    well, my aunt has all three but she doesnt play them. she said she didnt like xbox though. oh a sidenote for those that might care, xbox is made in mexico while ps2 and gamecube are made in japan-better quality. i would think ps2 would still be better than xbox and gamecube.

    My vote goes for gamecube. Nintendo has a good history (aside from n64) of putting out really good systems.

    A little Nintendo history:

    Did you know that the Nintendo guy, whatever his name is, started out by making playing cards and board games? Mario didn't enter the scene until the early 80s.

    i've played all and i have to say that Xbox is the raddest of the rad.

    the controller is really weird and sucks at first but when you get used to it it's totally the best thing ever. Xbox has a 10 gig hard drive for you to save your games on OR you can get a memory card and take your saved games with you.

    the 10 gig hard drive also allows you to copy music onto your xbox and make soundtracks for games taht usually have crappy soundtracks like Tony Hawk.

    Game Cube is making all their games on mini CDs which is strange to me because they could have made their games all sorts of better by putting out more information on full size CDs. And after playing Game Cube, it feels and looks exactly like N64, which sucked. a lot.

    Xbox also has LAN card so you can hook it up to your DSL and play on a network. I know this sounds like a big Xbox ad, but after playing it for 8 hours after thanksgiving, it seriously is the most fun thing ever.

    so yeah that's my opinion after playing all 3.

    I'm a loyal Sony Playstation freak....so first system I'm going to be picking up is the PS2...it's got hella games out already...not to mention gran turismo 2000 and grand theft auto 3 (WEEEE!!!) but it's fucking cool.
    xbox will probably be the last thing i get because 1. it's alotta money 2. i'd be happier with a ps2 and 3. ITS MICROSOFT EVILLL
    workin on gettin a nintendo gamecube soon...gotta get my mario and luigi fix..

    xbox or ps2 for me....gamecube is pretty inovative though...those 3 inch CDs can hold 3 gigs of data...alot more than your conventional CD......i hate the game cube controller....depends on what games are released...PS2 is a very nice system, and has signed alot of developers, xbox has also signed pretty much all major developers also...game developers have already stated that they love working with the xbox since it is such a powerhouse...so right now im leaning towards xbox, but ps2 has some favorite game series that i enjoy, mainly final fantasy and gran turismo....im going to wait a year or so and see where the prices for these end up going...right now PS2 and xbox are retailing for 299 and the gamecube is retailing for 199, all a bit too steep for me right now....also microsoft and nintendo arent making shit for profits on these systems...in fact they are losing money, they plan to make that lost money up from the games released....both are mega corporations though (microsoft is a mega-mega corporation) so they can pretty much afford a temporary loss of profit.....bottom line...xbox or ps2 for me...i dont feel the gamecube at all...nintendo lost me at the 64.....look for sonic games coming out for xbox, microsoft and sega have a deal where sega makes games for the xbox and steps out of the hardware buisness....which sucks because i though the dreamcast was an excellent system...i still think its an excellent system...

    god damn it.

    xbox isnt going to have anything exclusive.. well.. it might have acouple games exclusive. but nothing near the numbers that ps2 and gamecube will have. i will stick to my ps2 and my gamecube.

    I'd have to say ps2. Look at the games: Final Fantasy X, Gran Turismo 2000, Twisted Metal Black, Metal Gear Solid 2, Tekken 4 (not for a while though),and then of course square will come out with plenty more awesome games.....while the only Xbox games i would buy that i've seen so far are Munch and Halo......maybe Jet Grind Radio 2...although if square goes over to Xbox i may have to buy it, for now PS2 looks to be by far the best choice out there....and Gamecube, well, there's just nothing good about that thing.......
