    Actually I was just wondering that have someone compiled any emulators for xbox. I guess they have. However you cannot play PC-games with xbox and I am quite sure that xbox360 can't emulate ps3, because they are nearly equally. However PC will be able to emulate those(In theory and in practise, if just someone makes emulator for those.).

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned is patches. PC games can be patched, console games can't. There was a bug in the Xbox version of Morrowind that affected some people. One quest had a death sentence put on you, and you were unable to enter most towns without being killed. On completion of the quest the death sentence was supposed to be lifted, except in some cases it wasn't making it impossible to complete the game. The PC version was patched, on the Xbox you were screwed since it couldn't be patched.

    Granted that most console games don't require a patch, but if they do then unless they are on Xbox Live, which many are not, there is no way to patch them unless they reissue the physical media. With the 360 coming without a hard drive on some models, even that path to patch games is lost.

    The point of System link is to play games with your friends NOT strangers on internet. Let say I have a group of friends like 12 or more ppl. And we want to play games (ex:halo2) together on the weekend. So we setup 6-8 xbox in local network at someone's house. After 4-5 round of shooting. We are having fun and getting hungry. Then call to a Pizza store and get them delivery. Then we eat, drink and talk about the game. It is a game party fun fun fun all night long on the weekend. That are the greatest part of Xbox. With PC, I'm you guys don't have that Spirit.

    If I want to play with friends and strangers on internet, I got Live, Xlink, Xbconnect. Then what, I go to sleep. This is what you guys have on PC.

    A little bit about emulators. Xbox got everything except PS2 and Gamecube. I know PC has all include PS2 and Gamecube. But the games are not running smoothly or sometimes dont even load. So how do you play? LOL.

    Uhm, you can do that. Its called LAN-party, when you get your PC:s to local network in someones house. Ppl do it all the time with PCs. Theres also some HC-parties like assembly. Thousands of ppl in same area, playing, coding, doing all the stuff with their own PC:s. And you said we don't have that Spirit. ;)

    Only true gamers say that. LOL. I love PC games. The only bad thing about pc is you need to keep upgrade your computer every 4 or 5years. But that's same with console. I don't understand how people can buy console when there's a pc!!!!!

    PC RuleZ!!!

    I wouldnt ever consider another console got a ps2 with about 100 games and you know how with a PC. PCs are great for everything.

    Dont know what thats all about?

    but with the right controller you can plug it into your USB and play your Grand Theft Auto's , racing games, etc. In my opinion PC is the best for any game why play a game on console when you can play it on PC with 10x better graphics. Yeah PC is expensive but its way worth it. Youll get your moneys worth plus a little extra. The gaming experience is priceless! So for all the people who have not tried PC gaming or do no want to. You are missing out bigtime.

    I think console is like a mini pc but you can only play games.You can't surt the web,downlaod music,chat,video,burn movies,burn games,email,word and etc..... They are so many advanages with pc. I don't think that pc cost so much more. Not to mention pc games are cheaper.

    Ok. You guys kick my ass here. I'm in your side now. I just got the adapters for xbox controllers and ps2 controllers to connect to PC through USB ports. I'm not used to keyboard and mouse to play game. I start playing Halopc, my first game on PC. But I hate the auto aim.

    Well my pc is not good enough. It wont be able to load Doom. It gave errors. But Halo is ok. Hmm.... maybe my video card. I have 1GB memory.

    I think he meant on a pc. Well i don't like to use controlle because you have better aim with mouse and you make a lot faster turns.
    LOL, that is so true. and My moded xbox costed $450. which was so expensive.

    After a couple of days playing halopc, I can see why you guys refer mouse and keyboard over xbox and ps2 controllers. With mouse and key board, you just point and shoot. Plus it got auto aim so 100% hit target. Look like you dont need experiences in aiming. Just move your mouse quickly to the head and shoot. If I use xbox and ps2 controllers, it is much slower to aim and I get killed by that time.

    Playing halo on xbox is different. You have to aim inorder to hit target. Even you aim at the ear, you still miss the target. So if you are a great shooter, you have a lot of experiences with aiming and shooting.
