So I need some help for the xmas console?

I'm buying my boyfriend an Xbox 360 for crimbo...

I think I may get him Fable 2 also...

Anyone know of anymore good games for the Xbox 360? He likes racing games and the Fable games and I Moto GP and beat-em-ups.

I don't know what fucking games are good for the 360. I may just give him a voucher so he can buy some games himself but like....

I would rather buy him some games to play on crimbo day if you know what I mean so any help on that kind of man shit would be greatly apreciated. (or a word like that spelling maybe?)

but if you do choose to get him xbox360 instead of ps3, which is a horrible idea. You should buy him "Assassins Creed" Kameo.. or something like that... I dont kno of much games but damnit, assassins creed is awesome to me, though it does get repetitive.

From what I know, getm Halo 3 (every guy loves it, except me). Assassin's Creed is only for people who know already how to have fun. Fallout 3 is supposed to be a really good RPG. Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion is supposed to be a really good RPG too.

Hush, daddy is about to speak.

When you buy him a xbox 360, which is the better choice over the PS3 (ignore Zelos' idiotic rantings) go to gamestation.

At the moment, for £189.99 you can get him a Xbox 360 with 60GB Hard Drive with both Gears of War and Gears of War 2 arguably the best games on 360. For an extra tenner you can get a second wireless controller, fallout 3 or some other games. The bundle deals at that store change every now and again, but seriously, thats the best place to go. The Gears of War deal should stay for a little while.

The games you want -

Gears of War (bad ass shoot-em-up)
Gears of War 2 (badder asser shoot-em-up-er-er sequel)
Fable II (awesome RPG)
GRID (racing game)
Project Gotham Racing 4 (racing game, quite cheap now, still awesome)
Grand Theft Auto 4 (of course)
Call of Duty - World at war (WWII game, also known as COD 5)

You DON'T want assassin's creed, or kameo. Fallout 3 is a crock of shit. Oblivion is rediculously in-depth and anal, some people think too much so. Halo 3 isn't really worth getting since there are much better shooters out there, like COD and GOW.

When you buy it, spend £15 extra on a 'Play and charge kit' which save buying batteries ever again and make sure you get a second controller. I'd also look into the accidental damage warranties. for the same price as one pad, you can get infinite pad replacements should you break em for 3 years, as well as your console being covered for all kinds of accidental 'knock off the table or spill pot noodle on it' type damage. Also covers other warranty type things should the console fuck up.

A memory card is also a good investment.

If you can find a second hand xbox 360 HD-DVD drive in store, they'll probably be about £20 and really worth getting. They sell HD-DVDs for about £3.99 at the moment, and some titles you can get on HD-DVD are still £20 on blu-ray. It also comes with the uber awesome remote control, which is worth £20-£25 on its own. Git em while they're there.

Any other questions?

Jesus! I was gonna get one from Game for like... £135?

It comes with Fable 2 and a controller...

I wanted to buy a couple of extra games with it which I now have a fair idea on what to buy.

But how much would some of the extra stuff cost? I mean, what should I get for crimbo extra with it and what can wait till the new year?

That one from game at that price wouldnt have a hard drive with it. That'd be the arcade pack. It's just the console, and a memory card. If you want to do the downloading of the demos, movies, loads of savegames, having the full new updated 'xbox live experience' and suchlike, you'll need the one with the hard drive. They cost alot on their own anyway so it's a good idea to spend the little extra now, rather than twice the amount extra later.

There are three types of xbox 360.

The xbox 360 Arcade - This has no hard drive, just comes with a controller and a memory card.

The xbox 360 60GB - sometimes called the premium still or simply the xbox 360 - it has a 60gb hard drive and a controller

The xbox 360 Elite - special black console, comes with a 120GB hard drive, hdmi cable and controller.

The base price for the arcade is £129.99, the premium £169.99 and the elite £229.99

Arm yourself with this information, and you'll be sorted.

I'm also sending you a PM.

Manifesto - I don't think WL was commenting on the game, she was commenting on the fact that people who haven't played the game are making judgements about it.

I was the one that said it was a crock of shit.

Haha! I love you, Tozz.

And yeah, Halo 3 will just piss him off. If you'd like to try and avoid lots of shouting at the tv and at the retards that play on Live, no Halo 3.
