cheers uncouth.

You get 1 months gold free when you sign up to Live so if you already have a live user profile and get an elite you wont get a months free. There's no code supplied.

yes but it is the biggest crock of shit i have played because it does not autosave at checkpoints and the mission rescuing the helicopter pilots is impossible because your ai teammates are the biggest, dumbest spastics ever.

Is there a way I can download and install an option file for all the real kits and stuff for the new PES on Xbox? I wanna start a master league but I want it to look good first.

Try on the PESFAN forums. I don't know how this would work nowadays as on the ps2 it needed to be done via a usb pendrive.

Ok, I've got Mass Effect playing upstairs so not sure if this is a hardware problem or not (though I'm fully aware what a pos the 360 can be in that regard), but I've started having 'disc can't be read' problems. It's taking me blowing into the XBox itself to get games onto the main screen and from that point I can play without an issue for hours. I'm assuming it's dust on the lens or something, anyone else experienced this and did the cleaning disc solve the problem?

Does the disk have minor scratches on?

Could be a laser error oroverheating of the DVD drive's receptors but I've had it on games that looked like they had no scratches on.

Is it only on mass effect, if so it's the game which was my issue. If not, contact microsoft.

I got forza 3 as well. It's amazing. Love all the online content with it, like the custom vinyk's and paintjobs, very cool.

Nah, tried it briefly on another game which is defo scratch free and got the same (had the same occasional problem with Arkham Asylum and figured it was just a faulty disc). Think it must be dust as I've got the game past that annoying pop-up and into the game itself after blowing inside the console. I'll try running a hoover over it and see if that helps. Cheers.

Edit.

Spoke to someone at support and they arranged a repair for me. In the process they asked me to detach my HD so it could be ready for pick-up. I slotted it back in just to see if I could get any play out of the game before they came to collect and now it's like nothing has happened. The game is being read and I've even managed to write it to the HD (which I hadn't been able to do before). Anyone 'fixed' their console like that?

Not never even thought to do that before so maybe the HD wasn't in correctly initially? They can be a pain to slot in.
