1. Who wants to bet on how long we will have to wait untill we see a blue screen of death or the horrible illegal error . I guess we'll just have to wait and see...

2. Argh! Microsoft you can't stuff up consoles as well! It's simply not fair! You people really begin to annoy me!

Take for example Win98 SE and it's faulty registry cycle (that I'm now caught in);

Code:
Machine Boots;

var = rand(0-300)

if var > 0 then...
end if

restore previous backup files (last load)
boot windows
restart machine. *sigh* :(
Or take for example how when you re-install Windows98 it deletes you Pegasus mail program! What competition? What monopoly?

Now imagine that on a console! That's why I'm keeping clear of xBox!

3. The Xbox is HUGE compared to the Dreamcast or even the Gamecube. The controller is butt ugly with the huge logo in the middle (although I guess some people are stupid and would have to stare at the controller to remember what they are playing, what with all these different consoles and all).

And it's also a proven fact that black gaming consoles are doomed to failure (genesis, segacd, jaguar, etc. etc.) and ones that are grey do great (snes, psx, nes). Me personally, I already own a Sega Dreamcast and plan on getting a Nintendo Gamecube... PS2 and Xbox can sucker in all the hype they want but Sega and Nintendo were the original war lords

4. Nice "jewel" it's got... big, ugly, unimportant, and completely useless and unecessary

It'll take me a week to figure out where each button is located and what it's for. The pad looks HUGE!

Microsoft sure dosen't have a lot of confidence in its Xbox... it keeps stating everywhere you look at it that it's an Xbox, as if one who actually bought the thing wouldn't have known what mistake he's just made!

Best system? I wouldn't go that far. Micro$oft is the newbie here, so it might turn out to be a ----ty syetem. Especially since they don't have a good bond with developers yet. 8. X-Box will be the best all-time console seller. It won't have the best opening since alot of people don't think it's that great, but over time it will prevail. It has the best hardware and every software developer. There is no possible way for it to fail. 9. Originally posted by syanet There is no possible way for it to fail. Hmm, other successful machines that said that: Sega 32x Sega CD 3D0 NEO GEO Jaguar Sega Saturn Game.com Virtual Boy [added] R-Zone [added] /sarcasm 10. Ya'll need to remember that Microsoft is the largest company (in revenue) in the whole world. They have more money then any other company. So whatever product a company comes out with, Microsoft can come out with too and better. Bill Gates's favorite line is "Whatever you can do I can do better". And you eventually see what Microsoft can do is way better. Ya'll keep wondering why Microsoft doesn't use Linux or sell their own version of Linux? When they do, it's gonna be big. Microsoft just doesn't take the time to perfect their products, if they did, it would blow our minds. Microsoft is just taking it's time. Microsoft already developes products but doesn't release them. When Windows 95 was released, Microsoft was working on 98. Microsoft is ALWAYS one step ahead of the game and that's why they are so big.. and that's why they are so rich.. and that's why everyone hate them. Because what they can do, would blow your mind.. and that's why the United States decided to break them apart. A monopoly? Nope. Why should Microsoft put Netscape in Windows for free? You don't see Mazda complaining that Lexas doesn't put Mazda radios in their cars... if you want your product in someone elses product, you gotta pay. 11. not for nothin nick, those consoles u listed weren't 4 times the competetors 12. Originally posted by razor not for nothin nick, those consoles u listed weren't 4 times the competetors At the time, they were supposed to be "the best there is". I'm betting M$ ends up that way to.

13. I knew someone would quote that, but you can mention all the other machines you want, but the X-Box is in a unique position. There releasing with virtually no competition. They have the best hardware ever put into a console. And when was the last time a console could boast that they have virtually every developer making games for their system? Not to mention Microsoft can afford to lose money on the console itself, because they'll more than gain it back in game sales. This will drive up sales making the X-Box the best selling console ever.

14. OMG! I can't believe how dumb Microsoft is! Look at the control pad! The joystick (which everyone is supposed to use most) is on the same side as the buttons! Therefore, if you are using your right hand (you have to) to control the joystick, you can't move and press buttons at the same time. (Unless you assume a very awkward position of using 2 hands on one side of the pad.) Therefore, you can't run and shoot at the same time, you have to run - stop - shoot - run - stop - shoot - turn around - stop - shoot (You get the point.) If MS doesn't change this, they are so screwed.
