Hi. Wanted to get the latest information and advice without doing hours of research, Sorry for being lazy. Going to be be buying a Gamecube or PS2 for my soon to be 12 year old. He doesn't want an XBOX. He's not worried about the DVD player. He's always been a Mario fan, and likes a lot of the gamecube games, but recognizes that PS2 has so many more games available. We'll probably be getting a big screen 16x9 HDTV in the next year or so, and he and I both like good video in games. Seems like more of the Gamecube games have 480p capability then the PS2. We both are into good sound, but our receiver does not have DPL2. Any advice?
