  • To the xbox 3shity guy,

    that stuff is only test items that never made it to market because they tested it and people didn't like it, atleast they actually ask people's opinions first unlike sony. And NOBODY would want to buy any of sony's failed marketing attempts, think ANIME.

  • You guys need to learn your design concepts in order to understand M$'s marketing tactics. Don't critique if you don't know what you're talking about...

    The bright green is loud and grabs the attention of M$'s initial demographic, little ADD endowed children with zero level attention spans. The original XBOX targeted that demographic completely with the gaudy case design that looked more like the "Gates of Mordor" than an actual game console case.

    X360 on the other hand took a step toward sophistication in marketing and identity design. The idea behind the sphere symbolizes the intrinsic inter-connecting of the world through networking, and the X says that the xbox360 will be the link for people across the world in a higher quality level that the first XBL system could not reach in it's present incarnation.

    And "360" denotes an about-face on many fronts of design for M$:

    *Technology
    *Design
    *Usability
    *Functionality
    *Networking

    Now look past the obvious hardware issues the xbox360 has had since launch, to some of the ideas that the xbox team has come up with for this extremely ambitious system:

    *Extremely easy to use GUI design
    *New friend system
    *Intelligent integration of new technologies
    *Wireless controllers

    These ideas may not be *revolutionary* but they are definite upgrades from the last xbox system, which was clunky at best.

    Let's look at the new font for the identity, its sharp, crisp lines and smooth curves give a feeling of sophistication and youth. The new font targets the old ADD children demographic, while increasing its target to the hardcore, and design sensible users.

    I'm not a fanboy of M$, I play most any system I get my hands on. I just thought that someone who knows something about design should evaluate the latest AD Campaign put together by the "evil empire" for its lastest "Spawn."

    I hate praising M$ because I despise the company's business practices as a whole, but the XB team did a fantastic job on this new systems marketing campaign. I'm afraid, however, the pressing and frequent software and hardware issues with the recent launch systems that are occuring now, are going to ruin any chance M$ thought they had at gaining any decent market share on Sony or Nintendo.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:22 PM  

  • the harware issues your reading about are nothing new, and will have no long turn impact on what happens this generation. ps2 had a dvd issue that to this day still has not been resolved, though it has improved, but not been fixed. sony will probably win this round, but not because of a few 360 issues. It'll be because soooooooo many people will fall for the same old sony bullshit, and believe and picture they see of a ps3 game as being exactly what it will look like. sonys' saying the exact same shit they said before the ps2 launched and nothing they said came true. nothing!!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:44 PM  

  • LOL , yea remember the pure bullshit that sony put out about the emotion engine. Movie like graphics , you wont be able to tell the difference , real wind and physics effects and other shit that was pure crap. Then the launch came and the crap games with it. Don't get me wrong I like and own all consoles , there are truly awesome games on all of them. I just wont believe anything about the PS3 until I see it playing real games , not CGI bullshit or even real-time generated scripted scenes. I want to see gameplay , until then 360 is king!

    PS: I play xbox 80% of the time, PS2 15% , cube 5%

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:28 PM  

  • Id say we get a ps3 and a xbox 360 and throw them at eachother and see who wins!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:30 PM  

  • How can anyone believe that Xbox is the console? The answer: they don't. All of you die-hard fans are probably uniformly bobbing your heads in approval of one another, while feeling supported and encouraged by your peers to say any shit that might gain you acceptance amongst them. All of you are just a bunch of sad creatures huddled together on the common notion that Xbox is great, but that idea quickly turned into a radical one that "Xbox is the greatest ever!". Sure, I can understand some odd people being addicted to Halo for some reason, but that game alone definitely does not warrant the purchase of an Xbox. Besides Halo, there is truely nothing original, spectacular, or addicting on that failed console. Some of you people are calling PS3 shitty when there is a good amount of original, spectacular,and addicting games. Seeing as no one has really said much about Nintendo, I feel it my duty to do so. Firstly, don't call it "kiddie", because that's just a failed and shitty attempt at being funny, cool, and original. Nintendo, unlike Xbox, actually has multiple icons (Link, Mario, Fox, DK, Pikachu, Samus ect.), and shockingly each one of these icons has magnificent games (especially when combined in a fighting game). These figureheads even symbolize the entire gaming industry! There is nothing to be said about a lack of quality, original, and immensely addicting games on the part of Nintendo. And if you kiddies remember, Xbox was being touted as a powerhouse of graphics (just like the 360). However, now that this generation is nearly over I think most will agree that Gamecube's RE4 had some of the best graphics. Even though Gamecube is supposed to be almost half as powerful as Xbox (that's the truth) Hopefully I just shattered any self-respect that was present in your pre-teen bodies. So to you (you know who you are) I say, "Too-da-loo."

