I'm thinking exactly what chem is thinking. Where the hell did you get the idea that the xbox has a wire that shocks you if you open it? Do you have the slightest idea how much money mircosoft would lose over law suits by doing that kind of thing? Yeah, that'd be one of the worst ideas ever. The only detourant that Microsoft has is that the warranty becomes void and no service can or will be performed on it by a Microsoft authorized service store. Oh and red mage, why do you think that the xbox is a 'crap' system. It's online capabilities kick the shit out of PS2, oh and if you have an issue with paying for it, you must be broke. You can scrape together the 50 dollars a year to pay for it in less than a week with a minimum wage job. If you want me to prove how else the Xbox dominates the PS2, please, feel free to ask. Man, you PS2 fanboys are annoying.
