    ^^^Exclusives for each system

    Basically if you want to save more money and have a wider variety of games, PS3 is your choice.

  2. I think the PS3 is better because you get more bang for the buck. Online play is free, you get a built in blu-ray player and with mine I can play all of my PS and PS2 games. The X-Box you have to keep your old systems handy to play your old games. I like a choice in this and I choose to have one system play al of my games. It saves space and time.

  3. I have both an XBOX 360 and a PS3. For me it has to be a PS3, because you also get a Blu-Ray Player and an Internet Browser. A PS3’s lifespan is at least 5 times longer than the average XBOX 360, which I have found to be quite useful. I have gone through 3 XBOX 360’s since I bought my first one when it was released and I use my PS3 far more than the 360.

    Plus – with the PS3 you get access to games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Motorstorm and Killzone 2!

    Hope this helps!

  4. WARNING: I’m not bashing the Xbox 360. This is all based on heavy research and factual statistics. It’s all for comparison’s sake.

    This answer helped many others (Best Answer’d a bunch of times). Maybe it can help you. Read carefully, there is a lot of writing there:

    There’s no question that you should pick up a PlayStation 3.

    Some of the best reasons:

    ~Price – For $300, you get everything you need in a console. It has bluetooth, wifi, free online service, netflix, Life with PlayStation, PS Home and more for just that one admission tag of $300. All of those named above and much more is available for no extra cost.

    ~Reliability – Under 10% compared to the above 33% and possibly 54% (estimation) on the 360, you won’t have to worry too much about your PS3 breaking.

    ~Life Cycle – It will last you longer than any console you have right now. Launched in 2006, the PS3 will go on well past next year and into 2016 and beyond. The Wii is expected to get dumped for a new Nintendo console by 2011 at least, while the new Microsoft console is also expected for 2011.

    ~Online Service – PlayStation Network. It’s free, it’s fun, it’s lag-free and it constantly grows. When signing up, you get treated to PlayStation Home, free demos and videos, movies, TV Shows, music, Netflix and more. PSN runs on dedicated servers, which gives gamers an almost entirely lag-free experience. Only downside is that the developers choose when they want to bring their servers down.

    ~Games – The PS3 now has the highest rated exclusive game of all time (Uncharted 2: Among Thieves). Other AAA titles/franchises include:

    Metal Gear Solid 4




    Killzone 2


    Ratchet & Clank


    MLB: The Show

    Heavenly Sword

    as well as upcoming titles. Those games up there are just some that I would recommend to you. Very well worth it.

    If this was 2006-2007, I would tell you to get an Xbox 360. It is now 2009, and the PlayStation 3 is a whole new beast.

    For $300, you get things built into your system that the Xbox 360 would cost more for. It costs more to maintain and enhance your 360 experience, and the games feel slightly outdated in this day and age.

    Blu-Ray is not on the Xbox 360, so if you ever want to watch a Blu-Ray movie, it would cost you a whole different standalone product, unless you get the PlayStation 3.

    Uncharted 2 is praised as being the best looking game on any platform to date. Recently, it became the highest rated exclusive game of all time, with a 97% metacritic score. Yes, that’s above Halo and Mario. Many more games will be released both exclusively and multiplatform for the system well after both the Xbox 360 and Wii are gone.

    If you like taking trips to the past, PlayStation 1 (and soon PS2 & Dreamcast) games are accessible through the PlayStation Store.

    Many people say that it isn’t worth getting a Slim model because of no Backwards Compatibility. First of all, why buy a PS3 if you’re deciding factor is to play PS2 games? That’s what a PS2 is for. And second, you won’t be using it nearly as much as you think. I thought the same thing because I have a ton of PS2 games. However, I use the BC on my PS3 about twice every 5 months or more. Well, it’s coming back in 2010 anyway, so you won’t be without it for long.

    $60 would buy you a game with all it’s features on the PS3. On the 360, you would have to give Microsoft an extra $50 annually for the privilege to use that game to it’s full potential.

    $200-$300 can buy you a console with features that would cost you extra separately and a failure rate well over 30%. Or, it can buy you the 3rd fastest selling console of all time (believe it or not, but it’s true. PS2 is number 1, Wii is number 2) with less than 9% failure rate.
