I think I've really warmed to it. Its definately more of a visual thing than an aural thing though. When you look at the logo it does kinda represent the whole out-there-ness and image that they want it to have. Another week and i bet we'll all be wondering what the fuss was about!

I think they should've made the logo look like this:

i i
W

Then it would look more like two people playing it. XD

The Anti-Xbox thread!
« Reply #26 on: April 29, 2006, 12:01:03 PM »
This thread is for Xbox haters/dislikers to talk about how they hate Xbox and praise other companys that they do like! (Sony Praising is allowed, while Microsoft is not reccomended, and Nintendo praising is encouraged!)

If you have anything related to hating Xbox, put it here! (I hope this is allowed! Is it alright if I have this thread, or is there anything I have to change here?)


EDIT (By Yonkey): Title change (by request). :P

Xbox is too clunky and it doesn't have any PG games. ;P

Microsoft always over-encumbrances things.

Here's the deal: I like Windows, but can't stand Xbox. The downside to Windows is there is not a fancy interface like in Mac OS X. The Xbox is too clunky. It's the King Kong of consoles! The 360 is basically the same. It's not that much smaller. The Wii is going to be about the size of three DVD cases stacked on top of eachother, the PS3 is probably going to be fairly slim, so once more, the Xbox loses! I am a Nintendo Fan, personally!

Seriously?  :o They're actually making it smaller than the Gamecube?

As long as this thread remains civil (i.e. you don't make offensive comments towards people that do happen to like Xbox), it can stay.  And if it this thread turns into a flame war, it will get locked.

I can try. Thank you, Neil! I get tons of comments at school about people being prejudice towards me because I like Nintendo. It's sad, really! I've got to go!

Wii rocks! I don't hate X-Box A LOT. But I don't think it's any better than Wii. I personally don't like Playstation that much.

I can't stand the Xbox or the 360! The Wii will rock our world! If you want to read a blog on my site about prejudice comments from my school, go check out http://www.freewebs.com/allinfo2/myblog.htm. If you ask me, it's sad how people can't accept others for what they like. In my language arts class, we had to fill out an opinionaire, and I dissagreed with most all of the statements. One of them was every family strives to be a modle family. One kid agreed with it, saying that it meant you had a mom, a dad, and/or siblings. But me and a girl said that that is not always true. There are some that don't want kids. There are some people that don't have a mom and a dad. Some are single parented, some have two moms/dads. I think it dissapointing that many people can't just accept others for what they are. Many kids at my school hate me or dislike me because of my Nintendo fandom. I was talking to some kid, and then a kid I don't like came up and said, "Are you talking to him about your Nintendo site?" I find it sad that people are like that.

By the way, can someone change the name to something a little less offensive, like The I Strongly Dislike Xbox Thread or something? You know, so people don't get pissed at me for something like that...

It's kind of hard to change the name without removing the essence of the thread. :P  Anyway, I've changed it to something slightly less likely to attract flamers. XD

Just a reminder to all, keep the comments about Xbox and not about the person saying them, and all will be fine. :)

I can't stand how my parents constantly say that video games are only for kids. :P They think I'll outgrow them. :P
Granted, a lot of my games are geared towards a younger audience... XD

I don't dislike it, but I think it will take some getting used to for me.

I'm not going to let it effect my overall opinion of the system though. Nintendo has never disappointed me. (Sure the N64 wasn't as good as it could've been, but it had some great games on it, and I love my Gamecube!) ;D
