It is a 2D Zelda made 3D with LEGO's.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

I dont want my Nintendo games on other platforms. I like my Nintendo games right were they are on Nintendo platforms. Even though im not impressed with the "easy" difficulties of most all newer Nintendo titles I dont see other companies taking the reigns and the games coming out having that Nintendo feel to them. Heck look at the last ten years of Sonic..... um not very good at all.

damn that sound like a good deal. I might look into that. I shouldnt have to buy a warranty though i should be able to trust the hardware. The arcade model is more affordable though, I can always add on to it later . I want toejam and earl so bad and I have to have fable 2

You don't have to buy any extra warranties... the 3-year warranty comes with all Xbox 360 consoles (warranty only valid in the country of origin of the console, be sure to buy it at your local, authorized retailer. Same goes for Sony hardware. Nintendo doesn't seem to care, they honor their warranty almost everywhere lol)

$200 Arcade SKU
$100 120GB HDD
$60 Modern Warfare 2 Standard Edition
$50 extra Wireless controller
$2 RJ45 (aka Cat5.5 LAN cable)

$412 to get a similar console to the Modern Warfare 2 Edition ($399) of it... and the MW2 Edition has a bigger HDD (250 GB), and a cooler design...

wow i see, that's a way better deal. How long will this bundle be out? If my 360 would red ring after the warranty, would it be expensive to fix? LOL I'm so paraniod when it comes to spending a large stack of cash.

lol, out of warranty repairs are usually $100, Microsoft pays shipping, and gives you a 1 month Xbox LIVE Gold card for free, and depending on how mad you sound on the phone, even some free games lol, a friend once got 2 free games with his repair, plus the 1 month of Gold lol

the deal goes for as long as there are available, limited supplies... after that, the only other 250 GB unit would be the Forza 3 bundle... same deal, but Forza 3 instead of Modern Warfare 2... I would suggest that you pre-order it if you can ASAP, it's an awesome deal, even for current owners

Many second party, but little actual First Party from my understanding.

Actually is the other way around... Microsoft Game Studios is the recollection of all their first party studios, like Rare or Lionhead Studios... Bungie is now a second party (but Microsoft holds the rights to the Halo franchise), so while Halo 1 - 3 where first party, ODST would be second party now lol

@DarkG: Programming for the PS3 is a bit weird, which is why it took people so long to get good at it, and why a lot of older multisystem games (GTAIV included) looked noticably worse on PS3. While it's true that the PS3 has less DEDICATED memory for graphics, it can also run graphical information through the Cell, which is how it can pump out visuals at the level of quality seen in Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2. The 360 has maxed out its available power (even some third-party developers admit this), and Gears 2 (widely considered its best-looking game to date) looks inferior to the two PS3 titles I just mentioned. Obviously, graphics aren't everything to anybody with a brain, but I still want the facts clearly presented here. You can't always list specs and come to a clear conclusion, because Sony's designs are too unconventional for that lately.

Killzone 2 looks not very good on my TV, with the same HDMI cable than my 360, at 1080p... I doubt that game is running in HD natively, textures are noticeably low resolution, specially on buildings and vehicles... no matter how much the CPU helps, is not as good as a more advanced GPU... and textures-wise, all that matters is how much available bandwidth and memory you have, and the PS3 is noticeably worse on both aspects... add to that the fact that ATi GPUs get almost free 2x MSAA, while most PS3 games lack that, and use blur instead to cover jagged edges... and DX11 capabilities, like Tessellation Engine (my favorite so far, is impressive) run worse when emulated (just like with shaders and most GPU capabilities, is entirely hardware based, and even the cell lacks those capabilities at a hardware level...)

I know the PS3 is not maxed out yet (except probably textures-wise), but the Xbox 360 isn't maxed either (Gears of War 2 doesn't max it out either... 360's GPU just needs a driver update to enable the DX11 capabilities it has, just like the Radeon X1k and HD series on PC... DX11 games are coming, and the extra lighting and graphics details will be available on both DX10.1+ based PCs (with Windows Vista or better) and Xbox 360...

It runs in either 1080i or 720p natively.

Most PS3 games do, but then so do most 360 games. Some 360 games run natively in an even weirder resolution than that, though...six hundred-something.

natively is not the same resolution than the one displayed in the box... that's marketing only... and it isn't the one the PS3 or TV say either, that's the upscaled, outputted resolution... Killzone 2 is upscaled, and I bet it doesn't even get to 720p natively, a lot of pixelated textures and blurriness gives that impression...

Only a handful of Xbox 360, and even less PS3 games run at actual "true" HD resolutions (1360x720 or 1920x1080)... and the one with the weird resolution is Halo 3 due to the way the engine renders stuff, giving out a weird count...

I'm not sure what "in the box" means. Killzone 2 runs at 720p or 1080i natively. If you're running it at 1080p, you're not running it natively. I think it's de-interlacing before displaying, which might account for the problems you have.

You can't just say "I say it's not running in HD natively, therefore it's not run in HD natively, despite all the official information about this game that says it runs in HD natively." Maybe they were lying about other things too. Maybe it doesn't even run on the PS3! Bloody marketing tactics!

In the box means in the back of the game box, it states some "supported" resolutions... those aren't the native resolutions, just the onse they tested and looked great, plus marketing... native resolution is the actual resolution it's using... if it has low resolution textures (like Killzone 2), then it's running at a low resolution... because the native content is low resolution (that doesn't mean each texture must be 1920x1080!)

deinterlacing causes blurriness, but it doesn't explain the low resolution textures (to make it worse, is hyped as the most graphically-impressive game, while it's very far from it)... low resolution textures are to blame either on developer laziness, or hardware limitations....
