Re: gamecube or playstation 2...
Exactly. There is no way the PS3 will arrive before Xmas, and if it does, it will be extremely rushed. And thats not what we want. Sony are yet to fully release the PSP globally yet! Yet alone the PS3. Europe are still to get the release of the PSP remember.
As for the thing between GC vs PS2. I say PS2 all the way. Dont get me wrong I love the Gamecube, but the games just arent good enough. I love the pad, and love the prices of them too. But the PS2 is just far better in terms of graphics, games, looks, practicality. Its a DVD player as well, so that always comes in handy.
Just think of it this way. With the PS2 you are getting MGS3, GT4, DMC3 and the rest of the bunch. Far better games recently than any console.
Thinking of getting a PS3 yet is just pointless, because its so far off. Buying one of the current consoles (XBOX, PS2, GC) will last you until XMAS and New Year at least. Because new consoles wont be out until then properly.
