I personally would go for the ps3 but both are good
You might think that the xbox 360 might be cheaper but the xtras will add up and it will end up as more.
there are more games out for the xbox 360 but most are FPS's and also the ps3 has blu ray
Your choice

ok to sort it out look at it this way:
ps3 amazing machine with potential for future, but atm not quite there escpecially with the online side of gaming and back catalogue of games and bit more expensive
xbox360 is cheaper and has the back catalogue and amazing online as well as being a good machine right now with all the new hdmi and falcon chipset. however it wont be as good as the ps3 in the long run. the ps3 has the blu ray built in which is damned fine and the 360 has a seperate hd player (but looks like blue ray will win the hd war) its more of a matter of investing. do you want to sell up now for a machine that looks and plays extremely well (360) or get 1 that has alot of cool gubbins that will make it the superior console in the future...

hope that helps

Apart from briefly owning a PS1 all my consoles and handhelds have been Nintendo. Add to that, that I've been a Mac user for the past five years I don't have loyalties to either Sony or Microsoft.

I acknowledge that the 360 currently has a superior shelf of titles yet not necessarily greater depth of games but I think that this point is over estimated for most consumers.

The fear that I have that probably most people don't admit to sharing is that I can so easily become detached from the initial excitement and for long periods just not have the time to **** away hours in front of the thing. Additionally I can't say I'm too pleased about reverting back to bog standard controls after the Wii experience. So the supplementary features that are added are important as a fail safe option.

BluRay is still in its early stages but undoubtedly start making progress now HDDVD has bite the dust. Digital downloads have a lot of hurdles to climb first. What I'm most afraid of is going to be the lack of true competition between anyone offering those services iTunes, Amazon etc will have have strict pricing policy brought on by anxious studios. I hate paying full price for any item but until its truly offered by multiple sources its not going to be the same as shopping around and picking up discounted DVDs. Inferior quality at the same cost and you may as well to rip them yourself.

So now that we have a winner of the format war if you have a HD TV you are going to want buy a BluRay player of some sort. I can't see standalone units being half the price of a PS3 this side of Christmas 2008. Does Halo, Gears, Bioshock, Alan Wake really mean you are going to be at least a two console nex gen household. For me the answer has to be no. Initial Sony adopters I think were idiots for funding their battle and making that gamble but now it makes financial sense to opt for one.

All the other minor arguments also result in victory for the PS3. Free online play is an advantage for what may just be casual needs. No PS2 compatibility non issue, never owned the previous system. The quieter the better. Reliability issues, I've heard a lot of horror stories of 360 owners and thats without taking much interest so I could do without that hassle.

depends what you want it for,

purely just gaming?! then xbox 360. soo many good games on it currently

PS3 is a more powerful machine with bulit in blu ray drive - prob better investment in the long run

Honestly. I know this isn't as detailed a response as you'd like (I'm very, very tired), but get a PS3 as you will not regret it.

Free online, built in wireless, blu-ray, bluetooth & rechargeable pads.. so much more. There are MORE than enough games OUT RIGHT NOW for it and all this talk of the 360 having a "better" selection is kinda rubbish. Erm, "bigger" maybe, it has been out a lot longer, that's obvious.

The list of PS3 games out in the next 12 months is truly disgusting (in a good way.)

I promise you, you will not regret it.

Ignore the Bluray stuff, digital content has won the "HD war" by far.
The only problem I see with NOT getting a 360 is the crashes, but IF the new chipset and heatsink have sorted this out, I would go for 360 100%

not really, the ps3 has more processor chips but it cannot effectively use these. it really has more than its ever going to use. the real comparison is down to the graphic cards and their ability to quickly process the gaming data. so far all the comparison reviews say that the xbox 360 is better at this.

so you really need to make your decision based on the fact that the ps3 had blu ray? :?

i have been reading reports that sony are going to start charging for playstation online later this year.
they are going to say that they need to do this to make it more competitive, and to fund further development

From a biased opinion (I own a 360), I would say go for a 360. This is because as mentioned earlier, the 360 has been out for longer which means more titles, but more importantly, if you're not too worried about buying 2nd hand games, earlier 360 titles can be purchased from £4-8. Some brand-new! Seems that PS3 titles are all still fairly pricey.

Although saying that, I was going to purchase the HD add-on for the 360 but now might not bother, as it seems Bluray will dominate.

In a nutshell, if you are after a gaming console for gaming, go for the 360. If you require a console and a HD player, it would seem a PS3 is the way to go.

When you get your 360 :) Might I suggest: -
COD4
Dead Rising (Only for the 360)
Halo 3 (Only for the 360)
Gears of War (360)

I'd go for the PS3 doesnt have a brick attached just to power the thing and also the Blu ray. HD DVD i dont think stand a chance now as i think Warner brothers has gone over to blu ray!

im thinking of getting a falcon chip xbox 360 to replace my current one. has anyone had any bad experiences with the falcon chip model, any break downs?


I had a bad experience with the new Falcon (175W) machine.

It lasted 3 weeks before the dreaded RROD and was returned for a refund and money went into a PS3.

Although I'll buy another 360 only when the real FULL falcon's are out.

The only good news is that they are on the right track. I had a normal 360 before and after 1 hours play the disc got very warm, but after 9 hours play with the HALF FALCON the dics was a bit warm.

But the biggest put off was the console noise while playing 360 games, it's fine on normal old xbox games (I borrwoed my mades hard drive) and fine while playing DVD's but wack in a 360 game ........

Some of these issues may ont be a problem for some but one should bear them in mind.

I think the 360 is an awesome machine with the currently the best games but I own a PS3... so why don't I own an 360, basically because everyone I have had (5) has died RROD which I find unnaceptable, having had enough I decided to buy a PS3 as I think given time both machines will practically have the same game exluding a few exclusives. Blu-ray is is the future and if your a DVD fan then this is possibly the best Blu-ray player on the market.

Hope this helps

i'm not going to bother to read previous posts, i've seen them all already in countless other threads lol.

i like my ps3, never used the 360 in over a year. i like the blu-rays on my plasma, i like the XMB, i like the way i can stream media to it from my laptop, i like the games ive played - Ratchet and Clank, resistance, Burnout Paradise etc, i like the joypad too, it fits my hands perfect and its familiar as i have always had playstations, i like its wireless out the box, i like the fact it hasnt failed on me with any flashing red lights lol.

so i say get a ps3. or not...your call.
