Just wanted to say that i am in love with it. when i first got it, i was kinda skeptical but after playing it for a full month, i got to say it is the machine to have. I'm not one of those Sony vs Microsoft guys, or am i going to hate on Sony... In my mind its preference, but it just kinda irrates me that people crap on the 360 saying that it sux, and sony is gonna be so much better. But how can people compare it with the ps3 not even out yet?? I guess they are just haters, and haters have to hate. I gotta give credit to microsoft for developing an EXCELLENT XBOX LIVE for the 360. Its so easy to use, and i love the fact that if a freind comes online, ill be able to join in his game right away. The voicemail system, the ranking....all of it. It kinda reminds me of Apple OSX (every1 calm down!!) in the sense that the whole system works as a whole (the 360 with live, and with the games, downloading demos, playing my own music from the HD while im playing CoD 2) IMO live is worth the $50 a year. I also feel sorry for those whos 360's have died or have had any problems. I just hope that they understand they ARE REV. A...and we should of expected these kinda things, same as we shall experience with Rev A. mactels.
