    What's the general consensus here?

    My brother wants one of these and he doesn't know which one is better.....what do you guys think?

    PS2 has more games since it's been out longer, but I think the x-box is better due to being able to play 4 player games (Halo) and the graphics are better in most cases.

    I think he should think of what games he wants to play and go with the system that has the most games that he's interested in.

    PS2, for one simple reason: no subscription required for online games. I bought the game already, why does Microsoft think I want to keep buying it every month? Oh, wait, they're Microsoft...

    its all about the games. There are 2-3 games I'd love to play on the xbox, but that doesn't warrant getting one, because there are some 10-20 games I like on the PS2. Obviously the PS2 is the better buy

    This is true but the servers are sucking it up on SOCOM right now. :sad2:

    consider this:

    3 PS2s are sold for every 1 Xbox.

    Xbox superior graphics claim has yet to be proven IMO. And Halo is almost a year old now, does the Xbox have any other premeir titles?

    I bought my ps2 a year ago when the good games started coming out (Gt3, GTA3, mgs2, etc)

    I thought that by now the xbox would have tons of great games and i'd trade in the ps2 and get an xbox.

    It hasn't worked out that way. There's still nothing i want on xbox, and there are more ps2 games coming that i DO want.

    Look for the games, it doesn't matter if one is a billion times faster and the graphics are a trillion times sharper if the only game for it is tetris.

    I haven't really looked into it but it seems like PS2 has better games for it IMO.

    Theres only one game I even want on the X-Box, and theres a fair number of good ones for the PS2. Personally I thought Halo sucked. I mean I've got a dozen first person shooters on my computer anyway.

    I don't remember what the game I wanted for the X-Box was... it was some stealth type game... was at E3... it's not out yet, I remember that much.

    True, thanks for the note.

    Looks like the PS2 is clearly the fav :bigthumb:

    Easy one. X-BOX.

    I had a PS2, sold the piece of shit, and will buy an X-BOX real soon.

    Better graphics, kick ass games (although there are more games for PS2), built-in Ethernet, built in hard drive. :yum:

    That's some good info there BLoG,

    Not only does the PS2 have a better selection of games, they've been developing at a faster rate too. Good to know.

    Thanks!

    My wish list:

    X-BOX with Halo, Silent Hill 2, and Moto GP. I'll pick up Halo 2 this x-mas. :o

    On the flip side of things.. One kick ass game for the PS2 is GTA3. It was the ONLY fun game I had for that system. I'm almost tempted in buying the PS2 this winter if Vice City is really all that.
