    Default Any one owns an Xbox??

    hihi.. any xbox users out there?... I need help... I am contemplating between an xbox or a ps2... ps2 has always been my first choice but lately I am pretty impressed by xbox games... they are much better than when it was juz launched... thats why leaning towards it - xbox (have to forgo WE8 and FF series on PS2.. sob)

    anyone knows where and how much I have to pay to mod an xbox?... and i am pretty confused about the harddisk thingy?... an original xbox has an inbuilt HD?...

    Any one can help me?

    WE8 or Pro Evo Soccer 4 is coming out for Xbox before the end of the year. Check out http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/sports/...w_6106306.html

    The Xbox has an internal harddisk, 8GB. Can be use for game saves and to store music files rip from audio CDs.

    Even if you did... there aren't many bootleg xbox games around. Plus you cannot play Live with it.

    That said... if you do get xbox, check out Halo which is a really fun game... waiting for Halo 2 to be launched.

    Well its definately a touchy subject. Personally I would not want to discuss about modification, firstly I have not much idea on the subject and second I wouldn't do it as it would void warranty and probably get my unit banned when I go Xbox LIVE.

    If you read this article you will know that modding will be illegal by next year.

    So far I'm happy with my green xbox, going LIVE almost everynight with the local Xbox gamers on R63: Black Arrow and other games.

    Heard from Friend's Personal Experience: Not advisable to to modify Xbox Console.


    Microsoft is very smart. Those that have previously modified their boxes cannot play Live... And most of their games have anti-copying encryption that even if you duplicate, they won't work. Its original all the way now for Xbox. Even if you modify and manage to get "live" to work on your machine, who knows in near future, Microsoft may release another new gimmick and that can't work again. You have to stick with Original if its an XBox....

    ya.. me too own an Xbox... the Xbox has a internal HD of 8gb or more.. well i dunno the actual size of it.. but the game's graphics is a 100 times better den a PS2... Ps2 is run on a PC-333 chip, while the Xbox is running on a PC-733 chip... obvious la rite ???

    December the release of StarCraft GHOST, and the recent release of Full Spectrum Warrior and the FIFA 2004.. all the great games !!

    the controller is better den PS2, and it can play DVDs... the Ps2 features the ethernet controller, but u will have to buy the Ethernet Controller. if available in SG, but the Xbox has a inbuilt Ethernet card and all u haf to do is to get Starhub's Maxonline, get a live kit which cost $88.. and u are all out shooting pple down~~

    Xbox is

    trust me... i am a happy Xbox user..... =)

    The reason why no much bootleg games is because you can copy the game directly to your xbox hard disk. Which means just buy one can share with all your friends. that's why no point bring in to sell. Yes, it includes original games too. and also you can upgrade the hard disk too.

    Xbox games don't really have many good games but it allows you to play multi-player easily. However, unless you're playing with local players, it tends to lag quite a fair bit for fast place games which can be quite fustrating.

    My advice is to play try the set first at your friend's place to see if you really like it or not...btw PS 2 rocks!!! ha....

    hi all... ya.. i foresee lots of great games coming out on the xbox console...
    Lots of ppl selling xbox as a result of either new sign ups or extention of contracts with starhub maxonline... most importantly their prices are much lower than retail pxs....

    one thing i do not get it.... what do you mean by copying games onto the HD of the console?.. you mean now we can d/l the sw onto our pc and copy it over?... and still able to play?... that's another form of piracy too is'nt it?.. :P
