    The X-Box 360 is the first of the next generation gaming system to be released
    with at least 6 months before Nintendo or Sony is releasing their Revolution
    and Playstation 3.
    
    The reason why Iīm making a X-Box 360 FAQ is to make some people less confuse
    about things that have to do with the X-Box 360.
    
    ===============================================================================
    = 1. What is the X-Box 360?                                                   =
    ===============================================================================
    
    The X-Box 360 is Microsoftīs second attempt to release a gaming system and rule
    the world...
    The first X-Box was not a flop but still not a big success. Now people will
    start to send me angry emails saying that Iīm a big idiot, but if you look at
    the aw facts youīll see that a big cut of the systems was modified and used
    to play illegally downloaded games and used as media centers to play movies on,
    
    This is something that Microsoft discovered, and decided to make it harder to
    do the same thing with the X-Box 360.
    They have gone down on a lower level this time to prevent piracy, and why would
    you modify your X-Box 360 to be a media center when itīs already a media center
    from the box?
    
    And this is the really first step into trying to include the High Definition
    into the gaming world.

    The specs are truly looking good, and are getting fanboys drooling all over the
    world. But remember, itīs the games that decides if the system is great or bad.

    - 2.2. 2 Systems released                                                     -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Microsoft decided to release two versions of the X-Box 360. The ordinary
    System (called Premium) and the Core System. To say it easy, the Premium system
    is a X-Box 360 with some accessories while the cheaper Core system only has
    what you need to start and play the X-Box 360.
    Some say that the Premium system is the luxury model.
    Iīm saying that the Core model is released just so Microsoft can say that the
    releaseprice was lower, and to trick player that know nothing to later buy the
    accessories for a higher price.
    The difference between the systems are:
    
       X-Box 360 Premium            X-Box 360 Core
       Console with                 Console
       Premium Chrome Finish
       Hard Drive
       Wireless Controller          Wired Controller
       Xbox Live Headset
       Component HD AV Cable        Composite AV Cable
       Ethernet Cable
    
    The first launch of the Premium version will also get a Bonus Media Remote.
    Itīs smaller and have fewer buttons then the official one.
    
    
    So exactly what can you do with your ordinary and Core system?
    
                                       X-Box 360    X-Box 360 Core

    Connect an MP3 player              Yes          Yes
     and listen to music*

     digital pictures from a
     Windows XP-based PC
    Use up to 4 wireless
     controllers simultaneously        Yes          Yes
    
    Play X-Box games                   Yes          No/Yes***
    Save games and content             Yes          No/Yes****
    Game online with Xbox Live Gold**  Yes          No/Yes****
    Join Xbox Live Silver for free     Yes          No/Yes****
    Voice chat with friends over       Yes          No/Yes*****
     Xbox Live
    
    * Not every single MP3 player and Digital Camera is supported
    ** 1-month trial of Xbox Live Gold included
    *** Only Yes if you have bought a hard drive.
    **** Only yes if you have bought a hard drive or memory unit.
    ***** Only yes if you have bought a headset and hard drive or memory unit.
    
    
    So once again, you can play games with the Core system.
    You canīt save, but you can play your games.

    The North American launch date is November 22 2005. The official price will be
    399.99$ for the Premium system and 299.99$ for the Core System (some stores
    will just drop the 99 cents on the price).
    I think that Microsoft are officially only releasing the Core and Premium
    system, but a lot of resellers are adding games and accessories and are making
    their own bundles/packages. I will try to list the most known bundles just for
    fun.

    They removed the Omega bundle because some of the games included in it (4 I
    believe) got a later release date. It also existed a Omega Bundle with the Dell
    plasma screen (like the Ultimate pack from Gamestop) for a price of 4499.68$.
    It now seems that Gamestop still has a Omega bundle that is exactly the same
    as the Ultimate pack, but it will be shipped some month after the release.

    The X-Box 360 must be the first gaming system (if not THE first, one of the
    first) that releases games and accessories weeks before the gamint system.
    This way people could feel the controller and look at the DVD disc long before
    they discovered that they wouldīnt get the gaming unit until January thanks to
    the shortage. I will try to list the official dates for the things that was
    released before the system, but they can be +- some days depending on where
    in USA you live. Some stores started to sell some stuff earlier, som stores
    started to sell some stuff later. This is the American dates.

      It can also be used as composite cable for standard TV output, if your TV

    Xbox 360 S-Video AV Cable  -29.99$

      moment) which is perfect for your TV that has a Scart connector.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The official controllers.
    
    Xbox 360 Wired Controller  -39.99$
      Take the X-Box COntroller S, give it a little more ergonomic form, add a
      glowing Guide button in the middle, place the Start and Back buttons on each
      side of the Guide button, move the Black and White buttons to the shoulders,
      add a Integrated heatset port, make it as a USB-controller and you have a
      X-Box 360 controller. Oh, the cable is 9 foot.

      Take the Xbox 360 Wired Controller and cut the wire. This is the result.

      controllers at the same time on one X-Box 360 system. You can use up to 20
      controllers at the same time withouth them interfere with each other, perfect

      You can adjust the vibration feedback to save battery life.
      And the best part is that you still can use the headset for X-Box Live, even
      if it is a wireless controller.
    
    
    I just have to add one thing about the Guide button. With it, you can access
    the dashboard whenever you want. This means that you can stream your own music
    instead of playing the one in the game, it lets you look at pictures when you
    take a pause from playing (looking at a scanned guide?), and it allows you to
    enable a chat communication with your friends online, even if you are playing
    a offline game.

    - 5.3. WTH did he say?                                                        -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now that you have taken a fast look at the shortie list, you will ask yourself
    "WTH does he mean with this?". SO here Iīll explain what I really meant up
    above.
    The first row is the title of the game. The second row tells what kind of game
    it is, and whoīs developing it. And remember I said developer, not releaser.
    The third row is the ESRB rating. This means that kids are not supported to
    play games that are rated 17 years. The ratings are Everyone (age 6+),
    Everyone 10+ (age 10+), Teen (age 13+), Mature (age 17+) and Rating Pendent
    (which means they havīnt rated it yet).
    The rows after this is different depending on what game it is, but mostly it
    starts with how many players that can play it. The ones with a * in front means
    that it is used for online play. Iīll list them all below so you can see what
    they really means.
    
      Players 1-2  This tells us how many players that can play on one system at
                   home. Each players must have one controller.
      Co-op        This means that the players can play cooperative. With other
                   words, you are all on the same team trying to beat the game.
      HDTV 720p    This shows what TV mode the game is supposed to be played in.
                   It can be 480i, 480p, 720p or 1080i. But it doesīnt really
                   matter since the system transform the output to fit your TV.
      System Link 2-16  This means that you can use more then one X-Box 360 to link
                        to eachothers, allowing more players to play against
                        eachothers at home.
      Storage Device  This means that the game was developed with the thoughts that
                      the users have a harddrive in their unit.
      Supports: 480i 480p 720p 1080i  This means that the game can be run in all TV
                                      modes. Stupid to write since the unit is
                                      doing this itself, no matter what game it is.
    
      *Content from Marketplace  This means that you can download extra stuff to
                                 your game from the marketplace. Some are free,
                                 some cost you cash.
      *Friends     This means that you probably can have a friendlist in the game
                   for your online friends.
      *Players 2-8  This shows how many players you can play with online.
      *Voice       This game supports that you can talk directly to your friends
                   when you play with them.

    - 5.4. Backward Compatibility                                                 -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    With Backward Compatibility, you can put in your original X-Box game and play
    it on your X-Box 360. Not only that, every game will be playable in high
    definition. This means that every original X-Box game will be upscaled to 720p
    and 1080i and taking advantage of X-Box 360’s anti-aliasing capabilities.
    With other words, we will se a picture that is clearer and crisper than what
    the original X-Box could handle. This sounds like heaven, but there are some
    small things that you must think of...
    
    1. You need a harddrive. Since X-Box 360 is using software to emulate each
       X-Box game, they need somewhere to store the software. It would fill up a
       memory card fast, so a harddrive is the only way. Since most people are
       getting a harddrive with their units, itīs not such a big problem.
    
    2. Not all games are compatible. The software preinstalled on all harddrives
       (it doesīnt matter if you buy the Premium version or buying the harddrive
       separatly) are today supporting 200+ games for the North American version.
       The European version is having fewer games supported, and the Japanese
       version have twelve (12) games supported as it is now (The lists is listed
       below).
       So what will you do if your game is not on the list (for example Burnout 3)?
       The answer is easy, update the software and hope that itīs included in the
       next release. Microsoft will continue to add games. And itīs easy to update.
       Pop in your disc in your X-Box 360, connect to Xbox Live (Gold or Silver
       doesīnt matter) and it will download it if itīs there. If you havīnt Xbox
       Live, you can download a file to your computer, burn it to a disk and
       install it from the disk. Xbox.com will also give you the possibility to
       send you a CD for a nominal shipping and handling fee (some time after the
       launch date). There is a possibility that updates can be included in games
       that you buy, but itīs to early to tell now.
    
    3. Games using Xbox Live. It will be possible to play X-Box games supporting
       Xbox Live with your X-Box 360 Live account. And you can play cross-platform.
       So you can play Halo 2 on your X-Box 360 against your friend that only owns
       a X-Box.
       But there is a negative thing...
       You canīt transfer downloaded content from your X-Box to your X-Box 360.
       This means that you must download it again. All free downloadable content
       for original Xbox games plus premium content for Halo 2 will be available
       on Xbox Live Marketplace for free. But if you payed for some premium content
       you must pay for it again if you want it on your X-Box 360.
    
    4. Saves. As with X-Box contents, you canīt transfer saves from your original
       X-Box. So you must complete the games again.
    
    5. Xbox Live. All current Xbox Live accounts transfer seamlessly to X-Box 360
       as Xbox Live Gold accounts. You'll keep your gamertag and the friends,
       stats, and reputation that you've built up over the years.

