Update: Well... after talking to MS some for help getting on XBL.. I asked a question on if my unit I bought still had a warrenty... well low and behold, after he asked my my mfg date. I told him its 11-14-2005! He laughed and well, told me of something I heard in the news... and to my luck, applies to me, I have one of the orig launch xbox 360s! The ones MS has offered a recall on and FREE shipping and refurbishment! WOOT! Granted... can take up to 2 weeks to get one back... but I mean I thought about it... but what if something happens AFTER Dec 34th (Which is when the recall expires and if I break down.. im screwed..) So I choose to do that, waiting for the box now. Once I get it back, I have a 90 day warrenty, PLUS I will pay 40$ for a 2 year extended warrenty. Good enough for me, Ill have to suck it up.. but once I have it back.. I will be secure. Sad.. wanted to play on XBL least once.. but meh.. =/ Least I got lucky from buying a system basically free in the end.. and getting it refurbed for free. Plus new warrenty on my name.. all without a receipt just because its a 1st line model they recalled lol.
Hey all, its true... I hate xbox really due to lack of games I like cept a couple.. never would I pay 400 for a XB360...
Well today.. I traded in junk games and had 160$.. a guy who wanted to sell his system for a PS3... gave me his for 150$ its like OMGZ!
So I need advice. Im about to play it for the 1st time, Bought the HD, VGA cable, 99 Nights, FFXI for it along with the "Pelican" Cooling stand fan.
I Barrowed from the store DoAX2 and Gears of war. If I get on tonight... Ill kick someones butt! =D
Now then, the guy believes this is one of the 1st gen models... question is, did MS patch the firmware patch exploit? Or did I need a mod chip to do that?
Someone fill me in here.. this is a whole new world to me. >.< I never expected to have a 360 this soon...
Now I have Wii on Sunday and Xb360 tonight. ARG..
Anyways, whats this Silver membership vs gold? (Took a 1 month gold for free too hehe)
What should I do in tips for the system? What items to get?
Is it better to run it vertical or horizontal?
God just confused, giddy and cant wait to jump in, but same time I wish to be smart and get advice from the hardcore xbox people... since Ill be honest, I hate xbox.. limited games I want cept for a few.. but now that I have it.. god..
How does the Media Center link up? Since my laptop is MCE XP.
Plug and Charge adapters? God.. Ill shutup now.. you guys fill me in and if this all works and not busted in any form.. you can count on me to check Gears of War out tonight or tm. =)
