I was wondering if anyone from the community has a Xbox360 and is online. I recently got one mainly for my kids but I do enjoy sport games like Madden on console. A lot of my buds around here are console nooberts so I figures Id get online with them. So far I have Madden 08, Fightnight, and NHL 08. Im really loving the NHL08 and Im not really a Hockey fan. The fact that THQ is coming out with a UFC title this winter was the main thing that sold me. My neighbor is letting us try out Halo 3 but FPS for me the PC is the only platform. Sport games really do play better on console and the graphics very good. Im running it in 1080 on my Vizo HD Widescreen.

Im not trying to sell anyone on console because the PC rules but if anyone out there is online and would like to mix it up in some Madden or NHL or Fightnight add me to your friends list. My name is HaVoK308

I hate you.... My son has an Xbox 360 (best "carrot" and or "stick" ever bought) and he keeps buggin' me night and day to let him "hook up" to the net and play people "online". I ain't havin' none of it. Now here you are puttin' ideas in his/my brain. Shame on you... LOL. No I have it and it's hooked up in HiDef but I can't have that kind of "crack" around the kid would lose it.

**** menu, Static gameplay, seems like remap of 07.
Its as if they didint spend hardly any time on the PC version, seems as though they just put it in a box and then on the shelves. Still playable though.

I've got Halo 3 downstairs. And it will remain there until my birthday next week.

Strange thing with mine...I got the three red lights about a week after buying it. Figured..."oh ****...here we go with the 3 year warranty". So I tried it again and it worked fine. Noticed any of that?

Yes. Mine would work for a few hours before freezing. That time got shorter and shorter until it went to nothing.

The 1st, 3rd and 4th player lights were on. but the 2nd was not.

Also, the three red lights mean lots of things. Something in the back may not have been plugged in all the way.

I spent a few hours playing campaign in coop mode with some local buds and I hate to admit but I really enjoyed it. But like I said Im not trying to convince anyone to run out and buy an Xobx360 or anything. I just wondered if anyone from the community had one as was online and if we had the same games. I much rather play against friends or people I know then some 14 year old who knows all the ends and outs and like to talk smack to me because he shut down my run game...lol.

When it comes to FPS titles in my opinion they are meant to be played on PC. And I prefer the ones that lean towards realism which is just to find in a console title. But I did that coop campaign mode with some local buds and I really enjoyed it as much as I hate to admit it...lol. Gears of War is always pretty cool and I read in PC Gamer that they have a version coming to PC and it might be cross platform so that would be something to keep an eye on. Maybe Im just spoiled with the mouse and keyboard because it pwns the controller when it comes to shooters.

Its a bit of a pain to store but worth it. You can also get an adaptor by m$ so it and any other controller will work with the PC. So if your into GTR2 or rFactor it will work with that as well.

I've had a 360 for a while now, I generally play racing games like PGR3, Forza 2 etc but also enjoy the sports games like FIFA, NHL, Madden etc. When I bought my original Xbox I thought FPS games were definately best played on a Pc but now I'm not so sure as I seem to have bought more and more FPS games on the Xbox 360.

Why? well games like Battlefield 2 showed this to me as I owned every version of the Battlefield series and got tired of the poor hit detection the bunny hopping, the porpoising and the script kiddies making movement unrealistic. You should not be able to turn on a dime or go from running, jumping to ducking across the floor in one swift movement but you can on the PC version thanks to the mouse and keys setup. Battlefield 2 on the Xbox 360 is slower paced because players can't game the game with silly fast movement so when they break cover they make sure they can make it which has a more realistic effect on gameplay. The other side of the coin is its harder to hack a console game so you don't get the script kiddies hacking apart files or using some uber control script. FPS gaming on the 360 is more of a level playing field. Sure I get annoyed when some guy kills me and keeps killing me in Halo 3 but its because he's a better player and I need to practice not because he's cheating.

I still play some FPS games on the PC like Day of Defeat and Team Fortress 2 and of course I keep my PC for racing and flight sims but I spend a lot more time on my 360 than I used to. Less hassle to setup, no worries about upgrading - I know the software I buy will run smoothly because the developers ran it on the same machine as I did when they made it.

Microsoft, gotta give em credit on this one. They provided the box with prepaid shipping and had his beloved back to him in about 10 days. I was impressed. Didn't cost us a dime either.

Ya I will give MS some props for their customer service. I used it two times with Precision 2's and honestly I was just trying to get an extra one for me and one for my neighbor. They ask little questions took my serial and said they would have a new one on the way. It arrived inside a week and didnt cost me anything. So at least they got some good things going on.

S!
