My friend has been trying to convince me like crazy... he says the PS3 is better, the inside is better, and Xbox 360 gets "The ring of death"

Everywhere I go, everyone has an Xbox. Everyone in this forum does.

So, he's convinced me, but then, why does everyone have a 360?
I don't know what to do.

Edit: I like pie.

I understand 360 has more games, but it says everywhere that if you want a console for today, get a 360, want a console for the future, get a PS3.

360 way better graphics if you have a tube tv or are broadcasting in 420p. PS3 still hasnt immpressed me except if you have HDTV. Also the ps3 has more games for kids if you think about it. Plus the prices are totally different. The 360 you get more bang for your buck.

Honestly, I wanted a ps3 for MGS4. However, 360 is much much better. If I were to get a ps3, it would be for MGS4 and Killzone2. My opinion, get a 360, wait a while on the ps3. It has many flaws like the internet, even though its free, its crappy.

id get a 360...better online play...and thats what makes games fun atleast to me and as far as red ring of deaths go...you rarely get them anymore..unless you had one of the original systems that came out

Xbox 360 has way superior online play. Why would you buy a PS3? You wouldn't really have any ability to play online with your friend? Their online is terrible...

Gears of War
Halo
Call of Duty (live)
Shadowrun
Madden (live)
Guitar Hero/Rockband (live) and downloadable content

The 360 is also going to be compatible with netflix if you have netflix you can get frees movies whenever you want.

Oh and here's another good reason. I have a 360.

Join me in the revolution! PS3 is the way to go! I'd say the games coming out ths year and next will beat 360 hands down....sure they've got GoW2 coming, but what else?

Ps3 has got coming:
killzone 2
gran turismo 5
Resistance FoM 2
final fantasy 13 (only for fanboys i guess)

There's 4 i rattled off in a matte rof seconds but there's so much more.

Plus, if you install linux on it, you have yourself a computer, and if you think the hard drive isnt big enough? buy a bigger one, you can get a 300Gb hard drive ps3 PC!

check out the microsoft press conference that happened yesterday, and then watch sony's conference in two days. then make your decision.

If you thought that Nintendo had won the video game console war with the spectacular success of its Wii, you may need to think again.

Sony and Microsoft, with their PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, have spent much of the past 12 months on the ropes, but are now coming out fighting. Ironically, by making gaming a legitimate entertainment activity for all the family, Nintendo may have done its competitors a good turn. Now that mum and dad are games players, too, the thinking goes, they're ready to appreciate the advantages of a technically superior console, such as the PS3 or 360.

Central to this new assault on our wallets is the idea that the next-generation games consoles are more than just toys: these are fully fledged media servers, capable of storing all your digital content, from home movies to music collections, digital photographs and downloads, and then playing them back to you on your TV. The games are now a bonus, not the core feature.

“The PS3 is the best designed and prepared for the digital networked future,” says Sony spokesman Jonathan Fargher.

“The product we launched three years ago is a different product today,” says Neil Thompson, Microsoft's Senior Regional Director for Northern Europe.

Who's right, and can their machines make your life better?

SONY PLAYSTATION 3

The basics

There is now only one version of the PS3 on sale in the UK. It costs around £300, contains a 40GB hard drive and can connect with or without wires to the internet. The machine has USB ports for connecting external devices such as cameras, MP3 players and hard drives.

What it does

In addition to playing PS3 games titles, the PS3 plays high-definition Blu-ray discs, as well as standard DVDs and CDs. It can play digitally stored films, music and photos, and can access these from other computers on the network. The PS3 has wireless connectivity built in, so it can connect to a wireless broadband network without additional purchases. Sony operates an online store, which is currently undergoing a major revamp. At the time of writing, its offerings are largely restricted to games.

The PS3 is the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market, and with Blu-ray having now beaten HD-DVD in the battle of the next-generation DVD formats, this capability looks like less of a potential white elephant. Sony allows more technically minded users to install a different operating system on top of the PS3's built-in system, a special version of Linux, which would effectively turn your PS3 into a PC.

The machine is also designed to integrate with Sony's handheld games console, the PSP. One particularly impressive feature is Remote Play, which allows PSP owners to access and control their PS3s from anywhere in the world via the internet.

What it will do

Sony has a crucial advantage over Microsoft in the content stakes: it is also one of the world's biggest entertainment companies. According to Fargher, the company is looking at ways to expand its store offering to include downloadable content from the likes of Sony Pictures and Sony Music. The company has also struck a deal with Sky to provide programmes for the PSP.

Later this year, the company will launch a new product called PlayTV, a digital TV tuner for the PS3. This will plug into a PS3 USB port and enable owners to watch all free to air UK TV channels and record programmes to PS3's hard drive. This will make is possible for anyone with a PSP to watch a programme in their UK homes via the internet, even if they are in Hong Kong.

