June 27, 2002 - Worth magazine points out the cool expensive stuff that'll make your neighbors jealous and your enemies envious with the Annual A-list. The top products in 21 more or less unrelated categories and the runners up have been revealed and your beloved Xbox is one of them.
No, as hard as it tried, the Xbox didn't win for Best PDA or Travel Website. Those awards went to Sony's Clie NR70V and Travelocity, respectively. Sony will just have to happy with that award for its overgrown calculator because the best videogame console according to Worth magazine was the mighty Xbox. Surely the PS2 or GameCube was runner-up in such a niche category? Nay, we say. The honor of runner-up videogame console goes to Nintendo's GameBoy Advance. Worth certainly has a thing for overgrown calculators.

You don't have to be rich, you just need to be able to save money, which is kind of hard these days...

Kewl... but what is WORTH magazine... perhaps that's a stupid question, but I don't recall seeing it PROMONENTLY displayed at the racks. I'm not saying it's not a reputable source... its just that I've not heard of it.

Isn't Worth Magazine one of those mags devoted to articles, etc. about wealthy lifestyes, like the Robb Report?

Out of all the 3 consoles, the X-box is the only one that would take full advantage of some very expensive setups, like high-end audio gear for home theaters, HD projectors/displays. I'd say broadband internet connections could fit in there as well since it really does cost substantially more than any dial-up connection.

So, I would say the X-box really is the best gaminig console for the wealthy. Although, you don't have to be wealthy to own one.

Come to think of it, I'm sure I've already spent over $1000 on my Xbox already.

Heres what I found:

Worth, the rich man magazine, has released its annual A-List. In the A-List they decided the best product and the runner up in 21 different categories. Xbox is the best videogame console, the runner up? Cube? Sony? Dreamcast!? Nope, the Game Boy Advanced.

I guess I would agree with that ranking.
