GTA ON THE BOX!? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME! It would make the X-Box the best system without a doubt. The only question mark I had was the GTA series... but if that comes out for the box.... I'll be so psyched. Hopefully I made the right choice a year ago when I bought the box

True, but give XBOX a few more years like PS2 has ;).

Then everyone will be saying XBOX owns the new PS3 coming out (it's called something else though). **** runs smoother on the XBOX (obviously).

Smash Bros Melee is ownage and FZERO looks like the ****.

For us RPGamers, the Xbox offers almost nothing. And since I own a PC, the Xbox offers me nothing at all. :P

I have a PS2 and a GameCube and enjoy each for what they both bring to the table. Smash Brothers Melee is an awesome time, especially with all four players against each other. Metroid Prime is the sheet as well. IT seems like anything made directly by Nintendo will always be golden. I'm looking forward to the next Mario Kart game on the Cube, I think some or all copies will have the N64 version packed with it as well. And yes, the Super Nintendo version of Mario Kart was pretty darn good. I love the PS2 for its wide array of games, especially title like Gran Turismo, Vice City, and the Castlevania lines, but then again there are too many to list. A buddy of mine has an X-Box, and Halo can be played and played without getting boring. I do like the ability to load up your own music to some of the games out there. I'm a big fan of wrestling games, more importantly the Wrestlemania and No Mercy games for the N64. I love the style of gameplay, and even though the creat-awrestler may not be as deep as others, I love that function the most. I think it'd be cool if the same company respoinsible for No Mercy could make a similar game on the X-Box and have your own intro music loaded up for your created wrestle. Or, you could always upload their current theme as well to the established wrestlers. Oh, and to beat someone to it, I know the current wrestling product out there right now isn't the strongest.

First: Xbox has the 7 gig harddrive which is great for ripping cd's to. With MechAssault there are downloadable maps etc and Xbox live is solid.

I've enjoyed Halo, Knights of the Old Republic, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and I'm eagerly awaiting Fable. Brute Force and MechAssault were pretty fun also.
