Should I get a 360 or a PS3?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Should I get a 360 or a PS3?

I have a 360 and a Wii personally, and I really like my xbox 360.

It think you should get the PS3. You have an HDTV, and you are going to want to play Blu Ray movies, since you are concerned about utilizing your TV. PS3 is a reliable console- its also the sturdiest of the 3. PS3 doesn't have as many good games as the 360, but it has enough. More importantly, you can play with your friends. I refuse to pay for online and think pay to play online sucks. PSN is free.

I am a huge fan of Banjo Kazooie and my friends have 360 and it was cheaper and it had more games I wanted, but they are both great consoles and I considered getting a PS3. I think in your case PS3 is the better choice.

You need to buy the HDMI cables seperatly. PS3 comes with composite cables only :(

The PS3 is more worth the money too - you get more for the price!

 

 until blu ray movies become obsolete.

 

They probably will, and PS3 will probably trail off and PS4 may not happen due to Sony losing money, but... Blu will surivive, and so will PS3; digital downloads pretty much already make Blu "obsolete" but it doens't mean its not desirable. Watching a blu ray movie with movie thertre quality with your freinds is a great experiance.



go with the PS3
1) you get an impressive stable of games especially with Killzone 2 around the corner
2) Blu-Ray player(will make your eyes bleed when you hook it up with you HDTV)
3)Free PSN and it's almost as good as Xbox Live
4)it doesn't F*** up as much as the 360
5)it comes with the DS3, they don't make the Sixaxis anymore



im a ps3 guy

That's the type of reply I was looking for. Thanks!

Also, to those asking, I already have a Wii, and it's an amazing console. Mario Kart Wii Addict lol.



If you reread your own post you know what console you really want.  It's not fun when you have a different console than your friends and can't play with them.  Hawkeye did explain it best.  You seem intrigued by both systems so I think you would benefit bybuying the ps3 now and an xbox360 later down the road if your friends choose to adopt it as well.  This is one of the few times when I think you should follow the crowd.



I think the question is relative to where you live. Im not sure what it is like in Venezuela but if you can answer the following, it will give me a better ideal.

1. How much are the consoles out there?

2. Can/do you rent games out there?

3. What is the region coding?

4. Do you care for blueray at this time?

If the price discrepancy between consoles is roughly the same as in the US, games are for rent and you have American region coding in Venezuela, then I would say Xbox360. It will save you a lot of money in the long run. Otherwise PS3 because it is region free and its more popular outside the American market. Im just saying this because money seems to be a concern for you if you arent even willing to get internet service.





For all smart people, They own Xbox 360.
Both price and Games were superior than the other one.
