Detailed review
An okay system. Mostly used mine for LAN parties on Halo. In fact the Halo series probably saved Microsoft's console industry. Halo definitely established the Xbox as the console for FPS's, no offensive to the the PS3 owners, I am one myself. A few other decent titles were Crimson Skies and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath. Personally liked playing Burnout 3 on the Xbox as well. Also the original L controllers were very awkward. Definitely a good idea on Microsoft's behalf to starting sending them out with the S controllers. Probably the best use for this system was to hack it and use it as a media center.
