I agree. Just because the XBox was more expensive than some other consoles on it's launch date is no good reason to declare it rubbish. The games are much better than anything the PS2 (or any other current console) can handle and they are still the same price. I think that the only reason people critisze the XBox is because it's new and they don't know what to think about it so they call it rubbish. This makes me so angry and will just see who's laughing when the XBox comes out on top!
the xbox cant fail, microsoft will just poor more and more money into it.
lets face it, people never like new things, especially new consoles. everything vintage is always said to be better. so then why do these same people buy the new consoles? hmm. come the next wave of consoles, everyone will slagging them off. its so frustrating. aaaaaaarhhhhhhhhhhhh

Fair enough. My PC is a sad and decrepid thing, so the XBOX allows me to look forward to playing the best forthcoming "PC" games on a console.

While your outlook on life does ring true in some places, unfortunately I do not share the view that I should fork out 200 quid for a console that will potentially be dead soon simply because I 'want' it.
