Actually, your statement is wrong. GT4 is the only game X-box does not have for racing (worth wanting). However, they are getting two exclusive Rally games. Rally Racer and Colin 4. Also, it isn't possible for the graphics and sound to be better than the X-box. PS2 is limited. I have X-box games that graphically and auditory wise can't even be closely duplicated on PS2. And this includes the GT4 scenes I have seen. However, GT4 will be a fantastic game because it is a spectacular game and it has 500+ cars. :shock:merk20VT said:i have both, and from a car enthusiast's perspective i would definatly reccomend sticking with your ps2. Xbox has better graphics, better speeds, and Halo; but that's about it. PS2 is going to have GT4!!!!!!! and it's game developers are much better IMHO.
plus, GT4 will be better in gameplay, graphics, and sound than any other xBox game.
Sony is going to use the Cell processor in its Playstation 3 console, slated for a release in 2004 or 2005. But as the initial value of the agreement between IBM, Sony and Toshiba has been projected to be between $2 and $ 4 billion, the three companies clearly have other uses for the processor in mind. Designed to process information at supercomputer speeds and handle broadband communications, Cell could be used in multimedia computers and enterprise environments as well.

So far, the chip triumvirate of IBM, Sony and Toshiba, which pledged $400 million to the project and sent engineers to a joint development center in Austin, Texas, has been short on details of how Cell could benefit each company.
The processor has always been associated with Sony's PlayStation 3 and peer-to-peer computing, but will do more than allow players to battle opposing characters in multiplayer Internet games, Kahle said.
But Cell will go "beyond gaming to just entertainment in general," Kahle said.
Shin'ichi Okamoto, chief technical officer for Sony Computer Entertainment, seemed to confirm Cell's presence in the next version of the PlayStation during a speech earlier this year at the Game Developers Conference when he mentioned that Sony and IBM were working on a processor called "cell" that would help Sony achieve its goal of boosting performance of the next PlayStation a thousandfold.
"We are working for the third-generation (PlayStation) with this very aggressive and crazy goal," he said. "Moore's Law is too slow for us."
From his own analysis, Doherty believes Cell will create a new extensible computing platform. A set-top box containing a Cell chip could, for example, combine to share processing power with a Cell-powered high-definition television to render the graphics of an animated movie.
Did you read above? They will improve it a thousand fold. :lol: And it will be 100 times better than the current P4 chip. :shock: (see below)Honda_to_VW said:xbox. Looks and sounds great. pgr2, crimson skies, colin 3 (and 4) are all very fun games to play.
The ps2 is technically the weakest of the current consoles in terms of graphic capability.
What's behind Cell?
While the processor's design is still under wraps, the companies say Cell's capabilities will allow it to deliver one trillion calculations per second (teraflop) or more of floating-point calculations. It will have the ability to do north of 1 trillion mathematical calculations per second, roughly 100 times more than a single Pentium 4 chip running at 2.5GHz.
Cell will likely use between four and 16 general-purpose processor cores per chip. A game console might use a chip with 16 cores, while a less complicated device like a set-top box would have a processor with fewer, said Peter Glaskowsky, editor in chief of influential industry newsletter Microprocessor Report. Some of these cores might perform computational functions, while others could control audio or graphics.
Yea its definately better. Unforunately the games aren't, it's all about the titles baby! Buy what has the games you want.Thumber said:Ok, I've been told that the XBox is better and at one time this was explained to me.
So is it???
I have really no complaints about the PS2. It would suck however to have to sell all the games I aldready have...like 40 of em'.
