What version of Soul Calibur 2 are you getting?

Personally i am all about the gamecube verision, from what i hear it has quicker load times and sharp graphics, plus Link is by far the coolest bonus if you ask me. Opinions?

If ya read the reviews, particularly Electronic Gaming Monthly, they posted a review of all three versions in one issue. According to EGM, if you have an XBox, get that version. If not, get the Gamecube version. If nothing else, get the PS2 version.

XBox version has better graphics. I know that graphics aren't everything in a videogame, but when it's the same game across three systems, why not get the one with the best graphics?

I also heard the PS2 version was buggy. I'm not into fighting games that much, and even though I own all three systems, I probably won't buy it for either of them. Oh well, just figured I'd let ya know what EGM suggests. Good luck!

Spawn turned out pretty good. I am getting the GameCube version though because i have a GC and a ps2 and a convertor to let me use the ps2 controller on the GameCube so thats great.

And the only difference between the XBox version and the GameCube version is the sound. From what i have seen, the graphics on both look pretty much identical, i would actually give the edge to the GC, but the Xbox has by far way better sound.

Any links on the bugginess of the PS2 version? As that's the only "in production" console I have, I'm wondering if it's worth upgrading from the Dreamcast version.

i have all three consoles, but i'm getting the xbox version. EGM says the graphics are the best, and the controller is perfect for playing the game.

Having played the GameCube version this weekend, there's no choice for me. It was incredible!

And if you've got the extra money, I *highly* recommend importing one of the controller arcade pads. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than any normal gamepad.

I'd love all three, but my money's on Gamecube for Link. It's the only version I've played so far, and nothing's cooler than finishing off your opponent with a fairy net or some bow and arrows.

they all looked EXACTLY like SC on DreamCast. I was disapointed they didn't bump the graphcs at all.

They bumped the graphics a lot compared to SC in my opinion. I have SC and i can see the difference.

i'm gonna end up getting it on my xbox. i'd probably get it for my ps2 but its throwing fits and having trouble reading discs. too bad i didnt have the same warranty on it that i had on my xbox. my xbox was almost 2 years old and stopped reading and the third port died. had the extended warranty on it and took it back, got a brand new one with the s-controller and paid $20 for another 2 year warranty. they were really cool about it too. forgot i wanted all my saved games. went in the next day and he let me take my old xbox back for a day so i could transfer all my games. pain in the ass though, you have to do it with a memory card. dunno why they didnt set it up so u could use system link

I'll def be getting it for the x-box. I like the controllers so much better than any other system (I use the big ones too=P ) and after playing with em for so long, I cant stand the tiny ps2/gamecube controllers.. they kill my thumb.

If I buy it, it'll definately be the GameCube version. It's hard to beat the idea of being Link in a fighting game...oh, wait, Super Smash Brothers. My bad, heh, but I still gotta play this.

I was playing online last night on XBox and meet a manager of an Electronics Boutique. She said most people are ordering the Gamecube version so they can play as Link. She said sales of Gamecubes have even picked up just to get that version.

Gamecube all the way. Being the gaming geek I am, Link sinches the deal.

Having played the game for awhile, Link is really fun to play as.. Especially when you do a vertical slash either pushing up or down (can't remember), and he does the downward sword stab straight out of Super Smash Bros. Great stuff.
