    Why is there a HUGE lack of HDTV & Custom Sndtrk. Support for XBOX?

    Interesting point, James. I agree that higher the resolution, there's always a compromise in a fixed hardware platforms such as game consoles because it requires more memory bandwidth as well as more memory quanity. And current XBOX's 64MB of total memory with bandwidth of 6.4GB/s is far...

    Could anyone tell me what's wrong with my XBOX ??

    I very much doubt your XBOXs are faulty. If your displays are fine, then, I think it is the ground loop problem. If you haven't tried to isolate ground loop issues, give it a try. If this doesn't fix the problem, it is most likely James's, and Bob's TV have faults. You could try another...

    True & False about XBOX Live ?

    XBOX Live, and region seems to be very confusing. I'm based in London, UK. And I have a US XBOX which is not modded. It is a plain US NTSC machine. Please let me know if there're any false in the points below. #1. XBOX Live Starter Kit has regions. - So if you have US XBOX, and buy a...

    X-Box or Gamecube...

    I'd definately recommend both GameCube, and XBOX. If you like console gaming, you should buy both of them. XBOX has fantastic games that won't be on GameCube such as HALO, JSRF, DOA3/volleyball...etc GameCube has well-known classic titles such as Mario, Zelda, Metroid...etc At the end of...

    XBOX scratches discs ??

    Hi, folks. I think I have noticed circular scratchs on my game disks. I cannot see them in normal light, but when I shine a torch or a light on it, I see large and small circles on my discs. I've heard that those circles are not scraches caused by XBOX, but they're marks from...

    What should I buy next?

    yeah, JSRF is a stunner. cel-shading beauty. :D But I don't think this game has much of a replay value. I got tired of it after about 4~5 days. I still think this game worth every penny for graphics/style and unique game-play.

    Jet Set Radio Future

    gents, does anyone know how to get to the main title screen after you play JSRF ?? :confused: (not the dash-board of XBOX, but the title screen of JSRF.) pad-reset wouldn't work with JSRF, and it doesn't have any menu to go to title screen either.

    2 questions about RESOLUTION.

    Hi, folks. For instance, a game called Virtua Striker3 on GameCube, it has an option to select screen aspect ratio. - 16x9 wide or 4x3 normal. And yes it does support 480p progressive. And DOA3 and Gunvalkyrie on XBOX supports 480p as well as 16x9 widescreen aspect ratio. My questions...
