    unless you have a lot of time free, buy none.

    Buy PC games by all means-you will be on your pc anyhow

    Its only worth buying if you will use it-trust me i know.
    Such is life.

    oh yeh i forgot to say-you may think you will play the games to death, but i bet you wont...so buy PC games..the others are tat anyway.


    except that hmm oh yes Halo, and Buffy on Xbox-they are good.

    mario was released on cube in UK yesterday, and my boss bought it---she's a bit angry-says its poor.

    PS2? hmm well lots of choice..hehe

    Well, its no good buying one because you are waiting for a certain game!

    I did mean lots of choice btw yes...

    Choose the one with the most games that you like...

    Cube is Nintendo. what more do you need.Remember the old Nintendo games? Wow.


    Course PS2 hugeley supported!

    And x-box....chip it, rip out the HD, replace it with 120gb HDD, have a broadband conn, then never pay for another game again..oh yes you will need that controller software thingy.

    Beats paying for games though huh?

    I sure wish I wouldn't have bought my X-Box, because I barely ever play it. I haven't even played it since the end of July!

    only reason i'm leaning towards ps2 is because i'm starting to like rpgs a bit... especially after programming a few... and i kinda like some of the racing games... i'm going to compare release dates... but all in all i'm about 75.9% sure that ps2 is worth it... but i'm about 80% sure that I won't even have to sell my cube... :D

    PS2:

    1) More game choices

    2) Better game play.

    3) Average Price

    4) Has ATV Offroad Fury

    And what is wrong with PC games (A.Nothing) in your opinion.

    I never said there was anything wrong with pc games... but a group of friends can't sit around a computer and play a game together... as opposed to a console game.

    PC games are the best. i wont play any game that doesn't have multiplayer. The other day I bought Soldier of Fortune 2 for $90AU ($45US) and I couldn't play it cause my crappy graphics card is crap. Now I have to wait till I get a new PC. I'm soon getting my own PC (not the 'family computer') in my room. To get it i just need to save up another $315 !! WOOOHOO!

    Why would there be? Just becuase a console is 2 years old, that doesn't actually change it at all.
