Xbox 360º or PS3?

Postby Chachijoe75 on Fri Nov 23, 2007 9:15 am

Ok, so I am thinking about getting a new console. My last one was the original Xbox and had a great time with it. Any people out there with these consoles? I don't care too much about the different DVD format. Game play, games and grfx is most important.

Any suggestions?

PS3.

Ive seen both up close, and think the Ps3 is the better unit.

The biggest + is the blu-ray capability, but you said that didnt matter. I prefer the feel of the controller in my hand, and smoothness of graphics. Loading time is a downside, but its really not that much longer than the 360. Both are sweet systems, but if you go 360, your best to get it new, because of all the problems they had with older units.

Ps3 is down to 399.00 and a new new core 360 I think is is around 250, so its still quite a bit cheaper, but like I said thats probably mainly because of the blu-ray player. However consider that Microsoft has plans for a high def movie player (blue-rays not as superior competitor, but still pretty darn good) for a cost which will likelt put you over the new Ps3 cost if you got it when it comes out.

I've got the PS3 and like it. Better/more games are starting to roll out now so things are looking up. The 360 has a ton more games right now (due to the extra year of being out) but I think the PS3 is going to be the superior system in the future. Blu-ray is sweet, even though you say you don't really need it, but once you watch a good blu-ray movie, you won't want to watch a regular DVD again.

If you don't care about playing ps1 or ps2 games on it, pick up the 40G unit for $399 (many good bundles available now). Otherwise you'll need to find a 60G or 80G. The 40G doesn't have the card readers and isn't backwards compatiable.

Xbox360 = 33% failure rate

PS3 = >1% faliure rate

Gran Turismo 5 is going to be freakin' sweet! Graphics are awesome!

It's 6 of 1, half a dozen of the other. Personally, I say PS3, it's the superior hardware, has the better cpu and gpu, and it's only a matter of time before developers really take off with the SixAxis technology.

I have a PS3 and LOVE IT! I just picked up Ratchet and Clank tonight. If you need to try out the system, let me know. Swing buy, check out the tank, drink a couple beers, and game it up. 8)

Oh Yeah,

PS3, i played couple games over at my cousins place who has it, just amazing graphics. And he has it hooked up to his router, the ps3 can acess all the media on his computer, movies, music all without having to copy them over and can play them from there..

I saved myself a bunch of money concerning the two systems - hand shadows on the wall.

If you have kids/friends who you like to play games with its a great choice, and a ton of fun though it has the worst graphics of any of the modern systems (almost last gen graphics). That said, I love mine, and it was my first choice of the new systems (I have had a blast with zelda on it)

Personally I would take the 360 over the ps3, after playing with my roomates ps3 for a while I thought it was nice, but was not blown away by any of the games I tried out for it. That said, there are some good games out right now on the system, but I feel like with microsofts new strategy of getting lots of exclusive content, such as large areas in GTA, available only on the 360 and bringing in games that were previously only on sony systems may make the 360 a better choice. The game lineup is looking better on the PS3, but it will be a while before it matches the 360s lineup, at least from my viewpoint.
