    I've been told that both can be chipped for DivX capabilities.
    If so, which gives the better reproduction ?

    Xbox wouldnt really need to be chipped as such since it is just a PC :)
    So as much as I like the PS2 Id have to say the Xbox would be the way to

    Did my XBox but havent' seen a PS2 play DivX yet. I would imagine it
    will play as well as your DivX resolution, i.e. higher your frame
    size, better the playback. It plays OK on mine and I've got it set to
    a size that will fit on a 700MB CDR.
    How 'true' does the reproduction need to be?

    There is an addon you get for the PS2 that lets it play DivX over a
    network. I don't think it needs to be chipped to use either.

    There's a team based in the United States called BroadQ who make a product
    which enables you to play DivX movies on your Playstation 2. Here is a link:


    It's called the Q-Cast Tuner, or something like that.
