Need some Xbox 360 game ideas

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well thanks to me being a student and my aunt needing a new laptop. I am buying her a dell so we can take advantage of me getting her my student discount and getting myself a new Xbox 360 for free.

A few questions as I have never owned either the Xbox or a 360

1. Since this is the 4 gig model is there a way to upgrade the storage similar to the way that you can with the PS3?

2. Besides the obvious Halo and Gears series. What other Xbox exclusives do you recommend. The reason that I say exclusives is because I prefer the PS3 controller over the Xbox one. (and if its on the PC well then duh...I am going to get it for PC)

3. Is Kinect worth getting? I have the PS Move and really enjoy it, however I am noticing some of the games are limited.

4. How much room is needed for the Kinect. Seems like you would need more room than the PS Move or Wii.

5. Any other accessories that will make me get the most out of my new Xbox 360?

Thanks in advance.

Nba,Nfl,Nhl,Mlb I like the major league sports are very fun

Worth it BIG TIME very fun. Research shows the people prefer the kinect over the move because it Is cheaper has better graphics and more games.

Less room than the Wii and about equal space to the move

Yes case modding the 360 like me. Water cooling like me so it can prevent the red rings of death. Skins.Stickers.Ya know

Keep On Clockin!

Above poster is wrong. You can upgrade the storage space, I just used the 20 gb from my really old 360 and put it in my 4G and it works just fine.

Is it a simple swap like the PS3 or do you have to buy a Xbox specific accessory??

I think for retail the 2.5 inch hdd has an enclosure so just any hdd will not be snug against the sides but once it's in it's fine and I can't really see any problems arising.

1. Yes, you just open it up and pop in a 250GB Hard Drive which you can buy off of eBay or Amazon for $129.99. You can also use any 2.5" HD but that takes some modding. Look up some youtube videos, it really isn't that hard. My 11 year old cousin took the HD out of his broken laptop and is currently using it in his Xbox.

2. Xbox exclusives... hmm... Do they have Oblivion for the PS3? I don't really like RPG's but Oblivion was pretty fun... Lost Odyssey is also an Xbox exclusive and it is the best console game I have ever played in my life. Beautiful storyline that made me cry at times, and really damn fun action packed RPG. Its turned based, like FFX. Takes 40-50 hours if you don't do any side quests, or 80 hours if you finish everything.

3. Kinect is horrible. I hate it. I bought a used one off of eBay and returned it the day after.

4. A 3x3 meter area should be enough for the Kinect. My room is tiny and it still worked.

5. The Nyko charge base and 2 chargers for XBox 360 controllers. It's like $25 and comes with a charge base and 2 chargeable batteries you can use on 2 different controllers. Has about a 30 hour battery life, so I highly recommend it. Also, consider getting a Xtatic SX headset. Only $50 and has great sound quality. Can be used for the PC and 360.

I thought Fable was junk... Then again, I'm not an RPG player. The only RPG's I love are turn based jRPG's. But seriously, check out Lost Odyssey. It's only like $20 used, if not less by now. Every single person who I have recommended it to so far has ended up loving the game, even people who didn't really like RPG's! It's just so much fun!

Pick up Fable 'the lost chapters' on PC... Easily the best of the series.. Fable 2 was meh.. 3 was better but still not great.

I wouldn't waste my time with kinect... A gimick that will get old quick if you ask me...
 
Fun inside...

I just ordered LA Noire and GTA4. LA Noire because I heard it was a great game overall, and GTA4 because I love just running around being silly (e.g. causing fistfights between two people by inciting them to attack me, then causing one to accidentally hit the other. This usually escalates to a group fight with 10-15 people. Too much fun.) Edit: (I also call the cops on them sometimes. HAHA)
