I know this is a nintendo site but I love my ps2 dearly. And this ps2 article got me so pumped that i'm going to have to save up A LOT atleast 500 for all the games i want here. HDD, MGS3, GT4, GTA:5, etc. Its insane. Network ADapter is a success soposedly so i can play my ps2 online with much more people.

Don't spam, I dont want any nintendo fanboys here saying "Tehps2 suxors!!!"

PS3 will probably be the worst system in 2004 lol. Im far more interested in My Xbox and my gamecube to even look at my PS2..

The PS2 sucks, but many developers have put some kick ass games on it and looks like 2004 will continue that.

2004 won't be the year of PS2, sorry but I could find better things to spend 500 bucks on than games.

Only thing that makes me keep my PS2:
Online EA games, NFL Street and Madden '04. (Fuck you EA)
Ratchet & Clank
Otherwise I would probably never play it..only would probably use for a DVD player. But, I could get a decent one for around $50 now.

ok, the most anticipated games for xbox and ps2 are over 10 pgs each. The gamecubes is 4... 4 freakin pages.

Star Wars: Battlefront
Publisher: LucasArts
Developer: Pandemic
Release Date: Fall 2004
Why it will rock: It's a team-based shooter where you have to fight to capture control points on a planet before moving on to another planet to do the same thing and conquer the galaxy. Because of this and the Episodes I-VI elements, Star Wars: Battlefront might follow in the footsteps of Knights of the Old Republic as the next game to have more Star Wars juice than any SW movie from the last five years. This is a multiplatform release including the PS2 and PC, but the Xbox version will of course be able to take advantage of Xbox Live functionality and reliability so that the massive 32 player battles across the Star Wars universe will feel like Battlefield: A Long Long Time Ago. Imperials, Rebels, Old Republic and Trade Federation forces will all be mixed up in there with usable vehicles like TIE Fighters, AT-STs and speederbikes. Pandemic Studios could be the ones to deliver us all from the dark side of EA's ownership of Battlefield 1942.

That sounds so awesome.

Kid, your a dumbass, it would suck ass on the cube, no downloadable content, and I honestly don't think that it could handle it. I would hate to see it be ported to the Xbox, mainly because its the Xbox. But I can guarentee it wont happen since its published by SCEA.

gran turismo has been with the playstation since it started (derr), and its not going to move. to say it would be better on the xbox is a lie. the ps2 controller dominates fighting games, racing games, series like thps, and is the only good system to play the ssx trilogy on.

you guys cant keep these opinions biast towards anything but the playstation. the original playstation blew everything away, sony just seems to be slacking off a bit with their new piece of metal.

though, i cant believe tenchu is now an xbox exclusive .that hurts.

First of all, if PS2 can handle it, Gamecube can do it better. Second, you're probably not getting any dloadable content with a PS2-exclusive GTA anyway.

LOL :evillaugh :evillaugh it's probably the worst controller for racing games

and even though it would never come to Xbox since Sony is the publsher, Gran Turismo 4 would be much better on Xbox. It would have better graphics, a better controller for racing games, custom soundtracks, and Xbox Live (rankings, voice chat, downloadable content, more players per game instead of the 1-6 in GT4) etc.

If you're hardcore into racers the system's controllers don't matter at all. Why? Because you'd own a racing wheel.

but every system needs its few exclusives to keep the junkies going. ehh, to you its the worst. i dont like using racing games with the xbox controller, they dont love me.

Voice chat is used in SOCOM and what else? Online games that involve a whopping two different people? The fact that not every game has it is quite disappointing.

Scoreboards? Damn, the PS2 online network is equal to Xbox Live.

Playable Mp3s? WOAHHHHHHH!!!1! When you can use them in-game as custom soundtracks, let me know.

yeah, so the xbox may have a better online support than the ps2. and the ps2 may just have seemed to all around suck since the massive onslaught of shitty games started back in '99.

but its no reason to flame the system. it is directly related to the original playstation, which was a masterpiece of technology. eh.

Yeah, every new online game for ps2 has the voice chat, the older once didn't for some reason. But most new ones have voice chat enabled.

Anyway the mp3's thing? the HDD isn't out yet it'll come out around when GT3 dose so I don't mind.

The point is more people bought the ps2. More people that have PS2 have the network adapter as do xbox owners with LIVE. :D

Care to give us some reasons? Cause from where I sit, it might not be the most powerful, but (Aside from Nintendo) has the best companies behind it, like Square-Enix, Rockstar, and EA's online support, as well as many othegames that are going to be online, and that already are online.

PS2 is going to continue it's ownage of this generation. Good luck next year!
