    Well You have to pay for xbox live , psn is free. Even  if it does get serviced once a month. That was the sell point for me.

    They're both fine systems, I wouldn't say one is better than the other.

    It really depends on what your friends play on. If that's not a factor, then it's just preference.

    I know both are the best. But my friend offer me to get one game system and one game buy for me. But I cant choose both. I have to pick one. So just vote for me for best choice. I know both are best game and game system. But still, I have to pick one game system and one game.

    I would say to you go for the PS3 because i have purchased both consoles and i've kept the PS3, the free online play was a factor.

    take some of the exclusives in mind when buying, I know the exclusives between the PS3 and 360 are limited but I would imagine that should be the deciding factor

    I entered my vote before my post.

    The free online play is what it says, if you wanna play multiplayer online there's no charge unlike the 360.

    If you have some friends you can go in on a family plan for xbox live. 3 of my friends and i got a year for 25$ each. PSN is free but you get what you pay for.

    It seems you're a little confused here, so let me clarify a few things.

    The PS3 has free online multiplayer, meaning you can go online and play Call of Duty or whatever multiplayer game online with your friends for free. You also get access to the PlayStation Store, which allows you to BUY games (such as PS1 or PS2 classics) or download demos for free. That's it. You can buy a monthly subscription of PlayStation Plus, which offers some discounts on some games, early access to some demos, and some usually crappy games they give away for free.

    The Xbox 360 has a pay-to-play online multiplayer. If you wanted to play Call of Duty or whatever multiplayer game online with your friends, you'd have to pay for a subscription to Xbox Live. Out of the two online experiences, Xbox Live is far superior to the PS3, but mostly because it's more stable and has more players along with other various features. This is why you should follow Guilds advice and just get whichever your friends play the most.

    In case you don't get it, the ps3 lets you play online multiplayer for free, NOT FREE PSX GAMES.
    While you have to pay every month to play online on the xbox.
    The ps3 is a better choice for rpg's (Versus :wub: and all)
    I voted for ps3.
    About what what tom said, there a paying service called playstation network plus, that gives you more functions like free games but you have to pay like xbox live.
    Please, try to fix your grammar. Nor you can write proprely nor even read and get the points.
    Try reading books, it could help you.

    There is no question, the PS3 beats the 360 in every way unless you absolutely have to have all the games that are exclusives. I once debated getting a 360, was always a bit lukewarm, ultimately decided against it and based on recent sales trends, I am seeing my own intuitive wisdom. Go with the wisdom!

    Also, dude, you can't help the mistakes for your name, your choice is so obscure and close to the far more recognized word 'anime,' you are GOING to get that mistake, especially when two very similar letters are transposed so close. Blame mortality, man!

    I get those mistakes pretty often and i don't mind them, i wrote it as my title so i don't have to answer it every time or so that people notice before telling me i have a typo in my username.
    Yeah i know, it's obscure but well, it's my name so screw it.
