Yes, but wait until you see/play the games on HDTV. You'll wonder how you ever played them on SD.

You pretty much NEED an HDTV to get the full next-gen effect on the xbox360. There's no reason to buy it if you cant experience its graphics to the max.

The games still look great on SD, but you do really need a HDTV to get the full effect. That being said, it's still worth buying if you only have SDTV. Plenty of people own the system, and don't have a HDTV.

HDTVs are so damn cheap now. You can get a 32 inch LCD flat for like $500. Just look for deals online. You wont regret it if you own a 360.

I was going to buy the wii untill i plyed excite truck at gamestop and hated the wiimote for regular games. Then i figured out most games only use the wii mote. I cant mess with that. I might just add the HD-DVD drive this holiday season along with that Braxia.


Yeah that is what I'm trying to say. There aren't really any games like Zelda or Mario for it, unless there's something I don't know about(which is kind of why I made the topic). And then I don't like what I've heard about the Wii mote either.

Oblivion, Gears of War and Rainbow 6: Vegas are the 3 best games for Xbox 360 right now...NBA 2K7 or Madden aren't worth paying money for, they aren't that great.

My 360 scratched up my copy of 2k7 (there is a circular sratch that is a full 360 degrees around the middle) and now it won't work. Any advice?

Don't place your xbox vertically...it scratches CDs if you're not careful.

the lack of platformers is killing me, also i looked on ign release dates and nothing is coming out. But im going to try get into racing games. Im going to buy the racing wheel(never tried one) and get Forza 2 in JAnuary.

you prob moved you 360 while the gme was playing or somehow it was moved. There is a solution to it if you check 1 up but you have to manually install these little rubber things in your disc drive. What happened was the laser burned a circle around you game. The samew thing happened to my NB 2k6 and college hoops 2k6. It really sucks, i think that is worst thing about the 360.

Yeah, I got a good deal on 37" 1080P LCD TV last week. Playing Gears of War in 1080P is draw dropping.

1. There is no way to fix the CD. The laser burned the "circle of death" upon it

2. They was a link on 1up.com. Just search google

3. Microsoft will not give out replacementes because the manual says do not move while the system is on.

It sucks but you just have to suck up the 60 buck lost.

I knew that, but right now my bank acount is at zero and I've basicaly been living off my mom's money for the last 2 months. I just got a job and should have at least a thousand saved up by march. I've found a couple of great deals online, like this one http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Vizio...oductDetail.do
(they must have just changed the price because it was 1499 earlier).

I'll probably spend about $1200 on the tv and accessories once I have the money saved.