    For some reason? Yeah douche-bag, there weren't quite enough androgenous anime card battles on that "failed" console.

    LOL So sad to see Sony fanboys cry!

    Can't you just appreciate the entire gaming culture? So lame.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 11:20 PM  

  • hey the only reason why the first post is a hater is cus his mom wouldn't wait inline for him because he was to BIZZY playin wit himself and crying when his mom couldn't get one for him and another thing the reason why xbox main color is green is because they just dont use a black dull main menu if its a main menu at all, they want a unique color just like how all the other motocross companies have their own colors its cus they want to be known and unique unlike ps2 and the online capability for xbox and xbox 360 is way better than ps2 is. so just go play wit ur self some more and don't hate the playa's ahte the game that u ain't winning in man so get a life and stop living in your moms basement lol

    and for those haters i got a life and its good unlike urs cus u getting mad at ur own game lol


    o and also the PS2 is a computer also dip's it can have a hdd its got a MB and the rest of the stuff a pc has so quit saying xbox is a heap of crap. Let go of ur rooster head there man and see what its got to offer and see h ow cooler it is yea ps2 has a grip more games than bxox has well dUUUUUHHH its been out way longer than xbox has so just shutup or put up lazy bunch of haters lol.

    im not hating on ps2 or anyhting in that matter its just that i hate peple say that xbox is just a pc yea its better than 80% of pc's out their the xbox and xbox 360 are way better than pc's out there. the 360 is awesome yea its got issues well there's time to make fixs its not the first time something has happened to new stuff man. then for once and all the xbox xbox 360 are way cheaer than the best pc's out there and perform better at a 1/4 of the price of a top dollar pc right now. and u can't get the 512 mb vid thing yet so quit hating its better their using businnes skills and techniques and also giving the consumer a great deal on a great next-gen gaming console.

  • Since the hype of X360 issues I can say this. The media is more involved in console releases than they ever were before because gaming has become a top dollar economic sucess as of late. So that being said any faults in the system are going to be advertised 10 times as much as faults with a system 6 years old.

    I have a friend that has replaced his PS2 5 times. 5 times since launch in the US. All due to bugs that were never fixed. With Microsoft I really doubt that they would allow any issues such as this to hinder their success with the 360. They have enough cash to repair any issues that may crop up. The X360 isn't that hard to replace parts for making for easy replacement of the DVD drive. What I really don't understand is why people think they can stick a game system with a 3 core processor cpu and advanced graphics chip in an entertainment center and then cover it up with the usually cable mess and expect it to function properly. So what if the power supply uses 160 watts. Most advanced personal computers use way more than 203 watts at max. Especially with the advent of 350-400watt power supplies. On top of that graphics chips are suppose are going to produce artifacts if they overheat. Seriously. If you don't know what you are investing your money in, don't buy it. Don't complain during a consoles inital release period if there are bugs unless you are willing to report them to help the console grow past its initial release. There are going to be issues. Beta testing can only reveal so much. The X360 marketing team just needs to work on making sure the consoles game release dates are solid for the next few months. Find a replacement DVD drive and come up with a replacement strategy for the X360's that have already been shipped. I really do not belive that they have anythng to worry about as long as they keep track of consumer interest in the X360 and release more XLive! Content before it stagnates. I think they have had more than enough time to plan content for the Marketplace. Thats my 2 cents.

