Well, not every forum. But so far this is like the third forum on DCEmulation it's showed up on. I'd hate to be one of those members that visits multiple forums, such as consolevision, dcemu.co.uk, etc. They must've seen that link 100 times by now. :lol:

Wow that was great...

Raise your hand if you play the xbox 360 yet.

King Kong demo is amazing. The controller is great, no need to be a 7'-6" basketball player to palm this one.

It's too bad Sega didn't get at the time, because they shure were pushing the envolope for the future of gaming. Now that Microsoft stole (or bought off) all of Sega's great ideas in the last few years, I do believe Sony will be lagging behind for quite some time now.

but of course we all knww that the dreamcast failed cause it didn't have halo 3.

obviously they weren't serious with that little comparison, but I didn't see the much of what they said to be very truthful or hard hitting.

Also, the "56k didn't cut it."

I've even heard people tell me that. Guess what? The games were made for 56k, don't tell me that speed couldn't cut it.

56K was fine as the games were optimized for it. Look at the PS2...many of the games were 56K...nobody complained about it. Plus, they dragged their feet to get online over 1 year after they said that they were going to do it. Look at Sega with NFL 2K1 in the year 2000 with an online football game.

No Halo 3...big deal. Halo may have sold several Xboxes here in the states and perhaps Europe, but the Xbox is getting outsold by the Gameboy Advance (and slaughtered by the SP and DS).

One small thing they forgot to mention was the strength of the launch lineup. Unfortunately, with a couple of slips, the 360 lineup will be unable to surpass the best launch lineup of all-time...our beloved Dreamcast!

Another thing why I think 56k didn't cut it is because, at least in Holland, we have to pay for every minute we are online on 56k, like a local phonecall. The line's instable, low speed, and you've got angry parents who must pay the bills or make a phonecall while you're playing :(

I'm glad that hell is over :P

Im curious as to why they chose to make it 23 reasons. A lot of them are garbage/filler.

They should have weeded it down to 10

That was really good... even if some of the comparisons were totally bogus. One thing they forgot to mention though is the controller. Microsoft based the Xbox controller off DC's.

I really do get an eerie DC vibe from the Xbox 360 though. I'm almost tempted to buy one... no! Can't... support... Microsoft!! :x
