Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Remember The Xbox. The Console That Started It All.

 

With the reveal of Microsoft's Next Generation console less than a month away, I thought it's time the Xbox community started to celebrate, and I thought what better way to start than to take a look at the console that started it all.

The Xbox.

Big but lovely! 

 

Xbox Controller.

Xbox controller with the later released Japanese Xbox controller also later bought to America as Xbox Controller S.

I loved it as well.



^^^ No way! The original Xbox controller was an ugly wildebeest of a controller. The S / 360 controller design is far superior in every way imaginable, unless you've got gorilla hands.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

Been great consoles so far> Ive been happy with the Xbox 1 and 2 so hopefully ill be happy about Xbox 3 as well.

Also I want to mention I dont like the original controller that much haha  X360 controller is perfect though.  Well the d-pad needs an upgrade but besides that the perfect controller imo

Only 21 more days until we get to see the next Xbox in action!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was a GC/PS2 gamer during the 6th gen but eventually picked up an Xbox with 4 games at a garge sale in 09 for like $40. Two of those games were really good(Halo & Ninja Gaiden) and the other two were decent(Oddworld & Brute Force). Sadly I sold it on ebay after a few months to help pay for a Wii. If the $99 360 rumor is true I eill prolly get it and hopefully play some of the great Xbox games I never had a chance to play.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Man my younger brother and I traded in our PS2 and some games just for Halo at launch. Played co-op for hours every night. I also loved PGR and NFL Fever, even though in retrospect, Fever was terrible.

Xbox library had some amazing gems. Armed and Dangerous, Rallisport Challenge 2, Links 2004 just to name a few.

I traded a PS2 and several games for an Xbox also. Eventually I got a PS2 back tho. That Xbox was a beast with its components. Graphics were so much better. I'm glad MS continued to stay in the gaming business. Without it, this generation would have been boring.

The 360 cntroller as others have said was my favorite, I just liked that fat thing.

 

Hopefully is rumours are true the next controller will be just an improved version of the 360.
