i think it looks pretty cool. I`m not looking for a design upgrade as much as I am graphics and performance. It costs just as much as the original xbox did when it came out.

Lol, anyone who thinks Halo 3 will come out for the original Xbox is living in fantasyland. Halo is releases under the Microsoft name (as well as Bungie), and the prospect of Halo 3 will be a major selling point for the 360. It`s rumored the H3 will release near the PS3 release date.

jwcgator chill dude, my fisherprice comment was directed to the overall look of the flipping console, not the gameplay, truth be told I have played more games on the gamecube than on any other machine, I am currently playing Baten kaitos, and am crapping my pants waiting for the new Zelda game. And that violence is corrupting the world comment.... hehe just read what andread said, plus res evil is not a non-violent game is it?
Im just fed up with those smug fanboys (girls) who follow these consoles as if they were gods, give me a break, if you can only afford one, stick to the one with the type of games you like, if you can afford all of them.... what a lucky person you are, but stop giving me all this NITENDO IS BETTER THAN PS crap.
Rant Over.

ummm...the point is that it still an XBOX. Looks like they have just improved the cpu unit. They haven`t changed much the over all design and the controller.

Also, Current graphics on the current system are really good, sometimes practically stunning (Halo 2). I dont know what difference the release of a new system will do. Besides look at the starting line up, They don`t have any games which are going to be a blockbuster.

My opinion is that this is going to be a flop. It has been atleast 3 years since the release of the actual xbox, Many people will not be willing to fork over $300+ for a new console and games. The original Xbox will live on and games will still be made for it. (Cough *Halo 3* Cough)

The perfect example is the nintendo DS. The Gameboy Advance Sp is still theere and always will be there because of its usefullness and overalll betterness than the DS.

It will probably be in the $300 range. Evidence:

A)Back in the mid-90s, all of the systems (other than the N64) tried to debut with a $500-$600 price tag. All but the PSX flopped as this brought in a massive period of lean sales for games. Since then, console makers have been very hesitant to overprice their systems, sometimes even selling them at a loss (Microsoft).

B) Even with inflation, they probably will not raise the default price (not by much, at least). The Big 3 don`t get their money from console sales, but from game licensing and sales. As a result, they will keep their prices artificially low in order to build a base so developers will want to invest their time into making games for the console, thus bringing more cash to the console. This is how Xbox could survive by selling at a loss.

C) You can buy a good computer for $800+. Few would buy a console for the same price as a computer, which can do much more than play games.

Godamn, how come every time someone posts something about a videogame console I have to start writing all this sh*t, COME ON PPL, if you don`t like it STFU. I think it`s an excellent, cutting-edge console and I will get one this christmas.

its ugly in my opinion. Looks like something macintosh $hit out.
I hate video games in this day and age. Its such a big freaking joke it makes me sick to my stomach.

I can build a better computer then that thing for the same price.

Its just for little kids to go "mommy I want one waaaaaahhhhhh"

You spend a small fortune on these sytems and game just so that in a few years it can be obsolete and everyone can laugh at you and call you a loser for having one.


Lame

First of all bardockjerms, just because gamecube games don`t have all of the blood, sex, crime, and violence that Xbox and PS2 does that is corrupting the worlds youth, doesn`t mean that it`s kiddie. Jeez, Gamecube has probably has some of the best games out to offer. Sure, Halo may have tons of Multiplayer, I would not want to spend hours everyday getting killed by lag and having some Halo nerd go, "0MG I ju$t pwn3d u l0l" everytime one kills you. ---> Oh, we`re terribly sorry about that, but it`s also your fault, maybe this website will suit your likes the most. Listen, ass hole, I remember being 10 yrs old and playing GTA1, Postal, Doom and many more violent games, yet, I never had the urge to grab my shotgun and start shooting ppl in the head. I wonder why? You people make me sick: "Oh, my 36 year old son played a game for ppl older then 40. OMG, I better kill him before

300 dollars was the price when the first xbox came out

I think Microsoft learned not to put a harddrive in it.

"The price of the console has yet to be announced but some speculate it could go on sale in the US for $300 (£162)." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4541961.stm

PS3 looks like it will be better and I got an XBox cos I thought itw ould out last the PS2, now Microsoft are releasing the X360 to get ahead of the PS3 making the Xbox obsolate sooner in the process! Gets.

Second of all, that Xbox 360 is probably going to cost, what? 600 Dollars? I looked at the specs, and those are just WAY too high to cost reasonable. I mean just read it. Every spec. I mean Xbox 360 might cost 1000 Dollars!!

MiligrmSmile, how come you always prove your idiocy? NOTHING has been released about the PS3 except that it use a multicore processor, and have an NVidia graphics chip.

Looked a lot better than the old X-Box design anyway. Kind of like a nice, high end DVD player that you`d buy. The graphics on it/the games should be pretty nice also since they sunk so much $$$ into it...

Still looks nicer than the current consoles. The boring Black PS, the massive chunk of plastic X-box, and the Fisherprice Gamecube.
