Default PS3 or Xbox 360?

I'm finally waking up to 2008 and getting a new console (still playing PS2) ..but can't decide which one I want ...So what do you think ?which Console is the best?..PS3 or Xbox? and why.

(note. The Wii deserves mention , but im looking for more of a classic style console)

The Wii deserves no mention.


I would go for the 360. The new ones have a new chi that is supposed to protect it from red ring death, plus the online service is 1000 times better than PS3.

360 has Gamerpoints, which you can earn through games, making you wanna play them more and maximise your spending dollar.

360 also has a much better library of games and its $100 cheaper.

Only thing PS3 has on 360 is that it can play BluRay movies.

No question about it, get a 360.

PS3's games are lame, it's online network is not on par with X Box Live, and Blu-Ray DVD's are ridiculously overpriced at this time.

The 360's new chips have corrected the overheating in their systems. If you're going to get one, DO NOT buy an older version or a used one. Get the Elite if you're going to buy one.

My Elite died on me, too. And judging from game boards all over the world the problem has not been fixed.

If I had to choose I'd decide on the PS3.

I would choose the 360 since it can be mod to play backups.

But stock for stock, gimme ps3.

wii and a 360. a solid offering of what modern gaming has to offer. can get both of these consoles for about what a loaded out ps3 costs, like the metal gear one.

although i have been drooling over little big planet for the past few months..

I'm liking the 360.. I kind of want to get a PS3 for the new Socom but I just can't find it in me to trade in the XBOX because I know the online for the 360 absolutely kills Sonys.

You should get the PS3 just so you can play MGS4 and LBP.

Yeah, MGS4. Degenerated manga action meets tedious movie sequences.
