I personally think PS2 is better, because:
SONY is a very well known and trusted manufacturer of quality home electronics. In America, more people own a ps1 than any other game console.
MICROSOFT is new at this console gaming thing, though I would say it is good for a first try (also considering the technology difference when the ps1 came out, with the technology used today for gaming consoles). The XBOX console is way too big for my liking too, along with thier controllers.
I guess NINTENDO lost me when the N64 came out when I prefered the playstation. I also don't really like the cartridge idea at all. The GAMECUBE is still a good console, but since the controllers keep changing with every NINTENDO console, I find it hard to keep up, when I play the N64 then for a while at my friends house, then he gets a GAMECUBE, it is so different.
Any other opinions or points???...
