    The XB gives you the most for your money by a land slide, no comparison.

    The PS2 is on its way out, the next one will be out before you know it and I think you would be nuts to buy one at this point in its life cycle.

    The XB however already has amazing games and its just getting started. Take a look at Halo and Splinter Cell for examples. Then take into account it has the best online program going and its hard to go wrong.

    Then think that Doom3, halo 2, B.C, Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Fable are on the horizon and it should all be clear.

      "The PS2 is on its way out"?

      http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/2664337.stm

      And take a look at the "don't let 'em hit you on the @ss" list:

      http://ps2.ign.com/release.html

      Yeah, it's really grinding to a halt.

      Plus, the PS3 isn't coming out 'till '05, and it'll probably be near the end of '05, for Christmas, so, at worst, there's 2 1/2 years worth of life in the PS2. And a system doesn't die once a new one is released. I guarantee you that in Christmas '05, there will be far more PS2 games than PS3 games released.

      And Sony aren't the ones who are giving away 2 games with their system.

      Also, take a look at PS2 games that've scored a 9 or higher at IGN.com:

      http://ps2.ign.com/scores_9.html

      X-Box games that've scored a 9 or higher:

      http://xbox.ign.com/scores_9.html

      I'm sure the X-Box has a few good games that are X-Box-exclusive, but as far as quantity of quality games go, it's not even close. You could argue that the PS2 has more crap games, too, but so what? Anybody with half a brain won't get suckered into buying a bad game.

      AND the PS2 has the king of them all, Vice City. You can throw every other point I made out the window, but the fact remains that Vice City is the most rockin'-est, sock'em-est game out there.

      Oh, and in case the original poster didn't know, you can play Playstation 1 games on the Playstation2.

      And don't get me wrong: I'm no Sony loyalist or anything. Actually, I'm probably going to get an X-Box, too, if/when the sequel to "Perfect Dark" comes out. But facts is facts, and the PS2 is BY FAR the best, and best supported, system out there now, and will be for the foreseeable future.

      If choosing music gear was as easy as choosing a gaming system, I'd never come here.

              It rocked on Colecovision, too.

              Man, I loved that game.

              As long as we're taking a stroll down Old Videogame Lane, anyone remember the arcade games Bagman and Zoo Keeper? Now THOSE rocked.

                  well, i think you can't really go wrong with ANY of them.

                  however, i had a GC and an XBOX and i sold the xbox. close friend had a PS2, he ended up selling it and getting a GC. while he did have huge amounts of fun with GTA3 and vice city, i think those are really the only huge hitters you'll really miss. and personally, while that game is alot of fun for along time, i don't miss it a whole lot now...

                  thers more amazing games than i have time to own and throughly play on the GC, and all things i loved on my SNES and older systems...
                  zelda, metroid prime, smash brothers melee, mario sunshine, skies of arcadia legends, resident evil, soccer slam, eternal darkness, phantasy star online (if you're into that sort of game), timesplitters 2... fzero, mario kart, and starcraft: ghost all coming out this year. all of these games i would love to own, but i really only have like 4, and they keep me plenty busy. i'm into a game with alot of replay value, and also a game i can play with/against friends.

                  still lots of other games i didn't even mention there people love... tony hawk, rogue squadron, monkey ball, ssx tricky, lost kingdoms, animal crossing, mortal kombat, wave race, star fox adventures, and a lot of sports games..

                  if i had broadband still, and wanted to play more online games, i might rather have an xbox... but if you want a good online experience, you should be playing pc games, as the community is alot larger, and you don't have to deal with annoying voice chat.

                  think it has alot ot do with your budget, and what kind of games you'd rather play. nintendo suits my demands perfect.

                      Don't listen to them, skins: it's a trap!

                      Get the PS2. And Vice City. Nothing will impress/occupy the time of the casual gamer more than Vice City.

                      Also, I suspect that the criminal nature of Vice City will appeal to your clients (musicians, I'm guessing) way more than any Mario game would.

                      Sure, there are quality games for all the systems, but there's nothing like Vice City, and it's only on the PS2. It's also really easy to get into: steal a car, do a couple of drive-bys, cops chase you, flip through the radio stations until you find a cool song . . . it's the best. The missions are awesome, but you can have a blast just stealing/smashing cars, shooting people, getting chased by cops, exploring the island(s), etc.

                        I have PS2 and I am happy with its graphics and the number of games available for it. Most of the time I play GTA3 and Vice City and I am never bored. I hope that next version of GTA has multiplayer option. That game will be best ever!

                            You can't go wrong with any of these systems. I have PS2 and a Gamecube for my son. Both are excellent and have plenty of great games. I've played Xbox and it's cool too.


                            If I was getting one still, it would be PS2. Still the best games and the most games, but each platform has it's standouts.

                              GT-3 and Vice City are on Xbox and they look better than on the PS-2 version, Halo 2 is coming soon. Gotham City Racing totally rocks, especially since all i lesten too during these games are my own tunes which i have stored on the drive. Nothing beats playing Vice City while listening to Led Zep, SOundgarden or Metallica while crushing helpless pedestrians. I don't see any reasons to own a PS-2 anymore, i sold mine a while back. The Xbox has enough great games to please anyone. I mean for the people who keep saying that the Ps-2 has more games, well how many are you going to buy? I only buy maybe 2 games every few months.

                                Xbox all the way - it's basically a Celeron computer so you can upgrade the HD to a 160gig (or even larger) HD, save your games onto that and run them directly from the HD.

                                Run emulators to play all your old PS1, SNES, Atari 2600, MAME, and Gameboy games.

                                Hook up the Xbox to your network and FTP files to and from it.

                                Upload MP3s, pictures, movies and use the media player to play all your stuff.

                                Play all region DVDs without the adapter.

                                Use it as a Linux server. . .
