    Afternoon all!

    First off - great forum! Always a good read during a dull day at work. :D

    I was wondering if the online experience with PS2 is any good?
    I see a lot of threads here talking about the Xbox Live, but nothing about the PS2.

    Is it because it's pants? Or just that the vast majority on here have the Xbox?

    Or maybe because I'm getting on a bit and the Xbox is the newer machine? :)

    I look forward to any opinions you can share.

    PS2 online for me was poor, voice comms were not to clear and not that many 'rooms' to play in (at the time). But i didn't really give it much of a chance as i was already hooked by xbox live, which can only be described as awesome. That said i do have a m8 who loves playing SOCOM and NFS on his ps2 online and says he has no problems with it.

    I think the reason that the majority of us here favour 'live' is that the overall online experience is better thanks to the age group of the people that play on live, for example in the 16months that i've had live only twice have i come accross some really really annoying 12 year old, screaming and moaning down the mic every second of the game (but is a bit more common now with Halo2(american :censored: )) whereas the people on PS2 online are usually younger(no credit card required iirc) or more 'casual gamers'

    I had one such ingrate last night who thought that farting down his microphone would be an amusing thing to do....

    .... Well it would have been....

    ....if I'd thought of it first ! :D
