Plsystation 3 for under £400, as lots of places are lowering the price.

As one of few fans of Sony remaining in the UK, i feel this is a great price for a system worth over £700 to make.

Cheaper elsewhere

WORTH over £700???? You must be an absolute die-hard mate. No-one else believes for a minute that this is worth more than £250.

I do, have to say the PS3 wipes the floor with the 360, as a games machine, graphics are slightly better but then 360's been out for a year. just wait until the developers get really into what this machine can do.

And yes I also have a 360 as well

As for the media centre, its just excellent, presentation of photo's is superb as is reproduction of music and HD Video.

No complaints, worth every penny.

And yes sony make a loss of around $350 on each unit sold.

Games on order for PS3 - 11
Games on order for 360 - 1

Speaks volumes.

It is worth 700 quid.. thats how much the componants cost on average, not just for the bluray drive but the cell processor as well.. its a sept-core processor!

On that basis a new Fiesta is worth about £100k :-D

Try costing all the components that make one of them up from a Ford dealer :roll:

Oh no! Not again *Bangs head against wall* :cry:

People are insane.

I cant even make sense of this.

Would agree some people are insane, not sure what that has to do with a PS3.

And what can't you make sense of?

You say 'the ps3 wipes the floor with the 360' but the only evidence you present to support this is the 360's graphics are currently better?

Thanks for expanding on your comments.

I will add more.

Its more than just a games machine.

It really is a media centre.

I'm just so impressed.

360 is just a games machine, a good one but thats all.

PS3 is much more than that, a good games machine, Internet access, Media Centre to hold Music, Video's and Photo's. Oh yes a Blu-Ray DVD player as well.

I know its only one game but Motorstrom is one of the best racers I've ever played!

In my mind Sony have really gone the extra mile on this machine. In some people's opinion it may seem overpriced but I am happy with what I paid.

My 2 modded xboxes can do all the above apart from the Blu-Ray bit but I'll happily substitute that for the ability to play mp3 cd+g files turning it into the ultimate entertainment machine.

Oh yes, I am happy with what I paid for mine too

Call the cops there is a mad man on the loose.

360 currently (and that is all we can go on in terms of facts) is a better games machine.

360 is also a media centre and intergrates with XP and MS which is the market leader OS with 95% market share of PCs. I have all my music and pcitures on it...and live broadcast TV through MCE.

360 of course has internet access too (though you my be alluding to www access and the fact the PS3 has a crap browser beaten by the Wii).

360 controller is far superior to PS3.

Xbox live is a far better online system too.

PS3 is nice and quiet though. Especially as it rarely gets turned on now.

PS I own all three 'nextgen' consoles. Ps3 is currently the worst. Though bluray on 100" projector is nice...nearly as nice a HDDVD

Will there be a hd content rental service for ps3?
For those of you who are unaware in america the 360 currently enjoys such a service, and I would assume we will see it over here at some point.

Not stating this as an argument, just wondered if anyone had heard anything.

I am already able to rent Blu-Ray DVD's from Tesco's, not a great slection at the moment but will improve or are you talking about online.

Ah, yeah sorry, I meant via download.

Regardless to how long the Xbox360 has been out, it'll always be able to achieve better graphics than the PS3...strangely, that's what happens when you have a better graphics card inside the console :thumbsup:

Why does this thread have to be about 360's:?

If people want a 360 they will look at 360 threads:roll:

Because people love a good flame?

oh yes let the truth runneth over. To lay the facts straight, the ps3 cell processor is arguably better than what is in the 360. The graphics card in the PS3 however is basically a nvidia 7800gt which is now fairly old hat, whereas the 360's ATI graphics card is based i believe on the R600 core, which is still yet to be released on the PC so is fairly cutting edge technology.

Bottom line, 360 has the potential (note the word potential in the next few lines) for better graphics whereas the PS3 has potential for better physics. Other than that gaming wise (excluding online functionality & xbox achievements) they are much of a muchness.

Would disagree, graphics in Motorstorm are awesome and whip anything I've seen on the 360.

As the saying goes, its not what you've got but how you use it!

Motorstorm isnt that hot.

commodore all the way.:thumbsup:

seriously though,:thinking:
does anyone know of good sites/shops that sell blu-ray movies for a good price (you know, cheap)
i got black hawk down from Tescos (£13.90) lastnight and it looks good, but i really dont want to be paying £17+ for the newer releases.

thanks for any info

Did I die in my sleep and go to groundhog day hell? Didn't we finally kill this 'green is better than red' argument a couple of days ago?

If so I would like to expand the thread with my own thoughts.

Pies are brilliant and pasties are rubbish, anyone who thinks pasties are L33t should die. Pies R00l

The storage capacity of a pie t0tally kicks a$$ whereas the Pastie is all pastry and no content. Some peopl like the flakiness of puff pastry but they are all just n00bs. Shortcrust is 10 times better because it weighs more!

If any playa haytas out there think I'm wrong then get this - you can get varying size pies from individual to family size - whereas pasties only come in individual

you dissagree - you trippin l00zas!


etc...etc...

Somone has just pointed out to me that a Calzone Pizza is actually just a giant pastie, and can be quite large in size. Given enough dough and filling you could infact feed a family - albiet a small one.

Please forgive my naive insolence.

You have obviously never experienced 'The Beast of Bodmin Moor' Cornish pasty. Uber l33t and teh kewl. Tastes good too.
