to mention the storyline is engrossing and the environments are so vast its crazy. When exactly is this game coming out and does it have MULTIPLAYER/Online? And what are people's opinions about this new Black 360 thats coming out? It looks really sweet and I'm thinking about saving some money to get it. But should I wait until I get an HDTV so I can fully enjoy the 360 and the Wii together? SO many questions...thank God I just got a job recently.

    So conclude I'm definitely a Microsoft supporter now and I plan on gettin a XBox 360, Mass Effect, Gears of War, and Halo 3 of course. Any other suggestions on games should get? ICON is only for the PS3 correct?

    hmm, ive been thinking about getting a 360 too. i've got 2 HDTV's in my house, but neither of them i can use at any given time, so i have to keep my gaming systems on my 27" tube TV in my room. not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but it only has 180i support. the only way i'd get a 360 is if i got to use of the HDTV's in my house to play it on, because the games on the 360 will look about the same as the games on my gamecube.

    the 360 is awesome.

    simple fact.

    you dont need an hdtv to enjoy it, but when you play a 360 on one you will love it.

    hdtvs are getting cheaper as as they are getting more and more popular, and in the long run most people are gonna end up with one anyway

    Dont get a XBOX 360 yet. Microsoft coming out with Xbox 360 Elite really soon, maybe April. It'll have better graphics and more hard drive space.

    Yeah I know all about it. Thats why I started the post. However besides te better graphics will it have an HD DVD drive? If it does then I'll definitely get it. I don't know if I'll need all the hard drive space though.

    Just wanted to make sure you didnt think it was just a Black 360. I dont think the word is out yet if the new Microsoft XBOX 360 Elite will have HDDVD already built in.

    I love my 360 but...I really can't think of any games coming up I need.

    Fable 2 of course...and Assassins Creed.

    I loathe Halo and am not a huge GTA fan so...

    I do love my 360 though [/hugs]

    Thanks man...just wanted to be sure you didn't think I was completely clueless..lol. But yeah it looks like a nice piece of equipment. The funny thing is how PS3 fanboys are already saying that its not going to do well. If the XBox 360 is already doing way better than them then shouldn't an improved version do even better? Esp if it has a DVD drive which I really hope it does. And to date what versions of the XBox 360 are there? Does it come in 20G and 60G versions like the PS3? I know theres Premium and Basic but are those broken down further?

    And oh for future games I know theres Mass Effect and Blue Dragon which looks really intriguing. I already know I'm getting Mass Effect. Just have to get the TV and the system. And for once a system will belong to me alone and not my brothers.

    Starting to drool....God I can't wait. And thanks so much for the information dude. Is connecting to the Internet hard with the 360? It was very simple with my Wii so I'm hoping its the same with Microsoft. I've got a Linksys Wireless Router at home. Model WRT54G.

    I have a 360 and I already sort of regret it.

    I stupidly thought RARE would still be good, Team Ninja would never go to the Ps3, and that Oblivion would never come to the PS3. I guess I was kind of next-gen hungry at the time as well. It also has turned out all of the new franchises coming to the 360 such as Crackdown, Full Auto, Kameo, and Lost Planet have turned out to be pretty meh titles, rather than the must-have games I thought they'd be.

    The Ps3 is looking better to me, but if it is good I'm going to not assume so much like I did with the 360 and wait it out a little.

    360 is cool and I'm not quite giving up on it, but it's seriously not my kind of system at this point in time. So be wise before you act on it.

    ThE PS3 looks like sh*t to me and I could care less that Oblvion is on it. Face it some games are multiplatform. And the games you mentioned are actually must haves according to A LOT of people. And I've done research on the games that I'm interested in. Sorry but sony's 2-3 games is nothing compared to the 10-12 I want/could get for the 360. Not to mention it has a great Online System.

    well all you need to do is either get an ethernet cabel and plug it in or get the wireless adapter(im saving up to get it) its pricey but worth it
    and the 360 elite may have wi-fi.

    AAA! you have 666 post!
    DEVIL!!!

    OMFG! I just realized that! Quickly posting a reply. Does the 360 do wireless connections like the Wii?

    I'm just saying you shouldn't buy all the Wi60 hype, make sure you get the system for you. Each system has something for each gamer, they're all at different stages and have their own flavours.

    If you're so sure of the 360 more power to you. As for me I'm going to PsWii60 or PsWii, if the 360 doesn't come out with some games I like.

    The elite will NOTcome with a bundled or internal hd dvd player. It will NOThave better graphics either. The only differences are that its black,has a hdmi port, and a 120gb hard drive. It has also been said that the elite may also run quieter and cooler. But its not a totally different machine. Ive had my 360 since launch and am happy with it, just wish I had the option for black back then....

    Just read that (HD DVD thing) on Joystiq....if it doesn't have better graphics then chances are I won't get it. Although the Black and Green looks damn sexy. So hell I might still get it just for the nice color upgrade and the hard drive.

    It looks like the whole purpose of the elite is to push Microsofts version of Apple t.v. That would explain the bigger hd issue. Given the fact they have already said that they wont ever bundle the dvd drive with any system makes one think that they are banking on downloading HD content as being the future.
