I have XBox Live. I have MechAssault and Sega NHL 2K3 for it, but I barely play it.

It just doesn't compare to online PC gaming. Battlefield 1942 is better than anything consoles will ever have.
 
2003-03-15 11:27:00 PM  
I applaud XBox for making Live broadband only, thus eliminating the 56kers and all lag.

However I use PS2 and my computer because I'm not paying a subsciption fee for internet that i solely use on XBox. If I could use my own internet access for free that wouldn't be a problem.

I hope that PS3 only allows broadband.

You guys are silly, but I just want to find fellow farkers to play with, cause I know I sure as hell love reading and modding your comments all day, *cough*sarcasm*cough* Just kidding! I adore my xbox and yes I know there are people out there that hate it and like other consoles and I might eventually get one of them, but until that time, I just want to have fellow farkers kick my ass at Ghost Recon and NFK2K as well as the other games I have.

Thank you guys.

Consoles? Who cares? There are only two reasons why I would actually buy a console, Vice City and Halo. Any other games are already ported to PC, or suck ass.

MY account name is Junin, for Xbox Live I have

On my PS2 I have Tony Hawk 3 and 4 as well as Twisted Metal Black online.

*And for what its worth, you can play any system-linkable game online using Xbox tunnel
http://www.gamespyarcade.com/support/tunnel_xbox.shtml

For my 40 dollar one year membership to the Live network, I get a well maintained network login, using the same account (and handle) for all games. If I buy a new game, all my friends from other games are carried over. Obnoxious people can actully be removed from the system through the complaint system, as well as good players receiving comments from other players. Well worth it. But both Mechwarrior and Unreal would outright suck with out it. The single player games just arnt good enough to hold on there own. The extra levels and new features are a nice touch too.

As fun as a pc gaming can be. Theres something nice about just having people over and swapping controllers between people or just lying on a couch and playing a game. Not always do-able on a pc. :) Mechwarrior has a build in 2 player option, allowing 2 people to use the same system to play on the live network as Handle and Handle-Guest. Thats a nice touch too.

Lets see here: would I rather spend $300 on a console that does absolutely nothing beyond games, is owned by a quite evil corporation, and stick only to what is avaliable on that console. Or I could buy a All-In-Wonder 9700Pro for $100 more that has every kind of input and output known to man.

Oh, dur. I guess if anyone wants to add me I'm "BrickWall" on Xbox Live. Tryin' to think of a name, all I could think is that I was hitting a brick wall thinking of one. Retarded I know, but I wanted to play rather than try and think of a stupid Gamertag. STOP MAKING FUN OF ME!

I have a 2.4 P4 with 512MB Ram and an ATI 9700 Pro. I also have an Xbox, and PS2. It's all fun. I have to say though, on my PC, everything is better, but I enjoy them all ( when my GF is not biatching at me).
 
2003-03-15 11:59:36 PM  
no Xbox Live, but only because I don't have broadband. I go on a gaming board and there is alot of garbage about the Xbox on there so let me dispell some myths.

1. It's huge and heavy compared to the PS2: Yup...the PS2 will be huge and heavy also if you added in better graphics hardware + a modem (which the Xbox comes with), and a harddrive, which is impossible at the moment.

2. The controller is huge: Not since they released the S-controller about 9 months ago.

3. No good games except Halo: that was also true quite awhile ago. Xbox doesn't 'appear' to have any good games because it doesn't own franchises like Grand Theft Auto and Final Fantasy. Truth is...it is giving the 'little guy' the chance to start new franchises. And they are awesome.

4. You have to buy the DVD kit seperate: yeah..but you don't have to buy the modem or memory card seperately, so that's a bonus.

5. Microsoft/Bill Gates is the devil/antichrist: I won't argue this because it's kind of like trying to teach my cat that the vacuum won't eat it.
 
2003-03-16 12:00:34 AM  
Didn't the Xbox die? Microsoft lost a shiat load of money on it or so I heard.
 
2003-03-16 12:00:36 AM  
I have an XBox but haven't gotten Live yet. Expect I will sometime this year. Definitely when Halo 2 comes out (2004? Damn.)

And you know, saying "Xbox Sucks" is really stupid. I mean. Really. Stupid. Games are what counts, not the console they are played upon. I remember when I was a kid, I had a buddy who would turn red and start screaming anytime someone said they had an Atari 2600. "DON'T YOU KNOW INTELLIVISION IS A SUPERIOR SYSTEM???" he'd scream.

If I had unlimited funds, I'd buy all the consoles, because all of them have some amazing games. PS2 had GTA3. XBox has Halo. Gamecube has Zelda.

