re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

You have to mouseover the orange parts to see how many hours it thinks you played. The full bar is your time + community time, which is a meaningless stat. It makes absolutely no sense to display the data the way that it does. If they're going to display community time also, it should be a separate bar alongside the orange bar. Adding the two together makes no sense.

That being said, the number of hours it says when I mouseover the orange is still too high.

Okay, I was thinking they were missing a decimal point because that would be closer to correct. i.e. 250 is actually 25hours.

Which seems more realistic when you rollover the orange like Jeremy said.

I still don't know what Community Time means. It's not the aggregate total of all people playing that game, it's not the community average. No idea what it actually is.

Average of people who played the game during the six-month period, I would guess.

System update coming tomorrow (July 19th) with no user features added. Prep for upcoming changes later this year.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

So it comes with Kinect Adventures and the new Star Wars game. So it's effectively the cost of the 250GB Kinect Special Edition plus the Star Wars game but with an upgraded hard drive and all the extra goodies. I wonder if the X-3PO controller has the new D-pad or not.

I can already feel how I'm talking myself into buying it.

It sure looks like it.

The upcoming Gears bundle includes two of the new controllers. I would imagine that all of the bundles from now on will include the new one.

I'm not an Star Wars fan and want that console. Too "bad" that I'm going to preorder the Gears of War console.

I guess Xbox will continue to be the best selling console for a long time.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Man, that is so sweet. There's no way on earth that I need it and I'd rather be shot than buy a second Kinect, but the "Want" sensor in my brain is tingling really, really strongly right now.

Speaking of new 360s, I just had to send in my New-in-April model for the second time. It still constantly desyncs from wireless controls and you can't talk over XBL unless you're standing right next to it. This was the problem that they were supposed to have fixed last month.
The rep asked if it was near my wireless router. I told her it was right below it. But that can't really be the issue here can it? Could wifi interference cause constant desyncing? If that is indeed the problem, I'm sorta screwed since my modem, wireless router and gaming consoles are all the the same closet.

I hope they sell the controller separately, like they are going to do with the Gears console.

I NEED a golden controller!

Will it bleep and bloop like an astromech droid when you touch it in the right spots?

I was a huge SW nerd up until a few years ago (hell, maybe until the underwhelming BD announcement a few months ago) and I still love those droids. But there's no way in hell I'd buy this or even think about it even if I was still into it.

I don't know, maybe it's just me but this whole console skinning thing can be done with actual skins. *grump* *grump* *grump*

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

I don't need that as I currently have 2 consoles, one original and one slim, but I really want that. And with a December release I can squirrel away money under the radar to get it. This is one of those things us Star Wars dorks keep forever and are proud of, and this is much geekier than the SW PSP.

If your wireless router isn't set to auto-select the channel, try changing to 1 or 11, default is usually 6. Maybe that would cause less interference if it is indeed the issue.

Not digging the console like everyone else. It looks like a cheap toy. The gold controller, on the other hand is fucking sexy as hell.

Quick question for the Raptr folks here. I signed up ages ago and decided to check it out tonight and it hasn't been tracking anything. What gives?

Ha, I am the exact opposite. I like the console but I would get rid of that controller in a second. Too bad *knock on wood*, my console is just peachy.

I'm confused...
if you router is in the same closet as the console, why not plug a short Cat5e cable between them?

In Majors minute about the Star Wars edition one of the designers said
"Theres even a ________ logo on the back, the hardcore fans will love it"

Anyone hear what he said?

I could, but I don't need to. The problem is the controller, guitar and wireless headset all desyncing from the 360 console, as well as not being able to talk on XBL (even using a wired headset) while standing more than a foot away from the console. It was never a problem with keeping the console online.

In any case, I've decided it can't be an interfere issue with the router since everything is better when you move closer to the console ( and therefore closer to the router as well). If the problem were interference with 2.4 WiFi, that should make the effect more pronounced, right. It's like the radio frequency receiver in the console is very weak in my 360 and they never bothered to actually fix it last time.
