    Hey guys....

    Look one thing is for sure that future belongs to the computer gaming, but for the time being i think i would like to shift from the computer gaming platform to the console platform. The reasons are quite obvious like.... most of the games needs you to constantly upgrade ur hardware and i cant change my Graphics card every 6 months just to enjoy the game to its full potential. Also there are other factors like driver problems, low-high fps rates, compatibility probs., and sometimes even software or O/S problem and several other unmentioned factors........

    While if i switch to XBOX, i wont be facing such probs. All i'll have to do is, get the CD and Bingo! No hardware conflicts no software crashes! Plus i'll have the advantage of bigger screen and also that XBOX supports 5.1 audio so i can always plug my home theatre speakers into it.

    Can anyone advice me on how to get XBOX in India.

    Computer gaming Vs Console gaming posts are also welcomed.

    Before ending up here's my finishing note...." The next time a gr8 game comes through, i wont be bothering about hardware, i know i already have it, i'll only bother about getting that particular cd"

    Thx! :)

    The place at Haji Ali --> Heera Panna. I would also recommend the PS2, more games there.

    doom3 should be available on both
    but ps2 for sure
    both technologies are comparable ... tho i think xbox has better yet untames technology
    as of now ps2 is more common and a preferred choice ..
    sony's ps3 ( i think its called something else tho) is supposed to be launched in 2005
    and they plan to launch it in india as well unlike the ps2
    so i estimate it to be here by late 05 - 06

    Technologically the X-box is much better than the ps2. Also the x-box mod chips support 120Gb HDDs. Getting game is not a big deal if you know where to look.

    Hey byte i think one shud chk out manish market b4 chking out prices @ HP. HP is always a bit expensive. Alfa is also reasonable.

    :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

    Hey sinnet!

    Thx for the offer. I've yet to decide b/w xbox and upcoming PS3. Well the thing is that i want to have a one time investment in this type of hardware as i've already mentioned that the future is computer gaming.

    so if needed i'll definately contact you.

    Thx a lot again.

    btw what's the price estimate??

    ps3 will outperform the xbox
    the ps's arent backwards compatible ... as far as i know ...
    thats y u have different games for the different ps's .. ( only makes sense )
    like i said if u wait for the ps3 u have to wait for like another year ... and thats a minimum !!!
    again going with the ps2 u wont be dissappointed ... but then again with graphics cards like the nvidia 6800 and the x800 xt we dont know what to expect of future games. ... sooo ... think it thru
    as of RIGHT NOW ps2 is ur best choice ...
    @Nemesis ... yeah the sony world's do sell the ps2's and yes at a comparatively exhorbitant price of 15k
    but it doesnt come wiht the mod chip so u wont be able to play the pirated ( effectively cheaper) game cd's which are soo popular
    also if u can download games from the net ( one of the broadband users) u can write it on cd and use it with the ps2 IF u have the mod chip
    also the ps2 had a limited version of different colours ... which if u decide to go ( and if sony workd offers it) will be min. 18k
    goto alfa or heera panna
    ps2 : 10.5k
    ps2 limited edition silver : 12.5k

    Hi Suave,

    If you can wait for ps3 then I think you should also try to consider to wait for the x-box2 release. According to the news, it's releasing date is also near. And if you want some more info on the both, then try this link: http://games.kikizo.com/news/200405/069.asp , though this is the last moth's document, but still quiet latest one. I hope this will help you to judge things better.

    And if you want to buy console right now then go for the x-box, it is better than ps2, though has a less number of game titles. As you stay in Delhi only, you can buy it from the famous Palika Bazar. There are two or three shops selling x-box and I think as well as PS2.

    the ps2 is backward compatible with the ps1. and probably, ps3 will b backward compatible with ps1 and ps2. just wait man-the console battle is hotting up again. xbox2 and ps3 r not very far away.

    Agreed with vishuis. And hey sauve that less no. of games for x-box as compared to ps2 is BS. I dont think any1 will buy each and every game that is released.

    PLus ps2 has a huge game catalog cuz it is the combined catalog of ps1 and 2. so there u go. However i wud wait till 2005 until sony releases the ps3. Ms on the other hand will probably wait it out till sony releases its console and come out with a console with higher specs.
