Get the HD AV pack (the Monster one is too expensive).

I'd suggest looking at ebay for the cables, I'm sure there's people selling used sets.

Here is some for sale.

As to getting your Xbox dashboard to show in HD, hold down both triggers and push the left and right thumbsticks in.

If it messes up the display do it again to toggle back. I would suggest doing this AFTER you have HDTV kit hooked up, and then go into setup and turn on 720p / 1080i and 16:9 widescreen settings.

Amped 2 is a 720p game, so are most of the Tony Hawks. List of HDTV games

I thought Killzone got plenty of attention.

It was just mostly negative because they billed it as a Halo killer, which I think most people agree, it was not.

hrmmm, do they also set their televisions up in the shower? Location is VERY important. Most products come with instructions; "Manual" isn't just a charming book about a young spanish boy.

The powerbrick doesn't have to be fastened to one of the blades on a windmill; it DOES however need breathing room, just like a quality amplifier, computer power supply, or even some satt/cable PVR boxes.

Here's the acid test....

first make sure your xbox dashboard is properly set up (480p 720p and 1080i enabled, with the 16:9 screen)


Then load Amped2 and fly down the hill. (it's 720p).

it should look awesome.

Quote from: "JLu"
How exactly will consumers be able to enjoy HD DVD movies when the major studios are primarily supporting Blu Ray?  (If I recall, two of the six are supporting both, but isn't it sort of already obvious that Blu Ray won this battle before it really started?)

If Blu Ray I'd seriously consider this add on.  HD DVD?  Eh.


There's actually been some swing towards HD DVD in the past month or so; it's looking like Sony's "this is our product" campaign is falling apart with stuff like facts and reality coming into play.

::shrug:: I'll pick up the dominant one; there's no guarantee that I'll buy blu-ray movies just because I (may) have a PS3.

The MGS4 demo, though, totally looked accomplishable (is that a word?, imo.  And there's a 9-minute video out there where a few members of the team play around with the demo, all in real-time.  Changing the lighting...camera angles...that all but makes me believe we'll be seeing a game that looks just like the trailer we saw when it hits.  Whenever that'll be.


So we get 15 minutes of gameplay and 9 hours of cut scenes this time out, right?

I felt that way in high school and through my first year of college...

Not sure exactly what changed --  [...] All I would say is an echo -- if what you are doing isn't working for you, try something different.  Things absolutely can improve, but they won't necessarily without some sort of change.


I know what changed... you found the intarweb, and pr0n, right? Right? <nudge, nudge> slywink

I get into funked out moods. As the bible states: This too shall pass. Not that I'm biblical or even remotely religious, but given that the book has been around for over a thousand years and is still widely revered, I'd have to say that it's safe to take it's advice. It has not yet passed, even if the accuracy in details and contexts of it's many stories have.

I found that trying something completely different changed my mood. It wakes up the brain to do something you don't normally do. Cycle to school, take up an art class even though you can't draw, etc.

Smile even though you don't feel like smiling. It worked for me.

HINTS THAT NO ONE ASKED FOR:

MINIDASH FUNTIME!
Hitting the X360 logo to get the mini-dash (half-screen on the left)is where you can find stuff that you can't find anywhere else...
  • if you select your gamertag you can actually go onto live and CHANGE it.I'm lookin' at YOU, Knightshade... slywink get your ULTIMA-te tag back you deserter... Tongue
  • This half-screen comes up even when you're on the FULL dashboard. Use it to your advantage.
  • You can also start your custom music from that panel, and it will replace any music ingame as well.
  • Note that the volume of the music is also controlled from there.
  • You can invite online gamers into private chat while still enjoying single OR multiplayer games and still be able to chat in multiplayer.


