what do you prefer PS2 or Xbox?

this is a discussion within the NOLA Community Forum; It'll be worth it. Besides, when I bought my Xbox when they were going for $249, I got mine off E-Bay for $160. Never had a problem with it ever and it came with a game. You can always find ...

I am gonna het the PS3 as well. The Nintendo Revolution could be nice cause you can download ALL the old Nintendo games for every nintendo game system, all the way back to the first one. I heard they were gonna charge like $6-$8 per download though so that will probably steer me away. PS3 and 360 will be more than enough.

I don't know, I converted to Xbox from PS2. I didn't like the original controller but that disappeared quickly. I don't even use the PS2 anymore. Xbox has no memory cards... I thought a hard drive on a console was supposed to be a joke according to Sony when the Xbox came out, now look everyone wants a hard drive on their console. Go figure.

PS2 is fun, but I don't think there is any game on the system that can top Halo, Halo2, Cronicles of Riddick for graphics. The controller is the same as the PS2 and I've gotten to where I can't play with anything else.

I saw 360, all I can say is WOW. And it's backwards compatable too.

What has anyone heard about the PS3 or "Revolution"?

I think both we're caught with their pants down fighting each other over handheld games and Microsoft slipped in a fast one with 360. I think it's only a matter of time for Nintendo friends.

newshound, play God of War on PS2, then get back to me on graphics. Best graphics I have ever seen for either system, hands down. And one of the best games ever. xbox does have memory cards, you jusy use them to transport date to a friends house or such. I bought the hard drive for PS2 and I have to say that was a HUGE waste. It's practically useless. I thought it would allow me to save games like Xbox. Uh uh. That was a waste.

Halo 2 is only good for online. The campaign is crap. And I think GTA, Gran Turismo, God of War can give those games a huge run for their money.

PS3 is being released in 2006 for a specific reason: Microsoft outdid PS2 by coming out second, and Sony will not repeat that mistake. they could have pushed it out around the same time or sooner, but they didn't wanna repeat that error. Trust me, they were not caught anywhere near with their pants down. And the nintendo Revolution has the capability of downloading EVERY Ninetendo game ever made. That will push its sales as well. Sony knew what it was doing releasing after Xbox, and it was smart on their part. With the announcements of the featuers the PS3 will have, They will have no problem at all competing.

Goodness I read stuff on the Revolution and the cost of it will exceed 400 or so. That's ridiculous. You can download all the Nintendo games onto an Xbox off the net for free. Contra, Bubble Bobble, Double Dragon, all that old school stuff... my brother in law has thousands of Nintendo games on his modded one.

I agree on the memory card stuff... it was such a hassle.

I can't stop staring at how the 360 looks... it's so pretty.

Dang sw, the 360 and the PS3?! You big baller you.

I can't NOT have both. At this point, it is an impossibility. With God of War 2 scheduled for PS3 and Halo 3 scheduled for 360, I gotta have them both. My wife will be pissed, but oh well. I think she would prefer I have them than her being divorced.

But the Xbox 360 does look bad ass, and the controller is a little smaller, and not only that, but all controllers will be wireless, for all the next gen systems. That is just off da chain.

Here are some pics of the PS3: http://media.ps3.ign.com/articles/61...19/imgs_1.html

Look at that controller. They both look sweet.

Whodi, I loved Grand Turisimo, but you have to play this game Forza. I think Playstation did get caught with their pants down on this one. It really is better than GT. Rent it and give it a try.


I heard God of War was awesome, I will rent it this weekend and check it out.

For Xbox you should try this game Chronicles of Riddick. The graphics were better than Halo- unreal.


And the nintendo Revolution has the capability of downloading EVERY Ninetendo game ever made.

Yeah but you have to pay to download the games. A buddy of mine is a big Nintendo fanboy and he thought he would be able to plug his N64 games into it. Then he found out it was download, the he showed me an article where you have to pay for the downloads.

I agree with Papz, I don't love Nintendo enough to buy anything of theirs, but get a good mod chip and get the games downloaded to your Xbox hard drive.

LMAO sw...

Man Halo is so hard to play on a controller... I rather play those types of games on the computer. I'm pretty good at Counter-Strike, COD... games of that nature. Maybe I just have given Halo a chance...

PS3 doesn't look too bad... but the 360 looks much better imo.

Don't even need a mod chip to mod an Xbox now... all need to do is buy another hard drive. I don't know exactly how to do it, but my friend does it. 45 for another hard drive... while the chip cost 60 dollars.
