The Xbox, Microsoft first attempt at a home console gaming system, and what a
system it is. Expected to fail easily at the hands of Nintendo and Sony, the
Xbox broke into the market and secured a clean second place above veteran
company Nintendo. Microsoft acheived this by stressing thrid-party support and
making key advertisement and developer purchase decidions.

The Xbox started as a thought of some Microsoft employee's. Seamus Blackley
was the first to really push the console. And on March 10, 2000, Bill Gates
announced the Xbox at the Game Developers Conference. Originally, the prototype
for the Xbox was quite...bulky. It was a large silver X that ran for about 5 to
10 minutes before overheating. The design was quickly worked on.

When it was all said and done, Xbox was still pretty big. But it came out as a
powerhouse. Much more powerful than the PS2, and more capable(hardware-wise)
than Gamecube.

Now with over 500 games and a fully-capable and awesome online service, Xbox is
THE way to game.

There are many different third and first-party controllers for the Xbox, here's
a list and explanation of the first party controllers and some of the third
party ones that I recommend.

First Party ~ 

=="Duke Controller"==

Price - (NOTE:almost impossible to find new)New: $30 - Used: $15-
Cord - 10 feet
Vibration - Yes
Turbo - No
Slow - No
Breakaway Cable - Yes
Card Slots - 2

The Duke controller is very large and heavy. Though, due to this it is also
extremely sturdy. This thing could go through a nuke and maybe have a scratch.
The button placement is slightly curved. The start and back buttons are a just
a little hard to reach.

=="Controller S"==

Price - New: $30 - Used: $15-
Cord - 10 feet
Vibration - Yes
Turbo - No
Slow - No
Breakaway Cable - Yes
Card Slots - 2

The S is the preffered controller of Xbox owners. It's liked because of the
fact that it has the durability of a first party controller, and that it is
much much smaller than the duke. The controller S is actually the Japanese Xbox
launch controller, ported over to America and Europe. The Controller S also
comes in 3 different colors, black, green and blue, so that's a plus.

Third Party ~ [NOTE: If the readers could send in info about their 3rd party
                     pads, it would help me and the rest of us a lot. I will
                     put your name in the credits section if you do so. So fill
                     out the info, include what you would like to be called and
                     a short review, thanks!]


Price - New: $15 - Used: $5-
Cord - 10 feet
Vibration - Yes
Turbo - No
Slow - No
Breakaway Cable - Yes
Card Slots - 2

This controller bites. It broke on me a few days after I got it, the tirggers
stuck, and the buttons were always sticky. Highly NOT recommended.


Price - New: $15 - Used: $5-     (I got this one for free, know where to look)
Cord - 10 feet
Vibration - Yes
Turbo - Yes
Slow - No
Breakaway Cable - No
Card Slots - 2

Cool concept, a retractable cord for easy portability. Too bad it sucks. The
controllers design is just horrible. Designed after the "Duke", but it has a
lot of sharp edges, which makes it just downright uncomfortable to play with,
and the triggers will KILL your fingers. Plus, if you accidentely even touch
the retract button during gameplay, it gives you a "Controller is out"; error.


The Xbox remote is purchased so that you can play DVD movies on your Xbox. It
comes in the form of a little dongle that goes into your controller port, which
acts as the receiver. The Xbox DVD player is actually really nice, with an
in-movie picture menu and everything.

The remote has always been $35, which is pretty steep, but some places do sell
it for cheaper.


They sell it for $25

     C.Microphones   [NOTE: again, I could use help with reviews for these]

There are many different kinds of microphones, these are used for certain
games with voice recognition(Rainbow Six 3) and for online play to communicate
with teammates. Microphones are also very expensive for a good replacement.

In order from best to worst(in my experience):

   Halo 2 Headset:

Best headset with the best quality and it does go around or over your head.
The price is very steep though.

   Stock headset:
          [no link]

It comes with the starter kit, has the second best quality, but the behind-the
head setup makes it hard to lean back on something while playing.

   Wireless Headset:

VERY pricey, but it's the only really good wireless headset. Appearantly, this
also has some voice lag, which means that you not only get the lag from the
voice going over the net, but lag to it getting registered.

   Headcom headset:

Good quality, and the price is unbeatable.

   Hip Headset:

More pricey, better quality.


Really crappy in quality, and just let's whoever you know listen in. Not

     D.Memory Cards   [NOTE: Same as before, send in your reviews]

Memory cards are all practically the same.

8mb First Party - Good storage. Fits with controller look.

