doont start with the "its made by microsoft and has heaps of poota parts in it." BULLSHIT its like got one thing from pootas after that its 100% console and all who say not ill shove an xbox controller where the sun dont shine and judging by how chunky they r u dont want that.
... it shares 99% of its architecture with a modern PC. But the Xbox lacks some PC components (keyboard and mouse interfaces, PC-like BIOS, ...), has some others in addition (a controller for buttons, LEDs, ...) and differs in implementation in some aspects (kernel in ROM, boot sequence, hard disk partitioning, timer frequency, shutdown, ...)

Im gonna _really_ regret this but ... An XBox IS a computer. It has almost total computer parts. There is a PIII chip, there is a (kinda) normal HDD, there is RAM, there are USB ports. Hell, people even have x86 versions of Linux running on it. Its _pretty_much_ a standard PC.
hey harley why dont u shut up i just started readin and u said at the start that its impossible to play a fps on a console yet u have played halo some
It is indeed possible to play an FPS on a console. However. Nothing can match the precision of a mouse/keyboard combo. You dont get that sort of control with ANY sort of gamepad.
On a side note, Halo was originally developed for PC. It uses DirectX as do all other XBox games. There is very little difference on the programming side of things (it would take only a couple of days to get a straight alpha or beta port of Halo on to the PC). The reason that games such as Halo arent released for PC are mostly political or managerial.
