Best console:

Xbox based on hardware
PS2 based on games available
PS1 based on price
Gamecube based on weird trendyness.

Just get one of each...








Or buy a decent PC

I couldn't agree more, all the consoles are out realy nice but are just not worth it. For me personally the concept of a console has outdone its time. Its quite obvious that PCs are much more capable, make a console that runs PC games and has a big enough hard drive and then I'll think about buying one....otherwise NO!!!

It has, would you believe, been asked before. Should this thread continue, I will submit my (actually someone else's, that I will plagiarise) views; I hope, however, that this thread and this godforsaken topic, more well-trodden than any other path in history, ends right now.

I'd say x-box based on hardware, but dammit, it's microsoft, and it's just a fucking computer. PS2 considering it's a solid, definitely games-only system.

Xbox has higher hardware specs than the gamecube tho....But unless microsoft can get bulk quality games out i think the ps2 wins hands down...

Nintendo will likely go down the same path a sega and atari...

For me I say GameCube. So it doesn't play DVD's big deal go :cry: about it if you want. It plays games, really good games at that and it will do it well. If I want to play a PS2 or X-Box game, I'll get it on my pc because it will do it a lot better. I don't see why people dis the GC, so it isn't as powerful as the rest. Is all people care about the graphics card in their box? I'd prefer better games over that.

Some people will buy a PS2/XB for a DVD drive, I already have one. Some people will buy them for the games, I use my PC for those type of games that dominate their market.

Alright, fuck it. Here goes, and FUCKING READ THIS before you post anything else:

[Said by PabUK to an Xbox fan];
Quote:
You do not understand the average gamer. You have to move away from the fact that you are a PC enthusiast and consider the position of someone who just wants to play games. All they will know is "x is more powerful than y", few other technical details come into it. What is far more important though is what everyone else thinks of it and what the games are like. Xbox does not have more support than PS2, far less in fact. Graphics are just not as important as you believe. Look how long the original Playstation stuck around despite how underpowered it was. And now PS2 has been out a good length of time there is a huge collection of excellent (and CHEAP) games around now.
Faster and newer does not win a console war on those terms alone.
Not a complete argument, but pretty good.
