I thought about getting one until I heard about them burning 360's.

Nyko did say they will replace any 360's damaged:

Just don't stick the 360 in a small enclosed shelf, and it will be fine. We put ours on top of the entertainment center, so it gets plenty of air flow.

Remember, without any cords on the wireless controllers, it can sit over your TV (depending on how your entertainment center is set up) and you don't get a blocked view.

Gears of War, Oblivion, Hitman, F.E.A.R, Saints Row, Rainbow Six: Vegas, Ghost Recon...Marvel Ultimate Alliance is cool...Dead Rising was fun and so was Lego Star Wars...Far Cry wasn't bad either.

The LOTR game dude...get it for PC if you can. The 360 version...meh IMHO.

Fight Night, although good, I'd wait for the next version on 360.

This version of it has been out awhile so they should come with a newer one early next year and whatnot.

I've had one since I bought the system in March and its been fine, granted the first one was DOA, but I just returned it and got a new one and its been great.

The system is only slightly louder, BUT the system does run cooler.

It does what it says it will.

HOWEVER, that being said...IF the second one I got would'nt of worked, I would've just ran my system the way I bought it.

SO, its a judgement call.

You dont NEED it OR ELSE...But if you can get it, and it works, you will not regret it and your 360 will thank you for it if it could talk.

Fight Night is awesome. I played it on the regular xbox and had a blast playing against my friends. You get to talk so much ****.

My PERSONAL "top 5" for the 360 would be (In no particular order):

Fight Night Round 3
Dead Rising
Ghost Recon
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Test Drive Unlimited

This is just based on the games I have played, I'm assuming Gears of War would replace one of those games if I had played it, but I've yet to do so therefore I can't fairly evaluate it. Also, the new Tony Hawk game is pretty fun, Tony Hawk's Project 8

*EDIT* Crap, I forgot about Rainbow Six: Vegas, that game is awesome. Most of the games have demos on XBL Marketplace, so just take every game people have suggested in this thread and DL the demo, then decide from there instead of just taking out word for it, everyone has different tastes :up:

My top 5 games are:

1. GOW
2. PREY
3. COD2
4. Madden 07
5. Chromehounds (for the online play)

You should also grab the quick charge kit if you have not already.

Whats the difference between a Play and Charge kit and the quick charge kit

The quick charge kit is $29.99. It plugs into the wall and charges 1 battery in 2 hours and 2 batterys in four hours.

The play and charge kit is $19.99. It plugs into the 360 and doesn't charge as fast as the quick charge kit.

The quick charge kit is worth the $.

For $30 you can buy the Kodak 1 hour battery charger and it charges up to 4 double As in one hour. I have it for my digital cameras but it has come in handy with the 360 controllers too. Makes WAY more sense to pay $30 to charge 4 batteries in an hour than $30 to charge 2 batteries (or 1 360 "battery pack") in 2 hrs or 4 batteries (or 2 "battery packs") in 4 hours because you can also use it to charge the AAs for anything else, like digital cameras, TV remotes, etc etc. Plus withthe Kodak one you can switch between charging Ni-MH or Ni-CD batteries, and you can also charge triple As with it. The only "hassle" with it when using it to recharge the 360 packs are that you have to remove the batteries from the little pack instead of just clipping the pack into the base liek with the official 360 charger, but it takes all of 3 seconds to do, lol. The Kodak one comes with 4 batteries too :up:

Not trying to douse anyone's fire but I was deeply disappointed in Condemned.

My brother said the samething.

He said it was boring and slow.

Thats why I have waited for a deal to get it.

I'll reserve final judgement until I get a crack at it.

I enjoyed Condemned. Not great, but it was worth the rental. It scared the **** out of me a few times.
