The 1/Only Xbox 360 Misc. Topics Thread...

Will this be possible once it launches at a place like Hollywood Video or Blockbuster?

Oh yeah, have any other topics that don't fit in the other 1/Only threads? Put them here.

Probably, but maybe not for a while after launch if they are in short supply.

BTW, did this really warrant its own thread with the numerous different 360 threads we already have?

I'm surprised it wasn't called "1/Only Xbox 360 System Renting Thread".

No longer an official discussion thread... so yeah, it deserved its own thread.

Fair point.

I wondered why you didn't just make a new 1 and only discussion thread instead of the 3 or 4 seperate threads. Or maybe reorganize and keep the getting one day one thread and then have a discussion thread capture everything else (merge the others together), and keep flay's excellent info thread stickied.

Then everything has a place, and clutter is kept to a minimum. But you're the mod so your call.

Well I tried to make those crazy 1/Only threads to encompass certain topics, thus not 1 thread on 720p another on HD cables another one whatever, those types can all go in the technical thread, the same with other threads/topics. I'm not sure which topic this would go into. Actually I have an idea...

I'm glad the original thread got shut down. I got tired of getting an email notification every three minutes for crap like, "aaah, it's been 5 minutes since i last posted that i didn't get the best buy preorder email and i still haven't gotten the best buy preorder email. i hate best buy and myself!!"

I agree, it was impossible to follow discussions on there. I think this is a good compromise.

Can anyone who has the system post the dimensions of the Xbox 360 box and approximate weight?

If I'm not going to have XBOX Live is there any other reason to need the hard drive?

Well.. I would think that you would need to be logged into live but I never tested it myself on the xbox before.

I saw tons of accessories when I went to BB during lunch. A bunch of Madden '06 was on a cart waiting to be placed. Didn't see any other games, but I didn't look too closely.

eBay and the XBOX 360

People paying $900-$1400 for the non-core system?!?! Gimme a break, are people that desperate to get it NOW as opposed to a couple weeks from now?

Sigh, only in America

Smash my xbox!

Link
The Plan
From the creators of SmashMyiPod.com, we bring you, SmashMyXbox.com!
After we collect $430 in donations, we will take that money to a local unspecified retailer, which opens at 12am on the launch date. We will purchase the Xbox 360, and destroy it in front of the other Xbox fanboys who are already waiting in line. We will try to be at the very front of the line. The whole thing will be shot on film, and displayed on this site. This is only a social experiment, for the entertainment of the donors, and visitors of this site. For more info, read the faq.
Video documentary to be released tomorrow.
