Hope ya'll can help out. Age old questiong...which console to get. I am truly, 100% split between the PS2 and the X-Box. Let me first tell you my setup. The system will be hooked up to a XGA front projection system via DScaler on an HTPC. Hopefully, this will reduce some of PS2's jaggies problems. Also, the HTPC will be my main gaming machine and DVD player. I just want the console for the few games that don't come to the PC and as a back-up machine. Here's how I break it down: Hardware - the XBox hands down. But then it's not even close to as powerful as my HTPC with an nForce mb. Software - I play Sports games, driving games, RTS games, and the occasional first person shooter. IMO, all of these genres are much better on the PC, with the exception of 2 games I badly want...NBA 2K2 and Gran Turismo. Halo looks interesting, but I can just play Unreal Tournament 2 on the PC (when it comes out) and be even happier. Don't let me understate the importance of GT3 for me. I have logged well over 10,000 hours playing and replaying GT1, GT2, and bleemcast GT2! But should I get an entire system with inferior hardware just for one game? Please tell me what other pros and cons (aside from the FAQ) to consider. Thanks for your time.
