Gamecube: My sisters bought a gamecube, and this concole in mainly for family and to play with a group of friends games like mario party or mario kart which are very funny.... but most of the games are orioented to kids... so if u are searching for action or good games.. ull have a tough time fingding it. The pros is that this console can use 4 controls and is very funny to play game slike fifa,mario kart and those things...
PS2: IMO this is the best console in the market.. not for his performance, because gamecube and mainly xbox are betters than the s2 , but PS2 have the fame that the other 2 dont have, so if a famous game will be launched, it will surely first be out on PS2.... so if u want to play any kind of games in the market, action, rpgs, and some online games... buy PS2.
Xbox: I dony know much about xbox... but in theory is the stronger console of all..... but its weak point is that they dont have good games... in fact, they dont have too many famous games. Even gamecube with their mario games is funnier than xbox.-
Xbox has the power and performance, but PS2 has a much higher quality of games.
Also, keep in mind that PS2 will be coming out with its own 60GB hard drive next month. It will retail for 99.99, but it will aslo include Final Fantasy Online already pre-installed. I've played the PC demo version of it, and its incredible.
Plus, these days, its pretty hard to tell the difference between a PS2 game and an XBOX game in terms of graphics. Sony is developing new middleware all the time that they are sourcing out to their developers.
Gee, I sound like someone who used to work in a videogame store part-time. Oh wait, that's because I did.
