have you read my mind lol

just been asking the same question on the games thread, think i am going to go for an xbox 360 as the ps3 doesnt do anything extra (that i am interested in), and the 360 is much cheaper

Reasons please chaps?

360 generally has a higher FPS rate,

Games are generally 1080p and in most reviews when compared to PS3 xbox has better graphics,

Achievement system which is a lot better than the ps3 gay thing.

More exclusives

XBOX coding is tried and tested and games has less performance issues than the PS3 as there tech is still rather new.

The whole for windows/xbox thing as well, you can use your xbox ID to play the windows games

Xbox generally has more "pro" play on it, by this I mean more game tournaments are done on 360, if you are in to that kind of thing.

A much better online friend/group system, a update is coming out on the 19th of next month, one feature is you can all go in to a room before you even load up a game (8 of you) and you can all join the same game from there.

Also if you want cheap HD movies.... Then you can get a HDDVD player with like a zillion movies for pennys!

PS3 Plus points

Bluray player

MGS4 - well worth the PS3 for that one game.

I have had both and for me it's PS3 all the way. As siad above, it's also one of the best blue ray players around and along with the PLAY TV, you have a proper multimedia system and you also have the great games for it.

PS3 - online gaming is free, no need for live etc.

COD4 awesome mindless killing. Also good avi support for external hard drive films music vids etc

Got 360 too but not rally my thing

Most people don't look at it this way, for me the ps3 just feels better quality, no red rings of death or any of that nonsense. I don't worry about it overheating. I don't worry about the battery pack which you pay extra for falling off. The games for me just seem better, for the type of games I want to play.

I have both the PS3 I use basically as a media centre (for which its beats the 360 hands down) and the 360 keeps the kids happy upstairs with game "backups" :)

Theres nothing between them games wise, the PS3 is very marginally better in that respect id say.

I would go for the 360 if your main plan is to play games!
