    i hate to disapoint you but the gamecube is actually more powerfull at least in the processor speed as gamecubes specs are

    485MHz custom CPU with 162MHz custom graphics processor 40MB total memory; 2.6 GB per second memory bandwidth
    12M polygons per second; texture read bandwidth 10.4 GB per second

    and ps2's are

    CPU: 128 Bit "Emotion Engine"
    System Clock: 300 MHz

    System Memory: 32 MB Direct Rambus
    Memory Bus Bandwidth: 3.2 GB per second
    Co-Processor: FPU (Floating Point Multiply Accumulator x 1, Floating Point Divider x 1)
    Vector Units: VU0 and VU1 (Floating Point Multiply Accumulator x 9, Floating Point Divider x 1)
    Floating Point Performance: 6.2 GFLOPS
    Compressed Image Decoder: MPEG2

    Graphics
    Clock Frequency: 150MHz]
    DRAM Bus bandwidth: 48 GB Per Second
    DRAM Bus width: 2560 bits
    Pixel Configuration: RGB:Alpha:Z Buffer (24:8:32)
    Maximum Polygon Rate: 75 Million Polygons Per Second
    3D CG Geometric Transformation: 66 million Polygons Per Second

    Audio
    Number of voices: ADPCM: 48 channel on SPU2 plus definable by software
    Sampling Frequency: 44.1 KHz or 48 KHz (selectable)

    so yea i guess the ps2 overpowers the cube but not in all aspects
    Wii setup: 1 Wii console, 2 Wii motes, 2 Nunchuck attachments, and Wii sports

    The remote is the one thing that is keeping me from buying the system, and I really, really want to get wii over ps3, but just can't unless their is an alternative to the wii remote.

    i believe matt cassamassina first used it. in fact, in an interview perrin kaplan gave him credit for the name. he's ign's wii editor, in case someone who doesnt know that happens to be here...hahahahhha..

    as far as the controller goes, its important to realize that every major console nintendo made has had a breakthrough in controller tech, if not multiple.
    NES: face buttons w/ a d-pad
    SNES: standard 4 button layout and shoulder buttons
    N64: analog stick and trigger
    CUBE: first-party wireless
    Wii: well.....well see in another 5 years if its all that big a deal

    i trust nintendo, a little too much at times

    the new news at GC has scared me a little, "the wii will release at the end of the year"....to me, that sounds worse than "quarter 4, 2006"......

    sony: 2 shoulder buttons? lets make 4....an analog stick? lets make 2

    Nintendo's new controller is the next generation in gameing. Nothing on the market compares to it. Also, the Wii graphics will be fantastic. Just because Nintendo is not talking about graphics doesn't mean they won't be great. The fact of the matter is, people can be closed minded to new ideas and new concepts. In order to understand what Nintendo is doing you have to break away from the norm. Technically, yes the Wii may be inferior to Xbox 360 and PS3 but how much of those systems power is really being used for games and not just added functionality. Wait till you see Twilight Princess. Then you will know that the Wii graphics will be Terrific. Nintendo is betting dat the graphics from last generation is not yet outdated. I bet the graphics on Twilight Princess can compete with any games that comes out on Xbox 360 and PS3.

    twilight princess is made on the cube. it will be the best looking game on cube, and possibly wii, but honestly, it will not compare to ps3 and 360 games graphically. it will not compare to upcoming wii games either. it wasnt originally made for wii, its using cube graphics.

    I just have to give this a WTF, if you dont want to use the Wiimote then why exactly are you buying the Wii? The whole point with this console is the motion sensing and you don't want to use it?
