I'm waiting to see whether the ps3 or 360 best matches my gaming preferences.

Not long ago I was leaning towards 360, but the ps3 is catching up in leaps and bounds.

Get a 360. There isnt really anything better about the PS3. There arent any exclusive games that are going to be for it.

Xbox 360 all the way. The 360 has: Halo 3, Bioshock, The Orange Box, Gears of War, etc. What does the PS3 have? Drake's Fortune, Resistance: Fall of Man, and that's about it.

What about games in the future? 360 has been out longer hasn't it? Maybe PS3 has a better future...?

Well, first off BluRay won the format wars just recently so the 40Gig PS3 is also one of the cheaper bluRay players right now. But really for gaming purposes its all about what games you like, if your a Metal Gear fan, a Gran Tourismo fan or an FF fan (all of those being the few remaining PS exclusives) than get the PS3. If you like Halo and Gears of War more get the Xbox.

wireless internet

superior blu-ray play equiv. of one that costs £600+

some nice graphics

wireless controllers

quiet

burnout paradise, call of duty 4 etc etc

will destroy the 360 in the end due to sony domination and the massive general failings of microsoft - i.e already has a costly obselete hd player

when you can afford one, get one - even just for the blu ray!!!

Metal Gear Solid 4.
what happened to the proposed Kirk Hammett flamenco album?


His acoustic didn't sound good with wah pedal, I suppose.
#15
Resistance: Fall of Man.

A GREAT PS3 game.

Metal Gear Solid 4.

The best console game of 2008.

Get a PS3. It's better in everyway.

not yet, its out on 06/12/2008, got it marked on my calendar and everything.

Oh yes and i forgot the infemous 360 red light of death where the system tells you when its broken, but it really isn't because you can actually still get it to run and play games with the towel trick. So ****ing stupid.

Not yet, should be out June 12th all around the world. No more NTSC/PAL/JAP versions (on most games)

And I own one. It's good. Just waiting for GTA IV, FF XIII, MGS4 and Rock Band (european version). Buy it. No red ring of death

Were you one of those people that spent $3000 on a DVD player? Give it a couple years and you'll be able to get a Blu-Ray player for $20, just like the DVD players. Hell, I remember seeing DVD players being given away with purchases of packs of water.

Half the things you listed are for the 360 too...

Hmm lets see:
PS3:
- MGS4
- Resistance
- Warhawk
- Resistance 2 (60 player online)
- Socom Confrontation
- GT 4
- God of War 3
- littlebigplanet
- Final Fantasy
- Killzone 2
- Uncharted

Xbox 360:
- Halo 3
- Gears of War (on PC as well)
- Gears of War 2 (probably will be released on PC)
- Mass Effect


All exclusives already out or coming out in 2008/2009. Take your pick.

haha, almost - but yeah its a very good blu-ray player

more importantly, its built in and WILL survive the format war - arguably varying quality in each format....

give it 3yrs and 360 will love the dust
#28
I heard you can play PS3 online for free. Is that true? Is it good to go online and play straight out of the box? Is the 40gb version missing anything important?

But it's the half the 360 doesn't have that makes the ps3 a bit more attractive.

360 leads with games right now because it has been out far longer, it's really just a matter of time before the ps3 catches up in that stake, and the price of the ps3 is dropping all the time.

Fishyesque is quite good at persuading of the Ps3's potential.

People need to stop calling HGS 4 the greatest game of 2008. It's not even out yet, you have no clue how it will be. The 360 has a 3 year warranty, so it's not too big of an issue if it red-rings. Xbox-live is by far the better online service. Plus, it has a cheaper price.

Yeah it's free. 40gb version doesn't support PS2 games, otherwise it's pretty much the same as the rest.

Yes, but $100 for a wifi adapter? Honestly.

Also, being able to swap out whatever 2.5" hard drive you want in 5 minutes is a plus.

Everything hardware wise is superior. I'm sorry, it's just true. I've said it a billion times, the 360 is superior in it's online aspect and the amount of games. That's it.

As for me, the PS3 has everything. I have linux on my PS3. I use Blu-ray. I use remote play, and watch The Office when I'm away from home on my PSP via PS3. It does everything, and has the single greatest MLB franchise in MLB The Show. Uncharted is amazing. It has plenty of games out to keep me busy until the system sellers come out. Home is just about here, and when it comes out, the 360 will no longer have their online aspect as an advantage.

Linux does sound tempting, but I like my 360. I use a wired connection, so it doesn't matter to me. Games are what counts on a console, and so far, the 360 has taken that category by storm.

I hope I'm not coming off as a fanboy, I just figure everyone seems to be misleading here. The facts are this. The 360 has more games, and a better online service. Home is almost here, and when it does, a couple things can happen. Either it'll be an insane hit, and all of a sudden the free online service is better than XBL, it'll be ok, and will be even with XBL, or it'll suck. You look it up, and you'll see it's likely to be one of the first too.

And with the games, the big thing for me is that almost every awesome 360 game comes out for the PC. The PS3 has PLENTY of awesome games for me.
