    Got an imported 360

    I got an imported (US) Xbox 360 and so far all the games I have tried worked, though i only have a few - the '360 has crashed 4 times in 3 days though - and that is playing REAL 360 games too (PGR) . . . . . in fact once when setting it up !

    So far not too impressed

    Just another example that Nintendo is doing best keeping their mouth shut. They told the world about this a year++ before they were going to release their console, and look who first made it accessible to the public.. :rolleyes:

    David,

    thank you for your information! Do you have the feeling that there is a big improvement to play the old games on Xbox 360?!

    Best,
    Kucchi

    I never experience any problem with my X360, including BC titles. I've played Halo 2 without any problem.

    I havn't had any problems either, played Halo 2 and Forza. Halo 2 looks better, but I can't really say Forza is any better. In fact menus have slown down in forza big time.

    Never had a crash, biggest problem I've had was one online game in CoD2 where I was so laggy I couldn't shoot or walk around.

    I've played Halo and Halo 2 on the 360. Hal 2 looks better, but Halo looks as good as the Mac version, which looks better than the original Xbox version.:)

    Original Xbxo games run faster and smoother emulated on the 360 than they did natively on the Xbox.

    Halo 2 does look better, and things are smoother (bringing up friends lists no longer lags at all, it comes up very smooth, and other examples).

    The 360's very powerful. I hope they support DOA Ultimate soon.
