Yesterday, we joined the ranks of Xbox 360 owners. Even more exclusively, we are a proud owner of an Xbox 360 Elite console. We received it as a joint birthday gift yesterday from my mother (Lindsey’s birthday is tomorrow, mine is in October). As an added gift, Chris & Kelly purchased The Orange Box for Lindsey’s birthday. To complete our day, we rounded up all of the games we no longer cared about and traded them in for a brand new second controller from GameStop!
We already had Halo 3, as I purchased the Legendary Edition last year, forseeing a time when I would have a 360. We had Crackdown, but it was one of the games we traded in for the new controller. We have Fable II, as it came with the Elite.
This puts our game list, so far, at:
Halo 3, Fable II, and The Orange Box (which includes Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal).
Once we had it set up, Lindsey started trying to find a new gamer tag. After about half an hour of attempts, she finally found one she was happy with. She went through her setup process, and relinquished the controls to me. I spent about 5 minutes searching for a gamer tag before I found one that worked for me, then I finished my setup process. Afterwards, we set up Netflix to stream movies to the 360, and got started!
It’s been a blast so far. We’ve spent the whole day playing Halo 3, Portal, and various Live Arcade games and demos. Our Xbox Live Gamertag pages are in our links section to the right of the page. See you guys on Xbox Live!
