    If it's below 26T then that would be great. Hope the games are cheaper than the US version

    My guess would be that the RP Xbox 360 would be the US version that's priced the same as the Japanese version (around PHP 27K++ This is the premium package not the basic core). The games would be the US version priced at 60 USD.

    I just hope that they allow RP residents to create XBox Live accounts or launch a local XBox Live service.

    But personally, I'm more excited by the Nintendo Wii and the innovative gaming promise it holds. Time has a very nice article about testing the new Wii gameplay. :D

    I've seen the graphics of the Xbox 360 and am wowed by it. However i'm a RPG gamer at heart, and more RPG's come out for the Playstation, so I guess i'm waiting till November for that box. However, hopefully prices on the Xbox 360 come down by then and i'll be able to afford both. *nudges Dave_D*
