i should mention i dont own an xbox and havent had a console since n64.
Consoles are fun when - oh wait they never are.
ps3 is good for watching movies

you lot can laugh and sneer at consoles, but dont forget that quake3 was available on dreamcast back in the day and it worked fine. Of course it is better on pc but that doesnt mean a console version will be unplayable, or that it wont earn its own following, some of whom may eventually feel the need to come to pc land to play properly. There are absolutely loads of ppl playing PC quakelive who started out on the dreamcast version.
you do realize that a new x-box game looks far far worse than a new pc title, do you?

every cheap a** pc i buy today blows the xbox away... easily..
and for your mouse/keyboard thingy:
THIS is the reason u will NEVER be able to use your mouse/KB on multiplayer shooters (or MP games in general) on XBOX. and yes, i know there are HW hacks to use KB/mouse, but they just don't work right/u'll get banned.
even IF u would be able to use your KB/mouse on XBOX for QL.. how do you overclock your USB ports for the mouse?
how do you set the refreshrate for your tv to 120 hz? and so on...
you see where i'm aiming towards? quake is just a pc shooter, was often ported to consoles, was fun, never anything more.
i mean, your point is valid, and in essence a nice idea, but it just wouldn't work imo
Again, you are wrong. You fail to see the difference.

Run them side by side and PAY ATTENTION.
There are vast swaths of things that are 'toned down' for the xbox build. The render distance, the detail in the textures,shader complexity the amount of things it will allow to spawn nearby at the same time, the level of complexity in the models, and unknown tweaks and changes in the base code.
An xbox does not magicly have the power to be top-notch all the time. Sure you stick a disk in and play,. but don't go off thinking that means its somehow keeping spec with a PC that was built years after the xbox came out.
MOST big title PC games are built with a FUTURE HARDWARE mindset. Oblivion is one of them, when it first came out /nobody/ could really run it well at 'full scope', it was designed that way. The idea being that as the game sits on the shelves and computers 'catch up', the game retains a lot of its visual luster without falling behind.
Sure you can RUN the game when it first comes out, and sure, its going to have more power and ability than an xbox, but just hitting the 'max settings' button and then 'play' and expecting it to run on a year old machine just perfect is plain silly, and makes me think you are either Duuurrrrka?, or trolling.
FFS, when Q3A first came out nobody was running it at 'full spec', people turned the graphics down to a happy medium between graphics and performance. Hell, back then most people didn't even have OPEN GL SUPPORT :P Setting the settings to MAXOMGPOLYGODS! is good for two things: screenshots, and flexing your machine to the max if it can take it.
It's not exactly a 'requirement' to push all the sliders all the way to the right.. Tone it back some, you may find yourself playing more games.. :P
You are still doing it wrong.
Men, I exchange my DEFENDER GAME RACER TURBO GT in xbox 360, thay say the last is appropriate on quakelive, but no effect. Suggest me what's wrong? operating system is Win 7. It found xbox 360 itself. Othe games are playing
