    Default What would you change about the Xbox?

    So what would you?

    I know some of yall kight say nothing, but think harder.

    I would say we could put our own graphic card in.

    You know, when cards get better, we could make our graphics even better.

    But then it might be hard to develop for.

    So what would you change?


    PS: I'm am not saying the Xbox is bad.
    No way in hell will you get my Xbox.

    No way in hell will the Xbox fail!!

    No offense, dude...but, putting a new graphics card in won't improve existing games one bit. The nVidia graphics card is far more powerful and capable of providing graphics than all of the graphical capability of every game out combined. That may be a stretch...but, no game comes close to maximizing the nVidia graphics card...not even close.

    However, I have thought of one thing I would change, however, it's not the system itself. I would change to make it an absolute requirement that all games support 1080i and/or 720p.

    I'd like to see consoles generally upgradeable. The ability to swap out the processor, motherboard, and video cards would be great.

    Actually I think it is the non-upgradeability about consoles which make them so appealing. It means that the developers can develope for one set of hardware specs and learn it inside and out. Find out how to cheat and push it and basically exploit everything it has to offer. If you make the console upgradeable like graphicswise, that means now the developer has to design a scalable game like on the PC. One that will work with the high end card and the low end card. This ultimately will hurt one of them everytime a game is released. Not cool. Plus they have to learn how to program for the new card and the learning curve starts all over again. The only way this works if they make the next gen system backwards compatible, ie PS2. Very smart IMO.

    What I would like to change:

    I'm with Maximus. Give us the 1080i and 720p games. Make them all support 16x9 and all do true DD 5.1. None of this half assed 4.0 stuff that most games seem to be. This should be part of MS quality control.

    I would have liked to have a VGA port or DV-I port on the xbox.

    I think the loadtimes should be quicker... it doesnt really bother me, but thats one of the only things GCN does better than xbox.

    Nothing much about Xbox, except that whole better resolution thing. We have an HDTV, and I'd like to see a game that makes good use of it.

    The only other thing I would change isn't about the Box itself... it's the games.

    ***Steps onto the soapbox***

    We need some good, original games. I don't mean games that aren't ports, because I like ports if they're done well (like Silent Hill 2 and unlike Agent Under Fire.) I'm just talking about games with tons of replay value that you don't get bored with easily. STORYLINES ARE ALSO IMPORTANT!!!!! Too many developers seem to be forgetting this. I never have to think hard when I ask the question "Where have I seen this before?" It's always obvious, and most of the time there are multiple answers.

    Lightbulb hmmmm what would change ...

    Honestly there is very little that I would change on the Xbox because it is already so great lol

    but all good things do have there flaws and xbox has very little of them but one is that it should be able to play cd r music or even mp3's that woud make it the cd player feature a lot better.

    It also takes a long a time to put a cd on u box.

    one again these are very small things and i do not mind not having them

    Theres honestly not much, but one thing that seriosly ****es me off is the way that if u unplug it for any amount of time, you have to reset time and date settings.

    i would change a couple things about the xbox.

    first, i would like to be able to upgrade it. i know that most people do not like to upgrade, but lets say it was not extreme, every month upgrading. say something like every 20 months, something new comes out, but just something minor, just to battle with the competition, like the xbox needs to tho.

    second, i would love, if it could run some computer games, i don't care if their only microsoft, but that would be pretty cool.

    third, even tho this may just come put later, i would like to see "better" games. games that aren't dissed by even the most hard core fans of the xbox. get rid of stuff like Kabuki Warriors. and we also need more original games. we have stuff like Dead or Alive 3, Silent Hill 2, Morrowind, JSRF. nonetheless these games are good (no one has played Morrowind yet), but it would be better if games started life on xbox.
    ha..

    the cds could copy a little bit faster, i guess. loading times are ok, at the beginning of NFL Fever it seems to take forever though, i wouldn't mind changing that.

    overall, it's pretty F**KIN' AWESOME!!

    I think the left hand joy stick should be positioned where the d -pad is ,its not logical they should be at the same height because there used in conjunction with eachother.
    I think they just thought it would look to similar to the ps2 controller.

    make the black and white buttons a little easier to reach, and have a sensor so before my cat rubs himself on the xbox a stream of gasoline soaks him and then the xbox lights him up! Talk about all in one entertainment box!
