## 8-bit analogue buttons?

What does "six 8-bit analog action buttons" mean? Analogue buttons do not have bits. Should it be six analogue input ports with 8-bit ADCs? Sigmundg (talk) 22:56, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Analog(ue) in this instance doesn't really refer to analogue electronics (although I suppose that's what the buttons would be) but rather analogue control (which is somewhat of a misnomer, but one that also applies to analog sticks). I believe a better description would probably be "six pressure-sensitive buttons read with a bit depth of 8" or something to that effect, although that doesn't really roll off the tongue.

A bit dept (wordlength) of 8 bits means that there will be $2^8=256$ different positions, which does not make sense for pressure buttons (it would make sense if applied to ADC for a joystik input). If they are pressure buttons then they will have two positions (out and in), corresponding to a single bit. I have never seen this control (nor an xBox), which is why I ask. Perhaps somebody with an xBox could enlighten us? --Sigmundg (talk) 00:36, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
While I agree it doesn't make that much sense to use 8-bit precision (256 "positions") on a button (since there is no way for the user to be even close to that precise), I think that is what it means. While I don't have much experience of the Xbox side of things, the DualShock 2, Sixaxis and DualShock 3 PlayStation 2/3 controllers, which use a similar setup, I am familiar with. Basically, the harder you press the button, the more it registers. For example, in Wipeout HD, where the triggers are used for the air brakes, the X button is used as the accelerator, and takes advantage of the pressure-sensitive nature of the button to provide variable acceleration, depending on how hard the player presses down on it.

## Error?

Please Add A "Technical Problems" Section As The Xbox Origanal Also Had The RROD — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.71.217.106 (talk) 01:06, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

The original Xbox didn't even have a ring of light, so how exactly did it have a Red Ring of Death? Regardless, as far as I am aware there were no major technical problems with the original Xbox, so a "technical problems" section is unwarranted.

P.S. There is no need to start every word with a capital letter - in English only sentence-initial words and proper nouns are capitalised (with a few exceptions such as adjectives derived from proper nouns, e.g. "English" in "that was a very English thing to say").

## Edit request on 21 February 2013

The line "Xbox Live servers were shut down on April 15, 2010," is incorrect as Live is still fully functional, just not on the original Xbox. 207.62.151.77 (talk) 02:46, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Just a note to other editors. I'm fixing this, but the ref is to a landing page so need to sort that out as well. - X201 (talk) 09:01, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
Done - Microsoft have emptied their Xbox news archive of anything prior to December 2011. So I needed to find a new ref. All sorted now. -X201 (talk) 09:16, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

## Edit request on 26 February 2013

States the Jaguar was the last official american console before the Xbox. That is an error, that would be the Nuon.

Please give a reliable source to confirm your claim. Camyoung54 talk 02:05, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

## Proposed move

There is a proposed move discussion that involves this article. - X201 (talk) 10:22, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

## Move discussion in progress

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Xbox (series) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 05:15, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

## Fatty cite for controller name

It's a bad cite. It proves nothing beyond one IGN editor using that name and he even says right there that it's not a 'specific public name'.76.226.119.86 (talk) 22:00, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

## Sales figures

Someone said that the console sold only 550,000 in Japan, not two million. I believe that sources are needed for accuracy of sales. Same for the rest of the regions. --George Ho (talk) 20:36, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

## Operating System

Under the Operating System section it states that the Xbox's operating system was **not** based on Windows NT/2000, but in the info box it says that it was based on Windows XP. Shouldn't one of these be corrected? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.98.204.22 (talk) 00:48, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

## 2 million in japan?

Is there a source to this. Common statements has the Xbox below 1 million in japan. Japanese media also consistently reports the Xbox 360 is the highest selling Xbox in japan, so this number is fishy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leeroyhim (talkcontribs) 16:37, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

## Xbox used by many
