Went ahead and traded in my PS2 and about 20 games getting around $200 store credit at Gamestop. Got a refurbished Xbox (by Microsoft manufacturing date march 2005) for $129.99 plus Starwars battlefront 2, unreal championship 2, and counter-strike. I've played counter-strike before (on xbox) and have to say, I'm still just as addicted to it and that's without even trying xbox live.
Anyone play online still?
I'm considering signing up for Xbox live (was a member years ago) it's kind of hard to justify the "pay to play" especially when I was getting online with my ps2 for free, but after reading j allard's interview in the latest official playstation magazine (no I don't mean OXM.. :wink:) he pretty much summed up the reasoning for paying for Xbox Live when they asked about paying to play.
Any game suggestions for someone getting back into the original xbox this late in the game? Definitely like games with bots (Counter-Strike is a perfect example) or games with huge worlds to explore to meet and interact (and hopefully join up) with NPC's.
After all this time of playing the ps2 and now going to xbox, I have to wonder.. what the hell was I thinking? The graphics alone won me over, but the controller is simply the best one out there (for a console anyway) when it comes to first person shooters.
1. mod it
2. if you haven't played it on your pc, try out morrowind
