There is no way in hell I would buy one of the Elites, even if my 360 goes belly up. It's a total ripoff.

Ruined!  PS-triple foreva'!

You know I was thinking about keeping my PS3 and saying to hell with MS anyway and selling my 360 before the next update decides to brick my system. Do you know if the Spring update includes the "brick every 40th system" code in it?

 I'm still on the fence about it though.  icon_confused

Fyi-I think you and Brendan  should go to neutral corners.  No need to make this personal

Bill Gates can kiss my balls before I'll pay $180 for a 120 GB hard drive.  I just bought a 320 GB hard drive for my PC for $80.  If it means I can't download HD movies, so be it.

Listen, I bought my 360 as a game machine.  Not a movie machine.  Not a multimedia machine.  A game machine.

I'm sure you guys know that probably the biggest driver is their desire to ramp up the marketplace movie downloads/tv downloads.

Well, as Penny Arcade pointed out, then perhaps they should have subsidized the new HDD so it wasn't so expensive with the idea of making it up on marketplace downloads in the long run.  As is, I'm loathe to buy the 120 Gig drive at almost $200.00 and sticking with the 20 Gig drive severely hampers my desire for much of the marketplace content. 

First of all agree completely, second I don't think there are enough people like gellar to think this is a wise move, and finally (Although I seem to be the only person that is still harping on this), if they really want to ramp up the marketplace for movie downloads, make it competitive with every other rental service out there. The fact that people are renting and downloading movies from them for 4 dollars a pop that sometimes take 24 hours to download and they they only have 24 hours to watch or they lose it is so insanely insulting to consumers that can get 2 DVDs out at a time for 10 bucks from blockbuster and watch 8 or so of them in a month for twice that cost and spend as long as they damn well choose to watch them is just mind-boggling. The fact that MS doesn't recognize this flaw is equally mystifying. I wish more people were as annoyed about it as I am, because frankly I WANT to download and watch HD movies. I want to do it now, but I won't do it the way they have it set up.


I think MS hands are tied on this, Calvin.  The deal they have with the Movies Houses probably have this insane stipulation.

Ok, got it home. Went to attach the blue, red, and green wire to the TV and noticed that the DVD-Sound system is using that slot. There is no other place to put these cables on the TV?

Do I need another cord?

might help if we could see the back of your tv, but most HD tv have several slots  to attach cables.

I just had a coworker walk by and ask me what the hell was so funny that I was laughing so hard.   icon_lol  I've read your MP stories before Lockdown but this one takes the cake!  Classically funny!  I will probably still be laughing later today.

If MP is fun like that than I may have to give this a try.  Unfortunately, I don't own any of the popular (Rainbow 6, Gears or GRAW) MP games except Battlestations Midway.

Until the price point drops on the PS3 it will always be the number 3 system for me with the Wii being the number 2.  Sad, cause I LOVED my PS2 dearly.

Oh, and it's the collectors edition.

Any takers? It goes tomorrow.


Purge I suggest you hold onto Gears of War.  It's a keeper, imo.  GRAW2 action will not die down anytime soon.  GRAW1 was stable in this community for quite awhile and if GRAW2 lives up to the hype then it should be on heavy rotation as well

Is Voltron the guy that had a belt that turned into that bird named Ravage?  I always liked the bird.

You are thinking of Soundwave, and it wasn't a belt, it was a tape, and it wasn't a bird, it was a cat.

Quote from: Lockdown on March 08, 2007, 01:41:09 PM

Well - I messed around with this for a bit last night.  Went through the tutorials then played 3 online games with Arkon, using Poncho's Boyz!

Total crack-up!  Poncho's Boyz won the best-of-3 match against Arkon's marines in what had to be the WORST game of Worms in the history of worms matches.  Arkon had never played Worms before... ever.  And I (and I'm being totally serious) did nearly as much damage to myself as I did to Arkon's worms.  I am monumentally bad at this game, but it is SO much fun.

At one point, a message came up on the screen, "Do not underestimate the power of Tito Santana!" - (one of my worms).  Way too funny.

After the match, I made a GT East and GT West team.  The East team consists of Devil, Arkon, Soulchilde, and Starshifter.  I need to go look on that map thingy we did a while ago to get the names for the West team, as I only have Ron and ROTC on it right now.  I will probably make a GT North team as well, which will have Purge on it.  I know quite a few people would probably like to stick a bazooka up his ass.   icon_biggrin

Love the game.
