My parents offered to get me the 360 for christmas. My problem is if it is worth it to get it. I have a regular 20 inch TV. Is 360 worth getting with a regular TV? Also i heard someone talking about getting some special cables that make it better? What is that and does it work for regular TVs too?

in a word, yes.

as for the cables, i'm not sure you can get it to look any better unless you have an HDTV

I can't recommend the 360 enough. It's worth getting just for Xbox Live Arcade.

As for the difference between HD & standard TV, I can't answer that. It looks amazing in HD.

I have one on my 19inch standard tv, and I think the graphics are still way better than regular xbox.

I love my 360... there's pleanty of nay-sayers out there. Most of them don't/can't own a 360. It's a gamer's dream.

Alright thanks everyone, i guess ill get it for Xmas, it was either the 360 or some various items such as the Wade marquette jersey i've wanted forever. Only thing i hate is i have like 10 PS2 games and now i have to pay 60$ for just 1 360 game, I have to buy a whole new collection. I was enjoying PS2 games actually becoming cheaper like 2k7 being 30$. Also i just bought NHL Hitz 02, NHL Hitz pro, and NHL 2005 on ebay for a total for 16$ including shipping, u can't get deals like that for 360 games

Trade them in at Gamestop (you won't get full value, but doing that bought me a couple 360 games) or sell them on eBay.

You won't be disappointed in the 360.

Of course you can't do that with 360 games. PS2 has been out for like 5 years, and 360 one. Once 2009/2010 hits, you'll be able to get 360 games for that prices too. And 360 does have some collection titles already, and even COD2 was on sale for $30 this week.

Well i mean obviously i know that, i was just saying. But i didn't know COD was on sale, i love that game. Do all games start of at 60$? and is there any evidence that they might start out at 50$? then ps3 comes out?

Most games I've seen that are new releases start at $60, and there is no sign of lowering the price on new releases. Just buy stuff used if you can, that's what I do. Saves you like $15, even on the newer games.

Gamefly is always a good option too.

first party games like PDZ and PGR3 are $50(though you can get better deals for those games by now)

if you have an lcd monitor you could buy the 360 vga cables and run it that way, it will give you hd quality picture, and just hook it into some computer speakers

Hmmm speifically Mor since i know you have it, u always talk about like DLing games and being able to play them, is that only because you had a modified 360?

The only games I download for 360 are demos on Live Marketplace. Rexbox and PS2 games I can download and run. I'm not brave enough to mod my 360 yet.

But both my PS2 and Xbox have large hard drives in them to do my evil bidding.
