    im sure there are 5000 threads on this but i just wnated some fresh answers as there are quite a few amazing games for the Box in teh works. Panzer Dragoon Orta, Tao Fang, halo, dead or alive volleyball and all this other shit comin for it.

    basically for me its between keepin a ps2 or gettin this, i have a cube but that goes nowhere its a keeper always. but the only reason i have ps2 is for gta series but i got bored of 3 an will eventualyl of vice city, just curious cuz lots of you on here seem to have xbox, how the fawk is it????

    XBox is definitely worth it
    Go rent one from Blockbuster for $20 for like 5 nights and check it out. Halo, Splinter Cell :bigthumb:

    Yes. I fucking love this system. Between Splinter Cell and Xbox live, I'm having a lot of fun. :cool:

    I still haven't played Halo yet.

    Oh, and DO NOT sell your PS2. You will regret it. Case in point: I sold my PS2 and Gamecube earlier this year. Low and behold, Tekken 4 came out and I had to have it. So, I bought the PS2 again. Now Zelda is around the corner. I will never sell any of my video game systems ever again.

    damn i knew i would get responses a hell of a lot faster posting in here, thanks. yea i dont know this is my second ps2 however literally the only games i have enjoyed playing on it since i got it were gta 3 and gta vice city, i guess i just dont want so many systems cuz i dont have enough time to play them all as it is. but it looks like box is blowin up.

    You should really consider keeping both of them. Think about a "must have" game that may come out down the road. If you can afford to, having a multi-system is the only way to go.

    I just got the xbox from my GF and i love it. Don't forget about the acessories for the xbox. My cousin told me that there is a life size controller for the game Mech Warrior. -makes it as though you really controll the game. I think that's pretty cool.

    Xbox is a decent system...its got a handful of good games. Being a PS2 owner I wouldnt mind owning it 'also'....but in no way is it a substitute for the PS2. PS2 has too many good games out, more on the way. The hardware difference on paper dont mean crap when you compare GT3 vs *Xbox.

    Honestly if I were to chose, I would own the systems in this order:

    1. PS2
    2. Gamecube (because its got good games and zelda on the way)
    3. Xbox
    4. *

    I love Gran Turismo 3 on PS2. I played Sega GT 2002 on Xbox...no, its not as good, but I still played it for 5 hours yesterday.

    like auto modellista

    i have x box and ps2 and i am very happy with both of them, the only games i really play are driving and sports games so gamecube didnt really appeal to me.

    i just got splinter cell and all i can say is wow, its so amazing, the light usage in that game is just awesome. in fact, im going to go play it now:bigthumb:


    p.s. keep the ps2 and get x box
