Product Features Original Xbox Console by Microsoft
Best machine Microsoft has ever made I have the very first build of the Xbox, and let me just say that after YEARS of playing it (we preordered it), with hundreds upon hundreds, maybe around 1500 different save files, the damn thing STILL has… you guessed it, “50,000+ Blocks”, and is still kickin. I strongly recommend modding it with a media center hack, and turning it into your personal entertainment system for classic games, regular DVDs, and music. Great thing. I freakin wish that Microsoft hadn’t been its creator, they are such cheap bastards, and original Xbox live doesn’t work anymore, but still a good piece of gaming history. Greatest Xbox original games of all time, that I’ve played:
A great system The original Xbox was (and though a bit dated, still is) a great video game console. Released in November 2001, the Xbox allowed you to play games (including Popular titles such as Halo: Combat Evolved, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and even the recently released Madden NFL 09), watch DVD’s (although you must first purchase an inexpensive Xbox DVD remote), and play and rip tracks from CD’s (which can even be used as custom, in-game tracks with some Xbox games). Other features include a built-in hard drive (which has plenty of room for game saves, downloaded Xbox content, and music), four controller ports, and Xbox LIVE (an online gaming service allowing subscribers to play Xbox games online with other subscribers around the world and download new content for their games to the system’s hard drive). If your looking for a gaming system that will keep you entertained for a good while, but you can’t afford a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, you should give the original Xbox a try.
It’s the Box. Early on in your trying out of an Xbox game console, you may wonder if it’s really worth bothering with. The Xbox Live functions- which don’t exist anymore, thank you very much Microsoft- were clunky and slow, especially compared to those of the 360. The first controller was an oversized mistake, and had that controller stayed as the standard this review would certainly be different. The controllers are almost exclusively wired, if that disappoints anybody, and the graphics are far behind what consoles can do today. On top of it all, too many people don’t even seem to know there *was* an Xbox. I keep hearing “Xbox”, then ask for clarification and find the person really meant the 360.
