What to get depends on if you're gonna buy an Xbox Live Gold subscription for online multiplayer.Which of these games are better? I'm getting junior an Xbox360 for Christmas and he loves Halo.
Is Master Chief even in the ODST game at all?
Yeah, you need a gold subscription to play online. All systems have the basic silver membership which only allows you to buy and download free stuff through Live. I believe all systems also have a free one month trial for xbox live gold. It is a redeemable code card that should be bundled with the system instruction booklet. Either halo game should also bring a 48 hour trial membership. If you do buy a live membership later, I recommend buying the 12 Month Starter Set from amazon, its cheaper than everywhere else. It includes a headset, controller mini keyboard, and a racing game.Thanks for the tips, I'll need to take that into consideration.
He loves Master Chief, and I don't want him to get bored with the single play.
Do you have to buy the Gold subscription to play on line? Or is it just to create/mod your own rooms?
My wife found a HALO XBOX 360 ELITE on Craigs list, still sealed just minus the game. I can't really pull it out of it's hiding place to read if it comes with the Gold Subscription coupon, I've sen that offered in some of the non Halo bundles.
Oh, well, don't worry to much about it. The 20GB drive served me well for 3 years. The game save files are pretty small. If you feel like a bigger hard drive is needed later, you can always buy an upgrade.Cool thanks for the info.
Aw crap!!! it's a 20mg harddrive, not a 120mg
It's NOT the Elite console I thought it was :bawling:, but has headphones and 1 controller, a tiny hard drive and a trial membership .
Good choice! I've been buying my latest games through Amazon because their prices are a little bit less than other stores, and if you pay for shipping, it sometimes still comes out less than the regular in store prices. Also, check this site for video game deals from all retailers. You're gonna need it! :biglaugh:Went with Halo3, I'll get ODST for him... us.. later when it comes down in price, or after he gets bored of (3)
Thanks for the input guys, have a Merry Christmas
