I play POP on Xbox...

But WW could have used more polish to use most of the console performance.

It must have been made the same for all the consoles, games that use the xbox's full potential are usually "xbox exclusive" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

X-box off-course. Other game consoles seem like girly-men to it LOL!

Not necesserly.

GTA 3 and Vice City have been more polished for Xbox and PC, and Rockstar is currently doing the same for GTA:SA

You should have added multi console.

I voted PC because I got that version first, but I have got the GCN version also.

Seriously,are you smoking?

PS2 doesn't get close to the Xbox in enjoyable games.

What are your favourite games "exclusive" to your console/s /pc ?

hmm if we speak of exclusive games, the GameCube is winning be much! Nothing is compared to games like Mario, Zelda etc. Nintenos exclusive titles just are awesome.

There may be good games on Xbox and PS2 as well that are exclusive, but they are very rare and often gets converted to PC. So with all respect for Xbox and PS2. But the GCN is really the winner on exclusive titles...

PS2. It's perfect for my little hands.
GC has a funky controller. Even with the shrunken version, I can't play right.
XBox is just rediculous. It's gargantuan.

I got my boyfriend an XBox for the holidays. He wa so happy! But after 10 days it BROKE, it short-circuted somehow, and now he got a replacement one. But goes to show you you can't even trust a BRAND NEW XBox to work properly.

I like my PS2. It has an amazing array of titles. And most XBox-exclusive games eventually port to other consoles. Look at Splinter Cell and its sequel.

PS2!!!

PS2!!! <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Hmm i am partially agreeing with you. The Xbox i think has a very clumsy and large controller. I just simply don't think it is possible to hold it in a optional way where you can reach every buttons.
I think the PS2 controller is ok, actually it is just a more rough version of the GCN controller. But my hands and muscles starts to hurt after playing with the PS2 controller for some time.
The GCN controller is the most muscle friendly. It fits perfectly into your hands and you can reach every button very easily. The only bad thing about it is the strange Z button, that is a bit misplaced, but still i think its far the best controller on the market. Ive heard some people complaining about it being to small, well i know a lot of "big-handed" fellas, they have never had any trouble holding it.

And to Xtra, i don't think im able to change your oppinion so i will not include all my hard-hitting oppinions, but let me just take Mario in defence and say that the games are too clever and "high-standard-quality" to be childs games. Childs can easily play them cause everybody can enjoy them, but it is certainly games that challenges all adults, so calling them childlish well i could come up with many many other titles that is far more childlish than Super Mario!

I am playing on the Playstation2 just bewcause i am playing mostly on that console. I aslo have a GameCube, but i just got my PS2 shortly, so it was nicer to buy it on the PS2, i think...

And about the Xbox, microsoft is just good with computers, **** with consoles, so i just want that they stop making them.
(yes, the Xbox is may nice for the very adult ones that don't care)

I think you're forgetting the controller "S" for the xbox it's smaller and neater, plus I've only got lil' hands and I loved the original GIANT conrtoller but they stopped making them http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Not all xbox exclusives port, and anyway you still can't get either of the Halo games on any other consoles! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif (I know it's on PC)

by the way my xbox broke at xmas too, but it was about 3 years old and I think it died from exhaustion I used that much lol!

I agree with Roxy (I can't spell the first part of your name http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif ) and Dafnie that Xbox has a annoying big controller, I play on a PS2 and really like its controller, but nothing is better than the Nintendo 64 controller.

PS2 baby. Whatchoo talking about, no exclusive games? Final Fantasy, anyone? And you can play all the original Playstation games on it too. GameCube sounds fun too though, because of Mario and Zelda games.

I've tried the small GC controller. It's just situated funny. The D-pad is in the wrong place! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif My hands actually hurt after playing for a while. The first time I played on a GC with the regular controller, I got sore thumbs! I NEVER get sore thumbs! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

The N64 controller is still quite big, though. Of course your hands situate themselves differently depending on the game you are playing (and the buttons needed), but it's still pretty big!

Meh. PS2 controller is perfect for my little 'Japanese' hands, as I call them. That's not meant to be racist in any fashion, it's just that my hands are so petite that they're reminiscent of a delicate young Japanese girl's hands. But the fingers are still NIMBLE... no need for button-mashing here, folks... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Use the grey analog stick! I think on almost every controller you get sore thumbs when using the D-Pad much.

Ok Sea_Maiden i missed that point. Final Fantasy is sure a heavyweighter! But don't they sometimes gets converted to PC? I think some of them does, but yeah still your right it's a huge excluvive title. But still don't think it can match all of the Nintendo series http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

True...well I know they used to. And they used to be a Nintendo company way back when. I'm not sure if more recent games like FFX and beyond have been released on PC though. But they might've! As for the Nintendo series...yeah, I couldn't ever choose between that and Final Fantasy! But one thing that gives Nintendo the edge is the awesome two-player games that are fun for just about anyone.
