    On the Microsoft www.playmore.com website they have a UK Xbox advert for download (about 1.8 mb)

    It is very interesting.

    Anne.

    P'S You dont need to register to download it, just click on the funny alien eggs in the middle of the flash animation (after the intro)

    They had a review of the X-box on last night's Thumb Bandit's on C4. Games look good, but I can't get away with the size of the console and the controllers.

    Halo looked amazing :)

    I think anyone who buys an Xbox for £300 is going to kick themselves when the Gamecube comes out in May for £150 with better games, controller etc.

    No she doesn't. People have asked that question before.



    Anyway, Edge reviewed 2 XB games this month. One got 3/10 and the other got 1/10 !!:eek:


    I have a feeling XB will need some major titles soon or it just isn't gonna do the biz in the UK. (Gamecube at £150 is fighting talk by Nintendo).

    You learn to accept Anne's complete and utter obssession with all things XBox.

    God help the poor girl when the XBox does arrive and she no longer has anything to talk about...

    I do not work for Microsoft, I just like the Xbox console.

    Ok, so I have not played on a Xbox yet, but I am pretty good at spoting when something is a bad egg (like the Amiga CD32, I knew that would flop).

    I have watched the development and seen videos of the Xbox even when it was still a Silver X.

    Ono, what two games received these bad reviews?

    Anne has every right to be excited by the XBox. It is an exciting new machine. It is obviously destined to be a success, unlike the Amiga crap she describes.

    She's the resident XBox expert and certainly has all my respect. I know who I'd PM if I had an XBox question.

    The XBox will have its fair share of awesome titles as every console does, just you wait and see.

    Respect to Anne for sticking to her guns! You have a good time with your XBox!

    Thanks Ono, I usually read my brothers Edge mag but he has not got this months issue yet.

    Those games never interested me anyway :D

    I think the Xbox will be like Half Life, a top quality title but never being number 1 in the charts (HL never made it to number 1 in ELPSA charts, even though it wa the Game of the Year in 98).

    Also like HL when sales increased when CounterStrike version 1.0 was released, I believe the sales of the Xbox will rise when the online network is turned on.

    Anne
