True Flanker.

Also though... It's $100 less then it's costing MS to get it too you.
Considering all other technology, not to many products are sold to you at a loss to the seller.

But if it's $90 more then you want to spend... I could understand that.

MS should freakin' give the XBOX 360 away for free for crap sakes... Oh, what are they going to go bankrupt? Seriously...

Just charge more for the games... $80 to $100

Gamefly.com would be looking might nice if that was the case...

He is getting an Xbox 360 for his birthday. If you guys don't want to help then I'll go elsewhere but don't try to sell me a console.

Yea but you can't pirate movies and music on a XBOX 360. Also you dont have easy access to porn either.

I was just trying to help you & your friend spend his money right.

I'll go somewhere else... since your not open to suggestion.

Well I'm still getting it as soon as its avaliable, I'm the biggest "console fanboy" around here after all. I'm just not happy about having to spend $500 for it (need a video adapter too, for my PC monitor).
