"The Xbox has earned a respectable place in the market"4.5 starson by jgzeidan
Pros: Fantastic Xbox Live online service; Multimedia features; powerful; phenominal visuals; appealing technology; great game lineup;
Cons: Bulky design; may come off as too complex; games may not appeal to gamers under thirteen.
Summary: Microsoft's first console; ironically, is phenominal. Not only does it have fantastic home theater-like capability, but it's Xbox Live service is very sophisticated. It is also the most powerful piece of gaming hardware you could buy. It's games are fun and plentiful, but many of those titles are a bit violent, meaning the machine would not appeal to a young gamer. Even though the Xbox's market timing lost its chance of competing with Sony's Playstation 2, there is no doubt that the Xbox is the most sophisticated gaming console to date, and should materialize it's own little space in your living room.
