Synopsis:

The video game industry has come a long way from those early Pac-Man and Centipede games at the arcade. Just one look at Microsoft's Xbox--the most powerful and popular gaming machine ever created--proves that. With cool 3-D graphics, mind-boggling animation, and devastatingly real audio, Xbox just blows the competition away.

More than 15 million people worldwide own an Xbox system--and that number is growing at a rapid rate. The problem is, these gamers don't have a reliable, all-purpose reference book to help guide them in their quest for that video game triumph: the top score! Until now, that is.

Enter the Xbox Fan Book from O'Reilly, a nifty, four-color guide for new Xbox gamers who want a quick and fun way to learn all the features and capabilities of Microsoft's popular game console so they can get down to the business of dominating the high scores list right away. Thanks to this one-of-a-kind book, Xbox users can learn how to make their favorite piece of hardware even more powerful and fun to use.

With gamer extraordinaire Mark Holt Walker at the helm, the Xbox Fan Book takes you through the basics of using the console, enhancing the multimedia experience, and online play. It also covers must-have games like Halo 2, and accessories like the Xbox DVD Playback Kit. There's virtually nothing Xbox-related that isn't packed into this authoritative guide, and yet, it's accessible enough that you can sit down and read in one afternoon.

Compact, colorful, and loaded with the stuff you need to master your game console, the Xbox Fan Book is the perfect accessory for Xbox gamers of any level.
