    I have been searching high and wide for other Mac owners that also own a 360 but until now have not been so lucky. I got so sick of hearing problems PC owners had with their 360 and I never had anyone to lend an ear to my Mac/360 problems until now, joy! :D Speaking of problems, about that widely known DNS error associated with routers, after reading a few posts, I'm assuming that the problem isn't Mac related (seeing as how it's a Microsoft product).

    i just bought a 360 a week ago and i love it. havent had any router problems or anything.
    i think its a solid product. i just think M$ made a bad decision about shipping off RROD consoles that they knew about. but there replacement plan is pretty good so i guess that kinda makes up for it

    You can get them through Dell right now for $169 :( I'm finding it real hard to resist now (and I only resist because of other things I need to save for) $169 would buy about a third of a Wacom Intuos :(

    I've got a 360 and a PS3.

    360 name - Dr Doomsicle

    PS3 name - Doomrod

    I chose those names because I thought they showed a certain sense of maturity.

    I go where the games are....Window is a poor product IMO, while the Xbox 360 is great fun.

    I think MS really nailed the software/hardware end to end solution with Xbox 360...Windows, not so much.

    I have a 360, PS3 and a Wii.

    I use the 360 for games, the PS3 for BluRay and steaming vids and the Wii for when I have a couple friends over.

    I've yet to game on the PS3 but I think my next purchase will be COD 5 to give it a shot.

    I've got a Mac, PC, and 360. (Mac is Bootcamp capable).

    I'm only seriously playing 1 game on my Mac- WoW. Everything else is PC/Bootcamp or 360. Currently looking forward to L4D.

    Finally splurged and got a 360 for Halo 3 - loved Halo: CE on the Mac, and noticed Halo 2 and 3 only are for Xbox (2 was made for Vista, but I hate Vista... plus it's like $10 for a used Halo 2 copy for Xbox).

    Now I have about 15 games - one of the best, imo, is Guitar Hero. Haven't tried Rock Band, because I think I'd get too addicted.

    Currently playing: Fable II and Test Drive Unlimited

    I used to have all 3 consoles, but just sold the Wii and PS3 to help pitch in money for my MacBook.

    There seem to be a number of us here on MR. :)

    Haven't heard of that. I have an ooooold Linksys wireless b router (though the 360 is attached VIA a 50' CAT5e cable :D) and no connection problems.

    Me too. Got fed up with the troubles of PC gaming :mad: and 360->PC ports that just didn't feel right.

    Had a 360 since it hit the scene and love it.

    Apologies if this is common knowledge, but I've only just discovered it.

    Connect 360 - NullRiver

    Allows you to stream video, images and music to your 360 from your, wait for it......Mac!

    Just another reason not to fire up my PC, since I switched a few months ago now :D

    Ok, after playing it for several weeks (off and on) I'm crazy about L4D. :D
