I went with PS3.

PS3 is 399 for the 40g. My package (SM3) came with 5 blu-ray dvd's, but there are probably different packages now. It also includes free internet play.


Last I looked XBox was like 349 for the 20g. You also have to pay 49 for internet play (398). Some packages come with multiple games.


I just think PS3 is a superior machine. Don't forget you're also getting a Blu-ray player. I'm currently playing GT5 Prologue (PS3 only) and loving it. This year is going to be the year when developers start really tapping into the power of the PS3 hardware.

I already made my argument clear why I won't buy either, but to add to what the poster above said, 40 gigs isn't going to be enough.

I have a subscription to Game Informer and they just did an article about how much space these new games are taking up.

The new Devil May Cry game, takes up the space of a regular DVD, 4.7 gigs. That's one game alone.

I can't find my copy of the rag, but I'd list the games and specs they put in there as far as what the new games are taking for memory.

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.

You'll be best served with an Xbox 360 for games playing.

Don't worry about the RROD too much. They have revised the xbox a bit.

Just make sure you get one with a 175 watt power supply(there should be a sticker to indicate this. It'll also say it on the power brick). That way you KNOW you have a revised version.

I went with a PS3. I got the 80gb you can play almost all the ps2/ps1 games on it. Online is free. That ps3 'Home' is going to be out soon i think. If you have any questions about the ps3 pm me ill try my best to answer it.

I will also get me a PS3 and save the money for a blue-ray player because the PS3 can play them anyway.

I definitely want to get one this summer, don't know which one though. Can someone just list the advantages and disadvantages of each system (like 5points or so)? I've heard about the Xbox 360 red ring problem, and that sort of threw me off the 360 bandwagon. Thanks.
