    FINALLY have a 360, just in time for the onslaught of all the good games. :D  Also bought Dead Rising and Gears of War; two games I've wanted to play for a VERY long time.

    But here's the thing. I DEFINATELY want to go on Live with it, but I have a tiny problem (another then the ethernet cable being to short)...My brother. He wants an account as well, and we both don't look forward to sharing. And since I didn't have a Live membership on the first X-Box, I don't know how it goes.

    So...Is it possible for us to create seperate Live accounts, or do we either have to share a account or does one of us have to buy a seperate Gold package?

    Some games let a guest play with you online, but not a great many.

    They couldn't afford a price drop even if they wanted to right now.

    Anyway there are two solutions to your problem and you probably won't like either of them.

    1. (The easy way) Create one account and share a gamertag. Alot of games support the guest feature where you can have a friend signed in with you.

    Example:
    OriginalFatty
    OriginalFat(1)

    2. (The hard way) Create two accounts, like previously mentioned, and pay for two Xbox Live subscriptions. This way you will each have your own gamerscore and friends.

    There is one coming. It may not be August 1st, but it is coming.

    Every gaming company will deny a price cut until the day they announce it. No one ever announces a price drop until a day or two before it is supposed to happen, because it would pretty much stop all console sales.

    Actually they can. The $1b for the extended warranty came out of reserve funds (likely found beneath Bill Gates couch cushions), the cost of manufacturing the 360s had already dropped substantially as of a few months ago (the Cores were turning a profit, the Premiums about to), and there is a new, cheaper chipset called "Falcon" that will be hitting the stores in a few months.

    Mweh, I only paid 120 euros (my brother 80 and my mom and dead 260, they rule!).

    Oh, about this Dead Rising Non-HD Text Glitch thing...Is there a patch for it? Cause it's very annoying and makes my eyes hurt.

    IIRC, Capcom's response was something along the lines of love it or shove it.

    A little update: We have a shared account for now. When I have the money, I'll go and buy a 3-month trial card. But in the meantime, if anyone wants to know: Our gamertag is mcra. So if anyone want to PM me or play some Gears of War, just drop a line. Keep in mind that I won't necessary be the one playing, though.
