Games Machine

I quite fancied an xbox 360, but they are a bit expensive as I have just moved into a flat and i'm on a bit of a budget. I saw PS2 in blockbuster for £99 + 2 (pretty crap) games.

Can anyone suggest a decent games machine for a medium budget?

cheers.

    I think the Wii is alot cheaper than the PS3 and Xbox 360 but there is no "back up discs" available for modified models. (Unlike the Xbox 360)

    For value and sheer games catlougue the PS2 is still a brilliant buy IMO.

    Though personally I would deffo get an origianl 360, we all know now the graphics are better on it and has titles im more likly to play TBH, plus i preferr the controllers.

    For a budget purchase i would choose the original Xbox.

    Plenty of games, cheap, good graphics, etc...
