Of the current-gen systems, it's the only one I'm really interested in. But should I really pay $200 for one? The first games I would get would be The Force Unleashed and Dead Rising.

I'm going to get one with Halo 3 so a buddy and I can play online, get really good, and then win like 250,000 at a professional gaming circuit. Him already being really good makes this easier.

I guess it depends on how much of a budget you're on. I got my 360 as a gift, so I can't really say if the price as a whole is worth it. Dead Rising is indeed an awesome game, and I also recommend checking out Crackdown and Beautiful Katamari, and maybe Gears of War. That's what I've liked out of the games I've played. Though considering that's like, 4 games (plus Braid on XBLA) that I've enjoyed over the year I've owned the system, that's probably a disappointment. What games are you interested in on the 360 aside from Dead Rising and The Force Unleashed?

The two Gears Of War games are a win. I've wanted to get Beautiful Katamari for a while but I'm nearly broke.

I'd eventually get Gears of War, Halo 3, Assassin's Creed, and Ninja Gaiden 2. That's pretty much all I know about right now.

My brother has a 360... so I think with my next paycheck I'm going to get The Force Unleashed or Dead Rising to test it out and see if I really want one.

I've heard that Force Rising is shit house. Go with Dead Rising first.

He probably had Dead Rising on his mind when he typed that Tongue

And he's obviously forgotten that I have a Star Wars tattoo and a message board that is related to Star Wars in name.

Haha yeah my mind was wondering ahead when I typed that message. I love Star Wars as well but then again the zero punctuation review labelled it as shit and Yahtzee hates most games and points out every flaw with a rare mention of anything good.

He was reviewing the Wii version though. I haven't played any version since I'm not into Star Wars, but it would be worth reading reviews of the 360 version just to be sure.

True, I forgot that he reviewed the Wii version. He did say that the other consoles versions are better by comparison.

Yahtzee rocks, but is right when he's talking about it for either system. I played demos at the Mall on both the 360 and my friend played the demo on the PS3 while I watched at the mall and let me tell you, Yahtzee didn't say it enough that you will almost never hit the melee button. The entire time you just run around hitting force moves, it's basically like playing Forge on Halo 3, grabbing a radio antenna or a tank and ramming it hard in everyone. I also did the little duel mode, and while it does try to be epic, it really is nothing too special and worst off, the camera changes angles at the most inappropriate times.

I find the game to be quite broken, but if it's something you really want and are a big fan of anything star wars, you may enjoy it. It was fun throwing batteries at battalions of troopers but it really wasn't worth it after a while (and when I watched my friend do it, it looks so ****ing boring, so it holds no ground interesting viewers).

I prefer Jedi Academy to tell the truth, and the KOTOR (still need to play KOTOR2).

It's the best console but those games aren't exactly a system seller. You also don't have broadband so that means stuff...

Do you plan on getting XBL? If not try to find some good sinle-player games you'll enjoy. But really most the fun of the 360 comes from XBL.
