WELL, AS ITS NEW THOUGHT I WOULD GO AND BUY ONE, AFTER SPENDING £420 ON AN XBOX AND TWO GAMES/CONTROLLER I CAN REPORT THAT ITS GRAPHICS ARE AWSOME.

THEY ONLY RELEASED THEM AT MIDNIGHT LAST NIGHT AND I GOT MINE IN TESCO'S, NOT QUITE A MAD RUSH FOR THEM BUT IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS THINKING ABOUT IT, ITS DEFO WORTH IT ALTHOUGH THE PS2 IS SO HARD TO BEAT I THINK THAT ANY NEW GAMES THINGY IS NOT GOING TO RIVAL PS2 EVEN IF IT GIVES FREE BLOW JOBS WHILST YOU ARE PLAYING.

IF ANYONE HAS A SPARE 400 QUID TO SPEND ITS WORTH IT UNLIKE THE NINTENDO 64 PILE OF SHITE WHICH IS GATHERING DUST ALONG WITH MY BETAMAX VIDEO REDORDER.

IT ALSO PLAYS DVD'S - PORN DVD'S! HEHEHEHEHE.

Do the porn DVDs come in the package?:D ;)

I have tried the XBOX at a few demo stands in various shops over here....and almost half the time the thing was either busted or frozen.
I think I will be sticking to my PS2 for the moment....I only play GT anyways...:smokin:

X-Box

Saw a demo in a shop the other day and it looked OK ,however I think the graphics were not as good as the PC'c though .

I was thinking of getting one but won't bother now.I'll stick to my PC !
If only it wouldn't crash..............:(

Well the architecture of the x-box is just a PC, but in a box, so you will probably find that most of the good games will make it to PC anyway (why spend money designing a game that will work on PC and x-box and only release it on th x-box....)

Good point

Even though it is based on a PC it still doesn't seem to have anywhere near the grapics power of a modern PC with a say GeForce 3 Ti does it ?

Hmmmmmmm

I looked at this beastie but when you strip it down its a basic low-spec PC. It will be more attractive when it follows the PS2 and drops its price. Then perhaps the missus will let me have one of these as well as my PS2.

Oooooooo Yeahhhhhh

If I bought the X-Box I would be needing the Channel X on Sky because I would be divorced. When it comes down in price and she is in her new house perhaps, but at the moment ooooo noooo.

The car is going down well unfortunately, it is painfull showing her to people but thats life. A couple of serious punters but no cash in the bank yet.

If you get one mate drop me a note and I'll pop round and thrash you at game of your choice.

All the best

it is actually quite good, i replied in a hurry earlier, had to go out, the controls are a bit daunting a bit like the Nin 64 but the two games I bought, a car one and cop shooting one were really good graphics wise.

I will probably sell it in a weeks time as I get bored easily, I only bought it as an impulse buy at Tesco's, I only went in there for a coffee in the cafe shop and came out £ 420 lighter.

Yeah Halos cool, you can play it in Virgin, they have a test stand. Unfortunately the one were all interested in-Gotham Racing isnt as good as GT3 :(

Anyway, dont support bill gates, hes got anough money and I for one would love to see this fail big time!!!

Nick-sounds like a tough weekend :D

The graphics card inside the Xbox has been produced by Nivda exclusively for Microsoft. It has 'supposedly' the same amount of power as a GeForce 3...
Anyway now that programmers have become used to the PS2 coding new games will look a lot better! Just take GTA3 and MGS2 for example :D

GeForce 4 has now been released...Soon enough the GeForce 5 will arrive. A never-ending circle of updating :(
