I would go for the ps3. Check out a game called little big planet. It's different, but looks to be very promising. Btw my friend bought a 360 about a month ago and it broke the second day he had it. It scratched his oblivion disk too, but he took it back to wal-mart and got another one. Whichever one you get, make sure you buy rock band. It will be like the greatest game ever.

Someone pointed out that with the drum controller you buy, and the MIDI creator included with Rock Band, you could create your own background tracks to go with a guitar recording tool like your POD. Wouldn't be worth the money (just buy a damn drum set lol), but an interesting bonus if you actually want the game.

I love the fact that you'll be able to drum in rock band. It adds a whole new dimension to guitar hero. As for the singing, I can't wait to completely obliterate the scream in won't get fooled again.

My friends 360s bother me.  Very noisy.  One of them randomly turns off, no one will be by it, then it goes off.  Randomly flashes red.  Just, very odd.

Yeah, that is one thing I also noticed. My friend brought his 360 over on night to play Gears of War on our HDTV, and I noticed the whole time we were playing that you could hear the console humming real loud.

^The Elite versions doesn't do that. The Elite version is very quite.

also look into getting an intercooler system, its better to listen to small hum then a noisy fan.

It's pretty common knowledge that 360 Intercoolers are deadly.

OK I just watched th AOTS special on it if people are stupid enough to leave a 360 on for so long and let it overheat it mostly their fault. I'm not saying Microsoft shouldn't fix this but if you leave your console on for more then 4 hours what do you expect? I mean I've never played more than maybe 3 hours so when I get my 360 I'm guessing I wont be seeing much red.

4 hours isn't a terribly long amount of time to leave your console on man. Ever had friends over, or played over Live?

Or better yet-buy Oblivion. Then you'll know what long is...

Anything's long if you get a bad Box...

It's funny, I left my PS2 on for four months one time, didn't even realize it. Switched it off, gave it to my friend, and he's still playing it a year later. I guess QA has changed alot as of late...
