    I'm going to be getting one soon. I'm just not sure which one to get. which one is better? I've always been a PlayStation gamer.

    I have both and personally I like the xbox more. I just think live is better than the playstation network. You really can't tell a difference between the graphics on the two imo. I do like the fact that the ps3 can play blurays though. If you're gonna play online get the 360, if not go with the ps3. I also like move but I haven't tried kinect yet.

    PC? A lot more variables to quality (graphics card being the biggest thing, but of course Ram, HD space/speed, CPU and so on come into play), but a lot more potential, always will be supported, and the best part is there's a lot of third party support for a lot of games. Not just official plug ins, but mods (not necessarily cheating mind you, but expansions, additional weapons/perks/development) created by third party and all open source.

    My vote goes for 360, big surprise as I am a 360 owner. Couldn't really say why though...

    How about not? I quit playing on the PC because I realized how expensive PC gaming was, compared to consoles. I can purchase the exact same games for my Xbox, and don't have to worry about upgrading my PC before doing so.

    Back on topic, I love my Xbox.

    Ps3. Only because since I got it, it's worked like a charm day in and day out. Had to replace the xbox 4 times for the dreaded red ring of death. Got tired of it and swore no more money goes to xbox. Been happy since!

    Looks like you're getting the xbox, but my vote is for ps3. Blu ray, don't have to pay $50 a year to play online, does xbox have hdmi? Cant remember. Also I know on xbox you used to have to buy an extra piece just to pick up wifi. I'm guessing those new xbox's have that built in, like its been built into ps3 from the get go

    @fenway - see that's what I've been hearing from other people too. go with ps3 because of the red ring you get from xbox. but it seems like its a toss up for me because I've always loved playstation. I think what I'm going to do is buy this xbox for cheap from a guy at work and then get a ps3 in a few months.

    The red ring was really only a huge issue with the first gen 360s. I haven't heard of any issues with the slim. Oh and my 360 is 2 years old and I have participated in my fair share of long term gaming sessions, some lasting up to 12 hours+ , and i've never had the dreaded ring.

    Xbox has been doing a pretty good job at repairing the RRoD at no charge. Of course, there are going to be the few that are considering out of warranty, but it's like any other electronic and their warranty.

    I've had a RRoD once, and Microsoft replaced it at no cost to me at all. I have a friend of mine that has been through four Xbox's, and currently has a PS3, and still recommends that Xbox over the PS.

    You pay-to-play online, but I don't have a problem with it considering it does weed out many "trolls." Anyone can join the PS Network, including the annoying 12 year old getting online just to annoy the hell out of everybody. Not to mention, Xbox Live is setup so much better than the PS Network, but that's only my personal opinion.

    The Xbox does have HDMI, and yes, the older Xbox's required you purchase an adapter for WiFi. However, the Xbox's were always at least $100 cheaper than any PS3.

    Either way, the new slim Xbox's have HDMI, WiFi, and a 250 GB HD for only $300.

    I loved PS2 myself, until I played the Xbox 360. When the PS3 came out at it's ridiculous $600 price point, I couldn't stop laughing. I can buy a decent PC for that price. They've come down in price, but I've already really taken a liking to my Xbox.

    i gave my xbox360 to my sons and kept my ps3. they also have ps3s of their own, and the xbox sits hardly ever played, collecting dust. so this house counts for three votes towards a ps3.

    well im goin to try to be as fair as i can be i owned both at one time and sold the 360 the ps3 has alot more features and in my mind is way way more reliable. cnet does a good prize fight comparison with the slims. i have more frinds that play ps3 i like the ps3 controller better i like having bluray and i like the free online.. but 360 online is better but ps3 is not bad i still enjoy playing halo but i also like resistence fom... so i would go with what is more comfortable. if all your frinds have 360 then u can just play there 360 and u will make new great frinds on both systems anyway. but every one is bias when it comes to this anyway so it really up to u when u spend money on sumn u always want it to be the best so ps3 owners will say there system is better and 360 will say the same. but check cnet out! sorry for my sloppy writing my phone sucks!
