I think I am leaning towards Nintendo's Gamecube
I really like Gran Turismo 3 and I wanna play other games such as Spy Hunter, Devil May Cry and so on... but oh well...... I'll have Super Smash Brothers : Melee along other titles to make-up for that..... Gooooddddd I just HOPE I get Marvel Vs. Capcom 1 or 2 I WANT IT!!!!

ps2 all the way. i wasn't extremely impressed with the game cube. the graphics are pretty good, but their games didn't really look all that great. ps2 has so many great games and it seems like they're going to keep pumping them out.

PS2. Nintendo is a little too family oriented for me. X-Box is more powerful, but they aren't going to have the third-party backing that PS2 and GameCube will have. With titles like Blood Omen 2, Devil May Cry, MGS 2 going to PS2, thats where I'll be spending my money. One thing I heard that makes me wanna get GameCube eventually is that Resident Evil is going to be leaving PlayStation and GameCube will have exclusive rights to 6 new Resident Evil games. These are a next generation remake of the original; Resident Evil 0, a prequel to the series; ports of RE2, RE3:Nemesis, and RE Code:Veronica; and then a true continuation of the series with RE4. I got that news right out of Playstation Magazine. But PS2 will have Onimusha 2, Alone In The Dark 4, The Lost, and sequels to Silent Hill. PS2 will just have more and better selections of games than the other 2 consoles put together.

i voted for the x-box, microsoft has an edge over all of them, playstation 2, is a good console but hard to develop games for, and im pretty tired of nintendos cartoonish looking games, have any of you held the controller? damn it feels great, its similar to the the dreamcast, but alot bigger,, i love it.......

I tried sleeping with my genesis, but it just couldn't get drunk enough.

Anyway, they all suck because they are all incapable of being emulated. Emulation rules above all else.

I don't know why the Dreamcast fell? I mean the graphics were really good, almost close to the Playstation 2. I never bought one because I had a feeling this would have happened. Now that Dreamcasts are cheap, I think I will buy one because it does have some great games.

as for Nintendo 64, it was all the damn catridges fault. Nintendo has since learn from this mistake and the next gen wars will different!!!! Also look at the last year or so of the Nintendo 64...It had Perfect Dark and Conkers Bad Fur Day...Which just shows how Nintendo knows that they should reach that older audience. Yes it is true it had cartoonish graphics, but a great game is not made by its graphics alone, gameplay plays an important role!!!!
Also Nintendo's thing is Quality over Quantity....and even with its immature graphics, I wanna play Super Smash Bros:Melee on the Gamecube........

It is hard for developers to make games for PS2, but it still has some great 3rd party games. The PS2 with a year ahead of the competition has a Huge selection of games some of which I wish I could play.

my friend said she saw silent hill on japanese import for the gameboy advance, so i guess maybe the sequals will be on the gamecube too?

As sega have an exlusive deal with nintendo for games I think the gamecube will probably be my fave.

I keep thinking I should buy a cheap dreamcast, but it's only for samba de amigo and you can't get the maracas anywhere so there's no real point, but I really really want that game

My next game target to play is Resident Evil 4. I've seen it's out and can't wait. I've already clocked 1,2 and 3. So it should be alright.

AND FUN!

Quoted from the Gamepro newsite


GameCube Displaces Hardware Launch Record 29-NOV-01
According to number-wranglers over at Nintendo, the GameCube has replaced the PS2 as the fastest-selling new console ever. In its first week on shelves, the Cube sold more than a half million systems, moving twice as fast as Xbox sales (according to Nintendo, anywayMicrosoft still hasnt released any official tally), and at least 25 percent faster than the PS2 during its launch last year. Additionally, Luigi's Mansion has taken the title of most-bought console launch game ever, with sales outstripping Super Mario 64 during the 1996 N64 launch.


All I can say is I'm very happy and Wohoooooo!!!!

Yes I am more bias with Nintendo.......but Honestly I think Sony PS2 will win for awhile at first if not then the "console war" will be something very intresting to see.
