    it's hated because it's made by microsoft and also because people become fans of certain brands and hate anything that comes out thats better than it. im a nintendo fan, i've had everything from a snes to the 64 but im gonna be getting an X-box.

    I am a nintendo fan. (you may have noticed from previous threads/avatar). I do not hate the Xbox per say. What i dislike about it is its huge controller. God that thing is massive and while i am sure one can get used to it i still think it is a hunk of plastic made extra large so kids can't use it. Plus i am sick of handing Bill money. I can't argue that it is the most powerful system though. But then again some of the best games do not need huge processing power. Super Monkey Ball anyone?

    All I can say is that I dont like it because of:
    A- Its size. It looks too bulky for my liking
    B- Its controller size. Again, too big for my liking.

    Also its done by Mircosoft, and that seems to be everyones reason for hating or disliking it.
    Plus I also think the PS2 and GC has genrally, better all round games. Now before you Xbox Fans out there start flaming me and slaping me with copies of Halo and previews on its bigger brother Halo 2, know that I'm not saying its a bad console.
    Halo is a great game, however one which I prefer on the PC.

    I just bough xbox the other day and I love it. It got better graphics, you can play with Live, you have doom3 and half-life 2 coming for the system. counterstrike this month and maybe halo deluxe or Halo 2 which ever rumor end up being true. Porject Gotham 2, if you're looking for a racing game. The controllers (controller-S) is great if you just gives yourself more than 15 minuttes. I would highly recommend Xbox

    I think the Xbox is the best console i have ever played on, the graphics are excellent, that you are able to add your own cds to it (really great when you get bored with the music), no memory cards (again that great HDD) and the games great. And these days most of the really large releases are released on all consoles and PC, and that makes the choice even easier.

    One of the main reasons why people doesnt like the Xbox is that Microsoft owns Bungie and told them to make Halo Xbox only...

    And yes, i think the Xbox version of Halo is much than on PC

    You got to like Playstation!
    Its not so spectacular hardware speaking, but still manages well, with games like SSX3...
    I hate the xbox, its just no good, ugly, big, loud... and the games arent that impressive... The best thing about the playstation is that its has so many games. And this makes room for other games that would never manage to get published, like ICO for example... Very artistic, but people liked it...
    I also dislike the xbox since micro$oft makes it... personal reasons that i share with most of the computing world...

    But then again, the xbox can be modded, modded a lot! But you just end up doing the same thing as upgrading your PC...

    personally i dont think the X-box controller is too big, infact i think it is wonderful i picked it up and it actually fits perfectly with my hand unlike the controllers for nintendo and playstation consoles which seem to be made for gnomes. also it doesnt look big or loud it looks very sleek and modern and actually fits in well with the rest of an entertainment system well.

    i honestly dont mind giving my money over to microsoft. aslong as they keep producing the best stuff they'll keep getting my money.

    While I own an Xbox (for Halo and Mech Assault) I don't remember the timing involved... regardless, there are two sizes of controller for the Xbox. Originally it shipped with a quite large controller, since then it has come with one half that size.

    As to the quantity of games, keep in mind how many more years the PS2 has been available and that the original PS games also work on the PS2. Just keep that in perspective.

    I am not an avid console gamer and therefore don't feel as strongly as others of you appear to. My brother has both a PS2 and an Xbox and likes each for there relative merits and games available or each. That said, I wouldn't mind if Micro$oft were to drop off the planet tomorrow.

    As fun as it is to compare game consoles you have to remember that they don't all come out at the same time and therefore, one will always have the latest technologies and while the rest have yesterdays. They each take their turn at the head of the class.

    Also, it isn't always fair to compare certain games because it isn't always the power of the console being shown off, but the game programmer's ability to use and display that power. In other words, a crappy game doesn't help a console box.

    Enjoy,
    Jon
