I originally had a ps3 now I own both I find the 360 has better online play but wouldnt trade my ps3 for the world...so much better for media and the online play is free...so i guess im not really helping but get both! lol
#2
Online hasn't changed much really so if you didn't like it before then you won't like it now.
#3
I brought a PS3 to play Socom, but returned the PS3 within 5 days.

It took me 3 hours to get to play the game...

Each game has to "install" to the ps3??, then the updates take hours..

Online.. Well the system and friends lists xbox uses are used to are gone, no decent message system or anything. Onine was laggy and useless to get into games with friends...

Back to the xbox and would rather pay for a live service that works, and if the console is unreliable, I would buy one every year rather then carry on with a PS3...

Good luck, and this is just my opinion.. xx

my son was xbox daft.... but changed the other day to the ps3 and keeps saying its much much better.... got a great deal with trade ins at game.... got the 40gb ps3,(preowned) , 2 year accidental warranty, a £40 game, hd cable and the playtv for £260..... it did take a while to load it all up and update etc.... at least i dont have to pay for xbox live now....

i hope this helps

hardly ever play games online hence my bias is massively in favour of the ps3. I appreciate that the 360 is better for online gaming but I just aint gonna fork out money regularly to M$ for the rare opportunities I might want an online game. exclusives this year and last are far better on the ps3 and I love the fact its a proper media player unlike the 360 where you have to mess around with usb sticks / streaming etc.

best advice - have both ;-)

The Xbox 360 is better in almost every respect. Most people I kknow think the same. If you think about the relatively high number of break downs the 36 used to have and it still outsells the PS3 in its sleep, you can pretty much see that it's the better machine with better games. You can also check the games charts as virtually all games that come out on both PS3 and 360 sell almost 2 - 1 in favour of the xbox. (I know WII outsells them both but everyone knows the Wii is a graphics and power inferior machine with a radical all age, gamer non- gamer experience. Like for like it's the XBOX 360 hands down.

BUT...............................

If you at all interested in watching 3D movies when they start hitting Blu-Rays this spring, and the 3D TVs start hitting shops in April the PS3 may just be for you. I'm not sure that all current Blu-Ray player, (if ANY!) will be able to play 3D Blu-rays with a firmware update. The PS3, like the SKY+ HD box will be able to play 3D with just a nice download from Sony. That may make a difference.

That's all rubbish.
PS3 has been outselling the 360 for a very long time.

Very hard to tell how many have been sold. Dont think it is verified, just have to go by what both company's say.

He did say the games though, not hardware

Ugh the fanboy bit as usual, just get both and you not only have the best of both worlds you can also laugh at the fanboys..

Though I am glad I don't have a PS3 phat at this present time :roll:


Owning both consoles doesn't stop you from being a fanboy.

You do know that if you discount the one years head start that the 360 had, the PS3 is comfortably ahead of the 360? At a much higher price?

Iv'e had no problems with my vertical fat 80 since launch, but I found my horizontal slim to crash quite a lot until I raised it to allow more cooling underneath, the slims use less power but I still prefer the fat one though:thumbsup:

Owning just a PS3 certainly shows you are just a fanboy though.

I have a 360 and I also paid £270 for a 250gb PS3 slim in December because I am a 360 fanboy everybody :prop:

The one most likely to die is the one that gets used the least as it's a falcon, and the other 2 are Jaspers :)

All still with RROD warranty of course, so I'm not worried :)

Beats YLOD with no warranty and millenium bug troubles :p

(no fanboi, just truth - I have no need for a PS3 hence I don't haz one :) But respect it's abilities, but prefer mah treesixti)

(Don't know what I typed it that way).

cod mw2 works perfectly on ps3, just like the xbox.
the ps3 is the better games machine mate, media machine, online is coming on strongly to mate, with trophies, vidzone (free music videos, new ones not just old ones) bbc iplayer etc.

You already stated that the PS3 isn't yours, having enough disposable income to own both does not stop you slating one over the other. In two years when you've had the PS3 for as long as you've had the 360, i'll believe your comments as more objective.:whistling:

If you want to part with £30 a year to play online with annoying whinging little kids, get a 360.

If not, get a PS3.

Very sly and deceiving the way you have worded that isn't it "You already stated that the PS3 isn't yours"
Actually the only reason why I said the PS3 is not mine is because I class them as the family's machines not just mine,
Go look at my post when I bought the machine I also bought LBP, as I explained it wasn't for me, I didn't want people thinking that game was for myself.

I also bought Hannah Montana on Blu ray that wasn't for me neither

------------------------------------------------------------------
Out of curiosity do you tell everybody in the house you are in that they can't use the PS3 because "You own it" and it's "Yours"
#29
Just to add to the mix!
I have both consoles but ps3 comes out tops in terms of media centre abilities. The online game & video stores are excellent and I love the built-in internet broswer and iPlayer. The wife and kids love it - it does just about everything - and it's so quiet too.

I agree with most, the only real way is to have both.

If your a movie buff PS3 all the way.
If your into games with your mates - which ever console most of them have.

I am truely sad and own both and MW2 on both (with diff crowds of mates). I have to say I prefer to play it on the xbox, im not saying the games is better on one over the other, just I have a better experience on the xbox over PS3. The party chat of the xbox really helps muting all the high pitched annoying 10 yr olds in the lobby

I just bought the XMC convertor so can now use a wired Xbox controler on the PS3. Really never got on with the PS3 controller. Cheapish link below
