Asking on behalf of a friend who wants to buy her other half a console for his birthday. Given that I know nothing-naaaathiiiing about gaming or consoles apart from my 1980's Atari VCS, the question is simply: Which is better by today's standards? X-Box or PS2 (or any other for that matter). Criteria are number and quality of games AND use as a DVD player. Sorry if its a dumb question, but thanks in advance.
