@ dolemit3 : If the 360 and PS3 were the same price, which do you think would sell more right now? Just an honest question.
This is a real tough one, but I'll give the edge to the PS3. Are you saying $200 versus $200 or $200 versus $300? I think $300 still might be too high for some people.
They can, at this moment, play online for free and it has a blu-ray player.
I think blu-ray player is only over rated at this moment because new release DVDs are $25-$30 or more which is unacceptable when most DVDs are on sale for $15 or less the first week (atleast at wal-mart) you also have to factor in how many people own HDTVs in the US, as they would see no benefit without a HDTV. Blu-Ray still seems ahead of It's time. Till it comes down in prices It's not worth owning yet imho.
However you also have to factor in people will buy a PS3 as a blu-ray player and for very little gaming purposes. However, I think this will dissapear sometime next year with blu-ray players already hitting around the $165 range.
Gaming wise I'll give the edge to the 360 because It's been out an extra year and the libarary is bigger. However, Sony does have alot of recognizeable brands: God of War, Gran Turismo etc.
