Yeah how funny is that? Just another scene in the upcoming movie:

Microsoft 2002:
A Comedy of Errors

40% price drop. You'd be spewin' if you'd bought one when they first came out. And at full price they were still losing like $100 per unit!

The XBox is getting killed everywhere........

What's even better though is that in Europe Nintendo are dropping the price of the GameCube before it's even released!! I think the Gamecube will be huge!!

Out of all of them though, if I had the time to play them I'd have the Sony.... it looks the coolest!!!

I mentioned that I had looked at the xbox because it had one game I wanted, and the guy at the store looked at me in a very knowing way and said, and I quote, "don't get the xbox." Then his buddy looked over and said, "PS2." Both conceded that the xbox had very good graphics, but the general concensus is that the xbox isn't doing well.

Strangely enough, there aren't many used xbox games showing up either. With teh ps2, there are so many owners, that anytime a game comes out, used copies show up pretty fast. Thare aren't any used xbox games around here.

Just buy a PS2, it's fantastic on that system. Also, GTA4 in Miami is supposed to be coming out in the not too distant future.

Gran Turismo A-spec is really addictive, but again, I'd rather play it on a big TV on a dedicated system rather than playing on a computer. But, maybe that's just personal preference.
