Tomorrow I'll be back in the XBox camp..

Yesterday I sold my PS3 and ordered an XBox 360 pro from Dell.

Right off the bat, I'm going to get Halo3 and next month I'm getting Halo Wars.

So does anyone want to inform me of the other games I've missed over the last year and a half? Which ones should I try out?

WOOT! UPS says my XBox is out for deliver.

Man I wish they would let you see the GPS data on the delivery trucks. It's almost like Christmas day

I think I'll head out to GameStop and find a used Halo3 copy to play with.

1st let me say that I'm really impressed with the new XBOX Live experience. Microsoft actually got something right for once. Also, I'm fairly impressed with Netflix on the XBox. The picture quality is a bit lacking but it isn't terrible either. The only thing on the negative is the movie selection. Hopefully Netflix will improve on that as time goes by. I wouldn't mind paying a little more for a newly released video.

The avatar generator is very similar to that on the Nintendo Wii but the characters have more options and are a little better defined. I look forward to seeing how those work out on games. So far I've only tried my avatar out with a quick game to UNO, just to see what it was like.

I did manage to buy a used copy of Halo 3. The game has not disappointed me. I need to hurry up and beat it so I can put my efforts into Halo Wars when it gets here next month.

Why the fuck did I buy a PS3?

The only regret I have when deciding to buy an xbox is that I wont get to play Killzone 2

Some of the movies on the Netflix comes in HD which is pretty sweet. But the other ones that dont, yea not so good. I kinda of like the movie selection due to its movies I havent seen in awhile or I missed it.

But I bought me a PS3 for watching moives though, i sure love my blu ray.

Call of Duty 4...Its been out over a year and people still love it. Id suggest getting a copy of it. I picked one up off craigslist for $25. Left 4 dead is also a great one.

Is COD 5 better on xbox?

I've got it for ps3, but for some reason I like COD4 a bit more, maybe I need to get more use to the weapons.

I really only play GTA4 & GOW on the xbox360. What other games would be better on the xbox vs. the ps3 version?

You know Halo Wars, is a RTS game and not an FPS, right?

If you're happy with COD4, don't bother. It's the same thing with a fw minor tweaks and annoying jungle landscapes.
