The microsoft X-box console seems to be my best pick of video console systems yet!
The System has a 8GB HD built in, is compatible with HDTV, includes a DVD Player all in one (with a remote control optional).
The X-box functions as a desktop player as a video game console, emulators were built in retail style (for instance Sega Megadrive emulation officially by sega with microsoft).
The console was hacked during the years which took off every limit possible for the console, which makes it interesting if you see the different mods made for the system's games.
A 2nd ver of the controller was released due to inergonomic controller play durint it's 2nd year. the S Controller, which became very popular and very comfortable for players.
The X-box has a broadband adapter built in, which connects directly to a router or a computer which creates it extremely easy to play multiplayer games online.
Microsoft created a special net of gaming called xbox Live! which brings gamers together through the internet, the downside is that registration involves a financial fee that differs from time to time, but yet... there is a price.
I've spent many hours with this video console, and after having a long list of different consoles that includes the previous consoles and the current video console contestants (Ps2, Gamecube), i can clearly state this one takes the gold medal, it's affected me in ways no other console had up till today, realistic 3d animation, lifelike video streams, this is the machine to go with. make sure you take this up with your friends, show off that you've gotten the Microsoft X-box!
A++ for gamers!
