It was not a legitimate build. They just used a random design to represent the Xbox.

they used a pc sidewinder controller lol

The funny thing is by looking on the cover it already has something about PS3. BEFORE PS2 EVEN CAME OUT!

geez Sony hypes their products way too early and way too much.

That cover says published December 1999. Ps2 launched in October 26, 2000. So about a year before ps2 launched they were already hyping up the ps3....

The gamcube itself was never called the "dolphin" how ever it was either its processing or graphics chip that was dubbed the "dolphin." Everyone just started to use the name for the next nintendo system.

My friend told me one of the original designs for the xbox was the system was supposed to be shaped like a X .......was he making it up!?

I am pretty sure people just took the name of the chip, and becuase there was no current name for the project, used it to identify the next nintendo system. It makes sense seeing as they take the name from a component to name the system. I am not sure about the n64 dd. Whatever happened to that thing anyhow? It didn't come out did it. I was soo looking forward to the gamecube when it was still being called the dolphin. I am glad I didn't buy it now.

However this is just to show the power of the Xbox, and it wasnt gonna be released as this (this was just to hold all the contents of xbox so they can show it off at shows)

The gamepad on that Xbox looks like my Logitech Wingman for the PC.

I like it better how it is now.
It show what Sony thinks of gameing that before the Playstation 2 was out there were storys of the Playstation 3 ( which is still not out yet after three years ).
Is the Playstation 2 40GB HDD / Ethernet add-on out yet , I wonder how long that will last if Sony want to bring out the Playstation 3 to replace it.
