    defo not the gamecube, its outdated and out-performed by the others, but it just comes down to game choice and manufacturer preference after that, i`ve got a PS1 and an Xbox, which i think is great, i like microsoft stuff and i prefer the controllers which is y i got it.(and xbox live kicks a$$)

    Im more than happy with this years releases on the PS2, some cracking games, still going through Colin McRae 2005, excellent game with so much to do.

    whilst i do like the new slim ps2m i'd have to say xbox


    the only thing PS2 really has in it's favour is the gran tourismo series... but take a look at forza motorsport, and you'll see that by all accounts xbox is going to get it's very own racing simulator to rival GT4. lot of money has been poured into forza to make sure it can stand up to gt4... so it should be pretty good!

    It's a balance between versatilty etc.

    As people say, forget Gamecube.

    Xbox has a better graphics engine, mainly because the technology is much newer than the PS2.

    but... the PS2 can play DVD's, has a much much much amd did I say much larger number of games available.
    Obviously not all are great, but you get good games coming out on platinum, cheap and tastee !

    So my vote went for the PS2.

    thanks for the input folks.

    Im not worried about playing dvd`s as i have a player for that.

    Which out of the ps2 and xbox will last the longest.

    Im worried if i get a ps2 soon a ps3 will come out a month or so after (sods law)
    im bored !

    remeber psone commin out shortly before PS2 hit the shelves... think that's why the slim ps2 is out now, costing only £99. Try to get some more units shifted before PS3 comes out.. still worth buying imo. ull get a ps2 cheaper 2nd hand than an xbox, and a huge number of games availible. plus u can get old games preowned in GAME and other stores for under £10. 2nd hand games are a bargain - unlike a vhs tape ro book or somethin, where the quality can deteriorate, a game on cd/dvd will "perfect" (so long as it boots, and GAME test them all) u would never know it wasnt brand new when u play it.
