playstation 3 i hope will not be out for another 3-4 years, ps2 just came out like 3 years ago, playstation came out like 8 years ago, and not to mention, the new ps2 slimmer versions coming out, i understand they need to make money and stuff but jesus christ not every kid in the world has like $200 bucks to shell out whenever a new system comes out.

soooo let me get this straight...

you dont want a new system to come out..like a ps3...which will still play ALL of your old ps2 games? Am I following?

ps2 isnt making many games anymore it seems..the production of games has already begun to slow..sooo..I have a solution..dont buy it..

Consoles typically run a 4-5 year lifespan. Knowing this you could have set up a system of saving money so that you would be prepared when the PS3 arrived. Remember this for PS4 :)

hey I look foward to the PS3 so the XBOX won't be the
only system with super graphics not that the PS2 dosen't

but that seems to be the only thing the Xboxers have to brag
about,

go figure,:confused:

yeah halo is really stupid. im not gonna just say its over-rated, i will just go all out and say the game is down right retarded. And like seminole said, their games ain't nothing compared to the stuff that ps2 has.

Anyone ever play NFL Fever?? Yeah thats an Xbox game. Halo? thats an Xbox game.

Also I just think that Halo is so over-rated becuz, all xboxers know that xbox sucks, and they can stand up for themselves by saying "Oh yeah? well xbox in time has all the games ps2 has, plus we have the almighty halo", give me a break

when i played halo i laughed, from how stupid it was

I'm a fan of the xbox, I know it doesn't suck. My personal preference when purchasing games is to get the xbox version. Aside from cross console titles, I've really enjoyed such games as Ninja Gaiden, Knights of the Old Republic, Fable, Chronicles of Riddi.ck, Dead or Alive 3, Otogi... need I go on? Those games are some of the best of their genres, the system isn't overhyped, but under-appreciated.

Well if you like those kinda games, then yea..great..but otherwise, yes I would say go on.

but how many copies do they actually sell? Star wars seems to make different games for different consoles..so I could argue that..and Rid****? dude come on..Ive never seen a game inspired by a movie.. worthy of 10 hours of playing time...also basically any game Xbox comes out with, is available for ps2 and IF ITS NOT..its available for PC..ganes such as socom for example..are not (at least i dont think)

How about GT4?, your precious lil "need for speed underground" does not even begin to compare to the GT series.... Metal gear solid? Also The GTA series..(and yes it eventually comes out for XBOX), SOCOM...if shooting lil blue aliens who turn to green s--- is your thing (or paying for online play)...then buy an xbox

It's pretty clear, based on your "arguements", that you haven't played any of the games I've listed above. If you think you have me pegged as an xbox only consumer, let's be clear- I own a 2 PS2's, 1 Xbox, 3 Gamecubes, and almost every other console that's come out since the NES. So it's not like you are going to start a console war topic and get my goat. I'm simply tring to explain that quality software, other than Halo, comes out on this fine system. If you want to compare games you don't have any knowledge of, then I'm out on this topic.

Your right, xbox does have quality software, but there are people who seem to think the xbox is 3-4 years ahead of ps2 or gamecube..that is what gets annoying..you seem to not be one of those people, and by your first comment, i probably jumped to a conclusion that you were..so I apologize for that..

yes, I have played Rid**** and didnt think to highly of it, Old repb..yes I will have to agree with you on that. Xbox only seems "overhyped" because If what I stated earlier, how some xbox fanatics see it as compared to the new ps3..how can you compare something that hasnt even hit the market yet...again, my argument is that xbox is overrated and is relatively equal to the ps2..and again I apologize if I jumped to a conclusion with you

I play both and i like them the same its just playstations game have slowed down and since ea sports has xbox live i play madden on xbox but im not close minded i know that need for speed will never be as good as the Gran Turismo series and i know socom is better than ghost recon and most other x-box games. I just don't like how playstation 2 online is compared to x-box live but i also hate paying to play online. Thats pretty much all i have to say

wow, you guys are showing alot of intelligence here ( not :mad: )

The Xbox is the best console better sound, better graphics, more practical, way better online multiplayer, and it doesnt break after 4 years!!!

you guys are kidding yourselves.

Yes, i too believe halo is overrated, but is there any FPS on PS2 thats better?

SOCOM :D I VOMENT ON YOUR CRAP GAME

PS: I LOVE PS2 AS WELL THOUGH

WHATS WITH COMPARING GT to NFSU? they are both on PS2, anyway the best GT was GT2, AND BESIDES "XBOXERS" HAVE Forza, burnout3 and project gotham. haha GT4 wont even be online!!!

hahahah..YES!

and to the guy who said "vomit" on socom...socom was probably the reason consoles started becoming so involved in internet play..you say you agree with us that halo is overrated..yet you say there is no better FPS..I would take Killzone before Halo..and killzone was a sub-par game, hence, its place with Halo.

and yes..I WILL ALWAYS take any GT over any NFS game...

GT=wide selection
NFS=tons of ricers..hell they even take american cars ricerize them, by adding those big ass mufflers

Closed minded consumers only hurt themselves. I own both.

Also, Xbox 2 drops before ps3. This gives Microsoft the opportunity to sell more units than Sony, getting the head start and all. On the flipside, it gives Sony more time to one-up Microsoft as far as hardware and options.

edit: The biggest advantage xbox has over ps2 is xbox live. It rocks.

sorry for my earlier comments, it just, i believe that anyone who thinks ps2 is better than xbox, is just kidding themselves. i do like ps2 cause it has far far more games. i am anything but close minded :)

I also own both..and I do think they both have their perks for example..Xbox live is set up very well..but it costs money, i dont really care to pay when the only games I will be playing online are 25tolife and the SOCOM series..

I do however think the graphics on Xbox are hyped..I believe PS2 and XBOX are to closely related in that aspect, if you like more rpg games, Id say buy an Xbox, but a person like me, who is more into the socoms, gtas, gt series, and sports games (which both ps2 and xbox offer anyways) ..id prefer the game selection, but I will admit..both xbox are ps2 have become very very very poor in their game production as of late, but we all know why..

im not sure what you mean, i dont think anyone has ever measured the intelligence of a box of wet hammers. just one look at your name BEER? tells me your either a child, a lay about drunk, or some fool who thinks it funny to name their self after an alcoholic beverage. however your probably all of the above :)
