Both are GREAT consoles!
depends what you like......PS2 and XBox have some of the same games but Xbox has better graphincs!
I like PS2 cause of the GTA Series and Gran Turismo
XBox cause the Project Gothem Racing, Halo, and Dead or Alive
It depends on what kind of games you like
the prices are the same at about 150 USD each
but i have a GameCube!
