But you should probably get either a high end PC or PS3.



Apart from Ghostbusters I can't think of any other recent games that have had such a noticeable difference.



The differences between any multi platform ps3 and 360 game are always incredibly small and completely insignificant.
I fail to understand why people even take screenshots of games showing off how they compare.
It would be like you and a friend buying a sandwich, the winner being the person with the most mayonnaise...

What if you don't like mayonnaise?

Microsoft decided to charge extra for this feature? Did you forget which existed first? Xbox Live or the Playstation Network. People keep using the paid service as a huge negative against Xbox Live but they never mention that it's worth it.

Honestly though, I prefer Xbox 360 but come this January I'm going to have both. The console wars have ended, everyone just stop. This is pretty stupid. Fact of the matter is, the graphics of the console are based anymore, entirely on how much work the developers put into the game and which system they are bias towards when it's cross platform. Power means nothing if it's not utilized. Exclusives mean nothing if you don't care. Online is pointless without friends on the same network.

If you don't want to go wrong at all... just stay with a PC because someone will always be quick to tell you how much your missing because you picked the "wrong console" and it's very irritating.

You're the one making it look like a console war. It's been pretty civilised up until your post Calm down, it's nearly Christmas

Really? Are you really going to say that? Seriously... Adam, you love to make me out to be an asshole. Nothing in my post was "uncivil".

No, you just have a completely aggressive tone to most of your posts, and blow things out of proportion.

Stupid? From the beginning it was already determined that this would not be a console war, it would be a "which one should I get since I can only get one" specifically for Nim. Nobody said anything out of line, but it would be much more pleasant if we kept on topic!

Nim, would you plan on using this system solely for gaming? Media streaming and whatnot might come into play, you know. I think we already talked about Bluray.

I have both a 360 and a PS3.

As it stands I have 86 Xbox 360 games. I love the Xbox Live service (yes, you do pay for the ability to play online against others but its very well done and equates to about 10p a day to play it online). It supports XNA, allowing anybody to put their games on it in the Indie Games section, but you have to pay to do this. And Clickteam will be working on an XNA runtime too, which I'm very excited about. I love the controller. It moulds into your hands. It has a great selection of games, and many of them. I prefer its Achievement system over the Trophy System, but I can't really explain why. I feel the Xbox360 is the greatest console ever - apart from the reliability. I've had to get it repaired twice, but Microsoft gave me 1 months Xbox Live for free as compensation each time. And it's noisy. But they're cheaper.

I only have 9 PS3 games. My PS3 died as soon as I turned it on for the very first time so had to take it back, but GAME replaced it with a different one. I think the Six-Axis controller is very gimmicky, prefer the Dual Shock 3. It's very quiet. It has a built in Internet browser. Playing games online is free but the service isn't quite so good, ie, Sony don't tend to ban idiots. It has LittleBigPlanet, which Adam rightly enjoys. It plays Blu-Ray discs. The PS3 is technically more powerful but I haven't really seen any games or graphics that couldn't be done on the Xbox 360. Then again, the PS3 has untapped potential. I love my PS3 too, especially as it's backwardly compatible with PS2 and PS1 games (although current consoles don't support this).


My conclusion? I love both consoles to bits for different reasons and I'm lucky enough to be able to have afforded them both at the time. Do some research Chris, make a list of all the positives and negatives from the comments people here have made. In terms of reliability a PS3 is your best bet, but its not just about that, it's about the games, and for me, even the controller. When multiformat games come out I nearly always get them for the 360.

If I were Jeremy Clarkson, I would probably be saying something along the lines of "The 360 is a great boys gadget that can hold your entertainment for a very long time, but the PS3 is a MANS console. It reeks of class, integrity and maturity."

If you're an immature man, such as myself (lol) then get both!

No, you always take it that way though because it gives you a sense of accomplishment to point it out. How about not responding to none of my posts directly, and see how much less aggressive they get. No seriously, try it.

Stop trying to play innocent Brandon. You know exactly what I mean by aggressive tone, and you know that I'm right.

Acusing people of yet another console war, when people were merely voicing their opinions on their favourite console/games in a civilised debate (if you can even call it that), and you have to come along and make it look like it's more than it is. Did you even read the first post? Nim asked people for their opinions on the two consoles, of course they're going to be compared.

Just get back on topic or don't bother posting, please.
