Having had a PS2 and now enjoying the delights of the Xbox i think it has to go to the Xbox. Unfortunately if money (and time) permitted then i would go for both as there are some great games than are only available for either comsole. hope that this helps a little????

So..any XBox live owners here get the StreetFighter 2 15th Anniversary game ? It comes with SF3 3rd strike which is great to play online so if anyone wants a match give me a shout and we'll arrange a game.

I have an Xbox, and agree with everyone else, smaller games library, but better graphics and sound. It is basically a small PC, which is why I prefer it to the PS2. If you have broadband you only need a Live account and a headset and you can play online ... the online play is a lot better formatted than the PS2 equivalent.

The games library never bothered me. All the games that I want to play are out for the Xbox too, it's not like I want a games library at home of 100's of games!

My understanding of the drive issues is that was only in early generations ... I've had mine for 18 months + (since I moved to the States, actually) and it's running fine.

I would definitely recommend the Xbox!

I would recommend neither and to wait until the "next gen" XBox 2 or PS3 comes out as some other people have said. Because when they do, you might as well put your existing console in the bin. Its the way of technology.

I personally don't have any console, I think PC is the best thing - more in depth games and and you can be upgrading as needs be, instead of having to get a whole new thing!

I have never seen a massive difference in the amount of games available for the x-box. I'm not going to buy x-box 2 until it halves in price...probably a year later.

Funny you should just ask that, i've just this minute installed the D-link DGL 3420 receiver. I had the D-link 624 Wi fi router for a few months now and decided it was time to do away with the cable running fdrom one end of the room to the other. Once connected the XBox found the unit and it worked on first try. I'm quite impressed but have yet to actually play it online....
