Xbox 360 is a great console no doubt.
But it has had it's time under the spotlight and now it is the PlayStation 3's time to shine.

(From the top of my head)
Xbox 360 Pro's;
Good Online service (Xbox Live) Price - £40 a year.
Majority of multi-plats look and perform better on the Xbox 360.
Slightly cheaper.
DLC comes out quicker.
& more

Xbox 360 Con's;
Plagued with the RROD error (From my experience)
Stuck with DVD format (They should have moved to Blu-Ray with the re-design)
12 year old's online (lol)
Also the touch on/off eject buttons on the re-design are way too sensitive.

PlayStation 3 Pro's;
Online service is acceptable also better than nothing. Price - FREE
More variety of genre in exclusive titles.
Graphical quality is continuing to improve every year.
(Look at Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3)
Built-In Blu-Ray player to play 1080p movies and improve quality further.
Multi-Plat's are starting to visually look better in comparison to the Xbox 360 (Final Fantasy 13 etc.), also 1 Disc does the job for high capacity games for example Mass Effect 2 (Will be on 1 disc with all DLC where as 360 is without DLC on retail discs with 2 required to fully play) & Castlevania (on a single disc, 360 is on 2 discs) (Final Fantasy 13 etc.)
& more

PlayStation 3 Con's;
PS3 also has a known YLOD error but is not as common.
Internet Browser sucks but can get the job done and is better to have it there and possibly fixed than not at all.
Online service can be sucky but what can you expect from a free service.
Multi-Plats can indeed look and perform worse in comparison to the Xbox 360 but this is due to the developers getting a year's headstart to get used to the Xbox 360's developer tool kit.

As I said earlier both consoles are great.. but really it's down to some personal research for your own use.

I myself own both but have more use of my PS3.
Good luck in your choice and I hope you are glad with your decision!
Happy new year everyone!

Just saw this post and HAD to comment:

To the OP; I have Xbox 360, a Gaming PC, a PS3 and a Wii.

PC > Xbox > PS3 > Wii

The Xbox has great exclusives actually, RPG games like Fable 2&3, some of the highest rated shooting games around; Halo 3, Halo3:ODST, Halo Reach are all exclusive to the Xbox 360. Xbox live is much better than PSN - sure you have to pay for it, but answer yourself my question; what would you rather pay for here?

Xbox 360 + One Year Live Subscription, 250GB Hard Drive, 2 Games, 2 Controllers - $490

PS3 320GB Console, No Games - $600

The Xbox has an extra controller, 2 free games and better online features.

If you want web browser use your PC, like you are now - it's really bad on PS3 anyway.

I think I count as a real unbias vote because I have the best PS3 version (60GB, best model for many reasons) and an average xbox 360.
Lay off the crack. Seriously. You can get a 160GB PS3 here for 180$, with one controller, and one game.

You can get the move bundle for 320$.

In 2 days those prices will go back up to:

229$ for the 160GB

399$ for the move bundle.

Honestly, if you're going to be a retarded fan-boy, don't bother posting. You just make yourself look like an idiot.


Back on topic, honestly, just go with your gut. Don't make a purchase based solely on what other people say. Use what you have read here to influence your decision but don't let your decision be based on what is said here. There are too many people like the poster above on these forums who will spout out rubbish just for the sake of being able to abuse the right to free speech.

Do let us know what you chose though

Question: What is Xbox Live Silver?
Answer: Xbox Live Silver is a free version of the Xbox Live service. The main difference between the Gold and Silver levels of service is that you can't play online multiplayer games with Xbox Live Silver. You can still download content from the Xbox Live Marketplace, download games in the Xbox Live Arcade, and keep a friends list so you can chat and share your gamer profile and achievements.

I personally won't get near an xbox just because of the RROD problems. My brother has had 2 xbox 360s both with RROds.

Well then don't be mad at me because you didn't put that detail in your original post. Xbox kinect you need to be 6-8ft away from the tv to play. 6ft for single player and 8ft for 2 players. PS3 you just need the move controller in hand. The rest just comes down to what has been said for months and years, blu ray? Friends and live?

I rather trust my console made by micorsoft, and if you didnt notice, microsoft is the world's leading software corporation and literally rules like 85% of the computer world! While sony, though makes great TVs, and ONLY great TVs, now is stuck with the responsibility in making kickass calculators and toasters!
this statment fail on so many levels. if M$ is sooooo much better why did the 360 get hacked in under a week after if came out and also when it came out thay had 2000 360 coming back with RROD A DAY!!!!!! i have both consles and i love my PS3 soooo much more. i never go on the 360 because the only thing i liked was forza 3, but i gt GT5 now so my 360 is now disconected and sat on my cubord. get a ps3

p.s. i gt my xbox for free because it was my mates and it RRODed so he gave it to me and i fixed it, he is now on his 4th 360.

Stick and stones may break my bones but your words now mean less than dirt to me..

Plenty of reasons to get silver over gold sometime.

Maby you wanna use an xbox as media player on HD tv way pay for the gold when your only using to stream movies, music, and pics. and sometimes throw in a game for family multi player

System is for a child who you dont want to expose to the online world cause we have all heard what is said by the 12yo already say during online game play..

.....

next time dont be an azz
