    Posted: 10 August 2007 at 1:05pm
So it's an age old debate, and that's not what I'm looking for. I will be purchasing a new console soon and I'm trying to figure out which one.

XBOX360- Has more of an established base, and alot more games, atleast right now. It is also cheaper and easier to come by.

PS3- The "leading Edge", which is costlier but I think it has more potential once people figure out how to exploit it's capabilities. The PS3 doesn't have very many games, but I could play my PS2 games. ( If I'm going to do that, then why buy a PS3 ?)

That's as far as Ive got... either way let me hear your 2 cents.

XBOX360 looks good on any T.V. obviously better on a HDTV. PS3 however to me looks really crappy and grainy on anything but full 1080 resolution. I do like the Blu-Ray player, that ups the value points on the PS3. On the downside theres no vibration.

Besides the demo's at stores I haven't been able to get real seat time with a PS3. Although dead rising and gears of war are GREAT! The 360 is pulling away..

I have both. My Xbox is used almost daily. My PS3 is collecting dust and waiting until the distant day when a game worth playing might potentially come out for it. I dust it weekly. I flipped off the power switch in the back to save electricity. A spider has used the back end of it to secure its webbing between the television and the wall.

I liked Resistance: Fall of Man, but that's about the best the system has had to offer me so far.
I feel that the PS3 has taken such a beating in the market so far that it's going to be tough to get any further off the ground. If Assassin's Creed would come out I'd buy it. The next Final Fantasy is no longer exclusive.

If you want to play games now, Xbox, no question.

I laugh because it's true, and I know it firsthand.

LoL. The comic was prety good.
I'm thinking 360 because like you said I can "play it now" and give the PS3 a little time to warm up. I hope it does, it's almost sad to see Sony getting kicked so hard. So then if I go 360 is the additional cash for the "Elite" worth it? or just go for the premium?

Depends on what you want to do with the hard drive. There is plenty to download, and for me, Final Fantasy XI takes up a buttload of hard drive space. If you want movies and junk get the extra space, or if you've just got the cash.

I wouldn't know if it makes too much of a difference.

Do get an off-console battery charger. Very nice to have.

I won't need the space for downloads as I don't/won't have Xboxlive. And I'm not a fan of Final Fantasy. So eh.. prolly just get the premium and a couple games to start and call it a day.

I'd vote 360, but I don't have either.

Hows the kid doing?

Somebody remembers me?..lol He's good. It's hard to believe he'll be three in November. But I guess that's life. Although I've gotta get into Barney or something. He does what I do: Builds little bombfires (hasn't lit one *YET*), loves fireworks, and loves to shoot my guns (paintball, Air Soft), he's a sweet kid. So I've got to slow down on corrupting him. He also likes the Air Force, so we now out number my wife. He's not going to like it when I leave for BMT, but in life you have to sacrifice.

Why no online play?  PS3 online is free.

360, because the PS3-only games are games I could not care less about.

I brought the 360. IMHO the PS3 is not only over priced, but doomed to go the way of the NEO GEO. FWIW my 360 died 6 weeks after I brought it. Microsoft had a new Xbox at my door a week latter, with a free month of Xobx live for my troubles. They won me over.         & nbsp;

If GTA4 is still slated to be relased on the 360, I don't care too much.

I am in love with my PS3. All of the great games aren't out yet, but I am kept plenty busy. I play Call of Duty 3, Oblivion, and Rainbow Six: Vegas. I also love being able to play online for free. I don't like the idea of having to commit to playing online by paying for it as you do on the 360. Also, if you add up the prices, the 360 and PS3 are about the same when you factor in the 360's cost for XBL and the HD DVD drive. I'm also not positive whether or not the 360 has WiFi, but thats another huge thing I love about my PS3. Running an ethernet from my modem to my PS2 in past years was such a pain.

I vote PS3. And for the games for the PS3, Q4 of this year is looking great. Unfortunately, however, GTA IV has already been delayed.
