|Ryan, I have a question I'm kind of curious about. You have stated that you were a big PSOne fan, so when the PS2 came out, what made you not want to get it, and instead get the Xbox over a year later? Just curious...|
That's ok to be curious, but understand this; I don't hate Sony. I just don't like the decisions they've made in the past few years.
When the PS2 came out, I was in love with my PSone. It was still going strong, unlike the Xbox after the 360's launch, and I was still playing a lot of games. I didn't feel that I needed to spend $300 on a system that could play the games I was still playing. Lets face it, the PS2 launch sucked. I looked at the games at launch and the games that came out in the coming months and wasn't looking forward to anything. I also heard about this little game called Halo
, not coming to the PS2. I went over to my buddies house and played MGS2
a lot and FIFA 2001
, oh and ATV Off-road Fury
. They were fun, but not $300 fun. You have to understand, this was 5 years ago. I had just started working. Anyway, another friend got an Xbox as a family gift and we rented Halo
, played it for about 17 hours straight and I went out and bought a Xbox with all my money, my coming up birthday and my later-that-year Christmas money.
