It all started a Gamestop for me. I was sick of my 233mhz computer and shitty playstation with no games. I brought in my playstation, all of its games and controllers and looked at which console I wanted to buy. I had a brand new Gamecube. Playstation 2, and Xbox in front of me (I was overwhelmed ). I came into the store wanting a Playstation 2 but I looked at my other choices. I was then ready to grab my brand new PS2 but then looked more at Xbox and was thinking more about the PS2 (after my mom started yelling at me cause I was staring at the consoles for like an hour, I looked like a dumbass ) when a guy told me about Halo ( ) and introduced me to an Xbox. I was amazed at how good Halo looked. I owe my life to that guy, btw. Anyways I got a price for my Playstation and its games and only ended up paying $80 for a used Xbox and a copy of Halo. I went home and quickly unwraped the mighty box and connected it to my shitty t.v. I played Halo all night and morning and played it for many nights and days to come. I pretty much only bought an Xbox because of Halo but I'm glad I did.
For what reason did you purchase that first console? (Xbox, Gamecube, or PS2)
