Personally I still remain wary of the X-box. On paper, it seems like a powerful machine, & it'll have support as already demonstrated.
For all their promises, why do I fear it to be the first games console to feature software "patches"/updates for their games?
However, note why MS have decided to enter the home console gaming market-it's about OS's, & the lack of sales they wouldn't be making for broadband,internet capable machines like PSX 2.
I'm not saying the hardware isn't good, but I remain concerned..
