X Marks the Spot

The peeps over at AVault have posted an article called X Marks the Spot and tells why they believe that the Xbox will "lead the pack among its next-generation bretheren." Here’s a tidbit of the article:

Despite this stiff competition, Microsoft seems committed to establishing itself as a major player in the gaming industry, and their impressive hardware specifications along with a respectable list of supporters proves that their efforts are paying off. In many ways, the greatest criticism aimed at the X-Box is also its greatest strength: It’s just a computer. True enough, the system has all the components common to a household desktop, but it is more than a simple computer. Instead, it is a dedicated gaming console built using the same parts as a computer and then mass-produced and marketed at a price well below the standard desktop price range. Ergo, a stable platform with all the storage space and accessories of a computer that developers already understand will be available from day one. Additionally, the system will guarantee broadband support in every unit that ships, meaning it’s likely we’ll see some Internet ready games at the launch. All things considered, there’s little reason that this situation shouldn’t usher in the greatest first-generation of games ever produced on a console.
