I never had a normal playstation...I never really wanted one cause I preferred n64. I got a psone when it came out and played some of the games people had been raving about years prior and loved em, so in retrospect I realized I should've gotten a playstation even though I had an n64

So with that I went and got a ps2 and it broke after less than a year. YAY! My xbox is a fucking tank and can withstand all the shit I've put it through. My choice for next gen consoles won't be hard

Probably gonna get the next nintendo eventually too cause I still like my gamecube and it hasn't disappointed me yet.

What the fuck do you do to your consoles?!? If a system needs to be a tank in order to survive your ownership, I dunno what to say. Both my ps1 and ps2 still work just as great as the first day I bought them. I also haven't seen any degradation in the DVD player for the ps2, either.

Anyway, I could count the number of games on XBox that I liked on one hand. Let's see...Halo, Halo 2 (OMG DUAL WIELD), ummmmmmmm...Fable? Help me out here. On the other hand, ps2 had some great games that I liked in most genres:
Fighting: Oh shit like Guilty Gear, Soul Calibur III, Tekken was ok...
Racing: Gran Turismo if you like realism, Midnight Club if you like modding, Burnout if you like insane crashing (that one is multi-platform though), plus SSX (also multi-platform).
Action/Adventure: Devil May Cry, Castlevania, Shadow of the Colossus, Katamari Damacy & sequel, Sly Cooper is kinda young but still a great game, and don't forget that GTA made its debut on the sony systems.
Shooters: I'm not really into these so I don't know much about it, but I liked the Ratchet and Clank games.
RPGs: Disgaea, Makai Kingdom to name a few of many.

I also thought the online play gave me what I wanted: a chance to play with/against other people online. I still play Burnout and SSX online, and they're pretty fun. It's also convenient that it's free.

I'm sure the 360 is a technological marvel, but I don't see how that would matter to me if I buy a system that has games that I don't want to play...really, it's just a matter of preference. I don't think any next-gen system would really "fail". Sure, one may be ahead of sales than the others, but do the figures actually mean anything to you? "OH MY GOD...I thought blahblahblah was soooooo much fun until I found out that they sold 2.3 million less than its competitors. I didn't realize my games were so shitty!" Ya, it would be nice if the ps3 came out on top, but if it didn't, I think I'd still have a great gaming experience with it.

Seriously, don't be afraid of a little competition. It's healthy!

I've had parties and shit where people *gasp* have placed drinks and stuff on them, I've played em a lot, moved them around a few times in my backpack or whatever, etc. I don't put them through rigorous tests to see if they'll make it, just do normal shit with them. I'm not saying my consoles need to be BUILT FORD TOUGH, ya dumb cunt, but maybe fucking lasting would work? I don't know if we got a bad batch here in Canada, but like I said, damn near every single one of my friends who owned a ps2 had it crap out of em, even if they never moved it, kept it safe, etc.

As for games, yeah it's about preference. So far I've preferred games with superior graphics and the ps2 exclusives haven't interested me one fucking bit so I've never really wanted a ps2 except for recently cause I wanna play shadow of colossus. Overall most ps2 games didn't interest me and the ones that did were already on xbox or coming to it as a better version. Does it matter that the new GTAs came out on ps2 first? They're better on xbox and I'm not a fanboy who can't wait.

Whatever though. I'm not anti-sony or anything I was just majorly disappointed with the ps2.

Xbox was my favorite this console generation hands down. I loved the Halo games. Sorry, call me a frontrunning fag, but they're just good. The Splinter Cell series, which might as well be Xbox exclusive is now my favorite new franchise. Project Gotham is also my favorite racing game.

Nobody here mentioned Xbox live. Easily the best online on any system. Which the 360 is going to have on launch.

Well the graphics chips and such were remarkable at the time, and everyone had predicted that the system would wipe the floor with the competition. But as you stated, the PS2 ended up having many flaws, and that games are better with more sprites on the screen than with smooth anti-aliasing.
Why am I arguing with you? I am an Xbox man too.... even though gamecube has all my favorite games.


In relation to another conversation in this thread, I remember a couple years ago that some hick shot his wife's Xbox, and it was still perfectly fine afterwards.

tesco extra (supermarket) will be getting them in on a first-come first served on launch day, so there is still hope!

So has anyone else played on yet? I played a display model and I must say the graphics are a let-down. I played King Kong, and it really only looked a little better than an Xbox. A PC will still own this system, which is disappointing. The only good thing is the controller which is quite a bit smaller and simply felt much better in my hands. I may consider getting a controller if it works with PCs and is wireless, but I'm going to save my coins for a PS3 instead.

Speaking about PS2 problems, did anyone here stand their ps2 up sideways and have troubles with it?

I left my PS1 up sideways once and it ruined the CD reader. I've heard similar problems for the PS2 too.

All xbox 360 games that we've seen so far aren't using even a quarter of the graphical power that it has. I got to play it at the shitty Wal-Mart the screen was way up and i got a neck cramp playing Kameo and COD2. Both very fun. The controller's a beautiful thing, too.

I think it must be the batch, I bet Australia and New Zeland are the only one's to get a perfect batch. So far I've only heard 1 person who had to repair their PS2 because it broke down on them.
