Exclamation Which is Best? XB, PS2, GC

Ok I'm going to buy either a PS2, XBox, Dreamcast, or GameCube but I was wondering if anyone knows what the differences are between them? Which one has more games or better games? What are the better games? What are the specs.? Also is there anything else coming out soon that I should wait for? Thanx a bunch!!

So far, it looks like PS2 has the best games in my opinion. But I'm going to get a Gamecube since the resident evil games are coming only for GC.

All three systems have their merits. I'd like to own them all, but financially that is impossible for me. It really depends on what you are looking for- is there a particular genre, series, or company that you really enjoy? Right now, the PS2 has a considerably larger library than the other two, so it's a safe choice, in my opinion, if you are really unsure. ^_^

You might also want to read these other threads which are somewhat related to your question:

I have a GC and Xbox. In my opinion ps2 only has "better" games because it came out a year before the others. Not that I don't want one...I do!

My advice would be to look at some gaming websites. See what games are out there and whats coming out later. The systems are pretty comparable otherwise.
Cool games for all systems:
PS2: .hack, Contra, GTA (although i still prefer the first one)...those Final...gah..can't remember the name.
xbox: panzaar dragoon, Fable (project ego), Jet Set Radio Future
GC: mario sunshine, animal crossing can be quite addicting, eternal darkness

But Soul Calibur 2 is coming out for all the platforms...and that's all that really matters

Statistically, the PS2 has better games, if you look at how well they are selling. Yes, the PS2 is still has lots of games that are selling better than X-box or GC games. Last I knew, the only X-box game that made it into the top three for one month was Halo.

i'd suggest a PS2 it has a lot of really good games and a lot of good games that are coming out. you can play all your old playstation games as well.

plus you can play dvd's without buying extra components

Well I don't want to hear any complaining when Fable comes out. I get enough of that from a friend. If it looks half as good when it comes out as it did last time I saw a preview... :takes a cold shower: I think most people hate the xbox because its not Japanese. Hey..I don't really like Microsoft either...but the system and its games rock.

And anyways...I hate FF....I only want a ps2 for .hack and Contra...mmm contra.

But again I will repeat: All the systems are the same except for games...go with what you like. Although at this rate...you'll only get like 2 years on your ps2 before the ps3 comes out.

Ooh! and kinda off topic...I heard that the GC is going to be the last console nintendo puts out...then they are going thirdparty like sega. Anyone hear about this?

I have 2 out of the three (Gamecube and PS2) and will soon have an X-box, but I definatly like the PS2 the best out of the three for the following reasons:

PS2 has the best set of fighters (Tekken 4, VF4)
PS2 has the best racing games (Twisted Metal Black, NFS, GT3)
PS2 has the best RPGs (FFX, Sukoden)
PS2 has the best action games (Devil May Cry, GTA)
PS2 has the best default controller (great for all kinds of games, and is definatly the best of the three for twitchy games like Tony Hawk)
PS2 can play PS1 games
PS2 can play DVDs (although X-box is better quality DVD player)
PS2 has the largest selection of games (because it's the oldest of the tree, and if you include all of the PS1 games...)
PS2 has yet to crap out on me (my Gamecube died on me a month after purchase, and a friend of classmate's X-box died on him also).

I have yet to be dissapointed with my PS2. I have about 10 games for it and not one below what it should for how much I paid for it. Persoanlly, I live in the now, and right now, there's less then shit for X-Box, whether is Japanese for Martian, there are *no* games, save for DoA3 that are even worth the money you pay for it, memory card or not. Whatever happens in 2 years happens in 2 years, right now the PS2 is dominating all and sitting here bitching about it really gets ya no where.
