MSNBC Xbox Review

Xbox is bulky but powerful But Microsoft has to win gamers over

GAMERS MAY not be willing to take a chance on Xbox, even if the Xbox launch library is better than the library Sony pieced together for the launch of PlayStation 2.

In fact, having played most of the launch lineup for Xbox, I can confidently say it is a far superior group of games than Sony had at the launch of PlayStation 2 a year ago.

There has been a lot of talk about the size of Xbox, which will be released in the United States Nov. 15. The Xbox console is approximately four times the size of GameCube, and it is bigger and bulkier than any previous console. The handles on its controllers are also large. Microsoft is going after an older, male audience, so the large controllers are supposedly adult-sized.

Catch the rest here.
