Want to thank you for putting me in the spot light was very shocked to say the least. And would have to say if your not a 360 owner get the best thing going as the 360 community is strong and striving and have the greatest gamers in the world.

I couldn’t agree more! The community and the members in it are what make the Xbox 360 my platform of choice. I’ll be following up on that exact sentiment some time in the future!
