PS3 vs XBOX 360 Extreme ???

Let me qualify my post -did a search and didn't find info ...

What are the differences between the two systems?

I also welcome your comments on both systems .....

Just spent $549 on the PS3 and want to make sure I (and you) think it is worth the money versus Xbox 360 - or the extreme ...

By the Way .... I have HDTV with 1080P.

Yeah you made the better choice. No server fees, and there will be another 50+ titles before xmas. And of course the graphics will rock your face off. The xbox is nice but its dated....and its owned by microsoft

You got the blue ray which is great, but I like the games for 360 better. The 360 elite is a great deal too.

If you're being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They're trained for that!

imo the 360 upgrade is a ripoff. the call a lil bigger HD and HDMI outputs an upgrade? they shoulda made it a damn High def dvd player as well. waste of money.

if you have an hdtv, full 1080p, PS3 is the choice. Throw Blu-Ray in there and you're good to go. As long as you're not afraid to spend the money, it's the best choice for anyone with a 1080p

well i haven't played the PS3 yet but I always like my PS2. But ever since I have own a Xbox and got the x-box live that rocks. But now my 360 has taken a shit and I have to send it back. So that really sucks balls about the 360.

I use my PS3 as a DVD and Blu ray player nearly exclusively. Even if the games aren't there yet it's media player and extender abilities blow the 360 out of the water. Not to mention a real actual browser that lets you go to sites other than Xbox live. Also the fact that even at full load it's quieter than my DVR dish box and nowhere near as loud as a 360 just idling.

What is the difference between all the 360s? If it is just a bigger HD, Iíve heard that you canít change out your 360 HD or it will ban you online. I know a PS3 works on a regular laptop HD; you could buy the 20 GB PS3, and then swap out the HD with a 250 gigger for around 200 bucks.

Can someone please explain to me what an XBOX360 EXTREME is? Is it the one from the new sequel to Harold and Kumar?

The 20gb unit does not have the card readers, or wi-fi card.

you are misinformed. The 360 supports 1080p since a long time ago.

360 has the better games.

Halo 3 is pretty much a reason itself to pick up a 360.

Plus, why settle playing ESPN games on your PS3 at 30fps when you can play the same games at 60fps on a 360? Just because a system has the potential to be powerful dosent mean it will. Heck, look at the Sega Saturn. Developers are going to put their top programmers on the system that is going to get them the most payback. And currently its the wii and 360 with PS3 dead last. So PS3 is getting the left overs just like the original Xbox.

360 even though mine broke.

i dont remember what show but one of them on G4 gace the PS3 a poor review and the shows main sponsor was sony.

the graphics are barely as good as a 360 and the only game that scored as well as the 360 was madden and it was only because it looked exactly the same.

i own all three systems just picked up the x box when the price was lowered. So far the ps3 has been a real let down. I like the 360 and its features. You have to pay to play online but its not bad 50 bucks for a year. From the online experience i have had with the ps3 the 360 wins hands down. Now once the ps3 gets some shit moving itll be a whole nother story. I still think it'll be the gamers console. Now the wii is just the shit. Anyone can have fun playing the games and the price is hard to argue with either.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

Sure on games but not through HD DVD. In order to be HDCP compliant you've got to use HDMI or DVI cables, you can thank those cocksuckers at the MPAA for this. Most TV sets won't support 1080p through components or VGA either for games, I know my Sony LCD won't. Some will though so true, 1080p was supported sort of by the 360 at launch (with software updates).

The last 4 games I've purchased were all for the 360, even after owning a PS3. It is hands down a better gaming system right now. The problem with the 360 though is that it's limited by the storage available on a dual layer DVD, which will be pretty much will be maxed out with Halo 3. A bluray disc can hold 6 times the data and there are already PS3 games on the horizon with more than 15 gigs worth of data.

uhh the 360 pro and 360 Elite (not extreme) both support HDMI now...
(to original poster) only difference between the pro and elite is the elite is black and has 120 gb vs 20 gb hard drive... the 360 has better games and most reviews i have read state the 360 as better graphics....
I own both the Wii and the 360 I'm still playing Resident Evil 4 (yes i've beat it twice) for the wii... i'd take the Wii over ps3 or 360...
games i can't wait for
wii - super mario galaxy and super smash bros brawl
360 - halo 3

shm short block, vortech s trim, 3.55's, AFM power pipe,etc..

And this would be a recent development, the statement I was replying to is that they supported 1080p a long time ago, which it sort of did as I mentioned. Just not on HD DVD since you needed DVI or HDMI for it, now that they come with HDMI then of course they are capable of it.

I bought another XBox last weekend... Could have gotten a PS3, but I didn't want one...

The Elite version with it's 1080i upconverting from regular DVDs and HDMI is the shit... Also has full 1080P through the add on HD player now... It looks sick as hell on my new 65" Tv.

I may get a PS3 one day, but the Elite is the shit...

yes... the black box is the processing power, the HD player is just a laser and it uses the processing of the box to output the signal... It also upconverts regular DVDs to 1080i...

without the black box, it will not output the signal in full 1080P because 1080P cannot travel through component cables... at least that is what I've heard and read from many sources... the black box makes the HD player look better with HDMI. I have both a Premium and an Elite, and even my dad thought the picture was much better from the Elite...

He said, "I think your black box does a hell of a lot better job with the up conversion than the white one..." hahaha We were comparing his older 65" with my white box to my new 65" and the black box... he thought I was cheating...

I think the Xbox does a fantastic job in the way of graphics (I have played both and cant tell the differance in graphics). And I have even read articles stating the Xbox is more powerfull than the PS3 but my brother has had to send his in for repairs 3 times, and hes not the only one. I have talked to a few others (and read A LOT of write-ups) before buying one or the other. This is the only reason I didnt buy the Xbox. I bought my PS3 in Dec 06 and have not even had as much as a lock up while playing. Though if the PS3 had as many title to choose from it would of sold a lot more.

I did get the new yesterday Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare and its fucking awsome. I also bought the Rainbow Vegas at the same time which is pretty good as well but GR looks much better.
