    talk about yours. Mine has been working well since the day i bought it (thats 3 or 4 years , i don't exactly remember).

    I hope you're not one of those people who treat their systems roughly then complain when it stops working

    Xbox is like god compared to ps1 and 2.
    Example: Morrowind Elder scrolls III was not released on gamecube or ps2 because they couldn't support it. Xbox runs a lot smoother because its faster.
    My computer is awesome.

    You can't say that Xbox is better than PS2 or vice versa.

    Personally i don't like the Xbox controller , it's weight and size. And in my opinion , PS2 games focuses on "fun" while Xbox focuses on "graphics" (but thats only my opinion).

    we are going off-topic btw

    Is overclocking an XBox treating it roughly?

    Unless you know what you're doing

    carrying an Xbox is treating your back roughly though

    I like PS2 and XBox but I seem to only use the PS2 to watch dvds in my car on long trips to school. The Xbox I'd rather see on a larger screen than the 5 inch display in my dash. Of course I have more games for Xbox so maybe that's why I keep it home...

    Ordered my replacement yesterday. Wasn't really worried about it burning anything, but it's free so why not

    I don't know about everyone else, but I've been playing waaay too much halo 2 lately. Gotta love Xbox Live
