lets see, xbox or ps2... hmmm lets see:

they both -cost the same ($200)
-have thier own sets of good games
-have modchips to play free backups
-are made by top companies

but, the Xbox has superior hardware because it was released after the ps2 meaning it has and will continue to have graphically superior games compared to the playstation 2. its just a law of nature, you cant argue against it. if u ask me, its a shame its still competing with the ps2 but it is only reasonable because its only a year old and isnt as popular as the almost 3yr old ps2. it was MS's mistake entering the console wars so late with thier system but they've compenated by matching the price to ps2.

not to mention that the modchips are cheaper for the xbox...

lets see, what would i rather get... an xbox or ps2... hmm

Let the truth be told!

If you're in for the games then buy ps2, if you're in for the quality then buy the xbox. I have now convinced myself that the xbox graphics are far superior than the ps2 and you don't see too much of a bluriness like the ps2.

Although, the ps2 has pretty nice features like ps1 compatibility, very cheap modchips(in fact you don't need a chip to boot copy games just a little swap trick) and ps2 has a large collection of games.

so there you go. biggrin.gif

gotta add that xbox comes equipped with ethernet ($40 extra for ps2) and hard drive ($80 extra for ps2). so practically it is cheaper than ps2 if u add it all up. true ps2 has more games but how many would you actually play... i have 200 games for ps2 but still play xbox more biggrin.gif

Predictably the Legendary Rob is full of wisdom....

A) Better graphics
cool.gif Ethernet hookup (we can play on the net for a while now)
C) Hard drive (I haven't spent squat on any memory cards)
D) DivX;) player (very nice to have)
E) a nice resemblance to the late DC - nice and programmable the way we like it.

The games on the xbox are better, even tho ps2 has a few good games. I hate/detest/abhor the ps2 controllers too.

Ditto but for the Xbox controllers, whomever decided where the buttons went had to be an idiot. I prefer using the 3rd part MadCatz controller that has the button layout like the PS2.
How can you dislike the best controller ever designed? tongue.gif

I don't think that either of the system's controllers are bad. I just think that it would be really hard to go back and forth between them.

If you have small hands yes... The xbox controller is just the right size, and is the most natural feeling for my hands...

The PS2 controller is way to small and not playable for me, if you don't have small hands...

Maybe it's because i'm older or maybe you are small anyway, a lot of "younger" ppl like the PS2 controllers more, but i still think it's because of their hand-size...

Just use whatever fits you best biggrin.gif

Xbox is a better system in and of itself, but right now PS2 is far superior when it comes to games. Sure, the graphics aren't as good. But I'd rather play ICO, MGS2, GT3, GTA3, Devil May Cry, Ace Combat, Baldur's Gate, and Soul Reaver than Halo, which is the only must-have on Xbox right now. Everything else is on both (though the Xbox versions obviously look better). Xbox should catch up by the end of this year (maybe), but right now it just doesn't have the must-haves that PS2 does.

Reborn that "if your hands are small" argument has been used too many times as some sort of insult. I didn't complain about the size or weight or anything BUT the damn button layout which is awful. If your hands aren't small how can you not complain that the friggin buttons are all bunched together in some messed up semi diagonal including the white and black buttons?
