The view from Canada (The360Gambler)

I am a proud  father of 2 girls (aged 11 & 8) living in Dieppe, NB...That is in Canada (3 hours east of the Maine border) for all you Americans

I will blog on pretty much anything...so stay tuned!

I did the update this morning quickly before coming to work but did not have much time to try it out. What do you guys think of it? Me, the one thing that is not available yet in Canada is Netflix...that is one feature I hope we get soon in Canada. The group Party chat could be nice at times & I know the few games I play often like NHL 09 will be loaded on my HDD which might not make it quicker but should at least make it less noisier and for sure easier on the disk drive...

I am still unsure about the Avatars but I knew my kids will have fun with that.

The one COOL feature that I had not read about is that you can delete any game(s) from your profile that you have zero gamescore/achievements...This is a GREAT feature to remove games that you played briefly (I know for the first year or so of the 360 even trial arcade games stayed on your profile.)

So far so good, just played with it for a few minutes after I got home from work this morning. I look forward to exploring all the things it is capable of.

I like it!

The party system is very cool...I dropped in on Desired while he was playing NHL with a couple of other guys...

Cool...

There's an arcade game that uses your avatar that is good for kids. Called Kefler something or other. You're a giant helping these folks build their town. Definitely good thinking for the 5-10 year-old crowd.