    - 5.4.1 Backward Compatibility USA list                                       -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Remember, this is the Launch list, more games will be added later and probably
    have when you are reading this.
    Games added will have a * in front of the name.
    But since Microsoft removed the update, you canīt play games with a * in front
    of the name at the moment. The reason is that they messed somethign up so you
    could only play Halo 2 in a 4x3 screen.

    = 6. Your TV                                                                  =
    ===============================================================================
    
    So you got yourself a X-Box 360. And you have a TV. But how will you hook it up
    to get the best picture? How can you hook it up? What is HD and what is 720pi
    and whatever everybody is talking about? I will try and answer everything.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 6.1. 720pi? 1080i?                                                          -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p are different TV standards. 480i and 480p is
    not High Definition. 720p is not really High Definition, but almost.
    And 1080i and 1080p are High Definition. Itīs like saying that the higher
    number, the higher resolution is it using, and the better picture weīll get.
    
    480i: This is your basic non-HD TV-screen. It blurr the picture a little, which
          is why you got a better picture with your games on a TV instead of on
          your monitor some years ago, before the graphic cards got better.
    
    480p: This is a progressive scan type, which means it gives a clearer
          picture/text. If you donīt have an HDTV, this is probably what you want
          your games to run in.
    
    720p: This is not considered to be "true" High Definition because it can not
          produce a extremely high resolution. When I wrote this, I didīnt knew
          that I would get so many mails about this. Some saying Iīm wrong, some
          saying itīs correct, some saying itīs almost true. So what is correct?
          720p is great. and so is 1080i. And 1080p is even better.
          But for games with the TVīs today, 720p is better then 1080i in most
          cases. So if you get a TV today, get one that at least supports 720p.
          If you get a TV in the future, get at least the second generation of
          1080p.
          This IS a standard today. Most DLPīs, LCDīs and
          Plasma-TVīs can handle this.
          This is better on bigger TVīs then 1080i, since 720p are showing moving
          images better.
    
    1080i: This is true High Definition. Too bad nothing can run it perfectly.
           Itīs using a big 1920 x 1080 resolution o_O
           Most HDTVīs are supporting this standard.
           About nothing can run it perfect, the way it draws the picture makes
           it leaving small trails (or as people calls it, a ghost effect) if the
           picture is moving fast, on bigger TVīs. If you have a smaller TV, say
           28"-34", you will not see it.
    
    1080p: This is the best you can get. This format is only used through HDMI-DVI
           cables and produce the best picture possible. The only issue with this
           is that nothing as of yet really use it. Harddrive stores videos can
           send a 1080p signal to a screen, but no broadcast is sent through this
           yet. Both BluRay and HD-DVD will be able to run in 1080p.
           The X-Box 360 is NOT supporting 1080p.
    
    
    So what does this have to do with the X-Box 360?
    You see, the X-Box 360 supports the 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i standards.
    Most games will prefer to run in 720p (Perfecr Dark Zero is the first one that
    prefer 1080i). But what if your old TV doesīnt support it?
    This is the big thing with the X-Box 360. It will scale up or down the picture
    to give you the best you can get on your set.
    Yes the picture will look worse on 480p then on 720p, but itīs better then
    having no pictures at all.
    Now you think that upscaled pictures mostly are ugly. You are correct.
    And Microsoft know this, so thereby they have spent alot of money to make the
    upscaling beautiful. And they did it.
    
    Iīve got some letters saying that 720 is always better then 1080. This is up
    to everyone to see what they like best. But I still believe that if you have a
    smaller TV like said before, 1080 seems to look better.
    But try both and discover what yourself like most.
    I will probably get more letters now, but wait some years until 1080p is
    standard. 1080p will look even better then both 720p and 1080i ^^
    ...why doesīnt it exist 720i?
    
    ...and I still get emails about this. Ask your TV salesman, they can help you,
    and they know more about this them me.
    
    And to make an end to this, this is correct info from Dee about everything.
    
    The difference between i and p is interlaced versus
    progressive.  The reason i looks blurred is because it takes the
    resolution of the screen, chops the vertical in half, and sends half of
    the image at a time.  It was made like that because (1) at the time,
    nothing was powerful enough to support 1080p and (b) thinking on
    broadcast signals, the US standard tv resolution is interlaced anyway. 
    They did this to the HD signals to preserve bandwidth.  HD television
    video files are HUGE and interlacing cuts this size in half.  The allure
    is big for companies...less work and a bigger number.
    You said you weren't sure which is "better."  Well, it depends on how
    you look at it.  If you go simply by the numbers, then 720p is higher
    resolution than 1080i, and 1080p is higher resolution than 720p.  This
    is because 720p = progressive, so 720 vertical lines of the image
    information, 1080i is interlaced so 540 lines of vertical image
    information, 1080p is progressive so 1080 lines of vertical information.
     They play games with you like that because the companies want to make
    bigger numbers so the average consumer will go "Oooo, bigger!  Shiney!"
    and buy it.  1080i looks better at times simply because the pixels are
    smaller.  The smaller the pixels used to create the image are, the
    better the image looks, but keep in mind that while the pixels are
    smaller, you're not getting as many of them as you would on 720p.  I
    personally prefer 720p or 1080p, but right now 720p is the most mature
    out of the two, so I go with that.
    Televisions might support 480p, but television signals are not sent in
    that strength unless you have satelite (then you can get HD as well) or
    digital cable (also now has HD).
    
    Thanks Dee.

    - 6.2. What Video cables will I use?                                          -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    So you got yourself a X-Box 360 and a HDTV. But what cables will you use to
    hook up the unit with your TV? I will list all possible solutions you can do.
    
    RF - Radio Frequency
      The RF is the round hole with a smaller round hole inside. This is what you
      hooked up your Nes with, if you are so old so you know what a Nes is.
      This is the worst you can use. Itīs so bad so it doesīnt even exist any
      Xbox 360-specific RF adapter, so you need to buy a adapter that converts
      composite or S-Video into a RF signal. But you will loose picture details
      if you do it. If your TV only supports RF, do yourself a favor and buy
      something that at least supports S-Video or composite, the change will be
      like comparing Super Mario Bros 1 with Super Mario Bros 3.
      Or use the VGA cable on your monitor instead.
    
    Composite
      This is a cable with three wires in one, ending with a white, red and yellow
      hat. The yellow one carries the video signal, and red and white carries the
      sound. This is a nice cable, and should be standard these days.
    
    S-Video
      This one is round and has some smaller sticks inside.
      It carries the video signal in more parts, which means that we get more
      details and a improved brightness. If your TV has both Composite and S-Video,
      choose S-Video.
    
    Scart
      A scart is a rectangle with 21 small dots inside. If you live in USA, there
      is a 83% chance that you have never heard about Scart earlier, since itīs
      only popular in Europe. And you know how hard it is to try a European
      standard to be standard in USA, itīs impossible.
      The thing with Scart is that it can send a RGB, Composite or S-Video signal.
      This means that it is as good as a Composite or S-Video, depending on what
      signal it carries. If it carries a RGB signal, it looks better then both
      S-Video and Composite. Since the European version is not released yet, it is
      unknown what signal it will carry. In most times, it will choose whatīs best
      for the system automatically.
    
    Component
      Component cables looks like a composite cable that have taken steroids.
      Instead of using one cable for the video, it uses three cables for video,
      which gives us a better pictures. It supports 480p, 720p, and 1080i, while
      Composite and S-Video only supports 480. Higher modes means a nicer picture.
    
    VGA
      Looks exactly as your monitor connector.
      It lets you connect your X-Box 360 to a monitor. A monitor can easily display
      720p and 1080i with no problem at all, even if it is some years old.
      The negative part is that it is so small, a ordinary TV is in most cases
      bigger then your monitor.

    ===============================================================================
    
    I will make a shortie on how to install your system.

    - 7.1. Place it out                                                           -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    First you must make sure that you place your X-Box 360 on a safe place.
    Place it somewhere where it is: Flat and level.
                                    Stable and not likely to tip over.
                                    Not likely that the unit can slip or slide off.
                                    Clean and free of dust and debris.
    And make sure that all four feet of the unit is in contact with the surface.
    Donīt place cables and cords so children and pets can trip over them.
    
    Donīt place the unit so any ventilation openings are blocked on the unit or the
    Power suply.
    Donīt place it in a sofa or othersoft surface.
    Donīt place them in a confined space, such as a bookcase, rack, or stereo
    cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
    Donīt place them near any heat sources, such as radiators, heat registers,
    stoves, or amplifiers.
    Donīt place them in smoky or dusty locations, this can damage it.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 7.2.  Connecting the unit                                                   -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Have your unit turned off. Connect your AV cable into your unit and connect it
    to your TV. If you are using a HD, set the switch at the AV port connector to
    480p, 720p, or 1080i, depending on what your TV supports.
    When you turn on your unit later, you can change your display settings from the
    System area. Select the appropriate screen size and resolution for your TV.
    
    Connect the power cord into your unit. Be sure to only use the official one
    that follows the unit.
    
    Insert the controller connector into a controller port. If you have a wireless
    controller, put in the batteries and hold Start or the Guide button until it
    starts. When you start your X-Box 360, press and release the connect button on
    the unit. Then press and release the connect button on the controller. The
    controller is now locked into that unit, even if you turn it off.
    You can do it again on another XBox 360. but then you will loose the lock on
    the first one.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 7.3. Starting it up the first time                                          -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Once you have hooked it up to a TV, all accessories are ready and you have
    eaten your food, itīs time to start your X-Box 360.
    Turn on the power, and it starts up.
    And you must choose a default language!
    Choose what you want, and press A. And now the unit is ready o be used.
    Now you are ready to make your own Gamer profile. It is with this that you can
    do everything with your X-Box 360. Keep your settings on the machine, play
    with your friends online, and so on.
    You can create a profile in three ways. The fastest is to choose Create an
    Offline Profile. If you already have an Xbox Live membership, choose I Am a
    Member of Xbox Live. Or if you are not yet a member of Xbox Live but know
    you are going to join, choose I Want to Join Xbox Live.
    Remember that your unit must be connected to the Internet with cable or DSL
    before you are using Xbox Live.
    
