I've never really seen that "Heroes" show, but everybody sure seems to like it. The free HD DVDs by mail do seem to come with some movies I'd actually like to have (like Constantine).

Heroes is a fun show and if you like sci-fi/superhero type characters you'll definitely want to check it out. The show looks amazing in HD - better than any TV series ought to look IMHO. When I bought my A2 back in February, the mail-in offer was only for 3 HD DVDs and the selection was rather dismal. The latest promo offers a much better variety to choose from.

Jason, I have read previously that the Xbox Elite is perhaps the most reliable of the three. Supposedly Microsoft takes extra time to test the innards for the Elite version, more so than the others.

Thanks again for all the advice, everyone. I ended up going with the 20 GB 360. I also got Oblivion GOTY and Catan as I was planning, in addition to Perfect Dark Zero, which was only like $20.

Might I suggest Guitar Hero 3 for your next game?

It's fun, the DLC will be good and it'll also be cheaper than Rock Band [which is looking more appealing each day].

XBox 1 can do 720p for some games, can it not?  I'm cheap.  I won't pay $350 for something I see as my "second" system.

That said, 360 is probably the way to go right now.
That's my opinion, not yours.

The most I've seen all Xbox games is 480p.
