I'm looking to buy a game console (my first) to possibly play some older games on. There is no hi-speed internet connection available so it will probably be 100% single player.

 

I've no problem buying a used machine.

 

I do want to use my HD TV though. Do older boxes require some sort of retro connections no longer included on newer TV's?

 

I'm currently enjoying Call of Duty 1 and 2, Medal of Honor, and Far Cry. They're old but fun for me.

 

Thanks.

 

I've been thinking "XBox" non 360.

xbox doesn't even produce an HD picture. I think it has component cables, which most HD TVs have, so you should be able to hook it up no problem.

I guess it might boil down to the games I would want to be playing.

As they will probably all be single player, and therefore older, their graphics might not be anywhere near what my HD tv can produce....so an older xbox might be OK.

Is there some sort of console tipping point where it would be useless to have a particular internet related feature found in the newer consoles?

Which would be the next step up from the original xbox?

Thanks.

I'm looking for a good website for research.

the graphics wll be bad.  I suppose you have played the 360 one, going back to play non 360 will be like going to the 1980s
