    :rofl: looks like someone didn't do his research!
    It's funny how PS2 and Xbox are the same price (at the moment) and yet I'm still getting a PS2. Maybe that's because sony has proven to us that a technically "unsuperior" system can be "better" than the one with the "better" hardware.
    I still want an Xbox more than gamecube. Gamecube was the worst selling system in Japan so I think I'm going to take a hit from them that it's not as great as PS2 or Xbox.

    Well the XBOX is suppose to be the same price as the PS2. I think after christmas all of them will go down. Only one bad thing about the XBox. Its running a Microsoft OS on it thus it can have problems. Other than that the HW in the Xbox kicks ass.

    I'm going to say it because sooner or later someone else will. Iz jo0 ignant?

    Only reason Windows crashes is because people install too much shit on it and don't know how to optimize. Heard of Windows CE? I don't hear that crashing. Xbox is fine, it's not going to crash.

    I already have a PS2 and I hardly touch it. (2 games only). I"ll wait a few years before I buy Xbox, when the game support is alot better.

    alot of windows instability comes from the various combinations of hardware and drivers that people are running, with the xbox it will always be the same, so that will cut down a lot of problems right there...

    but I still don't think xbox crashes will be unheard of..

    Exactly my point. PC's you have 3rd party designing hardware and drivers to for an operating system foreign to them, Microsoft doesn't give out their blue print to the OS so it's more of a comprimise with the vendors designing drivers. I'm sure Xbox was outsourced to another company, the OS on it was design entirely MS.. will it crash? Let's just say it has the same percentage as the sky falling.. it could happen, but not likely :bigthumb:

    I just don't like the windows is a liability out-of-the-box mentality.

    UNIX crashes too..

    perhaps you guys didnt hear about the xbox demos that went to stores (kmart, target, software etc.) that crashed on a regular basis.

    300$ for X-Box for what u get as in specs and perfomance= YES

    300$ for PS2 that seems like a turtle in a race compared to x-box = no

    It's people like you that pirate games and burn them that lead video game systems to go under (i.e. sega dreamcast). If you want to continue to see the games and graphics that you see, support those that produce them for you!
