Just wondering how you use a xbox 360. Do you connect it up to the TV or a PC monitor. Kind of a silly question but I don't know anything about it. What kind of controller do you use. Is it easier than a PC mouse. Anything else I should know about it.Thanks
Richard

I have a PS3 rather than an XBox. You connect it to the TV. The controller is easy to use for most actions like driving or running and jumping. Shooting is a bit more difficult and less accurate than with a mouse, but you get used to it. I like games on the PC but there are some great games that are not available for it.

Kjos, there are games that are exclusive to consoles. With the PS3, it would be Uncharted, Demon Souls and The Last Guardian, to name a few. I bought my PS3 because I had to play The Last Guardian, but I also got Uncharted 1 & 2, Demon Souls and a few others. XBox has exclusives as well. Most games are probably available for both.

rmelone, I buy most of my PS3 games pre-owned and trade them inn after playing them unless I want to keep them if I would like to play again, this I rarely do.

kjos, consoles can be connected also to monitors but you need to connect the sound somewhere else unless the monitor has sound. I have my PS3 sharing the same sound equipment as the PC and a switch to use one or the other. The controller comes with the equipment, it took me sometime to get use to it, at the beginning the cursor was flying all over the screen, however after playing one not too difficult games I had no problems any more. One can adjust the sensitivity of the movements to low avoiding the flying cursor. Now I much prefer controllers to mouse and keyboard.

I am not sure if I would like L.A. Noire, I'll wait a little for opinions of Boomers and to watch part of a walktrough before deciding.

Carrie,

I agree. Anything "noir" intrigues me too. Love the old Black and white movies. I saw LA Noir advertised and rushed to read about it only to find that it won't be available for PC frown

No, I decided not to after reading some of the comments about its "action" components. Grand Theft Auto is a game that never tempted me. LOL Too bad, because I loved the sound of noir!

Reenie,

I read that one is able to skip action parts, maybe someone who played this game can tell you more.
