i bought ghost recon for the xbox after X-Mas, and played it on Xbox Live!. i loved it, even though it was full of problems, bugs, and glitches (a far from perfect game). it would take about 20 minutes to find a game, and when i did find a game, it was usually full of lag. the patch that was released fixed some of these problems, but not all of them.

i bought splinter cell because it was a Tom Clancy game from ubi, and after playing gr, i thought it would be a pretty good game.


i looked forward to playing grit for months. i waited outside a local electronics store for 15 minutes before it opened so i could go home and play it. i was supposed to get a rebate, but i didn't.


today i found out about jungle storm coming out for ps2. it has 31 maps for online play. it has 2 campaigns. it uses voice commands. all things grit doesn't have.


is this the thanks xbox owners get from ubi?

You think X-Boxers feel bad? Us PC players got shafted on this. We been waiting for another expansion or GR2 for months now. We made this game popular and I have been playing it for over a year. And why don't we get another expansion when we have wanted it? I have never heard of a PS2 player even mention GR. >http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The reason the PS2 players get the add ons is that UBI sold out. Simple. Sony paid UBI for special additions to make the PS2 version more appealing. This way UBI makes more cash, and Sony gets bragging rights for a cool console. It's not fair. Especially for PC players as we have no corporation to pay for special platform specific add ons.

hey,

i'm a ps2 owner and i'm proud of it.
with or without ghost recon ps2 has bragging rights.
off course i am THRILLED to get grit and grjt on ps2 with network options.
I think it is DAMN unfair that u pc players don't get the new expansion or voice comm or the other cool stuff.
you deserve the best i mean that.
the xbox can go to hell for all i care. i don't like 'em. 'course they deserve a new edd on to GR but i wouldn't mind if they didn't.
u PC players got GR to the succes it needed to get an xbox convert.
and PS2 and GC.

SO UBI IF you could just correct this mis understanding we'll all be off fragging and stop wining.

i dont really cae about lack of voice comms, if ya want comms on PC download ventrilo

its that the extra missions and maps aren't availible...I'm surprised Sony managed to get the deal outta UBI, not Microspoof, i mean microsoft....they couldv'e fronted way more $$$ than sony.

I dont want to hear it from you PC guys....unlike your PC the XBOX cannot use custom/developer mods(and ther is a ton of mods available)...As for the PS2 I cannot even believe it can run GR at all with its weak system. Hopefully the developers will give us the Columbia missions as DLC...Thats all we can hope for since UBI sold us out to Sony

you're right.,. did you know the core clock frequency f the PS2 is only 333 Mhz ??? That is pretty sad. I can MAKE a PC with PS2 specs for about 100-150 bux. (And yes i could plug it into a TV)

The PS2 has a 300mhz 128 bit processor, as well as two vector units and other processors. Your PC is a 32 bit one, although 64 bit processors are appearing in the near future.

I think you will find the Memory Bus is 128 bit!

Goodnes, the PS2 does not have a 128 bit processor, and yes, 64 bits are appearing on the horizon, (ty AMD). But look at it this way, how in the heck can a PS2 have better hardware than a PC has availible when a *PS2 IS A COMPUTER* , just w/o windows, and outdated proccessors. (No windows, that might be your advantage)

Let's Face it you XBOX and PS2 Fans.
DANG! I'm tiered of this....
The XBOX and The PS2 are just like the NES and SNES's erras were. It will phase away, Fade away. IF it does not even still the Devs will abandon you.

With a PC, you only have abandoned yourself!

Well I own a PS2 and a PC, and would never dream of buying Gr for the PS2, I have a PC that wipes the floor with PS2 graphics and i'm getting about 300 to 400 frames per second with all graphics settings at max.(So Ubi GR2 has room for improvment on the graphics front with the newer PC available)
I use Teamspeak for voice comms (which is voice activated) a 6 button mouse and a keyboard, no way could i play GR with that silly PS2 controller.
As for Jungle Storm, whats the fuss guys it's only DS and IT repackaged for the PS2.(sony have been ripped of by UBI...Coooool).
As far as i'm concerned games like GR,Americas army, belong on the PC, and the PS2 should stick to unreal, quake halo etc.
