Instead of spending $1000 to upgrade my computer to play NFS underground 1
and 2, I'm thinking of buying an Xbox to play them on.

My questions are:
What is a good wheel to use with the Xbox and NFS:U2?
Is the game play different on Xbox? (I play NFS:U on my computer)
Any good websites to get discount prices?

Thanks!

Gary

I haven't played NFSU2 on xbox yet, but I've played NFSU on both.
Gameplay between the two systems was pretty similar, I jumped on xbox
and was able to rip out 40,000 point drifts on my first go as I would
expect on my pc (on a good day :-).

The two biggest differences were graphics and the controller.
Obviously the xbox controler is a lot better than the keyboard I had
been using with my pc.

TV's as I recall use a resolution of 640*480, so my PC at 1024*768
appeared to have more detail. Compensating this was that the xbox had
all graphics options turned on, which wasn't the case on my pc.
Prompted me to turn a few back on in my pc version.

I was of the impression that EA was keeping the different versions of
both games as identical as they could, so that xboxes could play
against PC and versus PS2s, etc. Either that or they don't like
people chopping up their code...

Really rated NFSU, so I was under the impression that EA would balls
up the second version, but I'm fully impressed/addicted to NFSU2.