XBOX 360

The basics

Microsoft's machine can be purchased in three versions, the cheapest of which (£160) comes with no hard drive. For storage of digital files, you will need either the 20GB or 120GB versions of the console (£200 or £260). The hard drives are also sold separately. All machines have USB ports to enable the connection of external devices such as cameras and MP3 players. All machines can be connected to the internet using standard ethernet cables. A wireless internet adapter is available for an additional £55.

What it does

In addition to playing Xbox 360 games, the 360 functions like any normal DVD player, and can play DVDs and CDs. When connected to the internet, it can be used to download and playback free and paid-for content, including trailers and sample games. Microsoft currently has a deal with the American film studios Warner and Paramount, and a small library of their films is available for paid download, some in high-definition. These films are supplied on a rental basis, and pricing is comparable with renting a DVD. The downloaded film remains on your console's hard drive for seven days. Once you start watching, you have 24 hours to complete viewing.

In terms of multimedia content, the Xbox 360 can read the same photo and music files as your home computer (like the PS3, it cannot read tracks bought from iTunes). “The integration between how you store and manage your content is important. In future people will want their content accessed on any device. This is the nirvana of the technology industry,” says Thompson.

What it will do

As more of us embrace a digital lifestyle, the Xbox 360 will keep pace, says Thompson. “With broadband speeds increasing exponentially over the coming 12, 24 or 36 months we will be looking to increase our offerings. Already, the number of users of our download services have exceeded all expectations and we expect that number to continue to grow.” Expect more film studios to hop on board soon, and possibly a television broadcaster or two - Thompson admits that discussions with the BBC have begun, but is cagey about long-term plans.

The first step is to ensure that you're informed of the options. By moving the battleground into the living room, Sony and Microsoft are putting themselves in direct competition with a host of rival products. Good old BT, for instance, has its Home Hub, which offers TV on demand and downloadable content, while Apple has its Apple TV, and Archos has a similar product called TV+.

The advantage that the games consoles offer is that they are often cheaper and easier to operate. If you are a technophobe, a games console is almost certainly a better choice because they were designed with the very young in mind.

I have set up both the PS3 and Xbox 360 to play music and video, wirelessly through my broadband connection, and in both cases it took seconds. Both machines play back files flawlessly, although limits on speed can mean that video occasionally stutters on both systems.

Microsoft has a reputation for not liking to play ball with its rivals but I was surprised by how well the Xbox 360 dealt with a host of file formats, including video downloaded from the internet. On this, and with external hard drives, the PS3 sometimes struggles.

On balance, for playing games and downloading and streaming content right now, I would buy an Xbox 360, plus a wireless internet adapter. However, if games didn't matter, and I wanted a Blu-ray player capable of instant wi-fi connection but whose full capabilities may not come into play for another year, then there's no contest. It has to be a PS3.

Have any of you gotten red ring?


idk now I all of a sudden want to get a PS3, I was always in for the 360.

And now they lowered the 360! I'm so confuseddd!
And also, all my friends have the PS3 that's why they want me to get it.

Get a ps3, sure it's a bit more expensive but you're paying the money for a more reliable console which will flourish over the next year!

I've had my Xbox360 for about 2 years now and I've yet to get the infamous "Red ring of death."

In my mind, PS3 is just not worth it. All the good games are Xbox360 anyway and the only one that isn't (MGS4) I can guarantee will be ported to 360 within the next year and a half. XBL and the Marketplace are better than PS3's attempt and, sure, you're not getting Blu-Ray, but do you have an HD-TV anyway?

ahhhhhh

the new 360 are less likely to get the red rings of death. and the PS3 isnt going to good right now. I mean sure there getting Resistance 2 but they just lost FFXIII which was supposed to be a PS3 exclusive. Here are the reasons to get a 360 in my opinion:


Better Games
More Games
More Exclusives
Better Online (even though you have to pay, that's how good it is)
More Exclusives
Better User Interface
prepaid point cards (sony doesn't have them yet)
and yeah, wayyyyyyyyyyy more good games

Reasons why the previous post isn't valid.


Better Games - All that stands out is GoW....halo is crassly overated.

More Games - Due to the fact it's been out longer.

More Exclusives - Again, out longer but there's soooo many amazing exclusives coming to ps3 this year

Better Online (even though you have to pay, that's how good it is) - PS3 has upgraded it's servers and network drastically, all that xbox has above it now is more players (again because it's been out longer).

More Exclusives- Said that twice?

Better User Interface - I'd strongly disagree, but this one's opinion.

prepaid point cards (sony doesn't have them yet) - This autumn playstation has them.

and yeah, wayyyyyyyyyyy more good games - Said that already....


