You put up a great arguement there moogle.

Besides I don't have the money for a PS3. I've 700 bucks and I'm buying a TV and a desk to put that TV on, maybe some shelves, and then a console. With some money left over to contribute to a DS Lite.

My arguement rocked, but yeah...
Hmmm, i would still go with the PS2, if your looking to save money over all its good, Nintendo is OK, not bad, but not great, and with the Ps2 you at least get backwards compatability (depends on what model tho!), DVD player, and online, if you like that kinda stuff (I don't, not for counsels, but who knows)

Sorry to tell you, but you then don't know much.

Well that complicates things a little.

I have been doing a make over of my room lately (I have a coffee table in my room... awesome), and still have some stuff to do and buy, and was considering buying a gaming console, but I also want to be able to watch DVDs without people disturbing me. I'm leaning towards the Gamecube more but I was hoping it would play DVDs, now if I did get one I have to buy a seperate DVD player.
Beleive me here when I tell you: do yourself a favor and buy yourself a separate DVD player. They are very cheap anyways.

What do you do if you want to watch DVD but you have your console up and running in a game you can't save rightaway? What about you want to go play elsewhere, how will you be able to see a DVD at your room without your console there? What will happen when you'll realise that playing DVD's on your PS2 or 3 actually damage the reading arm and that you can't do whatever you wish because the console now decide now and again not to be able to switch to the mode you want it to?

You should ask yourself those kind of questions before even considering buying a PS console just for the argument of the DVD player. Just like playing over the internet, a console is not made for doing that and you are venturing into heap of troubles for nothing while you can do easily otherwise.

Probably not many.

I don't even own it yet, but I'm looking to buy one.

There are nice DOSBox and ScummVM emulators made for it., as well as most of other 8 and 16 bit consoles/computers plus arcades. Add to this option to play media (photos, videos and MP3.

I believe its worth buying.
