haha why am i NOT surprised that my best friend ever ADAM said ps3 of course
seriously why is it always like that
by the way the correct answer is: it's a matter of choice
I personally say 360 but that's because it got all the games I love while the PS3 is lacking any title I care about and the exclusive titles it got...well I don't like those. In a lot of cases the graphics of the 360 is better when the games also exist on the PS3. Also the 360 is cheaper and I like the controller a lot while I just hate the PS3 controller but once again that's only a personal taste. There are quite a lot of great downloadable games for the 360 while the PSN network is quite slow. It took them ages to get Braid, too.
If you care about watching BluRays get the PS3.
You like PS3 titles and don't care about 360 titles.
Xbox Live > PSN.
So it's 2 to 1 for PS3 it seems to me so get yourself a PS3 - I think it would fit you the best.
Message I have to add: There you go to PS3 fags, I love the 360 yet I don't force it onto people and I even tell them to buy a PS3 if it fits them better.
Oh also if you want to know about region locking for the 360 http://gaming.wikia.com/wiki/Region_Free_Xbox_360_Games
Also if you enjoy the WII note that Project Natal will come out for the 360 this year. Even though all the videos Microsoft has released look awesome I personally can't imagine it to work as well as their fake footage makes it look like since it's all just compositing and no actual footage. IF Project Natal will work the way it is supposed to - it would be mind blowing- but I can not imagine it at all. It would be too great and until we get something like this to work well oh I don't know...it would be probably 2012. But I might be completely wrong (I hope I am)
Admin Note Please do not submit provocative posts :P
You wrote a lot in favour of the Xbox360 but in the end it was a simple matter of the PS3's exclusive games being better for me than the Xbox360's. I agree with the graphics and controller being slightly better on the Xbox360, but those are things I can deal with when I'm playing LBP, MGS4 and Uncharted.
Yeah, on multiplatform games the 360 tends to have an edge. But can anyone tell me a 360 game that looks as good as Uncharted 2?
And I disagree on the 360 having better controller on one point, the D-pad is worthless. Granted, most of the time you only use it for stuff like weapon selection anyway, but it really sucks when you want to play a fighting game. Otherwise, I'd say they're equal.
- Ok, you must admit that was the most creative cussing this site have ever seen -
One system isn't better than the other.
One is a piece of overheating engineering feces, but has a large selection of games; both In Store and Online. Of course, with the overheating fiasco, you're covered for a few years under warranty. (Helpful!)
The other is engineered a bit better, but still has it's flaws (Drives dying, Over Movie use). The game library is big, and getting bigger. It's online play is free, but it's network isn't nearly up to snuff (yet). Your warranty is short.
Neither one is a "BEST MACHINE".
So it comes down to what games do you want to play. A large majority of titles are multiplatform. So then it comes down to exclusives. Do you want a 360 for Fable 2, or a PS3 for Warhawk (I Love Warhawk. Seriously.)
The 2 HD consoles are so similar it's almost pointless to try and determine "Which one is better". The handhelds though, those are much, much different beasts. They are so fundamentally different (PSP, DS, iPhone/iPod) you could argue all day on that.

At the moment it's not quite there and games still seem like glorified mobile phone games. But! Both the DS and PSP had troublesome starts and it took them a while before finding their markets. I'm interested to see how far Android, Zune and the iPod get in terms of quality gaming. They're certainly powerful enough and development is cheap enough for anyone to produce a game for them.
Also: they need Doom! DooooooooM.
I'm looking forward to see what's to come with the ZuneHD. It's got one of the most powerful graphic chips for a hand held mobile device. Quite frankly though, I'd rather have a variety of devices to do a variety of things well, then a single device that does everything mediocre.
:: I don't want to use a stylus to play games.
Music/Video: ZuneHD by far.
:: OLED screen cannot be beat. Zune Pass.
:: Physical keyboard. I can't stand touch keyboards.
I love my Xbox 360 I've had for a year and a half and it's been perfect. I never really thought about buying a PS3 when I got my xbox One of the main reasons that I got an xbox 360 was because all my friends had it and I wanted to play with them (around 25 friends). I only knew two of my friends that had a PS3
Also I bought it for the cool games. Even though both consoles have a ton of same games, my first game was Halo 3 Love it. Too bad you got a PS3 Nim. We could've played together! Sumo319
I don't know why people have these console wars between the two. In reality, there pretty much exactly the same thing and offer just as good games on each console. (Forget Wii, bleh). I'm gonna go and play with my friends now
Wii is okay for "interactive" games. Some of the titles are pretty decent such as need for speed underground, super smash bros. brawl, or zelda twilight princess. However the graphics cannot compare to the xbox 360 or the PS3. Also it barely has online play, and usually it sucks. Controls are also very difficult and annoying if your trying to play first person shooters (which there aren't many). Before I had an xbox 360, I got CoD 3 for the Wii, and boy did that suck
You cant really add the Wii into this conversation, as it just can't compete. So yes compared to these, the Wii does suck. But I Xbox 360 and PS3 are pretty much simmilar:
-"parties" (from Xbox 360. I don't know what you would call them in PS3)
