Waited in line for a half hour when it first came out, then I ran in the store and tried to beat the **** out of some old lady getting one for her grandson. Needless to say, she actually won that fight, so I just left and played my buddies.

I bought Oblivion for the PC, went home and my PC wouldn't run it. Rather than spend heaps of money on a new video card I just bought a 360 so I could play Oblivion!

Now if she was cheating on me, why whould she go to so much trouble buying me all they game systems I wanted? We have lived together for 10 years plus now, she just makes more money than me and likes to buy me the things I like.

She bought those things for you out of guilt for cheating, and getting you video games in her mind atones for her wrong-doing and alleviates her concious. However, it only perpetuates that you'll turn a blind eye and she can rationalize her unfaithful behavior, so it really solves nothing and just makes it worse.

Or... she could just be really rich and nice. Who knows.

i got mine from xmas

this is how u should get urs just incase this is really a survey to find the best way

ok its a little confusing

first you hhave to get around 400 dollers

then u have to go to the store and remember make sure its a game store not an illegal 1

then u have to pick up the green white box that has xbox 360 in big letters

bring it to the counter (or run if ur a theif)

give the man/lady money

pick out a game as well (get something nice )

and then go home

do u thing u can haddle that because its a lot

Bought it last year with money I got from Christmas.


When that one Red Ringed, I bought another 360 to tide me over, plus I just wanted another one anyway as my family sometimes likes to play.

When my RROD one came back, it already was showing signs of a new RROD, so I traded that up towards a new arcade system to replace it, for HDMI and a lower risk of RROD. Plus a new controller never hurts.

It was easy to get mine. i just seen some older lady walking out with one...so I just mugged her and went on my merry way :)

Just kidding. I just went and paid cash for it, cause I have a job. If your a kid maybe you should get a paper route or something. There is tons of little odds and ends jobs that people will pay you 10-20 for. Earn it son!

I got mine about 2 years ago. I know a manager at a GameStop and he held mine for me when they were still in high demand.

I pre-ordered mine August 2005 and paid £20 deposit. A week before the 360 released Gamestation phones me and tells me they won't be able to give me the Premium I ordered because they weren't getting enough. They said there was one Core console available I could have on launch day or wait for more premiums to arrive.

I took the core then traded it for a premium when they became available off the shelf. I remember it was the day Oblivion was released. I got my new Premium and Oblivion on the same day. Good times.

I bought the Core and about five or six games in the launch week. I saved some money and sold some old consoles and games to get extra game money. I had two crystal Xbox's, I sold one of them with a load of games. I had a translucent blue Nintendo 64 with a few rare games like Conkers Bad Fur Day and Zelda: Majoras Mask. I also had about 4 other games for my N64, sold all of that too. I also sold my PS2 and every game I had for it. I've since bought another PS2 and restarted my collection.

I also had a Sega Saturn with rare Japanese games like Soukyugurentai and Metal Slug. I had other Japanese and European games and loads of accessories like the arcade stick and racing wheel. I sold it on ebay and lost a load of money. The amount I got for everything was less than I paid to import Metal Slug from Japan. I still regret it to this day. I think it was because of the pictures I used on ebay. I had a piece of crap digital camera at the time.

The 360 is a great console. I've owned most of the consoles that have been released since 1985. The 360 is my favorite.
