Re: PS2 V XBOX
This kills me, because it's such a pointless argument.
I have both consoles; they each have their merits.
Overall, I prefer the Xbox for the superior graphics and sound; for the internal hard drive; for the better controllers; for the ease of Live-enabled games. The only thing you can say for sure (without bias) is that the Xbox is a better platform, with better capabilities and a smarter design.
The PS2's only real redeeming quality comes in the form of the software available for it. I love GTA3, and I'm looking forward to the next release (now delayed until summer). There are some other games available for PS2 that aren't on the other console, but that's why I have both. And as was already pointed out, there are games on Xbox (Halo, Project Gotham, Topspin, etc...) that are awesome, and not available on PS2.
BTW - I'm sure you're aware Grand Theft Auto is available for both consoles.
