cod3... meh. if you haven't played condemned or oblivion (since both of those are on PC) I'd get those instead.

Also, this is just a personal preference, but there's no point in getting the 2nd battery (since the quick charge kit comes with one). They last really long, but I dunno how long you play at a time.

How about throwing in Oblivion as well? :) Looks like a solid gaming package you've got there. Have fun playing with it!

Congrats, great package you have there but I would leave off 12 month live subscription until after using the free month long trial being that they service may not be up to snuff from Egypt. Also I would substitute COD3 for maybe Lost Planet or even Dead Rising.

Re: My Xbox360 order
 
thanks for your feedback :) I love WWII games but if you think that it is not that good then I might get Lost Planet because I am not really into RPG games nor do I like Single-Player-Only Games (I like some but not horror ones:D). I will certainly use my trial month, Thanks. So any opinions about Lost planet/oblivion? Might be my first RPG. btw, this is my very first xbox experience I have never TOUCHED an Xbox. :D

This is true! PS is the one and only choice here.

For the extra battery: I usually play with my friends/brother I don't want to leave them in the dark ages with AA batteries. :D

Cod3 is an excellent game, I have it on the PS3. AFAIK, it's better on the 360 as well. It looks better and suffers from less slowdowns during firefights.

Looks good to me. :) Hopefully you got someone else to confirm the NTSC stuff though right?

Yes, it's a common practice here. :)

I Would say take out Burnout Revenge and wait for Burnout 5 due out this year (what im doing)

And maybe take out Call of Duty 3 and put in something besides racing and shooting.....like Kameo, Viva Pinata, N3, ...etc give you some variety ..or perhaps wait for Crackdown (unless money is no factor then get both...)

Oh and recommended arcade game = Small Arms and the top down shooting car game...forget what its called...recently released...

Re: My Xbox360 order
 
+1 for Viva Pinata, I love that game.

I say take out COD3 and try Lost Planet but I'm basing that purely on videos I've seen since I haven't played either.
