    I hope this is in the right forum. Here goes....


    Do you think it would work? Or do you have to buy the one Sony makes for it? Someone on another board is going to try it since all the pins match up but the HD he was using is dead.

    if they use a standard drive then it should work. the software on the drive is another problem.

    There is probably some little thing built in that makes it so you have to buy the Sony one.

    I would be more surprised if the PS2 was like that than if the XBox was like that (I'm sure it's a given that you have to buy everything short of controllers and memory cards direct from Microsoft).

    Where did you get that picture?

    When it comes to accesories for the X-Box, there are plenty of 3rd party ones, for just about every part, memory cards(Worthless since XBox has built in HDD), Controllers, A/V cables, and other srange items, the only M$ only one is the DVD remote and plug thingy.

    Uhuh, now stick a gamecube in there too :nya:.

    I tried to find that MacHall comic with them playing an XBox controller sitting on their lap... to no avail. Of course I'm lazy.

    Damn that thing is huge... But you gotta remember that it has a built in hard drive and modem if i remember correct. They did release a new controller that is much smaller though. I still think XBox is gay.... Now Xbox-2 is something to look forward to. Wonder how they plan on competing with this.

    Im not sure if all this is even confirmed... this site is also known for rumors...

    wow. :rofl: that is so cool.

    xBox is just a freak. Freak of nature. I had no idea that the controller was that big.

    I hate SCPH-30001(earlier PS2 model). Hate it soo much. It won't read any of my games now, but yet the system still works in itself. PS3 is gonna own so bad... especially now that I and thousands of others have sort of a "say" in what sony does. (private sony survey/disc. group program i was invited to.)

    i'd type longer... i'm in school though. :yawn:
