I wouldn't say one is better than the other.

It mainly comes down to what you're going to be playing. Are you going to be playing a lot of online shooters, racing games, role playing games,...

Also, do you have family, friends, or coworkers who are gamers, if so, get the same console they have, because playing online with them is where all the fun is!

Xbox 360! IMO the online is better and this new kinect thing is better than PS3s motion thing. PS3 just copied Wii. If anything, Halo should persuade you to get the Xbox since it is not available on PS3 GT5 may have amazing graphics, but not having the RS package on the SS completely killed the game!

I still don't think any games will be competitive on Kinect of Playstation Move.

As for which is better. XBL > PSN. The consoles are about the same unless you plan to watch blu-rays.

I had a PS2 & GT4. I ended up giving it to someone less fortunate. Fast forward a few years...I now have a 360 & had Forza 3. Crap game IMO. I went and played GT5 on my in-laws PS3, WOW. Eye candy along with great physics. I'm counting down the days until I'm finished with college and I get to buy a PS3 & GT5. After that - Elder Scrolls V here I come.

As far as Sony copying Nintendo...LOL. They did nothing except improve on Nintendo's crap. I got the Wii for Goldeneye & a few other games, boy I couldn't have been more disappointed with that game. It's graphics and wiimote controls suck.

I know I probably sound like a debby downer, but that's my $.02 on those subjects.

I hope they fix a lot of things about the game. I like froze 3 but the rating system on how fast the cars are was way off. For example it was all based on the generic ratings they had (like: speed 6.1, acceleration 4.3, etc..) and not actually power to weight. This especially evident in the quarter mile races. Trap speeds were horribly off

They both have their ups and downs.
IMO, the PS3's interface and playback capabilities make it extremely viable in the video department. It supports .AVI, .MP4, .WMV, etc. Its controls during video playback are also smoother, and the blu-ray capability isn't a bad thing if you have an HDTV hooked up to it. If you're one of those 3DTV adopters, it now comes with 3D blu-ray support. BUT, the PS3 has a mediocre online service. My 360 and PS3 are equidistant from our wireless modem, and the PS3 barely picks up the signal while my 360 gets enough of a connection to run HD on Netflix.
The Xbox 360, however (again, IMO), is better in the gaming department. While you might have to pay for Xbox Live, one-year subscriptions are usually on sale somewhere, and even when you have to pay for it, it's a good trade-off. The UI in XBL is a lot nicer than PSN, the controller fits way more comfortably in your hands, and the library of games is arguably better. Even multi-platform games have a larger following on the 360. Having said that though, video playback is a nuisance on the 360. The interface is cheap and clunky and it's all too easy to toggle a 30x rewind just by nudging the controller the wrong way.
What it really comes down to is what you plan to do with your console. If you want a greater video experience, then the PS3 is the clear winner. Blu-Ray will beat out an upscaled 480i DVD any day of the week, and the broader range of support for video files never hurt. If you want a greater gaming experience, the 360 wins only if you plan to get Xbox Live. It's the saving grace of the console and justifies the purchase.

I prefer PS3.

Not understanding why you would want to pay for online gaming when you can get it for free. I have played on XBOX live many many many times and I dont see why it is worth paying for over what the PS3 offers for free.

PS3 can play blu-rays.

I originally played ps1 and ps2. It took more than HALO and a bunch of stolen exclusives to turn my loyalty.

That was enough for me.

Not sure about the newer xboxs but the older ones just seemed thrown together and low quality. For example...you have a big ass brick in the power cable you have to deal with. The controllers dont come wireless and the ones that you buy extra you have to put batteries in LOL. The System doesnt have an auto feed for the discs. It is loud. It just seems thrown together and was coupled with a 30% failure rate at the beginning. Literally EVERY one of my friends who bought a 360 originally got a red ring within the first couple years. I have had my PS3 since launch and never had a problem.

PS3 may be a better built machine but XBL beats out PSN in every way. Plus XBL does offer a free online service, its XBL Gold that costs money. Its like $4 a month, people really can't afford that?

Back on topic

The graphics on this game look awesome!!

I dont even play much anymore so its not a big deal. Just the added convenience of a blu-ray player is reason enough for me. Little extra details of x-box live dont really do anything for me...you are still playing online regardless once your in the game. Im not some hardcore pimpled up 16 year old who nuts over every little detail etc...just let me play the damn game.

More on topic...the game looks great. I'll play it on a friends 360.

forza has always been great. I really hope they don't focus too much on the kinect aspect, too gimmicky. I don't want to pretend to drive a car with my hands floating on nothing. I am fine with a controller or a steering wheel, but not kinect.

Forza 3 was great. Very fun game. Gran Tourismo seems like an unfinished game to me. It took them six years to finish it, and it stills seems unfinished. Everything from damage, to the environments.

Kinect isn't needed to play this game. You can also play this game with a regular old controller.

Both systems have their ups and downs. The New 360S is a great improvement over the old one. It's quieter, sleeker, and uses less energy. Both systems are great systems, but it mainly depends on the games you want to play. Xbox has Fable, Halo, Gears of War and PS3 has Uncharted, Infamous, and Ratchet and Clank.

Both systems are great, and now is the time to buy. There are deals all over the place for these machines. You can't go wrong with either.

I almost went out and bought a PS3 just for GT5... Kinda glad I didn't.
