OK, I've decided to take the plunge and get myself and get myself an Xbox 360 today. I'm also going to get the wireless adapter as on Amazon it's £14 cheaper then anywhere else and has only had good reviews, and since I'm getting a MadCatz stand with built-in cooling fans and battery charger I might as well get the adapter too (networking isn't my real interest in computing so I can't be bothered trying to hack into my router and set up a DMZ for my PC).
I've also found a place to get 13 months of Xbox Live for the same price as 12 months, so I'll do that as well (since my cousin told me if you sign up on PC first, like I've done, the 1 month free with the Xbox 360 isn't valid, as his friend found out the hard way). So, within the next few weeks expect me to be able to play online in Halo 3 and Halo Wars under the new gamertag of ThermalSoarer (currently fb424).UPDATE
OK, my Xbox 360 Elite is on the way and, I must say, it was very nice to see on the order both Halo 3 and Halo Wars listed at just £10 each!
Anyway, this summer I'm going to start playing around with XNA Game Studio
and hopefully I'll get a game on community games
for you all to try and hopefully, buy.
