Default Re: Question's about Xbox 360 and My PC

For the XBOX 360, I don't play consol games anymore. But, I would recommend it.

On the other hand, the PC, it definately needs upgrading onVideo card and RAM. A 7600GT or higher is good. A X1600 or higher is good, for the ATI.

1GB of RAM will cause an impact, but, if you also want to usr Vista, 2GB of RAM is your best bet.

im looking forward to ddr on the 360, smackdown vs raw 07, and most of the xbl arcade. seriously, that arcade thing is a really good idea. like $6 for a solid game. thats soo awesome!

anyway, i definately recommend an xbox 360. as for the accessories, u should get some kind of internet connection, whether its the wireless adapter, or wired, just make sure u can get online. and u should get the permium package if u can. cuz u'll NEED the hdd, headset, and "hi-def" cables. also, u will want the rechargable batteries(play and charge kit) because its a hassle to get regular batteries. um, thats all i can think of for accessories.

also, if u like party games, u should get FUSION FRENZY. its like the xbox(xbox1)'s version of mario party. its seriously alot of fun. um, and if u dont already hav it, then get halo 2.


pc:
u should get at least 1 gig of ram, or better yet 2gb. and as others hav already stated, u should get a better video card. 7600gt is awesome. i have one. and i can say it truly is one of hte the best. at least for hte price i payed.

EDIT>>> Found it.

This is what is coming to Live Arcade soon.

Arcade Ports:
-Pac-Man
-Ms. Pac-Man
-Contra
-Super Contra
-Frogger
-Galaga
-Sonic the Hedgehog
-Defender
-Track & Field
-Dig Dug
-Rally X
-Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
-Time Pilot
-Scramble
-Paperboy
-Root Beer Tapper
-Ultra Mortal Kombate 3

Non-Arcade Ports:
-Lumines Live!
-Small Arms
-Heavy Weapon

Here are some games that will be coming out by the end of this year or the beginning of the next.

- Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 (Can't beat this!)
- Overlord (British humor meets Lord of the Rings )
- Snoopy vs. The Red Baron (It's not too bad, really)
- Battlestations: Midway (World War II Pacific Theatre sim)
- Enchanged Arms (Interesting RPG, looks Final Fantasy based)
- Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run (The Rock is in this one, so it owns)
- Test Drive Unlimited (Fast driving meets hot cars meets MMO style gameplay)
- Winning Eleven: Pro Soccer Evolution 2007 (Japan's best selling Soccer/Football game)
- Army of Two (Details are sketchy, but one thing is known: Online Co-Op! )
- Blue Dragon (Another J-RPG, looks pretty good)
- F.E.A.R. (THAT'S RIGHT! For all the people that can't afford the PC hardware, just buy the Xbox 360 and play F.E.A.R. equivalent to a PC on Max settings)
- Justice League Heroes (I guess they want to revive the Xbox, because this isn't on the Xbox 360, only Xbox)
- John Woo's Stranglehold (This one should be good, considering it has John Woo's, the famous Chinese choreorgrapher, moves. Chow Yun-Fat stars in this game as some police detective)
- Lost Planet: Extreme Condition (One thing: OHMYGOD!)
- Family Guy (Haha, why watch it when you can play it?)
- Tony Hawk's Project 8 (Skateboarding in HD, awesome)
- Timeshift (Old title, but new publisher may breathe life into it)
- Alan Wake (Condemned: Criminal Origins scary, but probably even better)
- Frontlines: Fuel of War (Another great looking war game)
- Mobile Ops: The Hundred-Year War (Gundam owns, period)
- Ninety-Nine Nights (Dynasty Warriors, but even better!)
- DDR Universe (Ahh, the holy one and only, DDR)
- DDR Ultramix 4 (Yay! Another DDR fest!)
- Just Cause (Think FarCry meets Grand Theft Auto)
- Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (This series never dies, does it?)
- Superman Returns (Superman in HD = Ownage)
- Alone in the Dark (This series has gotten lots of negativity, but the next chapter will be in HD and it'll look good. Expect to see more)
- World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions (Nothing "oh-ah" about this game, but one feature is pretty cool. It supports the Xbox Live Vision camera, so if you're playing online matches, you can see your opponent's face)
- World Championship Poker: Featuring Howard Lederer "All In" (Another poker game)
- Crackdown (Supercop meets Grand Theft Auto, except you play as a cop)
- Destroy All Humans! 2 (The sequel to the suprisingly fun RPG-style game where you play as a Martian alien on earth)
- Haze (Another FPS, but coming from Ubisoft, expect a lot)
- Indiana Jones [Working Title] (Little is known about this one, but expect lots of action as you bustle through San Francisco)
- Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (Sure, it's Legos, but Lego = Ownage. The first Lego Star Wars game wasn't bad, so expect to see something from this title)
- Splinter Cell: Double Agent (THIS IS IT! Ubisoft has outdone themselves...this game is awesome, so much decision making to do, but each decision has an impact on the whole game)
- Rainbow Six Vegas (From the gameplay I've seen, this one will be good, really good)
- Dead Rising (Probably the only game where killing zombies is actually fun and ROFLMFAO-worthy, instead of scary)
- Huxley (Not only does this game allow cross-platform online play, this game is a FPSMMO, meaning BIG online fights)
- The Darkness (Another horror/action/shooter)
- Hellboy (Comic to movie to game adaptation, nothing suprising)
- The Sopranos: The Game (Self-explanatory)
- Sonic the Hedgehog (Old school gaming meets next-gen hardware and HD)
- Star Trek: Legacy (Beam me up, Scotty!)
- Star Wars 2007 [Working Title] (Another Star Wars game from the guys at Lucasarts)
- Fable 2 (Every decision has it's consequences...)
- Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (It's Operation: Market Garden in HD, and it'll OWN)
- Eragon (Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings)
- Virtua Tennis 3 (Self-explanatory)
- Too Human (This action-RPG trilogy sounds good, even has 4 player online co-op over Live)
- Phantasy Star Universe (I'm sure most of you have heard of that Gamecube hit)
- BioShock (Wow, it's F.E.A.R. meets water meets Condemned)
- Viva Pinata (Sounds dumb, but if you saw the E3 demo from Microsoft's press conference, it's actually not bad)
- WWE Smackdown vs. RAW 2007 (Not bad...but I like Dead or Alive 4 or Fight Night Round 3 better)
- Xiaolin Showdown (Anyone seen that saturday morning cartoon before?)
- Mass Effect (Coming from BioWare, the creators of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire, expect this Sci-Fi RPG to be GOOD)
- Turok (It's back and ready to kick ass!)
- Gears of War (This is the next Halo. Period.)

Games I hope will eventually be on the Xbox 360:
- Assassin's Creed (The E3 demo was AWESOME, and even though Ubisoft has only announced it for the PS3, the demo was strangely running on a Xbox 360 debug kit. Hmmm...strange)
- Unreal Tournament 2007 (Only PC and PS3? Blasphemy! Never underestimate the power of the Xbox 360 and Xbox Live!)
- Crysis (Sorry, it's currently a Windows Vista only release, thanks to EA )
- Spore (The next game from Will Wright, the creator of the legendary Sim City series, this one will be nice, but only on PC for now)
- Mercenaries 2: World in Flames (The first Mercenaries game wasn't so great, but it was on the Xbox too! What's with the PS3 only?)
wow thanks for the big list of games

Thanks for you reply lhuser about getting the graphic card yes almost every one recommended me to buy a better one and about the ram yes i should uprade it because when windows vista final releases ill need a good ram atleast 1 or 2 would be better.

Thanks again

I think I'm going to go get one pretty soon too.

Where did you buy it?

And I hear Call of Duty 2 is a great game too!
