    *Yawn*

    You'll get a flame war asking this.

    Its simple. Find the sytem with the most games that you like, and get that one.

    FYI, if you go on the XBOX, MS is going to be shifting some stuff around, and EB is going to be selling their "Sega bundle" (system, s controller, JSRF & Sega GT2002) starting tomorrow.

    I found it funny when Sony dropped their PS2 to $199.....Microsoft had to follow that and drop the XBOX to $199...i bet they were pissed.

    MS should have known in advance cause it was a planeed drop. so not too suprising to them

    What sucked more was I found out a friend of mine had spent $300 on the XBOX, just 3 weeks earlier from the price drop, I told him if I knew you were going ot buy an XBOX, I would have told you to wait.

    Er, it was sort of the other way around (in a sense). Plans were leaked that MS was going to announce a price drop at this year's E3, so Sony decided to drop their price about three days before the event.

    Nintendo followd suit after both of them cut prices.

    GTA 3 does own. Love getting those hookers and taking them in to dark allies hehe or taking an old ladies car and then she comes after you and pulls you out and beats you up and leave hehe.

    well i meant sony sold a lot of PS2's at the price of $299 and the XBOX didn't have a chance.

    WTH?!?! I get sick of this Xbox is better crap. Just because its more powerful doesnt mean its better, look at the 2.4ghz wireless phones for examples. I guess all you xbox people dont like rpgs cause XBOX DOESNT HAVE ANY!

    Well in terms of playing for console games, I prefer the PS2. But if you want the best weight/cost ratio, I'd go with the XBOX since it's so big.
