Doesnt need one, its all self explanitory.
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)
word used to describe something huge
Chris: did you see that girls ass
Sangit: yea man its XBOX!!!
The 8th wonder of the world, not because of its power, but because of its size. Known to man as the largest console in the world and probably the universe. Not only do you get the enjoyment out of playing crap games on it like Halo, but when suspended from a crane you can even use your Xbox as a wrecking ball!
Someone get this Xbox off me!!
A hideous weapon released by Microsoft designed to brainwash children, ranging from ages 6-49, into destroying its competition (Gamecube/PS2). It is also capable of acting on its own if the user is not coordinated enough to wield the obscenely sized controller. (Highly flammable)
"Dude, I forgot to turn off my xbox, and it fucking burned down my garage...ON PURPOSE!"
Contary to popular belief, the xbox isn't really a game console but a nuclear missile silo that is controled by Bill Gates as the Playstation 2 can shoot nuclear scud missiles and the Gamecube is an atomic bomb. Now with the new consoles coming out, they may use them and the unknown weapons they have in the new consoles.
The truth of the playstation, xbox, and gamecube is out there!!!
A powerful gaming console that was the only basis for which developers could untilize their dreams with games like Unreal, Halo, Ninja Gaiden, and Barbie Horse Adventures. Although it flopped in Japan due to it's incredulous size (even I had to wonder, what the hell was up with the controllers?) it revolutionized gaming history with it's incredible online system, it boasts powr the Playstaion 2 can only dream of, and for obvious reason, it came out afterwards. People who say the Xbox is inferior to PS2 are people who are too blind to realize great things.
If you like FPS's and sport's games and like better graphics, get an Xbox.
If you love RPG's and adventure games more then the patter, then a PS2 is for you.
If you love modern classics, new and old, then a GameCube is just your choice.
