PS2 >>> Everything else.

Theres still so many games to play on it.


But if you are talking about the new ones then yeah X360 - based on the games released, but the PS3 has a better future line up for me.

ps3 online play will never rival xbox live in my eyes.

PS3, have many fun hours online with Resistance.

There is no best console simple as that...everyone will always have their preferences as each machine offers different advantages.

Personally rather than worry about which console people think is best, I just enjoy the games regardless of platform.

Umm...PS3 network is free.

The Best console is PS3 no doubt about it, doesn't necessarily mean it's the best buy though.

PS3 is lacking games, although many top and exclusive titles are on the way. The 360 on the other hand has a bigger number of games and Halo 3 round the corner while the Wii's just plain fun.

If you're a hardcore gamer then it has to be PS3 or 360, now which one of those you get (well both obviously if you're truly hardcore, lol) depends of whether you have the patience to wait for PS3 to catch up - and make no mistake it will catch up, there's no way Sony will let it fail and they have much much deeper pockets then Microsoft.

If you're just a casual gamer then PS2 or Wii are the best options that will give the most fun per £.

Also it's worth noting with the 360 vs PS3 price, to get all the bolts ons for 360 (HD-DVD etc.) for it to compete on a hardware level with PS3 it will actually cost you more than a PS3...but that's only really relevant if you're likly to buy the extras.

I would say xbox 360, obviously its my own personal preference, and the ps3 has a long way to go, but i still prefer the 360...

What i like about the 360 is you customize it how YOU want it, not how the company wants it. With the 360 you can just buy a core, and for some people that will be it, just £150 and you have a next gen console. If you wanted xbox live, pay an extra £30, or a HDD, extra £50...same with HD DVD player etc - not many people have them at the moment, so theres no point forcing the customer to buy one built in.

With the ps3, your stuck at £400 buying everything, even if you are not able/wanting to use most of it, so it could be a lot cheaper - i mean lots of people wont need 60gb of space. Especially now they have scrapped the 20gb core in uk...

Graphics are identical - but i guess its personal preference

The topic is "What's the best console out now?"

I have no idea how the PS3 can even be considered the best as of right now. I don't care about whether it can play HD-DVD's, Blu Ray or shine my shoes. I judge a games console by it's games.

The 360 has the better games out at the moment. The PS3 has maybe 2 or 3 good games. What the PS3 is lacking at the moment is exclusives, the majority of it's games can be seen on other consoles.

Also don't mention hardware. The PS3 is more powerful than the 360, but only slightly. But the 360 has been found by developers the easier console to develop games for.

Both the 360 and the PS3 still have a way to go. No game has fully utilised what the console is capable of.

The PS3s game library will get bigger, it will get better and they should be getting some great exclusives. But that wasn't the topic.

I will buy a PS3 eventually. Just when it's different enough to justify me buying another console.

i soon will have all 3 once wii arrives then will say so far 360 due to games soon gona be ps3 if titles are to be released

JDeal

ps3 has potential and will beat all consoles just wait a few months and it will have all the top games including gta 4 pro evo 7 warhawk and also the ps3 has the best hardware.

Why did you ask the question then?

I'm waiting for the Nintendo "revolution"

No wonder they called it a wii, It takes the pee!!!!!!!!!!

Nah, Its a good console but needs the graphics updating!!!

You get what you pay for with Xbox live.

John

what do u mean graphics updating nintendos games are supposed to be like that cartoony fun. Like my ds and psp i prefer my ds anytime. The psp i just use it for movies now.

I'd just like to see Nintendo produce a graphic fantastic console, They used to rival Sony and sort of Microsoft with the gamecube.

I like the Wii though, Its good, I just think it could've been better.

With xbox live charging people,it eliminates 75% of (annoying) kids playing online

At about £3 quid a month at most, I think even a kid can afford XBL!!

Electron?, Play.com?

Or parents card maybe?

With so many games being multi format 360 will be best, at least im not hearing silly arguments like fanboys on other boards saying "PS3 is cheaper than 360" or "if MGS4 comes out on 360 it will be on mulitple discs" or "the ps3 has a bigger hard drive" etc lol

If only

At least the support is there to eliminate people you don't want to play with and build up groups of people you do want to play with.

Just wanna say xbox 360! FTW also you can now get it a HD DVD player for £100 soo 360 is goooooood

Also PSP is amazing! Have it downgraded to 1.5 and its sweeeeet! watch movies play games and have a 8gb card!! :thumbsup:

Hehe, love the passion this sort of discussion brings out.

I agree with most of what's been said, IMHO the 360 is certainly the best option for hardcore gamers at the present time.

However I don't agree with the 'PS3 is only slightly more powerful' argument, it's a lot more powerful - the developers are very excited by how much more - but it's consequently a more complex beast and harder to code for. It will take time to see the PS3 at it's best. The PS3 release titles look on a par with the 360 titles out at that time, however just look at the newer 360 titles like Gears of War etc. compared to the release titles like Kameo and co, now imagine what the PS3 will do given the same amount of time to develop.

I must say I've not been on a ps3 online, I'm pressuming you can download download demo's, additional content, vidoes etc etc like you can on XBL

As far as i'm aware you can't do much at all on the PS3 online! Correct me if i'm wrong but there is no chat facility to talk to the other gamers you are playing against until September i believe! That really takes the added dimension of online gaming away if you ask me, just my opinion of course and it will always be user preference. I have played both and as i own an xbox 360 im going to stick with that! The PS3 is still just as good though and will get even better with time

yes you can download demos, games and other stuff liek that through the playstation store.

Best console out is the Xbox 360 at the min , no doubt about it..!, I have both the 360 & PS3, I spend 85 % of the time i spend playing games on the Xbox. And before i get called a fanboy this is my first Xbox console, never had the first one, I did have a PS2 though, I enjoyed that more than i do the current Playstation :thumbsup:

definitely xbox 360

depends what you want the console for.... wii is definitly more fun to playt casually and is much cheaper

if youre more serious youre gonna have a hell of a choice between ps3 or xbox360
technically speaking ps3 is better,,(which is reflected in its price tag)
however 360 does have better games out

i was going to get a ps3,,, then i changed to xbox 360 now i cant decide

it would be a 360 if i didnt love metal gear solid
note: expected ps3 price cut october
