Has anyone noticed the new post on the home page of this site?
Microsoft awarded teamxbox.com an award for all their support before and after the Xbox shipped.

Now I commend xboxaddict for posting this news being that we are all family, since we all support Microsoft and it's killer next-generation console. Micosoft even gave them a trophy with engraving on the statue. If you follow the link it will show you the news and Microsoft statement.
I mean im happy for teamxbox.com but what about our guys?

I looked (for the first time) at their forum boards and that pretty much answered any doubts I had.
Those guys are over flooded with thousands of members.
I figure that is the only explination since I cant figure out another.

The main reason I joined the addict team is because of thee much smaller community. Now I would love for it to grow much bigger now, but you know what I mean.

All im saying is Microsoft needs to open their d@mn eyes and give props to all the dedicated Xbox sites no matter their preference for what have you.
Sorry guys for that long post, just kinda pi$$ed that my dawgs got no props:eek: !!

here is a the pic of the trophy/award Microsoft awarded teamxbox, f'n screw job if you ask me! And I know you did :D

First off...that trophy is bad ass! :D

As for this site...to me, we don't need a trophy. We all know that this site is the best of the best...though, TeamXbox is, undoubtably, a great site, too :D To me, this is almost like my home away from home...and gives us the great opportunity to really make some great friends that are also obsessed with XBox gaming. You all have to admit this: We are probably the most pyschotic Xbox gamers on the net :D Don't get me wrong, this is a very good thing :D hehe....Hence the perfect name for this site: XBoxAddict.com!

~~~XboX AdDicT.cOM pRyDE!!!!!~~~

This site is definately the better of the two. You guys should have gotten the trophy, which is very bad ass.

My only gripe would be to get rid of that stupid nurse at the top of the boards. :p

yeah max, I guess your right. I was pretty heated up with my previous post. But im cool now;)
Your right, we dont need a trophy to know we are special. You make a good point. We are like a family, and we all pretty much know one another. I could'nt ask for a much better group of guys to have as Xbox commrades!:)

Let's face it, cant no website or forum board be as carismatic, cool, or in my case-as good looking as da fellas in xboxaddict!:cool:


P.S. ....... I still think we got screwed & robbed! :D

lol, Ninja...I wasn't actually disagreeing with you...I just thought I would kindly point out that this site is designated for the abnormal XBox gamer...meaning, to people like us that are exceptionally hardcore XBox fans....pyschotic in many ways in that all we do is come to this site and play games while living life :D hehehe....I love this site....great news, reviews, and even brews....and great on-line buddies that we all will recognize once the on-line forum is completely set up this summer! lol

That is going to be so bad ass, gentlemen! (oh yeah, and Xboxpebbles :D) I mean, think about that for a moment....how cool is it going to be when we are all on-line playing Halo, for example, during this Summer? I plan on using the same nickname...if it's already taken, I will simply add some numbers or change my nickname so you all know it's me and I hope you all do the same! I mean, I know we can do that on Gamespy and stuff...but, quite frankly, I don't know if I want to go through the hastle of purchasing a bunch of hardware that I know I will only use for a few months. I can wait for Summer, no doubt...by then, I will probably get finished with Azurik anyway :D

So, this site is better and better when you think about it! Okay, d a m m i t!!! Group HUG!!!! :D

Waximus, that is gonna reek of coolness, to go online with each other in Halo 1.5 come back to the addict forum and have mad crazy bragging rights!:cool: That's gonna rule yo! Im gonna try to keep my user name too! If it's take i'll probably use something like Ninja Jubei, or Ninja Nutz (lol) hehehe!:D
Im gonna wait until the offical launch as well. I can wait, but as time grows closer I might lose my freakin mind in anticapation!!:eek: :eek:

Man, just think of it, Ninja Jubei vs. maximus vs. F'N Show vs. VAN vs. Jason-XBA, ect. In Halo 1.5!!!!! OOOohhhhhhhhhh the excitement!:eek: :eek: Im losing it now guys heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp meeeeeeee!!

Okay, time for dat group hug now,... max, no funny stuff either:D

I had no idea that we had such a big pile fans of the site. When you're not number one like us, you kindda feel like you get fed left overs all the time. I honestly hope that's going to change, very soon. :(

I really want to thank you guys for coming back day after day. All this wouldn't be possible without the help of the pervious staff members, Jeremy, Jason, Sharoon, VAN, Sebastien, Diane, Gerald , Tyrell and a few more...great people that have poured their heart and soul into this now HUGE site. (700+ user reviews & 3,400+ members!)

:)

Thanks for the continued support, guys! Did you guys noticed that XboxAddict.com was the only site giving away free Xbox games before Christmas? Or is it just me? We got more game giveaways coming soon.

:eek:

It sure has been fun watching this site grow and meet all of you dedicated fans (and even some dedicated cube fans in the debate forum:p). I know I always enjoy checking out the forums and seeing what everybody is up to!

Thanks for the mention Stephen :)

On a side note this is my 900th post :p

Don't worry, TXB is a great website and they deserved what they got. Not to say that this isn't a great site but TXB has been through alot (When they went down due to server problems). Also TXB or MSXBOX was out before XBA.

But honestly I don't know why TXB was just the only site given a award because sites like FunXbox, Planet Xbox and others are great sites.

But this is a great site and it's getting better everyday. But guys don't hate TXB...because that's a great site...but some day we'll get our credit. ;)

teamxbox is linked with ebgames, the online store for one (if not) the biggest video game stores in north america...

alot of people bought their xboxes at EB, so they got headups to teamxbox for being linked to them...

it's how the money flows...

This site is SO much better though :)

Although I'm not authorized to discuss XBA's daily hits in these forums, I can say that TXB doesn't get 5 times as much hits then we do. To tell you the truth they don't get too much more hits than us.

But like I said, I can't give and exact # because I'm not authorized to tell yall our # of hits a day or unique visitors a month.

he does make a good point Tyrell! I wish there was a way we could get offical numbers.
But honestly, I dont give 3 drops of monkey pi$$!
xboxaddict.com runs da web when it comes to xbox news, updates, previews, reviews, pics, ect. As well as the best d@mn forums ever! I mean, come on- Ninja Jubei being a member of xboxaddict just proves how cool we are!

Just because TXB may have 100s of people at their forums doesn't mean a thing.

Well, put more links and graphics leading to your forums around the site. I'm not totally sure, but the only link I've noticed leading to the forums is in the navigation at the top. Maybe have a "Discuss in our forums.." after every news article, or on the top of reviews..etc.

Also it wont hurt to run even more contest! I know it cost money but just give away cheap, but worthy gifts in the forums and stuff like that.
