    From the maker of System Shock 1&2, Theif, and Deus Ex comes another masterpiece Bioshock. I just started DLing the demo right now off Live. If you even remotely like videogames and have XBL you will download this.

    I won't download it, even when I get my Xbox back from Microsoft. I don't like FPS. They are dull.

    Thanks for the heads up -gonna download it now.

    I think I'll have to delete the Stranglehold demo though.
    I still have TMNT in HD that I have to watch on the HDD.
    If the larger drive wasn't priced in the range of "You must be an idiot to buy this" I would get it.

    I hope I get past 7%. :)

    If you didn't like video games to begin with, why would you have a 360?

    Because it's more than just a gaming platform. It's an information source and has great tv/movie downloads to keep up to date with your favorite programs. Plus, it's an amazing platform for keeping in touch with you friends via its friend list and chat options.

    If I am unsure about a game, a demo can help, but usually doesn't. Bioshock I am absolutely sure I will buy, so no need to ruin the "newness" of when I bring it home by playing the demo.

    oh my, and here I've been using my computer OR my mobile phone to do that for the last few years...

    bleh. no matter what companies say to spruik their goods, consoles are games machines. everything else is just to get people to pick them over the competition.

    Unless you live overseas; then it's just a games machines with instant messages.
    And yes. Slowest DL I have ever seen on my 360.

    Does anyone know where the option is to have the 360 download files and then shut itself off?
