If your xbox breaks and you get a new one, you can download the game again for free. Xbox live keeps a record of your purchases. This is also true for PSN. As i have had replacement xbox 360s and ps3, i can confirm this is true.

So get downloading, its well worth it!!!
Me too.

Limbo does look very good. Well, at least the demo. Similar to Coma in terms of atmosphere.

But keep that in mind, when you get the new xbox, you need to make it as your default xbox. Otherwise when you play the downloaded game off line (Disconected from live) you will play only the demo version.
Sounds wierd but its true.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

The Force Unleashed 2 Demo comes out on marketplace this Tuesday.


I finished Halo Reach on Legendary recently. There were a few anoying bits but still doesn't have the longevity of the original Halo. I played that for ages. This one was over too quickly.

I've never been a great fan of the multiplayer to be honest. I'll be heading back to BC2 soon.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

Hi All,

I am looking to get an XBOX 360 and a Kinect when it comes out - any ideas of where to get the best bundle in Switzerland? Looking to include the Kinectimals game in the bundle at least.
Went into a shop in Geneva on Friday and asked what kind of deals they could do - 500CHF for the XBOX/KINECT, no games and a Swiss look of indignation that I dared be so cheeky as to ask for a deal and not be ripped off like everyone else.
Apologies if you've already discussed this.

Also any idea if I'll be able to use Skype on the XBOX?

Thank you
Chester

For buying one check toppriese.ch.

For the Skype question check xbox.com. I'm sure there will be some info there.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

Bought Medal of Honor recently and was not impressed with the campaign game. Too easy on hard, no real option to try different tactics you are basically led by hand through each level and it was quite boring. The game ended really suddenly as if the makers just thought, " let's stop it now I'm bored".

Muliplayer was ok. Graphics weren't too bad. Various game modes. Have only palyed a few games though.

Not as playable IMO as Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

Anyone already downloaded the Undead Nightmare DLC for Red Dead Redemption ? I heard a lot of good things about it.

Now just need to buy some MS Points...

Oh, and the NFS:HP demo just hit XBLA yesterday. Anyone downloaded and played already ?

Re: The X-Box 360 thread

Well, it's my turn to have an XBox 360 problem...overheating. Plays for approx 8mins then shuts down.

So, I ordered a new slim model

Also, just bought Forza 3 and Force Unleashed 2. Should be back online next week.

Going to keep the Medal of Honor simply for the Bad Company 3 beta thats due out in the future.

Selling Halo Reach ( see my other thread) if anyone wants it.

Did it in Legendary, not too hard but ok. Just not a big fan of the multiplayer side of it.

Console Language : yes. I know where that is.
But that does not change the language for the Xbox Live Menus and such.

Anyhow, do lemme know if you find it.

PS : Have fun with the slim.

The content will be as your gammertag profile. If your GT is from Switzerland you will get videos/content only in german/french/italian.
I have also this problem. Everything is in german even when i chose the language as English. And if i chose French as language, most of my games goes direct to French No chance at all to change it to english (unless i have the dash in english)
