    Xbox would be the Highend video game system if there was one. It does everything great video games in dolby digital, dvds in DTS and Dolby also plays CD great. Progressive scan 8GB hard drive the ist goes on. Does it get any better than this?!

    It's all about the games.
    I like all three systems for their own reasons.
    (I still play NES games on my Dreamcast, so newer isn't always better for me!)

    The X-Box is the best based on specs (though there are some things the GameCube does better), but unlike DVD players and receivers it only plays games made for it, so you miss out on games for PlayStation 2, GameCube, and every other console that ever came out.

    The exclusive games that each of the other consoles have to offer make it so that the Xbox isn't the best system that I own. They're all equally enjoyed in my home.

    No system can compete plain and simple.

    I own all 3.

    GC-I love my cube, but the reality is i will only buy certain titles. ie-zelda,metroid,mario.

    PS2-Probably enjoys the most of my console time. Nice selection of games.

    xbox-supports higher resolution with its games much better than ps2 does, and a bit better than the cube. if ps2 had all the great options this system had, i probably would get rid of my xbox. only game i really play is splinter cell. hopefully with the aquisition of Rare, more quality games will be coming out.

    then there is my PC. ahhh. no system can ever touch it. nothing beats a good old objective match on MOHAA or some threewave CTF in q3a.

    I just looked at the screenshots and it can't compare graphics-wise. I'll take your word for it on the gameplay side, though IGN states it's much easier on the PS2 & GC.

    All you havee to do is look at the facts. I not going to sit here and name them all out because we all know them. Just in harware the Xbox does more than any other current game platform can do (besides a computer). Sorry this is FACT [rant]no other system has the capablities of the XBOX[/rant] plain and simple

    But does the X-Box have a handle? Nope.

    I think a mod should move this to the IGN boards.