PS3 is better for multimedia....bluray player and the ability to make it, effectively, a computer by installing linux.

If all your friends have PS3's, then maybe you should get one.
But about the RRoD, I've never gotten it and while many have, the Xbox comes with a three-year warranty from MS (though you do have to wait a while in the mail for it)

Linux will crash. And second you can access your computer easily from your 360 without the hassle of installing many programs. You only need one program.

Ps3 is the future- So get it in the future, when it will be a little less cheaper.

If you're a online gamer, best thing to get is a 360. the server is great with alot of stuff you can do with it.
if you're the type of person who likes to watch movies, get a Ps3.
both have equally the same amount of great games

360-Mass Effect, Bioshock, GTA4(better online play), CoD4(again better online play)
PS3-soul Caliber, MSG4, Restinance

W-t-f ? I am calm o.O I just used caps so i can make sure they GET it through their head :)


Appearing : It Cant. Do you realize how big MGS4 is? You'd need a Bluray disk. Unless its comes out with 20 disks LOL Then its a maybe. Even if they did, they would do some MAJOR cut backs in the game - maybe delete scenes, edit the graphics and not make it as realistic.

True. Well, At the rate I'm going, I'm getting an Xbox.
if I get top 10 on the Referral Contest, which I doubt, then I will get a PS3.

Ps3 is the future- So get it in the future, when it will be a little less cheaper.

If you're a online gamer, best thing to get is a 360. the server is great with alot of stuff you can do with it.
if you're the type of person who likes to watch movies, get a Ps3.
both have equally the same amount of great games

360-Mass Effect, Bioshock, GTA4(better online play), CoD4(again better online play)
PS3-soul Caliber, MSG4, Restinance

We have Soul Caliber too. Lmao.

Linux will crash. And second you can access your computer easily from your 360 without the hassle of installing many programs. You only need one program.

On the ps3 you need no programmes, it just installs, and no linux doesnt crash otherwise sony wouldnt recommend you do it would they.....

You basically went in and told me that my OPINION was wrong. It was an opinion and I even stated it was (in my opinion...). If I think something like lemonade is better but you like apple juice you cant tell me im wrong. Its just an opinion, you can give your own, but like a fanboy you decide to say im wrong or invalid. I called you a fanboy because im usually on the gametrailers.com forums and most of them are PS3 fanboys, so sorry if was just a habit. but really sorry im not trying to start a flame war

lol if the game came out on 360 it would probable only need 3 discs (4 discs tops) and i'd rather switch disc then have to wait 15 minutes every instillation and have it take up room on my hard-drive.

PS I have a PS3, I like it but im more of an online player so I stick with 360 more. And until late this year the only games im looking foward to are Resistance 2. Then im going to have to wait until the beginning of next year for Killzone 2 and God of War 3

Lost Odyssey was on 4 disks on 360, they could easily put MGS4 on multiple disks.

Hell, they did it with Twin Snakes on GCN.

360 way better graphics if you have a tube tv or are broadcasting in 420p. PS3 still hasnt immpressed me except if you have HDTV. Also the ps3 has more games for kids if you think about it. Plus the prices are totally different. The 360 you get more bang for your buck.

actually if u add up all the crap u have to buy then i would say the xbox is more expensive than the ps3
and whoever said that mgs4 is going to the xbox then ur wrong, if u actually played mgs4 it says that its "PS3 EXCLUSIVE"
And i actually have an xbox and a ps3. I like the ps3 games more because i got tired of halo and gears of war like the second day i played it.

Why is everyone saying the only good game for the 360 coming is Gears of War 2?

Fable 2
Too Human
Infinite Undiscovery
Last Remnant
Mass Effect 2
Viva Pinata 2 (Say what you want, it's a good game ... pretty much the 360 version of Pikmin)
Left 4 Dead
Plus Gears of War 2.

This isn't even including the exclusives that are already out such as Dead Rising, Lost Odyssey and Halo 3 (off the top of my head). Contrary to popular belief, Halo 3 actually IS a good shooter. Bandwagon hating popular things is not always right.

The PS3 has lost most of its big titles and at this point is certainly not worth it. The 360 has a much larger selection of games to fit all types of people, with more RPGs, more shooters, more racers and more ... everything, than its competitors.

The online support for the 360 is INFINITELY better than the Playstation Network. To say otherwise is to be completely wrong. There are many hiccups and problems in the PS network and the overall experience is drained because of it. The 360 owners may have to pay 50$ a YEAR (come on, a year) but they get what they pay for. A huge marketplace where they can download arcade games and full XBOX classic games. It's a quality service and is certainly not a rip off.

They put Lost Odyssey on 3-4 discs. They could easily do the same for MGS4. Plus, they're making it so you can download games from the disc straight to your HD from the 360. So ... yeah, it can definitely work.

