Yes, I agree. However, I find Xbox can be cut with a fork, and goes down smooth, like a good filet. Ahhhhhhhh, Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Gooooooooood.

PS2? I have to upgrade to a good serrated knife and wash it down with something. Tastes like hamburger. Hey, where's the ketchup?

Gamecube? I have to marinate it for weeks, then I have to use a cleaver to get it into manageble pieces for a newly sharpened German made Henkels knife. After all that it still tastes like Swiss Steak. Hey! Ain't the guy next eating filet?

Did you know that they had to take the rain out in Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon for PS2. IMHO, if PS2 tried to import Halo onto their platform, it would fry the graphics card.

But I do agree, PS2 does have a lot more games than xbox. Like Silent hill, fatal frame, manhunt, posatal 2, and let's not forget, Grand Theft Auto. ;D

PS2would be rather hard to bring around with you.It's so tall http://www.geocities.com/zappyzane/newsandinfo/playstation2.jpg But Xbox is small enough to fit into a suitcase.


What I have noticed is that the PS2 is always out of order when I go to Walmart, or Kmart. Last week or so I went to a new Target and the PS2 was broken. Why am I not suprised?

i'm not gonna take part in this, but i had to comment. how can you say that the X-box is the size of a laptop? have you seen the Mac Notebooks? they are super-thin! about as thin as a regular newspaper. in fact, a normal laptop is about the thickness (if not less) than a Sunday newspaper. X-box? not that small. ;)

I could just say "METROID Nuff sed" as my argument... but that's lame...
For me it goes like this

Metroid, Mario, Zelda, F-Zero. A few great series exclusively on Nintendo.
What does Sony have that interests me? Final Fantasy. No more. Nothing else appeals to me. Especially not GTA. Waaay too immoral for me.

X-Box is a PC trying to be a console. It's Microsoft trying to buy out ANOTHER set of computers.
Its first person shooters interest me, but not enough to buy one. anyway most of the X-Box games are on PC too so why buy an X-Box?

I grew up on playstation, and it has the best games (when the games aren't on other consoles), and the most awesome controller!

Sometimes I wish some games from the other two systems were on PS2, though. But, besides that...PS2 ROCKS!! :afro: ;D

The only thing is I started out with an original NES. Best thing besides Sega Genises (Did I spell that right?) for the price. When PS1 came out, my mom and dad bought it for $120!

The X-Box is a good breezeblock. A useful weapon when dropped on a sister's head... LOL!

Nintendo could STILL be good competition even if all the 2nd and 3rd parties left them. they still have all the MArio, MEtroid and Zelda games.

IF MS and Sony lost their 3rd parties. Needless to say that'd be the end of them.

I'll always go Nintendo. Sure they may not have as large a variety of games as PS does but how many of Nintendo's games suck? How many of PS1/2s games suck? I rest my case...

Naw, I'm just foolin', but I still absolutely LOVE the NES. Sorry, you can call me old school, but I really grew up on those games (Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge, Solstice, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, etc.) so they're a part of me, really. But my attachment streches also to the SNES, 'cause I grew up on games like Super Metoid and Actraiser 2 and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

So really, I treat both systems equally. Or, I wish I could, but I know or like so little on the SNES but I remember a bunch on NES games I liked. When the SNES came out, during the short period of my life when I was allowed to rent video games, I had little to no skill. So Doom was out of the question. :P But Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars made me stay with the SNES until my Dad could find copies of Super Metroid and Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Dang, I wish I owned Chrono Trigger.

Well, the Game Cube is the leading amount of graphics, it does have mor controller ports, than the PS2,

Gamecube, and leading graphics are 3 words that cannot be used in the same sentence. Xbox is simply in my opinion the best. The graphics in most games are clean, the load times are faster, it has a built in HDD , no memory cards needed ( that has spoiled me), certain games, like tony hawk and matt hoffman, you can use your own soundtrack rather than their crappy ones. The Xbox controllers are simpler, and fit better. Xbox also has games like Halo and Fable. It has 4 ports , over PS2's 2, though PS2 plays dvd movies stock, xbox you need a 30 $ converter+control. IMO , I give Xbox a 9, PS2 a 7, and the GC.. i havent played it too much, but it has too many 'kiddy' games..

I broke my cleaner while cleaning it. DON"T ASK HOW!

