"Definite winner of the console war"4.5 starson by shortyman920
Pros: Fully Backwards compatible, plays dvds, awesome third party support.
Cons: only two controller slots, graphics aren't great compared to xbox's.
Summary: Playstation 2 is definitely the winner of this generation's console war. It has sold the most, is the most popular, and has the best third-party support. Some people might view things differently and say that the xbox is, but the general audience has picked sony's playstation 2 to be the best. With a Playstation 2 you don't have to buy a kit to play dvds, get a huge choice of games to play, and most of your friends with consoles have one. Sure, the graphics are better with the xbox and it has more hard-drive. But graphics aren't everything and you really don't need all that hard-drive space. An 8mb graphics works fine. I have 12 games, and i haven't even filled half of a card yet. Plus, I have a friend who has an xbox, after one week of playing it, it started freezing and malfunctioned. My ps2 has never failed me before after five years of use, and no matter what others think, stat-wise, playstation 2 is the sure-fire winner of this generation's console war.
