    Hello there I have a number of questions regarding the 360 as I am wanting to purchase one
    First of to buyers in the Uk what is the best place to buy one
    what store does a good price or should I go to ebay?
    And
    What accessories if any should I get with it
    And last of all the best 3 games to start with

    Note I am hoping to get the premium

    If you give it until a couple weeks into August, the price looks like it may be dropping $50. And it may just be more than a rumor this time.

    the PAL elite is being released (supposedly) on the 27th august for £330 iirc.

    hopefully, retailers will drop the price of the premium down by a few quid.

    best bet would be to look on gamestations website and see what "bundle"
    deals they are doing....i remember at christmas they were offering the best
    highstreet price, 5 games (2 mandatory titles and 3 of your choice), 2 wifi
    controllers all for £349.
    hopefully, they'll do a cheaper bundle to move the premiums and core's off
    the shelves.

    My vote =
    1. Get it off eBay, it's cheaper nonetheless of course.
    2. Accessories - another wireless controller for a friend and a wireless headset (my wired one screwed up in a few weeks)
    3. Errrrm.. Gears of War, Virtua Tennis 3's good... erm not sure what else 'cause dunno what you like. But loadsa games are coming out soon, such as GTA in October, Halo 3 in... can't remember, but yeah :) woop

    Just make sure wherever you buy it you get your 3 year warranty...just to be on the safe side.

    That sucks..

    Ah well the game really isn't on my must have list.

    Other useful accessories etc..

    - Xbox 360 Live 12 Month Gold Account (remember you're allowed up to three free gold accounts once you sign up for xbox live so you don't have to purchase this right away)
    - Xbox 360 Cooling Station? May be a useful buy.

    Sports Games:

    NHL 08
    Fifa 08
    Madden 08

    But it doesn't use WiFi. I probably wouldn't have posted that, but I was really tired and a little stoned when I did.....

    You can have five free one month trials unless they change it.

    From what I recall I was only allowed to make three one month trial accounts. However this could be due to the fact that I live in Canada.

    i would get another controller in case some friends come over and you want to play. if you are going to connect to the internet wirelessly, get a wireless network adapter. if you are going to connect wired, you might want to order a longer ethernet cable if your computer is far from your 360. for games, i would get oblivion elder scrolls, gears of war, and two worlds, which comes out august 31 in europe.

    For accessories you will want a Wifi adapter unless you have a wired ethernet port close by. Also be sure to give the machine air to breathe - they don't like to be cramped up and will complain with the RROD (Red Rings Of Death).

    Forza Motorsport 2 is a great game in HD. I am big on golf games, so Tiger Woods 07 is on my wish list (I have 06 now).

    Also Halo 3 which has already been mentioned is just about a month away, so grab Halo 2 and get in practice :D
