    OK. Figured someone had to make this thread. And since I bought a 360 today, I figured that someone should be me. :D 

    Picked up an extra wireless controller, a tv adapter, and 2 games. Gears of War, and NFS Carbon. I played a few minutes of GoW, but Carbon won't work. Says I need an update for it. Is there anyway to get updates without connecting the system to the internet?

    I need to pick up a router, but won't be able to anytime soon. And switching the internet connection is a pain in the ass. Each time the modem is plugged into a different device, it has to be reset. The cable modem I have also runs my phone service. Because of this, it has a battery backup. To reset it, I have to call the cable company, and have them reset it from there. I know this because I work for the cable company's tech line and I do it 3 or 4 times a night. So each time, I switch stuff around, I would have call in.

    Edit: Looks like I found a way to update from the xbox forums

    Ok. so I found the update I need. Kinda weary of using a blank DVD for a 6MB file. Is it possible to update from a flash drive? If not, can there be anything else on the disk besides the update. maybe mp3s or movie files?

    Can you use a rewritable DVD? That way you could just wipe it and use it for something else.

    I initially had no interest in 360, but they're getting more and more awesome exclusives...so I'm pretty near to giving in myself.

    Let us know what you think!

    Flash Drives will not work, try using a rewritable that should do the trick OR just take your network cable and attach it to your 360 to install all the updates for GOW and NFS Carbon.

    Last but not least, CONGRATS on the purchase :thumb

    Congrats, I bet you can't wait to play Gears online, I've heard it's really fun. Do any 2005'ers get together for it like how we used to do on Halo 2?

    It would help if Gears of War was as good as Halo.


    Or Lost Planet.


    Which it absoloutely is not.

    Check the profile bitch, you'll see I've completed it and can return it back to you.
    And i see you haven't played much of Star Wars Lego.

    I was going to say that but then there would be endless whining and moaning and cries of fanboys.
