Xbox or PS3?
Okay, okay, so I just got off a desserted island and joined the 21st century. My question is...
which is a better choice?
Xbox360 or PS3?
PS3 can play Blueray....can Xbox match this?
For online purposes, how many of you have which console? I'd like to do the NHL '09 thing someday soon.
Thanks for your serious input. It is valued.
360 hands Down....Referring to my other post on this subject...
*IF* you have an interest in making the jump in both next gen games AND next gen video - PS3 is the only way you can go right now. The PS3 is not just a tremendous value, but it does both very well.
If games are your ONLY consideration, you can get either and be happy.
Get both, problem solved.
The online play for 360 is unmatched plus the xbox360 is alot smoother as far as gameplay goes.
I have both. 360 is just more fun for gaming and the controller is better.
Although I don't think you would be disappointed with a PS3 for the gaming (Metal Gear Solid 4 is an exclusive) and Blu ray capability.
PS3! By far. Ask any Xbox owner how many times they've had to take it back for the "blue death" or "red ring"
If you're going to play online, 360. If you want media capability, PS3. The problem is that there's always the install time on the PS3 and the online is the wild-f'ing-west, but you get Blu-Ray. I'm personally holding off on the PS3 for more movies and games, but I will get one one day.
I just set up my brand new PS3 two days ago and I freaking LOVE it. I grew up a gamer but haven't really been for the last few years, but the PS3 is definitely inspiring me to play...I bought MGS4, Madden and will soon buy Call of Duty, Force Unleashed and of course NHL09)
But for me the choice wasn't about gaming... it was about Blu-ray. The games are a bonus. A very very nice bonus.
Not quite sure what the big deal is about PS3's "inferior" online play...so far I've played 2 games of madden online and I had fun. No technical issues really to speak of so...
Anyways, if you are looking for Blu-ray player then, well, the new 80Gig PS3 for $399 is a no brainer. Got mine a few days ago and I love it. I'm really looking forward to playing on the NHL09 team/guild/clan/whatever on my shiny new PS3.
