Hook Bashes the Xbox

Former Id Software programmer Brian Hook stated his negative opinions on how the Xbox is going to fail on Voodoo extremes’ "Ask Brian Hook" column. Here’s what Hook had to say....

"If you has asked me 6 months ago, I think I would have been firmly of the belief that X-Box had a real serious shot. After talking to publishers, other developers and journalists, I’m beginning to think that X-Box has a pretty grim future. I may venture out far enough on a limb to say that X-Box is flat out going to fail in the marketplace."

.."Right now I’m gonna have to say that PS2 owns the most killer apps in the console space. GameCube is going to be a distant, but strong, number two. X-Box has what? Gotham Racer and HALO? While these may be good games, are they really in the same class as Metal Gear Solid 2, Twisted Metal Black and GT3? I don’t think so. Are they even in the same class as some of the titles coming out for Nintendo? I still don’t think so."

.."So the way I score it, PS2 is going to have a good lead, GC will take #2, and X-Box is going to evaporate within two years. Microsoft’s problem is that they just didn’t successfully court the key Japanese developers that really define much of the console experience. This isn’t entirely their fault, but I do get a sense that Microsoft focused too much on the technology and the hype instead of on getting very high quality games."

WOW! Now that’s a kick in the teeth. Find out more of what Brian had to say (as if we really care!) right here.
