OK, you guys are probably all going to laugh at me, but I just played the XBOX360 for the first time last night. I have seen and messed with demos in stores, but a friend of mine has one and I was over there last night.

Man, it's COOL! I have to say the first thing that impressed me was the wireless controllers. I took a chance a few months back with my XBOX to get wireless controllers from Logitech, but the lag was just unacceptable. Not only is there no lag, but the reception and distance on the new controllers is amazing. Another cool thing I noticed is that if you are watching a DVD that is being played through the XBOX360, and you are signed into XBOX Live, a little pop-up appears if someone from your buddy list signs on.

I only played for about 10 minutes, but those features are only the tip of what I am sure is an awesome iceberg. I'm still sticking to my guns and waiting until my birthday, (July 20th), to get one, but it's sooo cool. On the negative side, I'm not impressed with the short supply of games out atm. However, this can be expected for a new platform, hopefully more sports games will be out shortly.

What do you guys think of yours so far who have them, what are your favorite features?

Yeah, my buddy has a 60" projection TV, but not HD :(

Still looked pretty sweet, but I'm hoping to get a HDTV before or when I buy the xbox as well.

Just wish I made enough $$$$ to keep up with my wants/desires :p

I have to agree the wireless controlers totaly rock! They weigh less than my old xbox controlers, and are great for turning the system on etc from bed :D

mmhmm, I think 37" is a bit out of my price range, I was thinking 30" when I decide to buy. Time will tell, as I should be up for a raise and a bonus around that time :)

£2,000.00 = $3,490.40 Can get them for half of that price, but i went for a brand i trust, and i also got pixel plus which gives a sharper image. could have got a 45" identical model without pixel plus for same amount.

We are the lazy generation no Doubt.

Incidently that is a well placed song in the Burnout3. A new Burnout is coming out soon for the 360.

Man my weekends are done.
