Hopefully that Jasper is all it's cracked up to be. :)

Yeah hopefully, but I don't see how it can't be.  Uses much less power, and seems to run quieter (although I can't do an A-B test).  And having all my games running off the HD instead of the disc will help things, too.  If it craps out, it craps out--and if it does, and getting a new one goes as smoothly as it did this time around, I won't have too many complaints. 

Really glad I had that replacement plan, though.  I was literally about a week outside of Microsoft's year warranty, and apparently the E-74 error doesn't fall under their three-year RROD warranty, so I would have had to deal with shipping it back to them and paying for any repairs out of pocket.  That would have sucked.

I might still get another game too. I'm kind of thinking maybe Fallout 3 or Left 4 Dead. 

I highly recommend purchasing Left 4 Dead. The campaign may "lack" in plot but the game itself is awesome. Plus Valve is adding at least 2 DLC with more campaigns and goodies this year.

Figured I'd post this for all the Mass Effect people here:

GameStop lists Mass Effect re-release for Feb. 10

Quote
In what seems to be one of the most generous packages of the new year, GameStop has listed a new, two-disc Mass Effect re-release due next month that includes the game, a documentary, trailers, music, design galleries and the Bring Down the Sky DLC, all for $19.99

Dang, I was hoping this was info on ME2!

How's this? :D

Quote
The RPG sequel is expected to hit between January and March of next year. The game will hit multiple platforms, but no specifics have been announced as of yet.

BioWare has confirmed that players will be able to continue Mass Effect 2 using their saved games from the first title, carrying over their characters.

I CANNOT wait for this game.  :)

Nice!  Man, I really need to go back and play that game again. Hell, I never got all of the achievements for it, so there is even more incentive.

I already have an Elite but I'm definitely thinking about picking this up just because.

Well looks like I'll be out of my X-Box for a good month. I actually don't mind as it'll give me time to go through some stuff I need to go through.

Can I suggest that we take all of the Halo 3 talk over to the Halo 3 thread, or would that just be too far out-of-line?

Answer:  Yes.

Sorry, just not interested in reading a full page of very-specific Halo discussion, especially when there's already an entire thread dedicated to it.

Does anyone have the Halo 360? I have the opportunity to purchase one(for a backup) and would like to know if anyone has had any trouble with theirs?

I do. It's been in use for 14 months with no problems so far (knock on wood.)

I do too and got it in August 2007. No problems what so ever with it.

Funny how things happen. My X-Box is apparently fixed. They received it on the 22nd and fixed it today and sent it out today. Unless they just sent me a refurbished one I am really surprised they fixed it so quickly.

In other news Best Buy is having a sale starting this Sunday, a bunch of games will be $9.99.

From G4:

PSA: Best Buy $10 Game Sale Starting Sunday 4/26 - 5/2

Starting this Sunday (4/26) through May 2, retail giant Best Buy will be having another massive video game clearance setting a multitude of titles at the pleasing sum of $9.99 each. Yes, there are plenty of shovelware titles in this batch but there are some notable picks as well. Soul Calibur 4, Pure, Fracture, Too Human, Devil May Cry 4 anyone?