  • xbox vs ps2 again?

    fine

    ive got both, and honestly i havent turned my ps2 on in about 6 months or so. why not? simple...with my xbox i can stream video over my network from any computer in the house, watch internet tv stations and play radio on my tv, i have 43 games...never paid for any of them. and thats not including the nes games that i play thru the emulator.

    even without a modchip to unlock the xboxs full potential in my humble opinion xbox still blows ps2 outta the water. just as the 360 will dominate the ps3.

    xbox from the local pawnshop - $75
    x3 modchip - $50
    the shock on a ps2 fanboys face when you show them what a real console can do - priceless

    The xbox isn't *actually* a Console... it's a PC in a box, packaged to be a console. Your "real" console is a PC, you're effectively saying that "the shock on a ps2 fanboy's face when you show them what a *PC* can do"...is priceless. So do you think PC's are better than consoles? Or are you too complacent to get your sentences straight?

    Oh, and a "mod chip" doesn't automagically make a system a console. It merely bypasses the existing BIOS allowing you to take full direct control over the hardware your purchased. This technique has been used for years in standard computer science on PCs to build open source software for closed source hardware, especially in the server market...until companies like Dell and HP finally got with the program and started building for accepted hardware standards.

    I could care less either way. But fanboys for any fucking console piss me off. Every system has it's demographic. If you are a part of M$'s Demographic, then that's cool, however if you fall in Sony's or Nintendo's Demographic then that's cool too, just don't try to peddle your opinion on people who obviously are just as inept as yourself. It will only breed fanboy wars which get tiresome very -very- quickly.

  • First of all, I WANT THAT Xbox Live Beta KIT lol

    second off, STFU all you fanboys, PS3 is not here yet so i hold judgement on what it can do untill i see it running in my hands, The 360 has bugs fair enough atleast microsoft are fixing them, Unlike sony (wait DVD drive wasnt it) whos problems still show at the CURRENT "REVISED" slimline console, xbox has had 6-7 revisions since release and they seem to have fixed the majority of problems which where wrong at launch.

    Come on guys stop bickering and just play you consoles, Sony people will like PS3 (when its released eventually) and xbox/PC fans will mostly like 360, unless sony gets it act together with the online side of games they WILL fall behind because there is no excuse now not allow a LIVE type service since 97% of house in UK (and other places) have Broadband access.

    I am no fan of ether console i still play my Gamecube because it is fun, xbox for LIVE and Ps2 (but not in past 5 months) because of GT4. I will probs have PS3 and 360 consoles, not too sure about Revolution tho.... have to what and see.

It's good that there IS competition, competition means the need to advance. I'm a xb(/360) guy but you don't see me hating... heck I will definitely check out the ps3, just to see where the future will be going. fact is: xb360 is here first and that rocks, and it'll hurt sony. But, Sony takes its time to give us something nice as well! that said, I have just one more thing to say:

  • Here comes my comment a second time around, because frankly I didn't post this monster of a paragraph just to get 1 lame remark that accomplished nothing. And if you actually read this whole thing then your an awesome person.:

    How can anyone believe that Xbox is the best console? The answer: they don't. All of you die-hard fans are probably uniformly bobbing your heads in approval of one another, while feeling supported and encouraged by your peers to say any shit that might gain you acceptance amongst them. All of you are just a bunch of sad creatures huddled together on the common notion that Xbox is great, but that idea quickly turned into a radical one that "Xbox is the greatest ever!". Sure, I can understand some odd people being addicted to Halo, but that game alone definitely does not warrant the purchase of an Xbox. Besides Halo, there is truely nothing original, spectacular, or addicting on that failed (damn right) console. Some of you people are calling PS3 shitty when there is a good amount of original, spectacular,and addicting games. Seeing as no one has really said much about Nintendo, I feel it my duty to do so.

However, now that this generation is nearly over I think most will agree that Gamecube's RE4 had some of the best graphics. Even though Gamecube is supposed to be almost half as powerful as Xbox (that's the truth). Moreover, just because the Xbox 360 is the only next-gen console out right now doesn't mean anything. If someone buys a console just because it's the first one out, then they shouldn't buy a console at all. Your remarks about how Nintendo and Sony fans are just jealous because their consoles aren't out yet, are just plain dumb. If someone truly wanted the saturated Xbox 360 then they would buy one (and then hopefully regret wasting money on an unoriginal jumble of wires). Xbox is also glitchy. Anyone recall the power cord that was deemed a "fire-hazard"? Anyway, most of these glitches mentioned don't even affect gameplay. Hopefully I just shattered any self-respect that was present in your pre-teen bodies. So to you (you know who you are) I say, "Too-da-loo."
