Some Of The Reasons Why The Xbox Has Stayed So Popular Over The Years

May 5, 2008
The first Xbox was released in 2001 and ever since everyone has been on an Xbox gaming binge. So everyone that has an Xbox wants an Xbox 360 and everyone that has a PS2 wants a PS3. Well soon enough did the Xbox 360 come out and the right after the 360 came out the PS3 came out. It is always going to be that way because play station is ahead of Microsoft by a few years but that is only because Microsoft builds and sells software for computers. They are ahead by a lot if you ask me.

The Xbox is a computer itself even though many people do not know that. You can take your Xbox apart and work on it yourself if you know what you are doing. Like me and my friend took apart his Xbox and put a mod chip in it and then he could do all kinds of things with his Xbox. That is why the Xbox 360 already comes like a modded Xbox because that is the way everyone wanted their systems to be. They want them to where you can download a mass amount of songs and info. Even though you cannot play Xbox live on a regular Xbox that has been modded you can still whoop up on your friends that come over and play.

Even though at first people were not impressed by Microsoft's games and its systems. Soon after they had heard what was going on they produced some of the most killer games ever released on a gaming system. Some of those games would be Transworld surf, tony hawk, need for speed underground 2, all of the Rainbow 6 games, all of the Call of Duty games as well as all of the Ghost Recons. All of those games were like games of year for a few years. Like the first Halo that came out for only Xbox was game of the year. So you can not tell me that Xbox isn't a good system.

In 2002 Microsoft made a thing for Xbox called Xbox live. That is a server or servers in which you can get online and play Xbox online with a bunch of people and you could say whatever you wanted to say because you were online and nobody knew who you were. Today everyone is playing on Xbox live for 360 like for Halo 3 and for gears of war and games like that. You will never see someone playing Xbox 360 online playing golf. People want to shoot and kill they want to have fun while playing video games.

Even though the Xbox was cool the Xbox 360 would soon own and everyone would soon hate the PS3. I think the PS3 is the worst system that play station has ever come out with. Who makes a system that cannot play regular DVDs? I mean come on at least make it play both regular DVDs and blue ray disk. That is not cool at all when I first heard that the play station couldn't play regular DVDs I went nuts.
