    Default Nightmare

    Hi people,
    well, I have been drooling since the dawn of Xbox and now is has arrived I have lost the bottle to go and purchase one. I have been down to the local store many a times to purchase the beast, but when it comes to hading over the cash, my heart starts racing, I come over all faint and my palms get sweaty then I shout “NO BILL YOUR NOT GETTING IT AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Whilst being removed by security. Anyways I owned the DC and well it saddens me to think about it so I’m not going their, weep, sniff sniff. Anyhow back to the point, I have played halo on a m8 Xbox and after recovering from RSI with the force of the rumble packs I was amazed, but I just don’t want to buy it for 1 game and I cant find any accurate and reliable web sites which contain games and the release dates for over here in the UK. I would just like to know what games it has coming out over here In the UK shortly..

    Also is the Xbox multi region DVD?
    With online gaming is there a need to worry about a virus with it having a hard drive?

    Thanks in advance people……!!! And please no Flaming ……..
    :confused:

    Xbox is well worth the dough.

    As for release dates for the UK, I don't know. You would need to find a UK site with the release dates.

    Also is the Xbox multi region DVD?
    No, It is encoded to the region you buy it in.

    With online gaming is there a need to worry about a virus with it having a hard drive?
    Nope, that is a PoS2 fanboy rumor. You are safe to game online.

    hey, welcome to the forums man! anyways, about the price...we're all lucky that the xbox doesn't cost a whole lot more than what microsoft is selling it now because of the things that you get with it(hard drive, broadband connection, dvd capabilities, dolby 5.1 for both dvds and gaming, THE BEST gaming system in the universe, etc.)

    and also don't worry about the xbox becoming the next DC( even though i loved that little white box with the orange triangular light..*sniff sniff*)the xbox has more support than what the DC had..which was the main reason why the dc came to a screeching halt...so go buy the xbox, its worth the money...besides, the more people that buy it, the longer it will last on the market
    5 National Championships...13 Final Fours...Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
