I guess this is technology related...
Xbox deflects real bullets (http://www.gamespot.com/all/news/news_6084935.html)

When called to investigate a shooting last Friday night, police in Anne Arundel County, Maryland found an unlikely culprit--an Xbox.
The Baltimore Sun reports that 34-year old Robert Preston Kersey had grown enraged by his roommates constantly playing their Xbox at high volume. According to the police report, Kersey emerged from his bedroom at 2 a.m. brandishing an automatic pistol. Rather than shoot his roommates, Kersey took aim at the offending Xbox and fired a single shot at the console. While the bullet's impact disabled the Xbox, its thick plastic casing deflected the 9mm round, which ricocheted away harmlessly.

Other than the Xbox, no injuries resulted from the incident. Kersey was later booked on two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of destruction of property.

What does that teach us? If you want to be safe from bullets buy an Xbox...

In another news, I used to play with my PS2 along nights. My mother got furious every night.

Due to this reason she picked up the PS2 and was going to throw it away, bu than she listened to my pledge.

"Mom please don&#39;t throw away the PS2, why not throw that X Box (Reckless piece of Tech), if you really want to"

So there you have it, another reason to buy an XBox, you can save your PS2 from being destroyed.

i dont believe that

That&#39;s quite smart M.H.A.Q.S. as an Xbox could probably survive after being thrown out of a window unlike the weak PS2...

December 3rd, 2003, 17:22
yes, because that&#39;s the number one factor that goes to my decission when buying a console. if it can survive being thrown out of a window. <_<

I think X box is the best out of all the consoles, but, I&#39;d rather have a PC

i dunno if youre being sarcastic Badger, but i really do think xbox is the best out of the 4, but a PC is definitly more useful
