I wanna know what people would choose out of a PS2 and a Game Cube..
I know the PS2 has some better games and is a better console over all but the cube has some fun games and crazy stuff like mario party, donkey konga and just seems more fun.
However I like the RPG style games and as of yet there are no A+++ games for xbox (which I already own) so I want to get a PS2 for that reason. And I like Tekken.... But I like the Zelda and smash bros. games too... so please state which you like better and all the good reasons you can think of.
Oh and I don't want a reason like you like PS2 better because the cube is a heap-a. or the other way round. Only good points, no bad ones.

Gamecube 100%. But if you get a Gamecube get a Freeloader or an Action Replay from DVD Crave so you can play NTSC games. This is a MUST. As is typical with Nintendo a lot of their better games are not converted to PAL so are never sold here. Again you can buy them from www.dvdcrave.com.au

i'm for gc, probably since i've always followed nintendo.

but gc is good, one of the most comfortable and easy to use cotrollers to date. some of the games may seem childish and many are but their are so many good ones to counter balance that staement.

like the new zelda soon to come out (and the cool cel-shaded WW) smash bros. is great and i've become rather fond of tales of symphonia a great rpg.

but in the end it's up to u, see what games are out and are coming out on each console and see which has more u want. but since u can get a gc for like $100.00 now, and a ps2 for like $250.00 get both.

Definently the Gamecube! The games are better designed and more fun, the controllers are the best controllers that anyone has designed yet, and best of all, it's a GAMES machine, not a DVD player!!!

I have one and it has never really crossed my mind to get a PS2 or an XBox (well, I did think about getting a PS2 so I could play the .hack games, but in the end I decided it wasn't really worth it.)

I agree with Dizrythmia, the best games for the Gamecube usually don't get released on PAL (sometimes they do, but not in Australia) unless they are the latest of the Nintendo character games (such as Mario, Zelda or Donkey Kong).

I'd say save your money till next year and buy a PS3, which will be backward compatible with PS2 games.

I'd have to say PS2 though. Best console without a doubt if you are an RPG fan aswell (although PC still holds the best RPGs. Baldurs Gate 2 is still my all time favourite game Smile ). Just the general variety it provides. It caters for all genres rather adequately.

Do the intelligent thing and sell your X-box and games to buy both a PS2 and GC, they are all you'll need.

OR

You could buy a PS2 and wait for Nintendo's next gen system which will be backwards compatible.

OR

you could buy a GC and wait for Sonys next gen system which will be backwards compatible

OR

You could wait for both next gen systems and buy them when thay come out.

why isn't getting neither a bad point?

imo consoles lately haven't really impressed me that much lately.....theres gotta be something more worthy to do with your money, then choose two consoles?.....

Don't worry....you'll come around soon Razz.....when you had wished you'd save your money for a car....(never too early to start saving)....

Wow so it seems like only Xbox 2 won't be backwards compatible. It seems pretty illogical to me why they would do something like that. I mean if they want to draw people into buying an Xbox 2 that usually buy Sony or Nintendo I would have thought that they'd have a better chance making all Xbox's original games able to be played on Xbox2. For example if you can only play Halo3 and not Halo 2 or 1 aren't you missing out on a big chunk of the story? It just seems like a bad idea from Microsoft.

I think they are not making it backwards compatible because the X-box 2 wont have a hard drive like the X-box.
I agree it is a bad idea not to have backwards compatibility, it really hurt Nintendo this gen - that and a number of other reasons (not enough third party support, the kiddy image, no DVD player etc.)

[rant]
I don't know why people keep insisting that the Xbox 2 -won't- have backwards compatability. It's all been wrung up from rumours. There are very few solid details as yet on the Xbox 2. Though I believe this month's OAXM (which I have yet to buy, bleh) has some news. About the only thing to lend credence to non-backwards compatability is that they are changing the graphics chip vendors. Which, with an emulation program installed within the Xbox 2 OS, wouldn't be much of a problem. [/rant]

It's mostly because it will be near-impossible to do it effectively. The XBox 360 has a completely different processing architecture (PowerPC) to the XBox (IA32).

The PS2 could do backwards compatibility because it uses an R3000 for its I/O chip. R3000s are far easier to embed than the XBox's Celery CPU would be. Not only that, but the PS2's main CPU is an R6000 (I think...), which is an upscaled R3000 anyway.

The Revolution will use a PowerPC CPU, meaning that it will be easy to run Gamecube software on it, as the Gamecube also uses a PowerPC chip.

I've not heard anything on the PS3 in this matter. Given that it's moving to a different architecture (Cell, which is PowerPC-based), Sony are going to have to put in significant engineering effort to get the emulation for the PS2 and PS1 (assuming they even bother going back that far) working in the PS3.

Backwards compatibility in consoles is great, but only when the engineering cost of doing it doesn't affect the console you want to produce. There is, after all, a reason the Nintendo DS is only compatible with GBA games.

True, you wont be able to find some really good games in Austrlia because so few copies have been released. Resident Evil 4 was just released and yet barely anybody here cares about what is possibly the best game this gen (below MGS3 of course). Its sad really, people are definitely missing out.

So yeah the MOST intelligent thing to do is to wait for the Revolution (buy a PS2) which could possibly (doubtfully) re-invigorate the Australian populations waning interest in Nintendo.

I'm more inclined to say Resident Evil 4 is probably the best game of this generation.

They are both good. (I have both, no Xbox though)

Gamecube has funner games; Zelda, Mario, Mario Party, Metroid Prime

But Playstation has the more serious games and seems to be more readily accessible. I can't seem to find many GC games on the shelf anymore!

Use your PC for RPG's it's a lot easier. Use a console for 'actiony' games.

