you dont really need heatsets, but controllers would be a good idea!!!

Don't see the need for loads of headsets, most games will allow one person online at a time, but for local multiplayer you can get an additional controller.

i thought you would need a headset for each person playing if your on a online game all playing together???

you need a way to connect to the net e.g. an ethernet cable or the xbox wireless kit ......

charging kit for the controller (saves on batteries)

anything else ya want is pure choice

e.g. Hard drive (if your getting arcade you will only get memory card)

all i know its the 60gig hard drive one,when you say xbox wireless kit do you mean like a router,becouse i have a wireless router for my wii do you think this will work:thinking:

BTW it was nice of Sainsbury's to offer you the xbox.

you'll need a HDD ...u can get a 20GB in comet apparently for £20

4 controllers obvo
if u want all to be wireless you will need batteries and charging kits or 4 plug n play kits...
best here would be 2 batteries 2 plug n charge kits and swap leads about Blah sell batteries for £3.95 for pink or £4.95 for blue
dont need 4 headsets not many games u can go online with 4 players with and to be fair you'll all be in the same room....dont see the point just get 1

I'm pretty sure there are very few games where you can play more than one person online at a time from the same xbox (if that makes sense). I wouldnt bother buying any headsets, most of the time its just kids shouting racial abuse anyway

HDD = Hard Drive

you will need it for online and for 4 accounts on the 360

Oh you will also need a XBL subscription...about £26 from Jasper is cheapest