Saying "My system is AWESOME, your system SUCKS," is about as childish as it gets. What, do you own Sony stock or something?
 
2003-03-16 12:03:22 AM  
Sony can eat my ass. I camped out for that shiat-tastic system and sold it a month after getting an Xbox. I just couldn't justify owning a system with that many low quality games. Sure, Xbox has its share but it has more great games then PS2 as far as I'm concerned. Course I'm not into RPGs, either.
And, really, why is Microsoft so evil? Because you have nothing better to biatch about or because you haven't looked into the asshole things Sony has pulled to? I swear the vast majority of American's are mindless twits.

Last game I played on a console was Gran Turismo on the PS. Never have touched anything newer than that though. Spent far more time on the Atari 7800 and the original 8 bit nintendo.
 
2003-03-16 12:07:06 AM  
I like the Xbox, but I'm not so sure I'm hot on XBox Live. It seems kinda cool, but they better make damn sure that there is a shiat ton of bandwidth for all the gamers. Not only that, but really I can get better LAN fun on my PC (they have to sell me on WHY I should get Live).

Anyhow those that are console fanboys for console <insert console name here>, you guys need to grow up. All the platforms are good. I like the PC for games like BG, DD, CS, and WC3. I like the Xbox for games like Halo, SC, and MW (although I did like MW on the Xbox as well as the PC...I prefered the PC, but the Xbox did well with the port). The PC2 rocks with GTA3/VC!!! I don't know anybody with a game cube, so I can't say...

Anyway, if XBox Live is cool I can see a TON of people on it..
 
2003-03-16 12:07:23 AM

2003-03-16 12:10:52 AM  
AlgertMan PC gaming isn't worth the money? I don't get it. Most PC games don't take a top of the line system and a lot are modable so you can play them for quite some time. Counter-Strike is still VERY popular and the NWN mods coming out are pretty awsome (I'm STILL working on mine, I just don't have the time anymore). Not to mention most PC games are CHEAPER then console games...

There are few games that take top of the line systems. Hell my 1ghz laptop with a geforce2go can play almost anything I can throw at it (save for MW...ug).

Try Warcraft 3 and you will change your mind about PC gaming ;-

i have it... worst 50 bucks i spent.

gamer tag is divad

i only have the demo disc. i rented mech assault and ghost recon. The games lag and you cant find good pinging servers because none of the games implement a ping feature (quick!!! HIDE THE shiatTY PINGS!)... And im pretty sure that i paid 50 bucks for the use of my OWN HARDWARE... good god... so MS made servers to keep track of how hard im sucking in moto GP. but i have to host a 16 man server on my XBOX and my cable connection with 128k up??? anyone know for sure if games are hosted locally?

and then there is just lack of support... i figure any game put out after xbox live launches should have LIVE support if it has a 2player mode. how long has XBOX live been out? how many XBOX Live games are there? yea.

god... anyway... if anyone wants divad it will be up for grabs in august. no way im paying another 50 bucks for JACK shiat.

Hey, at least the money I spend on MS products stays in the US instead of Japan.
 
2003-03-16 12:26:43 AM  

My 2 cents. Had a console up to SNES (played on N64 rented from vid store). Then I got my first computer in '97. Wouldn't want to play games on anything else. Can't beat a keyboard, trakball, and modding most any game you can install on a PC.


Glad to see XBox is coming along though. Wonder if MS will ever overtake PS2, or PS3 when it comes out, or will XBox turn into another Jaguar ?


Probably the ONLY reason I'd want to buy a console though is to play Madden NFL on it. Really, this is the only game where I feel using keyboard is too ridiculous.

 
2003-03-16 12:31:18 AM

Bivens: The first games were on computers and then the Apple make them pretty popular and THEN the Atari came out. PC games came first (mainframe games actually came first)

Isn't Sony just as bad as MS if you are going to be like that? Sony is a big multi-national corporation that is pretty evil...But whatever...

Have finally purchased a router so I can do the xbox live thing (that is, without pulling my ehternet cable outta my computer), however, I am waiting for more titles to go live. I already have mech assault and nba 2k3 but those are not quite compelling enough for me to get it. It would be nice if apex was live compatible, I am really diggin that game. On the computer vs. console debate, I do agree that the pc games are generally better than their console counterparts, however, with the console there is no endless tweaking or patching. Case in point, I love Commmand and Conquer: Generals, but the getting a net game started with one of your friends is such a pain in the ass I have completely given up. Then again, it is an EA game and I should not really be surprised that the net code sucks cranks. Also, I have never had a problem with a console game not working right out of the box. On the PC side, after purchasing a game the first thing is do is go and patch the damn thing. One last thing, anyone thinking about buying Masters of Orion 3, save your money and buy Galactic Civilizations when it comes out later this month. That is all.

