    PS3 slimline or xbox 360 elite?

    I already have a xbox 360 but its coming up to 2 years old in December. I've just seen the fantastic deals on play and the hut with the new ps3 for £250 including 2 games and the xbox elite for £185. I just can't decide which one to get.

    I am planning on selling this 360 because chances are it will die on me and I'll wish I had got an elite when they were going cheap. But now I'm wondering if perhaps the ps3 would be better.

    You only need an BRAND NEW 80GB PS3 no need for a slim really
    Pay £10 and you get a blu-ray player, bluetooth, reliability, WI-FI, free online, rechargeable controllers included.

    Its personal preference really, if youre going to be using the console to play online a lot x360 is the better option. I you're more of a single-player person and think you would make use of the blu-ray get a ps3. The online is OK for ps3 but nothing compared to x360. Also the ps3 has a lot more standard features than the x360 (wi-fi, bluetooth, rechargeable controllers, free online)

    xbox360 by far....PS3 is good....but would have to go for the 360 elite if i could.

    Keep the 360 for a few months, and you'll be googling it.

    Xbox 360 as it acutally has decent games

    Ps3 dont belive the hype YES it has blu ray but only 1 or 2 decent games

    I'm not really a film person, but maybe I would be if I had a blu ray player. are blu ray films that impressive?

    Also I hate the xbox's new interface menu, I liked the old one better.

    PS3 has bluray so if you want to watch films get that.
    If you want to play games then get a 360.

    Just been browsing ps3 games and they seem to be same as you get for 360 ie COD4.

    Many games are cross platform, some are exclusive - it really depends on what games you're wanting to play and also what console any online people you play with have.

    you cant beat xbox live though - if you want to make friends online and have the social aspect online get the 360 - if you want to play online but no interact with anyone and have a limited service get a ps3 -- i have both but ps3 is pants online YES its free but for a reason

    I think I'll stick with the 360.

    I like games like Oblivion, do PS3 do any like that?

    Yeh they have oblivion - whats best to do imo is have a look at play.com and pick out the games you want to play that are out and ones that are soon to be released - then get rid of the ones that are cross platform and look at the exclusives

    Yes obilivion is on there and apparently PS3 is the best for RPGs aint it with the japanese games?

    I find PS3 have a bigger variety of games.
    LittleBigPlanet
    Metal Gear Solid 4
    MAG
    Uncharted/2
    Killzone 2
    Gran Turismo 5

    Ps3 is cheaper (counting live, wireless adapter and all the other crap you have to buy for it) and better games MGS4, KZ2, GT5, LBP etc. etc. It is more reliable and has a blu ray player. I have both and can honestly say the PS3 is the better console.

    That's a bit of a daft argument as many people have both but don't consistently prefer one, of the two I prefer the 360 but I don't for a moment think it's automatically the better console. The most important aspect to me is the games, that's what I buy the consoles for so I see little point in choosing a console based on other parameters if it doesn't have the games you want to play.

    I think I would use it more for the games.

    I've ordered the xbox elite.

    Of the two I prefer the 360, main reasons been the fact there's more exclusives and there's a great atmosphere on live. It feels lonley playing a PS3 game !

    The PS3 is great for media capabilities and it also has it's own decent exclusives. PSOnline is free but it's not a patch on live in my opinion. The PS3 is better value.

    I'm sure you'll be happy with either !

    :thumbsup:

    I would've went for the PS3 especially if you still have a 360 then get a refund if you didn't like it

    i will be getting a ps3 purely for GT5 :lol:

    And you bum microsoft, you even have their customer number off by heart well you would seeing as you need to issue repairs so often. :thumbsup:

    I have both consoles mate. The PS3 online is CRAP I don't use it. 360 has good online and is much more user friendly and is more comfortable and the only 360 exclusive I like is GTA Lost and Damned :thumbsup:.

    Because I don't have many friends who have PS3 I don't need a good online so I only ever play single-player which the games are of my taste that's the reason why I like my PS3 and also the web browser comes in handy.

    How do i bum Microsoft? I know their number because i have more than 1 xbox 360 console and yes they do have faults. At least i aint been banned for gamerscore boosting.

    Are you just bitter coz u got banned from XBOX and you got scammed for one

    Having both, for me it's a case of.


    gaming = xbox 360
    media = ps3

    If you do not intend to use the media aspect of the ps3, I would not waste you money if you already have a xbox. If money is tight or you are not a massive gamer, and don't fancy many of the exclusives.

    I personally use my xbox for 95% of my gaming, and only ever play exclusives on the playstation.
