Is that completely on, or just with the powerbar plugged in?


completely on .. as in playing a game ..

you're not supposed to unplug the powerbar from the wall outlet .. it's always supposed to be plugged in .. when the 360 is off the powerbar's LED is the only electrical component that's on ..

I cant believe some users are still debating which system is better. Majority of us know that the better system is the 360 and the red light problem is now obsolete and there is a warranty backing that as well.

Me too :D, but i bought PS3 for Christmas
Not worth it:

1: PS3 is better
2: If your 360 crashes (which could most likely happen) everything you have on it ie: save data, is gone)



umm..... no it doesnt as the system crash problem in no way affects the Hard Drive. In fact you take it off when you ship your 360 for service and then when it returns it works just as it did before. So if your going to list reasons for someone not to buy something, at least get your facts straight.
Larchide is spelled wrong on purpose....

5.hd-dvd will eventually win because they have got the license to p0rn


http://www.netributi...t/view/499/182/

Adult movie studio Digital Playground, claiming to have produced the largest number of high definition movies in the industry over the past three years, said it is choosing Blu-ray Disc for all of its 'interactive' films because of the system's greater capacity. It also selected Blue-ray because Sony chose the format for its PlayStation 3 (PS3) box, due out in November.


Steve Hirsch, who heads adult film studio Vivid Entertainment, said he's currently using the HD-DVD format because it was the first to come out, but his studio will begin burning to the Blu-ray format as soon as it is available.

why are you ppl arguing over hd-dvd/blu-ray ... both of these formats aren't gonna be relevant for at least the next 3 or so years .. DVDs will continue their dominance and hd-dvd/blu-ray will come into the picture once the majority of users have hi-def TVs ... and by then both sony & microsoft will have new consoles which will incorporate whatever format wins ...

microsoft made a smart choice sticking with DVD and keeping the cost of their console lower ...

Consider that Blu Ray is a Sony license and that they would most certainly would not be sharing that with a competitor and it becomes relevant.

Do you want to shell out $N many dollars for an XBox and a Blu Ray player, if it becomes the dominant format, or do you want to shell out $N many dollars for a PS3 that has a Blu Ray player and simply pick up an HDVD player when you buy your next computer?

This becomes important if Blu Ray 'wins the war.'

It's MUCH cheaper to buy it from a plac like future shop.

It's $79us a year, but right now future shop has a package. 1 year gold membership, an extra headset, xbox live arcade game, and $25 off mail in rebate for another game., and that costs $69.

you really think sony is gonna screw around with microsoft on purpose ?? if they tried that, microsoft could do similar thing with their Windows OS to cripple support for sony products ... but none of this will happen ...

if blu-ray does end up winning, sony would obviously want to license their technology to as many people as possible, even competitors ..

but i think what will end up happening is that we'll see dual format players (they're already out, but i mean affordable ones) because there are a couple of large movie studios that have exclusive contracts with hd-dvd ...

Dead rising is a VERY good game, but can be extremely frustrating at times if you haven't gotten the hang of things yet.
My advice, is as soon Otis calls you about someone; head to the closest or more accessible people right away and save them first, but always prioritize your story missions over random people.

and transformers is a VERY bad game,if you still can you should return it for something better.

I rented Dead Rising.

It's fairly difficult to get used to at first, but with the leveling system it's interesting when you play over again with different abilities and at a higher level.

I am too, but that game is horrid....
it doesn't even deserve to have the name transformers attached to it.
Pretty much any movie licensed game is garbage.

they were tentative release dates(some of them confirmed) taken from the IGN release date page which is edited every week. I'm sure CNumb will edit it as things as they change.
