I was thinking about getting a 360 (and Halo 3 of course ) but I'm not sure if a 360 is all that good......what all can the system do? Any other good games for it?
(Btw, I probably won't play online, but with my friends)

Halo is all but a great game. Ok, it got a nice multiplayer....but games like F.E.A.R. and Gears of War are much more complete and fun. And the best game ever on 360 is Skate. End of the story.

If I get one, I plan on getting Halo 3, Fable 2, and possibly Skate

What about the system itself?Can it do anything like get on the internet, store music, ect.

Seriously!

And amen about Skate!

You really should do more research on the consoles. Much quicker than waiting for us to respond.

Anywho, assuming you get it, I hope you enjoy it. It has a great library of games. Feel free to check out gamespot's 360 forums. A lot of good topics discussed there.

the system is all about online play. but it does have the best game selection between the three. the PS3 has a built-in blue ray player, while you'll have to spend another $180 for HD with the 360.

but there's NO reason to get Halo 3 if you don't have Xbox Live. if anything, Orange Box would be a better purchase for offline play.

$50 gets you one year of unlimted play time, with exception to Final Fantasy 12 which charges you a monthly fee because they're an MMO.

Get a Premium (20GB). The Arcade is a fucking joke and the Elite is overkill for the average gamer.

Anyway, you definitely want to get Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3. Also, Assassin's Creed comes out Tuesday and Mass Effect comes out a week from then. In other words, pick up a 360 now and you will be one very happy person.

Yeah...

I just bought CoD, paid off my AC pre-order, and ordered the Limited Edition of Mass Effect online. Never before had I seen a pay check disappear so quickly. Damned November...

Unless you have a major zombie fetish *looks around for Smokey Amp* I found that Dead Rising tends to get really repetitive after a bit.

I just got live, a wireless adapter, the orange box and a headset. I still want COD:4 , Mario Galaxy, Assassins Creed, and Mass Effect all this month. I hate this November, it drains money so fast.

What I mean is, If I get a subscription in January, but stop playing for 3 months, does that time roll over, or is it gone?

I hate having to say this as this isnt the right thread but I must get it out. Gears of War's MP sucks dick compared to Halo 3.

You have 4 fucking gametypes.
Shitty shotgun in GoW.
Host advantage.
Shitty environments(nondestructable)
Very repetitive gameplay(shotgun, sniper, boom!headshot, etc)
Where the fuck is the party system?


I will stop there. But yes, buy a 360. Get H3, GoW(i dont actually hate it), The orange box, FEAR, and Bioshock.

Then send me a Friend Request.

EDIT: Buy CoD:4 as well.

its gone dude but i havent went a few days without playing. Live is all i do i have Halo3 GOW, COD 3, GRAW2, FEAR, RAINBOW 6 and all ive done is multiplayer on em. Im still playin halo2 cos it has the best multiplayer. Downloading demos for free is great, the menu system rules, graphics great with a huge lcd tv, but i spent 900 bucks on everything when essentially the gameplay is the same but microsoft always do that to screw you money wise. Even the wireless controllers are great, but again Microshaft make it tough to put in and out batterys forcing you to buy an expensive recharge kit.