Tip of advice: If it clears your data cut it off, blow it and wait to tommorow. Cause After I restarted the game, frusterated about the memory deletion, I started playing again. The next day, I turned it on to re-continue my quest, and my two other files were, so I overwritten my old file. It's just a glitch, so just wait, or file be deleted.

My mother-in-law got my son Mario Party 5 for his birthday and they have had that thing on all day...

Nope, I am the opposite. If it looks like a cartoon, it subtracts gameplay. Otherwise I am fine with playing games that humor me. Mario Party isn't all that bad, better with friends (and not siblings) I'd assume.

I can't wait for KOTOR 2 either, course I also can't wait for DOOM 3 on XBOX, Half Life 2, HALO 2, Starcraft Ghost just to name a few.

I now have more reason to consider getting a PS2. I saw an ad on Gamespot for: Neo Contra! 'Bout time someone made a new Contra game.

Yes I have! This is the first time I've ever heard of a major redesign of a console like that, and this one is pretty radical.

Howabout the PSOne? That was fairly radical. :P Anyways, did you notice that the DS has two screens (I think)?

animeraven34
10-30-2004, 02:02 PM
I never payed any attention to PSOne. :P

Yes the DS has two screens, why do you think they named it the DS (Dual Screens)? Also, the bottom screen is a touch screen.

Oh, wow, it's a touch screen? By the way, I had no clue what DS meant. For all I knew it meant "Dumb Stick" :P

animeraven34

Yup, its a second display and a touch screen. On games like Metroid you can have the map or your menus and similar things on the bottom screen. I know a lot of people who think the DS is a dumb idea but I think its cool. Hmmm, I wonder if Microsoft is gonna make a portable system now?

disciple

They already have handheld PCs. ;)


Also, I read that the DS can be used as a chat medium between two DS's within a certain area. You can either insert letters or draw (or write) to them. I think it's a cool idea. The Mic idea might be a waste of time, especially with Mario Party 6.

Yeah. A mic would be stupid. Regarding the PSP, I heard that it's supposed to be able to play movies. But 185 bucks for one?! I think the DS's price is more reasonable, its only 140.

$185 is generous. Why? Because a handheld DVD player goes for more than that nowadays. So adding a mere $30 for a hand held DVD Player is generous.


And Sony doesn't suck. Their platformers are FAR better than the stuff Nin's been dishin' out recently (save Metroid Prime 1 & 2, no matter what). Jak 3 and R&C: Up Your Arsenal are comin' out, and I can't wait to get my hands on 'em!

Sony and Nintendo are neck-and-neck with me. They both have games that I could play forever. Sega's cool too - the Dreamcast had some games that are pretty memorable, if I do say so myself. Skies of Arcadia and such.

I never said that the PSP could play DVD's. It's not big enough to fit a DVD in it. As far as it being $185, I have never payed that much for any gaming console, and the reason I say that seems high is because you just know they are gonna drop the price here pretty soon after it comes out. Besides $185 is more than half of what I make every month. There are three reasons that I like Nintendo over Sony (I never said Sony sucked) and Microsoft: 1) Most of the games that come out for PS2 and XBOX don't appeal to me. I don't play sports games (ever), don't care for adventure games, and I kinda suck at fighting games. 2) Nintendo and SEGA are partners now. 3) I like Nintendo's minimalistic approach; they put out game consoles for GAMING, nothing else (with the exception of the DS I suppose). When I said I will always be a SEGA man I was refering more to the Genesis, CD, 32x, old school SEGA.

I didn't say YOU said Sony sucked, I was speaking in general. I guess I got lazy and didn't add that guy's quote in there. :-\ And playing movies, I guess they'd have to make new types of movies for the PSP.

Sorry. :-[ I'm a bit grumpy today, didn't mean to go off like that. Uh, I remember reading an article that mentioned something about how the PSP was gonna play movies, but I don't remember. I do remember that it was at gamespot.com though.

No problem. And I added the Dreamcast in there 'cause no one seems to remember it even exsisted. I think it had some great games. And classic Sonic games were among my favorites.

Nintendo knows wireless. Just look at the facts: Wavebird and DS. Nothing compares to the Gamecube's Wavebird. And the DS is pretty awesome, too. I was playing with some guys yesterday, and we wanted to see how far it would go. So we sent one of them out the door (we were in a classroom), down a veerry long hallway (I'd say about 50-60 feet), and around the corner to the soda machines. He made it all the way to the machines before he got disconnected. So, the connection went through a wall, and about 60 feet. Pretty good, don't you think?

Oh, and the games are fun too. ;D :P
