I have both, and a 57inch HDTV, I find the X-box graphics are WAY superior, I find myself playing it more often.

This is an ongoing debate i've got with some of my friends. I think it really depends on what you're into. If graphics is really important to you with HD comptibility etc... then X-box is it.

I personally don't care who makes the system... i'm the guy that's forced to buy a PS2 because that's what works with GranTourismo.... basically, the games dictate the system for me.

I have the PS2 and one day pick up an X-Box once there is a game that will rival GranTurismo.

It's all about the racin' games!

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!
BOO YA!

I think PC is the best, but I would go with PS2
GT3, GTA3, GTA3:VC, NFS:HS2

Ya PCs are better cause the keyboard and mouse
and the PC has better graphics also
The Xbox has a Pentium 3 Processor
And a PC has a Pentium 4 and with a good graphics card like Radeon or GeForce4 Titanium it will outdo the Xbox
PS: Dont you mean GTA:VC/GTA4:VC stickfinga?
heh

huge fan of rpg's and ps2 got the best, so i choose ps2, as for racing games, Gran Turismo kicks ass, but there is only a certain amount you can play the game, like jesus, hurry up with number 4 and the concept version, cause **** me, leguna seca is getting boring for the 600th time round

I think of it like Randy does. Xbox has superior hardware and graphics but to tell you the truth PS2 has much better games. I would rather play a game that's 100% fun but looks 90% real than a game that's 90% fun and 100% real.

In fact, I would buy PS2 just for GT3 as well as Vice City

ps2

Metal Gear Soild 2, GTA series, GT:3

Face it sony has the hold on console games. PS1 has a shit load of games and is still fun n64? what the hell. Don't say 007 I HATE that game.

ps2 has already come out with a lot of good games and x box is a small computer. Bang for your buck ps2. Graphics are nuthign without game play


(PC gaming sucks)
