Many people consider themselves "experts" when it comes to knowing all about the Xbox 360. XeWoN has sent in the following list of "tips"… which cover Xbox 360 features that are largely unknown to most people.
That was a complete waste of time and bandwidth....FAIL! Seriously, if you didn't find most...or all...of this out within a day of owning your 360 (most within the first HOUR), you're a real 'tard.
I dunno that music while playing old xbox gaems ws new 2 me kinda like the fact the sound overlaps can hear the game that way and just tune out their music.... the rest seems pretty standard tho.
I think you'll find that this is approved, not fail - If you take your blinkers off you'll be able to see alot more clearly.
Here I was thinking new info on te 360. :( What a waste of my time.
Good for newcomers in Xboxland.
That's a bubble for you (much needed by the looks of it !)
The camera theme trick at the end, I will check that out. (I bought a camera for RB6:V, way back when thinking it was the future)
that guys face just about puts me in a rampage!
You know, I'd like a sleep timer feature.
That would be something neat.
There is an idle-timer auto-shutdown.
Goto System Blade, select "Console Settings" then "Shutdown" and you'll find the "Auto Off" Setting. It is a default of 6-hours.
It would be nice to be able to change that to any number we want (so you can fall asleep watching a movie or listening to music, or know it wont waste energy if you forget to shut it down).
6 hours does seem a bit to long to me.
Yeah that's what I ment. Something shorter than 6 hours.
Like 30 minutes? 90 minutes?
Life would be a little bit better. Hehe.
This guy is the definition of geek
Would that work with split screen? Why else would you want to do that?-- ideas?
You wouldn't. If it is probably more of a side effect than a feature.
You dont need to start the music before starting an original xbox game. When playing an original game you can press the guide button and access the music option. I was listening to some Ozzy while playing ninja gaiden black. I like the custom music option for all my games. Works for demos and live arcade as well.
Yes, you do need to do it before starting the game, because the normal 360 guide button features aren't available while an XBOX game is playing.
"Shut Down Feature. Shut down is featured in 2 places on the Xbox 360. You can, of course, turn it off from the power button, using a media remote or by DISCONNECTING THE POWER." --What kind of a retard would turn off their 360 by unplugging it?
"--What kind of a retard would turn off their 360 by unplugging it?" An angry mother who hates her child playing his 360 all the time, of course! lol
I'm sorry - maybe people who have never used technology before would need such an "unknown" list of secret*** tips. But, if you didn't know this stuff before this dude pointed them out - you could very well be borderline retarded. If not fully blown.
Wow no $#*@ sherlok, im sure all 360 owners knew this at least I do.
and it you didn't...you learn something everyday!
I wish the 360 had a shutdown feature like my tv, where I could tell it to shut off in 45 minutes like when im watching a movie and fall asleep.
I don't even own a 360 and still knew these expert secrets.
This is the stupidest article I have ever read.
It's not the STUPIDEST. It's getting up there, though. I hate that this is in the top 3. That just makes more people click on it. Oh well, like somebody says, maybe some newbs will learn these secrets.
and here i was thinking 360 had some secrets that would help it win this console war.
I think you'll find the site and article are more inclined at getting people to click on the links after the few Tips, rather than supply factual information, a good way to generate click-through's and PPC on a website. Notice their inclusion in the list and at the end of the list, almost as if they were "part of the list" I'm currently doing some research in to PPC (pay per click) at the like at the moment, and this is one method used.
Ok I dont even own an XBOX and I knew this! lol
I wonder how useless the PS3 Top Secret List is gona be to me!
were for eight-year-olds.
"The only problem is that the music from the game will still be playing, and can overlap your music." <-Wrong. I don't know what game this fool was playing but, my xbox 360 (A launch system) has the great ability to turn off game music in place for my loaded music when MY music is playing automatically. And, say this was the case. You can turn off the game music.
Xbox ORIGINAL game NOT 360 game. In case you didn't know ;)
And it's COMPONENT for crying out loud.
