Magazines, like a year or so before it was released. The buzz had started a while after the PS2 came out, that's pretty much when I figured I'd be getting it. Also thought of getting a GC after seeing the earliest Zelda footage. After research into game linups etc, I chose the X.

I heard about it through one of my friends. Slowly learnt more about it towards the launch date, but never really went out of my way to find out about it. Now i see how superior it is to the PS2, i'm getting one wednesday. :D

Cheers,

i found out when i was doing research for a power point presentation for school about the history of video game consoles and i had it listed under ...The Future Of Gaming....along with the gamecube...weird thing is this was before people knew what the xbox would look like...with lots of digging around i had found a picture that looked like a computer tower which claimed to be what the xbox might look like...it looked like a spacey looking computer tower with glowing green lights..looked weird

This is the SDK machine for the game developers I believe.

The Gamecube developer unit I saw looked like a purple desktop computer with controller ports on the front.

Glad to hear it, hope it brings you hours and hours of fun like it has to me and others on this board. I see you have good taste by the icon under your name.
