The reason I ask is I don't have a 360 or PC. I want to get the PS3 version of ME2 in January, so was curious on just how much I'd be missing out on by skipping out on ME1 (involuntarily. I'd play it if I could.) I wonder how they'll be putting the stuff that's supposed to carry over from 1 into 2 into the PS3 version. =P

I'm interested to see how they do that too.

Something like 700 events in ME2 are directly related to decisions you made in part 1.

Granted not all of them are key plot points and most of them are sort of small references and the like that benefit the return player.

..........And rooting around Bioware's site turns up nothing other than 'this stuff will be announced at a later date.' I know, I know, it's at least two months away, no need to get impatient.

I did hear from uh, somewhere that the PS3 version will get you all the DLC too. For sixty bucks, it better. =P

I only played dlc for dragon age and ME1.

Kinda meh.

I guess it's not a bad deal for getting the game so late and 1/2 the story :)

It may be a different story in that case, but we'll just have to wait and see what Bioware does ultimately.

I have a feeling they'll just use the default choices you get if you don't import a character in the 360 version.

Which is bullshit, because no one should miss out on the awesomeness of Wrex. :P

No hard drive? Dude, I thought the same thing. I had one of the old units that came with a 20 and filled that without even trying. I bought the ffxiii bundle with the 250 gig when that old one went red ring on me. Already put 80 gigs on that one. Oh, and installing games makes them load much faster, which I don't think works with a flash drive.

Digging through Amazon comments found someone saying Bioware may implement some sort of prologue thing, where you can make those choices in ME1 without actually playing ME1. Kind of like an interactive novel thing. Again nothing official, but that would be better than nothing or even just plugging in 'default' choices on your behalf.

Enough topic derailment from me. Don't cheap yourself out on the hard drive. You may think you won't use a lot of space but I thought the same thing when nearly getting a low-end PS3. And then I looked around PSN, installed games etc. I'm sure XBLA is no different in that regard. :P

Especially with xbox add on drives being a lot of money if you decide to upgrade in the future.

I forget to mention the most awesome game on the 360; Earth Defense Force 2017. This shit is crazy.

For many RPG fans, even though it's not an RPG, I would recommend Bioshock. It has a familiar stylistic flair to many jRPGs, incredible unique storytelling too. Yes, at its core its an FPS, but it's sort of an "FPS for people who hate FPSs". It was the first game I bought for the 360, and it remains one of my favorites to this day.

The reason I say I don't need a hard drive is because I have absolutely no intention of using Live.  In fact, my xbox will not at all be hooked up to the internet.  I have no desire to get Live or play online, or download anything.  Honestly, even if I wanted to, I don't have the resources to do it.  And since that seems to be the only real reason I'd ever need a hard drive, I'm gonna save myself the expense.

You're ignoring everyone talking about installing games. That doubles as another reason to wait for a good deal on the newer HDD-less versions though: their disc drives are quieter, so that at least takes one of the advantages of installs.

I didn't ignore it.  I thought I had put it in but it seems I accidentally deleted it.  That is not enough of a reason for me to pay the extra money (basically a few games.)  Unless we are talking about absolutely obscene load times (15 sec+) I really won't be bothered.

A lot of GotY games have DLC included. These games can run up to multiple gigs, and require you to install them. The Fallout 3 DLC, for example, is around 7 Gigs. Better to gra a HD 360 now rather than find out you need it later and get gouged for buying it separately.
