What should be bought for Xbox 360?


I want to know what should be bought because I want the best experience. I want wireless capabilities with online and a good headset for under or around 100. Don’t be shy to tell me what I need. Price range I’m willing to pay is 600-850! So include games old,new and future. Thanks!

P.S. I know its late to be getting an Xbox but my old PS3 is not doing it for me anymore!

  1. first of all you need a wireless router to play online,and with xbox the wi-fi isnt built in so you also need a wireless adapter which is about 80-90$. Then you need to buy an xbox live membership which is $50 a year.Also, if you have an HD tv you can buy HDMI cables which go for about 40 to 50$.

    Some games that i reccomend:

    Gears of War 2- 30$

    halo 3- 30$

    call of duty modern warfare 2- $50

    fallout 3- $20

    bioshock 2- 50$

    and all the guitar hero and rock band games are very fun.

  2. I’ve heard hundreds of people on xbox live talking about how great Turtle Beach headsets are. Some are lower priced and other are really expensive, just go to their website. People said how amazing it was when they played Modern Warfare 2 that they could hear footsteps and everything alot clearer and had better advantages. I’m hoping to get one soon :] I’d also say a wireless adapter for your internet, but I always have to retry connection and get kicked out of games and lag, it sucks so just hook your xbox right up to your router. I’d get the xbox elite it has alot more memory, and if you play alot of games that will come in handy especially if you get downloadable content for some games. Also get wireless controllers, those are amazing.

    My favorite games are Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Assassins Creed, Assassins Creed 2.

    I’ve played many games those are just my favorite. I know Battlefield Company 2 is great, Borderlands is good, Red Dead Redemption is awesome! (can’t wait to get it myself), Gears of Wars 2 is pretty okay, The new Street Fighter from last year was eh okay in my book, Splinter Cells are good, I’m looking forward to COD: Black Ops. Everyone is crazy about Halo I don’t find it interesting lol. UFC 2010 was alright, I only played the Demo though. I’ve heard Bioshock is a great game.

    I’ve played Condemned 2, and it scared the living hell out of me. Lol after awhile I couldn’t play. I’m a wuss, its pretty intense though and I’ve never played a game like that before. I also heard Dead Space is good. Alan Wake is supposed to be great. If you like racing games Split Second just came out.

    And I could go on and on and on, but what good would that do?

  3. a cooling fan most defianitly, they cost about 10 dollars

    as for headset i got a good one for $7.49 on ebay

    i dont care what anybody says, they are a good headset (unless you wear glasses then they get uncomfortable on the ears)

    good games would be halo, gears of war, and call of duty

  4. Well it depends on what player you are. If you are more single player i recommend games like Fallout 3, Fable 2, Mass Effect 1 and 2. Focus on things that would be very compatible. I recommend buying a cheap headset because I really don’t notice a difference between my own $20 headset and my more expensive bluetooth. It’s better to just get a cheap headset. If you are more interested in Multiplayer games I highly recommend getting Gears of War 1-2, Halo 3, and both Modern Warfare games. If your more like me i highly recommend getting a variety of games. Some i highly recommend include Fallout 3, Mass Effect, Halo 3, and Modern Warfare 1 and 2.

  5. The Xbox 360 elite comes with all of that except the wireless online capability and a wired headset for 300 bucks.

    You can buy the wireless network capability with either of these two peripherals, depending on what you need.

    Older Discontinued Wireless a/b/g

    Wireless a/b/g/n

    If you need a wireless headset and can’t stand the wired one that hooks up to the controller.

    There’s also a limited edition bundle with two controllers and the elite console out as well

    As for games:

    If you like RPG games

    Final Fantasy XIII

    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Cheap)

    Fallout 3

    Fable 2


    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

    Halo 3

    Mass Effect 1/2

    The Orange Box

    Assasin’s Creed 1/2

    Left 4 Dead


    Rock Band 2

    Guitar Hero (Series)


    (Whatever you like, I hate sports games lol).

    Btw, I personally think you’d be better off upgrading to the PS3 Slim, but the 360 isn’t bad of course.I mean the only exclusives I mentioned here are Halo and Fable 2 (Mass Effect, Oblivion and Left 4 dead are on PC)–that says something.Gears of War is overrated by the way.
