In all honesty - Why did you buy a ps3, xbox 360, or a wii? I hope it was to play games on - If you bought it for any other reason you got owned before you even forked the cash over. I'd much rather have actual GOOD games to play on a GAMING console than to have my panties in a bunch because im trying to justify my ass raping with "oh it still plays blu-ray".

Mjaority of the globe doesn't even have a HDTV, so by the time Blu-Ray and HD DVD become popular enough like the current format of choice, DVD, you'll be able to get a hidefinition player of choice for $100. OH WAIT! "atleast I was ready 5 years ago when I bought $500-600 Blu-Ray player with a wiress ps2 controller"
I bought a Sony Bravia LCD last year. At the time, I had no high-def material to really enjoy the tv. There's no high-def cable in my area of the world either. So owning an HDTV without any content is silly.

So I picked up the 360 with the HD-DVD drive for games and movies (Even still, while I bought the 360 at the time more games, I use it more for HD-DVDs than anything else). Then the PS3 specifically for BluRay and the network capabilities and NOT games. Games are an added bonus for me. And the PS3 is STILL the least expensive bluray player that I've been able to find. Even the stand alone players are in the $600 price range.

So the choice was really quite simple. Why would I pay $600 for a simple bluray player, when I can spend $600 for something else that can do all of the things listed in the link in my sig?? You say I got "pwned" having bought the PS3 more for bluray and not games. I say I made the smartest move imaginable, aside from waiting for someone to win the content war. I'm impatient in this regard.

I consider myself an enthusiast and early adapter. I love new technology and don't really mind dropping several hundred bones on new stuff. It's fun for me. I'm going to assume you've never watched an HD/BR-DVD on a 1080p panel. If you had, you would understand why it's worth spending a lot of money on.

Oh, and the Wii....I bought that to entertain my niece and nephew. Otherwise, it's useless to me.

All of you people who got an Xbox in 2006/2007 just got OWNED.
With the 3-year warranty, no one is getting owned anymore. Just inconvenienced.

Yes and no.

If you just paid around £300 for a new but potentially faulty XBOX360 would you be over the moon with your purchase lol ?

I cant stand you 360 fanboys.. the PS3 will PWN the 360.. yes i said pwn because once good games come out for the PS3 all you console kiddies will be all over it and say the 360 sucked and you just got it waiting for the PS3...

Do you remember what the 360 released with? CoD2,Halo 2 (maybe) i mean those were like "OMGHAX" you remember?

The PS3s games SUCK right now, but they are about to release a ton of new ones.. and remember the programmers had to learn how to write it for a 8 core cell CPU with one core programmed to be ready if the user chose to return to the consoles main menu.

Now, of yeah your 360 is amazing to play sitting in a MS warehouse waiting for repairs

Sorry mate but with a post like that you do seem like a fanboy im afraid.

The 360 is a great console. Just has had some harsh setbacks.

The arguments some of you guys come up with are ridiculous.

Guy 1: "The PS3 will have more games soon and then it will PWN all."
Me: "Uh, yeah, I like this now 8 month old argument. So what, the 360 won't have any games all of the sudden? Forget about all the lost exclusives? The games that have either gone multiplatform or become 360 exclusives?"

Every console is going to have more games, the PS3 is no exception but Microsoft isn't just twiddling their thumbs saying "hey, look at Sony go, I guess we can't do anything else."

It's called competition. It's what benefits us, the consumers, the gamers.

Guys lose the Console fanboyism.

Both PS3 and XBOX36O are great machines and both have advantages and disadvantages....accept it theres no perfect console.

This thread is about MS having a hard time with faulty 360's. Its not a thread to fly into and scream '' HAHA SHAME ON YOU XBOX360 OWNERS''. If you havent anything constructive to say then dont say anything.
