    Well last week I finally broke down and bought an XBOX 360 because they really dropped in price now.

    It was a dilema in our house for a while because they couldn't agree which system to buy.

    One wanted the Xbox 360
    One wanted the Wii
    One wanted PS3

    So anyway I find the labeling on the games confusing. We have the old XBOXsystem and it was more straight forward.
    When it said 1-4 players, it meant 1-4 ppl could play at the same time against eachother.
    I got a few games for them that looked like they said 1-4 players but then when they went to play them you couldn't play against eachother. It was geared more to the XBOX LIVE which I don't plan on getting for them right now.
    They like playing games vs eachother.

    I got Crash Bandicoot: Crash of the Titans and it is kind of cool because you can play co-op with another person. I actually got into this one myself, and I am not a gamer. I couldn't jump very good so when the other person jumped I just jumped in their knapsack.

    I also bought Assassins Creed, Halo 3, Call of Duty 3

    Are there any good games you can recommend out there that you can play against/ vs other ppl without going on XBOX live?

    Well the B/f still is set on PS3 because of the Blue Ray player. He didn't want the XBOX because he said they are shit and I am going to regret it. If we get those red rings of death I will never hear the end of it. I figured the PS3 is still 400.00 and the 360 went down to 200.00 so I got it. I also found there were more games my younger one could play on it then the PS3 games.

    My older son actually looked at the Gears of War. So you can play that against eachother?

    I don't get it? Why are you getting a wii but you don't have the money to replace the TV?
    Do you mean because you need an HD tv for the PS3?

    Yeah the Wii does look fun. It caters to the younger kids too from the game selection I have seen. Even kindergarten kids can play it, so it's PERFECT FOR YOU....

    NO... not at this time anyway. That is why I am looking to find some good games that you don't have to play online to play against other ppl. I find a lot of the games are geared to playing
    online if you want to play against ppl. I want some good ones that we can just play against eachother offline.

    Hmm.....if you like good story and role playing, I highly recommend Mass Effect. Great game with a cinematic experience, and you get to affect the outcome/choose your dialogue and actions and affect the story and world.

    I am not a gamer at all. I did however get caught up in the Crash game.

    That is more the type of game I can handle, not too much thinking or skills on the controller.

    Out of curiosity how much do you pay for an account, and what are you getting for that?

    Xbox live is, in my opinion, the best part of the Xbox system. It only costs about $60/year. I'd say it's definitely worth it.. Jump on line, and you could experience the fun of shotting madanthonywayne with a shotgun on halo 3! That is, if I don't nail you first.

    (my username on Xbox live is the same as here).

    And the Wii is great for little kids. PS3? meh. Maybe when more games come out for it and the price drops a bit more.

    I pay monthly via my credit card, 5$ roughly. Not so bad and it's worth it.
