I am a very sad game-a-holic! I’ve pretty much had every console and computer gaming device. From ZX81 to Commodore 64 and Sinclair Spectrum through the Amiga to a PC. I then had a Super-NES, Sega MegaDrive, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2 and XBOX!
I love XBOX – mainly for XBOX live – particularly the American Football games – I was #1 for sometime on NFL 2k4 but unfortunately lost that due to the fact I had a life, job and (understanding) wife.
The Xbox 360 is going to be amazing – I’ve been grabbing a few quick games in our Reading office where we have some.
Even though I work for Microsoft we don’t get any deal on getting them cheaper/quicker 🙁 So I’m in the queue like everyone else – hoping it’ll arrive as near to launch as possible!!!
The great news is that it looks like many old games will be compatible : http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardcompatibilityqa.htm
Plus the launch lineup looks awesome! http://www.microsoft.com/uk/press/content/presscentre/releases/2005/11/PR03544.asp
All my favourites there – Madden, Fifa, Project Gotham – Christmas is going to be great!
The other thing that is really superb about XBOX 360 is the fact that you can use it as a media centre extender so I can stream TV, Video, Pictures and music from my Media Center in the lounge to my study!!!
Counting down the days…..
