    Console advise

    I'm not looking at raising the whole Xbox360 v playstation 3 debate, I'm just wondering in your opinion which one I should get?

    I'm not a big gamer (i've got a Wii and only really play Tw10). I'm going to be playing racing games (Blur, F1) mainly and Stars Wars unleashed2 and similar type of things. I'm not really interested in playing online against aothers but would like to use in occasionally for surfing the .net and playing dvd's.

    Should I stick with the Wii? I'm kind of edging towards a PS3 but don't know what size HD to get. The Xbox is a cheaper option which I like but keep reading about the RRoD does this make the xbox less reliable?

    Like I say I'd only be an occasional gamer so any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I have a xbox which I play dvd's on & run a big fat network hard drive through.
    The RRD if heard I'd no longer an issue with the new consoles.
    PS3 does have blu-ray as it's advantage

    Up to you really

    if you're not a big gamer than i'd say go for a ps3

    ps3 doesn't charge you to play online which is good as you're not a regular gamer
    has a blu ray player
    can record freeview tv onto it's hard drive (play tv is pretty cheap)

    I'm going to be playing Madden NFL as well and I know I said I wasn't too fussed about online play, i've just been on youtube and seen people playing it online so might be tempted to try that. If I'm right is PS3 online play free? and it also has built in wifi where as xbox don't you have to subscribe for online play plus buy a wifi adapter?

    if u buy the 360s it has built in wifi

    360 all the way. (Y)

    NEVER had RROD on any of the 3 xbox's I have had (possibly luck). Have the Elite atm and had it for nearly a year now and played on it a lot and I mean a lot - total MW2 on in the disk tray is in excess of 50 days now.

    RROD doesn't really exist on the newer consoles.

    It really comes down to do you want/need blu-ray?

    Also i prefer the xbox controllers - ps3 ones give me sore heads after a short period of time.

    PS3 is free online but when it goes down you can't complain. . . eg. when LIVE on mw2 went down when mw2 stimulus pack came out I got an extra 7days free i think it was. Also i don't have one of the adaptors - I used to bridge the connection through my laptop using the ethernet cable supplied. I know use homeplugs which are just as good - and give my xbox a wireless cabled connection. PLenty vids on youtube on how to hook up you xbox without using the adaptor : )

    How is the web browser on the Wii and 360?

    Only got a Wii but nothing really seems to fit the screen and watching youtube can be a pain as it's a bit slow and again doesn't fit the screen (which you can toggle to fit)

    I really can't remember the last time this topic was brought up...

    Someone got up the wrong side of the bed

    if you want to know which console is better than i would suggest you to get feedback from the people who have both consoles, or if you want to know which ones more convenient to you only you can decide e.g. if you were going to buy a blu ray player than ps3
