You've obviously not seen the new Tomb Raider.

I am a PS2 nut. But heres my view. Even though I am a PS2 nut, that doesnt mean its the best system. Personaly I think X-box is the best system out right now. Its got those heavy hitters, such as HALO (and soon to come: HALO2) The gamecube is the 3rd best system right now. They keep making soft games, with cartoony graphics. Most people want a good shooter, or fighting game. The PS2 is 2nd. Its got good games. The Square is working for Sony. FF games are a huge hit, despite how many they have released. (Oh yeah, cant forget MGS1 and 2!) The problem with the PS2 is its not coming out with any GOOD origianal games. They keep coming out with sequals! The X-box is in 1st mostly because of HALO. HALO is a shockingly brilliant game. And with an upcoming HALO2, the other companies will have a hard time keeping up!

But overall, it comes down to this one conclusion. It doesnt matter if a system is the best or worst. You have your own personality, and you like what you like. Hell, if you like E.T. for Atari, thats your decision. It doesnt matter to you that oter people call it the worst game ever!

I'd say X Box but I used to think ps2 because once you get it chipped, install a hard drive and flash the chip you can get all the games, movies, emulators and roms you could ever want, as well as play online for free.

It's Rockstar who own the GTA franchise.

And if the Xbox players do get it, it's still ages after us PS2 players.

The people behind Rockstar are good businessmen.  GTA won't leave Sony's machines, because of the huge, largely mature user base.

yup,agree with cufflink.the Rockstar guys just wanna expand thier business and moreover it,it wouldn't effect us PS2 owners about the game because it's really quite a long time since the actual GTA:VC was released for the PS2,so while we're looking forward to the sequel to GTA:VC,X-Box owners are looking forward to the release of GTA:VC in the console. blink.gif

final say,don't sweat it dementedsniper.we're gonna have the final laugh!! devil.gif

Hi Engulf original.gif  Halo 2 is going to be all that and more. The thing I am looking forward to the most is the changes that are being made with the AI. You will have full interactivity with the environment, and I mean FULL interactivity.

Well said Mr. Salt! Upon reading each post, it really becomes more obvious that it is more of a personal preference type of thing. However, what I dont understand is why so much animosity toward X Box? its a great system, as with all the others listed, each system has something different about it that, personally, I find it impossible to choose one over the other...

Oh yeah! I cant wait!!!  grin2.gif

Hey Oracle, do you happen to know if there is going to be a 4 player co-op mode?

"Ballad of Serenity"
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I dont care, I'm still free
You cant take the sky from me...
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me
