Guilty of going of topic – XBOX 360


I am a very sad game-a-holic!  I’ve pretty much had every console and computer gaming device.  From ZX81 to Commodore 64 and Sinclair Spectrum through the Amiga to a PC.  I then had a Super-NES, Sega MegaDrive, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2 and XBOX!


I love XBOX – mainly for XBOX live – particularly the American Football games – I was #1 for sometime on NFL 2k4 but unfortunately lost that due to the fact I had a life, job and (understanding) wife.


The Xbox 360 is going to be amazing – I’ve been grabbing a few quick games in our Reading office where we have some. 


Even though I work for Microsoft we don’t get any deal on getting them cheaper/quicker 🙁 So I’m in the queue like everyone else – hoping it’ll arrive as near to launch as possible!!!


The great news is that it looks like many old games will be compatible : http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardcompatibilityqa.htm 


Plus the launch lineup looks awesome! http://www.microsoft.com/uk/press/content/presscentre/releases/2005/11/PR03544.asp 


All my favourites there – Madden, Fifa, Project Gotham – Christmas is going to be great!


The other thing that is really superb about XBOX 360 is the fact that you can use it as a media centre extender so I can stream TV, Video, Pictures and music from my Media Center in the lounge to my study!!!


Counting down the days…..

    Just so long as the DVD doesn’t have that high pitched squeal that I used to hear from my Brother-in-law’s XBOX, that put me off the original.