    After creating a profile, you can go to the System area of the Dashboard
    (the dashboard is where you are) to change the settings, like change language,
    time, audio, display, and automatic shutdown.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Choose Create an offline profile.
    Now you are at Gamer Profile Name, so enter a name for your gamer profile.
    While it's most convenient if this matches your gamertag—which you may or may
    not have yet—you can easily modify your gamer profile name later (The Gamertag
    is your oneandonly name when you are using Xbox Live).
    Now select a gamer picture. Take the one you like most, you can get more later.
    
    And you are done. Now you can play games or just look around on the dashboard.
    Or change some options. More info about the dashboard later.

    So you already had a Xbox Live account on your X-Box?
    
    Collect some basic information.
    You must write  your gamertag, your birthdate, and the e-mail address and
    password associated with your Microsoft .NET Passport account.
    And make sure your Xbox 360 console is connected to Xbox Live.
    
    From the initial setup Gamer Profile screen, select I am a member of Xbox Live.
    Select Gamertag and follow the on-screen instructions to activate your current
    membership.
    
    Sidenote:
    When you activate your existing Xbox Live account for use with X-Box 360, you
    are not creating an additional membership. You are simply adding to the one
    you already have. Youīll keep your gamertag, your friends list, and other
    key information. And youīll have full Xbox Live Gold privileges for the
    remainder of your membership period. As long as you maintain the same gamertag,
    you can play on both the original Xbox and the Xbox 360 systems using the same
    Xbox Live membership.
    
    Youīll be asked to select preferences for language, country/region, time-zone,
    and Xbox Live promotions. You will also select your gamer picture and Xbox Live
    Gamer Zone. You can easily modify these settings at any time.
    
    And you are done. Now you can play games or just look around on the dashboard.
    Or change some options. More info about the dashboard later.
    
    By the way, it wonīt accept you if your age is below 18, even if you have had
    Xbox Live for some years...

    gamertag is not available) and supply information like the e-mail address and
    password associated with your Microsoft Passport Network account, your
    country/region, your language, your name, and your phone number.
    
    If you do not have a Microsoft Passport Network account you will have the
    opportunity to create one, which requires supplying a valid e-mail address
    and choosing a unique password.
    When prompted, select your desired membership type from the list of options.
    This means that you will choose a Gold or Silver membership.
    Xbox Live Gold memberships are paid memberships that require you to supply
    valid credit-card information.
    Follow the remaining steps: enter a contact address, choose a gamer picture
    and Xbox Live Gamer Zone, set your communication preferences for Xbox 360
    promotions, and select a time zone and daylight-saving option.

    To make it easy, it exist two levels of Xbox Live. One free, called Silver, and
    one that costs, called Gold. The biggest differences are that Gold gets access
    to new stuff earlier in the marketplace, that they can play games online and
    chat with more than one person at a time. I will list what the differences are
    below:
    
    Xbox Live Gold Membership:
    
    Play your multiplayer games online with the online gaming service.
    Use the new TrueSkill Matchmaking system to play against opponents with
      similar skills.

      sportsmanship, abilities, and conduct to influence matchmaking.

    Go online free of charge.
    Register a unique gamertag and set up your individual gamer card to keep
      track of your gaming accomplishments.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Here you can download arcade games to run on your X-Box 360. Some of them cost,
    some of them are free, and it exist free demos of most of the ones that costs.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The marketplace. Here you can download trailers, demos, themes for your
    dashboard and player profile, Xbox Live Arcade, Game content and much more.
    You don+t know what game content is? it is upgrades and extras to your existing
    games. For example new maps in Halo, new cars in Need For Speed, new stars in
    sportgames and so on.
    
    And best of all, a Download history. So if you accidentally deleted something,
    you can mostly download it again for free.
    
    Free? Yes it exist both free stuff and stuff that costs to download.
    
    You are using Microsoft Points. You can get these by buying them in cards in
    a store, using credit card online or winning them online somehow.
    It seems that they cost 20$ for 1600 points, or 1.25 cents per point.
    
    One good question is how long stuff will stay on the marketplace. Will we still
    be able to download the trailer to Halo 3 when Halo 6 is released?

    So you want to listen to ABBA when you play Perfect Dark Zero? No problems.
    First you need to get the music to your unit. There is 3 ways that I can think
    of doing that.
    1. Rip it from your CD. This is so much faster then what it was on the original
       X-Box.
    2. From USB. Connect your portable music player or memory stick and you can
       stream the music from it. It supports the MP3, Wav and WMA format.
       It also supports playlists in wpl and m3u format.
       You shall be able to download a patch that allows you to listen to ACC
       music, as long as it was NOT downloaded frm iTunes. But MP3 in your IPod
       works great.
    3. From PC. Stream it from your XP SP2 PC or XP Media Center Edition 2005.
       Connect your X-Box 360 to your home network and you can stream your music.

    Sorry guys, this is in next update >_>
    But I can tell that you need a Windows Media Center 2005-based PC to stream
    movies to your 360, and it seems to only support:
    
    Video:
    Windows Media Video (WMV) 7, WMV 8, and WMV 9.
      Maximum resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p).
      Windows Media Audio Standard or Windows Media Audio Pro audio.
      WMV content may be Windows Media DRM-protected.
    MPEG-1 with MPEG-1 layer I or II audio.
    MPEG-2.
      Maximum resolution of 1920x1080 (1080i).
      AC-3 or MPEG-1 layer I or II audio.
    WMV Image 1 (Photo Story 1 & 2), and WMV Image 2 (Photo Story 3).
    
    
    Audio:
    Windows Media Audio (WMA) 7 through WMA 9.
      WMA Standard content may be Windows Media DRM-protected.
    WMA Professional.
      WMA Professional content may be Windows Media DRM-protected.
    WMA Lossless.
      Windows Media DRM protected WMA Lossless is not supported.
    MP3.
    Other formats that have a DirectShow decoder installed on the host computer
        that outputs pulse code modulation (PCM) audio.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Press the Guide button, Personal Settings, then Themes.
    So easy is it to change Dashboard Themes o_O

    - 9.7 Extern harddrive                                                        -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you take a harddrive, format it in FAT32, use it in a USB 2 ATA adapter and
    inserts it into your X-Box 360 USB drive, you can stream music and photos from
    the harddrive.
    You can NOT save files on it, since USB is read only.
    You can NOT watch movies from it.
    
    Think of it as a big MP3 player for your own music in your 360 game whenever
    you want.

    ===============================================================================
    
    When you play your games, you can earn Gaming Achievements (I think all 360
    games have those). I will later include all achievements here.
    Activision did this back in 1982 on the Atari 2600. If you took a photograph
    on the TV with a topscore and sent it in, you got a nice cloth badge.
    
    Most games can give you around 1000 points, and most arcade games can give you
    around 200 points. And no points for demo versions ;)
    
    I will list them this way:
    
    NAME OF GAME - Total Gamescore - Total Achievements
      Achievement Name
      Description (most time you can see it by the Achievement Name)
      The GameScore
      The Picture
    
    I know that the order can seem strange on some games, Iīll fix it later when
    I have most Achievements done.
    
    
    Easiest game to get points in: NBA 2K6.
    Lowest score: 5 G, in most Arcade games.
                  0 G, in Quake 2.
    Highest Score: 400 G, in Madden NFL 06.
    Most Gaming Achievements: 50. Perfect Dark Zero, Condemned and Quake 4.
        And the only for Japan game, Tetris: The Grandmaster Ace.
    Fewest Gaming Achievements: 5. NBA 2K6 and NHL 2K6.

    Iīll add "for Japanese Only" and games thatīs only yet released in Japan.
    Since I can zero Japanese (well, I know how the Macross Logo looks like but
    that will not help me here ;) ), Iīll use Babelfish to translate it to English,
    so expect some Engrish ^_^
    It seems that Tetris: The Grandmaster will be a Japanese only game.
    I bet that Tet lith is the Japanese name of Tetris: The Grandmaster.

    These achievements are special.
    The OXM360 is on the Official Xbox Magazie 360 demo disc. It unlocks nothing
    and it can not give you any points. The only reason itīs there are that
    Microsoft told the magazine makers that it MUST be there. So itīs there to
    mess up your total achievement score, since you can not get those 1000 points.
    The Xbox 360 Inner Circle and Xbox 360 Team are special badgers that only
    people from Microsoft can have.
    The PlayOnline Viewer is for people playing the Final Fantasy XI BETA.
    At the moment, only Japanese players have those.

    ===============================================================================
    
    Here I will list all errors that the 360 can have, and what Microsoft could
    have done better.

    - 11.1. Change this Microsoft                                                 -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Let me play games while downloading!
     Let us do things while we download stuff. Itīs not fun to go away some hours
     because we want to download a demo.
    
    Download UI.
     The downloads start at 5%. For large downloads, this means that # will be at
     5% for 5-10 minutes and it seems like its not going.
     When you resume a download, it starts at 50% (its really not at 50% tho).
     They need to include a kbps bar so you know how fast its going, along with
     total kbps downloaded so far (very much like when you download a file in IE)
    
    Unfinished Downloading.
     When you click to download a file, then donīt finish downloading it, a
     checkmark should not be beside the filename.
     You should be able to mark downloads as "seen" or "read" so you know which
     ones are truly new.
    
    A Demo and Trailer tab.
     Demos and trailers need its own tab.category under marketplace and not share
     one.
    
    Better Media Control.
     If you play a trailer downloaded from the Marketplace, you can only Stop and
     Pause it.
     If you play a DVD, you can do so much more. It would be great if we could play
     the trailers fast forward if we want to see a specific part of the trailer.
    
    Who is talking?
     Itīs great that we can leave negative feedback on idiots that canīt shut up
     about what they will do with Jews when you play online, but you donīt
     know who said it. If it showed the name of the ones thatīs talking, we could
     see who it was.

    - 11.2. I AM ERROR                                                            -

    The Scratching Disc.
    
    Some have discovered that their X-Box 360 can scratch the gaming disc. Some say
    it was because they had their 360 vertical.
    The truth is this. Vertical and Horizontal doesīnt matter. Itīs the movement
    that does it.
    Movements?
    Yes movements. Movements as in earthquake, as in your friends running around,
    as in changing the unit from vertical to horizontal, as in changing the unit
    from horizontal to vertical, as in kicking on the unit, as in tripping over the
    controller cable and fall.
    So donīt run at home kids.
    