KEEP YER CHANNEL, PRIVATE!!
The chat channels in the Live mini-dash are awesome. Use em, it makes the games you play so much more fun. Lockdown and I wasted an afternoon together just shootin' the shit. Too bad you can't have more than 1 friend per channel.
  • The live Mini-dash gives you 4 private (1 on 1) chat channels PLUS the games own multiplayer channel. (so you can bounce between in-game chat and your own live private chats)
  • You could invite someone you're playing with (in the multiplayer game)into a secure channel to discuss strategy, or just shoot the shit without having to air your dirty laundry.
  • Or you could chat with mytocles whilst she plays Zuma's revenge and you are downloading demos. Whatever.
  • When people switch to and from your established private channels, it lets you know. It also lets them know when you're AFC(away from channel). I made that up. You like? I *knew* you would. biggrin
  • Whenever a Live indicator is up (such as "Devil is paging you" or "Purge Joined your Private Chat", if you hit the X360 logo button while the indicator is up it will take you back to that channel.
  • You can hit it afterwards (if you were too slow) to get into the mini-dash and bounce over there manually.
  • from the mini-dash you can see the state of all your channels and who is in them.


WIRELESS INSANITY
Some tips for the wireless controller folks.
  • If you need to synch a controller, there is a tiny white button near the play-n-charge connector on the top. Hit that and the controller will try to re-synch to the xbox360.
  • I'm hoping you all have noticed the quadrant style light; it corresponds to screens you pull up. So you know which of your 3 jerk friends keeps holding up the damned game so they can change the music.
  • In case you hadn't noticed, if you hold down the X360 logo on your controller, you can either turn off the console, or just turn your controller off.
  • If you need to charge your controller but don't want your system on (using the plug and play kit), press the power button once (gently) on the console while it is on.
  • If the controller needs a charge and is connected with the kit at the time, the system will power off but the controller will still charge (you can tell with the light on the cable kit).
  • Do NOT show your girlfriend the wireless controller with the vibration. 'nuff said. (or do, you dirty, dirty person, you... :twisted: )


One other thing... If you have an HDTV, be sure to throw the switch on the cable that connects to the xbox360 from TV to HDTV. slywink See? Now it doesn't look like ass.  biggrin

I don't think a Bethesda game has the kind of clout that MS would need to push units anyway.  Such a thing might work on, say, Halo, but I hardly think anyone is buying a 360 just to get their paws on Oblivion.

I'd imagine you guys knew that well before you decided to share it with the rest of the world.

I don't mind that games are delayed but I do mind when massive delays happen at the last minute.


What difference does it make?


If a game is delayed due to marketing, or closed-door exclusivity deals you can have delays NOT related to the fact that it's not done.

Cripes... this thread should be abolished. I feel like a charletan.

I originally bought it for a local friend of mine; but since he's got a 6week old he figured he couldn't really use it until end of january anyways (which I think is a hopeful statement; having a son I know it took longer than that for me). He told me to make my christmas merry and to make money on it by ebaying it. I talked to MSDuncan, as he was my "First" request for one and he absolved me of any bad feelings about ebaying it.
So I did ebay the damned thing, and some UK buyer was buying it to replentish stock, so I closed out.  The UK woman wanted to buy it, and complained about shipping and was acting funny (wanted shipping to new york, and then florida, and then some UK address) and it didn't sell for all that much more either and I said "screw it, I know people who want it more. "

MSDuncan had already gotten one, and when I originally started this thread I talked with AA, so he was next on the list.

I christmas-wrapped it in hopes that it would get there before christmas. It technically DID get there, but it arrived on the 24th and no one was at the place of work to sign for it (I should have sent it to AA's house; he would have had it under the tree).

I appreciate everyone's kind words, and I love all of you for it. smile I'm no saint though; I'm just glad I could bring a real smile to the face of a digital friend. smile

and yeah, I'm blushing at all the kind words.   :oops:

It's peoples money. Money is not an item; it's a potential value. Hetz was lucky, Stimpy had opportunity and msduncan has had little of either.

Sad thing is, greed is a motivator.

I have just picked up a second Xbox360 premium today, and I'm trying to decide on whether to sell it to a CG'er (this one was picked up for a local friend who then refused it) or if I should ebay it and try to recoup some financial loss for my original 360.

It's a tough decision, one I've not fully decided on yet. frown I didn't think I could be greedy, but clearly the dark side is calling me. :evil:
