Official XBOX vs. PS2 vs. Game Cube vs. PC/Mac Thread

This had been posted many times before but now it is official. All thoughts and comments should be posted here. I am tryin to talk my friend into tradin in his PS2 for an XBOX. Post all of your opinions here. Could this be made a stickey? Also post your opinions on games for this system and talk about the latest news. And most of all no flaming or spaming. Have Fun!

~IMO XBOX owns the gaming market. It has the most advanced graphix and some sweet ass games(i.e HALO, HALO 2(next year)007 Nightfire(a lot better than the original),Unreal Championship, Splinter Cell, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4, Metal Gear Solid Substace, and within a year or two the Grand Theft Auto Series. Also Mech Assault and XBOX Live!) Another great feature is the Hard Drive. No need for memory cards and your can save your music onto the system and use it for the soundtracks for games like Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4.~

ok, all three systems should be released in 2005 and as a relief to all you fellow console gamers out there im sure youll be glad to know that all three systems are going to be cheaper ranging from 99-150 and maybe a little more dollars......this is due to new manufacturing techniques and other factors. as for the "XBOX NEXT" it will be the microsofts second edition of the xbox and they are planning on having two different editions for it, one being with home entertainment editions such as dvd, web service, web tv, etc. and the other strictly for gaming depending on the consumers preferrences and the ps3 may also have this same available option. now the gamecubes innovation will be enhanced graphics on an even SMALLER gaming system by trying to bring the same or almost the same graphics to a more portable system........i have a link on my other computer but until i can get to it i wont be able to give you guys more detailed information on what i said

man microsoft really wants to rule the world.

IMO the best system is sega genesis. Sorry but thats the only system i actually played a lot (cause i didnt get sick of it) for 3 years solid. Super Nintendo comes next, followed by ps2

xbox is my favorite, then gamecube, then ps2, cuz ps2 is a horrible peice of crap. i had one and traded it in for my xbox. all its games are rushed and they are all easy, including the GTA series, its only somewhat good title (its boring in my opinion). i love xbox ad gamecube takes a cose second, just because of metroid prime, melee, the resident evil games, and eternal darkness. but i must say, PC owns all, but i don't like key board cntrols and since xbox has sweet online service, i think it might just beat it in gameplay, eventually

awww.......but xbox IS a pc so it still claims victory in my world. the gc would be an awesome system with its almost equality in graphics (probably the same but i cant tell) but unfortunately it has barely any games at all and only 1 on their online service.............such a good system going to waste

I know I sound childish but I actually like most games for gamecube. XBOX is still my favorite system by far but I played this one game Pikimin. Ya it's a kids game but it's kinda addictive. You grow these little plant things and sick the on these big fat lady bugs. IMO it's kinda fun. I also like Super Smash Bros melee. BTW how many of you ps2 lovers have played splinter cell? You will change to an XBOX lover with just one minute of playin this game, it is incredible!

PC, beats them all. Comon guys, PC's have the best graphics, the fastest speed, and the best games. Have you ever tried to play an FPS with a PS2 controller? And PS2's have the best controller of all the platforms! Nintendo's controllers all suck, (except for the original NES, they weren't bad) and X-box's controllers are even worse, if you can't reach all the buttons on the controller at the same time then the controller is lacking seriously in the ergonomic area. Nothing beats a mouse for pure speed and mobility, especially in FPS's. Plus you have the console's that go aong with games where you can enter cheat codes, and modify things to your hearts desire. Also, you can't make custom maps for a platform game, such as "Halo". With a PC you can.

Anyway, if I had to go platform I would go PS2 all the way.

even played an fps on xbox? the controler was designed or a fps, an the s controler is definitly the best one out, i have seen much better graphics on x-box then i have seen on a computer game. te only way you are gonna be able to make custom maps for halo is if u write the program. i love pcs fps, but nothing will touch halo 2, sorry

eh, I've only played the orig. Halo. I'm talking about the speed and moblity of a good mouse, better yet, an optical mouse will always outdo a platform based controller in an FPS, on the other hand in a game like Tekken1-4 the only thing that will do is the PS2's controller. Me w/ my mouse and comp vs. You w/ your x-box controller in the FPS of your choice, if it were possible. I won't be as presumptious to say I would CRUSH you but that's not the point.

As long as you enjoy it and get a fulfilling gaming experiance out of it, then it serves it's purpose, and you have a valid point, some of Xbox's graphics are better than than PC's, most are the same, but it won't be long before PC's will outdo them all...

Just an my opinion though, and, I see now that it's pointless to argue about because evryone has their loyalties.

im loyal to the best, simple as that....if ps3 kicks xbox next's ass than i will become an official ps3 defender but thats only if its the best. now as for the controller size.......are you like three or sumthing cuz my brother has tiny hands and hes perfectly fine on it.......i find myself having to readjust my hand a ton on the s controller because its so small, i hate those things but i do have large hands but again i no someone else with small hands that has problems with moving his hand to. as for the you winning with a mouse.......i would massacre you because ive played many fps on consoles and pc and im way better with the console. and as for the graphics........soon enough consoles will own all and you gotta buy graphics cards if you want any kind of graphics at all and even then its nothing spectacular but i still cant wait till halo 2 cuz its gonna be even better than halo

ok, i have to ask this......what games does the ps2 have that are so amazing??? the gta series (i think gay but gotta give it to them since everyone loves them so much) and thats all anyone plays or talks about so someone please tell me what games it has because just because it has a million games doesnt make ANY of them good except for a couple because its quality over quantity.

lets see PC blows any other system away as long as it has nice stats on it so i wont vote for it becuase it shouldnt be and option to vote for. kinda like a brass eagle paint compared to Evils or something.

PS2 games u ask? timesplitters 2, GTA: VC and GTA3, Madden 2003, NBA Street. those are all tight there are also games that are shared by xbox and Ps2 that are cool.

Xbox- graphics are nice but no real mindblowing games like VC Halo was great but not a new idea of game just a supercharged FPS.

Gamecube- made for kids no older than 12, sum of the games are fun but all in all it sucks.

And my favorite Current system would be Ps2 becuase i go for gameplay not Graphics. (sega genises and nintendo regular still kick all systems ass)

we have madden, and all football and bball games are the same anyways and thats why i choose not to buy more than one of each but timesplitters is on xbox also and is gay, so when you get down to it you just named me two games.........and i have heard about a dozen people complain about VC becoming boring to them after just playing it for a little bit because it is so much like the first one.......now halo has no new idea??? that was the first game to have such open scenery and it was done so well that it blows almost all other games out of the water except for a couple. now how about we bring the online aspect of gaming into this since it has obviously become a huge part of gaming now.....who wins??? xbox hands down, and that is totally nonbiased and without a doubt right. if you want a list of xbox games that are only on xbox and that are actually really good, not good but really good, than just ask and i will provide you with a list and any other questions you want addressed than just ask away

no, i'm not three, I have deformed hands, ever see Scary Movie 2?

lol, no jk, I have normal size hands I'm just "loyal" to the PS controllers and a mouse because I've gotten used to them. I really wish it were possible to take you up on that challenge. If your good at FPS then you would probably massacre me if we both had PC's but with a console controller? I'll take your word for it...

What doesn't have codes, the PC's versions, or the consoles versions?
