OK, Sandman’s a big baby, but he has money burning a hole in his pocket (thanks Spiny Norman ) and wants to buy a Sony Playstation 2.
However, he’s also heard of these Gamecubes and X-boxes. And he’s also heard that you can’t get English-language games here and that you have to send your brand new machine away to get neutered or spayed or something, otherwise all the characters jabber away at one another in Japanese. This he doesn’t want.
He thinks he should be able to get a PS2 for 7 or 8 grand.
Can anybody give him some advice on what he should buy (PS, Gcube, Xbox), what he should look out for, what modifications need to be made, where to get decent games, etc.
He might even stop limericking if the advice is good enough.
