Microsoft had a launch party for their new console on Friday; I managed to score some time with the device via press accomodations.

Pretty impressive system. Project Gotham Racing should appeal to most everyhone on this board.

I favored Dead or Alive 3 out of the games I demoed :)

I like the controllers. More of a Dreamcast feel which I like. DoA3 is the BEST game I've seen on it so far cause Halo gave me a headache :( I hate first person shoot em ups.

I'm glad yours worked. 7 of the 10 X-Box demos in the area do not function. They just freeze up for no reason and the toy store people have not gotten any help from Microsoft. Sound familiar? I swear I am NOT making this up.

XBox demo boxes had problems for one of two reasons : inadequate cooling (which isn't good because the "demo" boxes are actual production boxes) and bad game code. Most of the Halo CDs were shipped with unstable versions of the game (video driver conflicts). Microsoft denies both problems, Bungie (maker of Halo) specifically cites Microsoft as shipping the wrong version of Halo for demo use that's causing their game to lock up.

Halo was never meant for the XBox, it was meant for a real gaming machine (the one you're sitting at right now). No first person shooter has ever not sucked for a gaming console minus GoldenEye for the N64 because you used all of two buttons. Halo was dumbed down significantly in terms of gameplay in order to make it playable ... which inherently made the game suck. I think they'll have to release Halo for the PC just to make up for the complete suckage that it will be on the XBox.

Get a PS2, play Gran Tourismo 3's Rally Racing until your fingers fall off. I'd consider a GameCube, but I don't want to play Pokemon...

I have a PS2 and I just got GTAIII. That game kicks so much ass! Get a PS2. I'll get XBox when some more games come out.
