Which Version Are You Buying PS2? X-box? PC?

I just want to get an idea where every falls in.

I personally will buy it for PS2. Don't really care about better graphics on other systems.

I'm getting it for PC, even though I have an XBOX and a PS2. With the PC you'll have more players online at a time, better visuals, and. . .3rd party mods that will undoubtedly be made for this game, which will add to the longevity of the game itself.

I love the controller too much, so I'll be playing it on my Xbox. My PC-days are over, much more relaxing playing videogames on the couch


Prequel Trilogy, yes thank you!

Darth Marc yes the visuals and more ppl are definately a plus but as for me all i care is the number of ppl. However as to the mods PS2 HD is comin out next months and all kinds of mods and update will be available for the PS2 games such as SW Battlefront.

I have a PS2, but I'll be getting it on PC. I don't have PS2 online and PC is way better in terms of everything.

PC for me.

Better graphics, more people playing at once, and a much better control scheme in my opinion.


Of course I'd love to settle the debate between consoles and PCs by having the game support cross-platform games. But that could only be a slim possibility for the PS2 and PC versions.

I will get it on the ps2 for 2 reasons. 1. I .....don't have an xbox and 2 because i like the controllers and i don't care about how many people play online.

I will get the game for xbox since my computer is severely outdated and i have xbox live for online play anyway. i will only miss out on slightly better graphics and a possibility of modding.

My first thought is to buy PC version, because I don't have a PS2 or Xbox. Although I would hope they may make a Mac version if it is successful (yeah yeah make fun of me), but that is unlikely since they don't tend to make the mod software for it.

It doesn't matter what the PC will have better graphics and more ppl. I hate sitting in front of dam monitor uncomfortable looking at this gay 17" monitor and using dam mouse and keyboard. Lagg and Visual issues are huge too cause you always need the best hardware to actually play the game. And the dam connecting problems and stuff.

As for Playstation 2 and X-box you sit your ass comfortably on your cauch with a beer and some food beside you. With Home Theatre system bringing surround sound and 52" TV screen. Relaxing on the on the comfortable leather seats with a very comfortable and practical controller in your hand.

That's what I am talking about and I dont wont to get into any arguments over which system is better or not cause you already know what think and neither me or you going to change our opinions so don't start war in this post.

Point well taken DJ ADI. I will most likey get it for the x-box becuase of the online gaming. I will play the single player mode but will most likely be on multiplayer most of the time

In all truth......there is no reason to get this on PS2. The PS2 is a useless graphically challenged console. So it sells but thats clever marketing and high sales doesnt always mean that its any good.

the fact that it came out a year before any of the other one's is a major factor as well. though the xbox is capable of some impressive feats, if the developers use its potential.

The x-Box is doing pretty much all it can for a console. The Next Generation is gonna be better...I hope...doesn't beat a PC though

That's truely a lot of xbox version flying off the shelf in a few months time. Although I heard you have to pay a monthly subscription to have Xbox Live and then you also need broadband which is another subscription.

I have come to the conclusion that you lot are either paid just enough money, or you are good at annoying your parents.

The current XBOX has a modified version of Windows 2000, so that's nothing new. The PC rumor is blown out of proportion. MS will still cater to the gamer demographic.

If I do decide to buy the game, it'll be the PC version. Without a PS2 or an X-Box, those versions wouldn't be much use to me.

I'll be getting the xbox version. I just prefer the hassle free xbox for gaming. Xbox live is just great.

I really dont like the all the hassle that unfinished products give me on the PC (I cant remeber tha last time I bought a game on the PC that didnt need a bug fixing patch on the the day of release, especially for online games).

It may have better graphics on a PC (not by much) and there may be Mods. But there will also be far more people using cheat programs, it'll need patches to fix compatablity.

So give me a console version every time and has already been said, the sofa is far more comfortble than the cold office chair.

Although if a bug is released on the XBox version you are just stuck with it.

PC for sure.

Okay Reasons:
1) More people is good
2) Better graphics is good

Good reasons:
3) PC controls are way better.

Undeniable Reasons:
4) I only have a Gamecube.

Well I don't want to start a controversy here or anything but it really pisses me off people when you say this is better that's better.

If you like the PC controls more don't say they are better but simply that you like them better. You are not right about that fact don't say something that's it's not true and is only ur belief. It's like me saying that PS2 controls are better even though I may think that they are it doesn't mean they are. Different people different preferences.

I can personally prove you that the animation on the PC and X-box are way worst than the ones on the PS2 and GC, whether you believe me or not. Yes the PC and X-box got amazing graphics but that's the resolution and shyt. The other part is the animations, motions of characters and stuff which as I said look bad. They move like robots in many cases and are very stiff. Both use the same processor that's why X-box is just a PC inside a box.

You will say WTF am I talking about and how would I know. Well I got all the systems. I buy games for PS2 unless the Resident Evil Series for GC or Halo for X-Box. However I remember when I compared games such as MOH: Frontline or Sport games on those systems I could really see a difference in characters movement between PS2 and the PC and X-box. Also when I watch any type of game show i can easily know what system the game is on. I just see the difference right away.

Well if you don't agree with me then don't say shyt untill you try playing the same game on different systems and see for yourself cause you will. And if you don't then you are just so blinded by what other peple say and commercials and stuff and are one of those people that no matter what you tell them they always think your wrong cause they like something else.

Well peace out.

PC for sure - I refuse to buy a console.

I can't get past the fantastic ease of a mouse/keyboard combo + better graphics + mods/downloads/patches + more players/game that PC brings.

In fact, my only whinge is that the PC version could probably be even better if the game wasn't being designed simultaneously on three platforms.

Maybe, but to use the PS2's hard drive, you have to spend lots of money on it - then manually fit it. The PC has all that ready made.

Also, hardly anyone has PS2 online...in comparison with how many people have online capabilities with a PC. I know loads of people who have a good PC (with online stuff) but no console.

One last thing, the PC is getting mod tools. So it will have the mods and modding capabilities that are unknown to the PS2 and Xbox versions.

Just like to add that its the most surprising because they've done thier best to make it look good on the PS2. The PC and Xbox versions will still look better though.

I plan on buying the PS2 version!

I have a PC but since video games specifications have increased since 2002 I can't play new star wars game released such as Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, Knights of the Old Republic, Galaxies, Republic Commando, or Battlefront. I don't mind graphics. I love playing Star Wars games on my PS2 since I don't have the time or money to invest in an X-box or Gamecube.

Excelsion i never said that PS2 got better graphics than PC or X-box i just simply wanted to prove that it ain't bad as you all think. It might looks just as good as X-box does.

Secondly there is tons of ppl playing PS2 online. Just look at game such as Socom 2 which beat the online record of most subsribers ever not only on PS2 but in all games. Everquest and THPS are another exaples of how many people actually play so that's not a probelm.

Thridly $100 buck on a Hrad-drive is nothing, as it also includes FFXI. It aint a problem is like buying 2 games.

The only thing that only pisses me off at this time about PS2 and X-box is the number of ppl playing i would really like 32 rather than 16 players, but that's about it.

And as for mods u never know if they are gonna be released for the consoles the harddrive is a new thing and it wouldn't be a big problem of finding a way of implementing Mod tool into the consoles.

I guess the xbox and ps2 could do it as well as the pc, but I would imagin it would be quite an investment (for somebody who doesn't have everything needed eg: hard drive, broadband, xbox live, game itself etc).

If mod tools were avalible to the console then you would surely have to go looking around for a keyboard and mouse. Out of interest is a keyboard included with xbox live and ps2 online? Modelling with a joystick would not be the best idea in my opinion.
