Until Microsoft comes out with more Arcade titles, I don't see myself touching the 360 again, at least for the next couple of weeks.

Perhaps i'm just behind the video game times but i have never heard of lumines other than it was a tetris-like game. Is this correct? How would skins and music videos enter into it?

If it's like the PSP version, the videos should play behind the blocks as they drop and the skins alter the look of the falling blocks. It's a great game.

Flay doesn't really update that anymore...I just copied the old thread. Perhaps I'll just get rid of the release dates and review links...

Whats weird about that outpost deal, it may show up as 19.99 in your cart, but the 19.99 on the main page for the points still shows the 19.99 crossed out with the "sale price" button below it....

Boy am I retarded... I just found out over the weekend I could turn on my 360 remotely with my wireless controller by holding down the big green X button... Am I the last person to know this? Or did this happen in an update?

I think you are the last to know about it as it's been there since launch. Welcome to the club!

I figured it out the first day I got the machine (which was only 2 weeks go, but still).

Yeah, I'm waiting for the poker and Galaga Arcade games now. I'm too caught up in Guild Wars to have time for the XBox.

I imagine my 360's blog is not very happy about this.

BladeDVD's Xbox - 6/18/2006

I only have one request... If BladeDVD isn't going to game, the least he could do is turn me off so I don't feel the pain. But no... I was awake for six hours crying in my own head.
I love that site.

Rumor is actually 400 pts. I'm not a fan, but I think that would be a damn good price for it.

Yep. One of the announced features I was looking forward to before launch. You can also shut down the machine the same way.

I don't think I've ever touched the on/off on the console. I'll say it again, I love that button.

I don't think we'll see more than 3 new arcade games before September.

Xbox 360 Price Drop This Xmas
Submitted: 16 Hours ago By: Janx
Xbox 360 | News Article
News4Gamers.com | Read & Add Comments (70) | Link to this article

It looks like Microsoft is planning to crash Sony's PS3 launch party by dropping the price of the Xbox 360 this coming Christmas. A source close to Microsoft says consumers can expect a price drop of almost $100.

The source also revealed according to Britxbox.co.uk that the Xbox 360 hardware team are now busy redesigning the chips supplied by ATI and IBM to cut costs and allow a price drop to coincide with the release of Sony's Playstation 3.

If this holds true you will be able to buy an Xbox 360 for half the price of the PS3 this Xmas. This will certainly put Microsoft in a very lucrative position when the next-gen console war starts for real later this year.

Source: Britxbox.co.uk

If they can cut costs, then this would make a lot of sense. Though this probably wouldn't put a dent in the sales of PS3 to early adopters, it could hurt after the Christmas rush.

I'm definitely keeping my eye on any news relating to a price-drop. I don't think they need to and I wouldn't be surprised if these rumors are just production cost cuts that won't be passed on to the consumer until after the holiday season, but I can say it would certainly push me to join faster.
