Xbox is a very good investment imo.... if you like the games on it.

But I don't. So therefore it isn't for me.

The PS2 has the most games out there, with some major exclusives. It's online too.

The GameCube has Nintendo, as well as third party love. It can go online, but no one knows what that holds...

The Xbox.. well it has good games too.. and most it's games do look very pretty. It's also got an online plan, if you care about that.

...

Which system(s) has the games you want to play?
That alone is what should sway you.

Remember.. we're not shopping for computers here...

Aye. If hardware was the deciding factor alone, the XBox would be doing much better. It's the games; it will always be the games. The only "mistake" people make when deciding what console to buy is making their decision based on what's under the hood.

I thought IGN said the PS2 had the best DVD player. Sounds odd I know but I could be wrong.

"Best" should really be used rather loosely. I don't think any real formal experiments have been done to see which console's actually better at the task; some will tell you PS2, others will swear it's the XBox. Regardless, neither of them is a dedicated DVD player, so the quality's not going to be anything outstanding.

Well, everyone seems to get the general idea that hardware specs mean little. As for the only thing that has seemed to really seep through (that being dvd playback). IGN did rate the PS2 dvd playback better, and I honestly don't know what the hell they were thinking. What I can easily say that is that the Gamecube with dvd playback (the Panasonic Q) utterly crushes both the PS2 and X-box in that department. Not only with superior playback and all, but it plays vcds too. It's quite sexy I might add. quite sexy.

Another pathetic X-fanboy with of course, irrational lame reasonings. How many times I've seen stupid narrow-minded people like xbox86 many times say the same thing?

X what? Oh yes, eXtinct! Yep! PlayStation2 has the most titles, and it's the games that gamers count, not the internal specs of a game console. You even want to debate with me that PS2 has sold more units than your Xbox did? Yeah, don't get me wrong, I have a Xbox, however, I don't have much titles for it, so I end up playing my PSX or Dreamcast more than my Xbox.

LOL...the funniest thing in the world is when people try to promote a system based on hardware. I want and play good videoGAMES, not videoCONSOLES.

Initially, all consoles are promoted on the techincal side. It is only those with a freakishly short memory who forget that all three companies have used the hardware angle as a marketing tool. Do you think Sony and MS are making mistakes when talking about the hardware power of their next consoles? Sony has gone on record about the mysterious cell concept - and left gaming out of the equation entirely! Even GC used the angle that the hardware was designed for ease of use for the developers during their publicity for their console.

No, I'm not forgetting. They release the tech specs and parade them around a bit just to show how much of an improvement it is over the previous generation. Nothing wrong with that. However, I'm of firm mind that you shouldn't use the raw power of the console as a crutch, especially a year into its lifespan. Peoples' interest turn back to "What games will we get?" fairly quickly.

And you?d rather sacrifice good quality games for all those features the Xbox has? Get a life dude. I hate when fanboys come here to brag about what his/her favorite system has over the other consoles, and games? what games are you referring to, Halo?

Please don't ask people to generate a list of games that make a system worth owning. It really is personal preference after all, so to generate a list out of the 150 or so Xbox games available as a justification is an excersize in futility.

Speaking of excersises in futility, look at the nature of this thread. Notice how many posts xbox86 has? You guys are only making your fingers tired by typing, and you're preaching to the converted.
