Just need a bit of advice please. Anybody recommend any decent "budget" games for it (I have got Fight Night 4 and Call Of Duty 4 which came with it).
Also is it simple to connect to XBox live to play games online, it says it comes with Xbox live silver, so am I able to play online or will I have subscribe?
Bit of a novice when it comes to consoles, as I was mainly a PC gamer (usually Football Manager!), so any good tips and advice will be really appreciated!
You'll need to upgrade to xbox live Gold in order to play games online, the silver just lets you watch new content, download demos (although you have to wait a few days after launch now if you're not a gold member) and send messages, add friends etc... you can get Gold card codes online for approx £30 for the year (look out for the month free ones as well where you get 13 months for the price of 12.)
Depending on your router you may need to forward your ports (check portforward.com) but most dont have to.
Dont know what to recommend for budget games (i would have said COD4 is a must but you've got it) Newer games try Call Of Juarez 2, Batman Arkham Asylum, COD 5. If you can get away with baseball try The Bigs 2 which has just come out a couple of weeks ago and is only £15 in Asda. Great fun when theres a few round having a drink.
Setting up 'media sharing' is also good if you download films/ music and want to play them on the TV
