Re: xbox 360 or ps3?
If you want to play games online, favor more western style games, and are looking for a larger selection of titles, then the Xbox 360 is probably your best choice.
If you are an avid movie watcher, and have a television that can support 1080p, then the PlayStation 3 will offer you the opportunity to enjoy watching Blu-Ray movies in high definition.
PlayStation 3 is still suffering with lack of developer support. Developers are having a difficult time programing games on the PS3 and games are few and far between. Unless you are a Metal Gear Solid aficionado, most every major game is available on both platforms.
