If it were me, I'd get the 360 but that's only because all my friends have one so we would be able to play Live.

40gig PS3, in my opinion, is a HUGE waste of money. There's no memory card port and no backwards compatability, meaning you'll be stuck with the (currently) dire selection of games.

Xbox 360 has better online play, as well as a better, wider selection of games.

I'd go with the Wii, if any of the newer consoles. It's such a blast with a bunch of mates over.

Personally I would go with the 360, but next year I'll buy one and my roommate will buy the other, so we don't have to worry.

I'd recommend finding a sixty gig so that you can play ps2 games on them as well.

-Sure, 360 has more games, it's been out longer. However, all the games on PS3 I've played have blown me away. Heavenly Sword? Amazing. Lair? Breathtaking. Skate? Pure ecstasy. Resistance? Great online play. Every one loves Ratchet and Clank. There's enough games out there to last me till new ones come out.

-A bunch of new games are coming out, this month is going to rock. Assassins creed, Haze, Uncharted, to name a few.

-Free online play

-They ran a test running the PS3 in 120 degree heat for 108 hours, then the same in 0 degree heat. Worked fine. It'll last you forever.

-Built in wifi

-BluRay
-don't need batteries for controllers, sixaxis controllers (awesome with lair and heavenly sword)

i dunno someone brought that up, i was just explaning what backwards compatability meant
#31
I'd say the 360...I'd wait to see if PS3 develops more, and wait for a few games that you definitely want that is exclusive to the PS3. Otherwise, assuming you don't WANT to waste money, I'd go with the 360.

The thing is, games on PS3 are on BluRay disc. That holds 50 gigs. The developers for Assassins Creed said they were having trouble fitting everything on the disc for the 360.
The 360, sure, it has more games. It's been out longer. Keep in mind though, that the PS3 is just as far along as the 360 was at that point. The PS3 exclusives I've played so far were to die for. I loved them. Also, the PS3 will soon be able to play PC games.

For some games, online play is better on the 360. Like, you have a lobby in Rainbow six vegas on the 360, but don't on the PS3 version. Things like that. OH!!!! I can't believe I forgot!!!

Warhawk. Pure online, Pure awesome. Such an amazing game. Everyone I've heard who has it can't shut up about how amazing it is.

so ud recommend saving a bit for and getting the 60gig, PC games soon, thats awsome,( and is the only thing that is different between the 40 gig and 60 is that the 40 gig basicly cant play ps2 or 1 games?

Just with the 60 gig, you can play the most massive library out there, being PS2 games, because there's bound to be plenty that you'd love. And keep in mind, there are plenty of PS3 games coming soon. Even as early as this month.

Edit: Ah!! Motorstorm as well. Unbelievable.

First of all, the 60GB PS3 has backwards compatibility,
meaning you'll be able to play about 100% of your ps1 and ps2 games. It also has 4, usb ports so two people can be playing at the same time, and you can charge your ipod or do
something else with the two left. Another cool feature is that it has a memory card reader, so if you own a digital camera, you can watch your pictures on your tv, or transfer them to the ps3 hard-drive.

Now, the 40gb, has.....
no backwards compatibility, so you cant play any ps1 or
ps2 games.
and only has two usb ports, and no memory card reader.
So,...the 40gb ps3 is for those people who dont have, or dont plan on playing their old ps2 games. and dont have a digital camera, of course you can still do it, with a usb-flash drive.
