My Very First Console

Dan Computers

A very (very!) generous friend of mine gave me his old Xbox 360. I’ve never had a console before – my earliest computer was an Atari 800XL, which doesn’t really count. Of course, this meant I had to also take the first step into the HD format war, and while I believe that Blu-Ray Disc is ultimately the right way to go (and I will be getting my Blu-Ray player sometime soon), it made sense to snag a deal where I could get the HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360 at a reasonable price, and that way I can enjoy the HD-DVDs for movies that won’t be on Blu-Ray anytime soon. (Like, Universal Studios and Paramount/Dreamworks films.) If you want my gamertag on Xbox Live, send me an email and I’ll let ya know what it is!
