Microsoft has a Platinum Hits line of games for $29.99 (you won't see greatest hits for $19.99 any longer — games under this price are clearance/budget releases) PS3 greatest hits are priced the same at $29.99

Also, there are some games that are PS3 exclusive. Is GOWIII coming out for the XBOX 360? I don't think it is, which sucks.

If you want to stick to sports games and play God of War, then your best bet would to be to get a PlayStation 3. Also if you enjoy movie watching, you can enjoy Blu-ray high definition…

OF NOTE, if you wish to play games from the PlayStation 2 library, you will need to seek out an older model, such as a 20GB or 60GB which offer 100% flawless backwards compatibility, or an 80GB console which will offer software emulation backwards compatibility. 40GB consoles (currently only model being manufactured new as of now) does not allow the play of PlayStation 2 games.
