(and yes... Benzo the PS3 is very tempting. just don't think i can spend $400 on the system. i'd rather spend $279).
You will regret it.....I am speaking from personal experience here.

I just did and maybe I didn't click the right link at wiki because all it listed "Doolittle" album. I didn't see any reference to "Rockband".

But they are all still albums that you have to purchase right? I know its something like 4 bucks to download a song, but how much for an album?

Won't Get Fooled Again was quite challenging to play on the drums, I can't imagine what Baba O'Riley must be like.

So i got my Xbox 360. I got it for free actually. kinda. and it's the one with the hard drive too.

woot.

My brother in law had one and he rarely played it. I knew this ahead of time and i actually wanted him to sell me his, but i suppose he didn't want to take money from me, so he just brought it over last weekend with the intention of letting me "indefinately" borrow it.

so far, so good. I'm really impressed with FIFA 08 and the other game i now own called "Dirt." It's a new version of the Collin McCrae ralley games (which i have always really loved).

So can any of you XBOX guys recommend your favorite racing game? I'm torn between Project Gotham 3 or 4 and Forza Motorsport 2. and suggestions?

Free consoles FTW!

I know nothing about racing games.

I have Need For Speed Carbon for the Wii, but it was a gift and I've only played it a couple of times.

I guess all the debate between buying a specific Xbox, or even a ps3 went out the window after i spoke to by brother in law.

If you want a truely good soccer game get, Pro Evolution soccer and throw Fifa to the trash lol. gears of war and Halo 3 are great. Burnout must be good as a racing game. Call of duty is pretty good too.

here you will find some reviews. Search around:

You sound like my annoying co-worker who is always slagging me for prefering FIFA.
Anyways, i've always preferred the look and feel of FIFA - plus this years version is much more of a simulation than arcade.

besides the team liscencing that FIFA has is a big plus.
