360 or PS3

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone. Think i might invest in a Console was thinking a 360 or PS3. I am leaning towards a 360 because it is cheaper and the games are cheaper and have a broader range of games available. Can any of you console fanboys try and convince me otherwise and get a PS3.

 

EB currently have a special on a 360 http://www.ebgames.com.au/Xbox/product.cfm?ID=12802

This has the makings of a really nice, intellectual thread.

 

My vote is for 360.

Mainly for XNA.

Secondly, there's more exclusive games on it that I want to play.

To be honest the 360 hits the sweet spot price wise and especially this time of the year everything has a package of some kind OR alternatively wait til boxing day and see can u get like major specials but i highly doubt it for electronics.

 

Anyways my vote goes to the 360 as its cheap and hope to god no red ring of death :P

Do you want to play online?

 

X-Box seems to work better but you pay for it.

 

PS3 seems to suck depending on what time of day you are playing, response times can be pretty annoying the headsets also don't seem to work as well.

Flip a coin.

 

Either way, you're going to get great technology with some awesome multi-format games.

As has been said in the 3,576 other threads of this type, take a look at which system has the exclusives you want the most, and go for that.

If Blu Ray doesn't get you excited & most games you want are on the X360, then it's a pretty easy choice.

 

(Not sure about games being cheaper though. Haven't looked hard at X360 titles, but I thought they were around the same price as those on PS3..)

Go where the games are.

 

Go to where the most reliable get made to play for free and full 1080P HD picture and not have worry about a system that breaks or catches on fire and sets your house up in flames every god dam day ;) (Jokes)

Get a system that rocks your boat, offers you the service and games you want to play. Either system is a valid purchase, what ever you choose make sure its the one that makes you happy most ;)

If you want fanboyism to influence your console choice, you are simply doomed to failure from day one.

Just get both.

No you noob that's not how it works! We're meant to argue in circles until the poor bastard decides he's better off with neither! :P

I should have been a bit clearer, my response was to the whole 360 Vs PS3 thread. Its been done to death.

 

I own a Dreamcast and agree with you, Fantastic console.
