Thought I would start a discussion to see what you really think about the 2 consoles above and which one you feel is the best.

I own a 360 and love it but have never tried a ps3!!

I have both and they both have their merits, Xbox Live is currently best for online gaming while the graphics on PS3 have the edge.

I've bought my boyfriend both. Xbox for xmas and Ps3 for his birthday last thursday. He turned the ps3 on once on thursday and hasnt played it since. Says xbox 360 so much better.

Nope, Xbox 360 have edge graphics wise

That's a toughy. Technically the PS3 is a better console by a pretty decent margin, as such it's capable of much more than the 360 in the long run. However, there aren't as many decent games on PS3 as 360 and PS3 is lacking in the online department too. That said there's lots on the way that should rectify that situation.

PS3 will come of age eventually, but for the here and now I'd probably say 360 has the edge.

EDIT: oh and I for one wont be buying a PS3 until they introduce all the features they removed like decent backwards compatibility and add in a reasonable sized HDD out of the box along with it, for that kind of price I want some decent storage - my MP3 collection wouldn't even fit on a 40Gb model.

If I was only allowed to keep one console it would be the 360 although the PS3 does some merits - thankfully I doubt such a decision will come up.

cant comment as i only have a 360 but based on online - games - graphics and controller id go fro 360

nooo, why did u create this thread all the fanboys will come out

I've only got a 360, so by vote goes that way by default, but a friend has all 3 next-gen consoles and spends more time on the 360 than the other 2 put together. Wii is fun, but is limited. PS3 doesn't get played anywhere near as much as the 360.

This thread won't end well :) or at all.
#9
For me the i prefer the 360. The PS3 is a good console, but i find the 360 more suitable to my needs.
#10
I went for the PS3 because I'd heard about so many 360's going wrong. Not regretted my purchase though, love it, especially as I've been picking up some bargains on games too over the last couple of days.

They need their weekly airing ;)

To be honest I'd rather that sort of talk was kept to a thread like this rather than within dedicated Xbox/PS3 threads, it's really irritating trying to discuss something like the new dash or what the PS3 80GB model will offer when you have people coming in and stirring it up. I prefer to enjoy the benefits of both consoles rather than waste time arguing about them

Scratch my post above - Sega Master System is were my final vote lies. All these next gen consoles and I've never been happier than when I was playing Alex Kidd in Miracle World or Sonic 2 back in the early 90s.

Grab yourself an emulator and go nuts.
#13
I have both and prefer PS3.
#14
360 FTW! Only cos I'm an Achievement Points *****.
#15
360 is far better IMO, PS3's attraction is simply that it has everything built in, and imo only 2 good exclusives, MGS4 and Time Crisis 4

Whenever I see people asking which one to buy in a Game or Gamestation store the staff almost always say 360(the ones that dont are the ones just interested in sales)

When I bought my 360 the guy said "well done mate best choice" and he said he didnt like the ps3.

I dont know anyone with a PS3 at uni bar 1 person and loads with 360s and they even have a halls facebook page for 360 tournaments through LAN and no PS3 one.
#16
The only problem with the 360 is that its failure rate is a complete joke. Other than that its got my vote too.

lol I got both, my ps3 is still boxed. Got them both on release.
#23
Looks like the 360 is prefered at the minuite and I can see why, the online play is immense (even if you do have to pay for it) the game choice is by far better than the ps3 with xbox only games including halo and gears (cant wait for no.2)

Ok the xbox might be unpredictable and die but who cares you get it fixed for free, the only problem is the wait for it to be returned. Im actually onto my 4th xbox 360 now had 2 premiums and Im now onto my second elite lol!!. The first 1 broke after 3months, 2nd lasted a year so I traded it in faulty and upgraded to an elite for 130 pounds which also lasted 3 months and my current elite is fine, fingers crossed.
#24
My last 360 last 3 weeks before the disc drive went and scratched my brand new GTAIV so im console-less atm. Was thinking of trying the PS3 but the general consensus seems to be to stick with the 360 so im not sure now. I dont use online gaming so that doesn't bother me, was just a bit fed up having to take the 360 back after a few weeks
#25
Definatly stick with the 360 the games or better by far!!!!

From what i've seen and played i would have to agree with you. They are also cheaper which helps. Just not sure whether to wait and see if the 60gb xbox comes out or just get an elite lol
#27
Have both and I prefer the 360 for gaming, but the PS3 was mainly bought for Blu-ray anyways...

Looking into the future though, there are some nice games coming for the PS3 that I'll be investing in.
#28
Both good in their own way, spec wise and graphics wise the PS3 edges it. Online and volume of games the 360 is ahead.

Sony also announced today that GTA 5 is delayed till 2009/10, which is yet another major title delayed.

I wish i had the funds to buy the two lol
Thinking about it the PS3 is probably best as an overall entertainment unit but seen as though i dont intend on buying into blu-ray for the next few years i think im best going with the 360 for pure gaming reasons
#30
Easily PS3, its got the better games;
Uncharted, MGS4, Ratchet, GT5:P etc - as well as the quality multiplats like COD4, Burnout, GTA4 etc

Also has the best future line up - Little Big Planet beats any future 360 release.

And the hardware is like 100 times better, my 40gb is so quiet and doesnt over heat, built in wifi, blu-ray, quality SD upscaler.

i like my xbox 360 but i think the ps3 is better for media, be it streaming or playing off the hd.

each to their own

sega mega drive 2

Oh snap! I had the original mega drive which had a tendency to over heat and lose wifi connection plus it had no HDMI port.
#33
Who cares about blue ray and other hardware, a computer is for playing games not movies. The 360 is also cheaper because of their great idea of not to add a hd player and making it available for people to buy separate (which can be picked up for 19.99 by the way) to keep the cost down for real gamers!!!
#34
360 wins it for me.
In my opinion it has better games.

Also i dont like the Ps controller

Silly fanboy, for one the 360 upscales great too, the newer 360's are quiet and arent an eyesore like the ps3 and out of the games you listed only MGS4 interests me.

Are you god? how can you say Litte Big Planet beats any future 360 games, have you played it or are going on hype?
#36
I have both and i gota say its quite close however i think 360 just gets it. Xbox live great achievments ect. However ps3 got cool extras such as blu ray home(well maybe) Both great bits of kit in my opinion.

The only decent PS3 exclusives i can think of are :MGS4,Killzone 2 and Resistance 1&2.
Getaway could of been great tho
#38
I've got both and although i prefer the xbox i'm starting to use my ps3 a lot more now, but more for storing my video and music files on, gaming wise it's the 360 all the way
#39
The only game I played on my PS3 was Time Crisis 4

Could mention the disaster of "Rumble is a last gen thing". or the fact that ps3 is adding things now that the 360 had from the start.


eh dont mistake me for a ps3 fanboy im just pointing out that the 360 hd-dvd drive was over 100 notes before toshiba or whoever withdrew.

also i remember when gta iv came out xbox fanboys were laughing at having to install it to the hard drive. i thought i read somewhere that some 360 title is also going to have a hd install as it is beneficial.. that would be classed as copying the ps3.
