So if you have been playing on the PC all your life and think picking up a PS3 is the greatest idea because you friends have one think about it. I will really play it once every 3-5 months for about 2 weeks then it gets old.

Just something about a PC I can't get enough of!
I used to always play my ps3, but all of my real friends have a 360... Havent played in forever since I cant get used to the joysticks no more
But if the ops current card is not having any issues, then Id get the ps3 for the games its getting this year, mainly killzone 3 and resistance series.

True I guess it's all subjective to what he is playing. Just telling him to take caution because the PS3 was an impulse buy for me, and I don't even use it for gaming that much even when all my friends are always on. Every day they are like "hey saw you online." I respond every time, "yeah was watching netflix."

After Killzone 2 I don't play Resistances anymore. I broke a controller over that game. That is probably the only game where I raged like that since the SNES days.

No games for the ps3, exclusive or not, have really got my interest. Well that is for PS3 and Xbox. So I guess that could be a problem too.

I kinda in the same situation as you. Most of my friends game on PS3. While I did get a PS3 awhile back, I ended up selling it and getting a 280 when they first came out.

Only thing I did was play the games with my friends on PS3 that I couldn't play on PC. Was alot of fun. Is a big plus. I needed money at the time I sold my PS3 and used my PC for everything else including some gaming anyway.

The 285 is still a great card. I'd get the PS3 cuz ur friends have it. Can be alot me fun. Peer pressure, I know. I have yet to really convert any of my friends from their PS3 gaming to the PC.

Get the PS3, a 560 will be more or less a sidegrade from a gtx 285. (unless you went for another 285, which I wouldn't do, personally)

So where did you get your information?

GTX 560 > GTX 470 > GTX 285

Want proof? Google it. Benchmarks galore.

another vote for ps3..although mine rarely gets used anymore..theres really no point in upgrading from a gtx 285 (or 8800gtx for thet matter lol)..blu ray player..netflix..friends gaming online..vs..being able to play the same games with mildly better settings (probably couln't even notice the difference)
