A great system, July 3, 2009

This review is from: Microsoft Xbox – Video Game Console (Console)

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.

A Perfect Time To Buy An Xbox, August 4, 2009

This review is from: Microsoft Xbox – Video Game Console (Console)

This system is perfect if your young teens want to try out gaming for the first time,or if an older person wants to get into it. The system itself is cheap to buy,and is as reliable as a newer PS2,the only issue that you have to be aware of is that some of the older Xbox’s DVD drives are prone to partial or full failures,But if your buying a refurbished system then when it is sent in,the DVD drive will be replaced with a newer model one. If your buying one at EB games then it comes with a free 30 day warranty (that’s 1/3 of the original 90 day warranty FYI) And for only $4 more you can get a FULL 1 year warranty,if there is anything wrong with the system it gets replaced no questions asked-NICE

Now,the downfall about buying a ‘discontinued’ system like the Gamecube or Xbox is the peripherals are very hard to find at your local EB games,I lucked out and found 2 Xbox controllers (1 Duke and one 3rd party) for $30 and found the DVD remote for $20 (I should have held off on it,but I was to excited to wait)

Games themselves have hit rock bottom (just like the system) price wise,the MOST one game should cost used at EB/Gamestop would be $20,but most can be had for $14.99 (I’m talking about good ones) And if your lucky you can get some good games for under $10. I will now list the pros/cons of the systems. Just for reference I’ll list some games I got:

Ninja Gaiden
Metal Gear Solid 2
Crimson Sea
Otogi
Otogi 2
Beat Down:Fists of Vengeance

Those six I got for $50,you cant beat that!

Pros:

+Cheap to buy
=/=Reliable
+Games are cheap
+Still looks cool
+100′s of games still available

Cons:

=/=Older models are less reliable (DVD drives prone to failures)
-Peripherals are hard to find locally (esp. Controllers,witch are getting expensive)
-Game selection will eventually dry up
-Even with a 1 year warranty,your not going to be guaranteed an Xbox further down the road (they haven’t been made since 2005 :’( )

Great System!, March 2, 2011

It has been a flawless system for me. It is my favorite system of all. It has the best graphics of it’s era, way better than the “prehistoric ps2″ or the “gamecube”. The controller fits perfectly into my hand, and it’s comfortable to use. It has great games, like Halo 1&2, Morrowind, Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic 1&2, Doom 3, and Doom 3 Resurrection of Evil. No technical problems at all for me. It can also play movies and music. The original Xbox in my opinion, is better than the 360. Since it’s so cheap, the unit and the games are way more affordable than the 360.
A must buy system for hard core gamers!
