I've had an xbox before - but i needed a laptop so i got rid - im not sure which i want.

I'd say that the PS3 is better because although the 360 might have better games out now, it has been out a year longer than the PS3 and by this time next year, I believe there will be better games exclusively on the PS3, for example I like Tekken and Ratchet and Clank games, plus PS3 Home will be coming out early next and that looks to be good. Then there's obviously Blu-ray and other features so I would recommend the PS3 :thumbsup:

Well I voted PS3 just cos we always buy Playstation and never had a Xbox at all before but ideally would like both! I bet Xbox got most votes,voting now!

Wow its close,I didn't expect that.

yh id love to have both as well.

I havent tried the ps3 at all so based on its games i vote 360

Xbox because Sony is double the price.

if i were to get one now i'd get the ps3 i think. gta 4 etc coming out on that, free online . has blue ray and graphics can only get better . doesnt have halo or gears but will have granturismo.

and other things, unless u have charger and rechargables you need a charge kit?
15 quid ps3 comes with. ps3 has wifi (xbox one costs 50 quid or so) xbox online 30 quid a year or so ps3 free.. gta4 on both anyway!

Gta is coming out on 360
Ps3 online is free for a reason (its rubbish in comparison to live)
Blu ray is a format for 3 years down the line not now
Gran turismo is probs ****

As you've said - you've never played a ps3, so how do you know its rubbish?

GTA is coming out on all platforms.

Bluray is now, aswell as HD,

You're being a bit prejudice on GT.

if you have a big screen tv with 1080p blueray will look awesome - although a little pointless on a small tv, i was amazed at how bad dvd looks when scaled up sometimes. as i said gta4 is coming out on both. dont get me wrong, i have a 360 - but if i bought now id probly get a ps3

LOL, pwnd. ;-)

Ive got a ps3, two of my flatmates have live, as a casual gamer who goes online now and then i really cant see how the ps3 has a worse capability.... it seems to play fine, you can have buddies etc.. voice chat, clans, text chat..

Xbox 360, simply because i've got one....

If I had the money i'd have a PS3 though......

I have both and the ps3 is a better machine, although the xbox has a better dashboard and functionality.

My xbox has been back to microsoft twice and it has to go again.

They forever break, use your money wiseley and buy a ps3.

get both and have the best of both worlds

Well, my absolute most antipated games are MGS4, Little Big Planet (youtube it if you dont know what it is) and Team Ico's next game.

Most games are multiplatform, so pick the console with the best exclusives - I think Sony is ahead there (not now, but within the next year). They have the right balance of western and and asian games.

But 360 has some killer apps, like Halo, Mass Effect and Bioshock.

Bizarre Creations (makers of PGR4) have just been bought by Activision so their next game will be multi platform.

Got a 360 which i like halo 3 that came out yesterday looks awesome on HD, have been looking into getting PS3 too though i was looking in the shops and i thought to myself which of these games do i want coz they all look poo atm so i think i'm gonna wait till Final fantasy XIII then get one probably

This is true but Microsoft own the rights to the Project Gotham Racing series so no PGR game will ever turn up on a rival console.Shame for PS3 owners as PGR4 is going to be this years best racing game by a mile I reckon.:)

Yeah, I know PGR is owned by M$, but the next game wont be made by BZ.

Also there is a possibility that Metropolis Street Racer could come back. But their next game is 'The Club', dont know much about is though.

What does anyone think to the Wii -interested to know as might get one of these now.

I think that the Wii is excellent and it has some superb and unmissable games on it especcially coming out in the next few months such as Super Smash Bros: Brawl, Metroid Prime 3, Mario Kart Wii and Super Mario Galaxy. These game are sure to be great but it depends on how much of a 'hardcore gamer' you are, because there are games on the other 2 consoles that are going to be completely different and much better on the other consoles than the Wii such as football games and theres also going to be huge games that come out on the other 2 consoles but not the Wii, such as GTA4. If you are just a casual gamer or new to gaming then I would definitely recommend the Wii. If you are a 'hardcore gamer' then I would still say the Wii is a must-have but you may also need to buy one of the other consoles as well the Wii, and I am hoping to get a PS3 soon so that I can play games like Burnout, Tekken, Pro Evo etc :-D

360 for me, it has a strong games library already (many older but good titles can be picked up cheap) and plenty more to come whereas the PS3 still seems to be struggling, most recommendations for the PS3 in this thread are based on what's coming not what's out now.

In the end, the deciding factor is games - if the games you prefer are PS3 only then clearly there's little point in picking up a 360 and vice versa.

But these consoles are probably going to be used for around the next 7 years possibly so it's more important to look for games that are still to come rather than which console has the better library at the moment, plus the Xbox360 has been out for an extra year so it is bound to have a bigger catalogue. But I do agree with your point about which console to pick being dependent on which console is better for the kind of games you like :thumbsup:

Not really as there's no reason to assume the 360 isn't going to continue to have a strong games library. Furthermore there's no guarantee about the quality of future games, if I was interested in these I would wait until they were actually out and buy a PS3 then especially as it's probably going to cheaper at that point.

I have had both. I never liked the 360 much, but never did take it online. I only actually kept it for about a month.

I have a PS3 now, online is great, best of all it's free. I don't know why people say it's 'rubbish', a lot of thought went into Resitance online and has excellent features.

Why do I say get a PS3? Because you get to play with me!

Minds made now anyway - PS3:)

PS3!

Purely because i dont like Xbox controllers.

It was me that swayed you, wasn't it?

I've heard Sony have started using me as an advertising mechanism.

Now, not only can dirty old men in the woods play with JDeal - but you can too!

good choice you wont regreat it. especially as unreal tournament 3 will be coming out on ps3 in november and will be out on 360 in 2009.

i think id go for PS3.....

360 all the way, ps3 is way to expensive for what it is, I know it has blue ray, but at the end of the day its still packaged as a games machine, and 360 pulls that off alot better then ps3 at the moment. With time and games companys learning to get the best out of the ps3 and 360 we will see the best games towards the end of a consoles life.

Will be getting a ps3 at some point, don't need one yet, and certainly don't feel like dropping £350odd atm.

supposed to be a cheaper PS3 comin, which may make the decision between the two more difficult, as a lot of people buy 360 as PS3 so bloomin' expensive. but bioshock and halo3 xbox (&pc) only, otherwise I have seen a PS3 in action with Resistance and BluRay Casino Royale and I keep swaying on the fence...PS3 gets cheaper just might sway me away from 360.
Just point out bought a PS1 on launch day at £300 no game...those were the days, no kids and money to burn.
Oh, and I have wii...absolutely love it Resi 4 GREAT and metroid in a couple of weeks...can't wait.

was ps1 really 300 at launch?

should of got a 360, but at the end of this month! oh well

yep, think it might of even been £400 or something daft.

Probably £300, and I'm sure I paid £300 for my PS2 too

I'd go for a PS3.

Have a 360 the now, except thats its away getting fixed. If i'd known they were so prone to failure i wouldnt have touched it.

And price-wise, the 360 ends up more expensive when you add in all the parts that you need.
