PS3 lacks the red rings of death, a nice inclusion by MS, denoting this machine is completely fukced.

You can't play films on an xbox

PS3 doesnt destroy discs.

PS3 plays Bluray

PS3 on the last update has BBC Iplayer on the xmb

Having both id go with the 360, massively better than the PS3 for online gaming and ease of use, plus the pad feels easier to use than the PS3. Get the elite 360 though for the HDMI outlet and you're onto a winner! :D

PS3 everytime....

Ive just asked the clever one in the family, he says, PS3 for graphics and sound, online and off. Xbox for PC like capability, online chat, etc is superb.

I just use the PS3, obtain a film, stick on a USB stick, plug it in and watch it.

PS3. HD DVD is dead. Long Live Blu-Ray (though that will soon be outdated as 3D-TV is comming, developed by Panasonic, aparently Sky is already planning 2 Channels in the next couple of years!). Lets just hope 3D discs will be Blu-Ray compatible.

im doing a college course called "preperation for the army" or something along those lines, and because im a college student and im applying to join the army they recruiting folk try to keep you interested with the offers of money, pussy and more money. i get £500 now, £500 at the end of the course and £1000 at the end of phase 1

The course is exellent, run by a couple of guys from 1 SCOTS and ex KOSB guy, basicaly like a more advanced, detailed version of cadets.

You have to take a look at what you want from gaming. take a look at the games that both offer, and make that your primary advice line,
Both have their faults and strengths, as said ps3 has bbc i player, shortly the 360 will have Sky, facebook and all the rest. The ps3 has blu ray if you like your films,
For me, i much prefer xbox, but others will like ps3 just as much

you bloody well can, and if your a smart arse and have your entire DVD library back up and ripped you can plug in your external hard drive and play em through that.

Failing that i stream my media onto my TV via my 360 & wireless network.

but hey, apparently you cant play films on an XBOX :D

Get a ps3 m8, iv had 3 elite systems and all had ring of death. with the ps3 theres no batteries to put in the joypad, web browser, better processor, standard hdmi, looks nicer, a nice normal joypad and blu ray, the only thing better about the xbox is the online you will find more people playing it. my theory is that everyone got used to it before the ps3 came out and started using excuses like....its shit, gameplays bad ect. when it truth they never played the ps3 and they couldnt afford it! people say the gameplay is better on xbox lol. the ps3 has a better processor FACT. plus the people who make the games make them all the same lol. PS3 FOR THE WIN M8 OH AND YOU DONT NEED A ONLINE MEMBERSHIP FOR IT! PLUG IN THE ETHERNET AND YOU OFF!

I had an XBox (got stolen) and now have a PS3. PS3 looks nicer, plays Blu-Ray, and is quieter, but I still prefer the XBox - better games and better controls.

This was a 1st and 2nd generation fault with the heatsink so unless the OP plans to buy an old second hand one this won't be a problem.

Yep you can - It's fully functional with Windows Media Centre, you can also download them from Live

Don't tilt your console when there is a disc spinning in the drive, I thought that would be common sense?

So does your PC for less than £60

Oooh Eastenders through the console..............fair one though can't fault that benefit.


Otherwise.

360 is flashable in less than 15 minutes by even a novice, if you know what a SATA cable is then you are already over qualified (there is a 1 in 4 chance you will get an xbox with a non-flashable drive however due to the different manufacturers of the drives themselves)
flashing is highly illegal if you were to download games over the internet because you were too tight to pay £40 a time.......the legitimate reason to flash your own xbox is to play backups of your legally owned original copies therefore allowing you to hide the originals away from grubby childrens hands....mine also have a penchant for eating the disks........

360 is cheaper

wider range of games

cheaper

fully integral with your PC

cheaper

I'd vote 360 all the way.

PS did I mention it's cheaper.

The new 'budget' XBox 360 arcade version also now has the HDMI output, it is an identical console. The only difference is you don't get a HDD with the arcade, however you can pick up a 20GB HDD now for about 22 finest English pounds (this is what I did and it works fine). Just depends if you intend to download lots of games or content. Amazon usually do offers\bundles with this console i.e. cheap second controller, game free, etc.

The PS3 does have the advantage though of being an overall entertainment centre, games, Blu-Ray, connect to surround sound, record digital terrestrial TV, etc.

Just depends on what you want really, get both! XBox approx 129, HDD 22 and then a PS3 approx 220 (or get one for cheapr off ebay) and you'll still have some money left over for a crate!

Bloody hell, this is worse than those threads wiv the chav speak init?

I like playing god games such as Civ etc. I have to replace my PC soon and am thinking of getting a laptop or a MAC for office work and a console for gaming.

Which console does the god games best? Are games like Civ available for the Mac?

Edited for dyslexic fingers.

I'd disagree with that, I've got both and would say there's barely a difference, in fact if anything, the 360 is better. Some of the PS3 games like Resistance and Haze are AWFUL looking games.

360 every time, if you look after them they won't fail on you, they are cheaper and have vastly superior games, my PS3 is nothing more than a Blueray player gathering dust.

lmao THE PS3 HAS A FAR BETTER PROCESSOR FACT! free net play, free web browser, you dont need to buy movies you download FREE div x movies direct to it. you can put any operating system you want on it. you dont have batteries, blu ray player standard as is hdmi, yeah its dearer than xbox by what 70 bucks! its a newer console thats why same as the you get a FREE BLURAY player! same design easy to use joypad with sixaxis! fck all this crap that you can buy this and that for the xbox, the ps3 have it already included in the price. x boxs are for people who already bought one and cant afford the ps3!
