    They are both good systems. They both have almost the same games. They both have the same graphics but if your a nerd and look at every detail then xbox has better graphics.

    I think that Xbox is better cux you can use a program to play audio,movies,pictures.Called XBMP.There is so many emulators on the xbox as well.That HDD does come in handly.

    For this you need some sort of mod chip. ^__^

    Better Gfx,load times cuz of cache on the hdd.Able to store music on hdd.

    yeah the xbox is great with its built in HD, even better if you upgrade it. Both systems are great in their own right. PS2 has some great games that the xbox doesnt, and vice versa. The only person who can decide which system is better if you, and what you're looking to get out of your system.

    Yep, I guess xbox is better with graphics. BUT if you put xbox and psx side by side and look which looks better in your living room. :)
    Ok, maybe you are not so much into nice design but I am. In my xmas packet there is definetly psx, it looks so coooool :)

    I heard somebody replacing the dvd drive in a Xbox with a computer dvd rom drive and said that it was better.I am not sure what it did but it must have been good.

    Hey L-Burna the xbox dvd drive is locked around 2-5x I think.Any a cheap dvd drive is 10-12+x.So switching the drive will load the games faster.

    But keep in mine that some title will not boot of the PC dvd drive.Thats why you will all ways have to keep ur xbox open.In order to keep on switching drive to drive.

    Look into this X-Deck @ http://www.xdeck.net/

    xbox has 2x the graphic cababilities of xbox, but xbox only has a few good titles where as ps2 has near endless.

    Xbox may have the stronger hardware but there software is no where in comparison to PS2. Plus PS2 is much easier to backup your games. PS2 for me until PS3.

    Im talking about making backups of games you own. My xbox games where harder to burn than ps2's because you have to ftp the data from the xbox to the pc rather than just putting a ps2 game in your harddrive and using recording software.
