    Tempted to buy an Xbox360, but bought a PS2 instead!

    I was toying with the idea of buying an Xbox 360, but the price of games was putting me right off the idea £39.99 - £49.99 each

    So did the next logical step and bought a PS2 instead

    I've not had so much fun playing games in ages!! and the games are so cheap
    (well second hand anyway)

    I went overboard and bought 18 games and an extra one came with the console.
    An extra controller and an 8MB memory card (actually wish i'd bought a bigger one)

    Admittedly two of the games are not good (devil may cry, Summoner)

    But the rest are all good, 15 of the games were less than £5 each and two were £15 together and the other was 20 (Burnouts revenge)

    I know the PS3 is probably out later this year but i dont care as it just means people are selling perfectly good games for pennys

    So if you havent got one already get yourselves a cheap console and buy yourself some bargains.

    I've heard great things about it, it's coming out for PC though so i will buy it for that instead

    Actually one of the £5 games i got was resident evil - code veronica

    Any other suggestions for good games for PS2, feel free to let me know

    don't. really. there is *no* way they can port it to pc without making the controls either frustrating as hell, or such that they make the game painfully easy.

    and much as RE:CV is a good RE game, RE4 is a complete reinvention of the genre & a completely different league

    Hmm i see what you mean, just thought they might have a way to let me reconfigure the controls how i want them.

    I've got an Xbox controller with a USB converter on it which runs great with all my other PC games, but i'll wait for a demo to come out first and make my mind up then.

    If it's no good then i should be able to buy resident evil 4 cheap for PS2, by then anyway.

    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.

    Definately. I think the frame rate is better aswel judging by vidoes i have seen. The sepearte ways and assignment ada modes are great fun though and i dont think you get those on the GC version.

    It will be useless for pc however

    Code veronica isnt up to the technical standards of resi 4 but i felt it had a more engaging story. It doesnt offer anywehere near the lifespan of resident evil 4 though- must be 100hours of gameplay in that
