    3. what is dvd playback?

    4. Is there going to be any games like quake 3 made for the x-box so I can vs. people online?

    5. Do I need a isp for internet connection with the x-box?

    ah here we go.

    1) Yes, you will need to purchase the dvd remote, for 24.99 i believe.

    2) Well, "going on the internet" id use as a loose term, it wont be able to surf the web, but if you mean online gaming, no it comes with a Broad Band modem built in.

    3) Ummm DVD playback is when you stick a DVD (Digital Video Disc) into the xbox, and it will play it back as if its a DVD player. Simply put, it plays movies.

    4) Yes there will be many quake-like games to play online - Halo, Unreal Championship, Quake 3 Special Edition, WWII Online, the list goes on and on

    5) Yes, i would imagine you'd need an existing cable internet servie provider, but im sure they will debut their own service in the near future.
