Should I get an 360 or PS3 ???
 
Okay well I think it's time for me to go ahead and step my Video Game status up a bit. I have a Wii and all but that doesn't count. I've been loyal to Sony but the 360 is so tempting. F'n Halo !

So I'm thinking about the PS3 because of Blu-Ray and I want to say that I read that Microsoft was coming out with another XBox soon. So can you help me out on which one I should go with ?

Thanks

Personally, I'm going 360. I just havent been impressed with the PS3 thus far.

If you like gaming with potentially thousands of others on an incredible network...360 is the way to go. If you want to watch Blu Ray movies...go with the PS3.

ive got a 360 (that's taken a shit on me on 2 different occasions) I'm going to get a ps3, pretty soon. My father in law has one and I like it a lot. I'm not as fond of the controller layout, but gameplay, graphics, sound, and overall hardware seems superior.

I have had a terrible time getting the blutooth headset to work in gameplay on the ps3

So basically all the PS3 has that is better than the 360 is the blu-ray thing ? See I don't know if there is going to be another XBox to come out in the next year or was the Elite one the newest ? And along with that if I go Xbox do I want the upgrade or am I fine with the regular one ?

I think the blue ray, hdmi support, built in wifi, and bluetooth make it a far superior set of hardware. The xbox live community is nice, though. I'm not sure what "home" will offer from playstation... It looked nicer than live on the demos

I think the big question is what kind of games you are going to be playing and whether you plan to play those games online or not.

I think the biggest deciding factor should be what type of games you are into. If you prefer more American style first person shooters and multiplayer games, Xbox is far superior. It's got better exclusives and superior online service. If you are more interested in Japanese RPG's and one-player story based games - think Final Fantasy 13 or Metal Gear 4 - then PS3 is the better bet.

As far as the technology goes, PS3 is theoretically the better system, although developers haven't come close to harnessing that potential and there is a lot of doubt that they will ever truly be able to. Most games released for both systems look better on XBOX imo but I think that gap is narrowing.

Get an Xbox. My opinion is a little biased but I'm not impressed with the PS3 or home. Not to mention the console exclusive titles. If you get a ps3 you will NEVER play Gears of war or Halo.

Well I do like the American Style of RPG's. I do like Metal Geat but F'N HALO IS THE SHYT !!!! I play Madden of course and of course I'd play Halo. Grand Theft is on the XBox as well. So I guess the XBox will be my choice. I guess I can get a Blu-Ray player in due time. Thank you all for your help I think the 360 is going to be my choice. Should I go with the 512 MB for $349.99 or the 120 GB for $449.99 ?

I'n guessing the 512 will be fine but just wondering what opinions you all may have of them.

Heres the breakdown for the core and premium:

And heres the specs for the Elite:

Personally I have the 20gb, but the Elite wasn't around when I got mine. 120GB would be overkill for me since I dont download any games on my hard drive from online or store any music or videos. I wouldn't recommend the 512mb though. If I remember correctly its just a memory card so if you're playing Madden or any other game that requires a lot of memory you will fill it up in no time. Good luck with it.

i really like my 360, but I want a hi def dvd, so i'll buy the ps3 because blu ray won out that battle, and its within a couple of hundred bucks of the ps3 anyway.... may as well just get one...

plus the 360 keeps dying on me with that ring of light garbage. I'm a gta nut, and havent even seen the game yet because 2 days before it came out the xbox went dead...

My 360 has never died. While playing assassins creed i use to let it run all night.

Does that make me lucky?
