go with the 360.  even if the PS3 is a great system, they really don't have good enough games for it in my opinion.  a good majority of the great games are exclusively for the 360.

coming soon, Gears Of War 2. enough said.

you guys are high. my ps3 that is currently infront of me not only plays ps1 and 2 games but get this, ps3 games too. games play cleaner, onlines free, and it plays blu ray. if you dont know how good that is then you shouldnt be near a tv in the first place. http://www.blu-ray.com/ just look how much a blu ray player is alone. plus fully flared blu ray is going to blow your junk off. microsoft should stick to making shitty operating systems and quiet ways of monitoring you for the government.

get a 360, online is way better (who cares if you have to pay, its like 50 bucks a year) the graphics are the same if not better in my opinion, the games are WAY better, its cheaper, and yes gears of war 2 alone is a good enough reason to buy a 360

PS3 cause of the Blu-Ray and Gran Turismo 5. Other than that they're pretty similar to me.

It really depends on what you want out of it. All the games I have, I could have gotten on ps3, but I spend at least 80% of the time playing online. all my friends have the 360, so at any given time i can jump on and shoot the shit with them while doing three flips in skate, or sniping dudes on cod4. so, just for the online play with my friends, the 360 was a better choice for me.

I've had both but eventually sold my 360 because of the whole red ring of death issue.  It died on me twice and I wasn't down with having to always get it fixed.  They each have their fair set of exclusives so you really have to look into it and see which games you prefer.  I will give the 360 the online crown at the moment though, its the one thing I really miss about it.

360 wins big time. Microsoft kind of got fucked in the ass by the HD-DVD and blu-ray battle, but that's about it. Supposedly the PS3 has greater capabilities, but from what I've seen from the one friend who has PS3, 360 graphics are usually on par or better. While you do have to pay for Xbox Live, it's way better than the PSN stuff. 360 also seems to have better games, except MGS and FF, which might change things a little bit. Finally, wayy more people have 360. I've got 4-5 friends that I can play call of duty 4 with regularly, and half the fun is making jokes and talking shit with your friends. I've got like 25 friends on my list for 360, but only know 2 or 3 people that even have a PS3.

PS3....  you dont get the benefit of online play (makes no difference to me esp since i live in asia) but you get Metal Gear Solid 4.....

MGS4 is enough reason IMO....

I prefer PS3. if you like shooters & playing online get 360. PS3 does about everything else better & will last you longer. MGS4, Killzone 2, Resistance 2, playstation home...i just prefer the system in every way online doesn't give me the satisfaction of a good single player campaign(MGS4 etc).

Assuming you'll be doing any online playing whatsoever, just buy the one that most of your friends have.
There's really not all that much between them, but if you have friends to play online with, I'd lean toward the 360. PS3 is solid cause of Blu-Ray and some of the shit they've got coming out (if you're into the new Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy), but for the most part you're getting the same games on both. I've got a 360, I'm satisfied with it. I haven't had a problem and I've had it for just about 2 years I think now. I also know people who are stoked on their PS3s. I will say the most rewarding shit is playing online with friends, and it's been super convenient on Xbox Live.

360's online is way better, but the actual system is a piece of shit. I've had to send mine back once because of red ring of death, and I know a guy that it happened to 3 times so far.

Other than i guess it just comes down to what kind of games you like and if you play multiplayer or not.

why would sony loose money on every ps3 made?

because they are going to make a shit load in licensing once people can start figuring out how to program for it at its max capacity.

its just around the corner. ps3 in the long run is a much much better investment.

I love my 360 very much but I do want a PS3.  I'm gonna wait till like next year though, wait for a price drop.  BTW if you're thinking about getting a 260 wait a few more days, they're about to drop the price

And then theres your Xbox 270 to noseblunt, Lutzka Edition. It cheers for itself when you beat a game, and is shaped like a fedora.

I hear the Xbox is going down to $299.99 and the PS3 isn't dropping anytime soon, if I'm correct.

I bought mine last week too, and I went into Best Buy with the newspaper ad that had the $299 price, and they gave me $54 back.

I bought my PS3 last year at some asinine price of 700$, it was a 60 gig and it had just come out though, when I saw it was 399 a few months later I died a little


On a more serious note.

I have an xbox 360 (the cheap arcade version, it was only like $260) and I've only had if for 6 months and it's already giving me problems, and I don't even play that much.   BUt yeah, if I play a game for more than 3 hours, it starts to scratch the disk.  Plus everyone I know has had the red ring of death.    If you are into online play (I'm not) then Xbox for sure.   But I think in the long run, the ps3 will stand the test of time much better then the xbox.     However, I don't know a single person with a ps3, everyone has xbox.

I haven't got loyalty to any company.

I just don't want to spend a bunch of money on a console which only had one game I was interested in.
