Now, when you say XBox, do you mean the 360 or the old one?

Mammary cards? Why would I need them? I dont want to take photos or record video with my gaming machine. For that I have my photophile-videophile quality Sony Ericsson W550i with 256MB on board, for Gawd's sakes!

1. By Xbox, i meant the old Xbox, not 360. However if you have the budget (around 20k), Xbox 360 is anyday better than PS2/Xbox.

2. Memory card. Well you need that to save games. Wont you save your games or just play level one all the time? In PS2, you gotta have external memory cards to save games (original Sony ones cost about 800 bucks for an 8MB card). There are many fakes in the market, and i myself ended up having fake ones. So total maximum memory you can have with genuine memory cards is just 16 MB (2 slots in PS2 slim). On the other hand, with Xbox, you have an 8GB internal Hard-disk, enough to store all saved games you are goning to play in your lifetime, and even more, like movies, MP3s etc, no jhanjhat of memory cards. For playing movies and mp3s, (divx/avi/dvds/mp3s), you require a software to be installed. The dealer can do it for you for about 100-200 bucks. I tried to do it myself, ended up screwing up my Xbox. :( I guess i was unlucky, and i think these days modded Xbox comes preinstalled with the software.

If not then how much is PS2 slim with B&W? Around 15K I think, not sure. Confirm at the nearest Sony dealer.
And how much is the original PS2 controller for? Again no idea, guaranteed original from Palika is around 600.

And what is the Use of Modchip in PS2? Allows you to play Pirated games which can be bought at around 50-75 bucks a piece.

I have heard warranty goes boom boom after modchip work?? Yes it does.

It's needed to store your progress in Games. Like when you go from Dork to Nerd in Street Fight Ultimate

No, PS2 only accepts 8mb proprietary Sony Memory cards. 2 of these are usually more than what people need.

You are right. A decent config PC with a 19" wide LCD & you can play all the games you want.

P.S. I am still stuck with my PS1

Then again thats the official price. Im sure you can get it at Alfa or Palika Bazaar for much less. Even when the ps2 was launched India, Alfa sold it for much less..

Microsoft on the other hand have really priced their Xbox well. Its jsut around 1-2k more than in America and it makes sence to buy it from here for the bill and warranty.
