Xbox 360

I got my 360 yesterday and have been enjoying it. This truly is next gen for the consoles and gaming experience. Nothing has been created like this before. My brother and I had luck going to a local Walmart and getting #13 out of 14 premium bundles. There were some Core systems that were taken by the late comers. They had limited game selection and didn't have Perfect Dark Zero, the game I was looking for.

We went to Rogers and rented Madden. Great game and online features. We also downloaded demos of NBA Live and Kameo. We played the Hexic HD puzzle game that came on the harddisk and downloaded the trial of Billards. It kept us busy all day for sure, but today I'm going to try and find PD0.

I also have it working with my tv setup and the universal media controller. Very nice to turn it on and off from one controller. If you can get one of these systems, don't wait. Go test it out at one of the kiosks before you buy if you want. See you online!

Mazda MX5 gets a folding hardtop

When folding hardtop convertibles like the Lexus SC 430, upcoming VW Eos and Volvo C70 hit the scene, Mazda started worrying about the MX-5 being competitive in the market. Enter the Mazda MX5 Hardtop, on schedule to be an available option for the 2007 model. The MX-5 Hardtop is Mazda’s answer to the growing number of consumers who prefer the comfort and quiet of a hardtop convertible over a traditional ragtop. No other changes to the body are likely, which means the top will add some weight. Expect to see this model available for an additional $2-$3K on top of the base MX-5 price.


VW to make body shells for the Porsche Panamera

Porsche has announced that it will capitalize upon its part-ownership of Volkswagen to help bring the Panamera to the market. Volkswagen, which already makes the body shell for the Touareg’s Porsche Cayenne sibling, will be enlisted to make the body shell for the Panamera, as well. VW’s Wolfsburg plant will stamp, paint and ship the shells to Porsche when production kicks off for the 2009 model year, cutting Porsche’s previously reported $1.2 billion development cost estimates for the vehicle. The Panamera will bow for the first time at Geneva next spring.


Mercedes announces armored version of S-Class

Mercedes’ new special armored protection version of the S-Class is officially called the S 600 Guard. The name is apt because this Benz can deflect military grade small arms fire, protect occupants from grenade shrapnel and outrun assailants thanks to a 517-hp biturbo V12. Discretion is one of the best weapons in the S-Guard’s arsenal, however, as the armored vehicle appears on the outside to be your everyday S-Class. Mercedes didn’t happen to mention what the S 600 Guard will cost, but if you have enough money to buy one then you probably need it.
