    So I am thinking about taking the plunge and getting broadband and 360 online and live, but I have a few questions....sorry if they are really obvious or stupid, but I'm a technical n00b.

    One thing I would like to do is download the backwards compatible software for some games like Halo and Halo 2 so I can play on live (I can't use my original X Box since I had it chipped to play Stubbs the Zombie and Land of the Dead on import). How easy is it? What steps do I have to take?

    Since I am in the UK, does anyone know if the market place is basically the same, or does each country have it's own place?

    Can I go onto other websites on x box other than market place?

    How easy is it to download movies, demos and stuff from market place? Do you have to pay?

    Can I play people from the US? Like if I wanted to play with any of you guys for example?

    Thats about it for now, any help would be appriciated :up:

    1- You need the HDD to have Backwards compatability.

    2- The marketplace changes for each region. They are all basically the same although the US Marketplace seems to get a few things a few days before the other markets.

    3- No. X360 will only connect to the marketplace. M$ might be bringing a web browser to the console in the future (if SONY has a web browser you can bet M$ will offer one)

    4- Very easy. You have to pay for full games and most game updates. Demos, trailers and some game update material is free however.

    5- You can play people from all around the world. If you want to play a specific person, just add them to your friends list then send a game invite.
