These. Xbox exclusives were few and far between, but they were fucking great.
Add to it the best version of every console exclusive multiplat of the 6th gen and you've got a great console.

The system was technically pretty impressive, the online was far beyond anything the rivals had and some of the exclusives were pretty damn nice. Too bad it became mostly known as the Halo box, and the already niche exclusives became downright obscure

>best exclusives

Highly debatable.

>HDD standard

If I remember correctly, it didn't do much other than let you use your console for multimedia applications (which, as a 6th gen console, it wasn't very good at) and obfuscate the need for memory cards. There wasn't really a need for HDDs in consoles back then.

>best online service by leaps and bounds

But you had to pay a monthly fee for it.
>>
>>277941417
The HDD helped by cutting down loading times by loading parts of the game in the cache. Games like Doom 3 and Chaos Theory which if you started them up, had and unskippable intro since the game was being loaded into the cache.
>>
>>277941417
>But you had to pay

That's usually what happens if you want quality service and support.
>>
>>277942126

>if I pay for it it must be better quality

The ancient mistake.

MS charged for internet because they thought consumers wouldn't object. How many of your favorite PC games need subscription services to keep official servers up and running?
>>
>>277936294
Jet Set Radio Future, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Gunvalkyrie, Oddworld Stranger's Wrath, Ninja Gaiden Black, Jade Empire, the list goes on
>>
>>277942126
That and the DLC was free unless it was for a game that was published by Microjew.
>>
>>277941092
Damn, do we have an xbox emulator yet?
>>
It caught itself on fire, so that was a plus.
>>
>>277937167
>best exclusives
The reason why we still dont have xbox emulator is because it had no good exclusives that didnt come on PC.
>best version of multiplats 99% of the time
The slight differences dont really matter when it had worse library and exclusives than PS2.
>>
The exclusives at the time. There's a shit load of fucking awesome niche games from Japan, especially from Sega, whom they had a good relationship. It was almost going to have Dreamcast compatibility.

And they made the first workable, streamline console internet service.

And much like the 360 and unlike the Bone, they had the better multiplatforms in terms of performance.

But that toaster controller, man. Jesus.
>>
>>277942896
There is one, but most games refuse to run on it at all, and the number of actually playable games can be counted on one hand

Well, good variety of games from east and west, pushed internal harddrives in a time when that was uncommon but still supported portable memory cards for taking basic save files to your friends houses, 4 player multiplayer as well as up to 16 LAN with System Link. Tried to provide a robust online service, which at the time was probably worth the fee but no longer is. Also typically always had the best multiplatform ports since it was the strongest hardware wise, despite that gen being the last gen where all 3 systems were about on par with each other in that department. Also easy modding

Overall a neat little (lol) system. I love collecting for the thing because no one does. The most expensive/rare games won't run you more than 40-60 if you're only online, usually you can go to a local flea market and guys won't give a shit because no one gives a shit about original Xbox, got myself Starwars Battlefront 2 and Conker for about 5$ a piece hunting through flea markets

Oh, and pic related.

>>277944461
3rd is NES, Master System and Atari 7800
4th is TG16/PCE, SNES, Genesis and Sega CD and Neo Geo
5th is 32x, PS1, N64 and Saturn for the most part.
6th is you should know these

why no sequel?

>>277944740
Breakdown is hard as balls, but worth it for the combat and story.
>>
>>277944740

Breakdown is pretty hard, but it has some of the best first person hand to hand combat ever and a pants on head retarded enough to be good story about NANOMACHINES.

Crimson Skies is one of the best arcade plane games ever.
