Get the X-Box, it's much better than PS2

X-box...the PS-2 is a generation back...I gave my son-in-law an X-box for Christmas, the rest of the family is pissed at him. He's having so much fun playing "Halo" he hasn't opened up the other games. I'm impressed.

People have already linked up there PCs to their X Boxes to go online to play games. There are alot of bugs (mostly the online games won't support more than 2 players, but MS is very optimistic aboutreleasing their modem addon in a few months.(maybe)

That was a good comparison Goatboy I have an Xbox, got it about 2 days after they were released. I only have 3 games for it but they are so good I am in no hurry. Amped, Gotham Racing, and Halo. Multiplayer in Halo is incredible. My best friend has a P2 and although it is a great machine, he is jealous. If Xbox can come out with GT3 or GT4, I will be very happy. (GT=Gran Turismo) Patsue

I've played a lot of Metal Gear Solid 2 and Grand Theft Auto. Both are freaking amazingly good games. That said, I would still go with the XBOX. Shawn

Why give Bill Gates any more of your money? The Jacka$$ has a monopoly on the computer business and are be loved government is not doing anything about it. The PS2 has been around for about a year a friend of mine said they have the planes to come out with the PS3 in a year or so(Don't know if thats true or not.) I have heard some good things about the X-box and PS2 but I much rather place $300 more in an upgrade in my computer then get earthier one of them. The computer graphs will always blow away the X-Box and PS2. Just my $0.02

Yep, and 90% of the people out there bitching are doing it from a Windows popup screen. I figure the alternative to Microsoft would be Unix and Netscape, what a combo [%|]

The graphics card and the 3d accelerator I have right now is a hell of a lot better then the X-Box. I'll take the Pepsi challenge any day VS the X-box. I have seen the X-box trust me it does not compare.

Xbox all the way. I have both the Xbox and the PS2. Yes the PS2 has more games out now. Some are great, some are complete crap. Being that the Xbox is still very new it has some great titles so far. Give it more time and it will prove itself as THE system to beat. With upcoming broadband gaming, onboard hard drive and ethernet adapter you cant go wrong for $299. The PS2 is STILL $299 and they are suppose to come out with a hard drive add on and network adapter. That is, at an extra charge of course. So the choice is simple.

Exactly what is it you think have and is so much better huh? Because the Xbox has a Geforce3 and that's the hottest thing out for the PC currently... Best you can do is match it. The Xbox doesn't have a slow ass AGP port to try to stuff info over either, it's a great setup...

Xbox. I bought the Xbox on release day and although it is sort of collecting dust while I await the new games it was a good investment. I have always been a PC gamer and probably will still be (mouse/keyboard will always outpeform a gamepad in 1st person shooters) but the potential for some amazing gaming on that system is there. I run my Xbox using component video to my 43" Widescreen HDTV, plus use the optical connection for true Digital audio. Halo is an aewsome game, my brother and I finished it the first few days playing it in cooperative mode. Once the developers take adavantage of the higher HDTV resolutions and invoke the Anti-Aliasing on the newer games PS2 will show its older technology. DOA3 and Halo are the flagship games for the Xbox. Oh yeah, and I think after the 1st week gamespy released a tunnel to play Xbox games over the net for free. I was rocking the Halo online and had a blast. Try that with ps2. Games my brother and I have in no particular oder: Halo DO3 Gotham racing 4x4 Evo Artic Thunder Bloodwake Oddworld Kabuki Warriors Max Payne EA's football (forget which one) The new NBA (forget name) SSX Tricky Amped Eagerly awaiting UFC and Bruce Lee....

Thanks for the input, guys! I went last night and got me the XBOX...Shit, it really cooler than shit! I bought Gotham Racing and Star Wars Starfighter... the second game is not really what I expected, but hey, who said life is? And like goatboy says, I can wait for the games to come out. Reading the specs and the likes, I can also inferr that this console might probably be upgraded later on. I bet that as soon as some other newer generation console comes out, this Microsoft stuff WILL require the use of the dedicated modem coming out to hook up to some site and upgrade the unit...Talk about wanting to make money, huh??? Bill Gtaes, you might look like a nerd, but you ARE the PC man! Thanks again to all you guys! Jorge

What????? You didn't buy Halo? Halo should be a requirement with the system. I strongly suggest you rush out and buy it today! Get three more controllers while your at it and invite over three of your friends. Don't plan on doing anything else for the rest of the day other than ordering out.....[:)]

Maybe I'm wierd, but I'll stick with the PC. Currently, the only advantage the X-Box has over the PC is with it's chipset (system board and on the video adapter), as can be readily seen in the graphics. It may also have a slight advantage in the design of the player's controller. However, there are works in progress for the PC that will even dwarf the advantages of the X-Box chipset. It seems that every damn company is trying to find some way to up the performance of a PC. They are either creating new memory designs, CPU designs, and bus transfer technology. By the time I decide to upgrade my current PC (probably within this year), I will have the ability to choose hardware that outperform the X-Box. In order for the X-Box to be a contender, it will always need to be redevoloped just like the PC. However, I can do very little more than play games on the X-Box, whereas I can do a bunch more things with a PC. I couldn't see myself always having to upgrade my "gaming" system. However, I can see the advantages of upgrading my PC.
