PS3 or XBox 360?

Which do you prefer?

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I hate the XBox controller layout and feel and the white case but I have to admit that all things considered the XBox is the clear winner. I've always been a fan of Sony PS since it first came out but I think they really screwed up this time or Gates played his cards right this round. I still hope that PS3 will pull through somehow but I've got that sinking feeling it's gonna be a replay of TurboGrafx16...

Well... actually LIVE works the same way as Sony's answer. Sony has something called "Home" but they still have a bit to come to catch up to LIVE. Oh and Sony's version is free but 50$ a year is next to nothing anyway. I'd go with an xbox360 if you're buying now. 5 months from now I'd say the ps3 for the pure fact that Metal Gear Solid will be hitting shelves

I love a lot of Sony's franchises so I'll wait and pickup a ps3 in time. MTGS and Final Fantasy are enough to sell me everytime haha.

I may eventually end up with a PS3 also, but only really for GT5 and Tourist Trophy2 if it ever happens. Price would have to come down for me to see the value at this time.

I just figured out this great thing with my PS3. I networked it to my PC and now I can access all my MP3s, my videos, and my photo albums that are saved on my PC through my HD TV.

Its really freaking cool, especially with the baby pulling out all the CDs outta my CD rack. I'm moving that upstairs and I'll probably never pull out another CD again.

Plus, Unreal Tournament 3 is a PS3 exclusive and its all I've been playing for the past 2 weeks, Online!!!

I like the LIVE aspect of the 360. I do like the PS3, but it's still hell-a more expensive and not as many games....yet.

Xbox is better right now IMO. I was a PS2 guy.. Graphics are about the same right now but rumor is Sony has more untapped potential. Xbox is clearly leading with games. Xbox live is just awesome...

This is all only related to gaming, obviouslly you get the Bluray player with PS3 but can purchase the add on HDDVD drive for the Xbox. Both offer HDMI hook ups.

Booooo! Can you believe Sony lets their users play online for free? What does Live provide for 360 users that its so much better than the play on PS2/PS3? PS3 comes with stuff XBOX doesn't. You get a High Def movie player (don't have to pay an extra $100). You get a wireless card. You have the ability to install an alternate OS. I've even seen a video on YouTube of someone loading Apple OS X onto a PS3.

Are you serious?

It is a no question Pice of garabage that sony has for their "servers"

You cant tell if your friends are online you stick in each and every disk to see if they are playing.

Whereas with Live you can see what they are playing, If you can join them. etc.

PS3's server system compared to Live is like having a special Ed kid fight a UFC champ.

I've played on PS3's(Resistance) servers and PS2's servers (SOCOM). I've never had a problem. No connection or lag problems. If I want to know if my friends want to play, I will call/IM them.

it comes down to this

if you want a gaming system -> xbox 360

if you want a high priced media player -> ps3

so, you will call up your friends, all 2 of them, (jk)


whereas I have my real friends and then my online 360 friends so all I need to do is logon and see immidiately see if they are on or not.

I will change games if some friends are all playing a particular game so we can play together.

Are you kidding me, SoCom on PS2 was a lag fest. Very good game when it worked but..

Do you have Xbox Live....? For $55.00 a year it is well worth it. I would pay $100+ vs. the garbage PS is putting out for free. Isn't the cost of a Xbox with the HD Drive close to the PS3 anyways?

In the end it comes down to games, right now, Xbox rules..

No, a 40GB PS3 is $400. The 20GB 360 is $350 + 100 = $450 but you still don't have a wireless card and you have a 20GB hard drive vs the 40GB that the PS3 comes with.

The $350 system comes with Forza and another game... The base system is $260...

Let me preface this by informing everyone that I have begun working at Volition, the game development company behind Saint's Row, Red Faction, and The Punisher...I have been told by programmers/developers that based on how the hardware is setup any multi-platorm game will look better and preform better on the 360.

Sony has more potential for PS3 specific games. The 360 doesn't allocate any of it's memory to specific place, the PS3 has it partioned into blocks. An individual block is not big enough to support some game engines at full capacity, which is why the 360 will look better.

The 360 can do this too FWIW.

360 FTMFWBBQ!

On a negative note for the 360, I just got GHIII and Forza 2, and my xbox won't turn on. Stupid 3 rings have finally locked it up. Now I got to send it in. Fack.
