    how is that hypocritical??!

    anyhow, just mod it, then it'll play vcd, divx, svcd and all region dvd without that dongle....

    Because you complain about a system lacking a piece of hardware while your own system is also lacking something.

    I do? Mind finding where I've said that?

    you ps2 owners are so sensitive.... it's not my fault your hardware sucks...

    the correct statement for you to have made would be 'xbox owners who slam the ps2 for not having a harddrive or an ethernet card are hypocrites.'

    and even then, you get a free remote ;)

    Anyway, point being it specifically says dvd playback but then you have to buy an accessory to play dvd's :mad:

    Whereas ps2, doesnt say it comes with a hardrive or modem/network adapter.

    Besides i own both and, well, ps2 is owning right now for me :bigthumb:

    Well if they are then thats a bitch cause i bought the xbox at the release date for full price and now its only half the price, and now they also throw in the controller for free :mad:

    Xbox owns all. If you mod it for 60 bucks, no soldering, unlike ps2(i own both) You can play, Nintendo, super nintendo, genesis, gameboy, gameboyadvance. All on your xbox. And after that, watch movies, divx, mpegs, og video. And if you are a naughty person you could even play games you download. the xbox is the superior system.

    First of all, if you buy the controler, you can get a mail in rebate for $30 on the DVD remote. They arent avliable publicly anymore, but you can still call microsoft and get the rebate info sent to you so you can get your $30 back.

    and seconed...

    Yeah, Sony is a GREAT deal off the mark...i mean...who else in this industry can intentionally throttle back production numbers on launch, and create mass public hysteria for a system that only offered 5 games in the first two months its on the store shelves!! HOLY FUCKING SHIT! WHAT A VALUE! And then i get to buy memory cards, and have a console with a subpar video output device, and the shittiest DVD decoding software EVAR! I sure am glad i payed $500 for my PS2 on EBay so i could play two good games, FUCKING-A SONY RULES!

    Nice, the endless war continues...


    I had no problem with the PS2 launch, it pays off and makes sense that if you bother to pre-order early, you'll get one, nice and simple.

    Anyone who...why bother.
