Christmas Present, so I get it on Tuesday. woot.

Okay, so I have many questions..... that I must ask the wise and old elders on these forums, Kal and Dj?

Plus it may provide some insight to those that are thinking about purchasing one?

Okay:

Movies... are any free?
And what the hell is Movie Night on Thursdays?

I am getting the Elite, and I bought Halo 3 and a play and charge kit. What other accessories should I get?

anyone still play battlefront two? :P

No idea.

Gears of War, Orange Box (if your PC sucks too much to play it), Wired Controller (if your of the persuasion who plays games with controllers on your PC as well), Guitar Hero II (Three is crap for beginners).

Noone except for a few sycophants who actually liked the terrible port.

They don't have any free movies, but I personally stay away from the movie download service on Live anyway. It's only a rental, you download it but you can only keep it for a short time.
The TV shows however are permanent.

On Movie Night

I would heavily suggest Mass Effect above all other games for the 360 right now...but after that I'd suggest Bioshock, Rainbow Six Vegas, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighters 1 and 2, and Call of Duty 2 (that's right, 2 not 4).

I already read xbox.com, lol. I'm still a little confused about how movie night goes.

Also, are we able to look people up on Xbox live? Like through names?

And is there some kind of parental settings that will record messages or texts?

I'm hazy on what it is as well, but from what it said it looks like you can invite someone to watch a movie on Live that you have, they'd stream the same video over their connection. :?

The only search function that I know of is through the Xbox site itself...

About the recording of chats, I don't believe you can.

I have to agree with Kal on Mass Effect. SO. MUCH. FUN.

The game is more of an epic story than a game...

Also, you cannot record texts or anything like that.

Xbox Live is a must. Sure, the games are great and all by themselves, but with Live it takes the Xbox from rivaling with the other current systems to beyond awesome. It's amazing, really.

For the other stuff: no idea. :P

Let's post our gammer-tags! I'm Lazer X7 on live, though I could become something along the lines of Sentinel soon.

RossPH91 is my gamertag.

As for accessories, the wireless headset. The wired one is incredibly annoying. And for games, Mass Effect is an absolute must.

I don't know if it's too late or not, but I can also heavily recommend Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation. I have never played a better flight game in my life. :D

EDIT: AS for my gamertag, Astartes Marine.

That's not a gamertag. :P It's a guest profile. They can't look it up as a friend.

Has anyone played Rainbow Six Vegas 2, yet? I think it's a brilliant game.

I haven't played it, but I heard it wasn't so good. My contacts lied to me? :shock:

Multiplayer and terrorist hunt is good, single player seems like an afterthought.

To Carlist's question:
I've maxed my ACES and unlocked all weapons, and in rank I am currently a First Sergeant with some 90,000 EXP. So far I'm enjoying the game, co-op on T-Hunts are lots of fun.

I'm really tempted to get a 360. I could get a Premium for £190, and I do have £190...

(That's about $380 Yankeestan Dinars for those of you who forget your exchange rates)
