Which one should I get and why??? I was leaning towards the 360 because I like alot of sports games, and Xbox live has a lot of perks, but not so sure anymore.

I can't compare, but we have the XBOX 360 with the new KINECT sensor.

It is just wonderful.

Hope this helps!

Ive had 2 PS3's
.
The first one started freezing while playing movies/games and while web browsing.
Then it wouldnt play any blu ray discs at all.

Soo i bought a new one. But it also freezes how ever it only does it while browsing the internet (It has done it while playing games but its rare).

Imo the PS3 is really good - with blu ray player, and nice graphics in games. But the whole freezing / lockup deal is really annoying. Where my XBOX360 never did that.

If you like sports game ill suggest you get Xbox 360 it seems like theres alot cooler games out in that genre

Voted PS3, but changed my vote. 360 Slim finally has a built in wireless adapter, and more quiet as well less prone to RRODing. Live imo, gives me a better online experience than PSN even though it costs around 50 dollars a year. ESPN/ESPN3 is also available via Xbox which is great if you dont have cable. The power brick on the Xbox Slim still peeves me; I dont understand how they couldn't have an internal AC adapter.

Ergonomically I prefer the 360's controller over the PS3's just by the slimmest of margins.
And I really wished the new PS3 were backwards compatible, but it isn't.

I don't want opinions from months ago or from a year ago. I need new ideas and want them based on new technology (ie KINECT and PS3 Motion). So please, keep comments that are off topic to yourself. But thanks for adding your opinion in the end.

PS3

There are more exclusive sports games on the PS3

- MLB: The Show
- Virtua Tennis 4
- Planet Minigolf
- High Velocity Bowling
- Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds
- Gran Turismo 5
- Ridge Racer 7
- Formula One: Championship Edition

The only difference between Xbox Live and PSN is: XBL you have to pay for yet they still throw ads at you. PSN is completely free and ad free. They both work the same.

Get the system that your friends have. If your friends have 360s, get a 360. I bought a PS3 and I barely have anybody that I know to play with because everyone around here has an Xbox. I play online but its always fun to play a few online games with your friends.

With that said, I love my PS3, no complaints about it. I think the big named sports titles are probably the same for both systems but as mentioned above, PS3 has a few exclusives you should maybe look into.

Try to find someone to play online with on the Gaystation 3, Xbox live is constantly full! Youll never be left alone in a lobby! there's tens of thousands of people constantly online, PS network is an epic failure! Not to mention, Xbox has 3 times as any games as PS3, with better xclusives! Hmmm, gears of war, mass effect, splinter cell or halo...or, god of war, and...umm, well....wat else does PS3 have?
