And okay, three spectacular in-house Microsoft games? How about Halo, NFL Fever 2002, and Munch's Oddysee? Oh, and by the way, Shenmue 2 isn't just for Dreamcast, hate to burst that little bubble you were living in :)
Sorry, I work for Viacom, not Microsoft. I know you were hoping, but I don't judge a company, I judge its product, and Xbox is the best of the best right now. PlayStation is old technology, and Nintendo is for kiddies. (And so with a bunch of Sony and Nintendo ads plastering my work place, it's really making it painful for me to respect my employer at all :))
Yes, I said the GameCube has no games. There are what, five games available right now? And two of them are Star Wars games developed by LucasArts, who are also bringing two (better) Star Wars games to the Xbox. And the other three games are rehashes of old standbys, I've seen Luigi way too many times, I don't care anymore.
MS actually made an entire line of brand new games. Halo is the most incredible game I've ever seen, and no PC game can come close to rivalling it, in terms of storyline, graphics, AI, or anything like that. (Besides, the PC is not a console, so don't make comparisons not worth making.)
Paul, I obviously wasn't old enough to reach the keyboard during those debates. Was any of those machines the clear winner in those debates, like Xbox is here? Cuz so far, nobody's been able to make a clear argument against Xbox, or for their console :)