    
    The unit is overheating.
    
    Go back and read the manual. What does it say about how to place the unit.
    Do not block any ventilation openings on the console or power supply.
    Do not place the console or power supply on a bed, sofa, or other soft surface
    that may block ventilation openings.
    Do not place the console or power supply in a confined space, such as a
    bookcase, rack, or stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
    Do not place the console or power supply near any heat sources, such as
    radiators, heat registers, stoves, or amplifiers.
    
    
    It does not turn on.
    
    Be sure that the power cord is inserted correct.
    Disconnect and connect the power cord.
    Press the Power button. It shall now start if itīs working correct.
    If not, try pressing to eject button on the unit. If the unit turns on, there
    may be a problem with the power button that may require service.
    Look for flashing red lights on the Ring of Light and examine the light on the
    Xbox 360 external power supply. Info about the lights below.
    After you firmly connect the power cord, see whether the power cord is plugged
    in to any device other than a typical power outlet. For example, the power cord
    may be attached to an extension cord. If this is the case, remove this device
    and then plug the power supply directly in a power outlet. 
    If the Xbox 360 still does not turn on, verify that the outlet is working by
    testing other devices in the same outlet. If no other devices work, the outlet
    may not be working. Examine your circuit breaker, and then contact a licensed
    electrician for help. 
    If the outlet is working but the Xbox 360 console does not turn on, remove the
    power supply power cord from the wall and from the Xbox 360 console. Examine
    the power cord that connects to the Xbox 360 console for damage.
    
    
    Rings of Light.
    
    The lower-right quadrant of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the
     Xbox 360. This means that the unit experiences a hardware failure. Try to
     restart the unit. If it doesīnt work, call support.
    The lower-right quadrant of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the
     Xbox 360 and you receive the following Universal Error Message in
     multiple languages: System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support.
     This means that the unit experiences a hardware failure. Try to restart the
     unit. If it doesīnt work, call support.
    The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the
     Xbox 360. This means that the unit is overheating.
     Let the unit cool down (this can take some hours). Then go up in this FAQ
     and read "The unit is overheating". If is still the same, call support.
    Three lights on the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360.
     The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red.
     This means that the unit has a hardware failure.
     Try to restart the unit. If that does not resolve the issue, unplug all the
     cables from the unit, and then firmly plug the cables in. 
     Still not working?
     Power-off the unit, remove the harddisk, and then turn on the console.
     If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn-off the unit,
     re-attach the hard disk drive, and then turn on the console.
     Still problem? Call the support.
    All four lights on the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360.
     This means that the AV cable is not being detected by the console.
     Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the unit.
     Remove it and reconnect it.
     BE SURE ITīS ALL THE WAY IN!!!!!
      The cable often meets some slight resistance before being fully inserted.
      Not fully inserting the cable will result in either all for lights flashing
      on the ring of light, or may simply result in no video on the screen.
      The cable is fully inserted when the largest part of the connector is nearly
      touching the units case.
     If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area
     of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into
     the unit. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
     If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still
     flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.
     Call the support.
    
    
    The power supply light.
    
    The power supply light is not illuminated.
     If the power supply light is not illuminated, the power supply typically is
     disconnected from the wall socket.
     However, if the light is not illuminated but the power supply is connected to
     the wall socket, there may be a problem with the power supply. 
     Let the power supply cool for several hours. The power supply may have
     overheated. The power supply should again work after it cools. Adequate
     cooling may take several hours. Make sure that the power supply has sufficient
     ventilation during the cooling period. Do not try to turn on the console
     during the cooling period.
     Disconnect and reconnect the power supply. After you firmly connect the power
     cord, see whether the power cord is plugged in to any device other than a
     typical power outlet. For example, the power cord may be attached to an
     extension cord. If this is the case, remove this device and then plug the
     power supply directly in a power outlet.
     If the Xbox 360 still does not turn on, verify that the outlet is working by
     testing other devices in the same outlet. If no other devices work, the outlet
     may not be working. Examine your circuit breaker, and then contact a licensed
     electrician for help.
    The power supply light is orange.
     An orange light is illuminated on the power supply when the unit is turned off
     or when the power supply is disconnected from the unit. This behavior is
     typical and indicates that the power supply is in standby.
     If the power supply light is orange and the unit will not turn on, there may
     be a problem with the unit.
     The power supply light can be orange and the unit not power on if the power
     supply cord is not fully inserted in the unit.
     Disconnect the power supply from the console, and then reconnect the power
     supply. Make sure that the power supply cord is fully inserted in the unit.
     You will hear a “click” sound when the power supply cord is fully inserted.
     Let it cool down. Read the "The unit is overheating" section above.
     Try to find if something else is wrong.
     Call the support.
    The power supply light is red.
     This means that something is wrong in the external power supply.
     Temporarily disconnect the power supply from the unit and from the wall
     socket, wait 30 seconds, and then again plug the power supply into the unit
     and into the wall socket.  
     Allow the power supply to cool for several hours. The red light may indicate
     that the power supply has overheated. The power supply should turn back on
     after it cools. Make sure that the power supply has sufficient ventilation
     during cooling. Do not try to turn on the console while the power supply is
     cooling. 
     The power supply needs service.

    ===============================================================================
    
    It seems that Microsoft have put the region free question on the gaming
    developers, since it has come reports thatīs saying that some games are region
    free. Just donīt expect and games from Microsoft (Rare) to be region free.
    
    Region Free games:
    
    Amped 3 seems to work on a PAL unit...
    Call of Duty 2
    Condemned
    GUN
    Quake 4

    - 13.1. FAQ                                                                   -
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q001 - Your FAQ sucks!
    
    A - Then read another one or make one yourself.
    
    Q002 - You canīt play games on a Core system!
    
    A - Yes you can. You canīt save without adding a memory card or a harddrive.
        And you canīt play X-Box 1 games. But you can still play most X-Box 360
        games.
    
    Q003 - I canīt register on Xbox Live, HELP!!!!
    
    A - You are trying to register or transfer you account on the launch day.
        At the same time as another million American users. This means that the
        server got so hammered so it goes down from time to time.
        Try again later, and call the support.
    
    Q004 - I got a Core system and bought a harddrive. Itīs installed but it
           doesīnt work. Help me!!!
    
    A - It seems that some Core owners with a harddrive have a problem. The
        harddrive seems to work, but they canīt install MP3īs, photos or make
        a gamer profile. As now there seems to be no solution, so call the support.
    
    Q005 - What TV is best for X-Box 360?
    
    A - I have no idea, ask a seller. A TV that supports both 720p and 1080i cost
        more then a TV that supports only one of them.
    
    Q006 - WHERE CAN I BUY A XBOX 360?!?!?!?!?
    
    A - Look in the stores. Itīs a shortout now, because Microsoft have made so few
        units and wants a worldwide release.
    
    Q007 - Why are Microsoft giving away a million units to Paris Hilton?
    
    A - 9000 units was used in lottery. A few of these was giving away to Hilton
        & CO. All winners are humans, most gamers, so it exist as many 360 owners
        now as if they had been sold. Besides, 9000 units extra means that not
        every store will get even one extra.
    
    Q008 - Hideo said that Metal Gear Solid 4 will come to 360, is it true?
    
    A - Hideo Kojima said that the MGS4 Techdemo could easily be ported to
        X-Box 360. Not that he will do it.
    
    Q009 - My friend said that Rare will port Perfect Dark Zero to Revolution.
           Is it true, or is he a Nintendo fanboy?
    
    A - Rare said that they could port PDZ to Revolution without a problem.
        Some things would change, for example they would probably use the remote
        as a gun, making the game a little different to play.
    
    Q010 - X-Box 360 cost to much!!!!
    
    A - Microsoft are loosing money on every unit they sell. Think how much it will
        cost if they wanted to earn som money on each unit.
    
    Q011 - They are selling 360īs on ebay for 3050$!!!
    
    A - Supply and demand. This is how the world works.
    
    Q012 - How do I know if my TV supports HD?
    
    A - Read the manual. Use google. See if you have 5 inputs close to each other.
    
    Q013 - 3050$? A Premium was sold for 5100$!!! People are crazy!!!!
    
    A - See question 011.
    
    Q014 - Where is my free month of Live Gold? I canīt see any card?
    
    A - When you create a new profile, choose Xbox Live Silver, and it shall pop
        up that you will get a free month of Gold. If it doesīnt work, call the
        support.
    
    Q015 - Xbox is spelled Xbox, not X-Box!!!
    
    A - I know, but I like to spell it X-Box. My FAQ, my rules.
    
    Q016 - Where are the great graphics? It doesīnt look so great as I thought
           it would!
    
    A - First generation games are not even using 20% of the power in a unit.
        Besides, the 360 is using 3 cores. Making something run on 2 cores are
        hell, 3 is even worse. And think of the PS3, using 7 of them...
    
    Q017 - Where are my 20GB? I can only see 13!!!
    
    A - When you format a harddrive, you loose some space. This lost space is
        telling the unit what the stuff on the disk is.
        13 is for the user to fill up, with pics, music, Live arcade and so on.
        4 is "hidden" for gamesaves.
        the rest is for swap and lost.
    
    Q018 - I canīt copy music from my IPod!
    
    A - You can only stream music from a IPod. If the music is in MP3. No ACC here.
    
    Q019 - Where is the CD that allows me to play old X-Box games?
    
    A - Somewhere on Xbox.com in a near future.
    
    Q020 - My 360 stopped working!!!
    
    A - Are you blocking the ventilation holes? Have you placed your unit in a hot
        place? Call the support.
    
    Q021 - When is a new shipment coming?
    
    A - If you are lucky, before X-Mas. If you are unlucky, in January.
    
    Q022 - Why are Microsoft selling units in Japan and Europe instead of selling
           to everybody that wants one in USA first? USA ROX!!!
    
