They(broadband/HDD) could have a big effect on gaming?...are you listening to your self?...ever heard of DOOM? how about QUAKE?..or even Counter-stirke?...They are PC games that were playable on-line LONG before any console had on-line access..not only that but they can and were moded and still are to this day....something that is impossible on the xbox..
You make it seem as if the xbox will revolutionize gaming with it\'s BB and HDD...you(sadly) do not realize that it\'s already been taken advantage of LONG AGO on the PC.
It should be common sense that I was refering to the console gaming market. I realize this has been done on PC, but it has never been done on a console before. It\'s revolutionary for a console, and I believe future consoles will take advantage of what hard drives and built in modems have to offer as well.
LOL...okay...they have had like 5 major shows all over the world...hyped their graphics and specs far beyond what sony did...reveal every game developer and game coming to the public MONTHS before they are to launch..and you call this an "adventure"?? what adventure? we know every damn thing about the xbox.
You missed my point. And the sarcasm in your reply made you sound like a total oaf, congratularions.
Microsoft is new to the industry, hence initially, nothing was preestablished. Sony and Nintendo.. you knew from the start most what to expect, from their past consoles. Microsoft.. there was nothing known as far as what to expect. Considering how Microsoft has been pretty open with their things, Xbox seems to have the more interesting timeline. Not all of the things on this timeline are good, however--a lot of it is bad for Microsoft\'s entry to the console market. I\'m merely saying that Xbox attracts my attention more often than other consoles simply because there is more to give attention to.
In all reality, what I\'ve said here would have applied far more a few months ago than it does now.
More to await?....so i guess nintendo has NOTHING coming correct? yup..that\'s the ticket..lets just throw everything we wanted to know about nintendo and their gamecube out the window
Remove "await." I was thinking more along the lines of scattered news things. Instead of long periods of nothing, there is news scattered about frequently. Instead of getting all news at E3, news is spread throughout, as you said, 5 trade shows.
Things are less.. boring with Xbox. Disappointments included, however. Read:
I\'m not looking at this as "Xbox is solid excitment, you get a constant stream of awesome news about it daily!" Please don\'t infer that from this, that would be totally wrong and reflect me in a totally different way than I intend. What I\'d really like to say here.. I\'m having trouble putting it down to where it sounds right. Don\'t blatantly flame me for what I have said here, because it could easliy be misinterpreted.
In fact, perhaps this would be best if we dropped it. Such things like this, that I have trouble putting down in words, generally end up getting misinterpreted and becoming pointless arguments that drag on and on forever.
It would not bother me in the least if you simply disregarded this and the response to the whole "adventure" thing. Really, feel free to--it would save both of us some time. It\'d also save you the humiliation of totally misinterpreting what I am trying to say, and save the repitition of me having to reexplain it all.
Disregard anything above or below the area I speak of.. then I may become somewhat angered.
Its good that you agree with the majority of gamers.
Your next door neighbor, the kid in your history class who picks his nose, your older cousin, and the old guy in the alley are not the majority of gamers. You don\'t know the majority of gamers. You can\'t speak for the majority of gamers.
Of course, neither can I. For all we know, you could be right.. the majority of gamers don\'t give a damn about Munch\'s Oddysee. Of course, for all we know, you could easily also be wrong.
So what is the point? i guess that was your little(and pathetic) attempt to make the GCN look bad or "limited" compared to xbox.
You exagerative, word manipulating freak. I\'m not saying the Gamecube is bad or limited in any way at all whatsoever. I\'m simply saying that I\'d rather get a DVD player and a gaming console than just a gaming console. This does not mean that I think Gamecube is inferior to Xbox, I\'d just prefer getting a DVD player also.
I still plan on getting a Gamecube completely regardless of this because I like what Nintendo has to offer.
if an "all round fellow" thinks the GCN is bad and not worth getting because it lacks features found on the PC and xbox(it\'s obvious you assume this) then i guess i\'m an angel.
Read above. I love how you blow up words so much. You could capture a 2 inch minnow and claim it\'s a 5 foot great white shark that has teeth 4 feet longer than normal and can fly due to radiation from nuclear tests in Asia.
Saying I am at all biased against Nintendo is a load of crap. I\'ve bought every Nintendo console to date, I\'ve owned 4 Game Boys of differing styles (5, once Game Boy Advance is released), and plan to get a Gamecube. I don\'t know what the hell you draw such horribly moronic inferences from.
also, the xbox is aimed at the PC user-base...so i must defend the PC.
But the Xbox does not compete
with the PC in any way. The Xbox competes with Playstation 2 and Gamecube, and it is trying to draw an audience from the PC\'s userbase. But it does not compete with the PC in any way, it isn\'t going to actually take
the PC\'s users away. It\'ll merely draw them into the console world as well. The PC market is pretty much seperate from the console market, similar to the handheld market. It doesn\'t compete with consoles, though it focuses around videogames.
I must ask: Why did you do this? You\'re wasting so much of our time by arguing me in a topic like this. If this was a topic where we were discussing things, I could see it as okay for you to argue me (of course). But we were just supposed to answer questions here.
Had you simply answered the questions, I wouldn\'t have done this to you.
