So I know this sounds crazy, but since Sonic Adventure 2 HD and Nights was coming out tomorrow, I was wondering what time the Xbox Live Arcade usually releases games. Will they release them at midnight most likely, or do they wait for later in the afternoon?

It's usually pretty early, I remember Castlevania HD being available around 6am Central time the day it was released....since I was frothing at the mouth waiting for it.

If not that early, usually in the morning hours I think.

So, any new news on Internet Explorer for 360? I remember they announced it in the spring for a fall release, but I haven't heard any updates since then (and it's now fall).

I'm questioning why to bother with a web browser for a cnsole knowing that the browser is a pain in the ass, and also navigating and typing in a console with a control pad or those tiny keyboard is even more painfull. Seriously, when Microsoft announced IE for XBox 360, it was a total silence. Also, no news. But it will surely be part of one of those dashboards updates they do each season... Try to wait for the winter's one.

The reason for my interest, is because right now I'm relegated to using my 3DS for web browsing (whatever MS puts out for the 360 is guaranteed to be better than what the 3DS offers).

I'm hoping it'll have the ability to run videos. BTW, I love the 360's YouTube app, but I'm hoping to be able to use Veoh once they get the browser up. It'll probably have other advantages over the 3DS browser as well. Being from MS, I'd expect it to easily outperform what we've seen on gaming devices so far.

The web browser is live. It takes a bit to type anything in, which isn't surprising (and can be gotten used to), but other than that it loads fast (at least Wikipedia does, that's all I did on my first use), has an easy to understand & use layout, and is much better than either the 3DS', Wii's, or PS3's browser by miles. Next up, to see if it runs flash and/or video sites. Oh, you also get the option to use the mobile version of a website if you want to

The browser works better than I expected it to. I don't know how frequently I'll actually use it but it's nice to have.

Hey guys, IGN just posted their Halo 4 Review, and gave it a 9.8/10 ("Amazing")!
Reviewer Ryan Mccaffrey said it was the best Halo game ever and quite possibly the best game to come out on any platform this year! Oh, Kid Icarus: Uprising better watch out!

Makes the next 6 days or so of waiting VERY painful!

AC 3 and Liberation will make the wait easier but yeah I absolutely can't wait for Halo 4.

Ok I know this might seem like a dumb question but I am not sure of the answer. I just transferred all my data from my old Xbox 360 to my new R2D2 model via the transfer cable. Since the new Xbox can't use the old Hard Drive I am thinking of selling it to a friend of mine since he has an older Xbox model. So when I transferred everything to my new Xbox did that wipe the old hard drive of everything or do I have to manually delete the stuff on the hard drive before I sell it?

If i remember correctly from when i transferred to my Slim, everything gets wiped (except maybe your XBL profile info ... not sure about that now that i think about it).

Halo 4 has surprised the hell out of me. I expected it would be very good but it's even better than I had hoped, actually my favorite game of the year right now with only Hitman left that could possibly change my mind. This game has pulled me away from Assassin's Creed 3 and I don't know as I'll be going back anytime soon. Just finished the campaign recently and will be digging into multiplayer in the next few days. My gamertag is NYYanks3621.

Having been Wii-only so far this generation I've decided that there are too many games I've missed out on so I'm planning on buying a 360 soon, hopefully before Christmas. I do however have a few noob-ish questions that I haven't found a straight answer for online that hopefully someone here won't mind answering.
The bundle I'm interested in comes with Skyrim as a download. Does anyone know how big that download is? I'm guessing it's several gigabytes, which brings me to my next question: is it possible to pause a download, turn the console off and resume it another day? My internet tends to get very slow in evenings. If Skyrim is going to take a while to download I'd rather download it in chunks when my internet is speedy rather than have it take too long and have my connection grind to a halt, thus making it take even longer!
Also, I'm a bit confused by Xbox Live accounts. I'm not too fussed about online multiplayer but I do want to be able to download games and DLC. I'm pretty sure a free account will be good enough for that, but are there any features that I'd be locked out of without a Gold account?
Thanks in advance for helping me out. Hopefully I'll be able to contribute to this thread properly soon!

Well I was actually in the exact situation as you are in a year ago, my friend. I too got a 360 at Christmas last year and I haven't been disappointed! As for Skyrim, I have no idea about the size of it. But it is a bloddy massive game so I'm sure it is 10 + gb so it will take quite a while to download. As for downloading it, it only seems to download if you are on the dashboard (or menu) of the system, so maybe you should leave your system on overnight while downloading (and i may be wrong about that) but if it can't download for any reason (the xbox isn't on, internets too slow, you're playing a game etc.) it will just pause downloading and resume again when it is available to.
As for Xbox Live accounts, you do need a subscription if you want to do anything online basically. I would recommend gold if you can afford to sustain it, because if you have subscribed on silver (or whatever the downgraded subscription is called) you can't do online play (even tough you're not too fussed about that) but I am pretty certain you can download games and dlc, although you are not eligible to weekly deals (which aren't that great anyway).

So I hope that answers your question clearly. If you have anymore feel free to ask!
