    is there something in particular you are looking for ?

    in terms of pure tech... the ps2 cannot compare to the xbox...

    in terms of gaming titles... now there you have a different story...

    just overall value, best bang for the buck type of thing...

    xBox, I hate my PS2 it's failed to impress me from day one, because I previously (and still do) owned a Dreamcast, which in my opinion, is still better than the PS2.

    So I'd go with the xBox, or possibly a gamecube, I actually quite like the gamecube, its a nice unit with some top games ;)

    The truth still remains that PS2's library of games can not be touched by the Xbox. On top of that, I am a BIG RPG fan and let's face it... Xbox doesn't have crap for RPG games. I would say PS2. Not saying that the PS2 is better than the Xbox or anything (Xbox is a year newer than PS2), just that there is more to games than graphics. Content is more important. Sports games, go Xbox. RPGs, go PS2.

    What's next for MS? Keep feeding the bear and it will eat you too! Doesn't MS have a big enough chunk of the pie? Just keep that in mind folks, the next time you scream "Monopoly."

    ok, first off I could care less about how big of MS is, I do care however how I spend my money and I don't want my money going into a crappy game system if there is a better choice for the same money...

    Personally I think if Ford made a game system that was better than any out there I would buy it, so all in all I'm looking for Value for the $$$$ not "how much money does this company have, cause if they have too much I'm not buying"

    if you think that way, you prolly would have bought ENRON stock.

    but keep the opinions coming anyway..... Thanks:)

    Dude, its coming out for the PC soon, i heard it was the summer, but i havnt checked in a while.

    And personally i think an Xbox is the best choice, u can have some nice graphics, and there are good games out for it, and also, new games are GOING to come out soon. So if you want to have a good system for the long term, or short term, i think an Xbox is the way to go :)

    Ps2, because its a bit cheaper where i am and it has so many more games for it and you can play with older Ps games!

    Too little too late, it should have been out for PC sometime around the XBox launch, but M$ bought out Bungie and killed the PC orientation of the game. It'll be out done on PC by all of the newer games.

    if the visuals of the game are anywhere close to that on the xbox... :) the product will look amazing... and note that the game PLAYS well... its story line is FUN... and MP aspects are good...

    I had more fun playing halo than another shooter that came out pretending to be like halp... unreal II...
