I know you personally didn't say that, and I apologize if it sounded like I did. I just meant, the PS2 fanboys, not that you are one at all, keep yelling PS2 this, and PS2 that.
Yes, if it's set up like Live, with all the awesome parts of live, that while trivial make the experience great, are incorporated, for FREE, obviously, the better deal will be with PS2. BUT, it hasn't happened yet, so, as of now, this is speculative. Right now it IS NOT SONY LIVE=FREE. It is Sony Online, missing some things that Live has, that DO actually matter=Free.
I don't really agree that Gamecube has better graphics than XBOX either, though, for the most part, GameCube graphics are great. They're definitely overall better than PS2.
I'm not saying PS2 has crap graphics, I'm just saying XBOX's are better. If you agree with that, then I have no argument about that with you. Some people however, don't seem to agree with that.
And while the type of graphics can be personal preferance (regarding cartoonish, or realistic, etc) overall, the "best" graphics is pretty quantitative. Graphics can be different, but one is usually the "best".
If you prefer PS2 for DECENT graphics, excelent games, and great controller, than I completely agree, as I know the PS2 has all these things.
As for sales, that really doesn't matter. That tells me what everyone else likes, it doesn't say which is better. PC's obviously sell more than Macs, but a Mac fan would never say that a PC is better in any way.
