Also, note the sales figures:

"The company will also be hoping the strategy will enable it to gain some ground on Sony, its main console rival. Sony has sold 30 million PlayStation 2 consoles compared to 3.5 million Xbox consoles. Nintendo has sold around five million Gamecube machines."

Xbox Live will rule.

Ninja Gaiden Xbox exclusive, CounterStrike coming to Xbox, Halo Online, Unreal Championship, and so much more. 200 games in all due out before the Holiday Season.

I think the Xbox is doing awesome in North America and decently in Europe.
Considering that the PS2 had a 1.5 year head start (less than that in some regions) and tons of killer franchises already, as well as Nintendo's huge franchises, I think the Xbox is doing surprisingly well.

Especially in North America, where the most expensive Xbox outsold the cheaper Gamecube.

You should also read about Blinx in that IGN link above.

It sounds like a revolutionary platformer.

My favorite quote from the IGN article:
All tolled, the Xbox could boast more than 20 titles that have seen sales of 100,000 copies or more compared to the ten 100,000+ titles for the GameCube over the first five months of each system's US run.
