when do you expect price drops for current 55$ games? when will they cost like the old games that are 30$ or less..

because some games like call of duty 3 are good games but nothing special and not worth buying for 55$ when you have games like gears of war or rainbow six: vegas...

You can buy region free games at www.play-asia.com slightly better than retail I guess, certainly much better than the UK retail prices which are absurd.

Electronics Boutique sells used games, usually at $10-$15 off at minimum.

And you can get a cheaper vga cable from play-asia.

Default Re: Im thinking about buy an xbox 360

should I wait a month or 2 before I buy? because I read some news that say that in q1 2007 microsoft will relase an xbox 360 with a 65nm core - that will cause less heat and more stabilty, right? and it will also make it cheaper.. and I heard that they will even but a internal hd-dvd drive.. if thats true thats really awsome - a more cool and stable console with an hd-dvd drive that will even maybe be cheaper (but the price is the least that bothers me)...

so should I wait?

65nm version is definitely coming, it may be more cool and possibly more quiet. Newer version also may be HDMI capable. HD DVD internal is not likely because it would add a crapload to the cost and by XMAS 2007 you will be able to buy a standalone for not much more than the HD DVD addon.

Whether it is worth it to wait for a revision that *might* be more cool/quiet is up to you. I wouldnt bet on HD DVD internal, however. It would add too much to the cost and give little advantage.

Default Re: Im thinking about buy an xbox 360

when do you think the new 360 with 65nm cpu will be out?

I dont live in the US and im ordering it from the US so its important to me that the system will be cool and more stable because if it gets ****ed up its a pretty big deal to start shipping it back to the US and waiting for a new one...

Right.. but I wouldn't bet on in-build HDMI either
