Yesterday I went to Media Play looking to buy a new XBOX game like Silent Hill 2, Bloodwake or maybe Obi Wan. When I went to the game section I saw the only game of these 3 that was in stock was Obi Wan. I approached a very young looking store clerk and asked him what opinions he had heard or had himself about the game. His reply was that he didn't know because he woulnd't waste his time with the XBOX. It was a stupid buy, and that the Gamecube was a better system with better games that was outselling the XBOX. I couldn't believe my ears. Number one this guys should be interested in making a sale not ****ing off a customer by saying that my $300 investment was dumb. Number two he was wrong as I see most Gamecube fanatics are. The XBOX has more launch games. The XBOX has better launch games. The XBOX has better sound. The XBOX has better graphics capabilities due the fact that the nVidia chip is the only fully programmable and also most powerful consumer level graphics card on the market. I don't know why I wasted my time telling this little 16 year old this stuff, but I did. When he told me the Gamecube was selling more I mentioned that in fact it was not. Perhaps at his store it was, but not overall. When he tried to point out to me that he would know more than me because he worked at media play, I explained to him that not only have I owned virtualy every console since pong, but I was also a computer engineer with a BS in theoretical computer science. So, finally, after a failed attempt to convince him that a DVD drive and a hard drive weren't bad ideas, I gave up, grabbed Obi Wan and walked up to the front counter. As I was walking away he kindly pointed out that it might be a good game because it was from the "same people that did Rogue Squadron for the gamecube and not from microsoft". Idiot. By the way, Obi Wan is pretty fun.
