Wow....I hit the motherload of XBox 360 gaming at Target....

I picked up at Target:

NBA Live 06
Call of Duty 2
Tony Hawk Wasteland (cause well, I need more 360 goodness!)
Another Wireless Controller
Play and Charge Kit

(they also had NBA 2k6 and NHL 2k6 there, but I passed on those, but I may get NHL 2k6 soon)

At Gamestop:
Project Gotham Racing 3
Madden 06

I'll have impressions up for as many of these as possible tonight. Best Buy and Circuit City will have a ton of games in tomorrow for sale.

Toys R Us and EB are still saying "no games are being sold until the release date of the system"   Whatever.  :roll:

Nope, I was hoping it would be in at Target, but no dice. I could have driven to another one....but it is snowing and crappy weather, so I just gave up and will get it tomorrow.

Here is one usable image I was able to get before my camera decided to not work so well...the bright light is the flash.

Oh I will write quite a long post on this puppy. It might not be up until tomorrow morning though at this point, since I've got to actually play these games for a bit before I write it....and I'm going on about 4 hours of sleep each night for the last 3 days. I'm a little tired.

Less posting.  More playing.  What kind of "I got four-and-a-half Xbox360s two months before anyone else" gamer are you?  :wink:

Heh, well Madden and PGR3 were already paid off awhile ago, so it was around $280 for all of it today.   Cool

Oh and PGR3, Kameo and PDZ are all $49.99.

I actually don't envy you too much, Hetz (though I''m very glad for you!)  - because Oblivion was what had me so hyped for the 360 launch.  I get excited, then depressed, but I'm sure I'll be more excited soon... maybe your impressions will help!  Tongue  

I'm hanging my hat on Kameo and Quake 4, for now - and trying to figure out XBox Live for the first time... it just won't be the same without Oblivion.crybaby

As for Quake 4 - I'll have a review asap.  I'm just waiting on the debug to get the time in Myto. smile

So is that what it will say if I am drunk and put PGR3 in my PS2?  I mean, what in the hell else would I be putting it in that would possible be capable of displaying that message?

A debug kit allows me to play preview code.  (as in, not the stuff you get in a box, but in fact a burned disc)  

I suppose you could use it to kill roaches....
