it sucks, I walked in and thought wayhey an xbox, lets see the greatest graphics ever seen on a console and some decent games yet "amped" one of it's great games look on par with SSX:Tricky but just a bit better anti analysed and talking of which I expected it to be all as sharp as can be but I still noticed some flickering on the edges, or is it me after seeing games like Shadow of Memories, RRV etc that I have an eye for it, I dunno either way it's not very good. I know it's early days but still, I say stick with your PS2 or gamecube, oh and I bought an N64 and a copy of Mario on the way out,hehe :-D

you get used to it :-)

I found the controls in red faction a little slow but luckily there was sensitivity options, works though, most PS2 FPS use both analog sticks and I think gamecube and Xbox games will follow.

I found Red Faction a complete Nightmare to control. I dont like the idea at all. N64 pad worked much better for me, especially with the trigger button at the back.

I disagree, The N64 pad is awkwardly designed and too spread out and as for First person shooters nothing can match up to the PS2 pad using both analog sticks and all shoulder buttons :-P

I agree, the Xbox is actually the same size as my HUGE dell computer! AND it weighs a ton!

It's definately worse than the PS2's.

The N64's controller is brilliant to hold! It's comfortable, buttons easy to reach, and the best controller ever for FPS games.

Well, had you not had any preconseptions about Sony, I think any gamer would have though the PS2 was doomed to fail by the same logic- bad Anti Aliasing (or lack of it), unoriginal games on the whole, and many games had graphics not much better than PSX and certainly no better than DC on the whole.

However, there were some gems, like SSX. Just as the Xbox has some gems like DOA3, Halo and Project Gotham. Suffice it to say that both consoles have a bright future.
