    I have a PS3 but I'm considering getting rid and getting a 360 for a bit of a change.. would this be a grave mistake or a smart move?

    Personally I think it is a good idea, xbox has a better online experience. Plus I enjoy the xbox exclusives, Mass Effect and Gears of War especially (plus games tend to be a lot cheaper)

    No need for advanced search. '+360 +or +ps3' in general search, select misc on the right in results, scroll down. Read.

    I often wonder this myself. I hear it is better for friends, chat etc. Really after a long day of work the last thing I want to do is chat to people especially when a high percentage of them are highly annoying.

    On the PS3 when I play online, I log in, play, leave, I don’t want anymore or any less. So I guess if you expect more and the 360 has it as far as online gaming goes then buy one. If you prefer the 360’s exclusives, buy one.

    It is laughable the loyalty some show towards their consoles, if the shoe was on the other foot and the 360 had a blu ray drive and was bringing out GT5 this year (Supposedly), I would buy one.

    Personal choice

    I don't think xbox online is any better than ps3 personally. (I own both) but more of my friends play on the xbox 360 because it is cheaper.

    I agree with this. Simplest way to decide is look at the exclusive games you want to play + see which console most of your friends own. Simple.

    maybe spend a minute learning how to search then. It is irritating BTW just like the 'any free AV software out there' etc thats gets posted nearly daily lol

    BTW, I had both but the 360 got sold within a month as its crap as far as a media player goes but good for the games but so is the ps3.

    well the party system is a lot better on the 360, its an absolute hassle to do basic things on the ps3 such as grouping together and joining the same room in a game for example. Also voice chat ¬_¬

    Everyone I know has one and it's very easy to organise a game. I can just look at which of my friends are playing a game I like then just bring up the 360 menu and choose 'join' or if i'm playing send them a game invite. I can also choose party chat if I want only my friends to hear and talk.

    well thank you for actually contributing something topic related.. I apologise for my search shortcomings and for the fact that I seem to have irritated you both so badly.. the last post I found on this subject was over a week ago, so the 'everyday' comment was a little exaggerated

    It's not so much the number of topics just that 360 v PS3 threads end up attracting the 'I like the 360/PS3 because the other console smells like poop' level of discussion.

    Frankly it boils down to 'go where your friends are' and if you have no friends then 'go where the games you like are'.

    See, exactly, I am missing nothing, I have absolutely no intention of speaking to my friends online, infact I purposely go out of my way to avoid them in everyday life, and I have no intention of speaking to irritating people in the real world never mind immature clowns on the online world, not that they all are but you know what I mean. My favourite online feature of the PS3 is the mute button.

    I must have some sort of social phobia lol.. As I have also mentioned before and to be fair online gaming on the 360 is not expensive, and if you want the better online features then I say fair play to you, but the PS3 gaming is free, which is how it should be anyway.

    And as was mentioned the PS3 is a better media player, maybe you only want a gaming machine though.

    Buy what is best for your needs

    There are so many fanboys littering this site.
    The idiots are people like you who can't seem to understand that both consoles have different fetures, making them both a worthwhile choice.
