Current Game: The Force Unleashed
I would love to get this game when it comes out in the fall for pc but due to me being a poor college student and no job I can't buy a new pc with the required system requirements at this time. I plan on using PS2 version and the first person offline part of it. I don't always have a broadband connection. I do while in college but once I leave I have to go back to 56K modem. Plus, I am a huge non-internet gaming person.

I think you can only play in third-person view on the console versions of the game.

Also, I already have a good pc, so I'm not gonna want to spend my money on a HDD (and I don't like Final Fantasy all that much either...so there ya go).

I will play whether person view they have for PS2 as long as I get to play offline by myself as a single player. I was not sure whether it was first person or third person.

PC all the way.
I still have yet to see a console system that even comes close to having the graphics and power of a pc. xbox is ok, but lets face it, if ur using the exscuse... "oh i can sit infront of my tv, grab a controler and play away and not worry about a keyboard and mouse",or " a control pad is more comfortable... or whatever....... ITS THE 21st century, there are adapters for all the major Console controlers for ur pc and find me a console that has better graphics than a 256meg video card with TV out. There is never going to have a console out preform a pc, and a pc will always be used as the one source almost every multi-platform game will be compared to. as far as mods for the console versions.. pfft yea right. as it stands a console has no need for a HD due to the fact that it doesn't store any of the game info other than saved games on some kinda seperate media/memory card....so what good is a hd for a game that runs on a system that doesn't need a hd, just a memory card?? and when a console starts needing a hd for its games u might as well get a pc anyway.

Can a company afford to buy and build every combination of PC that can run the game?

Therefore
PC = Bugs, errors, crashes and patches, and patches to fix patches. Anoyed customers and rants on forums.
Xbox = Put the disk in and play the game.

Xbox should be renamed to PCBox. They're basically the same. The only difference is that the PC will get mod tools and the Xbox will have slightly lower graphics capabilities.

The different combinations actually improve the PC's performence. As long as you have a good PC then PC is the best. By a lot.

However, if you can't afford a decent PC, then that box is the obvious choice.

I will be satified with my PS2. If I plan on playing it online then I will save my money and buy an internet adaptor. Good thing I am connected to a college server that is a broadband connection. I mentioned in early post that I would get a PC version if I had a updated computer. I might get it for PC just depends if I can find a part-time job to save up money for a new computer. Otherwise, PS2 is the only version I would get.

Getting it for PS2. POSSIBLY Xbox instead(thinking about getting one)

Why?

No compatability issues. No weird computer lag. I won't have to worry about updating my console left and right. I can sit on my couch. The controller is gods gift to gamers.

And if I get that godsend that is offline multiplayer mode, I can have all of my friends over my place to get loud and shoot blasters.

All be getting it for Ps2. Mianly because my computer is pretty outdated with the video game stuff. sniff sniff. Either way this will be a great game. I will mainly use single player mode but if some day I ever get the stuff and then learn how to do internet multiplayer with Ps2 I might do that. I do wish that they possibly might do split screen. Who knows.

Ill be getting it for xbox for two reasons.

1.I dont own a PS2.

2.I have a comp but to many people willmean extra lag.

Also even though i dont have xbox live i like playing split with my sis and its always a laugh when i beat her.

Another reason why I am getting the PS2 version of Battleefront in the fall is I support Sony Playstation and Playstation 2 Star Wars games. I was ticked off because Rebel Strike, Rogue Leader, Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, Knights of the Old Republic, and Republic Commando were not on the PS2. I can only hope Lucasarts plans for one or two more star wars games for a 2004 release also. Plus, I don't have a job to save up money for a new computer. Old computers like mine with 8MB video cards can't keep up with today's video games.

Which version are you buying PS2?

I'll most likely be getting it for my xbox, but before i do that, i'll have to get my xbox fixed and then get xbox live, which most likely i won't be able to do but i'll have to try anyways.

buy a new xbox , its usually cheaper than getting it fixed.

(the other good thing about consoles. If my PC breaks, its tears and howling. If my xbox ever broke, it would cost less then the price of a video card for the PC)

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.
looking at a 17" is no prob for me i got a 32" tv hooked up to my pc and hard wear is no prob. So that means im going to get it on the pc for sure and o ya when im playing pc games im laying down playing them in my bed wireless keybord and mouse

PC as well

1) more players/servers on line

2) 64 players server (only 24 for PS2 and 32 for xbox)

3) for console the size of patcht is limited by the ridicolous HD memory size (15Mb for PS2 ) and bad patch support for console (still at the first patch in BF1 while pc version is at 1.3 beta )

4) no maps created by modders in console version

5) no voice chat for console version: you cant' join clans without voice chat - PC supports voice chat via other software (Teamspeak)

6) Network Adapter for PS2 or live kit for XBOX required: 30 euro average.

7) in PC version you can write your name with a keyboard (great invention.. )

8) ..

290) ...

13485) ....

PC for me. That is the only one I own. The PC's graphics are better than a console's, because they are updated more often. When a console come out, they are just as good as a new PC, but the PCs can be upgraded the next month. It takes a few years for a new console.

I never play a game on the PC a full graphics levels. Turn them down low for faster online gaming. You can only see so much detail on the half inch screen I have anyway.

PS2/Xbox/PSP

I am unfortunatley a MAC user. I have a PC laptop for preview my web work and the lady prefers that. It is not good enough for gaming.

So I am stick with the PS2/Xbox/PSP options. I have SWBF for both Consoles. I think the subway ride would be nicer with the PSP. Wouldn't you agree?
