A powerful gaming console that was the only basis for which developers could untilize their dreams with games like Unreal, Halo, Ninja Gaiden, and Barbie Horse Adventures. Although it flopped in Japan due to it's incredulous size (even I had to wonder, what the hell was up with the controllers?) it revolutionized gaming history with it's incredible online system, it boasts powr the Playstaion 2 can only dream of, and for obvious reason, it came out afterwards. People who say the Xbox is inferior to PS2 are people who are too blind to realize great things.
If you like FPS's and sport's games and like better graphics, get an Xbox.
If you love RPG's and adventure games more then the patter, then a PS2 is for you.
If you love modern classics, new and old, then a GameCube is just your choice.
