    Does anyone else here think the XBOX sucks, what with its oversized hippo like control pad and huge server sized console unit. It was soo funny watching microsoft losing profits in order to attempt to make the silly console succeed. Price cut after price cut, sooo lame. :laugh:
    Ok no need for a memory card, but you still gotta pay for the adaptor to use the DVD player, Bill Gates should have been shot for allowing it!! :nono:

    size = all the hard ware thats in it.
    controller = a pretty well made pad, and comfortable in the hand, may take some time to get on with it as im sure most console pads are to begin with.
    price reduction = a great move by a company that could have easily let it stay the same price, i for one would not have bought an xbox if it was still £300. i got mine when they were £130.
    dvd adapter = its a games console 1st and will also play dvd's if you want it to, by leaving out the hardware that the dvd player needs may make the console cheaper to buy. but im sure if you wanted to use it as a dvd player then the £20 for the adapter is reasonable.

    I think it's great. I also think it looks a bit crap. But I don't care - I'm having hours of fun with it. I actually like the controller. It is a bit chubby but its very comfortable.

    Does it suck? In a word, no. Plenty of decent games for it, good performance, and who cares if it's slightly bigger than the other consoles? It's not as if it won't fit into your house. I think the controller (the smaller 'S' version) is fine. Well made and works well. Makes the controllers for the Gamecube and PS2 seem cheap and averagely made in comparison.

    Sorry Harty, didn't mean yours, i meant the original post. A completly pointless post that will do nothing but to provoke an argument and should be deleted.

    Actually if you were worth your salt and you knew what you were talking about, which quite clearly you do not then you would be aware that Sony actually own the rights to implement DVD playback as standard, the only way MS could get around if was via making an addition add-on.

    Also you say its huge, well yes is it bigger. But if you had ever taken the lid off of one then you would see what there is absolutely no room in there because of all the components.

    I dont own a PS2 i own a GC, But XBOX is poor by all standards. GC graphics aint far off in quality from XBOX and its much smaller and convinient and prettier :)

    I didnt come to start arguments but merely to state opinions and facts.

    The whole DVD thing is a load of garbage cos in Japa you can get the Q-Cube with built in DVD player
