As far as what I think of the XBOX, I can see a definite performance advantage over the PS2, which is a great system. The PS2 displays 25-35 frames a second and the XBOX gets into the high 60's which is just incredible. It has a 10GB Hard Drive (no need for a memory card) to keep your gameplay, a 733Intel chip and the most awesome NVidia 64MB video card and DDR Ram. It weighs almost ten pounds and uses a scaled down version of Windows 2000, can you believe that? IMO, the PlayStation 2 gets a rating of 8, the XBOX gets a 9 (not 10 bacause the game selection still sucks).
The mirrored images are hokey, you're right about that! I've played Halo and not DOA 3, Halo's graphics are astounding but it doesn't interest me.
