In terms of specifications and features, the PS3, in terms of gameplay, (online and offline), types of games etc. the 360.

End of.

Sorry was that "blah, blah, blah, haven't looked at what games have been released this year for both consoles?"

What are these games and gameplay the 360 offers that you just can't get on the PS3?

Spec, features and build quality: PS3

Price and controller: 360

Games: PS3 for exclusives, 360 for sometimes better multi format versions

Online: 360 for quality (just), PS3 for price

Basically if I wanted a cheaper system (for my kids or cash was tight), the 360 every time as it is far better value for money at a little over £100 for the Arcade. If cash wasn't so tight I would get the PS3 or preferably both.

i was an xbox fan boy i even own 2 but for me now its ps3 all the way untill mircosoft stop charging for all the extras i.e for the hard drives, charging cables etc and stop charging to play online then it will be ps3 all the way

xbox is best for people who like playing with children

imortal;5940857

a little bit of both



Now that's my fave mod, can't you buy them from the modder but it costs over £100 per pad (suppose that isn't far of a Wii-mote, Nunchuck and Wiimotion)

All depends what you need from your console. PS3 is far better value if you want all the included items, far worse if you don't. Horses for courses indeed :thumbsup:

Xbox 360 full stop.

PS3 for me, but my mate has the special edition version of the xbox, called rrodxbox. He's had 3 of them so they must be good :whistling:

That sounds incorrect.

Wii's clearly better for multiplayer with children.

Xbox is a far better gamers console.

Features on the ps3 are far better as the first point posted.

But im now purchasing most of my 4 player games on my Xbox 360 to play with my mates because its cheaper for me and them. Resell on xbox is dirt cheap.

Far better choice for a person strapped for cash if your not that bothered with comfort when using online functions (wireless adaptor, headset, etc)

I bought my wii first sold it, as the cost was to much in terms of use. Bought my ps3 still love it , hardly used mainly for blu-ray. Xbox is used for HD and the games im playing atm have been cheaper on the xbox.

Though my xbox has just RROD and gone back to Microshaft.

So hopefully a replacement will come soon.:thumbsup:

Customer service on the PS3 is awesome. Blu-ray drive failed. Had it back in under 2 days.:thumbsup:

yeah but you know you wanna bite :thumbsup:

ps3 all the way, as i've got 2 xbox's and both have rrod!!

Its always been about the games and the quality of the gameplay for me, never understood this fanboy malarky, "Megadrive so whoops SNES" yawn, buy the console and the games you want and enjoy.

I would have a PS3 but for the simple reason I cannot get on with the controllers at all.
So its 360 for me.

I had RROD and I used my PS3 whilst I was waiting for my 360 to come back.

For some reason I just don't play my PS3 much - Uncharted 2 will change all that hopefully.
