I went to the BF sale at Wallyworld to pick up N, Drake but by the time I weeded through the crowd. Him and all 200 + was gone within the 1st hour of the sale. So I decided I'll just pick up the Tombraider Ed X1 instead (Not part of the BF sale but oh well right.) They didn't have any! But back towards Automotive there was a huge stack of GOW Ultimate ed X1's priced at $299
Now mind you that the N, Drake console bundle was by far the better deal (at least locally, and I shop local as often as I can.) as it included not only N, Drake but both of his twin brothers as well. With the X1 at the same exact price, all you get is Gears of War Ultimate. And MS wonders.. I digress!
Anywho, I get the X1, set it up and low and behold. In addition to your tag, Microsoft puts your full name across the top on the X1's home screen, now I've no idea if people who click your tag can see your full name or not but even if they can't it still isn't right So strike 2.
Okay, so I dl a few GwG titles I had reserved for the X1 and at 10mbps it took all day just to DL the 1st 5 and it's now 6 am the following day and it's still got 22 more to go. So I figure if this is the norm then Net providers (TWC.. Hint) better get to work on providing astronomical speeds at affordable prices.
Navigation: I had played the X1 before, but navigating today isn't what it was like just 6 weeks ago. But I'll figure it out.. I hope.
Update Controller: Huh, are you kidding me? The controller came bundled with the console and it, along with the console needs an update already??? I'll update it after everything else gets through Downloading, Installing and updating 1st... Perhaps after next Sunday, if everything else finishes by then!
All that aside for now. Because of BC and with over 300 Xbox 360 games in my collection. I'll put it to good use.
PS: I was under the impression that after loading a disc based game that you could play it without the disc for a certain time? That's not true at all for every time I tried. It asks for the disc!
