ok, why dont microsoft just come out and say it, "what we really want the x box2 to be is, errrrrrrr basically a gamecube mrk2"


first of all they get nvidia to handle the graphics side of things (hmm now you'll remmber they currently produce the graphics engine for the gamecube)

secondly - they now go and get IBM to produce the CPU - (hmmm much like they currently do by way of the "flipper" CPU in the cube!0


now i realise they are probably impressed with the power the cube has in such a small space compared to their monstrosity of a brick, they probably realise that even though the xbox is apparantly super powerful, you cant actually tell the difference between the cube and xbox versions of most games, and if anything the graphics are brighter and not as washed out on the cube

so..........

why dont they just admit to basically wanting to recreate the cube as xbox ??

Somehow I doubt it, although indications are that it won't be called the XBoX2 either.

I vote for 'Bill's Boom Box'

OK, you got me. It was late(for me - I do very early shifts) and I wasn't on the ball so to speak. But I wasn't completely wrong, the Gamecube graphics were still done by ATI and not Nvidia.

Oh, and what's with the half-assed insults. No need whatsoever. I merely pointed out you were wrong (when in some cases you weren't), I never insulted you.

Why don't you grow up and realise everyone makes mistakes - even you.

He's talking about Microsoft's next console. They have chosen IBM to design the CPU for the X-Box 2. It was also revealed months ago that ATI will be developing the new graphics chip.

ATI handled the Gamecubes graphics. So you're wrong.

The Xbox CPU is from Intel, not IBM, so wrong again.
