    I am just glad that their is a PC Greek nerd sanctuary. I just don't feel safe in the game forum with the likes of darth han wandering around. Everytime I read on of his posts I lose a few I.Q. points. If he screws up my next semester of college I'm gonna sue!

    Well after some diligent research I found out what darth_han does for a living. He is a Japanese to English translator for Japanese companies. Here is some of his better work

    My favs being:
    StarCraft
    Alien vs. Predator
    Homeworld
    Driver

    X-box is just a low powered PC. I am thinking we will see a lot of PC ports of X-box games and vice virsa.

    If PCs weren't so expensive, maybe they'd actually be good for something :) ;)

    PCs are so expensive BECAUSE they're good for EVERYTHING!

    Come to think of it, they're not really all that expensive at all these days.

    Inarguable, but in the argument of console vs. PC, you don't pay a great deal more for a PC that is as powerful as even the most accomplished of the current generation of consoles.

    I know this example is out of date, but look at Rogue Squadron. You look at it on the N64, it's great. You look at it on even a low-end computer by today's standards, it looks magnificent. You won't go back to the N64.

    Let's face it, you get what you pay for. You buy a console, great. But you need a TV to use with it. If you want a decent one, that's gonna cost you a fair whack. If you want to take full advantage of the capabilities of, say, the PS2, then you would do well to get hold of a set of surround speakers too.

    For this kind of top quality console rig, then you're not paying a whole lot less than you would for a PC, especially if you find a great deal on Ebay or the like. :D These days people are falling over themselves to sell you a PC. For one thing, even if you buy what is considered a low-end model today, you're still going to get a unit that will happily play games that hit the market over the next couple of years, because of the sheer quality of what PC technology has evolved into. Which is good for Star Wars fans, seeing the games that are just around the corner. :)

    Even though consoles are including facilities such as DVD playing and internet & e-mail, this is somthing that even low-end computers have been doing for three or four years, just as capably.

    If all you want is to play your new copy of Starfighter, send a few emails and watch the odd DVD, then by all means invest in a console, and enjoy it. But lets not pretend a console can do anything a PC can't. Except turn you into Darth_Han. ;)

    ME OWN PS@. IS GREAT. YOU ALL GREEKS. :p

    Seriously, you make good points. An example for my PS2 I had to buy a monster Cable just to get the graphics at a exceptable level. Plus as you said I bought the new Klipsch 5.1s to improve the dvd sound. The funny thing is that I mostly only use two of the speackers for my PC,no sound card, which is fine by me because I planned on getting these speackers for when I built my custom PC. Next thing I will get is a sound card.

    On a side note I found something interesting. I recently bought the original X-wing game off e-bay in order to get the Farlander Papers story. The guy included everything that came with the game. Of interest is a newspaper from Lucas Arts called The Adventurer num.5 fall 1992. The two main articles were about the X-wing game and Maniac Mansion2. What is more interesting is the prices of games from LA.
    Super Star War SNES 59.95
    Star Wars NES 45.00
    ESB NES 45.00
    X-Wing 1.44 HD 69.95
    Secret Weapons of Luftware New IBM CD-ROM 79.95
    The Secret of Monkey Island IBM CD-ROM 79.95
    Loom IBM CD-ROM with talkie sound 99.95

    If you have a burning sensation in your pants, you might want to go see a doctor. ;)
