But I still disagree in some of your sayings! Shame most people don't play rpgs! And... Yes you may call me an idiot if I buy an X-Box only for PDO, or a PS2 only for Shinobi, or an X-Box only for(most probably) a new Shining or Golden Sun game!

Argh, let me say something:
Even if there is one game that pushes you into buying a system, it is not going to be great the only game you're going to buy.
Both Xbox and PS2 atm have about the same number of great games ATM, actually. Bigger library+more developers=more trash, but still more opportunity for good games.
Also, PS2 has 2 "exclusive" Sega games coming out, as compared to the much larger amount on Xbox. "Exclusive" is getting pretty much meaningless nowadays, though, all it means most of the time is temp exclusive unless porting it would be basically impossible. This leads to my next point:
PDO will not be on PS2...ever. Sega doens't play that game (*ahem* raped Wreckless for PS2).

PS2 & Xbox have the same amount of great games*gets ready to go out and buy an Xbox*...then realizes thats crapThe Xboxs game libruary is sorely lacking *cough* Rpgs *cough* and the future looks terrible for the system as well...Most of the Sega games released for Xbox thus far, are games that dont typically sell in high figures (excluding the sports games) and certainly arent going to move much hardware. (dare i say, especially in japan) Likewise, as good as PDO is going to be, its not going to make people who never heard of the game, (or the series) buy the system for it.To compare the PS2 and Xbox is crap, Xbox simply doesnt stand a chance, in the face of the PS2s vastly superior selection of games...(M$ is pretty much getting prison raped by Sony) Also...(kind of off subject, oh well) is it just me or is the GC looking good this fall...manThe Nintendo of old is returning

cww80- Zero 9 never said that xbox has the same number of games as ps2. he said it has about the same number of great games. big difference. and i would agree with him. right now there is one game for each of the consoles that would push me to buy them (Halo on xbox, MGS2 on ps2), but as stated before, one game is not enough. and xbox might be lacking in rpgs, im not a big fan of em, so i dont really care. But you're right about nintendo. I think i might be getting a GC very soon *thinks of eternal darkness, SSB:M, Mario Sunshine, Metroid: Prime, PD:0, Zelda, Starfox Adventures*
i use a ps2 at my friends place and its just a ps1 on roids the graphics look oddly similar
i am sure there are a few rpg's out for the box aren't there?
and as for xbox and ps2 im gald a system like the xbox finaly came out ive always argued about system design with people and my point always was why the F dodnt they just slap a pc into a box and call it a game system - that would kill anything out there and would beable to do somuch more than your average game system limited by its proprieraty hardware
also theres pleanty of game developers already out there making games for the pc market which should add to the console game market
but im still waiting for microsoft to live up to its promises of many japanes developed games especialy rpgs common already were are they - microsoft signed those companies too late
also does ne1 think that the name microsoft hurts the xbox sales -- theve had so much negative publicity as a bully company
also does ne1 think the ps2 can be emulated on the xbox
