I think the cube LOOKS the coolest, but XBox IS the coolest.
GC is small and collorful. PS2 doesn't look right sitting side ways or flat. Xbox is dark and stuff




And I found a good article (Though kind of old) about which one to buy, just remember this was writen over 2 years ago, when PS2 graphics were still considered very good.... but not anymore, here is a quote from it:

Originally writen on www.Gamefirst.com
"99% of everything is crap." That’s just as true with videogames. PlayStation 2 has the highest install base in the world. So if you’re a publisher or developer trying to figure out a way to publish a game with as little cost to you and as much potential profit as possible, you’re going to publish that game on the PS2. It’s simple economics, but it doesn’t mean that all of those titles you see listed are even worth thinking about playing. And when you get down to the nitty gritty of really good titles worth playing the field looks much more even. This year there will be about the same number of worthwhile titles released on Xbox and PS2!!!

I have both...but what I don't have at the moment is a great deal of flexible income. Household purchases have to come first, unfortunately.

Ideally, I would replace my desktop PC with a new one, get a notebook in addition, and buy an Xbox. At the moment, I am juggling whether or not I should get an Xbox or a notebook PC, because although there are some great looking Xbox only games out there (and due for release soon), I would obviously get that additional functionality out of a portable PC - and adding a PC gamepad is pretty simple for some existing titles...

Hmmm...decisions, decisions...

Then get a better PC. My weakest PC beats the hell out of an xbox, plus I can type, work, and waste time on the internet. It's the responsible choice, and the games that do get released on both PC and xbox always look better on the PC.
