After what seems like ages, we've finally got Broadband on order, so will be on Live in about 2 weeks I guess.

Had a real quick look for a Start Kit online last night, cheapest I could find was 29.99, surely they must be cheaper than that? I did see an offer of the kit with Forza for 59.99, but not sure about that one.

Anyway, I have got these Live games:

Halo 2
PGR2
Juiced
Pro Evo 4
Outrun
Topspin

I think that's it at the mo, unless you lot can suggest some others worth getting?

Gamertag etc to follow.

Tiscali in the end. Unlimited 1Meg for 14.99 a month. I use there modem etc, but it saves me the upfront cost of getting one myself.

Well, the modem etc arrived today, so hopefully this evening I'll be able to get it all set up and working.

Yeah I've deleted most of mine off the list because most of them I bump into once and never see again. The ones I keep are the people I know such as friends/family offline and the guys on here. That way at least I'm not playing with people off my friends list and thinking "um, and you are ?" ;-)

Unfortunatly not. The best you can do is a private game with friends and no stats involved. Apparetly the 360 will offer that option though.

The game's dull and people online aren't much better.

If you think you can stomach having little American kids shouting "I oWNed U BritiSH FAGZ" everytime they kill you, you might be able to get soem enjoyment out of it.

Burnout 4's my favourite game online at the moment. Everyone's friendly on there, haven't come across any screamy kiddies or people who take the game too seriously, yet.

Farcry's out on Friday as well, that looks excellent.
