WHOO HOO! After 14 long days basically... my 360 has come home from Microsoft!
As you know, I basically got a unexpected 360 for basically free... (150$ the guy wanted to help him buy a PS3... and that was right after I just got 160$ from trading in some old games..)
However... I played with it only for a few days before I sent it to MS.. Why? Well it wouldnt connect to XBL. =( All tests passed etc. Just failed there.
So had to wait. They sent me a box for free and would fix/refurb me for free. Since I was surprised.. I had a launch 360 from 11-2005! Like WOOT!
Anyways.. since yesterday was giddy till UPS showed up just now. =D Hooked it up and XBL etc works! YESSSS (Now I can kick you boys in GoW!)
Anyways... whats the bonus? Well MS seems to have been nice... they sent me back a Sept-2006 model back! Manuals, ANNNNNDDD.... a FREE Wireless controller! XD
That means I have 2 wireless and 1 wired now. YESSSS!!!
Then EB from Dec 1-3rd had a 25% employee discount going... after hunting with the stores in our area.. I found it... The Microsoft brand VGA cable for 360 (Used) why is used a big deal? EB/Gamestop has the USED Components or VGA cables for 9.99$ Now then... add Edge card and employee % and that was 35% off... came out to 7$ for a like new VGA cable (Its 40$ brand new)
So I have the optical cable hooked into my Z5500, VGA mode on. (Which Im hoping gives me 1080 but I know Ill least get 780p from the VGA)
Lets see... the games I own are:
Gears of War limited edition
Final Fantasy XI (Of course)
Demo discs with alot of games
Sneak King (Burger King, had to get it)
and soon... Ill own (Not just checkout) DoAX2
God.. im gonna have fun tonight, Since I learned the free halo headset from the orig xbox will work on the 360 too... thats good.
NEXT I own that Smack Talker unit.. which allows me to record 5 items from a line in source to have at ready.. meaning im gonna inject 5 items into my games online... Halo 2 or GoW with Counter Strike bits and of course.. the Mario Theme. =DDD
God im giddy... so im gonna shut up and go try my stuff out... Made this post before playing anything lol. Wonder who I will see online soon now.. Ill update my sig soon probably.
If you DO see me online and play... dont be alarmed if others in the house are using my system too heh.. stupid XBL... only are allowed to make one paid account. =( (After all.. would YOU pay for more accounts?)
