Best Buy's you do.

Microsoft updated the warranty to a year. The only point in a store-bought one is that you don't have to mail it in.

Make sure you get GRAW 2.  That game is one of the funnest games I have ever played with a group of buddies.  Maybe even get Halo 2?  You should be able to get it for $30, if not $20.

i would get the Play and Charge Kit, it comes with the cord and a rechargable battery pack; i love mine! also, make sure to get an xbox live subscription for the gold membership.

as far as a game goes, i don't really know. there's a lot of good games out. call of duty 3 is great but it's $60. possibly TMNT - i hear it's great.

here's a gears of water bundle for $489.99 and it looks like it comes with most things you want.

I already have a PS3, but I'm thinking about getting a 360 sometime soon (the 20 gig one, I'm not getting the elite). I have more than enough money to get one, but I'm not going to waste the rest on games or anything like that. Don't worry Sony Fanboys, I'm still loyal to Sony and still will enjoy Sony, I will not replace my PS3.
 
I want to know what accesories I should get with my 360. I also want to know which game I should get as a second game that costs less than $50.
 
So far I have:
 
20 gig premium 360- $400
xbox live live market points- $20
Gears of war- $60
 
 


You don't have to explain your loyalty to anything

Anyhow, like other have mentioned, try to get a warranty.  If I were you I'd look for Gear second hand. I can't recommend that game at full price unless you're a real online nut. The campaign is about 7 and a half hours long depending on how good you are.

I'm not going to be playing more than 6-8 hours a week, I'll give it good vetilation, I will cover it up with a t shirt or rag (like I do with my PS3 and it is mostly dust free), and I take good care of my stuff. Why would I need to waste extra cash on it?


Most 360s will eventually break, whether you take good care of it or not. I've seen tons of posts on Xbox.com "nooo 3 red lights" next post "take better care of it" person who created topic replies "i did it had good ventilation and everything". most 360s will eventually get 3 red lights whether you take good care of it or not. 2 of the 4 360s ive had broke out of the box.


I should make this a macro.

Of COURSE you will see lots of posts saying how people's 360s have broken. With over 10 million 360s out there, of COURSE some will break. But look at it this way. Do you expect someone to make a post, saying how GOOD there 360 is working? Do you expect to see a topic "My 360 didn't break today!". So when you look at it like that, people saying their 360 has broken means nothing.

Don't get a gold membership for live. Stick with silver and get Phantasy Star Universe. I would of probably done that, but about a week before I started playing PSU, I had renewed my subscritption.

In my opinion, don't get another boring Ubisoft tactical shooter. Maybe Oblivion, you may have tried that already though. I'm not sure what to recommend you. What the hell, I guess a cheap thirty dollar FPS, COD2. If all else fails, download the PSU open beta and join me.
