Erm... Maagic....yes... Magic...

Errrm, Charlie; Please explain it for me as I still don't have an effing clue.
Well Basically the Xbox 360 can be connected to a Home Network... So basically you Xbox 360 is connected to your PC, this can be done via a Router... That Router whether it is wired or wireless, connects both a PC (Multiple) and the Xbox 360 to the Internet, but it also allows if you have Windows Media Player 11 Installed on your PC, to stream Videos or Music or Pictures from your PC to your Xbox 360...
I just use my old, decrepit original Xbox and a copy of Xbox Media Centre for my PC-to-telly multimedia watching needs. Less of a system resources hog than the 360's implementation of it too, from my experience.

But hey. To each their own.
That's a good deal, although if I remember correctly, you don't like racing games so maybe looking for a package without Forza being the "big" ***le would be an idea, otherwise that's a lot of money for only 2 games.
Thinking more along the lines of Bioshock mysen, I just need to find a good pick n mix deal.
Hey, Zonerunner! Have called on MSN a few times in recent days with no sign of you - I presume you are cramming in 360 time!
I had wondered why I hadn't seen you in a few days - guess who forgot to turn on MSN?

This little bundle here presents superior value for money in terms of quantity. Four games (one of which was only released on Friday), an extra controller and is only a fiver more.

However, if you were after specific ***les, it might be worth checking in GAME. They do a premium console with two games of your choice for £279.99 last I checked. Not as much free stuff, but I do believe BioShock is one of the ***les you can "pick'n'mix" with.

I'll keep my eye out for any BioShock related bundles on thar intarwebz if you would prefer.
Right, so what kit and caboodle do I need to get online? My laptop will blow up if I plug my 360 into it! I need some wireless routing.

Btw, plus rep for the clever bugger who can find me the cheapest deal for:

- Whatever I need to go online
- XBOX360 premium console
- Gears of War
- Guitar Hero 2
- Bioshock
- Crackdown

Preferably through Amazon as well, but the best deal is the best deal!

Would you be having this downstairs mate? cos you could run a cable from your current Router to the 360...
It needs to be upstairs mate or Mrs SHRLFC will moan about never being able to watch TV.
Right you have cable broadband don't you... Do you currently have a router?? I guess it isn't wireless...
Virgin Media. 10mb, just doesn't run like that due to my laptop being not very good.
That's not too bad then. I will just get going with the console for now and then intergrate the live part of things when I know what I'm doing. I will price things up on amazon and see what Thursday brings.
I'm selling my 360 Dan, I love the console to bits, just don't have ANY time to play on it.

It's the premium pack, with 2 wireless pads, headset etc etc

Games are:

Saints Row

Test Drive unlimited
