That is not it at all. It is because me and my brother cant afford to buy the game so I am hating it so I do not feel so bad. :roll:

iPod's do suck though. I got the l33tst CD player EVER!

I really want a 360 now, so I can play games with you guys. :( Maybe I'll be able to convince my parents to get us one this Christmas, wonder how much they'll be day after Thanksgiving...

@Dr KillGood: A ~$400 360 is much better for me than a $1000+ computer. Why? Because the only reason I'd need a computer that good is for games, so why not save some money and get a 360 and an ok computer(/deal with this one)?
Heres how much it would cost me right now to buy everything needed for a 360 and Halo 3 or a computer and AA.

360-$350
Halo 3-$60
Live-$50
Total-$460

Computer-$1000+
AA-$0
Total-$1000+

As you can see, a 360 would be much cheaper for me. And don't say anything about needing to buy a tv, as almost every household in America already has one. Plus I'd rather play on a 48" HDTV than a 20" monitor (I could hook a computer up to the tv, but then I'd need some sort of desk for a keyboard and mouse).

The guy is just narrow-minded.
Nicely put.

Dis-liking both of the first two, I can't say I'm too excited to go out and buy a 360 for this. Realizing that Xbox has a lot more games for gamer types out there than nintendo does, I'd be willing to make the switch to microsoft, but maybe not until their next system launches.

I'm still a PC fan over all, as I can't play a FPS' well without a keyboard and mouse setup. I still like the modular abilites of a PC anyway, totally customized and upgrade ability, that even make the old systems useful for running servers, etc.

I'm looking forward to the orange box by valve. I have heard people playing TF2 had a blast, and I'm really interested in playing that and portal.

And my next PC, trying to build before the end of the year, is projected to cost about 500$. (nice dual core, ati x1950 pro, 2 gig ram, some cheap mobo)

VSKID you LOSE

Computer for $1000 then you get a crap of free games from the internet.

360 for $400 then you got to buy a ton of games at $60 a piece and that adds up to $1000 easily just from 14-16 games.

PC is win. What do you think they use to make the games that are on 360? :wink:

Dr. KillGood, leave this thread.

EDIT: Just noticed I posted without my message. :P I'm glad people are enjoying this game. I've yet to play much online play - is it good? Any better than it was with the Crackdown beta?

A PC capable of playing ported 360 games costs a lot more than $1000.

And lets not forget that they cost just as much.

I personally don't own a 360, but once marching season is over I'll get a job a probably buy one; and Oblivion for PSP.

I have played Halo before, and it was good, but I don't really see the point in "idolizing" a single game. Halo is not the only shooter out there, but it seems to be a favorite. I don't really understand why someone would wait all night for a single game, when you could just buy it in another week or so.

Even though I did go on a Wii campout, but that was for a console, so it's different. :D
Why is it that every time I post in a thread, it dies?

Even if you don't like Halo, theres no way it sucks, $170 million in nets sales on day 1 doesn't lie (though if Spiderman 3 was as bad as the first 2, it can). Thats a record for a single day of sales by any entertainment product. Heres a link to the story.

I was just playing with Ben for a few minutes, but he had to go, and then I had to go. And his voice was all broken and laggy...

I don't want to make an "I'm leaving" thread, but I've sort of lost interest in this board. So if you notice that I'm gone, that's why.

I saw something on the xbox forums about live just about dieing due to the surge in people playing.

@vskid: 2,830,000 copies - then. I see all of these articles comparing its release to a movie's, when the price of a ticket is six-eight times less than the game.
