    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.

    it seems im the only one who bought a console for other things rather than games...

    i was gonna buy a dvd player... then i decided i wanted it with divx support... the cheapest i could find was at 200 us dollars... i don't know why, but doing a search google sent me to xbox-scene forums to the xbmc section... only then i realized i could mod an xbox, install xbmc and play any type of audio and video currently supported on the pc, and with the ability of updating codecs n' stuff.... plus i could install a bigger hd and save all my movies in there...

    games were just a secondary reason...

    in the next couple of weeks i might be buying a ps2 *JUST* for GTA: San Andreas...

    I've bought them all just to play different games.

    I even have an Atari Jaguar. POS

    The only system I never got was an Intellivision.
