well i pulled the trigger. had to go to the best buy one town down to find it but its totally worth it. the wifi works great so far. no problems at all. i also picked up gears 2, call of duty (the last one, i forget the name, but the one everyone loved) and madden 10 just cause its cheap and i really miss madden. big problem though. i have an hdmi cable and when i hook it up to my tv my tv says something like "unusable signal" or something like that. i ran out and got another cable to make sure that was not the problem and had the same issues with the new cable. the odd part is that i had an old xbox like 2 years ago and im pretty sure i used the same hdmi cable on it. my tv is old and off brand so maybe thats the problem. anyways, the good news is that it now gives me the perfect excuse to go out and get a new tv. i cant go too big cause my entertainment center has only like 32 inches of room for a tv, and i want to keep that center. at least that means i wont be paying all that much.