MAX Drive - A nifty device that lets you backup all your saves to your PC and
download new saves from sites like GameFaqs(the one you are probably on). The
device comes in 16MB, 32MB and 64MB storage for ultra-holding capabilities.
Combined with your PC, you will likely have unlimited game save potential.

     E.Cables   [NOTE: Same]

   Replacement Xbox Power Cord - This is actually required for older Xboxs to
prevent fire. You can order it from Xbox Customer Care for free.

   High-Def AV pack:

Good AV pack for Xbox, allows you to use your high-definition TV.

   RF Cables:

Allow you to still be able to have a picture if you have an older TV with no
AV cable slots.


   Link Cable:

Allows you to link your Xbox to another Xbox without a router.

   DVD cleaner:

Supposed to work well, good if you neglect your games.

     A.Hard Drive
The HDD's in the Xbox are used for various things, such as cacheing game data
for shorter loading screens, to saving your games. There are different sizes
of the HDD depending on what model you have. The HDD sizes go from the 8gb to
20gb in size. Probably due to Microsoft being able to cut costs for bigger HDD

The Dashboard Consists of a few areas

1. Memory - This is where you can manage all of your games saves. You can copy
and paste them on your memory cards, of copy from memory cards to the HDD. You
can also mangae Live gamertags like this.
2. Music - This is a shortcut to find your music that you have ripped to your
Xbox HDD. 
3. Settings - In this you can change:
4. Xbox Live - 

     C.CD Ripping

     D.Xbox Music Mixer

The Xbox Music Mixer is a karoake/media add-on for the Xbox.

 -What can I do with an Xbox Music Mixer?

You can:
+Tranfer .mp3 and .wma music files
+Transfer .jpeg/.jpg files


-Karoake? Explain.

Well, sorta. When you transfer your /wma/.mp3 files to your Xbox, you can play
them in music mixer and sing along, though they won't have lyrics to read off
of, which makes it extremely hard to perform a song unless you know it by

-So then no karoake with words?

Wrong. You can DL songs with words, but of course, it is limited, so you won't
see any of your favourite non chart-topping songs on there.

-What is the advantage of Music Mixer over the CD ripping?

With Music Mixer, you can create playlists, and it has way better visualization

-Okay, I am interested now. How do you transfer music?

You use the tool on this page:

-What OS is this for?!?!?!?

Windows XP ONLY. So any Mac/Linux/old Windows users out there are screwed.

     E.Xbox Media Center Extender

What's this? Xbox Media Center? What is this tool you speak of? Well, as put
by CJay himself, most Xbox owners don't know this thing exists. This is an
add-on for the Xbox that gives your Xbox a legal way to be half-way to being


Q:What do I need to use this?
A:A PC with Windows XP - Media Center Edition.

Q:What does this come with?
-A remote control	
-An infrared receiver
-Setup guide
-Media Center Extender for Xbox DVD
-Media Center Extender for Xbox setup CD (one time install on your Media Center
-2 AA batteries
-Networking poster

Q:What exactly can you do with this device?
A:Quite a lot. Once you have networked your PC to your Xbox using this device,
you can stream just about anything to your Xbox.

Q:Stream? Explain.
A:This is what the Xbox Media Center Extender is. Once you put the disc in the
Xbox DVD drive and have the console networked to your PC running Windows XP
Media Center Edition, you can stream anything from the said PC through your
Xbox onto your TV monitor.

Q:So, what's the difference between this and just getting a video card with
TV/out and a TV tuner?
A:With this, you can stay online via Xbox Live and make sure you don't miss a
single invite. Also, you arean't limited by hardware. If you don't have a DVD
drive on your PC, but have Windows XP Media Center Edition, the Xbox works as
your DVD player, and on a bigger screen.

Q:What other features does this have?
A:Built-in Windows Messenger, internet radio.

Q:Exactly what kind of media can be streamed?
A:Many types:
-Most music formats(.mp3, .wma, .wav to name a few major ones)
-Most video formats(.wmv, .wpg, .avi to name a few major ones)
-Pictures(.jpg, .png, .bmp to name a few)

Q;Any premium services?
A:Yes, if you subscribe, you can also get video on-demand, news on-demand and
sports on-demand.

Q:Okay, I got one, how do I set it up?
*from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/mediacenter/evaluation/devices/setup/

The Windows Media Center Extender for Xbox kit contains software and hardware 
that turns your existing Xbox console into a Media Center Extender, which can 
pull entertainment content and functionality from the host Media Center PC over
a home network. The set-up instructions below assume that you already have an 
Xbox connected to a TV display and a home network. The setup process will 
connect the Xbox to the Media Center PC, where all the entertainment content is
stored, and recognize the Xbox as an approved user and give the console access 
to all the Extender supported media.

