I rarely buy games new, I always have a backlog of stuff to play so I have no reason to run out and pay $60 for something that will cost me $25 in a couple months. That being said, Forza 5 will be my first ever pre-order if it is released on the 360.

I also will not be purchasing the Durango/720/whateverthehell on release day. I will never, ever forgive Microsoft for releasing the 360 in such a slapped-together-get-it-out-the-door-now! state. The gall of charging $300 for something they KNEW could not properly dissipate heat (leading to imminent hardware failure) still pisses me off every time I think about it. I've already got the money put aside, but will check out reviews and sleep on it for a few weeks before jumping in. Best case scenario is they sell out everywhere and create a huge backlog, forcing me to wait and see how it performs over time.

But yes, I am very excited to hear the official announcement and see just what we're dealing with here. And who knows, maybe they have come up with something so mind-blowing I will beg them to take my money. Ok, that's not likely, but I can hope...

I guess im lucky. My xbox's manufacture date is 2005-12-07 bought it used for 100$ and this is how I maintain it. However I used to have the top taken off it and only once has it given me the RROD. Also reapplied thermal paste as the stuff that was on there was crusty and poorly done. Didn't fail me during the BF3 beta only until I tried Modern Warfare1 and kaput.

that would be awesome but I'd be lucky to stay married if that happen.

Well it was supposed to be for my car because I thought my clutch was going bad. I can't install it myself as I don't have a garage or jack stands that could raise the car high enough.
Turns out it was just nasty fluid in the reservoir. I do wonder what driving around with that combo would've felt like every day.

How do I bring my car up on my tree?

Is it some sort of hidden garage in the sky that I don't know about? Like in mario where your running and on a roll then suddenly your running on clouds with smiley faces

I'm excited but hope I don't get let down. There are a lot of rumors I'm not liking. I just hope forza 5 comes out on 360.

Today's the day bounce

I really hope they show the controller and that it's fundamentally similar to the current one. If there are changes/additions, I hope it's handled like the PS4's. It just better not be a picture of me ...

So the specs are kind of cool, kind of not. They are going to charge a fee to use a pre owned game on your console. and it's not backwards compatible. The graphics look good tho.

The detail for forza 5 looked similar to forza 4's opening. I liked the idea of more people playing at one time but don't know if my ip could support it.
