I have to admit, it felt a little strange dropping $$$ on a Microsoft product, but I've been itching to get my hands on Halo for a while now (and have no interest in replacing my trusty G4 Cube to do it). Call me crazy, and I know some of you will, but the thing that finally got me off my butt and down to the store was the release of the green 'Halo edition' Xbox. Ugly? Perhaps. But the Xbox is such a monstrosity anyway, that the clear green case just puts it over the top. Call it high-tech camp. I've already spent a couple of hours with Halo, which is incredibly fun. I also picked up 'Star Wars: Kinghts of the Old Republic' and 'Crimson Skies.' It's nice to have something to play again since my wife has taken over our Gamecube with her 'Harvest Moon' addiction. Anyone else thinking of picking up a Green Machine?
