    Talking Xbox 360 or PS3; which should I buy?
    Ok, I'm definitely going to be buying my first next gen console next Wednesday and I need some final advice. Should I buy a 360 or PS3?

    As of now, I'm leaning towards a 360 because they have the Left 4 Dead and Halo series. I don't really mind paying the 50 bucks for the X-Box live membership too. Plus, I like the controller a whole lot better than the PS3.

    But now, I'm having some minor doubts. PS3, of course, has a blu-ray player but I also read that Valve will be concentrating more of their online efforts to the PS3. Of course, that could a long time away but it's just something I'm considering.

    And no, I'm not really interested in PS Move or Kinect.

    Suggestions?

    There will always be PS3 vs Xbox360, just like Mac Vs PC.

    I have an original elite 360 and a original 60GB PS3.
    Hands down I like the PS3 more. I actually don't even use the 360 anymore.

    But as far as the new consoles, I'm really not sure what to recommend... I guess it comes down to what games you want to play.

    Haha, I'm actually convinced by your answer. Short and straight to the point. Next wednesday, I'm definitely going to be buying myself a Xbox360

    Just a thought since neither matter to me but the idea of getting a Blu-ray player and a gaming console in one package seems like a winner plus i read somewhere its 3D upgradeable don't know what impact that would have on gaming.

    I also have both systems and I must say the xBox fails to compete with the PS3 to me. A major influence in this decision is the fact that I'm tired of paying for xBox Live. You say you don't mind it, but keep this in mind when you make your purchase: Microsoft is upping the prices (starting Nov 1, 2010) to 1 Month Gold: $9.99, 3 Month Gold: $24.99, 12 Month Gold: $59.99.

    And another factor in this decision is that my xBox is currently at Microsoft getting repaired for the second time in 1 year! It has been gone for 3 and a half weeks now, and do I expect Microsoft to reimburse me for this wasted month of xBox Live Gold? "Absolutely not."

    PS3 wins on account of dependability, features, price, and aesthetics for me.

    Sorry.

    Depends what games you like.

    I'm a big Gears of War fan, so the Xbox 360 is better for me.

    I have both and have ultimately enjoyed the 360 more than the PS3. Like them both, but if I had to choose, I'd get a 360.

    I don't own either but have family and friends who do. My take based on their input to me is...

    If you are really interested in Blu-Ray, the PS3 is nice as you get both the game console and Blu-Ray player.

    More important to me though is the games available. If the 360 has the Games you are after, then to me it's a no brainer. You can make me the best specced computer in the world, but if it will not do what I need/want it to do, it's worthless to me. I love certain games and would purchase the machine that would play those games.

    Also you seem to favor the 360's controller. You can probably get an aftermarket controller though.

    In the end, I like both machines. On the surface, I would prefer the PS3, but if none of the games I love to play are on the PS3, I would have to get the 360. Both to me are excellent systems though. I just like Sony's design and the Blu-Ray player is another nice touch.

    Sorry for going on and on, but in the end, does it play what you want to play? To me that would be the deal breaker.

    Gears of War fan you say? I had this sixth sense sort of feeling that you were..

    I've got a XBOX 360 as well..the premium..bought mine after my brother bought his so I could just borrow all of his games..and since then have enjoyed it nicely..especially the exclusives like Fable, Mass Effect and so on..though you'd get a nice blend if you buy both the PS3 and XBOX 360 since they each of nice exclusives..

    Regards
