Sell 360 to get PS3?
 
I have a Xbox 360 and a Wii. Because of the price drop of the PS3, I'm seriously considering selling my 360 to get a PS3. The only real game that 360 has is Halo. But that's over, and I'm already basically tired of Halo 3. PS3 also has a Blu-Ray player, and with the usual better graphics and stuff.

Any thoughts or opinions?

BTW - I also have around $150 in gift cards for Best Buy, so I would lose little to no money.

Are you serious? 360 has way more games, and better ones, and to me, the graphics look better than PS3's.

PS3 is the biggest flop in the history of consoles, Playstation 2 is STILL outselling playstation 3, the console is a ripoff.

X-Box360 on the other hand is a great buy, tons of good games, if you don't have a good PC gaming rig the x-box360 is vital, especially if you want to play sportsgames. 2k8 All Pro Football is a great example, supposed to be the best football game in the past 10 years.



Seriously, don't get the PS3, when I saw this thread I thought it was a joke, despite the PS3 having uglier graphics, it will chug any time there's more than 4 things on the screen. It is amazingly bad.

I did the exact opposite, sold my PS3 for a Xbox360 and it was one of the best decisions I've made in my entire life. Seriously, the online experience on the Xbox is impeccable (haven't had any issues thusfar) and the number of good games is way bigger. Graphics schmaphics, don't really care about that, they both look good anyways. I used to be a Sony fanboy, but they seriously disappointed me there.

If you're going to sell your 360 for a PS3, at least wait a year or so when the PS3 has more games out and the price drops.

don't kid yourselves fellas. sony owns. the track record is there. been doing it since ps1. understand the ps3 is barely a year old in the market. the games will come, and they will come. why make a console with no games?:confusedshrug: they have the same contracts, same exclusives. patience is virtue.

still haven't mentioned the blu-ray player, the best dvd format out there.

ps3 > 360

When PS3 dominates 2008, people will wish they didn't hate on Sony. People make it seem like PS3 is in "it's prime" and it's this bad. It hasn't even begun to show what it can truly do.

It's only a matter of time.

Short answer: Don't get the PS3 yet. Wait for it the price to drop and more games to come out

I'm very happy getting an Xbox 360. Only had it for a couple weeks but really enjoying it.

Did you know that HD for Xbox 360 has the same quality as Blueray for PS3? This has been reported in tech reviews and is a fact. I don't know why people still think PS3 has better quality when it doesn't. :confusedshrug:

No it doesn't

PS3 supports HDMI 1.3 with true color support.

ps3 > 360

Nintendo had a track record too before they came out with a POS N64. You never know what happens a year later but Sony's clearly got an uphill battle.
