First of all, I am a diehard nintendo fan. I love the GC, even though I know the PS2 is good and is probably more popular. X-Box sucks and Microsoft doesn't need anymore money.

Yeah...GC does rock--in fact I am seriously planning on buying one this year due to its low price and incredible game lineup, but I still deam PS2 to be the best of the three. Then GC, then Xbox. But they are all very close, especially between GC and Xbox. GC has some great games, but if you look more closely you see that almost all of its great games are 1st party titles. Now I realize that this means that they have a great first party--which they certainly do--but tnat also means that they have a very limited 3rd party. PS2 is ridden with 3rd party titles like MGS2, GTA3, and DMC, AND it has a great 1st party (which has produced great games like Twisted Metal Black, GT3, and Jak and Daxter). Now, I also realize that their 1st party isn't nearly as good as nintendo's, but it more than evens out when you take into account the 3rd party factor.

I did not forget second party! .....I just neglected to mention it. And how can you say that PS2 doesn't have a strong second party? It's got Naughty Dog and Square--SQUARE. Sure, nintendo has Rare, but then aren't they planning on going third party? At least Square is staying a second party. And the whole FFXI thing on multiplatforms is just because its an online game and therefore needs more financial support. FFunlimited is going to GC, but no one wants unlimited--its a anime game from that crappy ff anime for christs sake! Most people would rather have 12, which is only for PS2.

They _are_ porting FFT to GBA, in case everyone's forgotten...
And Nintendo has more second parties than just Rare. There's Retro Studios, for instance (the people making Metroid Prime) and HAL Laboratories (the geniuses who came up with Kirby. Kirby rules! They also made Super Smash Bros.). I think Game Freak (the Pokémon people) might be a second party also, though they may be first party.
And as long as EAD stays first party to Nintendo, they'll never go down.

Did you make that? cuz I really want Capcom over to Nintendo's side. He would kick arse in Super Smash brothers! Think of MMX in smash bros, he could hop up walls, but have a really crappy Up+B.

Beyonder: Sure, 13 is still undecided where it'll end up, but then they haven't even started making the game....or are at least very far along. We haven't even seen screens from 12 yet. And why would Square go back to Nintendo? PS2 has sold over 40 million--almost half as much as the PS1 did in it's entire lifetime! The money is to be found on the PS2, and that's where Square wil prodominantly stay.

Megaman would be cool on SMB, but I find it unlikely. Capcom hasn't been developing too much for the GC other that PE of course, but they're even re-thinking that whole deal, and the only megamn game for Next Gen systems is on the PS2. It does look questionable tho.... I don't know if it'll be good.

square is a exclusive to sony. that will remain. 13, and all next gen ff games will be ps2 native(the ones with numbers anyway), but square is considering making a spin-off company that ports their games to gc since they are a sony second-party, they will still make exclusively sony games. this means ps2 will get them first, and they will use the ps2 hardware better. of course they will only get to gc ever if this spin-off company is succesful...otherwise, square (and nintendo)will decide to not fund them and not let them port the games anymore...that is assuming what they will be doing is ports...if not, gc will be getting ff-branded cr*p from a newly-started company...http://cube.ign.com/articles/355/355167p1.html
