I want a gaming console bad. I want a PS3 so bad, but my plan to get it by next month seems to be fading fast rite now. I might be able to still get it, but its still expensive.

So my question is.

Should I get a PS3 that's expensive and reliable?

Or should I get a Xbox 360 that's way cheaper, but not as reliable?

Everyone opinion is very important. Thank you.

ps3! Don't listen to these 360 fanboys. You will regret buying an xbox 360 over the next few months. So many new things are coming to the ps3 that will make sony the top dog once again.

Get a 360 Knicks. It has a much better community system than the PS3. The friends system and messaging system is great, also achievements! Oh how addicting achievements are.

I have no problem with the 360 except for the RROD. Microsoft say they fixed it, but I know some people who got a 360 in the last month or so and already got the RROD.

Id say get the 360. There's alot of good games coming out and theres plenty of good ones already released. Im pretty sure they still have the 3year warranty thing so if yours breaks down you can always send it in.

honestly, the 360 doesn't die fast. My PS3 disc drive broke in two months (I got a replacement in 1 month) and my 360 is a launch. I bought a new 360 a few months back and no red light to date. You just have to know how to keep it safe. Place it somewhere where it can get the right ventilation. Also, the 360 will be dominating gaming for the next couple of months (until early 09). The PS3 took two years to build up steam. The 360 is better now

I'd say get a cheap reliable 360. They are selling them new at the lowest price of $199

The sad thing about the RROD is that Microsoft knew about it before realising the consoles, but they wanted money so they said F the buyers they get the systems and we get our money.

I'm gonna see what happens in th enext 2 weeks. I'm hoping to get a PS3, if not I can settle for the 360.

XBox 360 is plenty reliable, and it's just as good as the PS3, if not better. The 360 was way ahead of its time, really. PS3 is basically a PC in console form, which is great if you don't already own a computer... which you obviously do. Sure, there are some cool looking PS3 exclusives, but the 360 has had a great game roster with no indications of slowing down.

PS3 is overpriced and overhyped.

Actually I saw a video on youtube breaking down the PS3 and 360 and the PS3 is way faster and stronger from what it uses. And the 360 is more like a pc from what a I saw in the video compared to the PS3.

it's me ma....
