Title: XBOX2
Post by: benthehutt on February 17, 2005, 04:48:21 PM
I'll try to contain my exitement, but if there's one thing Microsoft has done right, it's the XBOX.  Now, the XBOX2 is supposed to blow it away..

Apparently, some schematics got loose on some private forum and the neXt Box designs got out.  Here they are: (in words, not pics)

3-core 3.4Ghz IBM G-5 class processor
ATI 128M Radeon
256 Megs RAM

Bad news though, it won't have a hard drive...(*swoon*)

I guess Microsoft wanted to mess w/something other than a PC(like the first XBOX).  Anyway, that's all the news I gots.

Okay well to start with, the solid rumours that i have been hearing around, that there will be 3 types of XBox 2 when it hits the shelf.

One with no HDD (to keep cost down)
Second one will have a HDD and will be preloaded with Halo 2.5
Third will be the PC version they have been talking about for yonks.

I am not really getting too jazzed about the XBox hardware, because Sony is going to blow it out of the water with the new Cell chip.

HOWEVER! Xbox does have the new XNA Technology which is probably the reason i will be swinging more towards buying the Xbox 2 over the PS3.

Time will tell.

I think Ill just stick with my SNES with Super Mario Cart at home!!
  Yeah I heard the same thing with the 3 different types of xbox available!
The PC version is to have a Gigabit LAN card in it which wouldnt be too bad although you dont see much delay in LAN games now.
 But this could be interesting with sharing "files"

I think the Xbox is defninitely the most progressive of the next gen consoles. The new xbox is the closest thing to being an all in one inclusive box, so like eventually instead of buying a pc, dvd player, sound system AND xbox, we could concievably just buy the xbox and it could do everything. I like that idea :D

I usually side with the XBox on everything, though this time I don't think it's the Xbox that's the most progressive.  (Though, you're entitled to your own opinion)  PS3 is definitely moreso--they're employing an entire new type of chip.  One that has never been programmed for or used in anything.  The Xbox is no new technologies (Exceot for the ATI video core) its just a freaking behemoth (which is freaking awesome).  I like the idea of using my Xbox for a desktop computer, though...

And as far as the Nintendo revolution, come on!  The entire point of that is to be progressive--have you seen that controller?  I think I may buy one just cause Nintendo always leads the way in groundbreaking gaming--well, except for the Gamecube (God rest it's poor soul).

The XBOX 360 is NOT a pc--you couldn't be more wrong!  It's pure powerpc.
