hdtv=ps3
media=ps3
online=xbox
more games=x box
better games=ps3

but it's hard for me to justify spending 600 dollars on a gaming system, so that's holding me back from the ps3.

Ive played the ps3 a few times and I didnt think it was that great. I have an xbox 360 and have really enjoyed it with no problems so far.

i have only played one game on PS3 (Resistance) and it was pretty cool but I really like the 360. one of the main reasons i am leaning towards the PS3 though is Metal Gear Solid 4. i love those games and really want to play that one but i dont know the 200 more dollars is worth it

First thing I ask someone when they come in looking for a system is if they have an HDTV.

If they do, and are willing to spend a little bit more, then I tell them to go with the PS3. It's also the cheapest Blu Ray player on the market, which is an additional selling point (unfortunately, it's also the reason it's so expensive...it's sony's proprietary technology, and the PS3 was the only way they could really get the tech out there).

Good system, more sophisticated than xbox, but the multiplayer isn't quite as good.

Hold out for the new 360 to hit stores at the end of this month. 120GB HD and HDMI for $479.

I've had 2 PS3's since they've came out and just about all the games and still played it the least by far. In fact I just got done selling my 2nd PS3, the online is gay and games are 'ok' at best.

My 360 is broken and my PS3 isn't.

The PS3 is a badass gaming system, blu ray player and with the right software a badass PC as well. The 360 is a badass gaming system and media extender but it's not that hot as an an HD DVD player ($200 upgrade). If you only need 1080i then it's a tie but once you switch over to 1080p the PS3 blows away the 360.

For online play there is no question the 360 owns that realm, the playstation network is still in it's infancy. However the playstation network is free and Xbox live isn't. You also can't stream files from a PC to the PS3 in it's stock form but the media extender function of the 360 is very nice.

Out of the box the PS3 has a real web browser, you can plug in a USB keyboard and surf any site out there just like with a PC. Not possible with a 360. However Sony doesn't have anywhere near the downloadable content that Microsoft does.

If I could only have one it'd be the PS3. It's as competent as the 360 as a gaming system, considerably quieter and I'm willing to bet it's considerably more reliable given the track record of anything Microsoft.

Ive never really heard of many xboxs breaking down, but I went through two PS2s and I remeber like 40 percent or somthing broke because of some big problem. Ive had nothing but good experiences with microsoft products.

Let me start by saying I have both.

Like others have said. It depends on what you want to do with it. The 360 is better at most everything. Selection of games, online play, co-op play not online, and I also like the interface better. I have the HD player with a Logitech Harmony remote and would much rather watch the HD over the Bluray.

However, I know the PS3 with eventually surpass it. I think the PS3 is a better platform and it has more company support behind it. There is one thing the PS3 has, Sony movies are more likely to be released on Bluray.

My play breakdown is about 90/10 towards the 360. If you are going to watch High Def movies on them you will have about the same cost in them.

If you buy the elite and the HD drive you will have more in it than the PS3.

$679+$99 for the wireless network adapter, +$20 for the charge and play and $54 a year for Xbox live. The PS3 is way cheaper in this instance.

i have both and i enjoy both, for now i use the ps3 for movies and motorstorm or resistance, but i use the 360 more for its online gaming, gears of war and crackdown, the only real diference is the blue ray and the price, ha ha. of course since the hd-dvd for the 360 is 200 bucks and the new 120g hard drive is going to be like 150, sudenly the ps3 doesnt sound pricey.

but for now i will go with the 360 specially for games and connectivity with you pc, and all that. if not get the wii, is cheap and you will have a lots of fun making your drunk friends play wario ware

oh and by the way i got my 360 on launching and it fed-up so i had to get a new one, i also got the ps3 and the wii at launching and the ps3 was screwing up, (pixelating, cutting the the screen and a bunch of crap, the only one with no problems id the wii, if you go for the ps3 wait for the second gen, or well you can get lucky and get one that actually works perfectly

360 FTW..
For one, I wouldnt buy blu ray or HD DVD until the winner is declared but thats just me. 360 you can have HD DVD optional and there are rumors that a blu ray player might come as an add on depending how the market goes. All you have to do is read gaming magazines and look at game to game comparisons between the PS3 and the 360. The 360 owns the PS3 in almost every game comparison

360= ATI graphics
PS3= Nvidia graphic

ATI FTW....

Also, PS3 cant hold a candle to the Xbox Live

ever see that episode of south park where the parents are trying to make sense of the pokemon cartoon? That cartoon = the metal gear solid series.

I keep hearing people say this but whose to say there ever will be a winner? There are players that will decode either now and there are discs available that will work in either player. Beta and VHS didn't have this benefit. I think both are going to stick around until the next major format hits the market.

If you like the games a PS3 offers get it, it's a higher performance system with more built in features. If you like what the 360 has to offer get that one and if you like the Wii games buy it.

who knows who will win the next format war. Maybe nobody... Sony is trying to push it's trogan horse victory by putting blu-ray in the ps3 and charging an arm and a leg for it.
But really the Wii has great games to offer, the 360 has great games to offer, what great games has PS3 offered yet?
