I might pick up the game for xbox, it has a more powerfull processor and gpu so it can handle more onscreen at the same time
 
from what ive heard you still need an xbox live account to play PSO offline even. the box says live is REQUIRED. i think thats kind of busted myself. ive also heard that americans cant play with the japanese. take this all with a grain of salt tho since i dont have an xbox myself.

Eh... couple things.

First off, Xbox does NOT have a more powerful processor than GameCube. Period. Don't even argue with me on this one. The only way Xbox's P3/Celeron hybrid beats Gekko is if you have flawlessly optimised SSE code everywhere which is a logical impossibility.

Second... I actually haven't played PSOe1&2 GC in 4-player split yet. But I have played 3-player and the frame rate stays at 60 in all but the most horrifyingly stressful scenes. Hmm. Oh well.

that only happens in the forest for some reason.
 
I've been playing PSO (GC) 4player offline 24/7...

I only experience some slow-downs when everyone walks in one group and stares at each-other (while there are enemies around)

+in episode 2, the only place I experience slow-downs is when we're doing what mentioned above in the "Jungle area"

in Episode 1, there's some slow-downs in forest, cave, mine and ruin

But nothing we can't handle...

If the game slows down a lot, just split the group!

(run to different locations, don't be so depending on eachother)
