Yeah I had an original xbox. Thing outlasted all 5 of the xbox 360's I had b/c I could take it out of the box and still fire it up.

#103 Posted by Foxdemon2k (261 posts) -

Nope I didn't.

#104 Posted by Manks (836 posts) -

Hellz yeah.

#105 Posted by Sin4profit (3027 posts) -

Nope...After the Sega Genesis's being gang raped by the Sega CD & 32 X ( both of which i shamefully owned ) I turned away from consoles and became a PC only gamer. It was the Xbox 360 that pulled me back into consoles again.

Nope, none of the games on the original XBOX appealed to me but I did have a PS2 and GC!

Sold my PS2 and bought the XBOX. Right after i got the 360 the old one died on me. Talk about luck:P

#110 Posted by silver_DewSky (70 posts) -

Yeah. Sucks i cant trade it in unless i can play more original games on the 360 like Deux Ex and Advent Rising

#111 Posted by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

#112 Posted by WolfODonnell (38 posts) -

Sure, luck... or Microsoft giving random XBOX owners a little extra motivation.

Nope. I actually hated (and still don't like) the Xbox brand from a marketing and business perspective. However, I'm a practical man. The 360 has every game this gen that I want to play except for MGS4 (so far), and the MGS series has gone so far away from gameplay that I can literally watch the entire game through Bittorrent.

Yep, I got my Xbox in 2002.

#115 Posted by purpleinsect (57 posts) -

No I didn't. I just had PS2

#116 Posted by _Horde (839 posts) -

I did not. I had a PS2, though.

#117 Posted by Twisted_Scot (1180 posts) -

Yeah although I preferred my PS2. Now I prefer my X360 so next gen I guess we'll just have to wait and see (tho im not betting heavily on Nintendo ever again.
(Owned ZX Specturm, Amiga, NES, Master system. SNES, Megadrive / genesis, PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, X360, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Gameboy, DS, PSP, Sega handheld that I cant remeber the name & various PCs). Never owned a Dream-cast tho :(

Totally. It was no 360 but there were some great games on it.

I won one in a competition about a year before the 360 came out, but at this point I had a big PS2 Collection and instead sold the Xbox and bought a bunch of PS2 games.

Yes. My PS2 broke so I made the switch. Games like Chaos Theory made me happy to have one, that and the best platform version of GTA III.

#124 Posted by SgtGrumbles (1024 posts) -

Nope I had everything but the original Xbox at the time.

#125 Posted by ZebN (41 posts) -

I did and still have it hooked up.  
My PS2 got more overall play the last generation but I spent a helluva lot of time playing Halo/Halo 2 and the KOTOR games.  Burnout 3 and Ninja Gaiden Black were pretty damn good as well.

#126 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

Yes I did, I would always play the Splinter Cell games on it because the PC/Xbox versions were always the best. 

#127 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

I bought the X360 in 2008. For my birthday, my friends gave me the 'original' Xbox in 2007. So, yeah, I guess...
#128 Posted by SMTDante89 (2603 posts) -

Nope, never owned the original Xbox.

#129 Posted by Vexxan (4619 posts) -

Yes but I sold it just before I got the 360.

#130 Posted by Jeffsekai (7058 posts) -

Yup, way better than the PS2

#131 Posted by miniturehero (26 posts) -

Yeah, played a ton of Halo CE and 2, Brothers in Arms and Splinter Cell

#132 Posted by Juicebox (485 posts) -

yes before that i have a gamecube and before that nothing but nintendo consoles.
i kinda dislike Sony strongly and would never buy anything from that copycat company :)

Talk about reviving an old thread. 
Interesting fact: I got a 360 in 2007. I bought an original Xbox on the cheap off of EBay in summer of '09. Why, you ask? Because at that point I really wanted a console to mod. I did that, too, and even put a 40GB hard drive in it. Fun days. 
I used it to play some Super NES and GBA games, by the way. I played some original Xbox games on it, but not a whole lot of them. KOTOR 2 is on there, I have yet to really play it though. For now, it's in my closet. Still works, don't really care for it. I don't regret spending $30 on it, though.

#135 Posted by yoshimitz707 (2453 posts) -

Yeah, I totally did. And the only game I bought for it was Fable!

#136 Posted by magimix (55 posts) -

I did not have an XBOX prior to getting a 360. Moreover, 360 is the first games console I've ever owned. Hell, prior to nabbing a 360, my only exposure to consoles was playing on a Megadrive once, about 20 years ago.

#137 Posted by MisterChief (833 posts) -

I had one and it was pretty much exclusively a Halo box.

#138 Posted by TheKing (844 posts) -

Had all three last gen, same for this one.

#139 Posted by MeierTheRed (4942 posts) -

Yes i did, also had Gold account. Which is kind of weird to think about now, it pretty much only let you play online games, the service was pretty limited.

#140 Posted by Gargantuan (1887 posts) -

Yes. I own a Sega Megadrive, Xbox, Xbox 360 and a PS3. I was primarily a PC gamer until I got a Xbox.

#141 Posted by jamesisaacs (221 posts) -

Yep i try to get as many consoles as possible i don't wanna miss out.

#142 Posted by Kandycane2029 (511 posts) -

Yup. Only played KOTOR, Halo 1 and 2, and uh..... That was it, I guess.

#143 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -
I did yeah, have a bit of a soft spot for it actually.
#144 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2327 posts) -

I did but only a few months before I got my 360.

#145 Posted by Gamer_152 (14126 posts) -

No, I didn't and I doubt I would have enjoyed that much on the original Xbox besides the Halo games.

#146 Posted by ClaritySam (624 posts) -

Yep, I had a see through one which gave me many hours of Morrowind based enjoyment.  The Warriors game was also really good. 

#147 Posted by pweidman (2384 posts) -

Yeah, for almost 4 years prior to being able to finally get a 360 in early 06. Many great games back then, and Halo was just the beginning.

#148 Posted by Mats (130 posts) -

Yep. And It died shortly after the 360 launched.

#149 Posted by Super_Yosh_64 (126 posts) -

had both on day one 
i don't know what 8th grade would have been without halo 2 and live

#150 Posted by JTB123 (1044 posts) -

Sure did, Ninja Gaiden Black virtually never left the thing until a couple of years ago.
