First off, I'll admit to liking the xbox more then the other consoles. But I am also one of the rare people you'll see who aren't biased. Whic
I'll tell you right now, was a major reason I was kicked off the site I used to do reviews for.
I still think MS has an uphill battle. Sony has two incredible strengths that MS still has yet to beat them on, and that's their strong relationship
with the japanese game developers who make most of these games, and their supportive nature with them. Simply put: Sony knows who butters their bread.
It's Konami...it's Capcom, it's Square...so they make sure to treat those folks well or suffer the consequences.
I'll be honest, if you put a gun to my head and asked me to pick a system (Xbox or PS2) that I had to "give up" and give away all my games for,
never to play again, I'd give up the Xbox. Their are just too many PS2 games that I love, and play daily, that I'd lose. Shadow Hearts 2, Star Ocean
3, Digital Devil Saga, SMT:Nocture, MGS3...just to name a few. While Halo 1 I also have for my PC and I could buy both KOTOR games for my PC as well.
I'd lose Halo 2 and Xbox live, but that's about all I'd cry over.
I think this upcoming console war should be very interesting. MS knows what they have to do (Court the japanese), and Sony knows what they have to do
(Better internet plan) so we'll see who does their task better. My money is still on Sony though, since their task is a heckuva lot easier then
