I know the title looks like spam but I'm not here to give you a great deal on one sorry. ;)

I'm looking for something to do during the winter months when it's too cold to do anything else. Pretty much a good time waster.

Any gamers here? Anyone have one or the other? Or maybe both?

So far from what I have found the 360 seems to have a ton more games and the PS3 a bit better graphics and the bluray player. Hopefully if the budget allows (tax return) for it I will be getting a 46" Samsung LCD (LN-T4671) to play on also.

Thanks for the input!

Well I have all 3...the Xbox, PS3, and the Wii.

-Xbox has more games
-PS3 has awesome graphics but few games. I got it mainly for the Blu-Ray
-Wii is fun as hell....especially with a few drunk friends! :bigups


I like the PS3 over the Xbox becasue of the controlers....having a PS, PS2, and now the PS3 I just like the way they fit you hands.

Lucky!!!

I was all set on the Wii but it doesn't look like fun unless you have people over. That and I'm not sure I want my friends swinging the controls around. lol

I'm not a hardcore gamer. Just something to kill time. I'm looking forward to the new GTA game and Battlefield. Those are on both platforms so it's a toss up. Maybe a racing game or two and I'll be set.

Thanks for the info!

No prob!

I really don't play the Wii unless it's with other people. I have 2 roommates that each bought a controler and my g/f bought one too so it works out great. I'm not a big gamer either and when I have time to game alone I chose the PS3. I just bought NFS Pro Street and have been having a blast with that. NHL 2007 is fun too. I think I only have like 5 games and I maybe play it once or twice a week. GT5 is coming out soon and I'm looking forward to that....now all I need is the Logitech - G25 Racing wheel and this set up for my living room....I bought a 62" DLP 2 years ago so it will be like a true racing sim. :D

That's crazy! Party at Rasky's when you get that!!!

I was set on buying the 360 a few weeks ago but now am more leaning towards the PS3.

GTA is wrong in so many ways but it's a blast to play. Just checked out that Pro Street game, that's going on the list too. lol

Well, I bought NFS Pro Street and Call of Duty 4. I've mostly played NFS for the most part. To me, the game is pretty boring. The graphics are not that impressive even with my 8800GT and everything maxed out. The plot also stinks. The main character, Ryan Cooper, is the name of one of my high school friends. How weird is that?

I'll probably start COD4 next week. So far, the graphics are insane and everything looks just look a movie. It's also rated very well.

I forgot to mention, Gears of War is a must for any system!!!!

I play PC games. Just made an upgrade on my hole system, was saving money for a year now and when I put it all together it's going to fly.

Between PS3 and Xbox360, I have friends that have both and Xbox360 has more games, it's true but it's like having so much problems lately, like they heat up and the 3 red lights come out! If you are playing with friends sometimes out of the nothing PUF!! the red lights blinking so that's not cool! jajaj

PS3 has less games, but a least you don't get this problem that Xbox360 has.

It's all up to you really, look all pros and cons, and look VERY WELL at the games! because if you like more the games that come out for Xbox360 that should be your choice, same as PS3.

Just to say, COD4 is a MUST!!! that game is INSANE! Have it for PC, and it's amazing, crazy like it's a very big jump in technology and new effects and graphics, sound, and like always COD has a very very good story for Single Player, aside from this, COD4 is made more for MultiPlayer.

Bottom line, it's really up to you, you are going to hear a lot of different opinions and things but what I would do it really see the games that are out and coming out on both platforms, if you like more the games for one that that should be your choice, doesn't have real much sense if you like the games of the Xbox360 and buy a Wii just because you want to move your hands jejeje

Good luck on your decision Scott and tell us what was your final choice when you decide.

I would go for PS3 hands down, I was just in my friend's house yesterday playing Uncharted:Drake's Fortune and it was just awesome man! If there are a few games in the PS3 format now its only a matter of time before they come out with more games. :bigups

One thing I hate about the x360 is the fee for online service. I can however say the content online like movies, tv shows and demos makes up for it. I have DL'd tons of really good interesting Documentaries and demos on my hard drive. Online is really the way to go for gaming.

I have a Wii and a 360. The Wii is good for when people come over, and the 360 is just awesome all around. I think the 360 is the way to go, the library is already rock solid and it is still getting better.

PS3 is awesome...I'm at my uncles house in Arizona right now and he has it. The $32,000 70" Sony HD TV (http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=11040914) and full built in Bose surrond sound in his house help the experience a lot but it's still a great console. At home I have PS2, but I'm looking at getting the PS3...

Good choice, Scott!!

Not sure on this one. Heard good and bad on both. My brother in law and my brother both like XBox 360 over the PS3.

I still have Nintendo and have an old Atari in storage someplace my mom found our old pong game.

Pong anyone?????:D

Joust??? LOL.

