Finally, after 10 months, the XBox I won at the Italian MVP Open Days 08 has a monitor: a Dell 27” 2709W Widescreen monitor.


Last December I tried plugging the Xbox in the Cinema Display with no success, and in his comment to the post, Jordan, an ex-colleague from the 9 months I worked in New Zealand, suggested I bought a standard monitor with all the connectors I needed: and he suggested a Dell 24” monitor.
After 6 months I followed his suggestion, and I went a bit further, and I bought the bigger version, the 27” monitor. This way I can also enjoy watching movies from the couch and playing with the Wii.

So far I started playing with Halo3 and a car racing game, but nothing more: any advice you can share with a novice Xbox 360 owner?

I also registered to XBox live and here is my GamerCard:

I might do that too. Right now my XBox 360 is still plugged in to my old crappy 2nd hand CRT television.

Oh and if you're looking for fun games to play, try Overlord (part II is out now too) or Fallout III . And if you like puzzle games look for Braid on xbox live.

I can confirm, your console works fine :-)

@Melden: I'll give them a look

@Ugo: Now I can confirm it myself as well :)

BioShock is one of my favorite single player games of all time - that's a must-play. Also, if you've not played The Orange Box yet, check that out.

Burnout Paradise is great fun if you're looking for a racing game and you can get it pretty cheap now.

And, of course, Rock Band 2. :)

I sent you a friend request; you'll see it next time you log in. I'm Paraesthesia (like my web site).

You have to get Battlefield 1943. It's good fun. Think it's only £8 on download :)
