    Well Final Fantasy 13 is on it's way, and i've been wondering what console to get.
    I mainly want one just to play FF13, and some other games that are out on them. I just can't make up my mind on which one lol.
    I don't mind about the prices of which because I'll be getting an apprenticeship soon, and that's up to £90 per week (which is good for 16 I guess) I've any of you could help me decide that be great [​IMG]

    Well if you want to pirate your games 360 is better because you can modify it unless they were able to hack the ps3 to play pirated games, but from what i remember the ps3 can't play pirated games yet but of course i am not sure.
    Oh and i don't own either of the consoles i'm just stating my opinion

    I wouldn't buy a system purely for that, but whatever, it's your decision.

    Anyway, it depends on what console exclusives you want. Both systems get Call of Duty 4, 5, and 6. Xbox gets Halo 3, Left 4 Dead, etc. PS3 gets Uncharted, MGS4, etc. It depends on your preference. Personally, I'd say PS3. The Slim makes it just on par with the Xbox 360 and it has some good games.

    No what i mean is something like this
    http://kotaku.com/5379685/bayonetta-ps3-versus-bayonetta-360
    where they compare the graphics and the load times.

    It depends on your tastes, but I would choose the PS3.

    http://www.lensoftruth.com/?p=15982 Here they have lot of PS3 X360 game comparisons, and almost everytime 360 wins, though you can make your own opinion from the screenshots
    Here is the rendering resolution and AA info of the games for X360 and PS3, like Grand Theft Auto IV, Bioshock, Batman Arkham Asylum http://forum.beyond3d.com/showthread.php?t=46241 (I am not promoting X360, I have PS3 actually)

    There are other non-graphics diffs like PS3's free multiplayer, or if you are going to plug your console to PC LCD or HDTV, which 360 officially supports(LCD), PS3 don't, etc.

    I'd say, unless there's something the 360 offers that you really really want (like... Halo? Is that what they still play these days?) then go for the PS3. There's nothing the 360 really has over it. And don't get me started about the Xbox Live "community". If you call 8 year olds screaming at you for throwing a grenade a community, that's fine.

    Post your PSN when you get one [​IMG]

    Xbox 360 is what I have, but you have to pay to play online and every game you purchase retail comes out with downloadable content within 2 months of release. This DLC is not free. My Uncle has a ps3 and he never had a single issue with it and he plays online for free. My xbox just got back from being repaired for an e74 error, and the cheap bastards replaced it with a refurbished one, instead of actually fixing it: I had to download all my DLC again. As far as Final Fantasy goes, I'm glad it's coming out for the 360 because I have one, but honestly it is meant to be played on a Playstation. The only thing I can say good about xbox is Gears of War. In case you were also wondering if you should get any model of psp, especially the go model: DONT the PSP sucks hard. Get the ps3 slim with 160 GB HDD. You won't be sorry.

    PS3 any day. The only reason I would possibly buy a 360 would be because of the GTA IV expansions.

    Now before I post, I just want to say I'm not a damn fanboy. I'm a PS3 owner who thinks the Xbox 360 kicks ass, so don't go apeshit over my opinions.

    Personally, i say go for the PS3.

    It has free online multiplayer. Sure, I agree that the multiplayer experience on the Xbox360 is great, but damn 50 bucks a year? I could spend that damn money on other stuff.

    It has some kick ass exclusives, like Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4. Sure Halo 3 and ODST are great, but I prefer the PS3 exclusives (It's an opinion. Keep your damn pants on)

    Blu-ray. Need I say more?

    Now most would disagree with me on this, but these are just mere opinions. Otherwise known as things that no one gives a damn about