    A - 1. They want a release before X-Mas. X-Mas means more units sold.
        2. Europe and Japan are paying even more for the units then what USA are
           doing. This means that Microsoft are not loosing as much money on each
           unit they sell outside USA.
        3. The place down under are not getting it until March.
    
    Q023 - Microsoft are tricking you all, they are holding back many units!
    
    A - The shortage is true. Why would Microsoft hold back so many units if they
        knew that every unit they release before X-mas will sell?
    
    Q024 - Why are people doing so crazy stuff to get a X-Box 360?
    
    A - What crazy stuff? Buying it on ebay for thousands of dollar? Trying to rob
        stores on units? Trying to steal units from kids? Smashing windows because
        stores are not selling them one? Yes it exist examples of all these things.
        Why? Because they believe they will feel like a God if they have one on
        the Launch day. And they can tell their friends that havīnt got any unit
        that they are better then them.
    
    Q025 - I GOT MY XBOX 360!!!! I JUST HAD TO WAIT A WHOLE NIGHT OUTSIDE THE STORE
           IN COLD RAIN AND NO FOOD!!!! IM A GOD!!!!
    
    A - Nice for you.
    
    Q026 - Why didīnt you write anything about this or that?
    
    A - Because Iīm lazy. Thank you, now I must do a update.
    
    Q026 - How do I change themes on the dashboard?
    
    A - Push the Guide button on your controller and go to Personal Settings.
    
    Q027 - You said somewhere in you're guide that xbox 360 have sold out in most
           stores around America. Do you happen to know how much consoles were
           originally planned for the release date? Eg 2 million units?
    
    A - The numbers Iīve heard are that they released around one million units in
        USA. No idea how many of each sort it was. Iīve also heard that UK will
        only get 50.000 or 500.000 units at launch day, depending on where you
        read it. But I have no official numbers, seems impossible to find that.
    
    Q028 - You mentioned that Japan will only have 11 xbox games that are BC. Does
           that include Australia? I was kinda hoping 200 games being BC would
           apply for Australia as well as America loll.
    
    A - Microsoft have only released eleven games on the list, but they will
        probably add more before the Japanese launch (at least I hope so).
        My guess is that the Australian BC list will probably be the same as the
        European list. I guess so because we both have the same TV standard and the
        Australian xbox.com seems to list the same list.
        But what worries me about Australian is that if you look at the Australian
        version of xbox.com (www.xbox.com/en-AU) and look at Games - All Games, it
        seems that no games will have HDTV Support o_O
        I hope this is a error on the page.
    
    Q029 - I was reading your guide, and found it very informative. However, when
           I began reading what you were saying about 1080i being better than 720p.
           I understand you probably aren't an enthusiast, and I don't mean to
           insult you, because anyone with any knowledge of HD knows 720p>1080i.
           Especially when it comes to video games, with a great deal of fast
           moving objects, 720p reigns supreme.
           http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=720p&oldid=28937514
           Read up.
    
    A - Thanks. It is interesting reading, and we can all be wrong sometimes.
        I still believe that 1080i is better on smaller TVīs and 720p is better on
        on bigger TVīs.
        Itīs up to each user to see it for themself what they like most, so I
        demand that every user of a X-Box 360 look for themself what they like
        most.
        ...if they have a TV or monitor that supports it.
    
    Q030 - Hey man I read your FAQ and I really couldn't find anything that tells
           me how to put videos on the 360 hard drive. Is it possible to do that?
    
    A - Right now it seems that nobody knows how to do with movies. It seems that
        we canīt do it yet, but you are supposed to be able to stream it from
        your XP PC with Windows Media Connect. But that also seems to not work so
        well yet...
        So to be honest,  have no idea yet.
    
    Q031 - Hello! My name is Mr.X and I love your guide. I love it so much so I
           want it on my site @ xyz.com. I have 250.000+ visitors every day.
           Can I host it?
    
    A - I have a policy to only host my stuff at Gamefaqs these days, because Iīm
        so lazy. To let other sites host it will only make people cry in the end.
        One example was one of my earlier FAQīs, GTA San Andreas to PS2. I let so
        many host it, so I forgot to update half of them, including Gamefaqs.
        In the end, Gamefaqs took it down.
        So Iīm saying no, but you can use it as a base if you want, if you rewrite
        bigger parts of it and put the name Foppe somewhere in the credz ;)
    
    Q032 - Is Using the 360 or xbox to play dvd (movies) will reduce the life of
           the drive?
    
    A - It shall not do it. But since we havīnt tried it that much yet, we arīnt
        100% sure about it, just 83%.
    
    Q033 - I read all the questions in your FAQ, but to be honest, I didn't read
           the ENTIRE thing, but I did read a heafty portion of it looking for the
           answer to this question; I can only seem to sonnect two controllers at
           once. Help! Thank you very much. 
    
    A - This is a question that Iīve got a lot.
        To connect your wired controller, you need to use a USB port. The 360 have
        two USB ports in the front of the unit, and one on the backside. Now you
        will think that thatīs only 3 controllers. And you are correct. To use 4
        controllers, you need at least one wireless. And if you want to stream
        music from one USB port, you need at least two wireless controllers.
        If you are using only wireless controllers and canīt get them to work, try
        to redo what you did to connect the first controller. With other words...
        Press and hold down the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on.
        If your console is not on, press the Power button to turn on the console.
        Press and release the connect button on the console.
        Press and release the connect button on the controller.
        After the Ring of Light on the controller and console spin and flash once,
        the controller is connected. The quadrant that remains lit indicates the
        controller's position.
        And remember to insert the battery first.
    
    Q034 - When is the second shipment?
    
    A - It seems that the second shipment will be this Friday (25th November), with
        a new shipment every Friday. This is based on the info most stores are
        getting today (23rd). Itīs to early to know if this is rumors or truth.
    
    Q035 - WHere is the ACC codec you talked about?
    
    A - Use Xbox Live and go to Xbox Live Marketplace, then Game Downloads.
        Select All Games, Alphabetical List of Games. Select Optional iPod Support,
        download it and you can now listen to ACC files.
        Can only be downloaded one time for each gamer profile.
    
    Q036 - My X-Box 360 have stopped working, itīs just some red lights that works.
           Help me!!!!!!
    
    A - Those red lights tells you whatīs wrong, take a look in the manual.
        You can always try to remove all cables and put them in again.
        Be sure to put them in ALL the way in. Sometime you need to use some power
        to get it all in.
        If nothing works, call the support.
    
    Q037 - Does the premium bundle come with standard AV hookup or only the HD?
    
    A - Itīs a combination of the two. There is Red, Green, Blue, another Red and
        White for audio, and a Yellow added.
        To use it as a Composite, just put in the Red, White and Yellow.
    
    Q038 - Will playing the 360 on a non HD tv make it look like the old Xbox?
           Or will it still be super sexy graphics?
    
    A - It will look great, even without HD.
    
    Q039 - I tried out the backward compatabilty with Halo 2, but it said I had an
           important message from XBox Live and I needed to view it at the account
            management. I went to it and nothing showed up. What shall I do?
    
    A - It has to do with parental settings go to the dashboard, system settings,
        then family settings and mess around with the options.
    
    Q040 - Why didīnt you answer my mail or updated your FAQ?
    
    A - Because I have other things to do then to be online 24/7. Calm down and I
        will send you a mail.
    
    Q041 - why is the xbox 360 coming out on march 2 in australia why cant it 
           come out before x-mas?
    
    A - Thatīs because Microsoft decided to release it in Australia / New Zealand
        the second March. Maybe they believed that they dad so few units to sell
        so they waited with the release down under until they was sure that
        everybody there would get one.
    
    Q042 - what online stuff is TOTALLY free? (i mean, is silver free?)
    
    A - Yes Xbox Live Silver is totally free. The only thing you need to pay is
        the internet bill.
    
    Q043 - Ive got a linksys wireless network card, will it work on my 360?
    
    A - To be honest, I have no idea.
        But you can look at
        http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/webconnectivitywizard.htm
        if you get into trouble.
    
    Q044 - Are rechargeable AA batteries included with the wireless controller?
    
    A - Yes they are included.
        *UPDATE* My mistake. AA batteries are included, but they are NOT
        rechargable.
    
    Q045 - Is there a way to directly connect your wireless controller to the 360,
           so you dont need batteries if you run out of batteries (i mean someting
           included)
    
    A - You need to buy a Play & Charge for this. With a Play & Charge you can
        connect your wireless controller to your X-Box 360 and charge the batteries
        in the controller. The batteries must still be in the controller.
    
    
    Q046 - Will it look better on a 17" monitor or on a 27" 480i tv? Is the VGA
           thingy included?
    
    A - You can run your games at 1080i on your monitor, so you get a higher
        resolution in a smaller place. It is really hard to say, since it does
        look better, but it is a smaller space, so you have to decide it yourself
        if itīs worth to do it.
        You must buy the VGA cable separatly.
    
    
    Q047 - Why are you always using 83%? (if you dont feel like answering then
           dont, the question is not pertinent anyway...)
    
    A - 83%? Do do mean the version number?
        I do know that there are so much that I could include, which I probably
        will include sometime in the future, so thatīs why Iīm putting the version
        number at 80-90 now. I want the FAQ to be mostly complete before I give it
        a 1.00-number.
    
    Q050 - Read the questin: Wich resolution is 720p using?
    
    A - 720p is using the 1280 x 720 resolution.
    
    Q051 - I just wanted to know if we could play Japanese games on a U.S 360 and
           vice versa. Rock on!
    
    A - You are not supported to do it, but people seems to have discovered that
        some US games are working great on Japanese units. Did they rush out the
        games so they forgot to add a region lock on them? Or was it a nice thing
        they did with the early released games?
        Call of Duty 2, Condemned, Gun, and Tony Hawk: American Wasteland are the
        games that seems to not have any region locks, maybe something for European
        gamers to test?
    
    Q052 - I am having problems connecting 2 differnt computers to the 360, my wife
           and my computer are both on the network, and we each have our own music
           on the PC's and want to use them to play.  But my computer is the only
           one to ever show up. Any ideas, or can you confirm that its only 1 pc
           at a time?
    
