My mates got the xbox and it has some good games like the old famous "Mario Karts" etc but to be honest i haven't had any probs with my Playstation and i rate it all the way !!!

You can also get better / more games for the playstation AND you wont have much luck fitting the XBox into your lexus if you ever think about doing that

Playstation 2 looks much better also !

Hope that helps ya decision

what is all this anti xbox man - its the more powerfull machine and the ONLY game that i cant get on my xbox that is on ps2 that is good is GTA3 - now that is only till 2004 anyway - everything else is on xbox - its cheaper - there is ingame dolby digital (not available on ps2) and the DVD playback is as u suggested much better on the xbox - the ps2 uses compasite video and the xbox uses RGB - dont get me wrong the ps2 is good but the xbox is just better, i aint gonna rgue it more than that - its cheaper more powerful and any big games come out on it normally in improved guise (toca race driver/ burnout 2) - also its not that much bigger than a ps2 at all.

My mate is an absolute wizz at computers, hes just got rid of his XBOX for a gamecube because of zelda. He thinks the XBOX is wank. He was playing XBOX Live using his PC and thought that that was the only upside over the PS2. The PS2 may be slower and less powerful but it has the most important thing, the best games. Without the games, the xbox is a very large doorstop.

I cant for the life of me think why the X-Box is more powerful and more advanced Oh yeh coz its newer! As for the X-Box being cheaper Also how many people that buy games consoles have the ability and equipment to properly used Dolby Digital 5.1? And it is much bigger than the PS2! Plus the PS2 can stand vertically

PS2 all the way

those games are for ps2 but the xbox is by far the better console. The good ps2 games may not be out for it but the quality of graphics and usefulnesss of the harddrive make it a sure winner. i have both and xbox is best

cybermonkey - are you some kind of tit? - what are you going on about - i know fuck all - i am a ong time games player - and i take an interest in the console hardware also - and it isnt THAT much bigger - i mean for gods sake they both fit under the seat of a clio 16v - and you have a mate who played xbox live throuh his pc - dont u mean he used gamespy throught his pc with his xbox? - xbox live dosnt need a pc as far as i am aware - and yeah i appreciate that the xbox is better due to it being newer - this is like the argument that a e-type jag is better than a mclaren f1 - it isnt! - the e-type was good in its day but come on a mclaren f1 would kick its ass in every department.

as for dolby digital - i thnthat quite a few people have this, its relatively cheap nowadays and is quality.

Gamecube is worth it for Zelda alone... and then fzero and mario kart which are on the way. Metroid Prime is class too.

You can get Gamecube for 80 now...

once the xbox is chipped, you can run linux on it, emulate the nes, snes, megadrive, 32x, megacd, master system, amiga, N64 and most recently it now plays playstation 1 games.
Also once chipped it becomes multi region and it has macrovision removed, and with the xbox dvd player u dont get green screen with RGB

The console is immense once cihpped, but is pants when standard

Any modern PC is better than a console by miles. and if u dont like looking at a monitor than most modern graphics cards have S video out allowing u to use ur tv hence ur PC becomes a console, wuld never have a console over a PC
