    having already a PS2 and an XBox in the house, I'm in no hurry to replace either . . . what killed me with the 360 was lack of backward compatibility with other XBox games . . . I don't need another console sitting around, and fancy schmancy graphics alone arent enough to make me switch

    hell, I come from the days of pong, space invaders, and asteroids!

    if the PS3 is backward compatible, then that will be the one we replace first

    if you get the harddrive option in the 360 it is compatable with most of the older titles. there are however some that will not be compatable. there is a list of those titles somewhere, possibly on the xbox site. but i am with you bluz, ideally i would put the 360 on my big screen in the living room and relegate the older xbox to the 'den' if you could play older games on the new system... that HD upgrade is only in the $399 or whatever bundle

    the key is to wait. in like 6 months the price will have dropped a significant bit.

    maybe ... MAYBE... when the PS 3 hits microsoft might offer a price drop then but I would not hold your breath. now there could end up being some nice game bundles with the system to make it more enticing... i'd be all over the Project Gotham 3 game coming with it for instance...

    It may now be compatible. That was a list from early november. My friend has 360 and he has a few xbox games that arent on that list that work. such as battlefront 2 for star wars

    my cousin had an x-box when he stayed here for about a month. i played it non-stop (halo) nice thing about it was i saw him sticking one of his cd's in the drive and copy the music on to his x-box. im not too impressed with the x-box 360 though i heard something about there being 2 versions of it, one haveing i think a bigger hard drive or something and being pretty expensive and the other without it but some of the games would require the hard drive not quite sure if i heard correctly or not. im waiting for the ps3 which i read is backwards compatible, not only playing ps3 games but ps2 and ps1 as well. really nice if you dont have a ps2 :coolsmiley:

    There is a "Core" System Xbox 360 which is $299 and a "Premium" System Xbox 360 which is $399.

    The "Core" has no extra hard drive. It comes with one wired controller.

    The "Premium" has an extra 20GB Hard drive ($99 alone) and one wireless controller. It also comes with a mic for Xbox Live ( $29.99 alone )

    The hard drive is required to play about half the games on the list i provided earlier. You need to save the compatibilty from Xbox Live on the Hard Drive. Its like downloading a patch or Update to the 360. Some games require no update or patch.


    Xbox Live is also made easier for the Premium. You save your settings and preferences on the Xbox so the hard drive gives you room for that plus updates plus game saves and custom music playlists.

    Hope that helped! O0

    Well....if you follow the pattern of Xbox than you may have to wait about 1.5 years for a $100 price drop.

    But hopefully it wont follow that.

    im starting to see used 360s at GameStop now and advertised used ones on craigslist. most of the craigslist ones are pretty much at cost of the new with a game or two thrown in... ive been tempted a few times... but am still 360 less

    meanwhile, TOCA Race Car Driver 3 is awesome. also playing alot of the remixed Midnight Club DUB. pretty much finished Burnout Revenge.

    Hey Spunky,

    and others into 'flight sims'.....

    was on Google Earth and noticed 'flight sim' under 'tools'.

    never messed with one before but it was cool.
    not that i knew what i was doing.....
    plus, no joy-stick, just the keyboard.

    can you point me in the right direction to look into this further?

    thanks!

    Vic,

    I've tried that too but cannot seem to get the controllers to work. Always a lame effort with the keyboard.
