@Jeust: I have the uk version which doesn't work on my on my uk 360. Listed under backwards compatible on microsoft.com for uk 360's it says "silent hill 2: Dreams" which is the american title. the uk version is not listed in this section, so before i lay down cash and excess shipping costs i just want to know if the american xbox version will work in my uk 360.
@Jeust: Just wanna know if anyone has tried the u.s. version on a uk 360 as thats the only reason i can fathom why microsoft would list it under backwards compatible in the UK section. http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/games/backwardcompatibilitygameslist.htm
When you weigh all the pros and cons of getting one at launch, it definitely makes all the sense in the world to wait; launch lineups are usually weak, launch consoles are usually buggy, and launch lines/campouts can be hell. But for whatever reason, the systems I got at launch are the ones I remember the best. Not that they were even the best systems, it's just that bringing home a shiny new, acrid smelling console that hardly anyone on your continent has lain hands on is always an experience. That always turns into an all-nighter, even if it's with a shitty launch game.
This was pretty much my experience with the Dreamcast and Sonic Adventure, it's amazing how one can will oneself into enjoying a game just because your caught up in the delerium of a sleepless night combined with the culmination of a year of anticipation.
