its not guranteed that games will be free to play online for ps2 for one thing,you gotta pay $40 for the NA to play online,56k people can play,which slows everything down

xbox live is $50 for the first year of service,for the $50 you get the 12 months of broadband only  online play,the voice communicators,and a pack in game. far more than $50 worth

Live is definitely worth $50!! Oh and I definitely use the XBOX more than my PS2. PS2 of course beats the XBOX game library, and thats about it. But quanitity never surpasses quality, and XBOX has some of the best quality games out. As far as XBOX going under, I doubt it especially with all the good games coming out this Winter along with Live. They'll do just fine this winter/holiday season to keep the Box alive.

Ugh,

MS isnt fucking stupid,

They know they cant jump into a market owned by Sony and nintendo and expect to blow everyone away,

They wouldnt have fucking bought Rare if they werent gonna stick around anyway, dont be an imbissil.

Whether you PS2 "Dick riders" like it or not, Xbox will be around for the duration of this generation of consoles, MS knows what it takes to succeed in any new area. Risk, so they took a risk, and currently yes they are paying for that, but its not like they didnt fucking expect it, they didnt become a huge rich company releasing, hoping for the best and bailing out if the results werent up to their liking.

Il say it plain and simple right here,

IF MS was planning on bailing out after this Xmas, THEY WOULDNT HAVE SPENT 375 MILLION buying Rare and trademarks,

IF anything, NEXT Xmas will be the big test, xbox has a ton of games due out this fall/winter, and a TON of games due out next year, if those flop, then yes, i could see MS bailing out,

You dont buy a 375 million $ devellopper and back out before it can release any games for your system,

Stop and think for a minute please,

This christmas poor sales = MS worried, but will rely and hope Rare and good new titles to take it to a new level next year

Next christmas poor sales = then ya, we'll all be pawning in our boxes, but thats not a matter to discuss for now.

This debate is dead anyway,
Ps2 fans will do the usual, "Xbox sucks, i cant wait for it to die"
Because they feel so insecure that the console they own might have competition, this for an unknown reason seems to trigger and release the intelligence of a 8 year old in any PS2 owner, GC fans dont seem nearly as idiotic.

PS2 online isnt completely free, its not like they wrap it up and send it to your door,

U pay for the package just like xbox live,

Xbox gives u 1 year free,
and after that its a FLAT rate, per month/year fee,

PS2 has free games, but games will also be released that cost you money to play them, PER GAME,

PS2's online system will be nothing compared to Xbox's, but hey, wtf should you guys care... all u ever seem to wanna play is GTA3,

Stop sayin all Xbox has is halo, when most of you only ever bring up GTA3 in your ps2's defense.

ever hear of a fuckin bomb ass game called Grand Tourismo 3 and another one called Metal Gear Solid.....or all the classic PS1 games that we can still play?....common fuckin admit it atleast that we got way better games.....i have always admitted that x box has the better processing power....now you give me a combination of the two and i will get that system but as for now id rather have a system that has better games than one with bettter power but not nearly as many good games......i will tell you this if RARE ever released a golden eye or bond game for xbox i will buy one just for it.... because in my opinion its one of the greatest games of all time up there easily in the top 5
