4.0 out of 5 stars A great system, July 3, 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: XBOX Console (Console)
The original Xbox was (and though a bit dated, still is) a great video game console. Released in November 2001, the Xbox allowed you to play games (including Popular titles such as Halo: Combat Evolved, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and even the recently released Madden NFL 09), watch DVD's (although you must first purchase an inexpensive Xbox DVD remote), and play and rip tracks from CD's (which can even be used as custom, in-game tracks with some Xbox games). Other features include a built-in hard drive (which has plenty of room for game saves, downloaded Xbox content, and music), four controller ports, and Xbox LIVE (an online gaming service allowing subscribers to play Xbox games online with other subscribers around the world and download new content for their games to the system's hard drive). If your looking for a gaming system that will keep you entertained for a good while, but you can't afford a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, you should give the original Xbox a try.

And, for a trivia tidbit... Terminator 2 Extreme Edition was a 720p HD version of the movie that won't play at such resolution on any DVD player but does on an XBOX console as the movie uses PC 4x compression (so it also plays on a computer). This doesn't work on an XBOX 360 because the 360 plays movies at normal DVD resolution (one thing an original XBOX does better than a 360). This is the only commercial movie ever made in this format (proving HD formats weren't necessay for HD movies).
