    for 12 year old...ps2....more games...and more games "appropriate" for his age range...(my gawd...i sound like an old man...hehe)

    ps/2 plays dvds without having to pay an extra 40 buck or whatever it is ...plus is compatible with all ps1 games...

    i'd even look at a gamecube...for a 12 y/o...ya know...those pokemons..mario and zelda...

    again..ps2 is best ...plays dvd's outta the box...without the extra cost attachment...and hey/....you can get linux for ps2 soon...

    Game Console

    I would personally go with a PS2, because as zigar said, it plays DVD's right out of ze box.. Xbox requires a special add on. It also depends on what you want the system for. If you are looking for a system that has games more for the mature, diehard gamer, the Xbox is the way to go. If your recipient is not a die-hard gamer, but still wants performance, the PS2 is once more the way to go. If performance at its best is what you are looking for, then the XBox is for you, with its 700mhz processor, and it superior graphis capabilities. But on the downside (in the case of a 12 year old) most of its few games out there are made for the older gamer who spends a lot of time playing games, which is actually Microsoft's target audience.

    PS2 all the way. I like the graphics better, it runs nicer and has alot more games. another thing is x-box is made by microsoft, and i don't trust it. besides, i have seen my friends x box crash more then once. i have never seen ps2 have any probs (ps1 yes, ps2 no) so there you go

    Graphics resolution:

    XBOX: 1920x1080

    PS2: 640x480

    Processing power:

    XBOX: Pentium III 733MHz, 233MHz nVidea graphics processor, DirectX8.

    PS2: 294,912MHz

    Pheripherals:

    XBOX: Standard: 4 controllers, 8GB HDD, 10/100 ethernetadapter, Hardware supported Dolby Digital 5.1 (256 channels) High Definition Television-support for games +DVD,

    PS2: Standard: two controllers, DVD (Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS) (48 channels), two USB-ports (12MB/s), IEEE1394 (iLink)-port (400MB/s).
    Optional: Online gaming: HDD+Nic; Linux Kit: 40GB HDD, 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX Ethernet card, USB keyboard, mouse, and VGA AV-connection.

    My opinion: The XBox beats the PS2 if we're talking about prestations/quality, no doubt about it. PS2 though is much cheaper, and there are more games available...

    I'll recommend the XBOX - I haven't played it nor seen it in the flesh, but I've heard it's quite good - not as much games as PS2, but I'm sure they'll be coming out exponentially!!
