For the record I have one of these pieces of shit along with a gamer tag but it's all collecting dust.A console that instead of actually having games on the PS2 or even some games on the gamecubes level, has to rely on overhyping there games with gimicks so that they SEEM good. Allthough it is the most powerful console of this generation the only games that show it's power are the tecmo games such as Ninja Gaiden, Dead or alive 3 etc. Final Fantasy on the ps2, and the RE series on Gamecube show more time and effort than halfassed overhyped games such as Halo 2. The console and it's games seem to only attract 8-12 year olds and casual gamers.
This is how you distinguish a real gamer from a casual 12 year old noob.
Ask him if he'd rather play a Metal Gear Solid game or Halo 2. Then judge by his answer.
Xbox fanboy- w00t I just got a Xbox for my 12th birthday and now I can make my gamertag. ooh whats this a friend request from "6th grader666"?
Xbox fanboy- No online PC games arent better. I get to pay to play with 10 year olds.
Xbox fanboy 3- Dont worry Halo I know your a noob game with huge hitboxes, autoaim and pussyass shield so you can run away in the middle of battle and try to attack again 3 5 seconds later, but I'll buy you and stick next to you cause it's all us casual gamers and children have.
Real talk- Sony specializes electronics and nintendo has been in the game business forever. Microsoft is only good for making computer Operating systems. The Xbox is just an attemp to to reel in casual gamers with a bunch gimicks. That was even said by a MS rep at the Xbox 360 press conference.
