It's true, PS2s are the most expensive consoles yet their not the best console. The XBOX is a far more superior console to the PS2. Why? Simple. It's the most powerful games console, it has 4 controller ports so you don't need to waste soooooo much money on a mulit-tap, it has better online games and online capability and it also has the best graphics. Simple. What does the PS2 have? Ooooooooh wow! The ability to play DVDs without a remote. And? For the price of a PS2 and a couple of games you can get an XBOX or Gamecube AND a DVD player! Try and argue with THAT, PS2 ,lovers!
