Anyone getting the X-Box?
« on: December 14, 2000, 01:39:10 PM »
Is anyone actually thinking about getting an X-Box?

I am, and although I love my PS2, I think the X-Box will be quite good, because all you ever hear about the X-Box is praise from Game Developers - If anyone has any bad points about the X-Box (apart from \'Its made by Microsoft\'), please write in here.

Well, Xbox will be a dumping ground of PS2 and PC ports, and a few exclusives from companies that MS bought. I have no need to get an Xbox. Halo will come out on PC, and munch probably will 2. Silent hill 2 and MGSX (whatever that is) is on PS2 and will be on Xbox in the months to follow. So bottom line is, I\'m not going to run out and buy a console just because the games I already  have are "shinier" I HAVE A PS2 AND A PC, XBOX IS A WASTE OF MONEY. Now Gamecube on the other hand, thats innovative.

There seems to be alot going for it, but I think it\'s still too early, for me at least, to positively say that I will own one. Many things can happen this next year, and something will knock me to one side of the fence or the other.

Probably. It has the makings of a good system. But I\'ll probably hold off until the first few "MUST GET" games come out for "X-Box Only."

Nah, I don\'t think so. The only way I would get one is if a really good game that I really wanted came out EXCLUSIVELY for the X-Box.

I agree totally. Not to mention most confusing. Only two days ago he was going on about how the Xbox would dominate and how he must have one. Now, its back to MS sucks and the Xbox is a PC. Course, he done the same thing with the PS2.

Anyways,
Yea, I\'m getting one.

Well...i got only 3 question:
1. Do u wanna help microsoft monopolised console market?
2. Is there gonna be extremely a lot of exclusive games can only be played on x-box?
3. Can x-box games can be intregrated to PC, (eg, like Bleemer for PS1), if it can and it probably will, looking from possible x-box specs....well, why do u  buy x-box anyway?
i don\'t wanna be a pie... :(

1- They won\'t monopolise the market under any circumstance except all three other console companies quitting.

2-Yes.

3-Bleemer? Integrated to PC? What the hell are you talking about?

I am gonna hold off and wait awhile. I\'m big on sport games and EA does it for me. So I really don\'t see myself geting another console just cause its alittle cleaner or sharper.