Setup Instructions
Step #1: Check your network and Media Center PC

The PC running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and the Xbox console must 
be connected to either a wired (Ethernet) or wireless network. Before you 
continue, the network must be working. Below are the two supported options for 
home networking.

-If you have a wired network:

Connect the Xbox to the network via the included Ethernet connection on the 
back of the console.

-If you have a wireless network:

You will also require a wireless adaptor (sold separately) to connect the 
console to the home network. For the optimal wireless experience, ensure that 
this adapter and the home network router or access point are Xbox compatible. 
For more information on wireless hardware that is Xbox compatible, read. Xbox 
Live: Routers and Wireless Bridges.

Some wireless networks use security protocols such as Wired Equivalent Privacy

Additional information about your network might be required when you run the 
Media Center Extender for Xbox Setup CD on your Media Center PC.

For detailed information on how to hook your Xbox console to the Internet and 
the home network, see Wireless Connection to Xbox Live.
Step #2: Insert the batteries in the Media Center Extender for Xbox remote 
Step #3: Insert the infrared receiver into a game port on the front of the 
Xbox console.
Step #4: Install the Media Center Extender for Xbox Setup CD on the host Media 
Center PC.
Step #5: Follow the set up instructions on the screen.

You'll need to write down your set-up key and have the Media Center Extender 
CD ready.

-Setup for more than one Extender

Up to 5 Media Center Extender devices can be connected to the Media Center PC 
at one time depending on the PC configuration. The following table shows how 
many Extenders — including Extender for Xbox- different configurations support.

System specs:
Extender devices	Media Center PC CPU speed	Media Center PC Memory

1                              2.8 GHz                        256 MB

2                              2.8 GHz                        512 MB

3 - 5                          3.4 GHz                         1 GB

For example, if you want to have 2 Extenders, your Media Center PC should have 
a CPU speed of 2.8GHz and 512 MB RAM. You may want to consider an Ethernet 
(wired) connection for a deployment that will use more than one Extender.

     A.LAN/Tunneled Play/Online

LAN Play - LAN play can support up to 16 characters. To do this, you either use
the system link cables(in the Misc. section of accesories), or you can use a
hub. Hubs act like router, just splitting the connection. You plug the hub in
and then connect ethernet cables from the hub to the desired Xboxs.

Tunneled Play - Tunneled play basically tricks your Xbox into thinking you are
playing a LAN game, while you are really playing the game online.


This is a popular form of playing online without Xbox Live. There's a lot more
variety on XBConnect, they play more games than just Halo. It also has
dedicated servers, unlike the competitions, which is spread.

GameSpy Arcade:

GameSpy arcade is an all-around program, with an Xbox tunnel add-on. Usually,
they only play Halo anyways.

     B.Xbox Live!

Xbox Live! is Microsoft first party online software. In Xbox Live you can:
-Play online with freinds
-Post scores on leaderboards
-Message freinds
-Chat in chat rooms
-Download new content for games
-More ect.

Xbox Live either costs $50 a year or $5.95 a month. $5.95 a month equals
~$71 a year. So obviously, unless you don't plan to have Xbox Live for a full
year, then the $50 a year is the better deal.

General rules of keeping your Xbox safe:
-Keep it off the floor
-Keep it off carpet
-Don't put it near a monitor(electrical surges)
-Do not put it right next to where it's plugged in
     As much as it is tempting, DO NOT DO IT. I persoanlly know some really
     good Xboxs ruined by a spilt Pepsi.

-Call 1-800-4-My-XBOX
-Navigate the menu
-Talk to the freindly customer service
-Get your Xbox sent in

In my experiences, it takes about 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox sent back to you
after sending it in.

Q: Xbox drives?!?!?!?!?!
A:The Xbox has had 3 different DVD drives. The Samsung, Thompson and Phillips.

Samsung - Best
Phillips - 2nd
Thomson - 3rd
Hitachi- Worst

For some reason, others(and myself) have had troubles with DDE's with a 
Thompson drive. Other's work just fine. Anyways, here is a site that has pics
of all the DVD Drives:


What is the Hitachi drive? Well, it is a drive that was co-developed with
Samsung and Hitachi. It looks exactly like the Samsung drive, but comes with
brand-spanking-new and annoying as hell firmware. Basically, it is impossible
to rip CDs to it. As I said before, Vertabrim will be your best bet for these,
but I have not tested this firsthand.
