      Having only fiddled with both, I would say the Xbox 360, The PS3 (imo) Is not only too late, But too naff.

      Re: Vote: I need a new games console

      Xbox360


      Why?


      - The PS3 is currently way too expensive for a games console. Cheap for a blu-ry player, fair enough, but very overpriced for a *games* machine.

      - The PS3 has hardly any top-notch exclusive games at the moment. Motorstorm is good fun, & looks great. Resistance: Fall of Man is OK/average, & is trampled on by Gears of War (360) & COD3 (360/PS3). Other than that... nothing. Oblivion, Splinter Cell Double Agent, Fight Night Round 3, COD3, Virtua Tennis 3, Def Jam Icon, F.E.A.R., the various EA Sports games, etc. etc. etc.... all out on the 360 too (with some of them released *ages* ago on the 360).

      - More previously PS exclusive games are going multiformat.... Virtua Tennis 3 is already out on the 360, Virtua Fighter 5 is coming to the 360 soon, Grand Theft Auto IV is coming to the 360 at the same time as the PS3, Devil May Cry 4 is coming to the 360 at the same time as the PS3, Assassin's Creed is coming to the 360 at the same time as the PS3, etc. Rumours abound about the future status of Metal Gear Solid & Final Fantasy...


      - The 360 is cheaper & easier to develop for than the PS3, plus has a much larger userbase, plus is selling more.


      - The 360 has more, & better, exclusives than the PS3. e.g. The Halo games (including the upcoming Halo 3 & Halo Wars); Gears of War; the Project Gotham Racing games (PGR1 & 2 on the old Xbox, PGR3 on the 360, the upcoming PGR4 on the 360); Forza 1 & the upcoming Forza 2; Dead Rising; Lost Planet; the upcoming Splinter Cell 5; the upcoming Mass Effect (huge action RPG from the guys behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic & Baldur's Gate) & Bioshock; the upcoming Blue Dragon & Lost Odyssey (two RPGs from Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of the Final Fantasy series); etc. etc. etc.


      - Although Xbox Live Gold (the XBL tier with online multiplayer) costs ~40/year, while the PlayStation Network is free, XBL is currently much much better, & is easily worth the small annual cost. LOL, I even know people with PS3s & 360s who actually use their 360s for voice chat while playing online on the PS3, 'cos the PSN's voice chat sucks.


      Why buy a PS3 now, for four hundred quid, just to play one or two good exclusives, plus a load of games also out on the 360?



      I may well get a PS3, to add to my 360 & Wii, but not 'till next year, by which time the price will most likely have dropped (Sony are going to *have* to cut it, as it's selling so badly) & there should hopefully finally be some decent games for it.

      The only reason I'd get one *now*, if I had a "spare" 425, would be to use it as a Blu-ray player & play the awesome God of War 2 (the PS2's recently released Best Game Ever).

      Re: Vote: I need a new games console

      Go for an X-Box 360. I wouldn't buy a sony partly due to the problems we have already had with the drives failing on 2 playstion 2's, the extortionately high price of the psp3 and also because ' i believe', blue ray bombed in the states when it was first brought out. Am i also right that the psp3 isnt fully backwards compatable?

      Yeh they charge 20% more then the US/Japan and then save COSTS!! by taking the PS2 chip out and using buggy software emulation.
      I just wish they would come out with the 360 Elite in the UK

      Re: Vote: I need a new games console

      Ive got an x360 and a ps3.

      I hardly ever play the ps3, its boring, and theres no games.
      I miss the gamerpoints (sad) and the rumble.

      The online stuff apear amature compared to the x360 portal.

      Id sell the ps3, but i spent loads on it on launch day, and i would loose out..

      I vote for the XBox 360 too, my sister has one and it's great!
