im flashing back to memories of getting the 2.0

so i bought ps2 on sunday along with metal gear solid 2. it was a toss up between ps2 and xbox, but i went to a few stores, they didnt have xbox so i was like aaa what the hell, i'll get the ps2. so far i like ps2 and mgs2 a lot, but is there something im missing with the other console? my friend brought his xbox over the same night i bought the ps2. he brought dead or alive 3 (which i previously played many times at his house) and project gotham racing. pgr was friggin amazing, the graphics are incredible, and i dont believe ps2 can come out with a car game that can touch those graphics. but so im wondering, was it a bad choice to get ps2..i hear there's a lot coming out for xbox, and cd ripping along with 50000 blocks of saving space are awesome. the graphics are so crisp. so clear. but everyone's saying ps2 will have the better games. oh and needless to say, my friend and i played mgs2 for most of the time he was over
i guess if xbox does get some really good stuff, i'll buy one later on. hell, the ps2 is in my brothers room. i just walked in and he has a dvd playing while he's sleeping. that little bastard.

Re: Should I Regret My PS2 Purchase? (dj tanner)

Dude, don't sweat it. I am the biggest supporter of Xbox, I preordered a bundle and have been enjoying it ever since. But I've missed out on:
MGS2
Splashdown
GTA3
Tony Hawk 3 (even though I beat it over my friends house)
Jak and Daxter (looks strangely cool)
more to come...
There is no doubt Xbox has its Shiz together. 10 gb hard drive, ethernet, most powerful graphics of any home console, and a controller which IS GOOD. In the end it is still all about the games though. Granted some of those listed will be coming out on Xbox in the next couple months, they are out now on PS2. I truly enjoy Halo and PGR, and Madden (while frustratingly hard for a non-football player) is enjoyable. The news of Halo being internet compatable via some hackers and hubs is big news, and I will be trying it out as soon as I can move my TV into my room. Both systems have bright futures so you'll be ok. With Christmas coming up, if you still want Xbox get it then, you'll have best of both worlds! Just enjoy the PS2 and if you don't....SELL IT!

Ummm...have you ever played GT3: A-Spec? The graphics are crisper, cleaner, and the environments are better. I'm now a supporter of the XBOX (especially since GameCube is just a more powerful N64...same stupid-ass proprietary media), but Project Gotham doesn't hold a candle to GT3. Then again, I didn't like MSR on the DC, so I may be biased. I hate arcadey racing games...damned GT series has spoiled me.
PS2 has the software power, XBOX has the hardware power...I'm going to be getting both again (sold my PS2 a month back) and when games are released for both systems, I'll likely be buying the XBOX versions. The XBOX controller does suck big ones though...the DC controller is still my all-time fave.

Re: Should I Regret My PS2 Purchase? (SchrickVR6)

I honestly think the xbox's graphics aren't as good as gamecube's... Not yet anyways. The xbox's graphics look like a high end PC game, which still has jaggies, and halo doesn't run all that smooth. rogue leaders textures are so much more smooth and colorful. Some of the tricks super monkey ball uses are incredible too. Smash bro's looks insane too...
From what i've seen/played on xbox, it is good, dont get me wrong, but it needs time to uncover the power it has...
Also, you gotta realize, nintendo has done things their own way since they have started. They are going to continue to be different in their designs. I think the gamecube is a much better designed system then the xbox. The compactness is awesome, and alot lighter then xbox.... I also have big hands, and find the gamecube controller to be very comfortable even after a long time playing monkeyball....

I second that. This game is the reason I bought a PS2 last week. It's become my new second job.

Really? Wow, Metroid's always been one of my favorites. I've played through the NES, SNES and Gameboy versions dozens of times. For me, N64's biggest dissapointment was not having a new Metroid game.

Re: Should I Regret My PS2 Purchase? (passatrcr)

Should your regret your PS2 purchase? No way.
Right now it has the best games available right now. If graphics are the biggest thing to you, then jump ship to Xbox. But currently, you're not missing much. The only real reason Halo is such a huge hit on Xbox is because it wasn't released on PC first. It's not that much different than any other FPS.
DOA3? You have Tekken 4 and VF4 just around the corner for PS2.
PGR? Cool game, but can't hold a candle to GT3 for playing experience. Reminds me of a hi-po version of the Ridge Racer series. Which isn't much of a good thing.
What else do you have left til next year?A few remakes are on the way for Xbox this season but beyond that, not much else.
At least hold out til Final Fantasy X to make your decision.

man don't forget about the tekken series. Tekken Tag Tournament for the ps2 is just as good if not better than DoA3. Plus Tekken four is due out on Ps2 in march!!! Tekken four is the Sh!t!!! I go to the arcade at lease once a week just to play it!

Dude.....crack is bad ok?
The Dreamcast controller makes my whole hand sore from playing F355 for more then 1/2 hour, it's probably one of the worst designed controllers yet. Gamecube? Are we 12? Do we need Mario smash brothers on every system?

NO THANKS
