Need to sell one (PS3 or Xbox360) my dilema - Page 4

post #31 of 38
I've owned both consoles for a while now, I'd never sell the 360, and if it dies, id consider buying another one.

I would have to say sell both. If you're not going to have time to play one platform or the other, then just get rid of both of the consoles. You did say most games you play you'd rather play on PC and there's no reason to keep ps3 since you don't want to watch blue-ray movies.

Personally, I'd keep both... oh wait, i've got all three

ok heres the low down

An xbox 360 has better exclusive and cheaper games/console it also has a better online play and marketplace service. However it lacks when it comes to media and home entertainment. But it is the only console to offer on demand HD movies from the marketplace.

The PS3 has more media benifits such as blu ray and a more home entertinment friendly enviroment. however the exclusive games suck im sorry but they just do you cant compare motorstorm to forza or PGR4 and resistence to halo or bioshock as for Gears the PS3 is yet to release a title that can compete.. also MGS aint as gd as it used to be no 4 aint all that the fans just giv it loads of hype. in my opinion the best one ever made was MGS3 it does also offer full backwards compatibilaty to PS2 games if u buy the more expencive model. which xbox doesnt.

Altho this isnt so relavent the Wii has got the gameplay and the most enjoyable games that the other consoles just dont have it also has quite a good market place and backwards compatability. It will also be able to read your brain waves via a pulse hedset allowing you to control the game with basic thoughts. This is due for release i a few years.

THe PC however has all the media potential of the PS3 but all the xbox exclusives so in my opinion sell both and buy a ton of upgrades for your PC.

Sell the 360. The majority of 360 games come out for PC.
Ever played via XBL with a headset? Its fully of whiny kids.

PSN has a far more mature audience with more adult/mature games. Also, the PS3 is future proof for a good while to come where as the 360 cant really be pushed anymore

I don't have a PS3, but if you expect me to believe that there aren't just as many complete jackasses on PSN as there are in Live and the internet in general, I call bullcrap.

....Wii has NOTHING. It is just as bad as the PS3. Everyone loves the idea of it and wants to play it but it wears off in 5 min. It may have alot of games but, i will exaggerate right now, 90% are dull/boring/LAME.

I read the thread...... and Im not in the mood to comment on every single post.

Simply put like some said in the earlier posts, sell the 360. The PS3 has the Blu-Ray for your TV. Not even going to get into fighting over the games and crap.

Go play Warhawk for about two minutes and you'll have your answer on that one. Not that I really care--I just ignore em--just like I do with XBL.

TBQH, if you REALLY don't care about BD, sell the PS3--you'll get more out of it anyways. The way it sounds to me is you enjoy the 360 more and thats without touching live. Live is what makes the 360 for me.

PS3- media
Xbox 360- gaming

I've always looked at it like this and until Sony starts fighting for better games, I will keep this opp. the same.

(I also understand that you buy the games for the PC anyways--well, like others have said--you may want to think of getting rid of them both. I don't recomend this though. You'll prolly regret it when some of this years 360 games hit the shelves.)
