Dont know who said that - imo the 360 is the better console atm with games and choice

[SIZE="5"][COLOR="Red"]Bad Points [/COLOR][/SIZE]

OIf you dont turn it off in a certain way you will kill the ps3
Ops3 online is very poor compared to xbox live
Othe games atm for the ps3 havent done too well in reviews
Oconsole is hard to programme for so games take longer
Ogood luck finding the 60gb - no 40gb no ps2 compatability
Oblu rays arnt region free
Opretty expensive console
O I might be wrong but blu ray films wont work unless you have an hd tv (im wrong arnt it :-( )
Opretty expensive - did i mention that


[SIZE="5"][COLOR="Red"]Personally id recommend the xbox 360 mainly because i own one and its the only console i havent sold or thought of selling you dont HAVE to buy the xbox 360 elite the premium can be picked up for £200
It really depends on the kind of person you are buying for -xbox 360 is more sports-racing and shooters
Ps3 is more platformers[/COLOR][/SIZE]

Ill carry your list on:

BAD POINTS
Extortionate pricing for xbox live
You need to buy batteries for the 360.
It sucks compared to the ps3

---
howver, i'd go with the elite, its almost near impossible to find a ps3 60gb.
#3
extortionate pricing on xbox live? you my friend have obviously never played world of warcraft.
#4
Exactly. Thats even more extortionate. Who'd pay £15 for the game, then £9 a month?

And yes i have paid for xbox live before, and its way too expensive.
#5
you dont need batteries for the controllers, buy a rechargable battery pack.
The 360 controllers are also more comfortable IMO, XBL is the best, ps3 online SUCKS IMO. But both very good consoles, but definetly go with a 360 worth the money!

and 1st post :)
#6
You still have to pay the extra money for the batteries.
#7
I own both, I'd recommend the 360, even having to pay for Live and stuff.
Not to say the PS3 isn't worth getting, but the 360 is more deserving of your money ATM.

Another bad point for the 360 is it doesn't have built in Wi-Fi, and an adapter is ridiculously expensive.

The online is well worth the money, i'd pay that every time rather than get the ps3 online one free which doesn't come close to xbox live.

Rechargeable batterys are very cheap so poor argument there.

It sucks? you a 12 year old american? :whistling:
#9
No, i'm not, i'm not the child here, picking things out what people are saying? would you like me to say "it's sh*t compared to the ps3?"
#10
doesn't matter really... It sucks compared to the ps3 or it's **** compared to the ps3, both still very childish thing to say
#11
Yeah Live is definately worth the money if you play online at all.

what way is this....also ps3 will get better as time goes on
#13
Think he may mean the switch at the back, but if you use the controller or the front button it'll be fine.
#14
ah right cheers

when??? everybody has said this since it came out and guess what- so far it HAS NOT GOT BETTER.

So please, tell me - WHEN? and what makes you think it will get better anyway!:whistling:
#16
Everyone said the RROD on the xbox would get better? WHEN?
I had 3 360's in 5 months and yes, i took very good care of it.
Which is why i've given up on the 360s.
#17
I think the PSN could rival XBL when Home is out, but for the minute, XBL is easily better.
More PS3 are coming out soon-ish, and some already. (Ratchet + Clank, Uncharted)
#18
The reason Live costs is because the servers are ran by Microsoft, meaning they'll never close down, unlike the PS3's servers ran by game companies.

This will just lead to an argument. I'd say 360, because I have one. The next guy will say the 360 sucks because he has a PS3 ect. You will NEVER get a straight answer here.

well they are improving the online at the moment with HOME and i think they are having achievements like xbox
#20
I think if you want a reliable console that may or may not get more popular, go for the PS3.
If you want an unreliable console, that's better ATM and has a head start, go for the 360.
#21
All the people i know whpo have 360s have not broken, and one thing i know- they dont keep them in hot rooms, on carpets..etc
you have to take care with all consoles, but ive had my 360 for over a year, still very happy with it and will be for time to come
#22
my 360 was on a table which was dusted regularly.
the room was usually room temperature, a few over or under.
Even when it broke it wasnt dusty
#23
By this time next year the PS3 will not only have the better online service (free, Home, integrated cross media bar into games), but will also have the better games, with a lot more variety than the 360 (MGS4, FFXIII, KZ2, LBP, GT5, Tekken 6, Haze, Singstar, Buzz... are all exclusives) At the moment the 360 is better, but that won't last for too long.