I would go with a PS3 because its a more reliable console. After all the research I done, Xbox 360 has too many problems and it has alot higher return rate.

I'm gonna be saving for a 60GB Model PS3 (even tho sony discontinued them) the 60GB models are the only ones that have true backwards compatibility with PS2 games. So that gives me more of a variety of games to play on it.

MGS4 will never reach the cockbox bricksixty...

There are lots of in-game jokes suggesting that this game will NEVER get ported. One of these is the exchange disk scene.

And, waiting a year and a half just for a port that doesn't even exists? hahaha...You xbots are funny.

And, to all you xbots, have you even seen, played, or owned a PS3 to tell someone that it sucks? I believe the PS3 has a good number of exclusives coming to it. Some of this are: Killzone 2, Resistance 2, God of War III,LittleBigPlanet, inFamous, Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty, Final Fantasy Versus XIII (I doubt it will be multiplatform), DC universe online and MAG(256 players) and more.


I'm pretty sure Final Fantasy Versus XIII, unlike the other FFXIII, won't go multiplatform. Some of the reasons as to why I believe it will never reach the bricksixty are: Game uses sixaxis, Devteam stated game would not fit on a DVD format, and PS3's power(not sure about this one)

I bet you dont own a Xbox 360 or you haven't owned one for long. Here's a list of games that are worth playing and have scored well on Xbox 360:
Gears of War
Bioshock
Halo 3
Ninja Gaiden 2
Call of Duty 2
Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action
Naruto: Rise of a Ninja
Chromehounds
Saints Row
Blue Dragon
Dead or Alive 4
Crackdown
Dead Rising
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Hitman Blood Money
The Outfit
Perfect Dark Zero
Soul Calibur (XBLA)
Geometry Wars Evolved (XBLA)

You will never be able to name as many exclusives as these (Hitman came out on other consoles but looked real good on my 360) and if you do they will be low rated games like Lair (53 Average) and Genji (55 Average) or Heavenly Sword (repetitive but it was pretty good)

Because i said WITHIN the next yeartheres so much good stuff coming soon, within the next 1 or 2 months at most. I had the choice of the ps3 or xbox360, i walked straight past the latter to go for a ps3.

Reasons why you should get PS3:

LittleBigPlanet (October this year) - Meh, kinda pathetic TBH
Killzone 2 (February 2009) - Killzone 1 sucked!
inFamous - o.0
DC universe Online - o.0
Warhawk (released) - kinda boring
White Knight Chronicles - never heard of it
MAG - 0.o yay 256 players all at once!!! (Sarcasm)
Final Fantasy Versus XIII - Yeh I agree on that one
God of War III - Seen the other God's of war...they were good
Grand Turismo 5 Prologue(released) - WTF No damage??? Worst thing to release!
(Gran Turismo TV will be released on August) - Saming
Metal Gear Solid 4 - Good
Ratchet and Clank Future - Good
Resistance 1 and 2 - Resistance sucked and is way too easy!!!
Playstation Store games - WTF You want xbox 360 for that...we have all the classic arcades!!!
HOME - WTF, just a place for pedo's
Ninja Gaiden Sigma - Good
Uncharted - Looks pathetic
60gb(?) PS3 price drop to $499 - :O

Well thats my opinion..and im entitled to my own opinion!

Also I do honestly think that there are some crap games coming out for the PS3, the only decent ones are the sequel's to the previously decent games...and they probs will screw them up and ruin the whole series!!!

Have you actually seen LBP? I guess games are now defined as either FPS or FPS. If you still believe LBP is lame, go look at the impressions from IGN.
Does it mean that if Killzone 1 sucked, Killzone 2 needs to suck also?
Killzone 2 graphics and impressions: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/891/891245p1.html
inFamous is a Grand Theft Auto like game but, you play as someone who gained powers and It's up to you if you want to be good or evil.
Impressions: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/891/891360p1.html
DC Universe Online is a FREE MMO game featuring DC superheroes and villains such as Superman, batman, and their enemies like the Joker.
WarHawk is a good multiplayer game (It has no single-player campaign).
I believe MAG can hold up to its promise of 256 players. I've been playing Resistance on a slow internet connection and I haven't noticed a single lag even on 40 players.
I think Versus 13 wil remain exclusive since they announced motion controls and they stated that it wil not fit on a single DVD disc.
White Knight Chronicles is a RPG.
GoW 3...no need to explain.
Gran Turismo Prologue - they've announced a patch for damage.
Gran Turismo TV is a service that will allow you to watch different shows like Top Gear on your PS3 (only available thru GT prologue).
MGS4 - one of the best games around.
Ratchet and Clank - one of the best games for the PS3.
Resistance was actually good. And, Resis tance 2 looks even more promising.
PS store games - pixeljunk monster, grand turismo prologue, warhawk, pain, super stardust, flow, and more. They also have PSP games and PSone titles.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma - good game
Uncharted - actually looks good (one of the best looking titles).
HOME - I don't have much details on this one but what I do know is that this service is FREE of charge.
Price drop was announced in E3. They will also now sell 80gb systems($600). I believe there was no 80gb PS3 before. I'm sorry if I'm wrong.

