Probably because people couldn't use cheap CD-Rs to play games on it

the DC is a more solidly built machine, its just the bloody lazer, and the internal battery that is flat in every bloody one, its the whole reason why the date has to keep being set

the Ps2 has a ton of things that go wrong, disc tray breaking, USB ports snapping, lazer problems, other ports breaking

PS, I bloody love the PS2

For people that have played both systems a lot, I can't see why they voted PS2

I had both.

Prefered the DC.

Bought it as soon as it was "hacked". Ahhh 22 hours to download an iso over dial up! The memories.

Though I bought as many games as I downloaded. Well maybe not. I played more bought games than downloaded. I fact probably used it as a demo.

Got into the PS2 later for the early GTA access (still better on pc as usual!). In fact I think i drove to meadowhall on a gta release day and got a bundle!

I guess I liked singstar on the PS2, yeah I am sick! (I installed a flip lid on a ps2 mini so have all the odd forigen sing stars too!)

I'm fond of the DC but it's hard to argue with the PS2's library.

Dreamcast for me, easily in my top five consoles.

PlayStation 2 for me. I've always wanted one (to sit with the PS3 & PS1 I already own) and the Dreamcast just doesn't appeal to me (sorry :oops: )
