MS have killed it with their announcements. The 360 is the one to have no doubt. 1080p films streamed to your 360 as well. Cool

forza 3 out October. Where's GT5?! Laughing out loud

Game generally do you over more than the other high street shops out there mate. Best bet is probably flogging it on eBay, but I'm sure you know this already.

I find that either Gamestation or CEX give the better prices for cash on trade ins, over Game, so you're better off going to one of them mate. The CEX website also lists how much they buy it all for, so you can see if it's worth it. http://www.cex.co.uk/products/gaming/console%20gaming/xbox%20360%20consoles/?mode=buy

Also, does anyone have a spare Xbox 360 headset knocking around? I got back from uni on Saturday and went to have a game and a chat with one of my uni mates on Call of Duty, and my one's broken. Failing that, where's the cheapest place to get one?

This is an E73 Error, or will very quickly become an E73 Error (one red light). It is to do with the Ethernet port connection.

Bad news it is not possible to fix it permanently (tho i can tell you a way to temporarily fix it without opening the console) and it is not covered under Microsofts RRoD warranty as a RRoD is an E74 message. Microsoft will want about £90 to fix it.

Best thing to do, sell it on Ebay without the Harddrive to get some cash like i did and then buy a new Arcade console. See: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item;=160336546351#ht_500wt_1146
