    Yupz, FPS games takes time to get used to using the game pad. For me coming from keyboard & mouse user, i'm still tryijng to get used to it.

    But already, i can see potential advantage of a game pad. movement speeds can be much better controlled using a game pad. and its much easier to snip using a gamepad, feels really natural after a while. (no hassle of multiple key press)

    I got bored of the car racing game, coz takes too long to get enuff money for better cars...heh. why can't they just give me a Evo right off the start???

    I'll be looking to get DOA

    Am I right to say that it will cost around $700++ in total to get what you are having now?

    Yes, around there, still cheaper than a gaming PC IMO. You are talking about one of the fastest consumer gaming processors around. With the ability to store 30 to 40 games inside the console, play divx & mpegs off the TV, internet, icq, FTP client. woah!

    Actually, there's now a X-Box to USB adaptor available (by hackers of course!), to allow you to use keyboard, mouse and even an external USB harddisk. This is really mind boggling.

    Hackers managed to run Linux off the X-Box. From Linux, you can use Netscape & ICQ, off your TV. You can use your X-Box connected to a LAN to play divx, mpegs off a remote computer.

    A lot of Singaporeans don't know the potential of the X-Box, most of the hackers are in the States & Australia. An MIT student even wrote a thesis on hacking the X-Box.

    But no software supporting it right? The keyboard and mouse only comes in handy when you want to install linux on the box.
