i'm not convinced by it yet so a demo would be nice. the studio's demise and shakey EDGE coverage doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

I doubt there will be a demo, the only thing I reckon a demo would is harm sales. I know it sad but I'm buying it because its a Halo game, it isn't the only reason, Ensemble make great games and hopefully this will be a swan song of sorts for them.

 

Yeah the EDGE previews havn't been the greatest but I'll still looking forward to do it. I can see it being the best RTS on any console but I'll guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I'm looking into changing my connection to xbox live to wired rather than wireless.

 

Anyone know of any good long ethernet cables that i can buy that would work well with the 360? Or do they all work bout the same?

 

ALso does it need to be a 'straight' or 'crossover' cable?

I just use a normal 30m cable and I have never had any problems with it at all. Just go into any PC/electronics store and they should be able to hook you up.

I've never seen it do that either. I imagine the sheer power and the elasticity of the net help it, though :heh:

Nice one.

 

I haven't been able to be constantly hooked up to Live myself yet because the supplied cable isn't quite long enough , so it's a pain and my Wii experience tells me that going wireless isn't ideal , and with the cost of the 360 adapter thing anyway , a longer ethernet cable should work out a lot cheaper.

Fucking hell. How tight. How much is that in £ then? Iv got no idea haha

 

It converts to about £6.80.

 

EDIT: Just had a thought. The gamertag u made, are u online with it (silver or gold membership)? If your not i don't think it costs as when u register for xbox live u can change it anyway.

No, you're only on Silver/Gold once you connect to LIVE for the first time. At the moment you don't have a subscription, interesting. You may be able to change it once you connect to XBL.
