I don\'t understand it. What games will XBox have? Why are you ignoring the Gamecube? We still don\'t know enough about XBox and Gamecube. Sheesh - every time I turn around, I see someone else reading their crystal ball. Sega and Nintendo will just go out of business will Sony/Microsoft get 100 million sales apiece.
This DESPITE the XBox being unknown to casual gamers. Despite the XBox having no exclusive, recognizable franchises (other than the Sony hand-me-downs). Casual gamers don\'t wait for systems. They buy it when they can afford it - the little critters get so goldarn excited. They don\'t know diddly jack about XBox or Gamecube. You wanna tell millions of people to "just wait" this holiday season? If you\'re not willing to do that, then you need to realize that both the PS2 and Dreamcast will have millions of users by the time XBox gets here.
Let me summarize all the posts:
"Say - who do you think will win the next console war?"
"Well, whoever is the most powerful, of course!"
This frustration you\'re going through with PS2\'s small library will happen again when the XBox launches (are specs finalized yet? how \'bout the launch list?) and when Gamecube launches. It also happened with the Dreamcast. People get a system at launch, poop themselves with excitement, buy the 4 games they wanted... and run home giggling like school girls. Then, after 2 weeks, they\'re bored with their new launch system because they\'ve beaten the games (they only have 4!). It happens with every launch.
