I am not the type of gamer that has bought every Live Arcade game, or spends hours earning gamerscore points, but I do use my Xbox 360 quite regularly, and so does my fiance, Sabine. Between the two of us, it is probably on around two hours a day, seven days a week.
I was one of the few that was able to get my console early on in its release cycle during the insane shortages. I am the guy you laughed at waiting at six in the morning in front of a local store hoping to get one of the machines, and I was able to. I am also, atleast so far, one of the people that have not experienced any major issues with the console.
I found out later on that I could not play DVD movies through my Xbox 360, as I was running into a problem because my television was too old, and so I had to plug my Xbox 360 in through the VCR, which made Macrovision come into effect to stop me from copying the movie onto a VHS tape.
I have not gone too game crazy, only renting games, or playing a demos to death, besides my early purchase of Kameo, as a platformer that I thought I would really like, more than I actually did.
My brother recently set me up with a second wireless controller, and so we have been playing just about everything we can in two player mode, and that is really when the Xbox 360 has come alive in this apartment. Sabine and I play tennis on the Xbox 360, when the weather is too bad, and since Top Spin is the only tennis I can actually win thanks to my gaming abilities and my horrible real life physical fitness.
I really can’t wait to see what new developments Microsoft comes up with for the Xbox 360, and how they integrate into my gaming which is more geared towards Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, and Sabine’s which is more interested in graphically simpler games like Zuma on the Xbox Live Arcade.
