    I haven't switched on my 360 since the update. I'm too occupied with Saints Row 3 on PS3 right now. I still need to finish Forza 4, and play DoDonPachi.
     
    MilkyWay says thanks.

    I need to get Forza 4, i played Forza 3 for a long time till i "burnt out" and never touched it again.

    I dont play 360 much, only for PES 2012 really at the moment. Mostly i will get the PC version of a game, going to get Saints Row on PC too at some point.

    Forza 4 is great, looks ungodly beatuful, and feels different to Forza 3.

    I only have my 360 for 360 exclusives, mostly. Also so I can chose between which game is better on which system. Just Cause 2 looks better on the 360 for example so i got it for it. Ended up getting it for PC, too, tough, for five bucks. And on PC its a whole different league.


    Ah Kinect, on my mind, too... But I first want to try out Move for PS3. I'd like playing shooters with a gun in my hand.

    Good thing is the Kinect is getting a development kit and release for PC. The new Kinect is better because it works in tighter spaces. So your Kinect might get some use on the PC!
    If the price keeps dropping i would get one.

    Move support is garbage at the moment.

    i'm content with no motion controls at the moment. I like the new dash, advertisements feel less intrusive.

    The adverts are less intrusive but there are more of them, the designers worked hard to perfect that lol.

    Jumped the Kinect bandwagon. Kinect + Kinect Adventures for 140 bucks. Also bought some Wintergames compilation thingy and Move Sports Adrenalin or something. Basically I've been base jumping, kite surfing, freeclimbing and mountain biking for the past hour. Works quite well and is fun. Also if you take a 10 pound weight handlebar in your hands while trying to steer your avatar down a mountain bike trail, its quite the workout lol. Lower the handle bar, move it with not enough force or speed, and you crash. Nice motivation to work out more.

    Multiplayer will be tried tonight when my gf gets here. There isn't a Kinect Kamasutra per chance is there?

    wonder if anybody with RROD experience can help me?

    Bought an xbox for £20 - its symptoms were rrod and dvd drive would not open.

    the cog had come loose in the drive so that was an easy fix.
    for rrod got some screws and washers, thermal paste etc...swopped xclamps out...started it up and 3 red rings, left for 2 mins then switched it off. switched it back on and hey presto it was working.

    I left it on played Perfect Dark Zero for a bit then switched it off. came back after 15mins and when i switched it on it rro'd again. but I turned it off and back on and it was fine. Moved onto updating the dashboard and connecting to xbox live.

    Now on the new dashboard, a cold boot gives me 3 red rings but it launches fine and I can play! but there will be 3 lights flashing at me. until i switch it off and back on.

    any ideas?!

    Never heard of the 3 lights flashing but still being able to play, maybe you could disconnect the LEDs so it doesn't do anything? I mean it still works right?

    Im still on my Falcon 60gb.
