I know my wife reads my blog. (Hello dear). So I hope I'm not going to surprise her. There are a bunch of reasons why I like the Xbox-360
- Media's great on it - though I'm waiting for the wireless network adapter
- It's great to have no wires.
- Forza MotorSport with the wireless Force feedback steering wheel is great on it. Project Gotham 4 looks like it will be great.
- X-Box live arcade has some great games - my kids love watching Marble Blast Ultra.
Great is too small a word to describe what's coming. At E3 we showed a new trailer for the Halo. It looks... superb. I like the Halo themed X-box on that page but I can live with my white non-HDMI one for now. Have a look at the "ARMS Race" video linked to further down the page from Neill Blomkamp who is working on the Halo Movie (apparently).
Not withstanding, media, marble games, driving games and general living-room experience of the 360, the prospect of Halo 3 is just too exciting, and the real game play (as opposed to the X-box rendered cut-scenes) looks stunning. I can't wait.
