Finally managed to bag a premium xbox 360 today. Got PGR3 and Kameo.
Couldn't find a wireless network adaptor so no live for me yet. I've
only managed to hook it up via composite so far though. I'm getting my
new av amp on Weds so then I'll be able to play in hi-def via the
component lead. Pic through the composite is depressingly poor. The
picture glitches and makes a large gap appear at the bottom of the
screen. There's also a huge amount of colour bleed - I saw 2 cars
almost merge into 1 at one point. Won't really bother playing this yet
until I've got the amp sorted. Then I'll see some of you online.

Congratulations Nick!!

I'm loving having a 360 though its depressing that its going back to Microsoft for an exchange so soon.

I guess that means I'll loses all my game progress etc, ah well [:(]

See you online soon I hope.

u shouldnt loose the data as its on your live account, try and see if u can keep the hard drive and swap it when the new one arrives!

i'm lovin PGR3, completed it on medium, hard is ok, but hardcore is too much for me! lol

Yeah, I realise that data from my Live account won't be lost but they
specifically asked for me to include the hard drive and power supply
with the console.

The last thing I want is a call from them saying they can't process a
repair/replacement without the hard drive as it'll end up being weeks
before I'm fixed up with a new console.

It just means I'll have to play more PGR3 and Fifa2006 which isn't a bad thing as I could do with the practice!!

I'm going to order COD2 after many positive reviews but guess I won't
have it before my console leaves for Microsoft, something to look
forward to I guess.

If you're able to dude, I would go down to your nearest Game, first thing on Tuesday. Looks like they had a big delivery on Saturday, and at the Game I went to, they went selling that quickly.  I'm guessing people had just given up for the year, so you may be able to bag one before everyone else catches on!

Scart RGB with your CRT.

Component or VGA on the plasma this will enable you to use Hi Def graphics.

Nope, if you've got the premium pack you get a hi-def advanced
component cable. This has a composite connection also which is fairly
poor. If you're hooking it up to a crt tv you will need to buy and
advanced scart cable for the best quality.

360 has just turned up cardboard box is quite heavy and seems smaller than the display boxs in the shops, mine also came with the remote which is a nice bonus, looking forward to setting it up later.
