PS3...

You can stick the girls onto playing SingStar and escape down town :)

Its also a BD player, and you can get it free if you need to switch phone contracts. Winner.

360 = More games (at the minute!) and online gaming costing £££ or $$$

ps3 more expensive but free online cheap to upgrade hard drives, not sure about 360, and as TH&S said its a BD player (Blueray Disc) which means that eventually games can be as big as 50GB. Mrs bugged me to get oblivion Game of the year edition "How bloody big is that game??! lol.

If you can afford it mate go PS3 all the way it also has a built in web browser, customizable menus etc etc

oops sorry and no i don't work for sony:rolleyes:

As a pure games machine. The 360 is better. It has a more elegant hardware architecture which means it's easier to program for. The upshot is that there are more games available for it and that most multiplatform games that come out on PS3 and 360, the 360 will be the better one. Better texture resolution, smoother framerates etc...

Also, if you want to play online then Xbox live is just killer.

I've got both and I always buy by game for the 360 for the above reasons.

No, if you want a really good upscaling DVD player/bluray player then the PS3 can't be beat.

Ive got a PS3. Use it to play DVDs and of course Blue Ray. Use if for that more than games. Though, will be getting the new GT on Friday when its out. More games for the 360 at the moment, but they are still working on getting the most out of t he PS3 so the best games will be yet to come.

I've got both and there's no competition its' PS3 all the way. Build quality, looks and feel of the whole thing makes you feel you actually bought something worth the money that doesn't sound like it might take off at any minute with its excesivley noisey cooling fans which don't actually cool it down and causes the ROD (ring of death ).

Xbox 360 although has alot of fanboys out there only because they didn't wait and spend their money more wisely. PS3 is more bang for your buck.

I haven't go either but if i was going to buy it'd have to be PS3 -

build quality

Blu-ray (if you are after a blu ray dvd player it's like getting a games console for free)

Gran turismo!

PS3...

do you know of any specifc contracts?

the ones ive seen are in the newspaper from some dodgey company, looks really good until you get your microscope out and read the small print...

good thing ive read about the ps3, it can be used as a tv recorder, allowing you (like sky +) to record 2 channel at once. You can also link your pc/laptop to it by wireless. This is perfect if you stream alot of new films etc.

Apparently it can record whats on the current channel if you add some additional software to it under linux... It doesn't have a built in tuner so I don't see how it can record 2 channels at once...?

Yeah if you PM me I'll try and dig out the link...

Xbox has more games and they both basically look the same. Qaulity wise Microsoft could learn alot about build quality as I'm sending mine back for the second time.

for it to act as a sky+ box it needs to have to tuners and if you download the soft ware theoretically it can still only have one unless your laptop / pc is connectted aswell but then you have a split in your media storage. i am very con fused by this any way as already pointed out get the ps3 its far far better

I only use gaming consoles for... Gaming. I couldn't care less if yo can email, surf the web, watch films on it... I have computers that will always do that a million times better than any console.

At the moment the 360 has more games and in general better games, as has been said Sony in their finite wisdom make the SDK very hard to use, so you won't see the true potential of the ps3 come out for a good couple of years, by which time the next xbox will be close to production.

The other side of the coin is cost of course, you pay a couple of hundred quid more to have the luxury of blu ray on a gaming console... Kinda pointless if you ask me... Too much fluff.

Then the final (and for me most important) point. Microsoft (regardless of what people think of them) have been extremely good to their console customers. With the original xbox any customers who bought one at the release price were given 2 free games and a control pad as a consellation when MS dropped the price of the unit (no effing way on earth Sony would ever do that). With the current g1 xbox 360s (which tend to fail from red ring of death) they will repair them for free, out of warranty... You see they really do care about their customer base when it comes to consoles, they have made a loss on every console ever made - would Sony do the same? Hell no, they are too busy serving cease-and-decist orders to any poor sod who tries to import a console lik-sang.com).

I'm not saying MS are saints. When it comes to Windows I thikn that many of thei programmers deserve to be executed, but in the console world they have been by far the best to deal with.
