    Xbox 360

    Did anyone watch the special on MTV tonight revealing the second generation Xbox, Xbox 360?

    Here is a movie on it: http://msxb.wmod.llnwd.net/a274/o2/o...ny_v1_750k.wmv

    Here is the picture of it:
    http://img.engadget.com/common/image...4530774831.jpg

    and Engadget had quite a bit of info.... www.engadget.com

    I've officially started to save for it. It's going to be sweet.

    Sony will have a tough time competing because of all the things microsoft has set up... the media, xbox live (all xbox 360 games will be on xbox live) everything that microsoft does will make it amazing.

    It has 3 processors, and 512mb ram that's what they've said so far, who knows about graphics and how fast the processors run.


    What do you guys think?

    If it really amazes me, and i mean really does, i may consider one, only if the free xbox live rumor is true.

    I just read... it's supposed to be running at 3.2ghz... with chips owned by microsoft but designed by IBM and ATI... can't be that.

    Worst looking game console of all time.

    I think it looks good...

    I think that the first xbox is the uglest console of all time... but you don't look at the console, you look at the tv.

    I know a man who works at RedStorm Gaming who did all the Tom Clancy games, and (even though I don't know a thing about gaming), he still talked to me for about thirty minutes ago about how awesome the next xbox is going to be. He says they have had demo's of them, and that the possibilities are almost endless.
    Right now, each object is limited to like 1,000 polygons, whereas in the next one, the limit will be like 30,000.

    I'll get it when the price drops.
    I am very happy and satisfied with the current X-Box.

    It should, but there's a large population that buys for graphics before gameplay, so we will continue to see it.

    Personally I think the name, Xbox 360, is a bit week. They could have done better. I'll probably get it a month after it releases.

    Yea.. most people at gamer sites.. think this isn't a very good looking console. But wow.. check out those specs!

    I've played XBOX games before.. not to bad I must say. I'm more of a PS2 fan myself, I just like the game play and controllers better. But you gotta admit with the specs the XBOX 360 will have.. some nice games will be played on that. Maybe i'll think about buying it when its actually affordable heh

    They make money by selling games.
    When the the first X - Box came out it was costing Microsoft around $500 to produce a unit. They were selling it for $299, they were loosing money on just console sales. Its not untill that they are able to mass produce the console that their losses on console production are cut down. This is happens to all console makers. Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony

    looks impressive. gonna depend on the software support before i decide whether to get it. the ps3 specs look awesome (all that stuff about cell processors etc) so i think it'll come down to which has the best games...

    i bought a ps2 for gta vice city and have never bought any other games for it..

    That's unfair

    How are you going to get it anyway

    Very cool...now that I have a boy that is going to be old enough to play with one of these in a couple of years, I've got a good excuse to buy one.

    This is way better than the first Atari I played on in 1977. I remember how awesome the game Adventure seemed back then. Gaming is just so incredible these days. I prefer RTS on computers but you can't beat the experience of a console game sitting on your couch.

    microsoft is still losing money on xbox


    come on people, they haven't really shown anything yet, the MTV show was stupid (the only interesting thing was Rare's headquarters), and the video from ourcolony.net it's just "oh look at us, we made something cooooool dude, you can change the faceplates, customize!!", i thought they would make something more threaning against sony and nintendo, and if what they showed is all they got, it's such a let down.
    enjoy your flaming and hypocracy

    I love my current Xbox and there is no doubt I will get 360 as soon someone asks me to have this one. Only thing I wish is there is lighter controllers.

    I'm looking forward to the new Xbox. Sony will have a hard time matching it. I mean Sony might actually have to include built in storage this time, honestly I'm surprised the processor is included with the Playstation 2 and isn't an "optional" add-on.

    What do you guys think the price is going to be? I would guess $399 but maybe that's a bit steep.

    I'd put my money on it not playing original Xbox games. If it was capable of doing so, they would have said so.
