  1. The Original Xbox. The Best Console Ever

    Some of you might not know this but the Original Xbox is the best console ever!

    Why? Well, it only does and plays everything.

    I mean, here's what it's capable of:

    Play Xbox games, check Play any other games before its generation, check Linux compatibility, check Media Center, check Internet, check Play DVDs, check HD, drumroll please... CHECK!

    Yes, you heard that right! The Original Xbox is perfectly capable of running things in HD! You just need the right cable and boom! HD!

    It's like a PS3. But a million times better because it's just so freaking simple!

    Of course I'm talking about hacked Xboxes here but the versatility of the system is so incredible, that it's just like a PC!

    So until PS3 hacks scene can actually match Xbox's scene (doubt it will be soon) , Xbox will still be the best console that has ever existed!

    P.S.: Also, there's been some discussions on whether or not it can run ps2 games. It's currently impossible, but the talk IS THERE!

    I should probably mod my old xbox one day, it's in fantastic condition even after all this time.

    Though this thread is a tad silly, comparing the vita to the xbox? Now I love the xbox but come on...vita fits in mah pocket yo.

    A matter of preference, but I'd hate the fact that I had to buy a huge ass extension cable to use it wherever I go (including a portable screen).

    As a portable console aka handheld the Vita sure has much to offer and is quite handy to that. It is NOT region locked so you can play whatever you freakin want and it lasts for 3-5 hours without wiring it up to the next power supply.

    Aside from that and looking at the PSN store there are many, many many new and old games you can play on the Vita and even more on the PS3 and PS2 (especially in the US). I'd go as far as to say "the Xbox absolutely falls flat in terms of games compared to the old PS2 and PSone possibilities".

    Comparing an old console to a handheld is absolutely off anyways. ^^'''

    oh and according to rumors (not that I give much about those) ShenmueIⅈ is currently in HD collection status and might be released this year. Hope it's true but even if not I sure won't miss it since there's Yakuza/RyuGaGotoku.

    I feel old now guys... Best ones are still Sega Mega Drive, NES and SNES. No Console did have that flair again, it was just plain awesome. The Games as well! Dune II, Sonic, Super Mario World, Mario Kart...

    Edit: Woah, i forgot Secret of Mana, shame on me!

    And as people are discussing handhelds... Gameboy with Pokemon Red/Blue > any handheld.

    @DarkChaplain Marry me? :) Normal reaction to Sega is "uh, couldn't afford a playstation, eh?"...

    @DarkChaplain Thats why i mentioned those 2 original versions, the rest was just made for money. Nothing bad about that, but it was more like selling some guy the same thing twice. Not enough innovation in the rest of this series.

  8. #188762012-03-20 22:26:54Cideomni said:

    @DarkChaplain I looked it up. The are Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Firered, Leafgreen, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heartgold, Soulsilver, Black, White, Black 2, White 2. And thats just the standartgames, not to mention the spin-offs like cardgames, pinball, pokemon-photography-thing and the likes.

    @DarkChaplain Yup. The remake of some older Zelda-Games just went through my Mind then. Minor/no changes at all, just reworked graphics. Sold for the same money as ACTUAL new games.

    @DarkChaplain So, back we are at me mumbling about the good old times. Thou it wasn't as much innovative either, Super Mario World for example was just a great game. Still Mario, still 2D, but nevertheless a really good game. A Link to the Past is somehow a recycled version of the original Zelda as well - who cares, best Zelda of all times. So regarding that, i would say Nintendo CAN create awesome games. If they want. But they don't seem to want for some time now.

    @DarkChaplain Agree. They either should go back to producing some decent stuff or... well, die in a fire or something like that. This whole Wii-Stuff is completely not my thing, except for the videos of people throwing their controllers into their screen while virtual-bowling.
