Default What should I buy?

OK, I am so bored here recently and all I have is a PSOne. I haven't put anymore money into it because I very rarely play it. I wanna know from you guys, which game system I should buy. Give me the pros and cons of each system please, and I'll determine if I should spend money on a new system and games.


Game genres that I like to play are:

Sports: Football, Baseball, Hockey, Basketball.
Wrestling
Racing/Driving
Some First Person Shooters


Pleae inform me which system is best suited to these categories, and of the categories, which games are best, ie Madden or Fever, EA or 989, etc.


Oh yeah, I don't want GameCube, so it's a choice between PS2 and X Box.



Thanks for any replies in helping me make this all important decision.

Get a PS2. It has the largest selection in games. And I know since you don't have a DVD player, you can use that as a DVD player, and you won't need to buy a remote to use DVDs like you do with the Xbox. I know you probably won't but the network adaptor for the PS2, but if you happen to do, playing online is free...well for most games. Xbox doesn't even have any EA games online.

If you like the controls of your PSOne, you'll automatically have an advantage playing PS2 rather than X-Box.

A PS2 can play DVDs, Burnt DVDs, PS2 Games, CDs, and PSOne games.

As for your game choices, theres a shitload to choose from. Ones you'd be interested in would be Madden 2004, NBA 2004, NHL 2004 (not sure about Baseball though), GTA 3, Vice City, Smackdown Here Comes The Pain etc.

I've never heard of Fever or 989 but EA and Madden are leaders in their gaming fields though.

PS2 is the way to go.

989 is garbage. Don't even bother wasting your money on those games.

Pros that I got from the girl at Toys R Us for Xbox were:

X Box - Better graphics, hard drive (no memory card), comes with 2 games (I think)

She didn't really say anything about PS2 that was better, and also included that she would buy an XBox if she had the money.

EA is the greatest sports game producer ever IMO, NBA Live 2004 kicks ass.

But Stick, considering you havent played SD SYM you won't consider HCTP a huge dissapointment like the rest of us, but don't worry, you will soon enough.

It is also a must that you buy GTA 3 and Vice City.

well she's on crack. PS2 has the biggest selection of games out of all the big 3 consoles (PS2, XBOX and GC). XBox graphics are good, yes, but its not like PS2s are shitty. And those 2 games that come with the XBOX are most probably shit. I prefer having a memory card so when I go to my cousins I can use my created guys on HCTP.

Better graphics? I don't know about that. Maybe some games. But its not like you can really tell. And plus your asking someone from Toys R Us. Those people don't know anything. I'm telling you, go with a PS2.

Lets not forget how chunky XBoxes are, it'll be hard to fit it anywhere. PS2s can stand on their side, so you can put it horizontally or vertically. Keep that in mind.

Go with the PS2, it's by far the best system out there.

All of the goods have already been mentioned pretty much…

DVD player,
Good controller,
Good graphics,
Combatable with PSOne games,
Huge selection of games,
The console doesn't look gay either.

The ps2 is by far the most versitile and for most gamers, it's the center of their setup. An xbox or cube is pretty much an add on or extension.

And even though I'd recommend the ps2 if you're only going to have one console, give the cube some consideration. It's a lot cheaper which means you can get more games off the bat with it. It has madden which is the only football game you will ever need. You can play Metroid prime which is the best FPS to come out in years. Zelda is imo the best game last year. And you can prolly pick up like 4 used games and a system for under 200 bucks which lets you get going right away, so don't be so quick to dismiss it.

Hmmm, I still haven't decided.


For playing games online for either, do you have to have an existing high speed connection...?
