Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I am not a big fan of Unreal...MechAssult isn't all that great online as it gets boring after a while...imo at least
Halo 2 would define and grant all merits to XboX LIVE:)
what are your nicks?
...i was laggin' sick last night...lightening gun and lag don't mix!
Seems like there are more PS2 titles available, but are there other considerations that would suggest that Xbox is the better choice?
Just about everything is better except some people complain about the larger controllers XBOX uses (you can buy smaller if needed), and the game selection isn't up to the PS2 yet. As far as I'm concerned though, XBOX has an amazing amount of high quality games for being so new and I like the controllers.
Now in my view XBOX live is the PS2 killer. I can't speak to the PS2 version of online play, but from what I've heard it's pretty bad. They left the servers up to the individual game makers, which includes support, voice sucks, and they alllow 56k dial up connections which kills the gameplay with lag.
MS on the other hand, handles the whole deal which was the right way to go. They take care of all support, billing, etc, and they only allow cable or DSL connections so the gameplay is amazing. Voice is *perfect* too. Seriously, I've been playing with up to about 16 people at once with no lag at all. It is sickeningly addictive and fun.
Don't get me wrong though -- PS2 is good. I used to love it and you could probably argue convincingly for either system...until XBOX Live was released.
Fifa is very, very good.....
DrCool. Too right mate, this game is seroiusly affecting my social life.
I would go as far to say this is the best game i have ever played. EVER!
And thats coming from a bloke whos grown up with the Atari/48k/Amiga
If you don't have this game it now would make a very welcome stocking filler! or just go buy it today.
Party political broadcast for Vice City now over
My buddies and I co-own consoles...XboX (gettin' my own for Xmas:)), PS2 (have my own also), GameCube, DreamCast, N64, Super Nintendo, Nintendo, Genesis, etc.
As for PS2, GTA is the bread earner. But in March, Soul Calibur 2 is coming out. Sure, it will be on multi-platform, but the PS2 controler is closest it comes to DreamCast's...anyone who played as much Soul Calibur as me and my buddies would appreciate the similar button setting:)
As for GameCube, Metroid Prime...that game owns!...that game alone could justify the purchase of GameCube...anyone who hasn't seen/tried the game...go do your thang:)...it's worth it:)
As for XboX, the console owns me...Halo alone is an addiction of its own...but factor in XboX Live...and beloved Steel Battalion (Xmas wish list)...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh:)
There are good games for all consoles...but i have to say that if you haven't played Halo multiplayer...you don't understand why that game is such an addiction
For XboX LIVE...look for Phat Madness or Raw Biz...they are my buddies...they usually play Unreal...so yeah
