Default Re: My Xbox360 order

Just bought CoD3 two days ago and I like it more than I thought I would. Camera work and animations are simply awesome, plus the graphics are a solid improvement over CoD2 too. The screenshots simply do not make it justice.

I'd switch Burnout for PGR3 or TDU though. Other ones I agree with totally, since they're pretty much mandatory for every 360 owner

Pretty much share that opinion. I've only bought Doom and Cloning Clyde, which are worth every penny btw.

I've used the points to purchase several XBL games. If you like any of the classic arcade games, it's worth it.

It is/will be important that you register your location as being in the country you are getting the points card from. As strange as it sounds, points cards from the USA do not work on Canadian XBL accounts. Otherwise if you have a credit card (visa, mastercard), I would recommend either finding a points/subscription bundle (I got a extra headset with my subscription card), or simply buying the points online through XBL. I'm sure everyone would agree that buying a points card that you cannot use would be quite a tragedy.
For burnout revenge, and I have not played it, I've read some so-so reviews on it. While PGR3 isn't a option, you may want to look into NFS:Carbon? There are a number of websites out there http://www.teamxbox.com/ that can give comparative reviews.
COD3, I played the demo and given more time in my life would buy the game. As it goes the graphics are more of a port/minor upgrade but the game is still quite a bit of fun. If you are fine with that, then there is no reason not to buy it.

Well, I might get just One 1600point for the games that I like. I will make sure that they work. I like burnout and its fast cars. I tried Carbon on PC and I just didn't like it that much.

Are the points on the card type only useable for certain games?

Points cards can buy any XBL game, and even extend your subscription, assuming you have enough points that is.

Actually, I don't think you can continue or start a xbl subscription with the points.. or at least the webpage doesn't seem to indicate that you can. I use a credit card for all my xbl stuff.

If you are going to be an avid online player, get the wireless headset, much more convenient than the wired headset