Well, first off, SOCOM is a Sony 1st party game, chances are slim there's an XBox version. ;)

Anyway, as of now, XBox live is very much a closed off system. People log into the Live servers, get an opponent, and then either play a game hosted on the Live system (e.g., Mechassault), or initiate a P2P game (e.g., NFL2kBlah). Sony's (and Nintendo's) online structure is different in that publishers and developers get to run their own systems. In theory, Playstation 2 and GameCube (and PC) owners could play together, but politics more than anything would probably stop that. XBox is pretty much out of the loop unless Microsoft rewires it, so to speak.

The real test will be the Ghouls and Ghosts MMORPG that's coming out for all three consoles and the PC.

I bought an Xbox when it first came out (like an idiot- $300). Now the damn thing has "shiat the bed". I'm going to get a new one when I feel like it, is Xbox live any good?

So... did the retailer or Microsoft refund your money on the first one?

If not, your decision to buy ANOTHER one after the first broke down strikes me as a fantastically stupid decision that flies in the face of sensible reasoning.

You know what they say about fools and their money...

To the people that actually DO have X-Box live: how's the voice chat? Is it cool or is it just 13 year olds calling you a noob or a fag?

And please can we NOT start a PC vs. Console flame war? Neither is better, they both have pros and cons.

PC
Pro: top of the line PCs blow away consoles, downloadable upgrades and mods, online play been around forever. Best types of games: Shooters (mouse and keyboard baby), Real-tiem strategy, RPGs.
Con: Very expensive to keep up with technology curve, patches, system incompatibility, not as comfy as sitting on the couch in front of the TV, not very easy for multiplayer gaming on one machine.

Consoles
Pro: no bugs, patches, or installation issues; far, far cheaper (a good console lasts 5 years and costs what a high-end graphics card does--a computeris top-of-the-line for maybe 6 months); easy to crowd friends around.
Best games: sports, fighting, action/platformers
Cons: no upgradeability, no mods/downloads (although that isprobably coming), inferior TV resolution (although HD and progressive scan are catching up).

I bought my PS2 because it was much cheaper than upgrading my computer. And it's great. But I also wish I had a computer that will run, say, SimCity 4 (although most people tell me the NSA's supercomputers would chug on it). True gamers don't put down platforms. True gamers play as many platforms as they can get their hands on, because there's great stuff on all of them.
 
2003-03-16 01:39:28 AM  
Got live, and when I have time to play it's great. Wish there were some better live games though. Unreal 2003 for the PC is just so much better than on xbox. I do like the download content, just extended the life span of Splinter Cell with the new level.

I got selected as a beta tester during the second wave. Been lovin it ever since. I can kick a lot of ass in MGP, and can pretty well hold my own in GR.

I had Unreal Championship, but it ran horribly on my XB. Dont know if anyone else experienced it, but the framerate on mine was terrible. Other than that, I love my Xbox. I have 50+ songs my HD right now cause the custom soundtrack feature of games is great.

Unreal is worst game. ever. Sold it on Gotapex for terrible loss just to get rid of it, even warned the buyer how bad it was. Waiting for Halo2 since Halo can't be played on "Live". Total asshat-ripoff artists! Halo2 will own me, however. Right now I own a doorstop. :(

Sadly, now that Xbox Live allows downloading of "upgrades" there will probably be some "features" that are fixed later on. Several gaming magazines have speculated on this topic. Also, there have been some buggy console games. They suck and never leave Japan (usually) to be sold in the U.S.

A-MEN to the A-MEN. I bought a PS2 and Xbox because they each had something which the other didn't. I would have bought my PS2 for GT3 alone and the same goes for the Xbox and Halo. I'm planning on buying a GameCube so I can play the Resident Evil updates, Rogue Squadron, etc. Lately I've mainly been playing PC games such as Unreal 2 and Age of Mythology among others. But, the consoles still get their time and never more than when friends are over.

Economics and ease of use. I can get an Xbox or PS2 for $200, and a Gamecube for $149 and it will (hopefully) be supported for 5 years.

Hate to threadjack, but would you happen to know if the second track Tom played at Gatecrasher 2001 might be part of that soundtrack? (if you haven't heard it before, go to JunkieXL.nl and download the mp3 of the set... you'll be glad you did, that second track is AWESOME).

