Check it and post your comments here!

I think the controller looks great (reminds me of the Sidewinder somehow) but the console itself looks like a huge machine, some kind of old VCR or something.

I'm still sceptic about the X-Box...

I guess Sega and Sony are going to lose this battle. The controller from the X-box looks nice. But it is microsoft.

Sega and Sony are indeed going to loose. he Dreamcast wasn't good distrubuted, the PS2 is too hard to program for. Nintendo will survive thanx to the Gameboy advanced and the GameCube.

The X-box looks good and all but has one big weakniss: No exclusive games.

Nintendo will survive because of their pocket consoles.

Sega... I'm not really sure about them. They might actually hold on with their DreamCast.

Sony will survive as well, because they've made a great name with their PlayStation, and I think the PS2 will also sell good.

And about Microsoft... I think it's going to work. The specs of the Xbox are so much better than any other console, so I really think they will do some serious business with it.

hehe....
The XBox has the best specs so far, and it's easy to program stuff on since it runs on Windows CE with DirectX. So I think it will work out pretty good for M$. I just hope they don't force people to much.

Yeah, and there's a big chance that they now won't enhance the DirectX for the pc anymore, so it's more attractive to buy a Xbox.

Simon -> cool picture! You guys also have seen those fake X-box pictures? One guy photoshopped a Sony gettoblaster so it looked like a Xbox. Pretty funny to see

Yeah, the PC will always be the best (I hope...).
Just get a nice computer with good CPU and nice videocard and it'll work great! "But it's too hard to install a game!" %)

The TV-gaming is Sega and Nintendo's stuff, why should that f***ing Gates come in and put his capitalistic fingers in the game?? Then Sony, they built TVs not consoles? The consolegames are just not Sony and Microsoft's business..
Then I'm sure that Microsoft will win the war.. They always does.. Nintendo has got problems now, they won't release their console until spring 2002 now..
