I don't understand why some people think the xbox is the end all, be all of gaming. It's kind of funny actually.. it's not like the games I've been playing for the past couple of months suddenly became crap because a new console came out. I'm still having just as much fun as I always have. But, I guess I just don't get it...

Kind of depends on what you want. I like both the PC and consoles but only own an Xbox currently. It's modded so I have emulators on it too. I like playing those old games on a regular TV rather than a monitor.

No doubt. DQ8 is occupying the majority of time, net-gen consoles or not.

Where did you read it was the be all end all of gaming?

To me, it's just a kickass system with some kickass games and the first console to do HD well. It doesn't have to be "better" or "worse" compared to PC. It isn't a freaking football game.

"PC only" snobs are exactly how you describe. A game like FEAR comes out and all you hear is how every other game "sucks" if it doesn't look as good as FEAR.

Actually I need to update my sig, I'm gaming with a 7800GT and an X800XL, I just joined nVnews for Linux driver discussions originally. It just turns out there are some other decent discussions here, although I do need to go over to Rage3D and put some more sand in SSXs vag one of these days, great sig.

I certainly haven't bought into the hype, guess it doesn't mean anything because we don't get the system until march 06 anyway. By then I'm sure I'll have a well formed opinion of the system.

I didn't buy into the hype because quite frankly, xbox sucks. I'm a proud Nintendo fan boy and have no interest in anything else console-wise. I'm mainly a "pc snob". =D

Is there a lot of hype? This seems to be the most uneventful console launch ever.

I bought into the hype on the first Xbox, it's going to take an impressive line up free of Brute Force or Halo 1.5 to make me consider the 360

My only gripe about the 360 is the attempt to unify the control system. There is NO WAY I want to be stuck with using a stupid console controller when playing PC games that should have been designed with a mouse/keyboard interface. I am afraid that the next move will be 360-PC ports that work with the controller only. That way publishers can save as much money as possible in supporting both platforms. (PC gamers bend over!)
