i have a ps2. not only does it boast better games and a better controller than the other 2, i can also play all my old ps1 games on it. xbox is ok but it doesn't have enough good games on to make it worth buying. and i HATE the gamecube controller so that's a definite no-no.
I've owned all 3 major consoles that are out today, and I have to say the X-box seems the best, Note I said "Seems" not "IS" so no starting console wars PLEASE..
And to tell you the truth, although the gamecube has a good few top games, thats it, the rest on the shelf is garbage and is not to be looked at, and to be quite frank, its going the same way the N64 and Dreamcast did, just slightly slower..
As for the ps2, everything seems to be quantity not quality, most games on that console you can get on the others so there really isn't anything special about it.
And as for online capabilities, X-box online comes out on top.. so meh
I don't get the newest game conseles any more because, lets say you get Playstation. They come out with Playstation 2, which is just like the first, only they have better games and a DVD player. And now, they are coming out with Playstation 3. You see? They just keep making new ones, so you keep buying and buying until you've wasted all of your money and become a hobo. Dirty marketing of doom...
Fine Garbage since 2003.

-Working in television.
Fanboys annoy me. The only reason people are ever truly passionate about stuff like this is because they don't have the system the other guy does. Let's face it, there are good games on every console, and compared to 10 years ago, they are all amazing in terms of technical specs.
"overall quite powerfull (Vibrating etc..)"
Now we know why Jon loves his X-Box.
I won't buy that steaming piece of crap they call the Playstation 2 until they make the damned things last for more than a year. After looking at all my friends PS2's I figure they have about a 1 to 4 ratio of working to non working ps2's.
Although I had a friend who had his Gamecube literally burst into flames.
i like how the xbox comes equipped to play DVDs... but you have to pay £20 for a DVD remote. and how it comes with a broadband modem... but you have to pay for the xbox live starter pack. at least with the ps2 you get it ALL when you buy it. and online play is free.
