Console Wars 3 - Play With This - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

The Playstation 2 is ready to toe the line in this weeks installment of the Console Wars. Does the PS2 have the power to blow away the competition or should it go play with itself? Find out.

Sony's taking the strong silent approach to the console wars. They don't talk about the Playstation 2 much and they barely have any ads. But while everyone is waiting for the Gamecube and the Xbox to come out, the PS2 is the king of the consoles. How well is the PS2 going to hold up to the competition though? Let's check the specs.

The Power:

Running at 300 MHz with 32MB of RAM, the PS2 outperforms the Dreamcast but falls behind the Gamecube and the Xbox. The DVD ability is a bonus but it needs more power to compete with the newer consoles.

Rating: 3

The Games:

The PS2 has been out for a while and has some serious games. Heavyweight titles like Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec and SSX are rocking our world while we wait for Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Final Fantasy X to come out at the end of 2001/beginning of 2002. Being able to play old Playstation games gives the PS2 a huge selection of titles - more than enough to compete with the new consoles when they hit stores.

Rating: 4

The Price:

The Playstation 2 has been out since November and it's still clocking in at $300 US a pop. If it doesn't drop down a chunk when the Gamecube and Xbox come out, it's gonna lose out on some sales.

Rating: 3

The Final Word:

The PS2 is more than just a game machine. With the ability to play DVDs you can watch your fave movies when you aren't gaming your thumbs off. If it had more power it'd be a stronger competitor.

Final Rating: 3

So far we've looked at the Dreamcast and Gamecube, with the Playstation 2 checked out that leaves the Xbox for next week. Check back and see how the big black box does against the rest of the competition.
