PS3 vs. XBOX360

Christmas and my birthday(December 28, WHOOOO!!) are coming up and I am looking into the new game consoles. I ruled out Wii because of the graphics and games are too kiddy. I play 360 all the time at my friends houses and I like it a lot. I was wondering if other people have debated over PS3 and 360 or if anyone has PS3 and could tell me how they like it.
Now since PS3 is down to $400 and online play is free, it is a lot more competitive since xbox360 is $350 not including online play which is $50 a year.

I would suggest getting a 360. Online play may be free on the PS3, but what's the point if nobody uses it? PS3 is great as a second console, but XBox 360 is the best all-around console in this generation.

360 has a better online gaming as they've been doing it for longer. I'll take xbox live over PS3's online service anyday. 360 has better games out now, but eventually Sony will come out with their good games and the potential of the PS3 is better. If you like Sony exclusive games (Final Fantasy Series, GTA, MGS, etc.) There will more than likely be some more PS exclusive titles and the games will be better on PS3 in a few years. Until that point I would highly recommend the 360 over the PS3.

I've been a PSx person since the original one was 299 and I bought one 2 days before opening night since I worked for EA. I chose a 360 over the PS3 when I bought a console Oct 1. (Day after my b-day).

PC.. consoles to me where always over rated, expensive and out dated to fast.. my last console was the original sega system.

Sides I don't fps much and thats where 90% of games are going to..

If I HAD to chose a system it would be wii.. just for interaction and the zelda series..

You'tr obviously not a gamer then. Can you imagine trying to beat a boss after playing 6 hours of storyline when you can't lift your arms from all the swinging of the controller to kill the baddies?

i have played the Wii, it is a VERY nice console for the money and it plays ALL the old Gamecube games and you can download a LOT of the old games from the NES to the N64 and even Sega Genesis games :eek: . I do not have a 360 or a PS3 but if I had a choice I would get a PS3, it has a lot more bang for the buck to me, and the fact that it has a Blu Ray player built in helps a little . I just got a HD DVD player so I am holding off on a 360 for now.

I've played all 3. My friend has a PS# and I'm VERY unimpressed with the game selection. Wii is fun but it's following in the path of the N64 and Gamecube as it's target market is families with kids for their games. Yes they have had a few franchises for adults (Resident evil, Star Wars, etc.) but for the most part you have games like (paper mario, Super monkey ball, etc.)

I do defend Wii though and have to say Wii sports is tons of fun and I'm sure SSMB will be fantastic but you need people to play it. It's not very fun single player. I will be spending a ton of time at my friend's house playing the new boxing game of which I forget the name (Based on Hajime no Ippo anime).

Halo 3, Assassin's Creed, NFS:PS, Mass Effect, probably the next PGR/forza and Borderlands are the games that I would like to play, and online play is just that much better on xbox.

Im going to have to say PS3 just because I think it has more potential and I am a GTA fanatic. I will probably end up getting one in the future when the price drops AGAIN and I will be playing GTA IV all day.

If i were to buy one I would go for PS3, in part due to the blu ray player and the free online gamming. Also, the games are no where near their potential for the system yet. BUT why buy either one when you have a computer all to yourself that can play any of the new generation of games?

Who plays halo on PC? Oblivion? Most games are better on Console or PC, they're 90% of the time a different game altogether. I was working on 007: Nightfire for Xbox, and the 007: Nightfire for PC was being developed next to me.

Take a look at both games and tell me if you see ANY similarities other than it's a FPS James bond? The PC version was using the half-life engine and was basically just a Bond mod. They had laser mines, we didn't. =/


EDIT: I had to choose between PC and a console since I'm saving for my car and only chose to spend money to buy one. I went with console. World of Warcraft didn't even hold my attention as much as Halo does. Plus Assassin's creed will come out on PC 6 months after console so I'm told.

Neither. I love my Wii.

Almost every time we have a get-together it ends up being the center of attention. My friends love it.

'Kiddie' is an opinion I believe. Some of the greatest games ever have been 'kiddie'. Sonic games, Mario games, Banjo-Kazooie 1 and 2.

Graphics and 'adult vs. kiddie' isn't what makes a game fun. Gameplay is what makes a game. And Nintendo has always had fantasticly fun games.

The Wii and Nintendo DS are hugely successful because they're fun. Outselling PS3, XBox 360 and PSP handily.

IIRC the DS is the top selling game system ever now. And the Wii sold more units in less than a year than XBox 360 sold in 2 years.

My 60 GM dwarf Priest (only grand marshall Dwarf priest on Illidan) had something like 168 hours. I had a rank 12 human rogue, and a few more 60's when I sold that account. My new account with my warlock has something like 78 days on my 70 and like 20 on my 64 alt.

My guild had completed BT before I left. =P

I stopped raiding because I work nights and they didn't want to start the raid at 5 AM EST time (Illidan was 2 hours ahead of my on the west coast).

I couldn't find very many fun games on the wii aside from wii sports. Mario became an overplayed franchise and they've taken away most of what made the game fun. Go play super mario world, then go play mario sunshine, paper mario or Luigi's Mansion. That kind of a difference. Everyone has their own opinion for each console, which is why I didn't say buy one or the other. There are a few good games on every console and there are ones you won't like. If wii has some more games like Hajime no Ippo, I would have bought that.

Just wanted to point out that GTA is no longer a PS exclusive. GTA IV releases on 360 on the same day as PS3. I have never played a PS3 so I can not compare, however, I have had my 360 for almost 2 years now and love it.

Well, I have Prince of Persia, Zelda, Metroid Prime 3. All great games.

I also have-

Wii Sports
Super Monkeyball
Super Mario Strikers
Excite Truck and Monster 4x4 (only 2 racing games I've ever liked other than F-Zero and Mario Kart)
Rayman
Super Paper Mario

All of which my friends love when we get together.

And I plan on getting Super Mario Galaxy this month.

I won't deny PS2 and 3 have some games I'd like to get eventually (when they're old and cheap lol) though. X-Box though has never appealed to me.

I would suggest the 360. I have played the Wii and that got boring and the PS3 doesn’t seem to have many good games out. I own a 360 and I really like it. The controller doesn’t slip and the graphics are great. It also has very good games out for it. Halo 3, Gears of War, PGR3 and 4, Dead Rising, and much more.

That's true. The 360 is a killer system.

You gotta admit, that was very punny

Oh I gotta stop . . .

I have never owned a Playstation so I don't know how GT plays, however, I love Forza 2 on the 360. If you like racing simulators then, IMO, this is the best one out for the 360. You can choose from hundreds of cars from across the globe and from different eras and classes. You can tune and upgrade your vehicle many different ways. I would recomend the MS force feedback racing wheel also.
