I doubt you'll get an unbiased opinion here unfortunately. I have both and prefer the 360 for online play and quality of graphics. Saying that Killzone2 on the ps3 is looking to be better graphically than anything yet on either console but we'll wait and see. Home is nearly here (the online ps3 world) and will be free however you have to pay ~£35 a year for the 360 service but I think it's well worth it. There's an interesting article here comparing the ps3 vs 360 on graphics and the 360 wins in each case. If you want to watch blu-ray films then obviously the ps3 has the bluray player built in but personally I don't watch that many films and find just going to blockbusters or renting them in HD from the Xbox live service fine. \and obviously there is the price too, you can pick up a 360 for ~£100!. Hope this helps.

i own a ps3 but play friends xbox 360's every week
personally i much prefer ps3
xbox may be cheaper but you have to pay for wireless adapter and xbox live etc
best bit of advice i can give you is buy it brand new so you got a warranty because it will without doubt get red ring as some point
i know loads of people with xbox's and every single 1 of them has had it break at some point

Personally........i'd go for the XBOX 360.

I have both and the PS3 doesn't get used a fraction as much. I only get the Sony exclusives on PS3 and everything else on 360

Defo Xbox 360, At the moment it's miles ahead of the PS3.

The future it may well turn into the PS3's favour but the power of the PS3 is yet to be truly unleashed.

If Blu-ray is an important feature then you might want to get a PS3.

Personally I'd get an Xbox360 for now and in the future the PS3's price tag will come down and it will have more and better games.

Mine hasn't and I've had one for 2 years :thumbsup: and PS3s also have occassional problems....

The other thing to think about is will you be playing with friends, if so what do they have?

spot on!!
ps3 is a console for the future
buying xbox means your buying something from the past
also true ps3 isnt running at full power yet

get both =D

I have all 3 consoles now >_> unfortunately my xbox is an old version so it doesn't have a HDMI port so I get all the games for drooling over on PS3.

If you know how to get hold of xbox 360 games very cheap then I would go for that. I do love my PS3 but the games are damn expensive.

Thanks for some honest and leveled reply's.

I think i'll go for the 360, based on price of console + games.

Next Xmas maybe a PS3.

I have a 360, but not a PS3, so I'm not in a position to provide unbiased advice. But one thing you should think about is which console do most of your friends own? If you're planning on playing online much, then that's a fairly big factor.

I got both consoles - I do use my PS3 more...but that's only because I use it everyday using PlayTV and for upscaling my DVDs.

360 is the best games console though - it's online service is worth the premium you have to pay as it is truly excellent.

There's more better, cheaper games available too - a massive library already. Even little things like being able to play your own music (stored on the hard drive) whilst playing a game of PES09 etc - which you can't currently do on the PS3!

The PS3's hardware whilst better than the 360 is so far un-used by comparison. I'm playing Gears of War 2 right now - graphics (and the gameplay) are just fantastic :)