And, crap games cannot be avoided. Even some highly hyped games tend to flop *stares at HAZE*

Exactly...if your a retard and move the console from vertical to horizontal while the disk is in and spinning, then obvs its gonna scratch...ever heard of gravity??? jeez, and I wish the sony fanboys would stop going on about having the internet and linux on their PS3, its a gaming console, made for gaming, if you want linux or the internet, then use your PC FFS. Xbox 360 doesnt have all them "PC" features...
guess why
...why?
Because its a gaming console
:O No!!!
Yes

Seriously guys, if I could, I would have a PS3 for my birthday, but I dont want to, because I need to spend that precious money on my beloved 360! You think if it kept over heating, I had to £40 a year to play online...well I cant really think of any other bad things??? Well mine has NEVER over heated and I got mine on lauch day! What is £40 a year???£40 a year!!! its nothing!
Anyway, you really think I would still continue to spend my money on it if it did that!!! Then no, but because mine doesnt overheat, and if it does we have a 3 year warranty on it! and £40 a year is nothing, its like having a game at christmas! I still do spend my well earned cash on my 360! I love playing it! Never stopped playing it, only for going on holiday, when I used to go school, and sleep, any free time I would either spend going out with mates, but because this is england, it rains all the time, so what else to do...PC Is boring, so :O 360 yay :)

Seriously...360 is really good for its age and how technology has moved on and its still able to compete with all these high-tech software/hardware!

I found this on another forum, may help with deciding between consoles

http://www.lockergnome.com/game/2008/03/05/xbox-360-vs-ps3-the-great-debate/

PS3

Pros:

* Beats 360 in month-by-month sales
* Free wireless, built-in Blu-ray, and free online play via the PlayStation Network
* Internet broswer
* Blu-ray won the format war
* ALL games are on Blu-ray discs (that’s a whopping 50 Gigs per disc!), allowing great games to be born!
* VERY low failure rate
* Great connectivity between the PS3, the PSP, and the computer
* VERY quiet fan
* Small, light controllers
* Sixaxis wireless controller for certain games

Cons:

* Few great games, but plenty of great games coming soon
* Not as many people on the PSN compared to XBL
* Demos, add-ons, and such are on the PSN after the XBL Marketplace
* Some (very few) PS3s have disc drive problems that don’t read the discs properly or will not accept the discs at all
* No rumble controllers (but seriously it’s not that important); also, the rumble controllers have been announced

Xbox 360

Pros:

* XBL has many people and a great connection
* You can own noobs online while listening to your favorite music!
* Beats PS3 in overall sales due to the fact that it was released over a year before the PS3
* Great games
* Demos, add-ons, and such are on the XBL Marketplace before the PS3
* Rumble in controllers

Cons:

* WAY too many callbacks and problems (RRoD, destroying of discs, etc.)
* If you bought everything to as closely match the features of the PS3 it’d cost almost the price of the sytem itself (HD DVD drive, wireless hook-up, XBL payments) — these things add up!
* No Internet browser
* HD DVD lost the format war
* All games are on regular DVD discs (a measly 5 Gigs of memory), which greatly limits games
* WAY too high of a failure rate — about 17%, in fact
* Large, heavy, roaring jet engine fans!

That's why you make sure the torrent has a lot of seeders and comments. Then you read the comments to see if it's good.

You KNOW you won't watch the movie more than once. Why pay 30 dollars? If it makes you feel any better, go down to Chinatown and buy one for $2.00 there.

I've decided to get a PS3 for 2 big reasons:

1. More reliable console (way less failures)

2. Free Online Play

Also the least ammount of great games that PS3 has is not a concern to me, I just want the good exclusive ones like Gran Turismo 5 for example. As far as the xbox 360 is concerned, most of its games are available on PC, and my PC is good enough to run them, so its pointless for me to buy that.

How about neither system sucks and anyone who says so is just being ignorant? Both systems have excellent games and both systems have excellent hardware, the PS3 just decided to focus more on nongaming hardware than the 360.

It's funny though -- someone pointed this out to me. Last generation, XBOX owners were saying how the XBOX had superior hardware (because it did) than the PS2. The PS2 owners were saying how it's all about the gaming library, so the PS2 was better.

This generation, it's the exact opposite. Suddenly the PS3 is better because of more advanced hardware and the 360 is better because of a better overall library.

