As for recommending games, if you dig shooters then you have quite a good selection of quality games to check out.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (A must have FPS)
Gears of War (Chainsaw Bayonets!)
Those two are a great start, but if you find yourself wanting more..
Battlefield: Bad Company ('splosions! by the barrel full)
Call of Duty: World at War (If you fancy yourself some WWII mayhem)
Gears of War 2 (If you liked the first)
Theres still a few more games I could mention but I think the above list is solid enough. Oh and I recommend getting a Quick Charger Kit later on, it's better than buying batteries.

On closer inspection, it turned out to be a NiMH batter, which (IIRC) are infamous for memory effect. Other people's mileage may vary, but that's my two cents.
The borrom line (as i see it) MS cut quite a few corners on the 360.... but it's still the clear winner this generation.

I've had to send TWO different Xboxes back to Microsoft, one of which was the Halo3 exclusive box.
I am enjoying my PS3 by default and have no issues thus far (knocks wood).

My nephews have had a 360 for a couple of years now. They play it all the time and have never had an issue with it. So not all 360's suffer from the red ring provlem. As far as I am concerned, if you want a system for gaming then buy a 360. If you just want to watch a movie, however, go buy a regular (Toshiba/RCA/Sanyo/Magnavox/offbrand) DVD player. I'm not saying the PS3 doesn't have some nice games. They just don't have as many as the 360 and, since I hate Sony, I will never buy or promote one of their products.

If you wan to save money get the 360 with HDD. Also I noticed that when I watch a DVD on my 360 like "Wall-E" for example it looks much better than it does on my regular DVD player.
Both systems are great and serve the basic purpose of good ol' fashion gaming...
Online is Highly recommended, you can download demos at the push of a button. nuff' said

"As far as the 'red ring of death'...I have no idea what you guys are talking about. Something that goes wrong with the system due to overheating???"
I love my Xbox 360 but it has died four or five times in less than three years. When your having a hard wear issue the green circle on the front of the Xbox will change to three red bars. Each time this happens your have to call the Microsoft's support staff in India and send your 360 to Texas to be fixed. It can take up to three weeks to get your 360 back. One nice thing is that you do get a free month of Xbox live for your trouble. The bad is that after your three year hard wear warranty runs out your out of luck.... I've heard that 8 out of 10 Xbox owners have had this problem at some point.

I thank you all who shot out opinions, gonna go with a 360 Elite and found the Res Evil 5 version at my local Wally World today on my lunch hour. Seems like a good deal! I'm turning a spare bed room into my 'Man Cave Of Destruction'...Xbox with a nice new crisp flat screen (which is better than the TV I watch nightly), surround sound and a kick ass lazy boy. Throw in some Joes, Sports memorabellia, real guns and bows, a few stuffed dead things and BANG!!!! MAN CAVE!!! Thanks again!

if you get the xbox you will need the hard drive , i would suggest getting a package that comes with a month free of xbox live gold and see if you like .. you might not be into and you save your self the montly fee / subscription. if you have a connection xbox live silver is free , basically all the perks of demo's , game content and all that but you cant play online with multiplayer. also check what xbox you are getting , i dont know much about it anymore but some of them didnt come with the surround sound hook up , i got the elite and it does but im not sure what others do ..
i have both xbox and ps3 , i prefer my ps3 becuase im more of a movie / audio person so i got it for the blu ray , optical surround sound and wireless connection.. and you can change the hard drive whenever you want
No Your Right - i make all this stuff up

I didn't read the whole thread to see if the poster actaully picked up the X-box 360 yet.
I myself waited until I could get an X-box 360 elite that was made with the jasper chip. This is supposed to be the fix all from Microsoft for the Red ring of death issue. Most systems made after January 10th this year are going to have the jasper chip.
I waited until I could get the elite system as well. The word on the street is that Elite's with the 120 GB hard drive are going to no longer be mass produced because they don't sell enough. They still have systems that sit on the shelf with the Christmas bundles with Kung fu Panda and Lego Indiana Jones. They are going to only release them as special bundles in the future. Bundles like the resedent evil 5 blood red one that I got.
I love my 360, it runs smooth. I was upset when I found out that my $400 system didn't have build in wi-fi. But I'm getting an adapter from a friend for free. I say that anything worth doing is worth doing right in the long run.
That is why I never bothered with a PS3. PS3=Fail.
Blue-Ray will also = fail soon. Digital format is the way of the future and the movie companies know it.
