1) A console produced by Microsoft in which they lose money per console sold.
2) A horrible, generic, clunky console created by the low quality company, Microsoft. It is a console that only survives because of Halo, and without it, it would be nothing. Microsoft believes it is a valid strategy to buy out as many companies as possible to create games for their console only; even though once said games are released, they are still awful. Known to have a large following of Xbots
, they will blindly sacrifice their lives to make sure that everyone believes Xbox is the best just because it has Halo.
3) A console which has two good exclusive titles: Halo and Halo 2. All other titles are a) bad or b) multiplatform.
4) A console that is of such poor quality that thousands had to be recalled because the adaptor cable was defective and could cause fires. Controllers are bigger than most houses.
Samuel: I think that I am going to buy an Xbox; I want to support my favorite company, Microsoft.
George: Well, if you really want to support them, you shouldn't buy an Xbox. They lose money each time one is sold; so you would be doing them a favor. Besides, if you want it for the games (read: Halo), then you should just get a better computer, since all of its games are ported onto the PC eventually, anyway.
Samuel: Thanks, George! You're a real pal!
A system made when Bill Gates realised he didn't have enough money.
Since programmers didn't like the XBox when is was announced, Microsoft bought a bunch of companies to make exclusive games, such as Bungie and Rareware.
Also, the system in competition with the Playstation 2 for people who only buy EA sports games.
Halo was originally going to be for Mac, GCN, and PS2.
The first attempt by Microsoft to enter the console gaming market, the XBOX is, beneath its sleek, black (and OMG HUGE!!!1 LOL) exterior, was simply a mid-range (for the time) gaming PC in a console's clothing.
A 733MHz Intel Pentium III processor and nVidia GPU combined with a regular 3.5" desktop hard disk drive and a modified Windows 2000 operating system constitute a PC by another name, but, perhaps, smells sweeter.
The result - a hot, noisy and (as noted above) OMG HUGE!!!1 LOL - console, but one with remarkable gaming power which secured a solid second place next to Sony's somewhat overhyped PlayStation 2. While the PS2 took the lion's share of the market in the fourth-generation console wars it was far from the walk over predicted in the popular press and Microsoft easily displaced Nintendo who were, a priori, predicted to take a comfortable if disappointing second place position.
The XBOX 360 has broken the trend somewhat, ditching the PC architecture and Windows-derived operating system in favour of something much more console-like (and sadly less OMG HUGE LOL!!!1) and, ariving a year earlier to market than the currently missing-in-action PlayStation 3 may yet provide Microsoft with the dominant position in console gaming. But at this stage the smart money is on a three way tie in the fifth generation console gaming market.
I love my XBOX (even though its OMG HUGE LOL!!!1)
"So I was like playing my x-box..."
The oversized video game system that would have died at launch if it wasn't for Halo
I love Halo, not Xbox.
An object used for comparison to an object of large size.
"Holy shit! that building's almost as big as an X-Box!"
A Halo machine soon to also be a Halo 2 machine. Nothing more.
Dude, let's go play my Halo machine.
The wrong way to spell the name of Microsoft's home console, the Xbox.
"There's no hyphen in the word Xbox, you douchebags."
