OK, hubby decided to splurge a bit this weekend and bought the special edition Xbox 360 Halo: Reach edition! It makes halo sounds when you open and close the disk tray! LOL
We had been talking about getting one for a while, but this version seemed to make sense. It's one of the newer breed that is more RROD resistant and this package came with Halo Reach, 2 wireless controllers (with Halo artwork tattooing on the controllers and console), 250 GB hard drive, built-in wireless (b, g, n) and wireless headsets too. So now we have a 360 with very little to play on it. :D I'm sure Halo will entertain for a while. I haven't played a Halo since I played the first one on the PC. Man, what a blast! I'm playing solo campaign right now. I'm used to playing FPS with a mouse, not a controller for cripes sake. It does however makes us want to finally get an HDTV. We have been holding out for a while. Our main TV is a 27" CRT TV. Heh.
First thing we tried after trying Halo was the Netflix tie in. That works fairly nicely. Even on our G network, movies were fairly smooth. I like the network media and image sharing. I need to be careful and check to make sure however there are absolutely no adult content in any of my shared folders. D-: We have a password for mature content on the 360 content to block my 14 year old, but that doesn't work with network sharing of course. I was flicking through my PC files on the 360 this weekend and I came across one of the sample videos from yiffing.com. Oops! Plus I am sure there is likely a bit of some errant anime slash images and yaoi flying around where it shouldn't be. Damn my archaic hard drive rot from years gone by. I wish I would have been more organized in my PC file keeping 3, 4, 5, 6 years ago!
