Product Description

Amazon.com

Take the power and flexibility of a dedicated computer gaming system and combine it with the easy-to-use, instant-on format of a high-end console system and what do you get? Well, if you also add in DVD playback ability and broadband Internet connectivity, you get Xbox.

The advanced components inside Xbox make it the undisputed powerhouse among current game consoles. A 733 MHz Intel main processor and 233 MHz graphics processor from industry leader nVidia deliver photorealistic graphics in real time. A cavernous hard drive stores saved games and characters, making flimsy memory sticks obsolete. The built-in Ethernet port enables super-fast multiplayer online gaming over a broadband Internet connection. Four game controller ports allow you and three of your buddies to play at the same time, or you can use them for other peripherals such as gamepads, light guns, and who knows what else?

But Xbox has more going for it than fancy innards. The Xbox's Windows-based operating system is a breeze to program on, earning it grateful accolades from Electronic Arts, Infogrames, THQ, and other game producers. The less time developers spend struggling with the operating system means the more time they spend tweaking gameplay, which ultimately results in better games. And games are what it's all about.

Well, games and the fun of owning a green-glowing game console that looks like it came from Darth Vader's living room.--Mike Fehlauer

The Xbox Video Game System with Controller S includes the Xbox console, the popular "S" style Microsoft controller, and all necessary cables. A DVD kit (sold separately) is required to access DVD playback ability.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Overall Console! December 24, 2004
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me just start off by saying that I own all three popular consoles (gamecube, ps2, and xbox), so I know what I am talking about. Every console has its plusses and minus's. Even Xbox. I am very tired of reading online reviews about consoles where they say "xbox rocks" or "ps2 is the best" or "gamecube is the king of consoles". Its very immature and you would be suprised how many people depend on reviews like that to choose which console they want for christmas, or their birthday. So let me tell you that this is not a console bashing at all. I am just going to state all the plusses and minus's of each console, and let people decide on which one to choose.

Gamecube pros:

1.Has some of the best multiplayer games around (mario power tennis, mario party 6, super smash brothers melee, etc.)

2.Has four controller ports

3.Has decent graphics and sound

4.the lightest out of all 3 consoles

5.Has some great rpg's

Gamecube cons:

1.Controller layout isn't so great (for example, I don't like how the "C" button controls from the n64 have been changed into a analog stick)

2.1st and 3rd person shooters suck ass

3.Not a very good library of games

4.No online gaming

ps2 pros (only the first and second generation ps2's, not the new design, I think those things are a pieces of sh*t):

1.Not the lightest of the three, but way lighter that the xbox (I would know, I weighed them. I know, I have way too much time on my hands)

2.Has the largest selection of games out of all three

3.Has the best 1st and 3rd person titles out of all three (grand theft auto series, metal gear solid series, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me give you my own, unbiased opinion. May 30, 2004
By A Customer
I am a hardcore gamer. I have owned PS2 and Gamecube and Xbox (I sold my PS2 - not getting any use.) All systems have they're stengths. Anyone who denies that is NOT a good reviewer and just makes things up based on they're personal bias. So why IS Xbox, in my opinon, the best choice for a video game console?
Firstly, the graphics. I know you've heard this one before, but they truely are superb. The xbox is technically superior to both the other systems, no one can deny that. (Xbox has a 733 Mhz CPU, PS2 is 200 Mhz). Obviously, graphics do NOT make a great games, but they are something to be noted.
Secondly, the games. Believe it or not, Xbox has good games besides Halo. In action games, there are Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six 3, amd Ghost Recon, MGS:2, Mech Assault, Ninja Gaiden, Prince of Persia, etc. Good sports games too, including EA sports series, XSN sports series, and ESPN sports series. Racing games are excellent, with Project Gotham Racing 2 and Rallisport Challange 2. There are RPG's like Bauldors gate and Morrowind.
So the games are good, but is there anything else?
Yes. Online gaming. Microsoft made a system that I truely believe is superior to even online gaming on the PC. The gaming is on one serivice. This has more benifits than you may think. Say your plaing Ninja Gaiden, but your friend wants youto join his Splinter Cell game. No problem, he just sends you a message telling you to join his game. Microsoft's online gaming (Xbox Live!) also includes tournaments, rankings, lists of your friends, and of course, voice communication.
But why choose Xbox over the other systems? The gamecube is for people who want high quality single player games that are not online. If you are a solitary gamer, go for gamecube.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best system I've owned October 18, 2004
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For those of you considering a PS2 or a Gamecube, allow me to throw out my two cents. A short while ago, disappointed with my Gamecube, I decided to invest in an XBox, and since then I've bought NBA Live 2005, Madden NFL 2005, MVP Baseball 2004, Splinter Cell, and Hitman:2.

Having played the PS2 extensively I decided that XBox was the way to go because of the superior, in my opinion, graphics as well as the fact that you can upload your own music into the system and you also eliminate the need for memory cards, which became a huge expense as I played more and more sports games. Without the need for memory cards, it also allows me to save things like replays, Bios, save games on rentals (previously unheard of), among other perks.

At the price, it's a tremendous value, because if you never buy another system, this one will certainly suit your needs until the unfortunate day that you meet your demise. When that day comes you may very well wish you hadn't spent so much time on video game systems, but what are you going to do, really? You're dying!

In summation, buy this system. I've been very happy with the game quality and every other aspect of the system. My DVD Player broke and having the XBox on hand has saved me from having to go out and buy another one, which is also big.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Console, Just Not Portable October 19, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I own a GameCube, a PlayStation2, and an XBox. I bought my XBox to play Knights of the Old Republic, which was one of the first XBox exclusives that really caught my eye.

The XBox has amazing graphics processing, sound, and the built-in hard drive saves you from having to spend money on a memory card. Although the "network adapter" is built-in, you need to pay a monthly fee in order to connect to XBox Live.

The XBox library of games is fantastic (Splinter Cell, Ninja Gaiden, EA Sports, Fable, KOTOR, Burnout 3, etc.), though where it does best is in how much better it interprets multi-platform games. Games like Red Dead Revolver, Grand Theft Auto, Prince of Persia, and others just play much better on XBox than on PS2 or GameCube. I initally bought all multi-platform games on PS2, but now I usually buy them on XBox.

I'm really quite happy with my XBox, and enjoy a lot of my games on it. I just wish that the controllers were a little more ergonomic.
