    Hi everyone,

    I've had my PS2 for about a year now and should have my XBOX at the beginning of next week. I also just went and bought the Blockbuster $19.99 "all-you-can-rent-in-30-days" pass to check out some new games to see what I wanna buy next.

    My question is this: If I rent a PS2 version of a game (or vice versa), and like it, and later find a good deal on the XBOX version to buy, can I assume they are pretty much the same, or do I really have to go rent the other platform's version to make sure?

    I hope that makes sense.

    Thanks, Aaron

    It really comes down to what the individual developers do with the hardware, as Romier said.
    With it's higher horsepower (700mhz), a GeForce 3.5 [​IMG], full on the chip 5.1dd processing, and all the space that a harddrive can add, it SHOULD be a no brainer that the Xbox will have superior versions.
    But, in reality, it simply comes down to the amount of "love" a developer gives the port.
    The last ported game I bought was Blood Omen II. And, other than absolutely rock solid framerates, I didn't see much, if any, difference from my neighbors PS2 version.
