    I managed to get enough money for XBOX360 and one game! [​IMG]
    Can't wait to pick one up (HDMI Premium, yay) at my local store on Monday. Which game should I get - BioShock, Gears of War or R6 - Vegas? [​IMG]

    R6 Vegas is by far my most played game. The online matches are great.
    If you're not doing online multiplayer, pick up Gears.
    Also, if you've got a store that sells used games, the older Xbox games are cheap and not too damn shabby. I'm enjoying the hell out of Half Life 2 right now, and picked it up for a song.

    Yeah, but I have HL2 on my PC. Intend to get the XBOX version of Double Agent though (played the PC version only, I hear it's just as good, though ... and it has co-op!).

    What about The Orange Box? Also you have to get gears really for on and offline. RB6 is a great game but imo gears is what you want to see on your 360 first (assuming you haven't played it) and BS is a 1-2 time play, no MP.

    Be forewarned, not all of the original Xbox games are compatible.
    I was so disappointed that DOA Boing Boing Beach Volleyball Party was not compatible. [​IMG]

    According to XBOX.com and some other websites, I should be okay with Double Agent. I really want BioShock, but I have a feeling I'll get through it too quickly. Maybe I should buy R6 and Double Agent now and BioShock + Orange Box in October. Aarrrgh, decisions, decisions ...

    I would loooooooooooooooooooooooove a 360, to play KOTOR, Halo, Doom 3, Half-Life 2, Fable, Gears, Halo 3, Assasin's Creed and some random shooters.

    mthrnite do you know if those XB games work on the 360?

    That was so inappropriate. I'm a Sony and Nintendo fan but your post makes me angry.

    Edit: well not really a fanboy, just a fan.

    Yep, they all work. Check the Backwards Compatibility List for the random shooters.

    I love the Katamari series, but why should he bother buying a 'last-gen' game with graphics that are below the Wii's standards when he just bought an XBox360? [​IMG]

    well
    gears of war is great and all, but the 360 has entirely too many FPS

    just wait for assassin's creed [​IMG]

    I've been playing the demo, and looooooving it! Agreed, a must buy!
    Me and my sons played the original PS2 one for an hour at least yesterday.

    Gears is to 360 like what Zelda is like to Wii (IN MY OPINION(Puts up flame shield))

    So, your first purchase should be Gears.

    Meanwhile, pirate R6 for PC and play that until you get the 360 version.
