I must say, I'm a little bit frustrated. I was a little reluctant to buy a console at all, but when both the PS2 and the Xbox dropped to $299CDN, I couldn't help but pick one up. I decided to go Xbox simply because of the beefier hardware. I'v regretted it since because their have been so many great titles released in the last 18 months for the PS2, but I'v always kept a close eye on the upcoming Xbox release list because it to will have some great titles arriving soon (SegaGT 2K2 for example). But the other day I went to play a demo disc in my Xbox and I got the typical error declaring that the disc is either not a game, DVD, or audio disc or is scratched. No biggie... I popped in an Evangelion DVD. Didn't work. Dropped in the Friday DVD. Didn't work. Dropped in my most scratched AudioCD... it worked. Once. So now I'm stuck with an Xbox that won't play game, movie, or audio discs. It is only 3 months old and I'v logged less than 20 hours of playing time on it. Thank goodness I bought the service plan at work on it. Has anybody else suffered any problems with their Xboxs? We get a lot of them returned at work and even 2 of our demo units have died the same fate mine has.
