  • Xbox 360 Pre-Launch Events

    I am going to see it in two hours from now 4pm MST, I already seen it yesterday and it does look pretty good, but that white controller has to go. The plastic is easy to get scuffed up. At least all the games will have 'Come & Join' online capabilities.

      lol, almost everybody I've talked to and every site I've been to has called the Xbox 360 controller one of the best controllers in history

      I'm camping out in front of Best Buy for 8 hours to get a 360

        I never understood why people camp out to buy consoles. In 5 months the price will come down and there will be many more games to buy.

        O well, whatever floats your boat.

          Likewise. I especially don't understand why people would pay money to just get a preorder (meaning a fee for "reserving" an item).

          I have zero interest in the Xbox 360 though, only the PS3. Ironic because I like my Xbox and I hate PS2s.

            The price will be $250.00 to $299.00 or less for the full package, it would likely that the core version will be faded out for full package unless they are thinking to addon a larger harddrive. I will wait till march/may 2006 to get my xbox 360.
            I will see what the PS3 has to offer in games, I did not like all the junkie games that came with PS/PS2.

            It goes for xbox as well

              I dont usually do this... why am I know? Because Xbox 360 is hard to find and the only way I'll be able to get one (outside of eBay) is to camp out and wait in line. Why must I have one now? Because I'm a hardcore gamer and one of my all-time favorite games is getting a prequel which I absolutely MUST have (Perfect Dark Zero). Perfect Dark alone is enough to get me hyped about Xbox 360, but thats just the start, then we have Xbox Live, which me and my friends are going to play nearly every day... there's also Elder Scrolls 4, Gears of War, Halo 3, all of which will be released within a year of the launch (with the exception of Halo 3, thats just a rumour atm).

              Do you understand now?

                I used to be the same way, but now I have to pay for my own toys. I don't mind waiting a few months if it means I'll be spending 1/3 - 1/2 less money for the same hardware.

                  I'm glad I don't have to do that since my BB is holding one for me launch day

                  I have the same view, but for me it's regarding ANY product, not consoles specifically. To be more precise, I'm referring to the dreaded day coming up - Black Friday (Day after Thanksgiving)
                  People wait in line usually starting 12am Thanksgiving night, and camp out for 7-8 hours. I don't care how good a deal is, there is no way I would do that, as my time is not worth the "savings"

                    Point a shotgun at the leader of the queue 2 minutes before opening - You'd be surprised how effective it is for queue-jumping

                      I have done the same thing for the past 3 or 4 consoles released, but I figure it'd be fun to hang out with my friends over night, giddy with excitement over a new product... if we end up getting it at midnight rather than camping overnight, they're all coming over my house and we're gonna have a LAN party

                      and I pay for my own toys as well... had to sell my Xbox and Gamecube over eBay to get enough money to buy the 360.

                        Didn't mean anything by it. Thanks to people like you I get to try out things before I buy them.

                            I'll probably wait until March to get an XBOX 360. Just got my XBOX last Yule and there is only one game included in the Launch Cycle that I want to play. Two or three other games look interesting but they won't come until later in the year.

                            Also none of the XBOX games that we own are on the backwards compatibility list. Can't believe they support Scooby Doo but not Lego Star Wars.

                              I'm going to be camping as well. I hope to get mine that day.... There are atleast 4 games I'm going to be purchasing at launch. Backwards compatibility? Who cares... that's why I have my old Xbox.