Its harder to develop games for the PS3 because its such new technology not alot of developers know how to work it.. but the 360 from what i hear is just like the PC so its easier to port it over to the 360 then the PS3.. Thats why the PS3 doesnt have many games because developers out there dont have a clue how to develop a game for the PS3. Honestly what games does the PS3 have RIGHT NOW.. im not talking in a year like OMG little big planet is coming out its gonna be AWESOME how do you know a game is AWESOME if its not even OUT YET. The only game that ever comes to mind when i think PS3 is MGS4 and Resistance since im not into racing games Gran Turismo is nothing to me. The xbox has tons of great titles that attract me like Gears of war Halo 3 Mass Effect Bioshock and i can pick those up right now.. the 360 also has better online play.. i love TF2 (Team Fortress 2) on Xbox Live but on the PS3 no one ever talks (or has a mic for that matter) and not as many people are on it.. 360 games are just more FUN with its epic online play.. and im sick of people saying LAIR is awesome that game was an EPIC FAIL! Haze idk about that game mixed reviews.. doesnt seem like my type of game anyway.. PS3 fans are probably just satisfied with it because its the only game thats even mildy fun on the PS3.. i do like the PS3's technology it blows the 360 out of the water.. but for gaming it just doesnt cut it.. if im going to buy a console i expect a great gaming experience if i wanted an internet browser a Blu ray player and a console that can play lots of formats and stream files over wifi really well i would just buy a PC.. after all thats what PC'S are made for. So my input to this little thread is the PS3'S is going to open doors for next gen gaming but the lack of fun online just doesnt make it fun.. (Plus its SLOW) me and my friend tried to update MGS took like 5 or 7 mins pop in a game on a 360 20 seconds MAX update. The xbox 360 is for more hardcore gamers.. gamers that stay up till like 3 am button mashing and having those BOOM HEADSHOT moments with all your best friends.. Well thats about all i have to say if anyone ever wants to argue PS3 VS 360 just message me i love to debate on the issue of which console is better.

I posted that in another thread.. and another reason you should get 360 is because i have one so we could play together Johnny boyyy .. FYI im not a child stalker or flaming *YOU KNOW* person.

the only reason to get a PS3 is for MGS4 and to use it as Blu-ray player. otherwise 360 has WAYYY better games: Halo 3, Gears of War 1 & 2 (when its released), and the online experience is way better (even though xbox live costs a fee, and PS Network is free, $50 for a year is totally worth it). i bet ANY money that MGS4 will find its way to 360. Look at MGS2, it came out for xbox after it was on PS2 and it was a better version, so much so that they had to release the same version on ps2 so that sony fanboys wouldn't cry. I'm a converted sony fanboy. I used to like sony better then ms, but now its the other way around.

Look at ps3 and how much its trying to be like xbox 360, the trophies are blatent rip offs of achievements, and the PS3 Home is taking so long to come out. MS has the Party mode coming with the Fall 08 update and you're gonna be able to watch a movie with someone across the country and play games that award more than leaderboard ranks, real prizes. Until MS is ready to release their new system, 360 is the way to go.

360 also supports almost all the original xbox games, you gotta buy the high end ps3 to be backwards compatible. There are still some AWESOME xbox titles which work on 360 with a small update download and some PS2 titles, but guess what, you gotta buy the $600 PS3 to play those titles.. sad really because the Grand Theft Auto series (or the trilogy pack) would be a good buy. I guess MS cares more about their gamers than sony.. (Ironic really when you look at their operating systems.)

another thing about PS3 online.. Think about this guys WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU GOT SOMETHING FOR FREE THAT WAS ACTUALLY GOOD. think about it no one hands out free stuff even R1 you have to do surveys or get refs to get points. So nothing free in live is of good quality

I strongly recommend the ps3

while the xbox says theirs alot of interaction and online gameplay
it really isn't a big difference

360 fans exaggerate.. ALOT.

get a ps3, i bet you'll throw away your 360's

ps3 is more reliable and has the best graphics you'll see, considering you have an HDTV, like me.

Don't listen to these people saying to get 360's cause of this and that, the ps3 beats the 360 out of superiority in every way.

So it has games, so what? Ps3 has games too
360 has popular reviews, so what? everyone has a 360 cause it's cheap but wait a year people'll trade their 360's for ps3's. I own a ps3, and my cousin owned a 360 and trust me my ps3 breaks his 360's kneecaps anyday. Missing out on halo / GoW, so what? they are just sht games anyway. they're getting ffxiii? so what we'll have it too, except A LOT better graphics then theirs.


you want realistic gameplay that's worth a lot over the 360's noob graphics, get the ps3. and people are saying 360 is worth more the money, hell no, the ps3 is worth more bang for it's buck. See, 360 can't handle ****, microsoft can't make gaming consoles successful, they have so many drawbacks, errors, and overall stupid hardware problems.

ps3? none. it's perfect. Sony > Microsoft in gaming consoles.

