    So yeah, I'm selling my Wii, PS2, and DSL to buy one of the 2 consoles above. I like the 360 because of the Games out and great graphics, and I already played one on my cousins house. But I also like the PS3 because of the fact it has Free Online Play, Plays Blu-Ray moves and will have many great games this year/next. So which one? Also If I get a Xbox 360 it would be the Premium, not Elite/Core. And PS3 I think I would get the 20GB. So yeah, any suggestions?


    Oh yeah also don't suggest to get a Wii because I have one and was very dissapointed in what it offered. I am not interested anymore in it.

    Yeah, in the long run though, in 2008 I see the PS3 surpassing the 360 in so many ways :/

    Wait around 1.5 years and get a PS3.

    When it has the games, support and lower price it'll be the better buy simply because the technology is better. It'll last a lot longer. Not to mention included Wifi (even Wii has wifi but 360 doesn't?), bigger harddrive, free online play, Home, Little Big Planet etc.

    Also the thing with that is I'm usually impatient [​IMG] So I don't plan on getting one of the consoles anytime before 2 months from now or so. But the thing is I never had an Xbox also and I don't want to get a 360 and have it get the 3 Red lights of death.

    OMG!
    I thought of the PS3 when I saw this thread, but my hand clicked on the 360.

    I guess I've been thinking with my right hand for a while.

    Get a 360 if you want a console now, really all the responses you are getting recommending the PS3 are talking about how good it will be in the future.

    BTW Soul Caliber IV AFAIK is coming out on 360 as well.

    Realistically the only games that PS3 will have over 360 in the long run are RPGs so it really depends if you love RPGs.

    How much do you seriously care about blu-ray? If you don't have a decent HDTV then it's pointless. Plus if you get the cheaper version of the PS3 AFAIK it doesn't have a HDMI connection.

    here's what you shoud do. hold out until you absolutely have to have a game for it. otherwise, why bother?

    for ps3, it's ninja gaiden sigma.

    If you get PS3 now, you'll end up playing buncha PS2 games, it's not like you're gonna play Tekken whole day and every day for months. I'd either get 360 or wait until good games for PS3 come out (and price drops too)

    Yeah, seems about right. in a couple months GTA IV comes out on both consoles..and I really want to play, also DiRT is also coming out on both consoles.. So I guess I'll wait until both of these are out.

    If you get a 360, there is a 15% chance every time you put a game in it that it might break. If you get a PS3, then well, no games... that are not already on 360 and good.

    personally, I would keep my wii and ds over a 360/ps3, hell, I'd keep my DS over it.

    but between ps3 and 360, I gotta go with 360, ps3 is a joke, and you dont want to be the punchline

    The PS3 is loosing more exclusives than the 360.
    You might not be able to get a 20GB model, AFAIK they are no longer on sale in the US.
