Why I really bought an Xbox-360

I know my wife reads my blog. (Hello dear). So I hope I’m not going to surprise her. zzzzzz7654198There are a bunch of reasons why I like the Xbox-360

Great is too small a word to describe what’s coming. At E3 we showed a new trailer for the Halo. It looks… superb. I like the Halo themed X-box on that page but I can live with my white non-HDMI one for now.  Have a look at the “ARMS Race” video linked to further down the page from Neill Blomkamp who is working on the Halo Movie (apparently).

Not withstanding, media, marble games, driving games and general living-room experience of the 360, the prospect of Halo 3 is just too exciting, and the real game play (as opposed to the X-box rendered cut-scenes) looks stunning. I can’t wait.
