X box US release

You guys must be very close to the release of the very latest to join the home console war. Anyone planning on making a purchase?

Nawww, I'll wait a while, I waited a good year on the PSII (very shocking for me!)

I got tired of pre-ordering systems before their release. I pre-ordered the PSone (yes, I knew it would be big!), and the Dreamcast. But for now I have plenty of game machines to play around with. Maybe when I see a game that I HAVE to have, I'll buy it. But for now I have my Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation, Playstation II, Gameboy Color, Genesis Nomad, Atari 2600, and my computer to play games on. OH, cannot forget my Mario Bros. coin op! IT ROCKS

That Project Gotham Racing game looks pretty good, supposed to be like Grand Turismo, I should do some research on it and read some reviews about it. Does anyone know anything about this game? How many cars, or tracks it includes? The physics engine and simulation mode, etc?

PS2 is just starting to drop some real money now. I think I might just skip it and go to Xbox. I have $200 gift vouchers to use at Kmart so hopefully they will stock the new machine

Wow, I couldnt even tell you which games are my favorites, I like so many of them? Uhmm.... well I like Grand Tursimo I, II, and III. I like the Castlevania series. I enjoy the Metriod series. Shenmue on Dreamcast is good. I play NFL2K on Dreamcast alot too. Uhmm... well I also like all the classic games that I have like the Mario Bros. coin op, and frogger on my Atari and ENDURO on my Atari

ENDURO IS FAST! Anyone remember that game where you have to pass so many cars within so many miles, and the longer you held down the button the faster you would go?! You would literally be hauling ass zipping by all the cars, its hilarious! BUT FUN

While watching a WWF show I can answer my own question.

Seems like Xbox is sponsoring some WWF shows. Great way to get to young people for sure. Microsoft might finally be able to give Sony a run for their money when it comnes to promotion. Sadly that is something Seg never came to grips with
