X-Box will die.

X-Box will die, simple, its better in almost all respects to PS2.

Unfortunately for them if you look at the game release dates on the Gamefaqs website you'll see that almost all the games consist of are PS2 rehashes released way later than PS2 games.

And the PS2 is easier to program for with movement models for several species used in games.

The X-Box also uses an Intel chip, and if they put any thought into it they would have either installed a cpu / graphics chip set that work in tandem (like the emotion engine for PS2 or the Gamecube equivilent) or at the least an AMD chip.

Its the games that count though and PS2 and Gamecube have got them. Gamecube with its familiy consious game releases and Sony with its more adult games.

Deals?, what deals, they have deals? For anything that hasn't been released on PS2 first?, Like what?

X-Box wont hit the massmarket for quite a while after PS2 and Gamecube do.

Noticed in my games mag that if Dreamcast was released after PS2 a lot of developers would have gone for that instead, they all expeced PS2 to be better so they waited for it.

dreamcast was doomed anyway... people were really angry with sega for its dropping of the saturn... they waited too long to make a new system and when they did, their fanbase had already moved on to bigger and better things like sony or the 64...

I don't really give a rat's ass...

But going at the system specs, a near tie, slightly in favour of the XBox. Gamecube inches behind. And the PS2 well, falls short.

XBox: A converted Celeron 733 system with an NVidia graphics chip. Basically, a computer without mouse and keyboard.

Gamecube: IBM RISC CPU, graphics I believe were by ATI. Cheaper to manufacture then the XBox. Best bang for the buck.

PS2: Inferior to the above 2, in graphics and CPU power.

Sega

I didn't get a Saturn because of the fact that they did exactly the same thing for the 32x (The Giant Mushroom). Which is another reason I'm not sure about X-Box, it has Sega games, I know its unfair but I can just see too many traits that suggest it's going to die a rather quick death.

System specifications don't mean alot.

Spectrum 'vs' Commodore.
Master System 'vs' NES(Famicon).
Mega Drive(Genesis) 'vs' SNES(Super Famicon).
Playstation 'vs' N64+Jaguar+Saturn+Dreamcast.

It seems to be the games and developers that count.

Simply put, those who wait will be those who reap the most out of this battle of the systems, since they will see what systems have the better games *at the moment NOT PS2, sadly*.

Those that have a crap load of money will get more than anyone who waits. All the consoles have at least a few good games coming to them.

Well yeah PS2 doesn't have the better games, it has the only games. (I'm speaking from England though).

To be honest I think I'll get a Gamecube as well.

If I'm wrong about X-Box, heck I'll get one too. I don't have crap loads of money, to be honest even here in England, where consoles/games are more expensive, they are still affordable, as long as you don't mind waiting a year + for prices to come down.

I think you mean Capcom vs. SNK 2. I never really got into the SNK games.

im not so sure about that... dont get me wrong, im never going to touch the thing on principle... ver, very strong principle... but having a harddrive is a plus... but then again, why does one need to buy a memory card if there is a buitl in hardrive on that thing?

im confused on that point... but i dont care, it will only matter to me if one of my friends wishes to risk a beating by purchasing one
