Yeah, definitely getting one. Best part is that I can use it for PC games too.

Reviews for Black Ops II are pretty good. They definitely lack the emotions and enthusiasm seen in the ones for Halo 4 though. Probably a consequence of having a new rendition of the game annually. Can't say I'm convinced to purchase it for myself. Will wait for it as a gift like I said xP.

Wreckateer is free for the 10th anniversary of Xbox Live. It's a Kinect XBLA game in case you weren't aware. Also some sale games. I picked up Castle Crashers finally, for 600 pts. It's been on sale before but I never bought it. Decided to finally.

$500m in the first 24 hours for BO2. What can you say to that? $200m for Halo 4 and $400m for MW3 last year.

I'm so tempted to pick up an Xbox 360 on black Friday. Halo 4 looks so awesome. Only thing is paying for basic online... So used to PSN+ spoiling me.

At the start of this console generation, I wanted the 360 more than the other consoles (Xbox was my favorite last gen console), but ultimately didn't end up getting any of them right away. Ended up with a PS3 as my primary console mainly due to better exclusives, at the cost of not being able to play online with 2/3 of my friends. Have a Wii as well, but that is pretty much just to play Zelda and Metroid.

Would probably be wise to pass on it at this point. New Xbox should be coming soon.

I've been trying to get rid of my 360 for a good price, don't use the damn thing.

I've been mostly PC/PS3.

Karaoke service coming to Xbox. It's in effect a rental. There are some rotating free tracks, or you can buy a block of time for access to the full library. Interesting. They are certainly experimenting with different approaches. I could see buying a block of time for our next party. It depends on the pricing.

Insane deals at the Microsoft Store on BF for software: AC3 for $25, Forza Horizon for $15, etc. Literally no other time of the year where it's worth going to the MS to buy anything.

Damn, went to walmart planning on buying on NFS:HP for $25, ended up getting NBA 2k12, Dishonored also for $25, and Red Dead Redemption for $15. And then I discovered that there is also a Steam sale going on...