If so, I'm pushing for a release of it too. If not... then I hope it's on the new album. ;-)
 
2003-03-16 03:06:52 AM  
Oh. Nintendo has the authority to cancel other company's online projects? I better go tell the guys working on Ghouls and Ghosts Online for the PS2, GC and XBox, then...
 
2003-03-16 03:12:22 AM  
I never said they cancelled any other companies ventures, but they have pulled support. There WERE many other projects out there but the industry response was that they did not want to pursue creating games for an unsupported line.
 
2003-03-16 03:16:45 AM  
Nintendo releases the adapters alongside PSO; ergo, as long as Sega keeps printing up copies of PSO, there should be adapters available. I'm tripping over the things, they're just as abundant as the PS2 adapter. I suggest you have a talk with your Nintendo rep (and reps, while not meaning to sound rude, are often not exactly the first to get the most up-to-date information.)

2003-03-16 03:23:48 AM  
This info was given us before release. I have not seen one of the things since November. We were told we would recieve one shippment, and that's what we got. Same for every other store in our region. If PSO had been a success on Cube, I could see a reversal in this, but it was not. It's reception was lukewarm, at best.

I do not have XBL, but I have played on it. Very awesome. However, just a little not for all you people hoping for a five year console life-span... don't necessarily count on it.

MS, Sony, and Nintendo are prepping gen3 to come out as earlier as 2005. It really depends on who decides to leave the gate first, and with the progression of CELL tech advancing rapidly, Sony may very well be first again. Look for PS3 on exactly PS2's fifth anniversy.

And yes, it is true, general console life is getting shorter, due mainly to the PC market. The better PCs get, the better PC games look, and the faster consoles have to upgrade capabilities to be somewhat on par with PC games.

Yes in fact. I use a wireless router/switch made by

I just purchased an Xbox after looking at all of the options listed above. Here's my 2¢ (for those who care):

After spending the holidays trying to decide between Xbox and PS2. I asked everyone their opinion and, except for sexless teenagers and myopic middle-aged men, everyone basically said, "PS2 has more games, Xbox has Enet and HD, but their about the same...and GameCube is for kids."

I got Xbox because it has better graphics, the hard drive, the ethernet built-in, HDTV capability and for $250 I got it, two controllers, and four games (including Splinter Cell and Gotham Racing...thank you, Toys-R-Us!). PS2 for $200 gave my the system and a controller. The cheapskate in me won the day.

And for those of you with the "PC is better" view, not all of us can have a $2000 PC connected to our TV where our surround sound system, couches, larger screen TV (vs. the "whopping" 20 inch CRT) and a more comfortable gaming experience is located. If I was playing at work, I would say you are right. But work time is for FARK.

I'm still holding out for Xbox live. Waiting for Wolfenstein. That, and I would like to stay married. But that's me.

That said, when I get Xbox LIve, I'm going to beat all of you like a rented mule. Old School style! GIDDY UP!

I've got it and all the games except 7 or 8 of them. I used live for about 10 minutes before I realized how creepy it was to talk to dateless idiotic stoners while trying to play a game. Now I only play online games on the PC where I don't have to listen to people.
 
2003-03-16 11:32:02 AM  
I have my Starter Kit, just need to buy a cable to route my modem to my XBox. Right now, in terms of online full version games all I have is MechAssault and Unreal Championship, I'll probably pick-up Whacked! because it's dirt cheap.

If you want a modem for cube just go to their website, they still sell them there.

And I suck at them both...

I have a PC and a PS2. The PS2 is good for sports games (Madden) and the Final Fantasies, as well as the Grand Theft Autos. The ability to play all my old PSX games really kicks ass, too. The PC owns at FPS's, RTS's, and non-Square RPG's.

Xbox Live? Haha. I don't need a bunch of twelve year olds shouting in my ear telling me I suck and that I'm 'gay.' No thanks. And you know that Live is in trouble when EA says it will no longer develop for the Live network but will throw everything behind developing online content for PS2 and Gamecube.


It's actually kinda fun. Like a raucous party. Cos you can rip into them like nobody's business. For insatnce, a 12 year old calls you 'gay'. Then you break out some huge tirade about ritalin and soccer moms. The best part is when they quit out because it ends up being all true. Fun for a few hours, but it wears on you.

Oh, and I'm pretty good at the other games too, but hockey rocks.

