Falcons & 360s, + LIVE continued…

Posted by anjilslaire on December 30, 2007

Finally found my elusive Falcon chipset, planted firmly in the beautiful shell of an Xbox 360 Elite (so yes, I did upgrade).

However, after downloading several demos from the Marketplace last night, I returned this afternoon to find myself unable to connect to LIVE to get more. As it turns out, there are technical difficulties currently rendering the service unavailable. I blame this on the zillions of 14 year-olds clogging the internetz with their pitiful Comcast connections (6+mb! Blazing fast my ass…) trying to live the Life Comcastic and playing Halo 3 after the holiday cheer has subsided..

I shall wait to get my online game on until the flood has subsided

Falcons & 360s

Posted by anjilslaire on December 28, 2007

So I received an Xbox 360 Pro for Christmas this week, which is exactly what I wanted. I knew that Microsoft has recently switched to a 65nm chip to improve efficiency & reduce heat, so naturally I want one of these new machines under the tree. In fact, I’ve discovered a method to determine what kind of beast is inside the box without violating the packaging and raising the ire of the local Target return Nazis. In this case, lower wattage is better, apparently. Tim Allen would be ashamed.

Of course, the system my beloved obtained for my entertainment was manufactured in early August, so I promptly returned allegedly unopened to the aforementioned giant retail bullseye. They didn’t even know how to open the box to ensure the contents.

So my quest begins to find one of these rare birds to begin my adventures in Tamriel. A knowledgeable clerk at another store understood my plight, but only had falcon Elite systems available, so I need to decide if I desire this elusive beast enough to upgrade…
