Default Something I just noticed that's sorta strange.

Wow, xbox used an nVidia graphics card, whilst the xbox 360 uses an ATi, what's up with that? Maybe they aren't selling any games because nVidia has to get some of the profits, and they cut off trade with them? Either way, this was a bad year for ATi, compared to nVidia, why go to the under dog?

Because they want money. Did you see the figures on how much the XBOX 360 made? Holt moley that was a lot. That's why ATi went to MS, to get more money on the XBOX 360.

Yeah, I dunno why Microsoft went with ATI...I think nVIDIA goes get some money from the emulation issue. Since the original Xbox used a nVIDIA chip, all the original Xbox games are developed around that chip, so when you try to run it on the Xbox 360's ATi chip it won't work. So the emulation files require some of the Xbox's software to run properly. It was only a bad year for ATI because if their paper launches. The products they've launched are very good.
