    Man, I really hate Microsoft...

    Yeah, yeah, yeah... But I have a real reason for
    hating them.

    For the past few months (since E3), I couldn't
    decide on what new console to buy this November.
    Xbox or GameCube? I was leaning towards GC, but
    hadn't all-the-way decided yet...

    I hate bundles. I only want to buy the system,
    not be forced to buy the system + a game + two
    third-party periphials + a duck. It's lame.

    Anywho, apparently Micro$oft (that is how you express
    your hatred for them, right? Replacing the "S"
    with an "$"?) is forcing retailers to sell pre-
    orders of the Xbox as bundles. Dumb!

    In order to get an Xbox by Christmas, you must
    pre-order an Xbox, a Microsoft game, two third-
    party games, and an extra controller. Dumb (again)!

    I guess Nintendo just won my money, baby. Peh,
    they probably were going to anyway.

    That's all I have to say about that...

    And you know what I really hate? I'll tell you. I hate Kraft Macaroni and Cheese! In fact, I hate all macaroni and cheese! It is one of the utterly most disgusting things on the planet.

    When I was young, I liked to eat that powdered-
    cheese straight out of the packet.

    Mmmm, powdered-cheese.

    Easy. The Dreamcast was/is a better system than
    the Playstation 2. It's sad that it's almost dead.

    LOL!

    Yet again, how do you figure? You can't give me opinions. I need to see some reasons.

    Because buying into the evil Sony empire is no different than buying into MS

    i'm convinced that sony and M$ are planning on controlling every market for every item in the united states of america. Microshaft gets computer related fields, and sony gets everything else.. i can't wait to see sony brand potato chips.

    I was at this years' E3 and wasn't impressed at all by XBox (no good games, and i hated that stupid overweight controller). It was Gamecube that really got my attention, there line-up of games was just amazing (luigi's mansion, pikmin, some star wars fighter<this one looked AUSOME>, a new wave race, a new smash bros.). But who knows, i have'nt really checked out what titles will be coming out for XBox. As for ps2, i love its sleek look; and Gran Turismo 3? ohh baby... That game kicks some major ........... Yeah, i thought that dreamcast was cool too. at least sega will be making games for everyone else (sony, nintendo, microsoft).

    I used to hate GC, but now i don't think that it's that bad...

    too bad nintendo is more in the market of the 2year old instead of the 12 year old... too bad.

    The games are better. Dreamcast: Soul Calibur,
    Skies of Arcadia, Phantasy Star Online, Sonic
    Adventure, Outtrigger, Shenmue, Seaman, Capcom
    2D Fighters...

    Dreamcast has 4 controller ports. Playstation 2
    only has 2 controller ports. Sony wants you to
    buy their multi-tap. Lame.

    Dreamcast has a built-in 56k modem for free online
    gaming. Sony wants you to buy a modem.

    Bleamcast! Very cool. Too bad Sony is pressuring
    retailers not to sell it. Lame (again).

    There's a lot of things that can be done on the
    Dreamcast. Check out www.dcemulation.com. I
    haven't tried any of them, but they sound cool.

    Enough reasons?
    Please excuse spelling/grammar. I'm tired

    Nothing like Sony's lineup.

    GT3
    Madden 2002
    THPS3
    ICO
    FFX
    SSX: Tricky
    MGS2
    Tekken 4, SC2, DOA3
    I could go on forever...

    How often do you play 4 players? Also, out of the sweet DC games you listed above, how many are 4 players?

    56k = Crap
    Sony will have ethernet and it is well worth $40. Do you have any idea how much a PC cable modem costs? (hint - $200).

    I never understood this thing. Do you use it to play your DC games over your PC?

    I don't buy a console system to do anything but play games.
