Default Xbox 360 - First Two Weeks

It's been a little over two weeks since I've gotten my Xbox 360, and I'm here to give my experiences with the system so far. This console certainly has it's issues, but do the pros make up for the cons?

Discuss the article here!

Oh yeah man, hopefully. MS is busting their ass off right now, and I'm sure something good will come out of it.

As you said in your article, problems are to be expected...always frustrating.....and people tend to say "MS are evil"...but that's a little irrational. We are talking about incredibly complex hardware that is mass produced......

Anyways.....

We owe a lot to MS.

Is MS didn't screw up all the time, I wouldn't like Linux so much.

If MS didnt do any of their job at all, none of us whould have the jobs we currently do.

Thus goes the circle of life.
