Xbox Vs. PS2 Redux

November 15, 2001

Over a year ago we posted the original Xbox Vs. PS2 editorial, and it's been incredibly popular. However, it's also very out of date, so we've updated with a whole new editorial, Xbox Vs. PS2 Redux. You can check it out here. And if your mind is already made up, you'll need to know what to get when you pick up your Xbox. To help out, we've got a brief Xbox Checklist that should help out.
