Xbox360 or Playstation3? - Page 4

post #31 of 53
You will be happy either way. i would look more towards exclusives at this point obviously. 360 has Mass Effect which im currently addicted to. It also has Ninja Gaiden 2 coming out in june. Lost odyssey, Gears of War 1+2, Halo 3, Banjo Kazooie 3 is coming out in the winter. Those are just some i could think of.

As for Ps3 you Have God Of War 3 which will come out sooner or later, its pretty much guaranteed to kick ass. You also have the Final Fantasy series which everyone pointed out already. Gran Turismo 5 is coming out soon and that looks pretty sick too. Sorry but cant think of anything else for the PS3 as i dont own one and havent been paying attention .

I would go with the 360 for online gaming. But paying 50$ a year for an online service I use maybe every other weekend is a little much for me when PC online gaming and PS3 online gaming is free.

The PS3 will have better online gaming once the sales come up, The PS3 is starting the beat the 360 in month to month sales more and more often.

And in my opinion the PS3 has a better HD image quality. My 360 looks washed out on my 20.1 inch monitor.

Just asking but did you fiddle around with the contrast settings on the 360 itself? I heard that helped some people.

Actually it's not $50. It's $40. That's a whopping $3.33^ per month. What's funny is when someone says something about WoW costing $15 a month theres thousands of people who gang rape the person and justify it then whine about having to buy a new XBL card every 12 months. I know several people like that.

I usually just buy a 3 month or a 1 month here or there. lol i never really think about it. I like how live has a very centralized structure with its online system. I just wish they would put a browser on it! I dont care if i have to use internet explorer lol.

I say get a PS3. The only exclusives on 360 I care about is Gears of War and the future sequel to it, and Halo 3 I guess if you're a Halo fan (I'm not). But PS3 has Resistance (and its future sequel), GTA4 (although it's not an exclusive, it's a super must-have!), Haze (I think this game will be awesome), Gran Turismo 5 (Looks sexy, and I loved GT4), the new Final Fantasy (if you like FF, I personally don't), Metal Gear Solid 4 (looks sweet, and online! Wooo!), the new SOCOM (so ready for that!), Ratchet and Clank (great fun!), and I think there's one or two others I kinda wanted.

The PS3 actually has more exclusives that I want, and most of the other games that I want are available on both (CoD4, Vegas 2, UT3, maybe Assassin's Creed).

Tough choice.

I bought a Xbox 360 around the time Forza 2 was coming out mainly for forza 2 and Project gotham racing 4. Had Halo 3 got bored of it, sold it to a buddy for 40 bucks and also Assassin's Creed which sucked, Gears of War was alright.

I wish I would've gotten a PS3 in the beginning, got a 360 that doesn't have HDMI, so i have some dumb 40 dollar VGA adapter for 360 in my monitor

I'm buying a PS3 tomorrow along with Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, Condemned 2, Reserving Grand Theft Auto 4. Im a big FF fan and I've been out of that loop since FF 10.

I wouldn't recommend an Xbox 360 to anyone. My friend has one that was taken care of, well ventilated that RROD'd on him. Another thing is how flipping loud it is, it's not the fans that are loud, its the damn dvd drive.

So PS3 has bigger hard drive than the 360 Pro , quieter, better exclusive games(IMHO), Blu ray player. The only thing that sucks you have to get a HDMI cable separate or get the component hookups.

GL chosing hope I helped a little

Yea that is also 179 dollars and It doesn't play video games

Fact is

360 is 400
PS3 is 400

PS3 comes with Blu ray, 360 can only play normal dvd's.

I just bought a refurbished 360 for $225 and get a 3 year full warranty for 10% of that. I bought my first 360 right at launch and it lasted over two years, died, I sold it for $200 and bought a PSP(so i would have something to keep me awake at work).

As for the noise issue, your only able to hear it when your not doing anything like sitting on the dashboard. When gaming you cant hear it so it can't be a big issue.

XBL has over 10 million subscribers now and the service is very reliable. That's why you pay for it. You would want to host a major website on some free hosting site that may work, you want your site to always be up and running at 100%. i couldn't find any numbers on how many people use the online "service" the ps3 offers. Sony doesn't have much experience when it comes to online console gaming. PS2 didn't even have an Ethernet port, you had to buy the $100 adapter and after that the number of games that were available online were very small. XBL has been running since November 15, 2002 and has proven itself as the dominate console online gaming service. And for those worried about little kids and the like muting people is a 3 button process that takes about 5 seconds.

So far Rockstar has confirmed 2 "episodes" that are exclusive to the 360. The episodes will be similar to the episodes we saw from Half Life 2. A continuation of the story with new missions and such.

Gears of War 2, Ninja Gaiden 2, Fable 2, and Halo Wars are just some of the 360 exclusives that are coming out soon.

You can stream anything to the 360 via the media center extender. Just set mine up tonight and it works great. You can test how well media will be streamed also.

I was exploring around on XBL marketplace and also in the media center and found many free things and also the ability to listen to music and watch tv shows for free.

In my experience the 360 is much more user friendly than the ps3. First off the 360 controller fits any size hand perfectly. I've got bigger hands and the same controller fits my girlfriends hands who are pretty small. The layout of the controller is also an important aspect of functionality. 360 controller follows the things that worked right in the original xbox controllers and adds many new features that also work very well, whereas the ps3 controller is almost exactly the same as a ps2 controller but with the 6axis "feature".

Oh and I almost forgot sony left everyone who wants to play an old ps2 game on there $600 ps3 out to dry buy getting rid of backward compatibility. Why would they do that? Now instead of trading in your ps2 for credit towards the ps3 you want to buy you have to keep it and spend the full amount.
