You guys should have got a PS3

(Sorry, I just couldn't help myself) LOL

In fact, since you guys have both got power PC's, why did you go for X360? 99% of X360 games are on (or coming to) PC's.

To me the X360 makes sense for people who don't PC game, (or low spec). Whereas the PS3 gives a "more different experience" for PC'ers. JMO

actually good job on getting that edition

it has the new falcon mother board in it which means it has the 65nm processor in it which means it runs much cooler ...WHICH MEANS less likely for the "over heating issue" people get


welcome to the 360 family ;) :rockout:

yes its confirmed on the xbox fourms (i'll get a link when i find it)

the red dots are to connect the wireless controller...being it has differnt frequencies (so you dont bump uglies with other frequencies) that button has to be pressed on the xbox as well as the controller (after powering both on) to make them find each other ...this only has to happen one time and than it permanently finds your xbox...you can even just use the center button on the controller to start up your xbox 360 !

That's how you sink the wireless controllers with the xbox 360, it has issues sometimes with connection.

And I lucked out when I was at Walmart this Afternoon getting my tires chsanged today And while inside waiting for them to be done I lucked out and saw 2 (thats right 2 and not just 1) Halo 3 consoles behind the game case window for sale. I knew what I had to do and I immediately rushed to my car in the Wal Mart garage and pulled out my 2 job checks for the last 2 weeks (I had been saving them up for just such an occassion) and cashed them as fast as possible not caring that there was a 3 dollar charge per check when cashing it at Wal Mart:laugh::laugh:

Can you beleive that they still offered me a 2 year standard warranty for the thing:laugh::laugh::laugh:

Also what was lame is that I had to carry the box out to the parking lot without a bag for the thing (can you beleive it they didnt have any big enough bags to offer me to carry this thing out with) all the way to a restaurant nearby where my mom was at eating with clients since my car was still in the garage. I was so scared I was gonna get mugged in the parking lot looking for the Mclartys Deli? lol i got there safe and sound though.

um mine never had a "issue with connecting" lmao...its used so if you want to connect your friends controllers to your xbox they have to assign it to yours...via that little button on the controller (which would be white or black depending on the controller) and the red button on your 360

http://www.xbox360forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=48845

the guy took his shits apart and confirms the motherboard reads falcon fluke or not..why would he lie?

this guy in the fourm is a modder of xbox 360s he confirms he has the new benq driver (which is way quieter) and the falcon motherboard in his unit like i said its based off his word right now..but on other forums i read about the new premiums and such having the falcon boards in them and elites as of mid august -september the only way to realy find out which board you have is to open it up
