1) I couldn't save up enough in time and now supplies are so limited they're selling it for like $600 here.

Is it backward compatible, like PS2 is with PS1 games? And should you bother with 360 if you don't have a Hi-def TV?

i think it is for like only 5 games, halo and halo 2 being one of them. i think i would have known more had i expected to get one but as soon as i relized that it would cost 400 i knew my chances were low

I love it, the graphics are amazing and the controllers are allot better. It is supposedly backwards compatible with over 200 titles if you have the upgraded version with the hard drive. You don not need an HDTV to play it but not having one would be like eating a steak with dental dams.
I bought Madden, NBA 2k6 and Need for Speed. Im a little disappointed in Madden. First off the graphics are amazing and the game play is a lot better then the past two versions. But they cut out allot of shit, things like the all time and Super Bowl champions teams, alternate uniforms, practice and training camp modes and there is this annoying hiccup in the game where is pauses for a split second right before a big play like a sack or a big reception. Also when you break the huddle in past games you could hit the A button and the players would run up to the line of scrimmage, now the just appear there so essentially you could pick a play and be on the line of scrimmage with 40 seconds left on the play clock. Im not bashing the game but over all it plays like a first gen, next gen console game (If that makes sense).
As for NBA 2k6 this game is amazing, the graphics the game play, the presentation, EVERYTHING!! What really burns my ass is this is the same company that made ESPN 2k5 until ****ing EA bought up the rights. I could just imagine how great their version of a football game would have been.
I was able to get a 360 only because I actually used my head and put a deposit on it in May. Now I see people paying $3,000 for one on EBAY. Any shithead that pays that much should be ****ing lynched!! It is doing a major disservice to future console buyers because now the manufactures see these dumb mother****ers paying that much for there product so they will increase the price big time and still be able to sell them.
One more note, I just left an EB after picking up Call of duty 2 and I heard them tell a customer who tried to walk in and buy one that the next shipment, which is due sometime around Christmas, is for the reserves that didnt get one yesterday and walk up sales wouldnt be available until March or April.

That makes me want to stay with regular Xbox. Madden is a flawed game to start with and they didn't need to make it worse.

I don't think they made it worse they just are learining the capabilities of the new system as are the other developers. There are a bunch of other games that really take advantage of the new hardware like Call of Duty and need for speed.

I got mine by paying bits at a time since preordering mine back in may and I'm starting off with Madden and COD 2. both r gorgeous but COD 2 is probably one of the most fun games I've played in a while especially when I tried X-Box Live for the first time and with one other person played capture the flag against 4 people and finished with the game being tied and a 3-1 kills in my favor. I'm definitely dissapointed in some of the stuff they took out of Madden but with what this one has, I can't wait to see what they can put out with a full year to work with on a non-beta system. I'm really looking forward to Full Auto, Gears of War, Blue Dragon, Ninety Nine Nights, and Elder Scrolls. As far as how crazy it is about these things, my boss and I have already been cussed and fussed at from people not able to get one. I've heard about a couple on ebay reaching as high as 6,000+ which just goes to show how stupid some people r and how greedy others r. But then again, tis the season and all.

It's a game console. Eventually the price will drop and then I might pick one up...maybe next summer. Until then I'll just have to be satisfied with having a life.
