Gaming thread.


But go with a 360, better games, better online, cheaper.

360

Better in a lot of aspects.
-Comfortable controller
-Huge library of games
-Great online
-Doesn't look like a grill.

Pfft sorry im not one of those people that is going to be consumed by a video game system there bud. I got my Ps3 and im happy with it. I am not a hardcore gamer, Yea its got Metal Gear. Id take metal gear over Halo anyday.

360 is definitely more ass for the cash, but I'd say ditch the games and buy a guitar. You can get alot more out of that. Either that or a hooker.

How does xbox live beat ps3's online? You dont pay for it.


a) you can get a game in like 10 seconds
b) you dont have to put some bull**** ip address in
c) the live games are much better than ps3 alternatives

Ps3's are more $ then 360 but you get what you pay for. I have a Ps3 and love it. I like Xbox 360 also.. its just that since I was a kid I had the PS1, then Ps2 now Ps3.

The ps3 has everything built in. WIfi antena, Bluetooth, HdMi output....etc.
The ps3 has gotten alot better with the updates it has now, it has in game messaging now, wich was a big issue.

Also Ps3 is getting Home soon. Wich is a virtual world where every Ps3 user can walk around and such. google it for more info.

Ps3 may not have as many games as Xbox, but the games we do have are intense. We are getting some wicked stuff soon.


oh ya...Ps3 online is FREE.
#16
it all depends, if you are planning on playing offline then ps3 but if you are going to play alot of online games then 360, sure you pay for live but its worth it, ps3 online is nowhere near as good as live

My friend left his xbox with guitar hero 2 &3, COD4, Gears of War. Guess what im playing? MGO,& COD4 on ps3 lol. I have the option, and I still go with the ps3. I havent even touched the xbox since he left.

Get a 360 for now. If you really want a PS3, wait until there are a LOT more good games for it, or until a price drop.

Man, you gotta look at the big picture...

Success =/= Video Games.

Success == Guitar.

Guitar > Video Games.

It's more fun anyway, so hey, party on, right?

It really all comes down to what games you want to play. If Xbox has the most games that are appealing to you, get it...or vice versa. To be honest, almost all major games (save Halo 3 / Metal Gear 4) are available on both consoles. PS3 is kind of a late bloomer, Sony is slowly catching up to the Xbox in terms of quality.

Well Xbox 360s got more good games, but PS3 has MGS4, and PS3s more powerful so when it comes to multiplatform games PS3 is prob the best, but its real expensive. But 360s often die, at least the old ones do. I have experience

i'd go ps3. the fact is that even if xbox has some better games (i'm not sure what they are since halo is extremely overrated) the 360 has already maxed out. they can't do much more with it. but they've barely even touched the surface of what the ps3 can do.

besides, it's more that just a game system. it's basically the brains of our entire entertainment system. it runs music, movies, you can put an SD card from your camera in and look at pictures, it's one of the cheapest blu-ray players you can get, and oh yeah, it also plays some kick ass games.


the ps3, contrary to whatever the hell G4 was saying after e3, is the future of gaming. the x box is about done. kojima wouldn't put mgs4 on the 360, not because of some allegiance to sony, but because he literally couldn't do the game on the 360. it wouldn't fit on a regular dvd, it needed a blu ray.

and the price difference starts to fall apart when you start paying for xbox live, and all the other ****. you have to pay for an upgrade to get it to use wi fi. that's ridiculous.


so go ps3 (or guitar)
