The screenshots of the game are not how the game will look, as they take screenshots of games at much higher resolutions than the Xbox can pump out.

But here's some candy for you:

Apparently Intel,NVidia and ATI aren't going to be appart of Xbox 2's hardware. AND the CPU is going to designed to decode/execute in Microsoft Intermediate Language, while still trying to keep x86 code so that Xbox 1 games can be played on it.

^^^^

Where's your source?

From what I heard, Xbox 2 isn't going to have compatibility to play Xbox1 games, and is going to have a multi-core CPU designed by Intel.

Designing a nextgen CPU core from scratch costs millions of dollars, Xbox is known for being made with cheap "off the shelf" parts.

They're actually making another of those crap systems? Halo's the only good game, and you can't even open the fucking thing because there's a wire DESIGNED to shock you..

EDIT: On a side note, Halo itself is an awesome game. Too bad it's not a PS2 game tho

Chem-

xbreporter.com is my source. Apparently Nvidia and MS are going to be in court over contract discrepancies. And they stated that Xbox2 is going to be DYI project for MS.

I thought it was a bit faulty for them to do, because as you stated, it would be terribly costly.

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.

Yeah well, i've played a ps2 (had it for a month), and an Xbox. I admit, PS2 has better games, but Xbox's online service kicks the shit out of Ps2. I do wish i had a ps2 though
