Don't mean to start a feud between the gamers here but which one should I go for and why?? The ps3 or xbox 360?

Is the 'jasper' xbox model better than the new ps3?
Thanks guys

Depends entirely what you want it for

Media hub for movies ( blu ray) and browsing the net = PS3 from £229

Games console with superb online gaming and non stop great games = xbox 360 - from £129.99

Also depends on the kins of games you want - 360 is more FPS, sports and racing

Ps3 is more platformers

depends what you want it for...i have both (and a wii) but the 360 is flashed so i can play downloaded games. Then my ps3 i use as my media streamer, blu ray player, and online gaming.

Get out more it's £169.99 then you won't get a harddrive which is pretty pointless.

There are loads of threads about this on here already with people arguing one side or the other or even give you the pros and cons for each.... and I'm pretty sure that on some tech sites they have gone into this in great detail too.

You wouldn't murder a monk with a crowbar.....

iv got both always been ps3 guy, since got an elite for gaming it is really good and the menu layout , ps3 is good for blu rays and quick access to the internet, btw iv got fresh spanking new windows vista on my laptop and is running quick once again and not like a oap with a zimmer frame, no discrimanation intendid
#16
if they made a monk murdering with crowbar game then i would.

jasper has fixed the RROD fault. so if you buy a new xbox now, you can be fairly confident that it will last you. (i mean some still fail of course, but the failure rate has fallen massively for the new machine).

i was only interested in the xbox, and couldn't care less about the ps3, it was insanely expensive, i'd rather download an mkv than watch a blueray, and there were so few exclusive titles, especially ones i'd be interested in. that said, my friend has a ps3 and i've played on it and it's damn nice piece of kit, it does feel more classy than the xbox. it's like the xbox is kitted out golf gti and the ps3 is a merc.

and there are some very good games for ps3. the big thing for me now would probably just be, that i've never liked the playstation pads. also natal is coming out for xbox, and that looks cool.
#17
Get both!!!
#18
Love the xbox 360 cross game voice chat and gta 4 exclusive content but no the "jasper has fixed the RROD fault" is not true. Went through 4 xbox 360 , 1 near launch model, and 3 jasper models. The xbox 360 is good and cheap but be prepared for louder fans noises and nearly certainly using mircosoft warranty process. Also you miss out on uncharted and demon soul.

PS3 hands down.

well i was basing my statement on this http://gizmodo.com/5350779/after-four-years-has-microsoft-finally-solved-the-xbox-rrod-problem rather than personal or anecdotal evidence. Although I still think the failure rate is too high for both machines, the PS3 might hit the targets for consumer electronics but there is a big difference between a £20 cd player going wrong and a console that you might have originally paid £600 for.

Did the PS3 ever cost £600?
#23
No but his sentiment was in the correct stream.
#24
i think the top of the line model on launch day did. they dropped the price within like a month tho, and then gave something or other free i think to people who paid the original price. i don't remember too well.

Wow £600 and now £249.99 same with 360 used to be like £279.99 or something and now £169.99?
#26
i can't find the numbers, i guess i might be out by a bit. i saw $599 quoted somewhere so maybe i'm thinking of the US price.
#27
I say PS3
#28
go on what your mates have.

if you have no friends, it depends if you want a bluray.

if you dont want a bluray player, then look at the exclusives.

then choose.


(PS i recommed the PS3 - add me emhaslam)

Also depends on the kins of games you want - 360 is more FPS, sports and racing

Ps3 is more platformers


You what? :?

The majority of FPS, Sports and Racing games are multiplatform.............!

Fifa, PES, Grand Slam Tennis, Vurtua Tennis, Fight Night, Call of Duty, NHL, NBA, Burnout, Grid, Need for Speed etc etc..........


I would personally go for a PS3, because you pay once and get it all.

360 might cost less initially, but factor in annual Live subs, an official bigger HD and an official wireless dongle, and you have probably paid more than you would have done for the PS3 (especially over 2 years + use)

There are also some great PS3 exclusives out there now - Uncharted 1 & 2, MGS4, Motorstorm, Valkyria Chronicles, Infamous, Killzone 2, LBP, GT5 (when it finally arrives), Demon Souls................360 just seems to be hitting its users with the Halo stick again and again..................:whistling:

Got to love hitting with the same game;)

My view, and i own both consoles

If you want mostly media and a bit of gaming go with a ps3
If you want gaming with a bit of media go with xbox360

As for people going on about paying for live, they are either poor, or have never used it.

As it is well worth the £25 a year for it, compared to playing online via the ps3

Good point there though the PS3 is upping it's gaming although the online is still pretty much a pile of crap but I still prefer the PS3 over the 360.