    A - I have no idea. I think itīs strange that it only will support one PC.
        I know that itīs possible to have two X-Box 360 to share different media
        from the same PC, but I have no idea with more then one PC.
    
    Q053 - Is there a way to save the music and/or pictures on the 360 from your
           computer, instead of streaming them?  That way when i go to other
           peoples house i have my music and pictures to use.
    
    A - You can save music from Audio CDīs, but not from MP3 CDīs. I guess
        Microsoft thought that there was a bigger chance that MP3 CDīs was more
        illegal then Audio CDīs. As for pictures, I donīt think so. I know that
        the 360 can read JPEGīs from a CD but I donīt think you can save them.
    
    Q054 - I really need to know which is the best Highspeed internet service to
           get for Xbox live. I know the differences in the prices but my problem
           consists of a different issue. it involves speed.  
           If I get Verison DSL, it will be 50x faster than dialup.
           If I get Optimum online, it will be 150x faster than dialup!
           And in worse case sceneario, if I get Direct-way(DirectTV service) it
           will be 50x faster than dialup. but much more expensive.
           What I want to know is if I get a slower system, such as DSL, how will
           it affect my gameplay while on X-box live? Will it slow it down? Or will
           it be the same? And is Direct-way X-box live compatiable????? 
    
    A - Dial-up (for example, 56K), ISDN, and satellite Internet services are not
        supported by Xbox Live. DSL or Cable are working great.
        The difference between using a DSL and something faster while playing
        Xbox Live shall be nothing at all. The game shall run as fast on each
        connections.
        The only difference I can think of is that you can have more heavily
        downloads with your PC at the same time as you play Xbox Live without
        eventually laggy gameplay if you have a higher Internet connection.
        So take it easy with all anime downloads while you play Xbox Live ;)
        Direct-way as in the company or as in putting the internet directly into
        your Xbox?
        If it is the company that sends Internet with your satellite disk, they are
        not on the official list of "Internet providers that supports Xbox Live"
        and Iīve heard stories about people having problem using Live with them.
        If you mean if the 360 is compatible with "Internet directly to the unit
        with no PC between" then yes, you can do it.
    
    Q055 - I've been playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted for a couple days and got
           about 5 accomplishments unlocked. The only problem was that it was on
           my offline account but I wanted to put it on my online account. I tried
           moving it to my online account and did, but the accomplishments didn't
           show up. The saved game moved and works on the online account, it's just
           that the accomplishments didn't. I was wondering if there was anyway
           that this could be possible, and if so, how?
    
    A - Honestly, I have no idea. Have you tried to start a new game with your
        online account, using it when you play offline and unlock some
        accomplishments?
    
    Q056 - does Project Gotham Racing 3 have co-op (It is listed in your guide as
           having it.)? I picked this game up on launch day, and so far I haven't
           seen the ability to do co-op, nor does it say that you are able to do
           it on the back of the game. If I'm wrong, could you tell me how to
           access this feature?
    
    A - I got my information from the official Xbox.com so I think itīs strange
        that itīs not correct.
        ...but they are also listing Tony Hawk as a singleplayergame that have
        coop, how can you have coop with one player?
        *looking*
        Ah, thatīs the problem. Your friend needs to have a profile on your 360.
        Sign him in, then choose the non-career races, and the second person should
        be able to join. I hope...
    
    Q057 - only thing i wanna say about the xbox 360 is that some of them crash
           after first use there have been reports of people playing it one day,
           turning it off and the next day they go to turn it on and it won't turn
           on.
    
    A - Yes Iīve heard strange stories about crashing units. Iīll dig deeper into
        it and add a Crashing-section in the next or nextnext update.
    
    Q058 - whats ACC? and can it play all old xbox games or just the ones you
          listed? Also why does it only play the games you listed
    
    A - ACC is a file format that Apple uses for their IPod. See it as another
        sound format, like MP3, MP2, Wav, OGG and so on.
        You can only play those games listed because Microsoft emulates the older
        games with software (like playing Snes roms on your PC) instead of emulate
        them with hardware (like the PS2 does with PS1-games). Instead of making a
        big emulator, they make many small emulators that only plays one game each.
        This means that they need to make a new emulator for each new game. This
        means that you doesīnt need to download the whole emulator each time they
        have added a new game, and they can make each emulator to emulate just that
        game nicely, instead of making a new game crash/making it impossible to
        play some other game, which can be the case with a big emulator.
        Microsoft are working on adding more games in the future.
        The fastest way to see is to insert your Xbox game into the 360, wait for
        the "Please insert a Xbox or 360 game", go to Xbox Live marketplace and it
        will show you a download if itīs done.
        If you donīt have Xbox Live, you can look at xbox.com for a download to
        your PC, so you can burn it and install it. Or letting them send a CD for a
        small price.
    
    Q059 - hey man i got a ? I was wondering i got the x box 360 and i got 4 wire
           controllers. I found 3 spots to put them in is there a 4th?
    
    A - You must have at least one wireless controller to have 4 controllers.
    
    Q060 - ŋ QUE VAS A PERDER SI PRUEBAS ?  
           Siguiendo los pasos que proponen es de lo mas facil GANAR DINERO ^___^ 
    
    A - ...
    
    
    Q061 - I saw that your guide said that with Xbox Live Gold, I could play
           select Xbox Live Xbox games.  Does this mean I can't play Xbox Live
           Xbox games with Silver?
    
    A - You can not play games on Xbox Live without a Xbox Live Gold account.
        As a Silver member, you can try it with "Preview Xbox Live Gold during
        free weekend trials", but I have no idea when that is or how often it is.
    
    Q062 - What theme are you using on your Dashboard?
    
    A - None. I do not even own a X-Box 360, and I have no plans gettign one in
        the future.
    
    Q063 - If I get a wireless controller, and then the batteries run out of power,
           and i dont have any play and charge thing, what do I do?
    
    A - You can buy a Play & charge or you can buy new batteries.
        Or you can get rechargable batteries and charge them when you donīt play.
    
    Q064 - How do you like the new xbox how do you feel about it?  the reason I'm
           asking is because I want to know if its worth buying. I know you know
           there are a lot of rumors going around saying the xbox 360 is some crap,
           they messed up with the whole hard drive thing it cost too much, etc.,
           after all the press on the new systems I'm for the PS3 and Revolution
           they seem like they have more to offer then the xbox360.
           Not only that they want you to pay $400 $500 $2000 what have you and at
           this point I rather just get it for free or win it from somewhere.
           So that's the main question is it wroth getting?
    
    A - My personal feeling about the 360 is that itīs not bad. Microsoft have
        really put their heart in the 360 to make it easy to play online, and
        online gaming is always fun.
        The price is a little heavy but I guess that it will go down when the PS3
        and Revolution is released.
        I like all 3 of the next-gen systems.
        The PS3 for Metal Gear Solid 4, the Revolution for the new controller and
        all Nintendogames, and the 360 for the games that will not be released on
        either PS3 or Revolution.
        Right now, the 360 feels like a egoboost, but it doesīnt really exist any
        games that shows us what the next-gen is all about. Iīm not surprised,
        since itīs all firstgeneration-games we are talking about.
    
        I would not say that itīs crap. Sure the price is high but it also cost a
        bit to make it. It always exist faulty units in the production, but itīs
        not even 3% of them that are faulty. Most people that say their 360 broke
        are either Sony fanboys that trolls or people that have placed the unit
        wrong (in a hot place, have covered the ventilation holes, and so on).
    
        To make it short, if we want to play all great games that is released, we
        must open our wallets and buy all 3 systems. Iīm waiting for a pricedrop,
        but it will be a long wait.
    
    Q065 - I read on www.slashdot.org that a quick fix if your 360 kept crashing
           and such was to lift the external power supply so it would get some
           air and not overheat. Something you might want to mention, I guess.
    
    A - Thanks, Iīll add it in a crashingsection later.
    
    
    Q066 - I would like to get my hands on an x-box 360 and connect it to the
           internet to get the maximum out of it. The thing is that, in my house,
           my modem is located as far as can be from where my consoles are. How
           does the internet/x-box connection work? Will I have to use a 35 feet
           cable? Do I really need to buy the wireless adaptor?
    
    A - 35 feet is not so long, you can use a 35 feet cable without a problem.
    
    Q067 - I understand there is a Silver and Gold XBOX Live accounts correct?
           The silver is free you say? As in you buy the xbox 360 and its free
           from out of the box?
    
    A - Yes it is free from out the box, as long as you have a fast enough
        Internet. When you create your profile the first time you start your unit,
        just choose that you want to join Xbox Live and then choose Silver.
        The only thing you need to pay is your ordinary Internet bill.
    
    Q068 - Will you be able to buy the Combination High-Definition Component and
           Standard A/V Cable later?
    
    A - Unless Microsoft screws up, yes you can.
    
    Q069 - Will you be able to transfer your Xbox Live account to the Xbox 360?
    
    A - Yes. And you can still use it on your old Xbox even after you have
        transfered it to the 360.
    
    Q070 - I bought the hard drive seperate, but I tried to play Star Wars
           Battlefront 2, but it said something about downloading something off of
           Xbox.com. What do I have to download, if anything, off of Xbox.com,
           because I have searched their site and it didnt say anything about
           downloading software to play newer Xbox games?
    
    A - That site is hard to find stuff on, even if you know where to search >_>
        The site you are searchign for is
        http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardscompatibility.htm . You can
        download it directly to your system with Xbox Live if you want.
        To bad that Star Wars: Battlefront II doesīnt seem to be on the list at the
        moment, but I hope it will soon be there.
    
    Q071 - Since I got the Core system, and bought the Hard Drive, then will I be
           able to save games without having to buy a memory card?
    
    A - Yes, you will save to the harddrive instead.
    
    
    Q072 - I was wondering, if the X-Box 360 has a built in Ethernet Port, can i
           connect my ADSL modem to the X-Box so that i can use the internet? If i
           can't, please tell me another way. Thanks!
    
    A - Yes it has a Ethernet port so itīs just to connect.
    
    Q073 - Can a TV with 1024 x 768p use 720p?
    