As do i, if you compare hardware, ps3 beats xbox hands down, meaning there is more potential you'll see being released in the next few months. So what if 360 has better online? It's been out longer (more players) and it's cheaper....

PS3 will come on leaps and bounds and turn from what is already a truly great console into a powerful gaming machine.

Right...

Firstly there is a huge difference in online gameplay - mainly due to the interaction between players and the way microsoft have made it easy to understand - i.e not over complicated

Secondly we dont exaggerate A LOT - well, most of us anyway

PS3 is more reliable? well 360 hs RRoD but i'll ask you - who here has a ps2 that still works? anyone?

Thirdly 'beats the 360 out of superiority in every way.' hmm, i already said the online is better and there is a wider range of games on the 360... soo?

Fourthly the graphics on 360 are much the same, if not exactly, the same as the PS3s graphics... so i dont know where you're getting those ideas from.
For example GTAIV exactly the same on both consoles.

And lastly i'll return to the previous generation of consoles - so more people had a ps2 at the time, but i'll bet theres twice as many working Xboxs out there than ps2s - also Xbox original had better games and was the first console with the built in harddrive idea which turned out to actually be the step forward - didn't it!?

so yeah, basically....

Also, going on about SAULiO91 repsonse to graphics...the PS3 has Blu-Ray disk, which can hold up to 50GB!!!! The Xbox 360 has a satandard DVD disk, which maximum is 7.9Gb, And they manage to get the same graphics!!! WTF?? How stupid...its like they have wasted like an extra 40Gb on what??? Slow updates XD

Alright im just going to post my full opinion here. I own both a Ps3 and 360. Here it goes:

I strongly suggest you get a 360. Not only does it have more games but it also has better online. I suggest trying it out before saying 360 owners exaggerate. Yes I understand it came out a year before. So what? So did the PS2 and the Sony Fanboys were all happy the PS2 beat the Xbox. And the PS3 does not produce better graphics all the time. The PS3 produces better graphics but mainly for its exclusives (Uncharted). But the 360 can do the same. The first real next gen game came out November 2006, Gears of War. While the PS3 was launching more people (magazines) were talking about how life like Gears looked. And it didn't have to install every chapter. Also, the PS3 has bluray and 50gb for every games. This is a great feature for PS3 gamers, but it isn't being used to produce as many high quality games as they could. And the 360 does get more exclusives. Oh and here are a couple reasons why online is better just to prove to you:

14 million users (duh)
Friends (private chat, game invites, video chat)
Achievements (people like to look at each others accomplishments)
Xbox Live Marketplace (Arcade, Microsoft Points, Movies, TV Shows, Gamer Pics, Demos, Add-ons)
Very easy to get started with friends and everything!
More games to play with more players basically

Yes, I know the PS3 will be getting most of this (except 14 or so million users, well not very soon) but the Xbox 360 is going to be getting an update this fall (netflix, more kid friendly games, more XBLA games, new easier dashboard and alot more)

The first week I couldn't get enough of my PS3, but after beating Uncharted, Ratchet, Heavenly Sword and Resistance I almost forgot about it. Then I got MGS 4, the story was incredible but it was like watching a movie (the cut scenes took forever) which is not a bad thing. But the story (gameplay wise) can be beaten in 5 to 7 hours (my brother beat it several times) the first time it took him around 10 (around the same it took me). And now my PS3 is picking up dust again.

The 360 is overall better for now, but since it did get ahead start it will be most likely stay a foot ahead of the PS3 for a long time.

yeah but your just one person. im sure other people have had problems in the past, my cousins PSP broke a couple months ago. My PS3 broke a couple months ago too but they sent me a replacement. A lot of people have problems with consoles, no consoles are built unbreakable. Some break for no reason (like my PS3) and some just freeze up (like my Xbox 360).

ps3 is indeed the better console which is the 1 that i have, also have the gtaiv on the 1st day
this game is pretty bull^^^^ anyway, i completed the missions and thats it, nothing else to do, isnt worth buying gtaiv

considering that i woke up in the morning of release at 6 o clock british time and when out and paid 45 quid!!!! for a peice of crap of a game, its all in the advertisements. its been hyped up for nearly 2 years by every gaming site on the planet. reading review after review. i was really pissed off after 2 weeks playing that game and thought to myself i am never gonna buy a game looking at its advertisements.
Nowadays, everytime i want to buy a game i do not buy them after reading a review, i think about what the game is about and would it keep me involved for quiet a while

