I was strolling through the mall today, on a somewhat rainy, oh so gray day. And much to my surprise, (I couldn't believe my eyes) were 50 Xboxes in a very very nice display. Well folks, I succumbed to the dark side and bought an Xbox. You see even as a child my favorite character in Star Wars was Darth Vader, so it comes naturally to me to be a disciple of Satan. I couldn't resist. I had to buy one. The will of my dark master was asserting itself. I am but a weak follower. All I've got is Dead Or Alive 3 (I thought I had bought Halo, but the clerk made an error. ) The graphics are crisp and the effects are impressive, but not so impressive that it blows Tekken away. I definitely think that the PS2 is going to be a strong competitor. I'm curious to see what a decent racing game is going to look like on this system though, as it has very little flicker (unlike the PS2) I'm going to pick up Project Gotham one of these days (I loved Metropolis Street Racer on the DC) I let everyone know whether to run over old ladies in a mad rush to the store, or to stay home and clean your PS2 with Q-tips when I see the game.
