I know those of you who have been keeping up with my rambling probably knew I was trying to buy one, and I finally did. Got an xbox 360 with a 20GB HDD, wireless controller, Hi Def AV cables, power brick and headset all for just $175! I've been looking at how much 360's are going for on ebay and most go from $195 to $205 so I felt very fortunate to find an auction where I won one for $175. Shipping is $19 and I bought an independent 2 year warranty for an additional $30 so I don't need to worry about the red ring of death.
and to you guys about COD...i think wicked has the highest K/D on my whole friends list, and he doesnt even play very often. i think i remember seeing him up around 2.0. (i havent played for awhile). i do have him beat on winning streak though. back when they started keeping track, i had the third highest streak in the world ( i think its like 135+ games or something) . now everyone and their moms are prob ahead of me
