X-Box 360
I was wondering that if you bought it, can you play regular x-box games too?

Most of them anyhow. I hear there are issues with a few. I just bought a new PC, so I get 360 level graphics on a lot of games now anyhow.

Bring on PS3!!!

To be able to play Xbox games you need to make sure that you pick up the Xbox360 Premium Bundle which comes with the hard drive necessary to emulate the original Xbox games.

I'm waiting until PS3 comes out, then I'll pick the better system. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be PS3, but there isn't any rush.

ps3 is gay. go 360. nd you need the hard drive 2 play xbox games but not all are backwards compatible. you can find the list online. premium is a way better deal because it has:
xbox360-299.99
hard drive-99.99
xbox live headset-29.99
xbox media remote-29.99
ethernet cable-9.99 to 19.99
WIRELESS controller-50.00 (10 more than wired)
And some other c**p so you're saving about 100 bucks on it if you buy the premium.

you're welcome biznitches
                   YOUR FRIEND 77MiKe77

P.s. Get revolution!!!!

If by that you mean it's supposed to have 3 or 4 times the graphics resolution and visuals, then yes...yes it is. XBOX 360 looks like nothing more then a gaming PC. I can do that now without the XBOX.

I want Pixar quality visuals.

Bah... PS3 will toast X-Box 360. Sony always puts out superior systems.

That's what people thought about Sega until they brought out the Mega CD, or and the Saturn.

Besides Playstation 2 graphics looked no different to the original Playstation only it loaded it faster, where at least with the X box you could tell Microsoft took it one step forward in the graphics department.

the main problem with these game systems is that the only way to upgrade is to buy the newer game system!

If you want the best deal on the XBO360, goto SAM's or COSCTO. I got the the Xbox360, harddrive, xbox live headset, xbox media remote, 2 wireless controllers, HDTV cables, battery pack with a recharger, and a game for $470.

you all say ps3 is better than xbox 360 but microsoft even admitted that the first 360 games would not be using nearly as much power as the 360 is capable of. and yes I did see the mgs4 trailer and it does look good but I dont give a cr*p because mgs games suck anyway. and sony doesnt always have superior products because xbox beat ps2 in:
1.)graphics
2.)controller(fps where way better on xbox)
3.)online play
4)games(HALO!!!!)
5.)system look(not counting slim)

the only thing ps2 did better is they had final fantasy X (the best by far)so as you see I would not pay $700 or more for something that I could see if I watched a movie in hd. and another thing is that xbox 360 is more powerful than any computer on the market so computer gaming is now DEAD. anyway I probaly will get ps3 somewhere along the line but 360 nd revolution comes first.still waitin 4 my 360 but it'll be here in a week or so. respond and tell me if you agree or even disagree.

Mike, but PS2 had GTA III - San Andreas first (yes, before the PC games and X-Box games).
