    PS3 or XBox 360?

    I was reading the post about NCAA 2008 below and seemed like alot of people like the 360. I am a PS2 player now and would like to stick with the PS3 so I can play old games but if the 360 is that much better i would switch. Also I like the blu-ray capability of the PS3. I dont play online at all but I would consider it.

    Ok guys, try to sell me one or the other.

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    if you are interested in the ps3..i'd wait a few months because blu ray players have dropped in price and it is a strong rumor that ps3 will do the same this summer..

    me personally, i have a 360 and i love it.. i had a ps2 before and it was hard to switch over, but i'm glad with my choice. i really like the cheesy acheivements that you can earn while playing games.. it gives you even more of a reason to beat a game so you can brag to your friends that you have a higher gamer score than they do :)

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    After being a proud PlayStation and PS2 owner, I have to say I'm gonna skip out on the PS3 and get a 360 if I ever decide to switch over. I love playing games over the internet on my computer, and the one thing that disappointed me about the PS2 is its lack of an online player base. Sony just doesn't seem as in tune with the online gaming world as Microsoft.

    360 baby! I like the PS2, but I have left Sony on all products. They have become too arrogant and their support really has left alot to be desired. Ill stick with Microsoft and Nintendo. mmmmm Halo 3

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    I had previously owned the ps1, ps2 and xbox and decided to go with the 360 after seeing the weak lineup of games that are out for the ps3. Let me tell you, I couldn't be happier! There really is no comparison to Xbox Live if you like playing games with friends online. Also, whichever dvd format wins the high-definition war, you will be fine with a 360, as it is an add-on to the console. However, if you buy the ps3 and bluray gets beat out by hd-dvd, then you've got a $200 heap inside your console.

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    so is the online gaming the only feature thats better? ps3 has every game i need so thats not an issue with me. you halo clowns keep buying 360 and drive down the ps3 damand in turn driving down price. i appriciate it.

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    Online gaming, price, games, better support. Sony is already planning their next system to be expensive. Its rediculous. Sony wont budge much on price. did you know nintendo sold more gameboy advances a month ago than sony sold ps3's? Who the hell still buys Gameboy Advances?

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    I also had a ps and ps2. I have since then switched to a 360 and love it. The new controllers are perfect and the gaming is better and faster. Not to mention Xbox live!

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    I have a ps2 and I love it. But the cost of ps3 is a real turn off. Plus, the games just haven't materialized since the game companies build based on unit demand. If I had to buy one tomorrow, I would get the 360. I would also seriously consider the Wii. The sports games on Wii look fun and I like the movement concept.

    Re: PS3 or XBox 360?

    Thanks for all the input from the 360 guys. Does anybody have anything good to say about the ps3? What if I wasnt going to play online at all, would that make the ps3 a great system?

    I was leaning towards the ps3 before this thread, now i am leaning the other way.

    I have never tried online gaming before but it sounds great and would probably use it if I had it. Is that what makes the 360 so good?
