Hm, well I got Metal Gear Solid 2 and beat it two days ago. It´s awesome and blows every other game out of the water. <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> For those of you that actually plan on playing it, I won´t say anything about it so as not to spoil it for you. ----------------------- Bhurak Starkiller &quot;Who are you that flies so good?

Until I started seeing the games that would be available for it, the X-Box held no interest to me, but now that it´s out and I´ve started seeing some of the stuff that´s available on it, I´m drooling. I really want one! The only thing that will suck is playing an FPS with a game pad. ICK! Give me a keyboard and mouse over a gamepad any day (for FPSs anyways, I prefer to race cars with a gamepad). That´s the main reason that Golden Eye drove me nuts! <img src=´http://www.mmogzone.com/images/ministerphobia.jpg ´> One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.

How many cool Xbox games will there be in the future? So few in the beginning, (what, Halo and DoA3, and maybe a couple others) probably a few in the future.

If you´re not a console gamer, you´re not a console gamer, and few console games will likely interest you. Lately I´ve been more of a console gamer. And as a console gamer, I can say that the PS2 has few games of interest (I´ve bought and returned many), and I see few games of interest on the horizon. Of games that have been confirmed for XBox and PS2, I´m more interested in the games to be released for the XBox. It certainly has the greatest potential for enhancing gameplay with its hard drive and built in networking, assets the PS2 and GC will have to do without. I think that if the PS2 were to dominate the market, it would only stifle game development. Far too many games released and yet to be released are simply rehashes of Playstation 1 games, with better graphics. The Playstation 1 became a giant off of the success of certain types of games, and those games will continually be emulated for the PS2. Like the Dreamcast before it (in the sense that it is the underdog), the XBox can only gain ground by offering significantly different gaming experiences, which to me means a greater commitment to creativity on the part of the XBox developers (games released at launch, however, must cover old ground to ensure that the tried and true genres aren´t lost in the console switch). Unlike the Dreamcast, however, marketing for the XBox will probably be a lot more successful. The Dreamcast, unfortunately, found itself released in a lull period between generational leaps, a bad move on Sega´s part. The prospect of the PS2 on the horizon made spending money on the Dreamcast seem a risky decision, even IF the games were fantastic. That, and the collective belief that the Dreamcast would ultimately succumb to the PS2 became in itself a cause for the Dreamcast´s demise...although it likely only sped up the inevitable by a couple of years. While the PS2 has steadily been growing a larger and larger installed base, it still does not match the installed base of the PS1, so there is still a great deal of time and opportunity before the console market becomes saturated, which means the XBox still has a good shot at success, whether it shares that success with the PS2 or not. Nintendo systems certainly don´t seem to suffer from a rehashing problem, at least not as much as the PS2 currently is. Personally I don´t think it constitutes a great threat to either Sony or Microsoft because the demographic for Nintendo has largely been the same throughout its history, and I don´t see that changing significantly with the Gamecube. Nintendo got exclusive rights to Resident Evil, but honestly, how many Resident Evils do people want to play? On the other hand, Capcom managed to start a brand new franchise with Devil May Cry, whose sales, I think, will capture more wind than any RE sequel. BTW, ElectricBrain, reports from the internet indicate that your experience with trying to buy a Gamecube and finding only XBoxes for sale are matched by people trying to buy an XBox and finding only Gamecubes.... We´ll have to wait for the numbers until we can make any judgement about the initial success of the consoles...which will ultimately be irrelevant in the long run (in its time, the Dreamcast had the most successful launch of any console in history). All signs so far seem to indicate that both consoles will do very well this year, however, which seems to eliminate the possibility that either will die a quick death (certainly not a possibility for the Gamecube).

PS2 forever, XBOX hahah I anit trusting ms to make a game let alone console. (Starlancer aint made by ms). BTW MGS suked badly and I wont play number 2. GTA3 no there is a game worthy of PS2. I mean going around with a baseball bat and guns in a big city oh yeah. It was probably banned in the US because of S:11. And the volience from what I heard is just unreal. We all played GTA 1+2 but this is 3D and in Thrid person prespective, drive by´s, rocket lanucher attacks and something that will offend people. Killing prosteutes and old grannies. Also more conterversial is Airport and I´ll leave it at that. ----------------------------------------- &#201;ire is my home and I shall fight for her. No matter who I must fight.

MD, ur such a n00b. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Xbox´s cpu is basically a cross between the Celeron and the P3. GC´s Gecko is a optimized PowerPC processor. Each MHz of the Gecko is like 2 MHz of the P3. Tests have proven it. Dont fall into the MHz marketing scam. Just like how a 1.53GHz AthlonXP is more powerful than a 1.9GHz P4. <img src=´http://www.lancersreactor.org/images/news/barkeeper.gif ´>- A Message From Your Friendly Neighbourhood ElectricBrain

That isn´t some &quot;PC is better than consoles&quot; argument, is it? I for one think consoles are holding up their end quite nicely when it comes to graphics. PC games always lag when it comes to utilizing the most powerful component out there. True, consoles eventually end up lagging behind PC, but staying state of the art is a helluva lot more expensive with the PC. 4-5 years between console launches basically mean at least 2 or 3 computer upgrades. ----------------------- Bhurak Starkiller &quot;Who are you that flies so good?

pirate, go read up on some unbiased reviews of the consoles. The Gecko IS DEFINITELY more powerful than the XBox´s cpu. Also, do u seriously believe a console like that can do 120 million polys? THINK! OF COURSE NOT!!!!!! That is 120 million raw poly performance polygons. No textures, shading or whatever. Just the polygons. Nintendo didnt release BS numbers like those cuz they mean nothing. Realistically, XBox and GC are pretty much even. <img src=´http://www.lancersreactor.org/images/news/barkeeper.gif ´>- A Message From Your Friendly Neighbourhood ElectricBrain

Er, 120 million polys, shaded and textured or not, is still 120 million polys. Just like a pound of feathers weighs as much as a pound of lead. <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Regardless, the GPU is more important in this case than the CPU, and I think the XBox has the advantage. Don´t forget the XBox has a hard drive and built in Ethernet. Raw power does not a system make, and I think those two features will play nicely into XBox´s hands. ----------------------- Bhurak Starkiller &quot;Who are you that flies so good?
