    Don't forget PS1...some of us haven't splurged on the upgrade to PS2. As far as X-box, M$ has already gotten enough of my money.:p

    Well, I own an Xbox. I don't think there is anything wrong with it though. It has some pretty good games out like Halo, DOA3, JSRF, etc. I bought it because it has the most value for your money. With a built in Hard Drive, Ethernet Port for Online Gaming, and 4 controller ports, out of the box, that's a pretty good deal if you ask me. On the other hand, for the PS2 to do the same, you gotta buy a multitap, modem add-on, hard drive add-on = LOTS OF $$. The con that the Xbox has is that you need to buy a $30 DVD remote to play DVDs...

    I just use my PC to play any games, no need to waste my money on a seperate games console, that is inferior to my PC. :D

    I have to say, I've been a console freak forever. Still have a bag full o'Atari 2600 junk to prove it. Moved on to the NES, SNES, N64, and now have a PS2. That being said, playing games on my shiny new computer is sweet. When it works.

    Only console I own is SNES! I should drag it out and let the kids play it for a while but it might not be good enough for them. :rolleyes:

    The only thing I don't like about consoles is that they're single purpose (even though they do that one thing well), while the PC is so much more versatile.
