There are a few possibilities.

It will either go under my XBOX, or be sold. This will be decided when we find out if XBOX 2 is backwards compatible or not. :D

Assuming the Xbox2 can play Xbox1 games (like the PS2), then I will use my Xbox as an auxillary DVD player.

dont worry man xbox will still be around, i'm pretty sure they will still make xbox games. look at the playstation they have games that were still made when ps2 was out for a while. but for me i might trade in my xbox and a few games to get xbox 2 IF xbox2 has backward capabilities...

dont worry tho you still have a long time to enjoy your xbox, i give it about 5 more yrs till the xbox dies. and everyone will be all xbox2 instead.

I have only one DVD player in my house and thats an Xbox. I'll use it for a DVD player instead. We should get to play xbox 1 games on xbox2.

I'm sure that Microsoft won't leave anyone out in the cold. They are in the buisness of selling games, so as long as there is a demand, they will produce more games. It will take a few years after the release of Xbox 2 before the gameing industry totally catches up with the new advances in the field. I do not know for certain if they will make it backwards compatable, but hopefully. Anyway, don't worry about it. Your xbox has many years of quality use ahead of it.

If XBOX 2 can play my xbox games then it will probably be sold. Or just keep it.

I'll donate it to a poor kid with the games/controlls. Like I'm gonna play X1 after I get my hands on X2. Yeah, right...

Xbox 2 will go on the big screen and my old Xbox will go up in my room. Why would you want to sell it when you could keep it around? You'll get $100 out of it at the most and its DVD playback alone is worth more than that. Aside from that, it will have collector's value. I have a first generation Xbox and I plan to get the first generation of each Xbox in the series. Imagine having Xbox 1-5 in the same room at the same time... Sweetness. As mentioned before, I still play my NES, SNES, N64, 3DO, and all those other oldies but goldies, why shouldn't I add my Xbox to that list?

Unless Halo 3, is released with the XB2 like Halo was with the Xbox, I can guarntee my xbox will still be in use playing Halo 2. Among other favorites. After that I will keep it, if for nothing else as part of a collection that includes every Nintendo console ever made, PS1 and PS2, oh and Dreamcast.

That makes the most sense timing wise, for how long it is taking for the sequel. I hope it is a release title, that would make the most sense and would really boost early sales.

BullSh*t... Bungie has barely released info about Halo2, and your saying that Bungie said its gonna be for Xbox2... Maybe you heard that or assumed it BUT Bungie hasn't spoke a word about Halo3! Anyways, when Xbox2 comes out I am gonna keep my xbox cuz it's a launch one and has memories...:cry: You guys gotta calm down with the threads about Xbox2 and Halo3.... they wont be for ALONG time so enjoy Xbox1 now while it's at it's peak!! :cheers:

I will probably keep mine. I will be tempted to trade it in for teh new xbox 2 if it has backwards capability. A different reason to keep it is all my music that took so long to copy is on it too.
