got to be ps3 blue ray is far superior. I have had both but still use the playstaion for games and movies top machine
#2
xbox; ps3 is far to overpriced
#3
When I was choosing what platform I wanted I went onto You Tube and watched some videos comparing these two.
#4
has to be the ps3, jsut put a 320gb hard drive in mine and makes a great media centre esp for hd movies:thumbsup:
#5
thnx guys
are you able to stream content to the ps3 if you have plugged into your network somehow ( i use the powerplug internt things)
and for those of you who own both, which has better graphics?
ps3 seems to have better game selection as well ?
#6
PS3 for reliability, Blu-ray, easier HDD upgrade, & better technology. Xbox for being cheaper & more games.

some of the clips which are on youtube don't show the full potential of the ps3 in terms of graphics as they don't change the settings in the ps3 to full hd, smoother, full rgb colours and therefore both systems graphics look the same. Once they are on you can see the deeper and darker tone on ps3 graphics, the detail which is waaaaay better than the 360. If you want a system which breaks all the time get the 360 lol!
#10
If your into online gaming no choice but to get a xbox360 plus not much difference in graphics,had all consoles but stuck with the 360 as theres more game choice.
#11
360 all the way, the new ones don't have the same reliability issues the early ones did, and even if they do, its all covered by MS warranty for a free replacement.

360 has many more games and the graphics are just as good as the PS3. Much cheaper too :)
#12
PS3- No question
#13
lol PS3 fanboys out in force this xmas. Must have no games to play.

Get an xbox and you wont regret it.
Unless you want a bluray player as well.
#14
it depends what games you actually want for each console; look at the exclusives for both, decide which has most you want, factor in blu-ray if you don't already have a player (and want one) and you should be able to make a decision. TBH so many of the AAA games out are on both and it doesn't really matter all that much unless you really want gears or halo (on the Xbox) or LittleBigPlanet or MGS (on the PS3). I suppose the Xbox is cheaper though :-D
#16
I and i must say my 360 only gets turned on when i want to play gears of war.

My ps3 is used a lot more.

Some say no games for the ps3 but I don't really understand them. and my favourite game at the moment is resistance 2 for ps3 - Love the online for it.

Also many people say that the online is better for the 360. I don't really understand that , I know I didn't use my 360 online often but most of my mates are 360 fanboys , never touched a ps3 in their lives , and when they came round the other day , they loved the ps3 and said that there's not much difference with the online play.

Also the media to hate the ps3 and that doesn't add to the ps3's reputation.


If you're just going to use it for games then I'd say 360 , but if you are going to take full advantage of the graphical advantage the ps3 has with blu-rays and all , then I'd say choose the Ps3.

thanks guys, lot of good info here, especially from people who own both, im thinkgin ps3 has a better line up of exclusive games, and the top ons COD, streetfight4 are on both anyway
also xbox isnt really THAT much cheaper is it, you have to purchase a lot of addons, lan adaptor, online membership makes it nearly same price of ps3 anyway.,...

Developers are switching resources AWAY from PS3 game development towards xbox and wii games. That should tell you all you need to know. The industry views the PS3 as a dead man walking.

Just to back up the statement made above, read it here

http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/siliconalley/personal-tech/2008_12_sonys_ps3_a_sinking_ship_sales_plummet_sne.html

"There's really only one option left for Sony to remain in the game: deep price cuts, and not just for people with good credit. Tell yourself the PS3 has superior graphics if it makes you feel better, but a $400 console with a mediocre game library simply cannot compete against an Xbox 360 priced at $200 in this economy."

if you have the money, ps3. if your one for getting the games on the cheap, and playing with your freinds xbox. saw a pre-owned 60gb ps3 (best one) with a game upto the value of 22.99 for 249.99 the other day in leeds crossgates, don't know if it applies to all stores.

This could erupt in to a HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray squabble :)

hey man, i was in the same boat about a month ago! couldn't decide! :thinking:
i chose the xbox 360 not because it was cheaper but because most my friends had one:
- 17 of them have an xbox 360
- only about 5 or 6 have a ps3...

the online gameplay is not free but definately worth the money and the new update, the New Xbox Experience is simply brilliant.. :-D
also i LOVE the gamerscore, it makes you more competitive and makes you want to play a lot more games! i know the ps3 probably has a slightly better graphics card but the difference is nearly unnoticeable! if you want an extremely professional gaming system, buy the ps3. But if you wanna have loads of fun and play games from a huge selection, definately get the xbox 360!

i connected my xbox 360 to my laptop so you dont have to buy the wireless adapter, connection works great for it! :thumbsup:
in the end, its your personal preference that counts, i had a ps2 before and i thought that was pretty awesome, the controller was easy to use and very user friendly. When i got the xbox 360 i though it was gonna take some time to get used to the 360 controller but the buttons are practically in the same place and it just feels a lot better than the ps3 controller, which i have used regularly at a friends house!
good luck deciding :thumbsup:

Not sure where you get your figures but you can pick up a 360 for £100 now. You only need to buy a network thing if you want wireless, if your wired network, its ready out the box.

Online membership is about £25-£30 for 13 months.

I got the following from Gamestation for just shy of £225

Xbox pro - 60gb HDD £169.99
Lips - £44.99
Wireless Dongle - £59.99
Wireless Entertainment Pack - £25.00

xbox & lips were price matched against a HMV offer (£169.99 for both), and if you buy anything xbox related you can get the dongle 1/2 price (£29.99).

Pay for online gaming, not on your nelly. I own both and id say ps3 any day of the week.

The 360 doesnt get used that much except by the kids, I cant stand how noisy the damn thing is. And it looks cheap compared to the nice shiny playstation.
#30
Has to be 360, just for price and games......

3 360's for a PS3, and game development takes 3 times also...

There may be trouble ahead....

My PS3 only looks pretty and plays the amazing Blue Ray format...