Have finally purchased a router so I can do the xbox live thing (that is, without pulling my ehternet cable outta my computer), however, I am waiting for more titles to go live. I already have mech assault and nba 2k3 but those are not quite compelling enough for me to get it. It would be nice if apex was live compatible, I am really diggin that game. On the computer vs. console debate, I do agree that the pc games are generally better than their console counterparts, however, with the console there is no endless tweaking or patching. Case in point, I love Commmand and Conquer: Generals, but the getting a net game started with one of your friends is such a pain in the ass I have completely given up. Then again, it is an EA game and I should not really be surprised that the net code sucks cranks. Also, I have never had a problem with a console game not working right out of the box. On the PC side, after purchasing a game the first thing is do is go and patch the damn thing. One last thing, anyone thinking about buying Masters of Orion 3, save your money and buy Galactic Civilizations when it comes out later this month. That is all."

If you think GameCubes are just for kids, then you're ignoring the library of games. And you're ignorant.

Can you get NetHack for XBox Live? That's all that matters.

Xbox Gamertag = ThreeBlindMice
I have Ghost Recon currently. I Had Whacked (Quake with cartoon layovers for the unknowing)but I hardly play online with it. I also have a rocking PC, and all 3 consoles, and the best games of the lot are GTA/VC or Kingdom Hearts on PS2. Metroid Prime on the Cube. and there are a whole slew of games I like on Xbox, but none stick out as ones I love. The console on the other hand it the best console of the 3 to game with (as long as you have the controller "s") but Morrowind was excellent except for the caching bug... I have nothing bad to say about any of the consoles. They all do their thing, and they are all different. I't arguing apples and oranges people, but I do think 'Ol billy gate$ has the green to throw into the game for as many continues as he wants, so Xbox is here to stay no matter what anyone thinks/says.

I don't have an Xbox. The last console I bought was an
Atari Jaguar. I got the p1mp CD addon too, y0.

I just wandered in here cause MyStIcMaRa ROCKXXX!!! w0000000000

that is all.
 
2003-03-16 06:01:26 PM  
I might as well post off topic, everyone else does...

no XBox, just PS2 & Gamecube, but play SOCOM way tooo much online, it is so fun (esp. w/ 13 yr. old screechy voiced kids screaming obscenities & "everyone go left!!! go left!!!" all the time...so fun)

Also Hawk PS4 and NFL2K3...havent gotten the gamecube adapter yet, but w/ PS Online being the only thing available doesnt seem worth it.

You DO NOT need to plug in the headset. Strictly for voice communication only. You can also block people who annoy you.

"And you know that Live is in trouble when EA says it will no longer develop for the Live network but will throw everything behind developing online content for PS2 and Gamecube."

No, EA is in trouble online wise. They have invested a lot of money to build their own online setup. So far, NFS on PC has bombed, and Sims Online has been less-than-spectacular. PS2 used to boast that they could have both 56k-ers and Broadband, and the problems have been causing more and more online-enabled PS2 games to say "Broadband ONLY". XBOX has a small percentage of total installed units, but has sold more online kits than PS2.

In any case, supporting XBOX Live would mean EA would have to ditch their online infrastructure, at least for the XBOX. Its money, not a "measure of success", especially since GC is a distant 3rd.

I have one, just sold my PS2 to buy it.

XecuterII, baby! Complete with 120 GB drive.

PS2? Meh. I had about 110 games - about 5 didn't suck.

Mind you, that's subject to taste, but this thing totally owns.

On a side note, the mention of the Jaguar brings a tear to my eye.
I've still got mine boxed up and under the bed. I occasionly break
it out for some Tempest 2000, man I still could play that all night
It's a shame it didn't get more support. There just weren't many
great games for it, and some of the earlier ones were real turds.
Oddly enough there are still hobby-types putting out games for
it and there is some convention every year.

Dreamcast pwnz

The Dreamcast was a great system. The system is worth owning just to play PowerStone2, the best multi-player, party, fighting game ever. My Dreamcast is the only system I actually have right here in front of me. The PS2 and Xbox are connected to the TV in the living room. The Dreamcast is connected to my monitor via the VGA adapter and gets a lot of play time.

How's the XecuterII working? Looks like the install is a snap. Also, which version did you get?
 
2003-03-16 08:01:59 PM  
I just ordered mine pre-modded from modchip.ca. Didn't want the hassle (I tried getting a Magic 3 set up in my PS2 - what a train wreck that was).

This new chip, combined with Evolution X, rocks. Fast load times, no noise, super all-around response, no worries of dead lasers. Can't go wrong.

Unreal Championship is all I have.

Mine is f'd up, though. It disconnects me exactly 2 minutes into every game I try to play.
