    Ditto. Not forgetting the 360 is easily 'adaptable' to play 'cheaper' games.:whistling:

    yes totally different hun...but he wont see this fully unless he has a LCD/Plasma TV compared to a CRT but there still a vast improvement...if has a TV that supports it the 360 or PS3 will allow for full 1080p

    If he's a serious gamer try and get the one with a hard drive (if your budget allows and you love him enough!!). He'll thank you for it!

    We are mates ha ha. I can call you babe if it makes you feel better :-D



    Lol. Only kiddin!

    I would recommend the ps3 and i would be classed as a "proper gamer". its more expensive but you get all the functionaliy out of the box, with the xbox you have to pay extra for wireless etc, depends what hes really going to use it for.,

    HUN!...I would say get one with a HDD....if hes big on his games then the 60gb version would do nicely...will he use it to play online as well?

    All you need for the 360 is to buy Live for 3 months/12 months etc..its free on PS3 but XBL is much better...


    Technically he needs nothing...DEPENDING on what connections he has at house.
    It comes with an Ethernet lead which can be plugged into Router or back of PC. Also can have wireless but thats extra...or Homeplugs work nicely too

    You need a broadband internet connection and a wireless headset, that's all (you can still play without headset though). The headset used to come with it when I bought mine. Dunno if it still does tbh.

    He have PS2, xbox is a bit different from sony stuff, controler wise etc, best to get is PS3, u not only be able to play High def games, but watch movies, music, Use web, Not talking about Bluray its Great :))))

    xbox 360 mate

    Nice thing to buy your bro

    let's not start a 360vPS3 war, they're so tedious. Both have pros and cons (well, no cons in truth but bith have pros) More games for 360, Blu-ray for PS3. Whichever you get he'll be chuffed.
    Why not slyly (that doesn't look right!) broach the subject and see if he expresses any preference?

    I recommend the Puss Three.

    Where can you get a PS3 for £200? by £200ish I assume you mean about £300?
    Yes the 360 is different to a PS2, but it was no great change for me, picked it up pretty quick when I bought mine less than a year ago and I have no regrets whatsoever...its much better than the PS3 as a GAMES CONSOLE without a doubt and with the exception of Blu Ray there is no need whatsoever to buy a PS3 over a 360...and thats from someone who is just waiting for a real excuse to buy a PS3 as well...

    360 is a much better console and PS3 wont be the superior machine for quite a while yet also the exclusives are way better on a 360

    I've got both a PS3 and 360. I prefer the 360 every time as there more quality exclusive games and the online functionality is in a different world to that of the PS3 (though you do have to pay for it!!).

    My major annoyance is the noise the 360 gives off when playing games but this is being addressed with a patch on the 19th November when you can install games to the HDD. What this will mean is that you will probably need an Xbox Elite (bigger hard drive for storing games) which edges it's price closer to that of the PS3.

    Where I do like the PS3 is the quality of the DVD output and it can play Blu Rays. It is also great for using as a general purpose media player. It does have some gaming exclusives but I prefer the games on the 360 and there are generally more of them.

    Gaming wise, I think the 360 wins.

    Have a look at hims games collection and we can give you a more accurate opinion.

    definitely the 360 for games. I never used to like xbox but when i got the 360 after the ps2 it was easy to pick up and great fun.
    Plus most of my friends have a 360 which makes it better for borrowing games or playing online if he wants to do that.

    Elite 120gb is optional...the standard has a 60gb HDD now so thats more than should suffice nicely



    Nikki...if u wanna get him games too we will talk about it later if u want give you some recommendations

    i posted this deal last week, in my opinion it is the best at the moment for the 60 gb.

    hotukdeals.com/ite…ea/

    Plus if he doesnt like the games or if you want to buy different games then you can sell these on for roughly 70 quid at the moment. Making the console 130 and leaving you with cash to buy games you want.

    That is a good price with those games...personally if it was me I'd get that and flog Fallout and keep Gears (there 2 of the biggest games Nikki)...

    not the best but to compare prices: play.com/Gam…tml

    Gamestation deal though hun is very good...Gears of War 1 can be picked up for around £10 whereas the 2nd one has only just come out so your looking at about £30...Fallout is new too and if you flogged that on probs get £30 for it or keep...depends what your brother is in too really

    go for a 360 i love mine and i use it to watch avi films as well, its plugged into my 5.1 amp one thing to consider tho is what consoles his mates have as he will want to play online against them

    Do you mean download films from XBL or from a computer? Like could you watch downloaded movies from a PC on your TV by sending it through the 360?

    Yeah...so all the films & TV series I have on my portable HDD I can watch through the 360...better than fiddling about clicking stuff open etc

    You have to set sharing up on WMP but its pretty easy just have to wait a while for initial setup of media shraing folders then after that its fine

    You cannot count Ebay as a price guide or we would be able to get everything cheaper etc
    Sorry but there is no way its a better CONSOLE...360 wins on that, PS3 is more like a Home Entertainment Unit than a Games Console...only thing that wins is the Blu Ray imho and like I said i am waiting for a PS3 price drop so I can have both but mostly for the Blu Ray but in 18+ months time the PS3 will be better but it just doesnt have the games catalogue

    that ebay auction is for a 2nd hand ps3 that has a 40gb hard drive, no box and only half its warranty!

    Lol...so thats a Fail if ever I saw one...:-D


    I lol @ Fanboys

    epic fail!

    PS3 is much better for multimedia purposes, but being a 360 fanboy I would suggest the 360 due to the amount of games available and the price

    There really arent many more games on the xbox than the ps3.
