How does the selection of XBox games compare to those of Playstation? Are all the good games made for both formats?October 26, 2005 at 11:02 pm #202533

as far as a family game, i think dance dance revolution is pretty cool on xbox. i prefer halo but that’s not really for family time. it’s my understanding the playstation library is the largest. but quality and quality are two very different things. it’s long been my opinon that nintendo is the platform of choice for families. the games tend to be less violent as a whole but more importantly nintendo’s games are often better in quality. there are more kid friendly games, there are more innovative puzzle games, there are rich RPGs that are fantasy and kid oriented, etc.November 13, 2005 at 3:59 am #203297
This may be a dumb question, but will the XBox 360 play the original XBox games or do we have to upgrade our whole collection?
I bought a dance pad and planned to get Dance Dance Revolution for a little fun with my hubby’s XBox but now he wants to upgrade to a 360 and the last thing we need is an extra game system around the house.December 5, 2005 at 4:10 am #204029

Their are supposedly some copywrite issues, but microsoft is “busy” ironing out the legal issues. Different design company used on 360, or something.

the xbox 360 dethrones the playstation??? i think not.
don’t get me wrong. i looooooooooove my xbox, but so far, there was no need to upgrade. all of the games they make for the 360, they also make for the xbox… and for playstation… so i mean what was the point?
halo 3 is said to be released exclusively for xbox 360, until then i’ll continue to enjoy my original xbox.
also the xbox 360 is competiton for the playstation 3, not the playstation 2. and in comparison the ps3 wins in my opinion.

I will never own anything but an xbox, I love my 360 its so much better than the xbox.
We got the xbox, BIL got ps1
he bought a xbox
He got the psp2, we got xbox 360
he sold both ps1&2 and bought a 360
I love Halo, we finished it the first night course that was on normal. I like Fable, and brute force. and we ahve the xbox mixer and made the xbox a Karaoke machine. we love both and use both all the timeOctober 18, 2006 at 2:18 am #587034
I LOVE our xbox360, mostly for the Media Center capabilities. TIVO without the paying for it every month. We can also play slideshows of our photos with background music on our tv.
My husband’s a Halo fan, and you can’t play Halo on play station. My games of choice are Project Gotham racing games and Madden Football.
