Xbox vs. PlayStation 2
All game consoles are the same, right? They all play games; what else do they need to do? A game is a game no matter what console it is played on, isn’t it? Even though Xbox and PlayStation 2 essentially do the same things; they are very different!
First and foremost is the price of the units. Yes they both cost the same, $149.99, but the thing to consider is the options that come with each console. Xbox and PlayStation both come with a controller, power cord, AV connector, and of course, the game console. Take a look at the other options that come and don’t come with each system.
When looking at functionality; Xbox has a built-in hard drive, for storing game saves and download content or map packs off of CD-Rom disks. On the other hand, PlayStation 2 also has a hard drive, but it is not included with the unit, it is sold separately, for about $50. Furthermore, there is always the option to buy a memory card for your game saves on both systems, but one is not needed for Xbox. While, either a memory card or a hard drive purchase will be required for PlayStation 2, if not, the games being played will start over from the beginning, every time the console is powered off and then back on. Memory cards on both systems range from around $10 to $20.
There is another item that needs to be bought separately for the PlayStation 2, a network adapter that is needed for online gaming, which costs about $30. The network adapter is something that comes built-in to the Xbox and is included in the base price.
When it comes to DVDs, both can play them, but in order to play movies on Xbox a remote control is needed, the cost is $29.99. This is a function that PlayStation 2 is capable of right out of the box. Yes, for PlayStation 2 a remote control is available for about $19.99, but it is not needed for movie playback.
Moving on, an examination of processor speeds, video output, audio output and size are needed.
When it comes to processor speed, the Xbox beats out PlayStation 2 by more than double. When it comes to the video output it is exactly double. What that translates out to be is that the Xbox is far more capable of displaying awe- inspiring graphics. Nonetheless, the PlayStation 2 is capable of displaying some amazing graphics as well, but when the maximum resolution is examined it is clear who the winner is. With Xbox’s maximum resolution at 1920 x 1080 and PlayStation 2’s at 1280 x 1024, there is a noticeable difference.
Next is the audio output, they are both capable of playing in stereo, Dolby Digital, and DTS, so in that regards, there is really no difference to be noted.
Does size really matter? With the Xbox weighing in at about double the weight and incapable of being stood up on its side, like its competitor, it can be difficult to find a proper spot on the shelf for it. But, then again, does size really matter?
In the end, even the costs of the gaming systems are different. To have a PlayStation with a hard drive, a network adapter, and the optional remote the cost would be around $249.99. An Xbox with the same options will cost $179.98, that’s about a $70 savings, not to mention having “twice the machine.” So yes, Xbox and PlayStation do the same thing, yet are very different.
This is a great console many people dont like it for its bulky size, but to me this is not a bad thing. Why? For one it is always going to be stationary, and when compering it to a PS2 sure its way way bigger than a PS, but the graphixs are way better. Its one thing or another size or grafics. Onother thing I like is that you dont need to buy memory card because of its built in memory. I have like 30 games and I still have plenty of memory left. Another cool feature I like is the system link capability both my brother and I have one, and when we get together with frineds to play halo or something like that its a blast. Although I dont have an X box live Account, My brother and I use the head set communicators to talk to each other when playing rainbow six game, and not be screaming at each other from different sides of the house. I bought one to replace my original x box that broke down. I had a leak in my rooms and the system got wet. The only thing I dont like about it, is that Microsoft brought out the X box 360. In my opinion the X box still had a few good years before actually replacing it with a 360, thats it. I actually love this Thing, I will eventually get a 360, but right now I still have a blast with this one
When Microsoft built the first X box They did a fantastic job and did a excellent job to all there loyal fans, Incredible games, Fantastic play, wonderful controls, and the best of all built with quality not quantity on mind, If you are lucky enough to own one of the originals. You own a gaming machine of true quality. But to go off topic Microsoft owns the gaming world a true apology, we were used as guinea pigs on the 360, how many paid so much and suffered breakdowns and repairs and still are on previous non jasper motherboards, Now to pay a comment so far it looks like they have done a better, not best but better, they owe more testing, I build full custom gaming systems to equal or rival Alien ware, but due to disability only for family, i called them and even explained what the problems were, free of charge asking for nothing. Because i truly care about the online gaming community, for almost 3 years they gave us 360s that died some as fast as 3 months other just at the end of the extended warranty till they finally (inconclusive so far as all three of my new 360's have yet to survive any of the other systems, my 2006 wii works perfectly still all my psps including the 1000 2000 and 3000 are all running, my gamecube is still working perfect, and the what they call awesome hard drive (120 gig please newegg sells for 50 bucks seagate drives still one of the best of the drives overall, so the little bit of software and a plastic case cost us 150 percent over what should be retail, and still charge the same price when a 500 gig drive is now available for 149) Come on microsoft show care for all your loyal gamers and build us bigger drives you already have the casing mold and you buy volume discount drives you could do us a 500 gig for 170 or less heavy emphasis on the or less and update our 360s to take them or at least a 250 gig for the price your charging for a 120 micro drive in todays tech. And take care of all your loyal gamers making you billions. Bill Gates I hope you read this, no matter what good you do you have to make up for all the loyal gamers your company burned us on, for 15 years I have supported you, with vista you gave us another me, those of us that bought it whether on laptops with no choice or oem or retail you owe us an upgrade at a decent price.
