Every hardware or software for the xbox will hard and pricey to get, as there are very few units around. Remember that.
" PS2 is easy to find in stores. XBox has been discontinued so you would have to go through online stores for used units. PS2 is just a better system, however, be sure to take note what kind of games you like. As each game plays to each system's strengths and weaknesses. "
The original Xbox is the most boring home console I have ever owned, by a long margin. As a console it is even more boring than the PSP and that says a lot. Take out PGR and Forza and couple of WRPG and it had nothing that got me playing any length of time. The PS2 was WAY better for variety and goodness.
I say, get a Wii and go the Gamecube games, plus some Wii action. Clearly everyone hates the Wii, so if it gets stolen, no-one cares :/
