Click to read.The Xbox 360 is coming out in mere days, not that most people will be able to get their hands on one. Apparently there was nothing to be learned from all the previous launches because Microsoft is shipping way under expectations once again. (Don\'t get cocky Sony, I\'m looking at you too.) Any store that took more than a handful of reservations are probably making some pretty tough calls this week. I actually feel bad for retailers, for a change. There are many who really do try hard to make customers happy and I am sure they hate to disappoint them. But, being the sheep we are, we will just pick one up in the next wave, or the one after that. Microsoft will keep being rich and we will be disappointed again when the Xbox 3.14159 comes out. Now I will step off my soapbox and get back in line for my 360.

Lots of people are curious about the 360\'s hard drive and what they can do with it. It almost seems as if there is a whole group of people out there that heard about the X-box modding but never jumped on the bandwagon. Now with the 360 coming out they think they might want to give it a shot. I guess I am too much of a wuss. Not because I am afraid of the law. I just can\'t imagine letting anybody put their hands in a machine I just paid four to five hundred smackers for. Aaron wrote JP to clear things up a bit further.

Keep checking back here at GamesFirst! We\'ll have the skinny on the 360 next week after launch. Once we all get our hands on one we will be able to answer all your questions. Even if I have to take Jeremy\'s 360 apart myself.

Our buddy Joe wrote in with a question that not only inspired a response from Aaron but Chris as well. Usually a good quiche is the only way to get a response out of both of those guys.

I think I\'ll wrap this mailbag up with a shout out for Carl. Carl, you owe me Five dollars.

I reviewed a Warhammer game for the PS2. Kinda hated it. This one on the PC better not suck, or else I am taking back your shout out. You hear me Carl? I giveth, I taketh away.

Seriously guys, thanks for the letters. I expect to hear your thoughts on the 360 next week. Don\'t be shy. It\'s e-mail, practically anonymous: mailbag[AT]gamesfirst.com