This XBOX had nothing wrong with it. I wonder why but all the XBOX Black Game Consoles seem to be for sale really cheap after Wii was released by Nintendo. Many of my bought XBOX for Repair, had nothing wrong with them? It is really strange. Anyway, I have plugged it, ran a XBOX Game in it and was able to play it.
The main reason I am buying these XBOX1 Black editions, because I am wanting to upgrade them, improve each one to their potential. Then resell each one through auction on EBAY.
They are old, but many of the games still appear really nice. Moreover, you could run Linux-DSL "Damn Small Linux" Operating system in them. To allow you to browse internet, utilize a USB-Keyboard, even wireless PS3 Keyboards work well with them.
I have not installed Linux in the HDD's yet, but have ran Linux through "Auto Softmod Installer" off a DVD-R. It has Word Processing, Free-cell, Mahjong, and probably terminal functionality.
I bought my XBOX as my first video game console (our family has had consoles, but this was the first console to be purchased by myself). I think I purchased my XBOX at least partly due to the fun experiences I had already had with XBOX, but also because there were games that I wanted to play that I had not been able to play until that point. I think for the first few years I had this console, which was back when I was much more into video gaming, I really enjoyed this console overall - the graphics, controller, and hard drive all seemed to be big positives. In more recent times though, there just don't really seem to be any XBOX games I've come across that are really memorable to me - I actually only have a few XBOX games now (I think the most I ever had was like 13-15 games, perhaps not a lot to most gamers, but considerably more than what I have now), but even those few games I have don't really impress me all that much anymore, perhaps the best one being Rallisport Challenge 2, an awesome racing game. In comparison, I think the Nintendo 64 and Nintendo Gamecube, together, have more games that I still enjoy playing and find more memorable. So, overall, I would rate the XBOX's game selection as "average." I have now experienced XBOX, PS2 Slim, and GameCube as of this year (I own a PS2 Slim as well, and my family has a GameCube), and I think all three consoles have their strengths and weaknesses, but I think the XBOX, despite it's power and cool looks, would have to be my least favorite of the three consoles; it lacks the amount of standard features seen with the PS2 Slim, like DVD playback (requires a separate package); it's much bigger and heavier than the GameCube and PS2 Slim; and it is the noisiest of the three consoles (not super noisy, but noticeable). The XBOX has it's positives though - it can pump-out some amazing graphics, as seen in games like Project Gotham Racing 2 and Forza Motorsport; it has four standard controller ports verses the PS2 Slim's two standard controller ports; you don't need to purchase memory cards since it has an internal hard drive (unless you run out of hard drive space and want to save more data); it is reliable, seeing it hasn't really changed since I got it in (I think) early 2006, or somewhere around that time - worst thing I think I can recall so far is the drive door recently started to stick, but using a q-tip and rubbing alcohol on the drive pulley seemed to fix that issue (the sticking issue only seems to appear every so often now, though if it does stick, I think generally within a few attempts the drive door will open just fine); and I think, compared to the PS2 Slim and GameCube, it has the best controller design (referring to the "S" controller), as it has a good amount of weight (feels well-made), and is very comfortable to hold and use. Overall, in my opinion, the XBOX is an "OK" console, but I think of the three consoles I have mentioned in this review, my pick would be the GameCube, as, in my opinion, it has graphics pretty similar to the XBOX, but it also has plenty of good games, runs quieter, and is much smaller and lighter. God bless!
