Yeah. The only opinions that count really are from those who own both. I barely play my PS3. Love so many things about it (XMB, free themes, free but sortof rubbish online, honest cash value downloadable content) but when it comes to games, the xbox has all decent exclusive titles. Only games I have for PS3 that aren't also out on xbox are utterly meh. Uncharted and ratchet and clank being two alrightish ones.

Microsoft may milk every penny they can out of you, but really, the xbox is ten times better. When I hear someone tell me a PS3 is better, I automatically write them up as an idiot that can't listen to reason, and just probably hasn't had the chance to compare both.

The big test came through today with GTA's resolution. On PS3 it runs at 630p instead of 720p. Couple that with the 360's better anti-aliasing (makes 3d objects look less jaggy) and the ps3 version, to me at least, looked pretty ugly. See here.

I'm no fanboy, before I get flamed here. I just think sony made some DUMB mistakes and lost out.

Please dont even mention the controllers. Xbox wins hands down.

i'm a ps1 fan, those controllers are sexy. i like the position of the analogue sticks on ps better than xbox, with their wonky design

after the problems i had with my ps2 though i doubt i'll buy another sony console. they screwed me over with my laptop faults as well. i dont quite know whether to like sony or not, because the ps1 is one of the greatest consoles ever

i'd like to have a go on mgs4 sometime, i don't think that's coming out for xbox..

The arcade is Microsoft new name for the basic Xbox package, unless you're specifically going to use it in a non-gaming role (such as a media extender) I think you're best sticking with the Premium as it comes with everything you need. The hard drive is pretty much essential which by the time you've paid for on the arcade you may as well have bought the premium anyway.

Technically, the Xbox has more powerful graphics hardware. Their online service has better infrastructure too. I bought my PS3 because it's the cheapest good quality Bluray player you can get. To me, it's a happy bonus that I can also play games on it, particularly updates of my old favorites like Gran Tourismo 5.

Actually PS3 is more powerful on paper, not that games have shown it so far.

As to the title.

MS will not let developers use the HDD so unless you are planning to play online, where a HDD is a must, then go for a cheaper arcade. All new 360s have HDMI now - even arcade.

The 360 and PS3 have the same graphical capabilities. The 360 has more graphical ram however, and the graphics are alot more antialiased. 360 will always look better with games.

The cell chip in PS3 however, has 8 cores, whereas the 360 has 3 I'm sure. All this means is that Sony were idiots, basically stuffing a supercomputer into something that will never make use of all that power. It is, and will be utterly useless to the end user, unless the PS3 is ever hacked, in which case, homebrew developers might make good use of it. The developers of the new Ghostbusters game however have felt "limited" by the 360, citing development for PS3 only would lead to more characters onscreen. This would be the cell showing it's ONLY advantage in gaming, the use of many more people or things moving around onscreen at one time. The cell is a known bitch to work with though, like the sega saturn.

The biggest argument, is that 360 has the greatest selection of unique games. I'd happily tout the ps3's merits myself, if it had one unique title I could rave on about, but personally, All I've found would be uncharted and ratchet and clank. Both still rather average. I'd have dead rising and the new banjo kazooie over them anyday.

Superpooper is mainly correct. If you do your homework you will find that the PS3 has a potentially more powerful CPU. Where as the XBox360 has a more powerful GPU. The ATI chip in the Xbox has a unified shader architecture with more pixel shader power. So I standby my original comments that the XBox has a more powerful graphics processor.

Fetch me my specs. I am feeling geeky!!

Premium comes with headset, wireless controller and 20gb hdd. Obviously much better if you're planning to go online.

I'd say go with the Premium. Premium + GTA4 is only £189 on Play with the 5% code, pocket money more than the Arcade. If there's extras you don't want that come with the Premium just sell 'em to get even more $ back.

As for 360 Vs. PS3. 360 has my vote.
