The lights are on
if you love RPG's i would perfer you get a PS3 and since you do, well you should get a ps3.
the online world i cant lie it is no where near as good as the xbox online world.
me personally i love RPG's to death. so the ps3 comes in handy you can get RPG's for the ps3 and ps2
and yes they still release great rpg titles under ps2, you just have to look.
for example im playing Mana khemia 2, and Artonlico. - GREAT GAMES!
