    Maybe he should re-phrase it to having to buy a lot more stuff(pay to play online), and its not something they advertise outright.

    I heard the smaller ones overheat worse.

    so by that argument the xbox is no longer electricity powered?

    Microsoft gave me a cheque to cover my 1st years power usage. Alot of xbox 360 require no power due to RROD or that other notorious error. I'm a 360 owner btw

    That is harsh, if you find a 60GB it plays PS2 games (like mine), considered selling your kids?

    It's an idea! Aren't 60gb ones like rocking horse sh*t , hens teeth, undated 20p etc etc to find though? Not that I'd be overfussed about playing old games on a next gen console. I am tempted by one.

    Sony don't charge for there online play, Microsoft do. Thats the disagreement here.

    Ethernet Cable? no as you can use Wi-Fi (oh and that's built-in and freeee, unlike some other consoles)

    HDMI Cable? you can pick them up for like a few pounds, wow. plus you have to buy one for the Xbox too.

    Headset? Not everyone needs/wants one. i personally don't want to hear 20 screaming 5 year olds.

    So Congratulations on your Fail, now back to under the bridge you go :thumbsup:

    Dont people remember your paying extra for all of this. Not everyone wants a blu ray player with a game consoles;

    Microsoft make it an optional extra to pay for.

    They do yes, but the games are generally not as good as their Xbox counterparts. Take Ghostbusters for example. :whistling:

    I have no idea what you are talking about with your first line, if you are talking about buying the cables, you only need to spend like a few pounds for a HDMI cable. whereas Xbox 360 players need to buy a play and charge kit, wireless internet adapter, pay for online, pay for a HDMI cable too etc.
    so thats around £100+ extra

    and what are you talking about not everyone wants a blu ray player? that is the only High Definition technology that is in use now, and the best. If you buy it seperately then its £100+
    so yes what you are talking about is the PS3 is better value for money
