X-Box Memory Deal Announced

Bloomberg reported that Micron has signed a six year agreement with Microsoft to provide the DDR SDRAM for the XBox gaming console.
When the console is released in 2001, it will offer 64MB of memory and will be in direct competition with Sony's PlayStation 2, which offers Rambus memory, and Nintendo's Game Cube which is still being developed.
Micron's memory will be somewhat faster than that used by current PCs.

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

microosoft better change the x-box shape, cuz god damn!!! that thing aint gonna fit inside my TV platform and i dont see any economics of the shape either. it's a big space eater, and it's base is about as big as my 21 inch monitor. x-box huh... why not the I-box geez

Microsoft has given us a demo of the X-Box. I have come to the conclution that the PS2, Cube and the outdated Dreamcast are doomed. The X-Box has even signed up the writers of Crash Bandicoot. And I dont thing Money problems will cause this project not to get off the ground. In the end its just going to be PS2 vs X-Box.

What you see below is obviously a poor impression. We are not gay or homosexual in any manner, but rather we are bisexual. However, this prankster is right in one aspect. We are indeed changing the name of the X-Box to XXX-Box. Be sure to see our newest tech demos with men and women sharing bodily fluids. Thank you. - The real Microsoft

First of all for the ppl who said Microsofty makes good games, they don't. They only publish good games (The Madness games...) which means the only talent they have is to pullout the big bucks and to market.For the ppl who think that PS2 is going to rock... You must have forgotten what makes a console good : the GAMES.When is the last time Sony made a good game (or a game at all for that matter)?I agree that the PSX and PS2 have some good games, but these are in limited quantity whereas the N64 and likely the GameCube after it will have great games produced for them by the companies backing them (the Big N, Rare...) and PS2 is supposed to be a bitch to code for, unlike the Cube. The X-box may have good games, but not if Microsofty continues to over-bloat it's software. With disc storage for games, we may be looking at very long load times.Unless maybe somebody licences Zen's TrueX tech(from Kenwood CD-ROMs)...In the end it will be between X-box and The Cube and only the crazed PS fans will not care.BTW: PSuX

The thing you have to realize about corporations is that the way they get products out for various applications is to license and acquire smaller, more specialized companies to produce. The best Microsoft game is Age of Empires (and all relating sequals and expansions) which was actually programmed and coded by Ensemble Studios. Other companies do the same thing; like Sierra working with Valve to produce Half-Life. Sony has PLENTY of great companies supporting their game titles, like Squaresoft which is in my opinion the most superior game producer. Gran Turismo, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy (all of the PS ones) and with PSX 2 we've got Kessen and all the other awesome shit. I have Nintendo, SNES and PSX and i love em all, all have good games. Games which are forever engraved into history; like Mario. Graphics and audio and all that shit is just secondary to gameplay. All console producers have classics and plenty of fans.

Microsoft have finally come up with some piece of decent equipment with all the windows os's being really poor.The x box will be better than sony's ps2 and nentindos game cube. But there is just 1 problem no-one has heard of the x box!!!!!!!!At school i have told many people about the x box and they say what's that?Microsoft have to come up with some advirtisment the make the x box more well known and to tell everyone how good it is and that it will blow sony, nintendo and sega out of the water.The x box looks really good and the graphics look really sweet i think once people know about the x box it will become even more famous than sony's ps2.Can Microsoft finally do something good?We shall find out next year!!!

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

I am one of the technicians at Microsoft and the reason we have not come up with a console earlier is that we have been too busy rooting eachother up the ass. We can no longer deny that all of us at Microsoft are gay, homosexuals who like to rape eachother up the ass. And we are going to put gay pictures on the x-box and have built in gay movies in it. We just could not help ourselves we had to put all the gay stuff into it. But im sure you will all have some fun with the new improved GAY-BOX well i certinaly enjoyed it.

Why do people think Microsoft are gay when every f**ker on the planet uses Windows? Half the people who use Linux have it on as a second operating system with the other being Windows. Mainly because they want to do more than just look at a shit os that can do pretty much f**k all.As for the PS2 its just an overclocked playstation all the added features are is a bigger chip the smooth graphics are all done software side of things. In short its a hyped up pile of wank.Fact is the X-box will be f**king amazing with an nvidia chip and all its power it'll trounce the crappy PS2, and Nintendo dont have a chance of keeping up with the shear money and power that Microsoft have. and if you want games the X-Box will have a gazillion of them what with every games company in the universe backing the thing up.Oh and I do not take it up the butt.Nor give it for that matter.