    A - It should go, unless the TV hates 720p. Look in the manual.
    
    Q074 - I'm on Dialup and am also an xbox live gold member.  It works fine with
           4 cars on PGR3, and kinda is choppy in NFS:MW. But just thought I'd let
           you know.  *shrugs* 
    
    A - Nice info. I thought that Microsoft had something that blocked it if it was
        slowslowslow (no offense), seems I was wrong ^_^
    
    Q075 - I found it amusing that you don't have a 360, nor do you plan to own
           one.
    
    A - If somebody gave me one, I would take it ;)
        Donīt take me wrong, itīs a nice little machine but I think itīs to early
        to pay that much for it. Maybe some time in the future when it exist some
        "real" killergames on it. Until then, Iīm waiting for a Revolution ;)
    
    Q076 - I just want to know what setting I would put the VGA cable on (720p,
           1080i, etc etc) if I used it on my monitor. Maximum Resolution for it
           is 1280x1024.
    
    A - 1080i is 1920x1080, which is higher then 1280x1024.
        720p is 1280x720, so I would go for 720p.
    
    Q077 - I was wondering if the Xbox 360 controller was compatible with
           computers, it does have a USB port. Would you happen to know if you
           could use the 360 controller for PC games. That's all.
    
    A - Yes you can use the wired controller on your PC.
        The wireless one will only charge if you plug it in with a Play & Charge.
    
    Q078 - In England we write Ģ279, not 279Ģ.
    
    A - Thanks for the info, in USA they also write $279, not 279$.
    
    Q079 - Can you make an MP3 data disk and then copy the MP3s from the cd to
           your Xbox 360 hard drive?
    
    A - At the moment, it seems that you canīt copy MP3īs from a cd. Only if it is
        a Audio CD.
    
    Q080 - what are the PAL options for the tv in Europe and is the map expansion
           Halo also playable on X-Box 360 for Europe?
    
    A - The PAL TV Options for European 360īs are 50Hz and PAL 60Hz. The only Halo
        map expansion I know are the one for Halo 2, and that is playable on the
        European version.
    
    Q081 - I have AOL and i am wondering if i can play xbox silver/gold with it...
           I have ver. 9.0.
    
    A - It depends...
        AOL High-Speed Broadband service supports both cable and DSL. Currently,
        you cannot connect to Xbox Live using AOL High-Speed Broadband cable
        service. Contact AOL High-Speed Broadband for more information and updates
        about this issue.
        You may be able to connect to Xbox Live using AOL High-Speed Broadband DSL
        service. To do so from the Xbox Dashboard, select Settings, and then select
        Network Settings.
        From the Network Settings screen, select PPPoE Settings.
        For username, type your AOL screen name in the format "screenname@aol.com"
        and then your password (all lowercase and with any spaces or special
        characters removed).
        To connect to Xbox Live using the new settings, return (BACK) to the
        Network Settings screen, and then select Connect.
        If you cannot connect, contact AOL High-Speed Broadband for more
        information and updates about this issue.
    
    Q082 - You are a ******* idiot that havīnt answered my mails!
    
    A - I am a lazy person that have a life. If somebody paid me for sitting 24/7
        in front of the computer, I would gladly update the FAQ everytime I get a
        new mail or some info is reported somewhere.
        And what you know, I could have been shot, killed, been in hospital, been
        in a war or something else. So calm down and Iīll answer your mail.
    
    Q083 - Is there a way to download more Gamer Pictures for the XBOX 360 Gamer
           Profile? Can they be created? What size and file format are they? How
           do you use them?
    
    A - It seems that you can not create your own Gamer pictures, I guess that
        Microsoft didīnt want any goatse out there...
        Look in the Live Marketplace and you will see Gamer Pictures that you can
        download from different games. These costs you Microsoft Points, which
        means that you have to pay real money to get some new pics that you can
        use... Thatīs cheap, Microsoft. Letīs hope that some games in the future
        (maybe demo discs)`will have some free ones included.
    
    Q084 - Can You have dial-up internet connection and still be able to go on
           X-box live and download arcade games and have all the other benifits of
           X-box live?, if so How do I do it? Thanks in advance
    
    A - Theoretically, yes you can. It will be slow, but it is not impossible.
        You must have the dial-up connection to your computer and having the 360
        in a network with your computer with a Ethernet cable, then share the
        Internet to your network somehow. I donīt know exactly how to do that.
    
    Q085 - Hey. I was reading your Xbox 360 FAQ on  gamefaqs.com and I noticed one
           of the questions was in Spanish. I found  the translation.
           In Spanish-
           QUE VAS A PERDER SI PRUEBAS. Siguiendo los pasos que proponen es de lo
           mas facil GANAR DINERO
    
           In English-
           THAT YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE IF TESTS. Following the steps that propose
           it is of but the facil thing TO MAKE MONEY
           It's not 100% accurate, but whatever.
    
    A - I knew that it was some kind of spammail, the whole thing was that it had
        the 360 FAQ in the header. ANd Iīve got 10 more of those >_>
        If anybody wants to send me spam, please remove the fricking 360 from the
        header!!!
    
    Q086 - I have an Xbox 360 and I am looking at your backwords compatibility list
           of Xbox games that work if you have a hardrive. So I have a harddrive
           and I try to play Fable because its on your list and it just says 
           "This original Xbox game is not supported on your Xbox 360 console. An
           update to support this game may be available. For More info, go to
           www.xbox.com/games."
           So what the hell is wrong?
    
    A - It wants you to go to
        http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardscompatibility.htm and read how to
        do. You can either download the patch from Xbox Live, download a file to
        your computer and burn it and use the burned disc on your 360 or letting
        Microsoft send you a CD for a small price.
    
    Q087 - Does Starwars Battlefront I or II work on the 360?
    
    A - At the moment, it does not seem that they will work. I hope they will soon
        work.
    
    Q088 - On the Connections section, you name the different connectors you can
           use. I think you missed out HDMI and DVI. HDMI is what most people will
           be using to connect stuff to their HDTV - it contains the picture and
           sound and delivers good quality. I'm not quite sure on DVI - something
           to do with monitors but you can still use it to connect to a HDTV. I'm
           definately not an expert on this but what I say I think is right. And if
           I missed it being mentioned somewhere in your guide- sorry. Thanks.
    
           Oh and the guy who whined about not getting stuff in the USA first...
           f*** him. The USA get nearly everything before Europe does, so he cant
           complain (no offence to USA).
    
    A - You are correct in that HDMI and DVI connectors are better then RCA and
        Component. The only problem is that Micrsoft are not releasing any HDMI or
        DVI cables, and it doesīnt seems that they will do, at least not yet.
        And Iīve not seen any thirdpart having any plans on doing so either.
    
        Oh and the guy who whined about not getting stuff in the USA first...
        You are so correct.
    
    Q089 - in your FAQ in the last section, where you answered people's e-mails,
           you said Europe and Japan are paying more, I don't know about Japan but
           here in Ireland we're paying 400 Euro total (including Tax). In America
           it's $400 + tax, with changeover it adds up to be equal, America doesn't
           add tax until after you buy it, other countries have it pre-added, so
           the price you see is the price you pay. 
    
    A - Thank God itīs easier to see how much it will cost with taxes in Europe.
    
    Q090 - Is there a minimum broadband spec for connecting the X-box360 for
           online gaming?  My DSL provider(Verizon) said that the 768k would not
           work and told me I would need the highest speed (1.5) which is fifteen
           dollars more.  I have been trying to get an answer to this question to
           no avail.  The wait times in the text chat and phone customer service
           are outrageous. Thank you in advance for any assistance you may offer
           regarding this query.
    
    A - Microsoft are saying "cable or DSL", not how fast the DSL must be.
        Verizon is on the official Xbox Live Compatible ISPs so they should know
        what they are talking about...
        But Iīve got mails from people that are using Xbox Live Gold from a dial up
        so I gues that it should not be all impossible. Some games were even
        running without lagg, guess they was lucky.
    
    Q091 - Now i have not had the oppertunity to test this myself, but I'm sure if
           someone really wanted to connect 4 wired controllers to their XBox, all
           they would need to do is purchase a USB hub, most of them add four
           ports, and most of them are between 30-50$CAD.
    
    A - Iīve been thinking about this earlier and it seems that it could work.
        Unless Microsoft have made something with the USB ports so it can only use
        one unit at the same time.
        Can somebody confirm this?
    
    Q092 - How many Xbox 360s was released in Europe?
    
    A - The inofficial Launchday release says it was 300.000 units in Europe.
        100.000 of these was in UK...
    
    Q093 - The 360 cost to much!!!
    
    A - Meridian is releasing a DVDplayer that costs 20.000$. THAT is to much.
    
    Q094 - WHat game have sold most?
    
    A - It exist a list that shows the top 5 best selling Xbox 360-games from
        Walmart, Amazon and Gamestop. Walmart and Amazon are both the same with:
        1. Call of Duty 2 
        2. Madden NFL 06 
        3. Need for Speed Most Wanted 
        4. Peter Jackson’s King Kong 
        5. Project Gotham Racing 3 
    
        Gamestopīs list are:
        1. Call of Duty 2 
        2. Project Gotham Racing 3 
        3. Perfect Dark Zero 
        4. Dead or Alive 4 (pre-order) 
        5. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (pre-order) 
    
        So I guess that CoD2 are the winner?
    
    Q095 - The wireless controller is not wireless? When I put it in the Play &
           Charge, Iīm to lazy to remove it when itīs done charging, and thereby
           Iīm having a wire in my wireless controller!
    
    A - You are so lazy, so you doesīnt deserve a X-Box 360.
    
    Q096 - Why are IGN Nintendo fanboys? They hate the 360!!!
    
    A - No. What have I said about trusting IGN?
        The "10 reasons to wait for a Revolution instead of buying a 360"-article
        was written on the NINTENDO part of IGN. If you had a website that was
        about the 360, would you then post 10 reasons why to buy a PSP instead?
    
    Q097 - The 360 Power supply are huge!!! ANd the noice is huge!!! I hate it!!!
    
