Just to remind you guys on what I said.  "
Yeah, you're right. It was a mock-up by a member and it was completely blown out of proportion, everyone thinking it was real. But, I love the look of it (should have hired him!).

Hopefully we officially found out what it looks like soon...

I think Cliff B. said there won't be any front-end ranking system, and also no clan support. But, it does use TrueSkill in matchmaking behind-the-scenes.

iTouch is good, iPhone is better.

But, if you just want a portable media player - it's great. I recommend however buying the new version of the iPod Touch, which has an internal speaker, and external volume controls (could have a few more features, not sure). Those two extras are worth the $$$, since that's what the first model was lacking.

"i hope you know that there is and will be tons of free themes to download on live..............FOR FREE. 
Gears2 will probably launch with a free theme like the first gears"
Maybe, but it clearly says "exclusive" and specially made for the NXE (making it "special"). I just don't understand what people see in this RC car thing. If you use it on a daily basis, maybe it'll be worth it (but then again, you'd be crazy to). Honestly, just pre-oder where you want -- doesn't matter to me.

"Aww, this is cheap. Apparently Gamestop has a pre-order deal that you get an exclusive theme for the New Xbox Experience (meaning, it'll probably be cool and animated). Isn't EB Games in Canada the same as Gamestop? Cheap!

That's 10x better than a cheap RC car ..."
You want a 2 megabyte theme instead of an RC car?? 
.....wow
"
Umm ... yes. A cheaply made piece of plastic that I'll use once (and'll have a 2 minute battery), or an animated theme for my Dashboard that I'll see/use everytime I turn my console one, assuming it looks nice.

Do we even have Best Buys in Canada? I've never seen one."
Are you serious? At least in/near Toronto, there are TONS of Best Buys. But I already pre-ordered from EB Games -- so I'm not sure if they'll give me my money back, or if it's even worth going through the hassle for a little RC car I'll never use.

"Is there a high def download somewhere?"
Well, it's official release was today, so you can get it @ the official website.

HD WMV *
SD WMV *

(* Windows Media Player required, "Save Link" for download)

It may even be on the Marketplace -- haven't checked.

Oh ... man. Thanks so much for the video, it was awesome. Looks like the story truly is more fleshed out this time around, which is nice. Tai looks cool - but won't his armour be an advantage in MP (no side headshots)?
