    You can also play Halo online using http://www.xbconnect.com, an unofficial service. XBox Live is also highly entertaining. The hard drive is also great. No need to worry about memory cards ever again.

          Gamecube = 10x Pokemon games, but hey, if you're into that, more power to you.

          Bah..

          Thanks for the lecture dad. It was a joke (not even mine), but I guess fanboyism gets in the way of humor sheesh. I dont care about running linux on a console. There is no point to it, other than to brag about being l33t or something. Emulate ROMS? Not interested in that either. LIVE? I prefer playing online on the PC. And for the record I have played the XBox many times (neighbor owns it), along games like Halo. I didnt much like it, so there.

            No, GameCube = 3 Zelda games (technically), Super Smash Bros. Melee, Metroid Prime, and other great games.

              While the PS2 contains hundreds of other games that somebody over the age of 15 can enjoy.

                IMO, PS2's graphics are pretty inferior compared to the XBox and even the Gamecube...I've also never liked Sony because they're overpriced and they obsess over content protection (for example, their MP3 players are nearly worthless because of the formats they use and how you often have to rip your CDs first).

                  Well personally, I purchase stuff not because of what a company does with its other products, but instead, I take an objective look at the system and the related subjects. Buying a PS2 doesn't have much to do with how Sony makes their MP3 players.

                  The PS2 and Gamecube are about the same graphics-capability wise. There are quite a lot of games that don't use the full graphics capabilities, though.

                  However, the XBox has the best hardware systems of all the major gaming consoles.

                  Still doesn't hold up to my ATI Radeon 9800, though.

                    And people over 15 can enjoy SSBM, Metroid Prime, and Zelda. Sue me for pointing that out.

                      Personally, I own a Gamecube, PS2, PS1, Nintendo64, Super Nintendo, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance and a PC and get the same amount of enjoyment out of all of them.

                      Thinking about purchasing an XBOX in the next couple of weeks and it will be just another tool in the game playing arsenal. At that time, the only benefit it will give me is that I won't have to look at what platform a game is for when I go to purchase it. I can just pick a game off the shelf, buy it and know that I can play it when I get home.

                          I don't really understand why people that make fun of Nintendo games for being too kiddy don't just give the games a chance. You're missing out on a lot of great gameplay.

                          As for all of this "the Xbox is so mighty and powerful and graphically sophisticated" crap, I don't really care how many useless features the system has or how great the graphics are. The only thing that's important to me is good games and good gameplay.

                            I've actually played the Nintendo games. I've also played quite a bit of PS2 games.

                            I personally don't like the bright and happy games for the Gamecube. It gets horribly annoying after a while, when every single time, you're on a little 'quest' to rescue some princess or to save the world, you kill monsters by shooting little balls of energy at them, or "destroying" them with your puny sword.

                            Compare Zelda and Onimusha. Two games with roughly the same type of objective, except Onimusha is aimed towards older teens/adults. You don't live in a happy, bright, magical little world. You fight demons and other creatures, as opposed to little mushroom men, and the puzzles are much more challenging, with more complex elements to the gameplay.

                                And how is Hyrule a "bright happy world" when you're playing as Adult Link? Explain that one to me, I'd love to hear that....