    A - It is not so huge. Itīs better to have it outside then to have it inside,
        which means that the unit would have been bigger and getting hotter.
        And the noise is not so high. If you canīt take it, sell your 360.
    
    Q098 - My friend lies that Microsoft is loosing money on the 360!
    
    A - Your friend is correct. According to Business Week, Microsoft could be
        losing up to 126$ on each unit sold.
        Microsoft lost money on each Xbox1 they are selling and Sony are loosing
        money on each PS2 they are selling. Only Nintendo are earning money on
        their gaming part of the company.
    
    Q099 - Why are you writing a FAQ about the 360 if you doesīnt even want one,
           SOny fanboy!!
    
    A - Because I can. And I am no fanboy. If you gave me one, I would take it.
        The reason why Iīm writing one is that I saw that the need for the FAQ
        existed a week before the American launch. And the need is still big.
        This FAQ is one of the most used on Gamefaqs at the moment. It is on place
        4 on the Top 10 FAQ Pages today. It was on place 3 not long ago, but Animal
        Crossing WW was released. The first and second game on the list (Dragon
        Quest VIII and WWE SD vs Raw 06) have each many FAQīs while Animal Crossing
        WW and Xbox 360 Hardware are only having one FAQ each.
    
    
    Q100 - How many units have been sold on ebay?
    
    A - According to eBay president and CEO Meg Whitman, 40,000 Xbox 360 units have
        been sold on eBay. If launch supply estimates from American Technology
        Research are accurate, that would mean that 10% of all Xbox 360 units sold
        in the US were either sold or resold through eBay.
    
    Q101 - What is this Final Fantasy XI beta Iīve heard about?
    
    A - A free FFXI Beta disc will follow the UK Xbox 360: The Official Xbox
        Magazine in January. You can find it in stores the January 5th.
        In Japan it will be distributed with special Japanese 360 launch packages.
        No word about any American beta.
    
    Q102 - Why must we go back to have games with many disc instead of having a
           blueray drive? This is not Playstation!!!
    
    A - Playstation had it. PS2 had it. Gamecube had it. And Xbox had it.
        Games on multiple discs. Itīs not like every game will have 4 or more discs
        in the future. Game Informer doesīnt know what they are talking about when
        it sounds so. And when the time comes that we need more discs, I bet that
        the programmers are smart enough so you doesīnt need to swap them every 15
        minute. Now somebody will say that games which are linear, such as Halo,
        may work great with a multi-disc format (think Final Fantasy VII), but
        games which are, er… cubic, such as Grand Theft Auto, may take a
        significant hit in their ease of playability. I see no problems with games
        like GTA. Just put the maps on all discs and let the story missions change
        between the discs. Maybe even include different maps like say an earthquake
        happens before itīs time to switch disc.
    
    Q103 - Why are my 360 so power-hungry?
    
    A - The 360 is more then your Xbox, yes. And so are Plasma TVīs if you compare
        them with your older TV.
        But calm down, your PC is draining more power then your 360.
    
    Q104 - Is the Xbox Live friends list limit still 100? 
    
    A - Yes. But youīll be able to view your friends friends lists too, which might
        help some.
    
    Q105 - Question: do you try to ensure that you provide correct information?
       DVI is actually a sort of "uber-standard" in HDTV, since it can transfer
       near and/or completley uncompressed video, meaning almost perfect clarity.
       The problem (s): 
       1: not all HDTV's support DVI Inputs.
       2: the average DVI cable costs between $100 and #120 USD.
       3: Most TV's can't even take advantage of this unless they're (I'll guess)
       42in. or larger.
       4: Most people don't want to shell out that kind of money even if they have
       it.
       5: Most people don't even know what the hell they're asking for when they
       say "Where are your [insert generic item label here]?" 
       6: If you do know exactly what you're talking about, you probably confused
       your local electronics store worker. Many of them are friggin clueless...
       7: As far as I've seen, most DVI cables are rather short. So, if the DVI
       input(s) are on the left of your 42+in. TV, and your 360 is on a shelf to
       the right of that TV inside an entertainment center, odds are that you'll
       have to move something-either the 360 or the entire entertainment center.
       Most people don't want to do this and don't realize that they need to
       measure cable lengths before they buy something that won't reach...
       8: For the money (since almost every new TV now supports some form of "HDTV"
       (even if it's only 480p- a sort of highER definition TV, but not exactly
       HIGH Definition TV), you're probably better off going with the standard
       Component (5-plug) HD-Cables that come standard with the premium system.
       Also, if you don't want to shell out alot of $$$ on a surround sound system
       (or have one and don't want to shell out that money on an optical audio
       cable) then I recommend finding a headphone jack on your TV and buying a 
       cheap set of cables something like this
       http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/70901/
       wo/bvJZrl0d6x2I3kgOmNn1tY5g336/6.SLID?mco=AD2EAFED&nplm=T4504LL%2FA  but
       cheaper (I found one in a local Wal-Mart for $5.00). This actually works
       very well, and while this won't enable effects like DPL II and the likes,
       it will enable you to hear much better sound. Right now, I use the cable to
       connect my 27in. 10801/480p/(i think)720p HDTV to my Philips 330W bookshelf
       stereo and it sounds oh-so-much better. While I have connected my otehr
       systems (PS2 and GameCube) to my TV and not needed this headphone-RCA cable,
       I did need it to connect my Xbox since I bought the HD-Cable set (the HD
       cable set comes with its' own audio cables, meaning that the only way to get
       the sound out of your xbox is through whatever you directly connected your
       xbox to-a home theater system that has HD-Cables going from the Component-
       Out jack to your TV's Composite-In jack or directly into your TV, meaning
       that without this cable, all of your sound comes through the TV speakers.
       9: For those without a HDTV, don't even bother. Just wait and get a HDTV
       while you wait for the price to drop. I'm not saying that so that I can
       possibly increase my chances of getting a system, but I'm saying that so
       you don't waste your money just to find out that the graphics aren't all
       that much better without a HDTV than the original Xbox. Don't say that I
       didn't warn you... 
       10: If you keep your home too hot, the PSU (Power Supply Unit for all of
       you non-informed tech dummies) is probably 99.9% guarnteed to overheat
       faster. Most people can't even afford to heat their homes to 90 degrees F,
       so please take the reasonable solutions before posting a very stupid
       question about this. 
    
    A - When I get a list of many questions, I try to split them. But since I liked
        your questions, Iīm going to put them in at the same place.
        And yes, I try to give out the correct information. Itīs not easy, and as
        a human Iīm making mistakes. Are you making mistakes sometimes?
        1. I canīt remember saying that all HDTV's are supporting DVI Inputs.
        2. I heard you can get one from 86$ if you search.
        3. That is probably correct.
        4. If they are throwing away 5000$ on a X-Box 360 on ebay, they can
        probably buy a cable for 100$. But why would they buy a cable that they
        canīt use with their 360?
        5. That is correct. People are idiots.
        6. So your local electronics store worker doesīnt know what they are
        working with?
        7. Are we talking about the same DVI? If I do a google image search on the
        word DVI, it shows what I believe Iīm talking about. And that is something
        that the 360 does not support...yet...
        8. That URL does not work. And yes, the Component cable is the best cable
        to use, if your TV supports it.
        9. The first generation games on a unit is not even using 13% if the units
        power. People that believes that the first generation graphics would blow
        are idiots. Compare SMB with SMB3 on Nes, Final Fantasy IV with Super Mario
        RPG on SNES, Tekken with Tekken 3 on Playstion, and so on. The games does
        have nice graphics even without a HDTV.
        10. Yes, if you place the unit on a hot place, it will overheat.
        Itīs not SO hard to figure out, and it also says so in the manual.
        But still, people are idiots...
    
    Q106 - Will the new Xbox be compatible with the old Xbox memory units? I'm
           asking this because I would like to play some of my old games on the
           new Xbox 360 and it would be a little bit boring having to play the game
           that I've already played on the Xbox.
    
    A - No, it is impossible to transfer your old saves to the new Xbox 360, at
        least at the moment. So you have to replay all old games again.
    
    Q107 - Why havīnt you written all points in Gaming Achievements? And why arīnt
           My game there?
    
    A - Because I donīt know all points yet, and I havīnt added all games yet.
        This is something that will take long time, but keep coming back.
    
    Q108 - How do I find that Secret Achievement in game X?
    
    A - I have no idea. Maybe Iīll add how to get them all later, but now Iīm
        concentrating on getting most games and their achievements on the list.
    
    Q109 - Why does Quake 2 have 0 in achievement points?
    
    A - Because they did it so.
    
    Q110 - Wait a minute, Quake 2 does not exist for Xbox 360! Liar liar pants on
           fire!!!
    
    A - It does. It followed a extra disc with it if you got Quake 4. But some
        stores seems to have "forgotten" to put it in...
    
    Q111 - Please sign the petition to bring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV:
           Turtles In Time to Xbox Arcade at
           http://new.petitiononline.com/11seven/petition.html !!!!!
    
    A - Already done, I was one of the first 150 that did it, now it have 757
        signs. Maybe itīs time for the reader to sign now?
    
    Q112 - What are the status of your FAQ?
    
    A - What do you mean by status?
        It was released on Gamefaqs at November 22. and then I had been working on
        it for a week. It went directly to the Top Ten Faq Pages at Gamefaqs.
        Today, 12/11/05, it is on place 4, with these games above:
        01 Dragon Quest VIII - PS2
        02 WWE SD vs Raw 06 - PS2
        03 Animal Crossing WW - DS
        The highest rank it have had was place number 1. I guess it was on place 1
        around 2-3 days when it was newly released.
        The latest version (0.90D) is 233K, but when you read this version 0.92
        will be out and be bigger.
        And that is all I can think of.
    
    Q113 - I was wondering whether it is possible to play system link with two 360s
           through the wireless adapter, and whether its possible to play system
           link with one 360 and one original xbox?
    
    A - It shall be possible to get two 360īs in system link with the wireless
        adapter, if both have one. Easier would be to connect them with an ordinary
        Ethernet cable. I donīt think that you can play with a Xbox and a Xbox 360
        in a system link.
