Ten things to hate about the Xbox 360 -- Posted by XanTium on December 7 19:53 EST
CNET's David Carnoy wrote an article about 10 things he 'hates' about the new Xbox 360. It's a bit different then those "all good" reviews we've been seeing over the last few weeks:
1. Beige isn't the new black
2. No killer games at launch
3. Accessories cost a small fortune
4. The hard drive isn't big enough
5. Limited keyboard/mouse support at launch
6. No built-in Wi-Fi
7. Not enough USB ports, especially on the back
8. No HDMI or DVI connectivity
9. No built-in card reader
10. You can't get it.

Read the whole article on cnet.com.

8. No HDMI or DVI connectivity

That's the one I agree with the most!

He forgot:

No video play back without MCE.
No divx/xvid support

The fact that its so glitchy and plain old fucked up, with WAY WAY WAY too many errors.

I think MS really screwed up big time. Next-gen console, more like Next-Gen problems.

I think the X360 might actually be worth it.... once it gets modded. I like customizing my games and using my own ideas instead of stealing them and making them worse. *cough*... Until then, I'll stick with my modded XBox, modded PS2, and homebrew apps on PSP. Thank you.

messed up on the cube? meh, why, nintendo have always been after a different audience/target genre than xbox or ps2. cube is an awesome machine for what it is & the price, around 99AUD(60USD aprox). which is nothing if you love the old school mario/zelda/metroid games.

although i can agree with a few of the arguments, the rest seem to be more petty bs. many of the arguements coulda been replaced with something more valid.

9. No built-in card reader

I think those are complete crap. Limited keyboard/mouse support? It's a console! And It's got 3 usb ports! Why would you need more then that? Most computers don't have "built-in card readers". Why would a gameing console...? I hope this guy dies.