Well I was previously a PS only kind of person. Kind of snobby with the "Xbox is copying by making another game system that does the same exact thing as my PS2" Then it came down to it. The new generation lines. Xbox 360 vs PS3. Both looked pretty equal so I said "Ok, what's the prices." $359 vs $599. Hmm. Let's see. They both do the same thing...which is allow me to play games.... One number is bigger than the other... Xbox 360 won.

comrade, I completely agree with you! I am trading it in soon, as I speak! Trying to get a full value on what I got it for...it sucks! I did the first part of the storyline, drive the guy someplace, then I couldn't find where to go next. Hours driving around the city, shooting pedestrians and whatnot, NOT WORTH IT. I am trading it in for Fable 2, which is the kind of games that I DO like. (Also, on Xbox Live, GTAIV had too many little kids saying the 'N' word. Being a non- "average" African-American, I let it slide many times with out saying a word.) Until this one kid said it after every other word, while we were racing -.-. Like the adult I am, I cursed him out and shut off my Xbox 360 before I had a chance to throw it across the room. I am sticking to what I like. Good ol' fashion RPGs. It is where "my" people are =). I love RPG communities :D

I briefly read through this topic and didn't see too many valid points that didn't have a hint of fan boy in them (there were some good points made though).

I own a Ps3 and a 360 (along with a wii) and i would reccomend buying the 360 really without a doubt. Most games that are out for the ps3 are all multi platforms that you can purchase on the 360 (assassins creed, Oblivion, call of duty 4, Battlefield bad company etc..). What sets the consoles apart is definately the exclusives and the online.

The PS3 IS getting exclusives, but if you went to the store right now would you be able to purchase a good line up of exclusives, not particularly (ratchet and clank, drakes fortune, mgs4.) All the Games that will help the PS3 are coming in the near future, but if you went to the store and bought a 360 you would get way more play time and value out of it with a great line up of games. The 360s future is looking very nice with some great exclusives such as Banjo and Kazooie: Nuts N' Bolts, Fable 2, Fallout 3 (content wise it was annoucened to have a huge amount for the 360 only), Gears of war 2 (i'm not really going to pimp this since i'm not that much of an avid fan of the series) The new Portal game etc. Seriously has no one meantioned GTA IV and the exclusive DLC that is going to add 10 more hours of play time to it?! I'm surprised since GTA IV is a great game and getting it for the 360 is the best decision all around. More exclusive titles that i haven't seen anymore meantion is the new set of RPGS coming, i'm a big fan of these and it really is pimpin' to get some of these great titles such as "tales of Vesperia, Star Ocean 4, The Last Remenant and fable 2. All coming to the 360 exclusively for now for some games and forever for others. Halo 3 is an alright game in my opinion as its just fun to play with some friends, i don't play competitively on it but i still enjoy it. Of course FFXIII is coming to the 360 as well, so another blow to the ps3's exclusive line up.

The online king is obviously the 360, its layout is great and it has new content updates every day. Online gameplay is smooth and is really built around the experience. On an 8mb connection i downloaded the blue dragon demo (1.3gig) in just under 20 minutes, it took 25 minutes for me to download the new Naruto Ultimate Ninja storm demo on PSN which is 500mb. Microsoft have built the console so it can be picked up and played with ease and no need to configure NAT settings. What i'm surprised is how people are not talking about the other factors of xbox live that are amazing! Theres new demos nearly every other day with a library of over 200 demos to download for free, along with movies, developer interviews, trailers, DLC fan content and more. The new service microsoft are offering is for new programers to upload ther games to xbox live for free download and play. The 360 has alot of online gaming options from conferences with friends to privacy settings and feedback along with voice chat and file sharing.

When looking at the games avaliable right now and the content avaliable for the xbox 360, it overtakes the PS3 by a large margin, but the PS3 is building up the pace and in the future with its exclusive titles it will be worth it, but for now it doesn't hold that much over the 360. Who cares if you pay for online pay? 5 bucks a month is nothing and your getting your moneys worth all the way.
I have had a 360 since the day it launched and it has not red ringed me once, I have another 360 (my own) which i had bought in march this year and it is running fine with no problems. Microsofts return policy is great with 3 years of cover when it can only take a week to get the 360 back, Heck with the ps3 if you put a disc in upside down it breaks the ps3 as the it will not spit out the disc, furthermore my just simply switching it off at the back without shutting it down first can break it permanatly. Sony actually charges you for to send the console back to be fixed.

Overall I highly reccomend getting an Xbox 360, picking it up now it has a great line up ready to go and gives you a much better experience than any of the other consoles, at a much cheaper price you can easily afford more games and live to get yourself gaming.

Hope this has helped...and man....that was longer than i thought it would be XD. Hope that gives some more valid points that people aren't meantiong. I have had 3 ps2s, all of thme broken ;_;. My wii thought has fallen over off th eself and table so many times but it still plays like a bish O:
