- Which do you think is best?
- Would buying a certain one in Taiwan cause any problems when you take it back to your home country.
- You can play dvd’s on the Xbox and P2, but what regions does this support? (just the Asian zone, or worldwide)
1- It depends–look at the games. I don’t have much faith in the XBOX and think it’ll be the first casulaity. Microsoft has already done some really boneheaded this with the XBOX… The E3 expo is going on right now. Big ‘N’ had a nice press conference showing lots of cool games—sounds like the pres of Nintendo needs to learn how to play them before demoing them himself .
The PS2 has tons of great games. Both PS2 and XBOX games are available in “pirate” form, unfortunately (well…unless you like cheap copies).
2,3- If you buy a Japanese console, it’ll ONLY play Japanese games (unless modified). Same with American, European versions. As for the DVD region, they only play DVDs in that specific zone (ie buy a US ps2, region1) (again, unless mod’ed)
