i'm sorry...but i have never heard of a dumber idea in my life.

Someone out there is going to kill their battery multiple times doing this. And if the engine has to be on...their going to waste SOoooo much gas.

2nd...some idiot will re-wire the thing, and have it work WHILE driving. I don't think i need to explain anymore of what problems that can cause.

Next...are they going to allow you to play other games? or will it like permanently have only 1 game in it???

What about in the summer when its really hot, and the 360 overheats and starts giving you errors? Will you be able to take it out yourself? Will you be forced to take it to a local nissan dealership to ge the console replaced?

will this run when the vehicle is off??? or does the engine have to be on? if the engine has to be on...thats dumb. that will just waste gas to play a game.

If the vehicle can be off...what about steering wheel lock? Which makes it harder to steal the vehicle because the tires won't turn.

same thing with the brakes. If allowed to work when off, will the brakes fill up with fluid, and not release untill the engine is turned on?

If it doesn't...again would make it easier to steal the vehicle.

there's just to many problems with this. Seems to be a waste of gasoline, and concidering gas prices...would get expensinve after a while too.

ontop of that, they will put a 300 dollar system in the car, and charge you an extra 1 grand.

pointless...

Obviously you have no underestimate the stupidity of people and how retarded people are, and will sit in their vehicle for hours playing a racing game like this and forget to turn the car back on to recharge the battery.

Find me information saying how microsoft and nissan has made it impossible to do so. Some person with enough smarts will try to get it to work while driving the vehichle.

And if they do, they will crash, and i HOPE they die and long, and painfull death.

Oh, and please leave a personal comment about the thread, instead of just focusing on one person's Post. so please, in the future, contribute to a thread.

Ending on that note.....

so...what do you think about this whole 360+Nissan deal?
