    Well I sold my PS2 for...:sad:....FarCry and Call of Duty 3! So anyways I just loove RPGs...I played a lot of Dark Cloud and Dragon Quest...and I want to beat them (again in some cases) I just never had the chance!
    I do understand the 360 is getting RPGs...with guns!
    Not only that but the 360 seems like all it has are shooters!!!
    I dont know...could anyone tell me what I should get?

    and Blue Dragon (FF style japanese RPG)

    Blue Dragon looks amazing....but mass effect and too human look like any other shooter!

    Neither Mass Effect or Too Human are shooters and believe me I thought it's all shooter too now I am so pumped to get my 360 but between that and the PS2 well tough choice they are about equal and both are getting more

    I would say to get a PS3. Then you can play some good next generation games, but you can still play all the PS2 games.

    ....I wish! The PS3 might be an option once the price drops....but the PS2 is only $130!

    Well its not that much more than a 360, unless you plan on getting the core.

    I would suggest on getting an xbox 360. Main reason being is that Halo 3 will be coming out shortly and another GoW game is expected to launch in the following year. So if you enjoy those types of games I suggest on getting a 360.

    anything BUT!
    mass effect is a huge RPG but some of the fights (minor ones) are playing shooter style
    too human is like devil may cry/god of war, you have melee weapons and guns and you do huge combos and what not and cast spells

    Final Fantasy XII isn't on the 360. Enough said.

    The PS2 is a great system for RPGs but I would also have to go with 360. Goodluck with whatever you decide.

    If you're into RPGs you're better off with a PS2. They're nicely priced these days. If you can I'd recommend getting a 360 as well- it's no good for RPGs (the only ones I can think of are Blue Dragon and Oblivion) but it's still a good console.

    I have a 360 and a Ps2, but at this point I'd rather have my Ps2 by far. It's just got a better and more diversed library, but who knows maybe the 360 will follow the Ps2's lead in the future.

    Sure the 360 will have Eternal Sonata, Blue Dragon, and Lost Oddysey...but that's 3 games. It seems the ps2 is still having new RPGs though in addition to its large library of RPGs, Odin Sphere in particular looks amazingly awesome.

    As of now the 360 seems to be following the xbox's ways because it's mostly action/shooter games, and a couple of games out of those genre and that's it.

    I say Ps2, it's got what RPG gamers want and IMO what hardcore gamers that play all genres want as well.

    Glad you went with a PS2. I was going to suggest to. There are sooooo many good RPGs on the PS2. Not even the ones out now. You can get some classics on the internet for dirt cheap. Just to name a few:

    (First and foremost) Final Fantasy VII, VIII, X, and XII (I heard X-2 was ****, and I personally hated IX)
    Xenogears
    Vagrant Story
    Chrono Cross
    Dark Cloud (100+ hours gameplay)

    Not to mention the kick ass action/platformers:

    Jak & Daxter
    Sly
    Ratchet & Clank
    God of War
    Shadow of the Colossus

    Gran Turismo 4 is great too, but Forza is probably better.

    Im paying 31.00 bucks on Ebay for one that works fine...but the tray dosnt open up sometimes (his solution is to just press on the tray and it will come out) Damn...Ebay is intense though...really I leave for one minute and someone else bids higher than me!
