Yay, missus went in town and picked up a 360 full system and a handful of games (H3, Sonic, Arcade pack).

BUT, it's "for the kids for xmas", and she's going to be wrapping it when she gets home from work tonight @ 11.30(ish) and the kids don't settle in bed till gone 8.

Giving me a whole 3 hours to play (allowing for fiddling around setting up). THREE hours, until xmas day :(

Bum. :(

I don't think I'd even bother opening it.

You might have enough time to finish Halo 3 though. :p

Microsoft have made a dodgy console, however the built quality of all the other stuff (bar possibly the free headsets) is second to none. The original Xbox is probably the best built console ever made.

I hope you meant the hardware side, we all know how ropey Windows is.

Don't know if there's a 'knock the big guy' thing going on with suggesting Wondows is dodgy (I mean that in general not specific to you Johnz0r), but considering everything that can be done on the platform, I've never had any major problems with it.

Yes I meant hardware builds, however I do think Windows 'flakiness' is over-exagerrated, I've had full retails of XP and Vista and I could count system crashes on one hand and that's in over 5 years.

Hmm, so far, what a pile of kak.

How the hell do you control anything with those bloody controller pod things! Can you plug a kb&m into these?

Halo 3? hah, it needs an update to play the game. And as it's not online ....

Should have bought, umm, anything, just not this thing.

There is a vid on youtube from a german show where they tried to destroy the gamecube, xbox and ps2, th cube won, it was in pieces and still booted up.

I saw that, but it was the Xbox that won IIRC, not the cube. The PS2 died first time, Cube second the Xbox just keps on going.

Well, it's not 'kak', it's actually a top piece of kit with brilliant games.
You can plug a mouse and keyboard into it if you want, not that it will work though. Well... the keyboard will, to type messages, but the controller is more than capable of playing any game on that console brilliantly well.