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

Bow down to Microsoft! I want to see you people build a f**king stable ass feature-packed, compatible OS that will rival Windows 2000 or the upcoming Whistler. If you think Microsoft is so terrible, then just remember you'll probably be working for them one day. Microsoft is doing the EXACT same thing that Sony did, hiring companies to build the components. PS2 uses Rambus memory and all kinds of other shit. Microsoft will do the same thing cept with more money to throw at Nvidia and Micron and all those other necessary component companies. Did you know that the specs call for a sound processor with 64meg of its own RAM while the PS2 only has 2meg? I leave it at that.

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

With regard to the racial shit; give people f**king respect you ass. I don't see you doing much for society you racial f**k, so you should just be thrown into a powerplant and made into something useful instead of making yourself look like a f**king ignorant shit. Give people respect dammit and give people respect for their opinions.

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

i hope you're talking about that other ignorant f**k. Anyway i agree with u totally about x-box. Sony is just living up its hype with all these tombraider gamers here. As soon as the hype is out, they will be just a 300 piece of worthless silicon chips

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

X-box and microsoft are about as cool as licking Gramma's underwear. As for XAN im proud to say that my copy of windows is not authorized and no I dont even use Explorer I have replaced the shell with DARKSTEP which hasnt crashed yet so f**k you XAn you f**ken pussy

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

hey Wuggimasta, i was talkin bout the other guy. I dunno what you people have against the X-Box. You haven't even played the f**king thing nor seen any of its power. Its simply gonna be another choice for gamers, that's what's GOOD for economy, CHOICES. It isn't gonna be like a super dominated market, shit, there are already cemented leaders in the industry that aren't Microsoft. We need huge ass companies throwing money at new technology dammit even if it doesn't work. Like webphones are shit, but i totally respect the line of thinking and the ability to go for something new.

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

I swear, some of the stupidest motherf**kers post here... So lemme muddy the waters with a little bit of fact mixed with a little bit of opinion.The X-Box is spec'd to be a pretty sweet gaming console. By todays standards. But by the time its released, you'll be able to get something just about as powerful in a desktop PC. AMD should be releasing its 762 chipset based motherboards for the Athlon Thunderbird in spring. Mate that with some Micron DDR SDRAM (Actually going to be called PC1600 for 100MHz DDR SDRAM, and PC2100 for 133MHz DDR SDRAM) and you've got the same memory scheme as the X-box. The X-box also has a 600MHz Pentium 3 in it. Yeah... umm... thats great and all, but Theres already 1.2GHz Thunderbirds, and 1.5Ghz Pentium 4's. And as for the genious Imbedded NV25 chip, well, it'll take the cake for a while. But manufacturers have wised up after looking at the x-box's performance with having the video processor embedded into the motherboard. Its a hell of alot faster. Just wait till they get REALLY smart, and start embedding video RAM straight into the core of the chip. Besides, this just goes to show you that technology is already outdated by the time it hits the shelf.-KaoP.S. Sometimes its not just about the graphics. I still keep my old SNES hooked up for those times when I wanna play the original Street Fighter 2, or Chrono Trigger. Hell, sometimes I feel nostalgic enough to bust out my original NES to play some Contra, or River City Ransom. It doesnt always need flashy graphics to make it a good game. (I site Quake for N64. Great graphics, but shitty game play. I'll take a PC's keyboard/mouse combo for a 1st person shooter over that f**kin N64 pad. Too clumbsy)

X-Box Memory Deal Announced

Ya see, Adam, thats the kinda shit that'll get you flamed. I agree with you to a certain degree. Theres always something that can outperform something else at any given time. Which is better for creating music: Using Mixman Studio Pro, which jumbles all the tools you might need into 1 little package, or having the professional synthesizers and studio equipment? The studio equipment schools Mixman.The point is, dont make stupid statements that I can disproove without breaking a sweat. It makes ya look like a dildo.
