@usermikey its in all the sections depending on what section ur in when u click on the video...like right now im in the playstation 3 and it says the video is for playstation 3. so it isnt just stuck in 360 its stuck in all of them. @CogSoldier123 and no the best games are not played on the 360...does ur console have little big planet? infamous? uncharted series? killzone? SOCOM? no i didnt think so

to all you whining babies out there who are complaining about why this video is in the 360 section, it is because all the good games in the video are played best on the 360

Penguins227, The "largest aerial battle ever" is near the end of a movie called Independence Day; a movie about an alien invasion. If I'm correct, and I think I am, Will Smith plays as a soldier/pilot in it. Good movie.

Happy 4th of July everybody! More than anything I find it to be a fun time to go out on the lake with family and friends, do some water tubing, grilling out, and shoot off some fireworks. I hope everyone else has found some fun things to do, and some fireworks to blow up! - I agree with GTA 4 though, I bought it again about two weeks ago and that's what I've been playing recently.

@amnesiac23 I'm not being offensive at all, just stating the harsh truth that we did what was necessary at the time to have what he have now, as other cultres were doing the same thing. Also, you can tie emotion to history, true, and rightfully so. However, don't let that override facts. Factually speaking, every culture has done "wrong" things, but, once again, during their era and time period, was it really wrong? Or were they simply surviving and doing what every other culture would? You live, or you die. I'm not supporting killing or slavery in any fashion but rather saying sometimes certain evils are necessary depending on the circumstances. Happy 4th of July :) That's my last post.

@highsmith91 o your cool, your so self conscious about yourself you have to bring others down to make you feel good about your own looks

Celebrate our freedom and independence while you can people, because it is getting slowly taken away. Soon even your thoughts will be criminal, it's already happening with politically correctness. Have a good 4th.

Well...huh? It would have been nice to know who was who? Not listing the names at least once was kind of a fail.
