Well considering you can play (Improved Versions) of OG and 360 games on the One makes this debate kind of pointless.

You can play Wii games on the Wii U as well, yet a lot of folks would consider the Wii to be the superior system.

One could argue that the older system was better in its time or had a better original/exclusive lineup.

WiiU was a superior system to the Wii. Same with the OGXbox and XB1. Its like comparing an GTX780 to a GTX1080, they do the same things but one will do it better.

Again, not everyone would agree.

I'd rate the Wii way above Wii U; because I keep all my hardware making backwards compatibility worthless to me, and I rate a system based on how good an experience I had with it during its life.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Just by having achievements the X1 is better then the original X Box. But it also has a better controller, better first and third party game lineup games in all genres, better UI, better looking hardware especially the S and X model. Better online and media capabilities even though it used DVD's for its games the orginal Xbox didn't even let you play DVD movies on it without buying the remote for it. If the original XBox would have had better third party support it might would have been closer but the PS 2 had way better third party support. With zero JRPG's even the Gamecube had better third party support since it had Skies of Arcadia and Tales of Symphonia plus it got Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil Zero and a great remake of the first Resident Evil game. Plus its has a great enhanced version of Metal Gear Solid.

Did you forget Phantom Dust and Shin Megami Tensei Nine exist? Innocent Tears. Phantasy Star Online. Metal Dungeon. Blackstone.

Also hard to count RE against Xbox when Nintendo paid for them to be exclusive.

Those games exist but they are so obscure its like they almost didn't exist most orginal Xbox owners owned one of those games or even know they existed.  Skies of Arcadia and Tales of Symphonia actually sold a decent amount and pretty much everyone that owns a GameCube knows those two games.

Fair enough, if you are going by your personal experience than sure. I am just basing this off the hardware and software situation. The WiiU could do everything the Wii did and more, same how the XB1 can do everything the OG Xbox could do and more, just like how a GTX2080 can do everything a GTX1080 can do and more. If the XB1 and WiiU weren't backwards compatibly than i might argue for there sake but considering they are, they are the same system with one being capable of a lot more.

I get where you're coming from, fair enough. Being able to play old games doesn't necessarily count for much depending on the individual is all I meant, some folks keep their old hardware to play its games or just aren't interested in playing old games.

I mean, for me the original Xbox is better cos I played games like Halo 1 & 2, Star Wars Battlefront, and Panzer Dragoon Orta on it. Theoretically I could play those on an Xbox One as well, but (a) why would I when I still have my original Xbox, and (b) if I'm buying a new system I'm only interested in what NEW games it brings to the table. Playing a game once it's old can never measure up to the excitement of playing it when its fresh and new.

You're moving the goal post. You said Zero. I corrected you and SOA flopped hard on Gamecube.

OG Xbox. It was at least an interesting console with an exclusive Shin Megami Tensei game. Otogi games. Panzer Dragoon Orta. Jet Set Radio Future and Shenmue II. I struggle to think of anyting really unique on XBO.

At least you should have mentioned Crazy Taxi 3 that is actually the best Sega exclusive on the original X Box especially since it also included the first two games of the series and they played and looked better then the Dreamcast versions of the games.

True, some like the nostalgia of playing it the way it was at launched.

Just for arguments sake, not only can you play those same games you mentioned on the XB1, you will get quality of life improvements to them like VSync and Anisotropic filtering and possibly less slow downs and sharper visuals making the games a lot more polished and on top of that, you can play the new games like Halo 2 Anniversary and the new Battlefront games while also having access to a better version of the older games as well. If someone ask what console to buy, a Wii or WiiU and a OG Xbox or XB1, id tell them to get the WiiU and the XB1 as they are the same systems with only more options.

I play my PC all the time, sometimes i load up games made in 2010 and sometimes ill play something brand new. Having that option is incredible.

I own a copy of SOA on the GameCube so I didn't flop that hard I own none of the original X Box games you mentioned and the only ones I heard of before you mentioned them where Phantom Dust and Phantasy Star Online.

I do like to sometimes revisit past titles for old times sake, (hence why I hang onto my old consoles) but for me a system's value is in what fresh, original content it offers. What new experiences it can give me that I haven't had before.
