    dts_boy, this subject has been covered many times in these forums and there will be many opinions (none right/wrong) on which console is the better buy.

    If the machine is to be used as a DVD player as well as a games console, then the choice is cut down to the PS2 & XBOX immediately, with the latter having the better DVD player.

    XBOX & Gamecube has 4 player capability as standard, PS2 will need additional hardware.

    The games side sees the PS2 with a large catalogue of games, although the XBOX & Gamecube are releasing plenty to keep their console owners busy.

    Hard to say that there is a winner here, but for me I would personally recommend the XBOX.

    Do a search on either of the systems. All the intelligent, and non-intelligent arguments for all 3 systems have already been made.

    If nothing else, it makes for some interesting reading. :)
