PGR3, baby!!!

That goddamn game has me all hyped-up. I like the :"just one more try...oh, is it 3:00 A.M. already?" quality of the series.

The other games don't appeal too much to me. So I guess I'll hold out for a bit.

I'll probably end up getting PD0. Working at K-Mart means a 10% discount on everything so $40 off the system and $5 off the game, which basically equals the price of the game.

Bought Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo tonight. I got the Collector's Edition of Perfect Dark Zero, which came in a cool metal case and has an extra DVD that I might watch later tonight. It also had a 10 page comic book and some weird hologram card. I haven't decided if it was worth the extra $8 I paid for it or not. I suppose it depends on what's on this DVD.

Yeah, the whole packaging with games is beyond stupid. They should be happy that I'm shelling out $400 alone. I don't need to shell out $500 for 2 games I don't even want.

That's without any games. Just the Hard Drive, wireless controller, Console, Remote, and compnent HD cables. Games are 70 dollars a pop.

There's the conversion rates from USD, but still, it makes me angry. I was thinking about getting one in the new year, but I don't think so, not until the price drops.

The bundles suck. I had a bundle for the original Xbox and it was cool cause I actually got to choose the titles I want but here they control what you get even when a game like Oblivion or DOA is pushed back they replace it without your permission.

Friend of mine picked up PD0, and Condemned. Both look quite interesting. It was neat reading the instructions and seeing which guns are either still in PD0, or are there in an ancestral form (The falcon, instead of the falcon 2 for instance). From the looks of it, melee (both hand to hand and a knife or two) will be quite useable, which I like a lot.

It sounds like it is similar in some ways to the original, but the controls look to be closer to Halo-esque than Time Splitters esque. Also worth mentioning is that they didn't add jump (though you can roll).

When I have money to blow I'll pick one up, but I don't. So maybe by the time the PS3 is out I'll get one.

Personally, if the revolution has good 3rd party support I'd rather pick that up.

BTW, for some reason, the PD0 collector's edition extra disc will only play in the 360, you just get a sort of error screen if you play it in a normal DVD player.

Does it being a DVD9 media disc have any effect?

If I were to get a 360, I'd get PD0 -- it's the only thing out there that really interests me, and actually the only game I know for the xbox 360 that I want, and that is coming out (besides Halo 3 of course)

Oh I'd also buy one to use XBL again, as my Xbox is modded and I can't play on live :(

ANybody know if CounterStrike is supported for xbox 360? Sorry I'm too lazy to check the list, just checking if somebody knows off the top of their heads.
