lol!!! thats got to be the most expensive frisbee:lol: :lol:
Na, it's worth it when it's worthless (we should stop flaming each other)
What i meant was, youd have to pay 50 bucks to get your hands on one.
Lets make one thing perfectly clear........
Copying and pasting completely useless facts from some random website, that probably has absolutley no idea what they are talking about, does not constitute a valid argument for why the PS2 is 'better' than the xbox.
The PS2's hardware and architecture are based purely on 9 year old technology that was used on the PSX, so know points for working out why most PS2 owners have gone through more than one PS2 in the course of their console gaming history. THE PS2 IS EFFECTIVELY AN OVERCLOCKED PSX, with the same standard parts, and falls apart on a regular basis.
This is the biggest reason Sony have sold so many units..... they keep breaking, and ppl need to replace them.
However, Sony's marketing team have been really clever in creating a household brand in the PS that means that it is the first thing on the tip of the tounge of ppl when they think of consoles.
This is changing very quickly....
Sony are about to lose the top spot in consumer electronics to samsung, good way forward then? don't think so, they are doing that badly, that their credit rating has just been dropped from perfect to good, so things are not looking good.... (and don't try to argue with me on that, i work in the industry, and know EVERYTHING that is going on)
Market researchers are pitting that the next Xbox (Although backward compatibility will be very unlikely) will beat the next PS 2:1 so sony's future is not looking good
The only console that is technologically very clever is the game cube, on standards it is the second best console available, it does miraculous things with its hardware, first and foremost FSAA on its GPU, i love the way they have managed it.
The PS2 is third on the list as its dead dormant technology, that is unreliable, and not particularly clever. The majority of games on it are utter s**t, there is very little in the way of quality titles available, and the ones that are there are losing popularity (lets face it Pro Evo has gone cross platform, as are all the squaresoft (yes they will be making an apperance on the xbox, starting with a classics(FF7 + 8 remade)) we still haven't seen anything of GT4)
In response to 'the xbox has, what, 3d shooters? because those aren't a dime a dozen? medal of honor series is on ps2, good enough for me. Contra: Shattered Solider isn't on Xbox. Neither is Amplitude, Animal Crossing, Final Fantasy, Metroid, ZOE, Def Jam, the new Gradius V, the new TMNT 3D fighter, Dynasty Warriors, GTA, Gran Turismo, the new Castlevania, anything Mario, Guilty Gear X2, Primal, Resident Evil, etc.'
Half of these titles are already cross platform, so go into your local store, open your eyes and see what is actually on sale, and come back when you have something intelligent to add to the debate.
In conclusion, the PS2 is s**te, the cube is impressive for what it has, and the xbox based on both specs, (graphical ability, the ps2 cant come anywhere close, go and compare NFSU2 if you don't believe me, oh and why is it that both doom 3 and half-life 2 will only be making apperances on the xbox, because it is the only console capable of rendering either of these games) and the games, which there may not be that many of, but most of ARE worth playing which cannot be said about the PS2
As a PC gamer, my opinion is unbiased, i have owned all three, and only still have my xbox and my cube. so that says a lot
But your opinions are up to you, the evidence is clear for all to see.
All you've got to do is open your eyes
Jesus Christ iv'e actually read that copy and past post again and looked at the figures that guy is claiming on memory bandwidth and prossesing speeds of the PS2, i don't think theres an alienware that can post numbers like that.........!
So some really realistic numbers then..............?
I don't know some ppl know so little that figures that NASA would be impressed with seem feesible to them...

I find Xbox to be the most desireable console of all, because it uses the most powerful graphics processing hardware and, in my opinion, has the best selection of games available for it.
