Xbox.

Xbox Live - Loads of fun, taking down people on Burnout 3? What's more fun than that? Halo 2, you and 3 mates all shooting the poopy out of everyone else :tazz:

It's not the console that "everyone's got" so it's something different.

Well, from a hardware/technical standpoint, the Xbox blows the PS2 out of the water.

But when going with a console, I find that the games are what's important. This is also why I go with Xbox again... PS2 is mainly an RPG base, while Xbox is more action oriented. I dabble in RPG's, but my main love is FPS and the like. Plus, alot the PC titles I always wanted to play before I had built my computer, got ported or developed for the Xbox at the same time.

Not too mention Xbox LIVE ruins PS2's online network.

XBOX WINS

I have a PS2 and a XBOX.

I Like them both for different reasons.

I like the PS2 for the classic Game titles like resident evil and the controllers are smaller

I like the XBOX for the better graphics on FPS games.

I did a search on GOOGLE last week about this same debate and i found a site that gave detailed information on how many pixels per frame the XBOX was able to display versus the PS2. The XBOX was alot higher than the PS2, so i guess that means the hardware in the BOX is better. Dont remember the site but do the search and you will find it.

BUT

With the BOX you cant get some of the more popular game titles like PS2 can.

My suggestion.... Buy a BOX and a PS2 and you got the best of both worlds, then you dont have to squabble about which is better.

Xbox is newer than PS2 and its design has allowed the console developers to introduce more in the way of upgrades since its release. XBOX with the PS2 controller would be good. maybe take the triggers from the xbox controller thats it.

PS2 has alot of favorites carried onto it from the PSX. PS2 has become rather expensive. And by that I mean at first you had to buy a system, mem card, and then eventually a network adapter if you wanted to play online not to mention games. Now it's different with the redesign.

It does have really awesome games, God Of War, FFX, Twisted Metal Black, The GTAs. Some of those greats like the GTAs are on Xbox now. PS2 is a great system no doubt.

XBox always has been ready to play right out of the box (minus a game of course). The only set back would be a cost for XBox Live which for avid players is totally worht it. It has the best graphics of the 3 (though gamecube rivals it with the likes of Resident Evil 4 :-). ) and it's focus seems to be FPSs such at the great Halos, Unreal, and more recently Doom 3. It's a great system for RPGers as well. Fable, Elder Scrolls III, KOTOR I & II, this system is deffinetly awesome.

Both systems are amazing. And I am glad that I have both to play and experience the fun factor delivered by them :-)
