PS2 Network / Broadband Adaptor - are you going to get it?

It's a different story between Japan and US. The Japan side is launching the online service with a killer title - Final Fantasy XI. but for the US side, there are no AAA titles to launch, the only one comes close os SOCOM. I really don't know if I should get a PS2 Network adaptor, or I should wait until 2003 when FFXI comes out?

I doubt it at this point. I'm not really into online gaming, but I suppose my mind could be changed if the right game came along. Online console gaming needs to define itself apart from PC online gaming, IMHO. Just like the games themselves.

I'm not going to buy it, because I don't like online RPG gaming. I like online First-Person Shooting (FPS) gaming like Unreal Tournament for PC, but that doesn't mean I'm going to get Halo and an Xbox for the online console experience.

I live in the target market of Japan, so I can see how it will develop. The game magazine I read (Weekly Famitsu) always has a 2 to 4 page blurb about Final Fantasy XI (Online), and it's been like that for many weeks now. There is a great demand for it, according to the weekly reader poll.

At any rate, I already have a broadband adapter (ethernet card) for my PS2 via the Linux Kit. But no games support it so I'm just bragging ;). I would really like Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 to come out for Japan which I hear supports online gaming, but then maybe I should just get a PS2 from the U.S.

Depending on the games released, I may buy one. I am still annoyed that Sony did not include a built-in adapter
