PC for both. Never had an Xbox, never wanted an XBox or any console for that matter.

I never want a console. Ever.

besides, with PC, you can mod and do lots of sexy things...you just get the pure game with Xbox (usually)

Same here! Though I really do still like my Pong and Atari 2600 consoles! :D

Yeah, I suppose I did forget about my old NES. The only decent console I've ever really played on.

Stops dating himself & starts cursing the XBox for RedHawkes said reasons....:fist:

Well, I may have to reverse my statement about consoles. After watching the 'making of the Ep3 game' spot on the OT DVD's, I may break down & get a PS2 for that one game, it looks that damn good IMO. That is if LA's a bunch of ass hats & they don't build a PC port, which it looks like they won't......

I still refuse to get an XBox though. I WILL NOT be a pawn in Emperor Gates grand design for making fist fulls of $$$$ with TSL come Dec. So yeah, a PS2 if theres no PC version of the Ep3 game.

why i hear you ask

because you cant mod an xbox

i wonder if you'll be able to mod consoles of the future

Looking at the skewed poll results (PC:16, Xbox: 4, as of this post) you can just feel all the wonderful love for the Xbox can't you everyone?

:D

Aleggy
10-05-2004, 03:31 AM
i think there a a few reasons for this result

1) xbox owners may be teenagers ergo they do not own there own pc therefore cannot go online without permission so they do not even know of this site never mind the poll

2) even though the xbox is a powerfull console most teenagers own a ps2 instead because there are more games fore it

3) pc rules

4) some games are just better on the pc i.e. max payne, unreal tournament, doom, most fps etc etc

excellent ones there, aleggy!!!

although, one has to wonder why more of them don't find this site with xbox live (it does have a web browser attached)...

then again, maybe their too young to know how to use it... :D

I have Knights for my Xbox and are going to get TSL on Xbox too. What's best of PC or consoles can be discussed but I think it's pretty obvious that Xbox is the best console. Ok, maybe PS2 has more games but now there's hundreds of games for Xbox too and a lot of great exclusives like KOTOR(obviously), Halo, Project Gotham Racing 2, Ninja Gaiden, COR: Escape From Butcher Bay, Moto GP 2, SC: Pandora Tomorrow, Fable and a lot others. Plus FPS and racing games is better on Xbox because of the R and L triggers and the more precise joystick.

JediConsularAD
10-07-2004, 09:22 AM
i totally agree, although i have all 3 consoles mainly for the exclusive star wars games i beleive that xbox is the best out of them because they have little games but the ones the have are amazing, mainly kotor, when i first played kotor and landed on taris i just looked at the screen for 30 mins drooling at the graphics of it and it made me appreciate what lucas and bioware had done for us, brought us our own personal playground that we cannot get enough of and i just hope obsidian can do the the same although i have complete faith in them as i should judging on the screenshots.

back to the games issue i do find ps2 have a lot of games which is ok, but most of them are quite rubbish and lacking rpgs, yes i know that final fantasy is famous but that doesn't make it good and i am sorry if there is any final fantasy players out there but i felt like i was watching a movie rather than playing a game. It lacks choice and all you do is follow a set path and compared to the fighting in kotor it is old, turn based combat is for pokemon on the gameboy, i do know that kotor is slightly turn based but it is much more involving and it does all of the turn based things behind the scenes nd this makes it seem like you are choosing your own path, which in fact it turns out you are.

10-07-2004, 10:24 AM
There's another one that is much like Final Fantasy, but it's for the gameboy. That one also lacks choice, mostly you can pick a yes or a no, but if you say the evil one, somebody else takes over and sais you have to help or something along those lines, and you get the very same question and choices again, and again. and personally I think turn-based fighting always stinks. I just can't remember the name of that one (lucky me)

ok console wars

i have a pc a ps2 and a xbox

i have games for each and i have come to prefer certain games on certain formats

pc - i prefer fps i.e unreal tournament jedi knight jed academy

ps2 - works well action adventure i.e blood omen 2, soul reaver 2, prince of persia sands of time, devil may cry

xbox - i'm not to sure yet but here are some games i've enjoyed on it halo, thirteen

and i have played kotor on the pc and xbox and i'll probably do the same for tsl


which is the better console i hear you ask ps2 or xbox and my honest answer with my many years of wisdom is 'the one you own' everyone insists that the console they own is the best they will go on about how many games you can get for it the quality of the graphics and sound

and i'm sure that someone at some point did think that their jaguar console was pretty nifty when the only good game for it was doom :confused:


EDIT p.s. i nearly forgot there is a certain modder on these forums who dearly loved his pong machine

did you know redhawke that you can actualy bid for those on ebay:D

i hear what your saying allegy and i totally agree with you. I have all three consoles and a pc though and i think that statistically the xbox excells with graphics and framerate, obviouslly no above pc level. Although many ps2 owners may disagree because they are in love with them but it is true and above the xbox is the Lord vader of computers, the pc.

hey man i agree

but to be honest the line i used that the best console is the one you own stems from being fed up of hearing about console wars and which one is the best since the lovely nes and sega master system

and weren't those pong machines great:D

consoles are great, but PC's are better, better resolution, capability, graphics(like editing the setings of sound, and graphics), harder controls with the keyboard though, but better varitey, have a mouse, mod, and thats about it. Pc's rock

Aleggy, if you liked Devil May Cry you would probably love Ninja Gaiden. I've completed both games and NG reminds me a lot of a better version of DMC, even though I still think DMC was an awesome game.

I voted for X-Box and PC.

1) I'm an adult with both the internet (duh) and an X-box. I don't want to take up space on my crappy computer with a game I may not like. I know I'm going to like this game.

2) I'm going to get it 2 months early and you are not. Deal with it. I'm not going to get patches for X-box or mods- you are.

3) ^^^^ That's why I'm going to buy both. I like mods and would love to mod my own.

4) The ps2 is old and obsolite. It has nothing on the X-box. A few crappy games more?! The only good games on ps2 are also on X-box and others.

5) Not knowing what memory or sound card I need prior to buing a game is not a problem when I can buy it on a console.

6) I can't get all the cool side quest mods on my X-box. Box haters like Redhawke are some of my favorite modders and it bothers me that you are sooo jealous of X-boxers because we get it early!!! Are you willing to get an unfinished product early or get quality on time?!

7) Take a frikkin' pill already, JEZZ!!

p.s. wether your a fan of xbox or ps2 or even a game cube they are not considered obsolite until people stop making games for them :D

Especially when they could play the whole game through just the mouse, if they were so inclined. To each their own, I guess.

& yes, pong pwnz, but the original PittFall pwnz that.
