I remember when I bought the first issue of XBM in November and the other mag with it. I also remember buying Xbox for 299.99+6% I was so happy. How about anyone else did they buy Xbox when it first came out? :cool:

If I remember right, it was the day after it came out. Halo, Project Gotham Racing, and 3 other controllers. It seems so long ago. BTW, over a year of owning an Xbox, and I've had no malfunctions, or dirty disk errors.

I bought my Xbox right before Christmas of 2001 along with Dead or Alive 3 & Halo.

Da experience was'nt as exciting as when I was in line for my Sega Dreamcast at Midnight back on 9/9/99 when I also copped Sonic Adventure, NFL2K, Ready 2 Rumble, & Soul Calibur.
But none da less, im happy with my purchase.:)

Lucky. I bought my first one the first day with replacement plan. A year later it took a dump so I got my second one in late november. That one took a dump and got a third one in Jan. No problems YET.

You couldnt have said it any better. Granted, I was blown away by halo. But not as much when I first popped in NFL2K and Ready 2 Rumble. WOW.

I got it for Christmas 2001, about a month after it came out. I got it with Oddworld and Amped. I bought Halo a few months later, after renting it first. The graphics and games were amazing and I knew I would be dedicated to this console for years!

The one I am currently using is a Launch Box, the one I had before it I bought in Febuary of last year, died right after the limited warrantee. The one I have now used to be my sisters, but she gave it to me for my bday (today) with all her games both because she never plays and because mine broke and I'm too broke to get a new one. ROCK ON SIS!!!

I got mine on Launch day after spending 14 hours of camping overnight just so I could be first in line to get one :D I bought Halo and PGR one week before the launch. I bought Amped one week after launch.

I still play Halo practically every other day...and Amped I play atleast once a week. PGR...well, I haven't touched it in several months.

March of 2002. I finally played enough of my PS2 and gave it to my son. Went out and got the Xbox and the first game I had was Rallisport Challenge. I dont care for Halo at all so it never entered my Xbox until my brother brought it over to play. I think I have played Halo twice total in my Xbox life...LOL..No thanks, I'll take the sports games.

I got mine for Christmas, the first Christmas it was out. I payed the full 300$(I think it was that much) how much it was when it came out.I got Fever 02 and PGR with it and then a week later get Halo.

CrazyCougar, You said you would take sports over Halo, for me it would depend on the sport, The best sports game out I think is NCAA Football 03 (EA), thats the only one that would come close. I also recomend it to anyone how hasn't already played it, its great.

I bought mine one week after launch and could not believe the graphics when I popped in Fever '02. I've been hooked ever since.

The game I'm playing the most right now is Madden '03. It's going to be tough to decide next tiime between Fever, NFL 2K4 or Madden.

I remember paying $525 CDN for the console alone. Ouch. painful but worth it. Anyone here see any pics of Xbox Lite yet?

i preordered mine in like february of 2001. i was going to babbages to buy a ps2 (cause i got a lot of money and stuff for christmas). so i went down to the mall, and they were sold out everywhere. so i asked the guy when he would get some more in, and he said not to bother with it, and he told me about the xbox (i already knew about the xbox, i just didnt think it was good, i thought that it was stupid, lol). he told me about all the cool things (like the harddrive and stuff). so i preordered the xbox.

then on nov 15th, my mom picked me up from school and we went down and i got my xbox, i also bought halo, doa3, and an extra controller. so as we're walking out, i saw that i still had like 60 bucks left. so we go to toys r us (its like 1 minute away from the mall), and i bought project gotham. and when i got home i hooked it up and i think the first game i played was doa3, and i was like oooooh man these graphics are cool. lol. then i played project gotham, then i played halo. and i played halo until like 10 at night (cause it was a school night). lol. but i played my xbox like all weekend.

haha. and the next day. in my website design class, some loser kid was looking at xbox.com, and he was checking out the xbox. and then he went to some website, i dont know what it was. and he was talking to the teacher. and he was like "yea, so the xbox looks really cool. it says that you can install like MS Office on it and use programs." lol i just laughed and didnt say anything.

Got mine in February of '02. The only other video game I'd owned was Pong, but I'd caught the media coverage of the launch. I went to a couple of web sites that said if you could only get one Xbox game to show off the box get Halo. Logged off, drove to Wal Mart, and got both. Never a regret.

I got my Xbox on launch day with Munch's Odyssee and Halo. I woke up at 3 a.m., skipped school and I was number 3 at Target. Man I felt sorry for the dude being criticised by his PS2 fanboy friends. LMAO They were talking smack on a system they didn't even play yet. But he took Halo and DOA3 and I bet the laughing stopped when they saw the Xbox in action. :D :cool: :)

I got mine the day that they dropped price here in Australia. I had never really wanted a console, but when I heard the XBOX was dropping in price, I thought I might look over what it had to offer, dropped into a few sites, read up about it a little. Also read a few PC games mags, which were dabbling in mentioning the PC-like XBOX in their mag as well.

Pre-ordered it, to be picked up about a day or two after the price drop was made, along with PGR. It became a very good buddy when I had my knee reconstruction about 11 weeks ago, Sam Fischer was also a good friend then too!!

Um... the Xbox I use is my brother's. No point in having two in the house. :D I may get one as soon as I find a good job and move out, but I really need a new car (a Mini), I also want to save up for a Vespa and donate some money to the orgs I subscribe to.

I pay the cost of 3 Xboxes a month just for health insurance, car insurance, and student loan payment, and am currently unemployed. Ouch! :(

I got my Xbox at 8:00 am at EB on 11/15/01. I preoordered on Sept. 1, 2001, the day preoroders started. I also was the first in line to pick up my Xbox. I can remember myself walking arounf the mall carrying around my Xbox down the stairs. My arm was very tired after that walk carrying my Xbox.

I preordered my Xbox 6 months ahead of time. I picked it up on day one with 4 games (Halo, Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee, Dead Or Alive 3, and Project Gotham Racing), and the DVD kit.

i didn't get mine until early november 2002. first game i bought was tony hawk 4.

since then i've wasted a good 1000 bucks on mine, but i'm still having a blast doing so ;)

xbl live kit, nhl 2k3, mechassault, ssx tricky, motogp, halo, segagt/jsrf, 2 s-controllers, 1 original controller and the dvd kit.

the xbox is a huge money drain, but boy is it fun.

I bought mine that weekend after it was first released. I thought i had no chance to get one, but those dummies who reserved it didnt pick it up and i just came in with cash. Anyways i had only ONE dirty disk error and no other problems. I currently have 5 games in my library and soon to be 6 when wsb drops. I had bought 20 since i had the xbox. and i have live. The 375 bones i spent for the box and halo has more than proved its worth with me.

i bought mine about 2 weeks before the first price drop,paid about $675 Canadian for it with Halo,,,lucky i got it at Wal-mart so i took mine back after the price drop and got $175 refund back and kept my same X-box with all my saves,,i thought it was worth every penny when i paid $675 for it and i still do.

I now have 27 games. Have had dirty disk errors on Morrowind and Turok but no other problems.

Ahh, got mine 3 days before Christmas 2001. It came bundled with and extra controller, NFL Fever 2002, and Oddworld. In Mid November I had already bought Halo and Amped. I read those manuals over and over and over in anticipation. I still have the Xbox box plus every OXM issue and Disk that have come out.

I've had 3 xboxs so far. My first one was defective and had to get it replaced. Then two months later a disk got stuck in my new one. the people at best buy had to rip my poor xbox apart to get it out. Its a good thing i had a warrenty. Now i am praying this one lasts longer than a few months
