    To me i would pick PS2 I dont think X-Box has a great feature. Not to mention PS2 games are better. It is also coming out with UFC Takedown (better than Tapout for X-Box) and it is coming out with that Pride Fighting Championship game.
     
  3. PS2 has already established that its a solid system. X-box just came out and its bound to have bugs. Plus do you want to give Gates any more money?

    I got the X-box this Christmas but I don't have any games yet. I rent thta game Halo and is pretty good. I don't care about Bill Gates that sucka is rich enough already and won't enjoy my money. Damn I had to persuade my little brother to buy another joystick. My brothers already have the Playstation 2 and is pretty good. The games in PS2 are pretty good right know but I remember when they just got it the games out suck. X-box is a new engine and most of the games suck right know.

    Wait for the XBox's empire to grow.... that is the system of the future.

    It's got a hard drive. It's ethernet ready. It's DVD player is faster, too. People say "you have to pay $30 for the DVD remote for the xbox!!!" and they don't realize that the PS2 hard drive is going to cost them $120, and the ethernet adapter will cost around $70.

    I say go with XBox. It's got all the power, and eventually, will have all the games... because Microsoft is already offering more money to developers than Sony is.

    + Gates will never let the system perish, he'll just keep pumping more and more moolah into it - matter of face.

    The ufc games is coming december 28 for the X-box. I can't wait. I haven't bought any games yet. Man I believe what Hojak says he seems to know a lot of stuff, that kind of stuff that only geeks know. Hojak what do you do for a living? You know your shit in computers and that kind of stuff. I was amazed when you posted yourself fighting the Rock. Man, I can only check my e-mail and post in here. None of the fancy stuff.

    Dave, could u post that again on this site! I need a serious laugh right now, and that post will def. do it for me. Bring it back Dave, hahaha!!

    Thanks everyone for helping me decide. Both sound good so i guess its a win/win situation for me. Keep them coming if u got more info...

    theres no way im buying an x-box. if you want a hard drive and an ethernet adapter, then close down this forum and install a computer game. your computer will always be faster then the xbox, it will always have a larger hard drive and youll be able to play a lot of the games on your comp that there gonna make for the xbox. why? cause theyre making a big deal about how a gaming console is gonna be able to play online games with the computer people. so that means if they want ppl to be interested in the online capabilities of the xbox, theyll need to make a PC version too. you saw how well all those online Dreamcast games did.

    in the end, if i need a hard drive and modem, ill use my computer. ill get a PS2 for everythng else. you can enhance the graphics of old PS1 games on it, watch DVDs, and sony bought a huge amount of squaresoft's stocks... so that means after final fantasy 11 its gonna be all sony for FF. FF10 alreadt is kicking ass with full voice thoughout the game...
    oh yeah and FF11 is gonna come out for PC...because they actually want a decent sized online community, something no console system will support for a long time.

    thats my rant.

    oh yeah... want a controler instead of a mouse? buy one. theyre cheaper for the computer anyway.

    yeah Max Payne is already on X-box and their version is way better than the one in PS2. They ranked the game in gamespot as a 9.2 while the PS2 version got a 8.

    I don't agree with you. The gamecube games are kind of gay...all those luigi mansion and mario crap. Halo and MAx Payne are good X-box games. When the PS2 came out the only good game was madden and SSX..the rest were a lot of crap. So it's fair to say that the X-box needs a year to come out with some games. PS2 is been in the market longer than the X-box.
