All about the Xbox, I may only like games like Portal and some driving games but I love the interface, even if it is microsoft.

Plus paying for the Xbox live means if it goes down, there are a lot of people that are not receiving the goods they paid for... unlike if it's free you cant complain so easily ;)

In terms of technical specs, the PS3 is far better. The processor is alot more powerful, it has a built in Blue-ray player, and as the games are on Blue-ray format and not DVD like XBox, there is 4 or 5 times the size of memory, for more detailed games. However, because the hardware is alot more complex on the PS3, games developers, find it easier to write the games on the XBox's simple format, and then port it over to PS3. Therefore, 90% of games look, and play the same on both formats. The real potential of the PS3's power, is only show in a few PS3 exclusive tittles like the Uncharted series.

And although the XBox doesn't have a Blue-ray player built in, you can buy the units separately as add ons. I only own the PS3, and i chose it because I had the first 2 Playstations. However, as an end consumer, now the prices are pretty much identical, there really isn't alot of difference. If you don't have a Blue-ray player, i would 100% say buy the PS3, as you can save alot of money buying one separately. If the Blue-ray player is not an issue, then i would just look at which of the exclusive tittles you would prefer to play, and how the controllers feel.

Although looking at the date of the original post, i'm guessing you've already bought and gotten bored with whichever one you chose lol.

Xbox for me. To keep up tech-wise you would have to alternate between xbox & ps. My main choice apart from thinking MS was the lesser evil than sony was that the controllers are so good on the xbox and ghastly on the ps. I can play for hours on the xbox with the controller in the hand but couldnt with the ps & as a marketing point that should be a big consideration.

xbox, all my friends have one so I play online with them. I can also borrow games which saves me money :P.

Blu-ray isn't missed as I watch online with pc connected to my 37" tv.


If I wanted to watch blu-ray films I'd probably buy a PS3 rather than a blu-ray player worth extra money as you can get internet on it etc.

Xbox all day long, I have both Xbox and PS3, Xbox has better online gaming than playstation and more secure, the controller on Xbox is more comfortable and better layout, even down to the menus its sooo much clearer than PS3, i still have a brand new game unopened on the PS3, i play Xbox (Forza 4 & BF3), as for red rings of death, never had them? Just make sure the unit has
My PS3 sits there doing nothing , the only time i may use it is when DUST comes out from CCP as i play EVE Online too.
Its your choice and everyone will say this or that and have a preference, if you have friends who have one or the other try before you buy, Best of luck

Okay so my opinion on this is my mate has had 4 ( no lie ) PS3's manly due to yellow light of death and once because his mom turned it off at the wall and it broke haha, and all my other mates who own one have had this problem atleast once.

I have had a 360 premium for over 4 years with no RROD, traded in for new 360 S which can't get an overheat error unless you play in an oven. 30 XBL a year goes off my card, don't even notice it.
And who says the 360 doesnt have wireless rechargeable controlers?? I mean Sony didnt even put vibration motors in the ps3 controler!!

Soo many XBOX exclusive market leading games, The entire Halo franchise (soon to be 7 games) Gears of War 1, 2 and 3. Forza 1, 2, 3, 4 ( topgears choice of game ) and soon forza 5
Just look here
http://en.m.wikipedi...enth_generation)#_
At the differences

What games does PS3 have?? Resistance?? That's just a really dull rip off of Halo/COD

Plus samsung home cinema with blue ray is much better than a PS3. So what if it has internet? All new smart tvs have Internet so does a PC!! Let's just face it computers have best graphics, blue ray, internet, fps, better cooling and you can use Xbox controlers on them :)

But for pure game quality, game selection and best online community Xbox wins every time hands down

PC gaming is best as the control method is more natural.
I did have a Alienware gaming PC with Sli twin 1gb nvidia graphics cards, 128gb solid state primary drive, 2tb standard secondary drive, I7 processor, 16gb ram and water cooling.
Sold it 3 months ago to my oppo for 2000 as I wasn't getting time to use it.
Still trying to decide what to get as a replacement.
I personally find consoles too much of a one trick pony.
Have a PS3 but its mostly used for bluray, Internet tv and media streaming from my normal PC.

I defo Agree that PC's have a much better gaming experiecnce and ca do everything and more than all the games consoles combined.
Alienware!!!!! spells waste of money!!!!! Would never buy alienware, not worth it at all. Only thing you pay for is a fancy case. Not as much as a rip off as PC world though!!!

http://www.overclock...id=2040&subcat=

That's a very high spec one but even a lower spec PC from overclockers will out perform alienware. Each pc is hand built and then overclocked to run much higher performance :)

All to our own though :)

Also just as a pointer, sli will never be as good as a single graphics card. Such as 2 gtx560's won't be as good as one gtx590. The new gtx600 range is even more impressive too

The other reason I pushed the gamer over to someone else was because the Sli was not as good as I'd hoped.
Had my eye on an MSI gaming laptop, a buddy has one and it appears excellent for such a tidy package.
He's a hardcore gamer and swears by it.
He also builds his own gaming towers so I may let him custom one up for me.
