    The Xbox 360 thread

    Does anyone else have one? As the games cost $100+ when brand new I don't have many games, but my favourite so far is Call of Duty.

    most looking forward to Ricky Ponting '07 and Halo 3.

    Spent a load of time playing Call of Duty 2 and 3 on one.

    Prefer Call of Duty 2 but 3 has so many hilarious moments purely because you can use vehicles in multiplayer.

    Terrible thread for a terrible console.

    Have one, about to send it off to microsoft, thanks to the dreaded three red lights. Also, if anyone has a 360, and hasn't played Dead Rising, you're missing out.

    I've been thinking of buying one for a while now actually and may do so shortly.

    Any things to watch out for? What's the story with your "dreaded three red lights" Dark Hunter?

    I have seen a few 3 red lights problem occur with machines, if only microsoft could solve the repair process which can takes a few weeks. Strange thing is if I sent in a xbox for repair it would go to Aus

    I'm not a hundred percent sure, but from what i've heard, the 3 red lights means there is a hardware problem with the console. Instead of the one green light in the top right corner, you get 3 red lights around the power button. Mainly happens with the First consoles that came out, so if you're going to buy one now, it should be fine. Luckily mine is still under warranty, so i don't have to pay for shipping costs or the repairs. Apart from that, it's worked fine, and was deffinitely worth buying.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Yea they're known as the lights of death or something. Means you've machine has a terminal hardware failure.

    It was on a modern technology type show here, they were happening a lot to people just after the 1 year warranty - meaning they had to fork out.

    What are some of the better XBox 360 games that are worth having?

    Anyone know of the best place to buy one in Sydney?

    Call of Duty is good.
    Lego Star Wars is sort of fun but gets fairly boring fairly quickly.
