Anyone wanna buy a playstation 1 and a bunch of games? I got HALO and Rallisport Challenge from Sam's club in a package deal with an extra controller, the console, dvd remote for 329$

    I am also thinking of getting one of the "wheels" for the racing games, but I don't know enough about them yet to make a decision on one yet...I am thinking I had better get a 4th controller as well, but should I get another "original" xbox controller or is one of the CATZ ones better or the controller S...

    I have all 3 of the newer systems and like xbox the best. A ton of new games are coming out. I believe around 90 or so between September-December. You will really enjoy it. Halo is very good but you may want to go it first by yourself since your boys are so young. It is rated M, but I didn't think it was too bad.
    Sega gt is coming in around a month. Conflict Desert Storm will be sweet too especially going on killing sprees in Iraq.

    Outlaw Golf is addicting. It has alot of sexual innuendos but my wife loves it.

    MS controller S is a verygood controller. It is alot sturdier feeling than the original.

    I have heard before it was addictive! I am gonna get unreal championship for sure as well. Both of my boys play Unreal Tournament on the computer and my 3 year old is bad ass!!! It cracks me up when we watch him play. He never flinches, he isn't super great, but for 3 years old, he can stay with his 6 year old brother and myself. We have a nice little network set up to play UT, Q3, and a few other games. I am just tired of having to upgrade my computers every little bit so I am gonna get an XBOX.

    On another note, my 3 year old (Jacob) loves the game "Ape escape" for the psx 1, are there any similar titles for XBOX? I heard perhaps Blinx would be kinda sorta similar....

    I prefer the PS2 as well but my friends x-box is pretty fun. It just takes some getting used to. I liked the PS controler bettter before the analog sticks were put there. My hand fit it better that way, but I got used to it.

    The largeness of the controller did worry me at first, but I took both my boys and had them try the original controller and they both did just fine with it. Even my 3 year old had no problem at all. I was afraid he wouldn't be able to get his hands around it, but he played it just fine. As they say, It isn't the size of your unit, it is how you use it...Words to live by

    Get a S controller and all is well. It is smaller than the big one but bigger than ps2.

    Man, these must be midgets complaining about the size of the controller. My six year old sister has now trouble with it. Anyways, I just got this for my birthday last week from my girlfriend, and it kicks ass. I've got Halo, Obi-Wan, and NCAA Football 2003. I'm waiting for a good college basketball game to come out though.
    Light em' up!!!

    Yeah my 3 year old boy with *chubby* hands has no probs with it.
    Is Obi-Wan as cool as it looks? I would like to get them a Star Wars title and the star fighter one looked good as well...
    Crimson skies, Azurik, Unreal Championship, Blinx all look cool. Does anyone know if there are any helicopter games coming out. My youngest likes Commanche 4 on the computer...
