    im opposite, ive been an xbox fan all the way through. ive modded both my xbox and my ps2 and even before the mods i would say the xbox was better. i own a 360 and its awesome, i have no idea how it only cost $400. the sony is supposed to be listed from $500-$600 which is pricy imo. hands down im going with the 360...even though the ps3 will come equipped with a blu-ray dvd player :)

    Sorry about all those XBOX fans out there, but i think the PS3 is better. First of all, many people say that PS3 has better games and stuff. PS3 also has much more memory. And...if you're an RPG fan, PS3 is for yopu, there are barely any RPG's on XBOX except Fable. If you're a shoot 'em up fan, XBOX 360 is for you. If you like games like The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, XBOX 360 will have much more than that.
    Personally, I would get a PS3 beacuse i'm an RPG fan, but I still enjoy some good XBOX games.

    PS3= RPG

    XBOX 360= shoot 'em up

    PS: Lots of Xbox games are also on PC because Microsoft makes bothe XBOX and PC.

    well I'm still kinda undecided! i like both consoles. first of all the PS3 is only just a litlle but better than the 360. and they both have games and franchises that appeal to me. but the main problem is $$$$$ i have no source of income so wen i do get a "next gen" console they wont really be "next gen" they will be the current gen and the next gen will be the new technologies coming out for PC's!

    dont forget that the PS3 will have a blu-ray dvd player, and the xbox wont, really it depends on what kind of games you like

    X360 will have HD-DVD BTW. It all boils down to how much cash u have and how much ur willing to spend on a particular system. Performance-wise, the X360's 3 cores outperform the PS3 and games such as Halo 3 and Gears of War show promise. Also, would u prefer to spend $400 on an X360 or $600 on a PS3, seeing that Sony's online multiplayer service is not even close to Xbox Live. X360 is already out and will definitely drop in price later on, making it a more attractive console to buy.

    I am a PS3 fan. Xbox 360 uses DVD and no Blue Ray.... a dvd can hold around 8gb well thats good.......................but blue ray can hold upto 50gb so just imagine the amount of detail there will be with PS3 games.I already have a PS3 thts why i like it. PS3 has the graphics card made by nVidia which is the best and 1000times better than ATi and Xbox 360 has the graphics card made by ATi.

    I can't help liking the PS3 more, for one reason: The controller. When I am playing on an Xbox/360, I feel like I have a bulky box in my hands. I love the feel of the PSX/2/3 controllers.

    Another thing is that most games I play on consoles come out on Playsation, such as RPG, some Shoot em Up's, and games like Guitar Hero(come out on both, though). The fact that I play fps's on pc is most likely why I dont need an xbox.

    Ok i agree with other people that the PS3 is better.

    A debate forum :D

    First i have always said technology takes time, IMO the PS3 got that edge it was the last system to come out. Like sum1 already said Nvidia developed its processor ATI did the 360. The 360 been out since 05 so developers know how to take advantage of its components. Developers dont know how to make games that will show the PS3's components yet because they have not had time. why dio u think games like ghost recon keep getting pused back and rainbow 6 vegas??? Only reason why the 360 online is better is because its been out takes heart for someone to win the long race..

    Next if price is appealing thats like the Wii issue because these cheap ignorant people see price as being attractive and dont know the tech specs of a system which means they dont do homework.

    Microsoft rips people off $400 for the 360, a sucky hard drive before the Elite came out and still no BUILT in HD-DVD in any of their systems. So basically if you want the 360's full power you are going to come out your pocket just like you would for the PS3. Just because the price is right does not mean the system is great. IMO the Wii sucks, no "Next Gen" features.

    PS3 has the most recent technology which IMO makes it better in which only time can tell.

    If you have use for a Blue-Ray player, then PS3 is the way to go...At roughly $500 for a stand alone Blue-Ray player, you are only really paying $100 for the gaming aspect of the PS3.

    On the otherhand I heard that the PS3 has a lot of room for expantion while the 360 is kinda running out of options.

    I say screw them both and get a Wii atleast you can get a workout playing it :D

    U would pay roughly the same price for the 360 w/HD DVD player as the PS3 (which includes the Blu-Ray player already !!)

    3 PS3's= 1800. Lol i know u have seen my forum for building a gaming rig. Just bought the Antec900 today, I am thinking of buying the PSU and Mobo next.

    PS3, im just a sony fan and ima own the 360Elite prolly in like 2-3months, gotta buy my PS3 games first. Ima prolly buy my younger siblings the Wii cuz it is cheap and they like videogames like their bigg bro.

    Even tho I don't have either. If i had the money i would most likely go with the 360. The 360 right now is just the better value, since its been out longer there are more games, the 360 LIVE is unmatched imo, the PS3 online just can't match with the 360 right now. Also I love how people can purchase classic games like SF2 and play them on LIVE.

    Say technicaly, the ps3 is better, but let´s put that aside, I mean it doesn´t matter in the end the processor, memory, or interface... as the way I see the things, is just:
    Wii=Controls interface
    360=Online gaming
    PS3=Movie like games
    I really like PS3 graphics...but then again i really like 360 online gaming...and it happend that i do like the new-gamestyle that the wii have... in the end i like all the consoles awww..........
