Im getting as many PS3's as I can just so I can rip off, i mean sell as best i can on ebay. My parents are actually letting me use their credit card to buy up to 3 PS3's for re sale.
Wait 2-3 months and you'll find them on ebay for $300-400, but right away that would be the thing to do.

gobb who was that on this board that said he waited outside with his uncle for xbox and had a story with loopholes throughout the whole thing?Or were you involved in that topic?

Sorry man, it just made you sound like you were 12. It's a good gameplan. You'll easily make $600 on the whole deal.

Sports games will be the same on both systems.

So just look at which exclusive games you prefer. Halo and Ninja Gaiden or Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy.

Halo 3 makes this decision very easy. i'd take it over the top 5 ps3 games that we know of.

plus you got bioshock, gears of war, too human, splinter cell 4.

Well by the time the PS 3 comes out(not sure when that is) 360 will obviously be much cheaper, it already is. Also 360 has more games out so you get a better selection.

I like the games for Xbox better(mainly Halo).

PS3 is going to be superior hardware wise (and with graphics), but both systems have some great developer contracts. you can't really make a bad decision i guess.

me? im getting the Nintendo Wii above all things. their mindset is the same mindset that Atari had in 1983 and that Nintendo had with the NES in 1986.

fun gameplay>>>>>>> awesome graphics 10 times out of 10. very rarely do both meet at the same time.

So many people are trying to preorder then sell on ebay. My friend is doing that, gonna sell it on ebay for $1,000. I'm not interested in all that hassle.

Someone made a good point about the new releases having bugs, call backs, problems and stuff. Honestly? The money isnt an issue to me. I just want the best system. And like i said offline, and online at another board I'm on. The 360 seems to win out. But maybe that is because ps3 has yet to drop and be played, but most of the 360 fans are Xbox fans as well. And a large number simply love the online gaming. In fact most that is all they do is play online.

Ehhh, thanks for the comments fellas.

Where can you order them from? Sony is having a lot of trouble manufacturing enough Ps3s, so there will be a real shortage of them at Christmas. I'll buy one GoRapz style if I can.

Speaing of GoRapz, the sequel to that thread is occuring right now as we speak in the "How many games are you going to go to this year?" thread. Don't miss out.
