Im not a xbox gamer but im a PS2 gamer. I find that PS2 has better games and a better controller design. I love playing Tony hawks on the net and also SOCOM. Im actually going to get SOCOM 2 this week, it has to be the best online game at the moment. I suggest that you try it out. Most PS2 online games are free to play and i heard that they are going to keep it like that. Dont you have to pay to play xbox online? if so that sucks.
