    how about free from verizon and news file grabber and the search engine of bin search

    all free and just or if not almost just not as good as what you have to pay for.

    Newsdemon is th ebest i have used so far. starts out unlimited for 17.95 US and then after you cancel they send you an email to start back for 14.95 unlimited. So 14.95 unlimited is not that bad.

    Giganews is no question the best, but they are the most expensive too. I think it's worth the extra cost. No one else has 200 day retention along with the highest completion rate out there. You can probably find a lot of other adequate options in the $14.99 a month range. Usenetserver was ok for me a while back when I had them.

    I wanted to ask about this. If you download a game from these web sites what does the game file have. Does it look like a folder or Rar(stack of books)? Also when you download a game from them what size do they usually come in, because I see that they all have a gig size for each month or unlimited. And does anyone know how fast they get the newest games. Not sure if its the same day they come out or a couple of days after. Plaes let me know. One more thing what program do you use to burn these files with. I have nero7, but if theres a different program I like to use that one.
    ***Sorry so many questions, but getting my XBOX 360 modded today and need to get on the ball so I have something to play***

    IMG Burn works good to burn. games range in size from 5 to 7 gigs, somewhere around there. Can't help you with the newsgroups, not really my scene. Most will be in rar formate and need to be extracted using winrar or a comparable program. You can usually get games anywere from a week or so before it comes out to a week after it comes out. Usually the more popular the sooner you can get it.

    What do you use. I see that gignews had a free 10gig to start with so I was going to try that or just start w/a small package to try it out. I dont want to search isohunt or any other site, because they take to long sometimes. Do you know have tutorial on the burn process, maybe some screen shots would help out alot if possable, but anything will help since Im starting from scratch.

    Do the games come patched already or do I have to do that too.

    Almost all respectable release groups make sure their releases are patched, I haven't had any that aren't in quite a long while.

    I think it's pretty easy to use,It downloads the file's for ya extracts it into its own folder then will delete all the rar's if it's correct.There was no special setting up to do.

    Yeah I think Grabit is pretty simple too, even if I'm an "advance" user when it comes to these kind of things. Open a nbz file and it does all the work for you.

    ive been using grabit since i started with newsgroups and its simply the best, all you need to learn is quickpar and general basics when dealing with repairing files. it does all the work for you! ;D
