Well I mostly play nba 2k8 sim leagues online. And 360 has a way better controller(I have both, PS3 is currently my blu ray player). The online is a lot better currently but it costs 50 bucks a year.

IMO if you can get over the controller and iffy framerates get the PS3 and enjoy the blu ray player and free online. It gets boring playing the cpu in 2k games when you get good

How did it take a step back? Better defense better AI, what killed this game for you? Too hard?

360 is better, better games, controller is better, download demos all the time, XBLA. It's cheaper. JMO. Plus i've sold a PS3 havent sold a 360.

If you're doing it for NBA 2K8 and/or NBA Live 08, I'd advise a 360 then. I do expect PS3 games to at least be on par performance-wise when the '09 games row around for both systems. As far as I remember, most/all sport games right now are running poorly on the PS3 compared to its 360 counterpart because developers slumped on tidying up the PS3 versions, and previously, PS3 games were based on the 360 version. Since transcoding a game from its 360 counterpart to PS3 was noticed as being difficult, overly complex and tedious, developers first and foremost (and should to those that aren't already) create the game on the PS3 then to the 360 as it's much easier.

If you're willing to wait a year, I believe sport games will be fine across all platforms.

Edit: Although honestly, expect to spend a bit extra on a usb fan or something to cool your 360 as precaution for overheating. The 360 I have overheats horribly. If it weren't for the fan, you're talking about 10 minutes of play before the red rings of death happens. Also, it's an absolutely necessary to get the warranty too. Even though Microsoft invested several billions in warranties, merely going through the troubles of customer support can be very annoying depending on who you get (more than likely they'll give you the work around).

Well, at least with Nintendo it's way better. But in the end, it varies between people. But generally, Nintendo's customer support is so much more hassle free. Nintendo > Sony > Microsoft in terms of support.

I got a PS3 and I must say, i'm extremely pissed off at the crappy quality of the last 2 madden games. NBA2k8 seemed to be pretty cool though, I've only played it a few times though.

I do think Blu-Ray is ahead of HD-Dvd at this point... I'm not sure if this trend will continue, but that was a big factor in my reasoning for purchasing a PS3, since i use it for movies more so than game play.

personally, i rather get the 360, cheaper price, better games, and frame rates don't suffer like the games for ps3

only downfall is the reliability sucks for the 360, so better buy that extra warranty..or you can dish out half a grand and get a ps3 and be stuck with 30 fps..

pick ya poison

I've just noticed every where i go to rent/buy a blu-ray disc, Blu-ray usually has HD-Dvd outnumbered 3-1. I think it's super lame that different production companies are choosing one over the other, I just wish they could both Co-exist

OT.

But, although I liked XBOX360 games better, PS3 has Blue Ray and HD. For the 360 you'll have to buy an extra device. That sucks.

Also, buy Call of Duty. It rocks.

The wii is fun too, but only when you have friends.

I have had a great time with Zelda, Mario Galaxy, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, Godfather and Metroid Prime 3 which are all pretty much single player experiences.
