More like overshadowed by the behemoth the ps2 was still a good system halo always fun.

Rush2680d ago

Yeah I remember the good old original Xbox days, not everyone hated the system because it sat quite peacefully way behind the Playstation.

I hope the next Xbox doesn't get hated on nearly as much as the 360.

muzzy2680d ago

I heard it was very reliable. Why hate a good piece of hardware?

Rush2680d ago

Yeah I guess not the 360 slim is reliable all the 360 hate has stopped.

Sadly 95 percent of n4g didn't get the memo.

muzzy2680d ago

@rush: How do you know X360 S is reliable? Because Microsoft said so? I don't believe a word they say. We'll see in 2 years time how reliable it is.

Rush2680d ago

Ok fine for the next 2 years we shall continue in blissful ignorance pretending reliability is the soul reason the 360 gets hated on.

Thanks for the info muzzy.

Sarcasm2680d ago

The original Xbox was such a good console. It had awesome graphics for its time, full of features, and it was reliable.

The 360 is a POS in comparison.

I loved many XBOX gems like Otogi 1 and 2, Stranger's Wrath, JSRF, and Phantom Dust.

baodeus2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

ah phantom dust. Best game I ever played (still playing it on the x360 thanks to BC). Wish they make a sequal one on the new console (pipe dream since it is not gonna happen). Dam you MS. They do make good new IPs, just many of them got over looked and shadow out by PS2.

Actually the original xbox is still up and running. It is a tank.

Call_me_Ishmael2681d ago

even though i did not own an xbox,i wish you happy

awiseman2681d ago

Is the reason that console survived.

Shackdaddy8362680d ago

It was actually a pretty good console back then. Now what they turned it into sucks.
