Does anyone know if this is just for USA Wmarts?
I work part time in the UK Store ASDA which is owned by wm .
Im at work tom night hopefully we will have one in
Omfg. lol. gotta goto walmart today :)
Since nobody seems to care about that other thread I guess I'll continue here. I opened up the display case again and found the faceplate was easy to remove (I was afraid of breaking it before). I also got the hdd off. I had thought the gray bump on the top of the 360 was a cover for a hdd bay, but turns out that's the hard drive itself. I was really tempted to pocket it (prolly coulda' got away with it-the only other employee there who knows enough about it hadn't seen it yet and probably would've assumed it was the core edition) but I restrained myself and put it back. Whoever set it up (MS rep, I guess--I work nights so I wasn't there) didn't set up the video right. It was running 480p in fullscreen so that video demos were getting stretched. After I fixed that the graphics were much more impressive.
That's all that I observed last night. Oh, and that... what was it, Ghost Recon? looks really good, but it was only a video. I didn't bother with sports titles, but of the rest the only playable ones were Kameo (just so-so) King Kong, and Call of Duty (looks like xbox graphics but with higher res textures).

dont feel bad. i live in america and i'm still not close to a wal-martOriginally Posted by 1003K
This thread got stickied? The only real info was KoN saying it's there and me telling about the demos and stuff (most of which is in another, more informative thread that got locked inexplicably). All anyone is saying is "I don't have a Wal-Mart" or "I'm going to check it out/have checked it out." Isn't this the news forum? The only news is KoN saying "Go to Wal-Mart" after I had already made a much more detailed post elsewhere eleven hours earlier.

'Cause see, a ho f*cks everybody... And a b[COLOR=Black]i[/COLOR]tch f*cks everybody but you.
Um... cool. Thanks Seph. Here I thought you were a bad guy after killing Aeris. Anyway, sorry if I came off as pissing and moaning. It's just that my main pc is an xbox and it takes a lot of time to type with an xpad, so when I got kinda' ignored after what I thought was a nice contribution... well I was a little frustrated. Again, sorry.
By way of apology, I'll change my avatar to honor you... oh wait... don't have to change it, I guess.

I played a demo of Kameo at the local Wal-Mart and I must say I was not that impressed with the leap in graphics...that is to say, it did not seem like a "NEXT GENERATION" system.
And you sign up to say that? O..k... There were a couple of places where the HDTV's were set to 480i so jaggies would be noticeable, some havent bothered setting them to HD resolutionOriginally Posted by kaniption
Ours was up for a day before I bothered ejecting the disc and messing with menus. Not only was it 480p, but it was set at fullscreen so the image was getting stretched. I set it to 720p. Does anyone know if that's the correct resolution for that tv? There was also an option for 1080i (but I'm sure just about everyone knew that). The graphics made a significant leap, particularly noticable on Kameo... or maybe that was just 'cuz it's the only one I've really been paying attention to. Still, I have to agree that the graphics aren't quite as good as I was expecting, but you gotta' remember that this is a launch title. Not only that, it's a game that's spent most of its development cycle being develoted for xbox, not the 360. Give it about six months and we'll start seeing better graphics, though, to be honest I'm one of the people holding out for ps3. I just came here because I'd seen, touched, messed with the 360 and I thought I'd comment a little.
ONE of my walmarts actually did have the System there, But sadly they said it was messing up the Cameras in the store. BUT my Friend did lick the controller so that nobody would touch it, he almost knocked some poor defensless little kid into the cd rack to have a grab at the surprisingly very small xbox360 controller. It felt very sexy and i could reach with my left thumb, all the way to the "X" button on the other side. we were gonna go back and see if it was working, but our IHOP food made us sick so we called it a day.
I happened to go to the local wally world here and they didn't have one. I don't like that store though. I boycott that place, ever since they fired me for going on vacation with my family. Stupid lesbian store manager. Also I don't like the fact that too many old ugly people shop there. While I worked there I was hoping to see maybe a few hot chicks but all I get is the old fat ladies and young mothers with winey babies...
Now I'm glad I got my office job. Now the only customers I deal with are on the phone and through e-mail, so I can make faces at them while I talk to them. :Jump:

Woot :) I just went to my local Walmart and they had it :)
I had the chance to play Kameo and I must say..it is a very good game :) Just too excited..only had 5 minutes there Need more!!
Upon observation of the system, it seems as though you are able to download content onto your Memory Stick via the Kiosk. I noticed that under the hardware-faceplates/customize (forgot name) section that it allowed you to download something to your memory stick, but I'm unsure what that is (faceplate designs?..) I'm thinking it is a way to customize your interface (dash)..I think I already read about this though, bad memory :P

Do you know who I am?
Whats the deal, they have a 360 at my wal mart but they say its a prototype,
has the xbox360 design not been finalized? I find that hard to believe that they could take pre-orders on an un-finalized design???
Is the Wal mart here just run by misinformed people, or does it say prototype by the xbox360 at all locations??
I didnt actually go and check this out, but this is what my friend claimed and, I Immediately thought it was b.s. but Im not sure.
LOL What are u serious . It cant be cause there done there making them and getting ready to ship them to retailers all over the U.S. There for sure the final product.Originally Posted by kimbokasteniv
Maybe its a prototype for the wal mart...i dunno. Maybe your friend is just bsing
ok I just checked it, it doesn't say prototype... atleast not anymore but I doubt it ever did, so I'm going go over to my friends place, and I'm going to brick his psp and possibly throw it at him, just cause he is such a da, lol.
Yes, the interface is changeable...but don't expect anything neat, possibly a few color changed variations and a few game themes, but otherwise it won't be anything drastic...Originally Posted by FrozenIpaq
I'm not all that much into the 360 so I haven't been keeping up on the news, but I was a bit surprised when I was walking through my small Oklahoma town WalMart to see one sitting in the case with a new flat screen monitor above it. My first impression? Games are meant to be played in HD... no question about it. Great graphics can only go so far in SD, and I think Nintendo is making a huge mistake with the NR not being HD compatible.
Having not spent much time with an Xbox, I found the controller a bit bulky and clumsy. Kameo seemed like an interesting game - beautiful to say the least. The hair on the Yeti like creature was amazing, reminded me alot of the CGI work done in Monsters Inc. I'll definitely be spending some more time checking it out. :)
