    It's highly doubtfull that the Xbox would go the way of the Dreamcast. Sega already had one foot in the grave when they released the Dreamcast. Their poor endeavors in hardware was their undoing. The way they abandoned their platforms for new hardware and gave the finger to their customers was what killed them. They were going through some serious financial problems when they released the Dreamcast.

    With the Xbox it's backed by one of the richest companies around. It wil be around for sometime to come. Besides with guys like [link=http://homepage.mac.com/jcarusone/iMovieTheater2.html]this behind the box, how can it fail.[/link] :p

    I just think it's funny that Microsoft helped Sega with the dreamcast, and then ran off and built the best system on the planet, leaving Sega to rot! It's as if they needed to work with a company in the console industry, just to get tips on what to do/what not to do!

    Sony Worked with Nintendo? Wow, I did not know that. So how 'bout a bunch of us ban together, make a company, start working with Microsoft, take the best stuff from the X-BOX and put out an ultimate system.

    Knowing MS they would bury us all!

    Yeah for the SNES they planned to have a cd add on much like SEGA had but it never panned out. Sony was the one making the CD drive. Which is funny considering they took what they learned from Nintendo and made the PS1 which knocked Nintendo from the #1 slot.

    Just stumbled upon a interesting looking RPG. It's made by some of the guys that are/were working on Horizons.

    Dominion: [link=http://www.pharaoh-productions.com/dominion_public_spec.html]Official Site Lots Of Info[/link]

    >>>DOMINION is a multiplayer action/RPG game that takes place in a fantasy world which features many different above-ground and underground realms. With 6 races, 6 guilds, and a vast variety of magic, monsters, items, quests, and more, DOMINION also focuses on the multiplayer capabilities of the Xbox by supporting up to 8 player parties via LAN or the Internet.<<<

    A online RPG in the same vein as Phantasy Star Online which is also coming to the xbox. Except instead of being limited to 4 players online it will be 8. :D

    Here's a screen more can be found [link=http://teamxbox.com/screenthumbs.php?gid=286]here[/link].

    You can add Wreckless and THPS3 to my list. Again I ask: Has anyone else played Halo or THPS2X online?

    Do you think that Jedi Knight II will make its way to the X-Box? Do you predict that the port will be any good?

    I sure hope Jedi Knight II will be transferred to X-Box. I mean I know not many people got into Obi Wan, but here's a chance to really kick it up a few notches.

    I'm not to sure about JO making it to the Xbox. But since Duke Nukem Forever, Doom III, Return To Castle wolfenstien and Medal Of Honor are heading to xbox maybe LA might see the benifits of porting it. Afterall the Console market is bigger then the PC games market and they might see better profits. :D

    Lucas Arts still has not announced a Episode II game that revolves around the Jedi fighting or anything depicting the Clone Wars (Asides from Jedi Starfighter). So who knows maybe we might be fortunate to see a game similar to JO except with Obi Wan or Anakin as the main character. :D

    Midtown Madness 3 announced for Xbox.

    [link=http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories/news/0,10870,2855637,00.html]Midtown Madness 3[/link]

    >>>Microsoft announced today that Midtown Madness 3 is being developed for the Xbox by Digital Illusions, the same developer behind Rallisport Challenge. Midtown Madness 3 will be set in fully interactive interpretations of Paris and Washington, D.C. There will be 30 licensed vehicles to choose from, as well as three different gameplay modes, including blitz, checkpoint, and cruise. Midtown Madness 3 will also take advantage of the Xbox's audio capabilities by supplying ambient samples from pedestrians and traffic, as well as voice-overs for the game's characters.<<<

    Hehe I loved the first one. It's like a sanitised version of GTA but still fun.

    [link=http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories/news/0,10870,2856324,00.html]Crimson Skies[/link]

    >>>Microsoft has officially announced that it has been working on a Crimson Skies game for the Xbox called Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge. As air pirate Nathan Zachary, players will pilot 10 types of craft in 1930s America. Each plane in the game is loaded with an assortment of weapons, including napalm missiles, magnetic grapples, and sandstorm cannons. Players will even be able to trigger landslides or collapse bridges to take out enemies. Microsoft also has plans to incorporate a split-screen multiplayer mode that supports four-player dogfighting.<<<

    Looks cleaner then the PS2 version but still uses the same bland textures. Why couldn't Lucas Arts take the Xboxs capabilities into account and clean up the graphics instead of whipping out a quick PS2 port? Theres no reason that this game couldn't look as good as Crimson Skies. :(

    Well there is really. See, that would involve dedication and effort on the part of LucasArts. Which comes in dribs and drabs. With any luck they'll have spent it all on JO and Galaxies.

    I'm glad to hear that MM3 will be coming out for the X-Box as I really liked the first 2. As for the X-Box specs, check [link=http://www.msxbox.com/article.php?id=54&t=h]HERE[/link] for comparisons between X-Box, PS2 and GCN.