You must do something wrong- even if you dont think you do

either you dont look after it properly, or you just suck at life:thumbsup:
#25
Or maybe their manufacturing is just ****?
Which im fully for.

Considering 1/5 to 1/3 of all xbox 360 consoles made have RROD'd you think its just me?
#26
It may be badly ventilated at the back of the console.
#27
yeah ok, they are just manufacturing it wrong..... thats why they are **** (dno if ur allowed to swear on here) rich and sell millions of consoles and games that work perfectly

Yeh i do agree with you - i will be turning to the darkside but not atm
I want that Afrika game :-( pokemon snap goes safari :-D

But at this time in gaming the ps3 hasnt got enough stuff to warrant the buy next year will be whole new ball game

I only want a ps3 to A)play blu rays B)play imported baseball games C)To fry my eggs in the morning
#29
i had a 360 and got bored of the games i had, some i didnt even bother with playing more then once and wasnt impressed with halo. now theres some good games coming out im gonna get them for ps3 as i just think it may last longer.
it has other perks aswell but thats the main one.

Right now you cannot beat the Xbox 360, it wins hands down. Its interesting to know that on first year sales alone, the two consoles are selling at roughly the same rate. If you look back to the PS2 it was only really in the 2nd and 3rd years that it really became massive. Mind you they didn't have the same competition back then as there is now with the 360 and Wii. They have a lot of catching up to do this time round. Im sure they will catch up eventually, or at least I hope they do.
Xbox Live is brilliant, its been established for 5 years and will only get better. I cant see Sont ever beating Xbox in the online gaming department, even if HOME is free. Again Sony has a lot of catching up to do here. I don't know what exclusive games Sony has in the pipeline either, but I know a lot of the games these days are multi-platform.
Personally I wouldn't want to wait and see IF the PS3 is going to establish itself in the next year. Right now the 360 is established and even if the PS3 picks up a lot of steam, the 360 still will have a massive user base and will still be releasing pretty much the same games. Its not like the Xbox will suddenly die IF the PS3 becomes more successful.
I hope the PS3

what happened to my paragraphs!!?

Oh yeah, a 12+ 1 month xbox live gold subscription can be bought for less that £20.

And, the newer versions of the xbox, i think manufactured since October (?), with HDMI at the back have had the 3 red rings of death problem sorted out apparently

I've a 360, can you point me to where a 13 month sub is £20 please.

But for my 5 cents I'e had both, I wanted to love the PS3 i really did but sadly, for the minute, it's just not there, the online store is rather empty and I'll tell you what really did it for me, when there is a game demo you fancy downloading you do, excellent it's on my harddrive ready to go right, Wrong, you then have to leave it to install for 10 minutes to find out the game was rubbish anyway.

I'm not digging the PS3, I'm no fanboy, frankly it's neither here nor there to me which you buy, I loved the blu-ray and that would be my only reason for ever having one again but ther films are too expensive and it really just wasn't commercially viable for me to holw on to it.

ANyway, xbox sits happy in the corner these, days, yes you do have to buy batteries, yes you do have to buy a wi-fi adapter, not that I would recommened wifi game play on either format, think you would need to double the capacity of the connection before you could evere describe wifi gaming as stable.

Anyway, proceed as you will to whatever console floats your boat.

Good Luck, plenty of deals kicking about at the mo.

I bought my 12month + 1 Gold membership for £17.99 from ebay. Amazing price. However that was only for new subscriptions, not for current subscribers wishing to extend their subsription.

To extend your current subscription the cards are around £28 for the 12 +1.