But i've always been a bit of a nintendo fanboy Embarassed

I don't think we should judge the nextgen consoles until they officially display them at E3 (well, the MS and Sony, anyway- Nintendo are skipping). Things can certainly change between announcement time and when it hits the shelves... Until we see them in the flesh, lets not assume what they've said so far is gospel Razz

As for the consoles, PS2 is good for action, shooting, rpg, sports, driving... GC is good for fun/party games, and nintendo games (since they're really a genre on their own Wink ).

I bought a cube for the sole purpose of playing smash bros mellee. Then I realised that Nintendo Australia actully hate their customers and decide to not rellease any games, EVER. Hell I'm suprised that we even got Resident Evil 4....

I will probbably by a PS2 for Soul Calibur 3. Sorry but any game with Custom charecters rocks. Even more so if its Soul Calibur

I read also that the Graphic Chip for the Xbox 2 is being done by ATI, as opposed to the Xbox, which was done by NVIDIA, so naturally they don't particularly want to allow ATI access to how they made their chip.
I don't understand alot of that, so correct me if I'm wrong.

RE4 is coming to the PS2. It is not reason alone to buy a Gamecube.

They might do that, although software emulation is something they'd be trying to avoid. If they embed an RS6000/Emotion Engine core onto their I/O chip, maybe it'll work. On the other hand, they may still need some way of emulating the GS.

Software emulation is going to be less compatible than a hardware implementation, no matter how well they do it. Then again, even the PS2's PS1 emulation is incomplete (a small number of PS1 games don't work in the PS2).

You... didn't understand any of it. That's okay... Smile

The graphics chip is not the CPU. It is, in a games console, probably more important than the CPU, but it is not the CPU. Microsoft did a very odd thing with the XBox, in that they intentionally prevented developers from being able to directly talk to the graphics chip. Instead, you have to use Microsoft's API libraries, effectively making them a "virtual" graphics chip.

What this approach means is that MS could change the graphics chip in the XBox, and not lose compatibility with current games.

Note, however, that this doesn't mean they could do the same with the CPU and get backwards compatibility in the XBox 360. The CPU is far more fundamentally attached to the way programs run than the graphics chip is.

ATI is building the graphics chip for all three next-generation consoles* and IBM is developing the CPU for all three next generation consoles.

*: I may be wrong... I can't seem to recall if they announced they were doing the PS3 graphics or not.

I wasnt saying that, i was just stating that barely anyone in Australia has taken notice of this game because it's on a system that hasnt garnered much attention from the Australian poulation other than from the hardcore Nintendo fanbase. And when it does come to PS2 its bound to sell very well, yet all the people who buy it will have no idea there is a GC version which was released almost a year prior.

There's no way the PS2 version will come anywhere near the Gamecube version graphically. Same applies with RE0 which is going to the PS2 too. The visuals is part of what makes RE4 great, and the GC's system is really the only system that can handle it. But that remains to be seen. But from past ports, it won't look nearly as good.

Visuals are a big thing in this game, so that's why it matters.

Hey, no i totally agree with you its just that because the GC didn't have a DVD player and the X-box and PS2 do, alot of people were turned off, i'm sure if they didn't have DVD players nobody would care and obviously wouldnt ask "Why dont they have a built in DVD player?"

3. Wider range of games

Yeah, with only a small few that are any good


As opposed to the miniscule amount of good games that get released for the GameCube here.

GameCube. If you want brilliant, masterpieces games, and don't mind going with quailty over quantity, go with a GC, if you wanna look cool in front of your friends, go ps2...

If u really want to buy a console id suggest both i mean u can pick up a game cube for less than a new game itl always be a handy thing to have around when cool games get released and the ps2 is ur DVD and an awesome gaming machine if ur a racer GT4 an rpger all of the final fantasy series *backwards compatibility* some of the platform games are pure entertainment.

or like previously mentioned get the PsP i mean portable dvd/games/net how can u loose?

A while ago, a friend of mine came across a couple of the "cool, sarcastic, rugby playing kids" from our high school at a pub, one of them in particular I recall accusing me of being antisocial for playing videogames.

They gave my friend the name of their Halo clan. Laughing

I have a Dreamcast, that's good enough for me. All the good games were ported from it, but they were born on the Dreamcast. *hugs Shenmue 1 & 2*. People tell me the DC sucked cause it didn't do well, ignorant ****!

I'd stick with the Gamecube though, because Nintendo rarelly ever make bad games, some duds here and there, but GCN has Tales of Symphonia which is now high up on my list of favourites. Beats Final Fantasy X anyway.

They make PS2's that read discs now? I knew I was ripped off.

I wonder if HimuraBattousai has ever heard of the ability to Import Games.

By obtaining the knowledge that the PSP uses a proprietary DVD format that is incompatible with anything other than a PSP?

Sure I have. I just think you shouldn't need to.

Well that's the way the world works and therefore why most Publishers suck.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to observe that the way the world works leaves a hell of a lot to be desired.

I actually made this decision a couple of months ago and I chose Gamecube.

It's a better console and everything's quite cheap for it now that it's failed in Australia. Better games too. It pretty much has the same number of games once you eliminate all the crap ones on the PS2.

Also, I now have all the Resident Evil games on one console. Very Happy

Alot of people suggest the GC but I thihnk I'm still leaning towards a PS2... Because of games that I'd play the whole way through, like .hack// and start ocean and the FF games.
A few are saying "buy both, the GC is only a cost of a new PS2 game anyway." But if I do that I will be stuck with 2 consoles and NO GAMES for like a month!!
Ok now I see the reasons for the consoles being better and stuff but I'd like people to list their top 5 games of their choice of console.
