    I've made it through close to 22 yrs without ever owning a console, but I finally caved and pulled the trigger on an Xbox 360. I really loved the original Bioshock so my first game will be Bioshock 2. Probably gonna buy GTA IV eventually. That is all.

    Nice going, you will love it may take a bit of getting used to seeing as you haven't owned a console before. Be sure to get Modern Warfare 2.

    Already played that on PC, great game. I actually played Bioshock on PC but with an Xbox controller, so it won't be too new, and of course Halo was a staple activity at the beginning of college. I don't know if I'll have time for multiplayer, at least for the upcoming months, so that will figure in the decision of getting a game like MW2 or Halo.

    Makes sense, I'm not really a Halo fan although I do own a copy of Halo 3 I've never really played it. Multiplayer is really good, great community (once you mute the 6 year olds) but obviously the big thing is Xbox Live costing £££, but I suppose you don't have to worry about that for now.

    Sticker price for PS3 put me off, and I have no need for a Blu-ray (honestly, on my 37" TV, DVDs are good enough). It also seems like Microsoft is more invested into Xbox 360 as their media play advances, whereas Sony doesn't seem to have a specific direction in mind for what they want the PS3 to be.

    edit: that being said, the PS3 is objectively superior, it just seems like it's not really being put to use in ways that would interest me as a semi-casual gamer.

    Good point. I stand corrected and embarrassed.

    I feel I should show you my Bioshock 2 special edition... I showed IPwnNubletz and he got really angry that it wasn't available in the USA.

    Pretty sure you can see that even if you haven't got me added.

    I really love GTA4. If you've got friends with it too, you can have hours of fun on freeplay just making up challenges and doing fun stuff like stealing helicopters and killing-sprees on Happiness Island - I've not played "Ballad of Gay Tony" or the other one yet though, and they've been given like... 9.8 on IGN.
