    So,are you disappointed?


    Since Microsoft released it's Xbox 360 I been wondering if anyone else is disappointed that Microsoft would slowly drop it's original Xbox so soon. For me I don't think that I will ever buy another Xbox or other gaming system by Microsoft again. Don't get me wrong while some might critize the hardware for these products, I see that it isn't the biggest problem. While sure the Xbox could use some improvements couldn't also the PS2 and Gamecube? My problem however isn't with the console but rather with the support. I don't feel like Microsoft really did much to support the Xbox because when you look at it they acted to slowly or not at all when fixing problems that would arise. I also feel that Microsoft and other companys making the games did little to support a wide variety of gaming genres. Such games like "Morrowind" or "KOTOR" are great but to few. I don't know if anyone shares my opinion and you don't have to. I think the Xbox is a good consoles itself, it's just the company backing it up.

    No, I'm not disappointed. I never owned an XBOX and never will.

    they make excelent server/desktop/cluster systems and they are very cheap! (microsoft looses money on every x-box purchased as long as you dont buy the games((loss leader)))
