    OS in the background or not... I will be happy to put my system up against an X-Box machine. Gimme a game that has been ported over and we'll see. :cool:

    Darth ya'd kill'm @ idea. Tell ya what I'd like to see is what the w2k version on a dual boot, and a crack'd copy of a couple of the games on my big screen tv via my computer, just to prove a point to my stepson. I'm just finish'n him a new rig based on my old 850 Duron & a g/f 3. It's just BG's X-computer-X rip off, so he can make a point at our expense, again.

    What! They were saying a PIII 733 was suppose to be inside the X-Box. Although I did hear a tiny rumor that they downgraded before release here in the U.S.

    I dont know what difference the celeron would make instead of the PIII...anyone willing to enlighten me?

    I've played a lil of the ps2..its ok i guess. I havent had the chance for the GameCube. I got to hold the X-Box controller at K-Mart but the console wasnt on for a try-out. Controller felt nice,I expected a big bulky one. The clerk up there said he has seen the X-Box freeze on a bunch of ppl....dont know what game. Halo looks nice on the commercials and tv.

    The L2 indicates a mobile celly. Not a P3. In fact alot of the hardware is older. It part of what showes this to be......rip off.

    I still think PS2 is more impressive. The Grand Tourismo games especially. But then, I might have a bias against Microsoft.

    The Xbox is a mean little machine.. sure, it's only got a p3 and a gf2.. but this thing is built for games........ not applications, not heaps of programs that run at once.. games... They are damn good at what they do.. I'm not gonna get one myself, but I believe that they still are a nice little machine..

    Problem is, games for consoles are are good as they can be.. Games for PC are always, ALWAYS dumbed down a little bit so there is more of a market for them... which is sad in a way for all those people with big beasty PC's.... a good example of this is Halo. Most gamers out there have heard about this. With the release of the Xbox in Japan / US, Halo was THE game to have.. It looks and plays unbelievably well on the system, and is slated for a PC release sometime next year.. Unfortunately, they are cutting out a lot of cool features from the Xbox version so a larger audience of PC users can play it.

    Sorry for the mini rant here.. i could go on, but I won't.. all i'm saying is don't put consoles down because of their specs. It's like comparing athlons to pentium 4s only based on clock speeds... :) (that'll start a nice little argument... hehehe)