I play games on the computer, played DF2 online with some buddies, haven't played in a long time. I have DF Black Hawk down, Call of Duty, had Ghost Recon, uninstalled it though and Marine Sharpshooter, not the greatest graphics, but hard to play, for me anyway.

XBOX 360 Elite FTW! I'm new to the detailing world but when it comes to gaming I know a few things. There are pro's and con's to both machines but the 360's hardware is superior in every aspect except for the optical drive (1xBlue Ray vs. 12xDVD9). If Blue ray doesn't win the HD war with HD DVD this could be a problem down the road. Read: VHS vs. Beta Max.

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/617/617951p1.html

With third party games (cross platform) they look better on the 360.

http://www.gamespot.com/features/6162742/

Game developers also favor the 360.

http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-348-1.htm

Combine all this with the greater game line up for the 360 and the on-line gaming (this is no contest BTW) and the answer is simple.

Also as already mentioned first game purchases should be Call of Duty 4 (the best and most realistic combat game I've ever played), Gears of War (visually stunning), Rainbow Six: Vegas and Halo 3.

It's tied 22 - 22. How can that be! Blu-ray is way ahead of HD-DVD in the format war. Plus PS3 is the only future proof Blu-ray player currently out.

It's neat to see it divided so close.

If you want a Blu-ray player get the PS3. If you want a better gaming experience (all things considered) with the best on-line experience going get a 360. I've played both and the 360 takes it in the gaming aspect.

like a previous poster stated, if you want to have fun with a lot of people; Wii is for you. It has a lot of fun games that can keep you constantly entertained. If you dont really care much for HD then get a Wii, cause what it doesn't have in graphics, it makes up for it in fun.

However, if you want a HUGE library of excellent games with awesome graphics, get the Xbox 360. Not only are you getting great games that look awesome, you can also enjoy them online. The 360 has an excellent online service that makes your game experience a lot more fun. Yeah there are things that cost in their market place, but they also have free stuff available. And if you dont want to play any of their game titles, you can play lots of fun games on ther Xbox Live Arcade. If you ever have young ones over your house you can let them play these if you dont want them touching your games. Anyways, also you have a library of movies to watch that are available in standard definition and in HD. I can go on more but i'll let you experience it by yourself....

With the PS3 you get a nice Blue-Ray player................. thats it.


PS: game developers favor the 360 over the PS3. So let me ask you, which games do you think will come out looking better?

PS3, because Blu-Ray is whoopin on HD. And because it comes with Blu-Ray unlike X360 that you have to pay for the HD. There are more reasons out there, but those should be enough to make up your mind.

HD doesn't have a load up time...

Also, for what you pay on a HD player and a 360, it will still be cheaper than a PS3. I'm not a fan boy of the 360 as i've been a fan of both sony and microsoft for a long time. Though all that went away when sony pushed this "gaming" system on us. After a while i learned that xbox is the way to go. The proof is behind the dust sitting on my PS3.

BlueZero
Feb 20th, 2008, 02:32 PM
Since this came up again.

I still really like my PS3. The load time is a pain sometimes but it probably does you good to look away from the TV for a few seconds. Another thing is it runs pretty hot, and the fan isn't the quietest. Not any major complaints but wanted to point them out if anyone is thinking of buying one.

I just hooked up the the internet this past weekend. That's pretty cool. All sorts of free demo and videos you can download. Also picked up Orange Box and played that a bit. It was a blizzard Sunday and the highways were closed so it was a perfect gaming weekend.

I did end up getting my 5 free Blu-ray movies also. Just waiting to do my taxes and see if I'm getting a new TV.

Feb 20th, 2008, 07:33 PM
And since the war between HD-DVD and BluRay is now over, with BluRay being victorious, you have an awesome BluRay player too!!. I also received my 5 free movies as promised and they are awesome. So good to be on the right side of a technology decision for a change ! :db: :db:

My PS3 is broke! :( :wall:

It won't read any discs. I'm bummed. I disconnected the power for awhile and tried that but nothing. I guess it's not all that uncommon. According to my reading on the PS3 forums Sony will send you a box to send yours back in and then mail you a different refurbished one. I should have just bought a refurbished one in the first place and saved some money. Alright I'm done ranting. :o

Someone else must have voted because this popped up again.

I just sent out my system today UPS back to Sony. I was putting off calling them just because I figured it would be a pain. It wasn't that bad at all. The typical 10 mins. to find my way through the voice mail system but then I was able to talk to a woman named Mary that was super nice. They sent me a prepaid shipping box next day air to send my system back in. All I had to send in was the system, a form and a copy of the receipt. So far I am impressed by their customer service. I'll let you all know when the new system arrives.

To the topic. I would have chosen PS3 as well mostly because of the Blue-Ray. I have not done any research on these systems as I am not looking to buy anytime soon.
Too bad that yours broke down. Good luck with the new (refurbished) one you are getting.

Just wanted to let everyone know that my PS3 is back and working fine. The case is scratched up a bit now, but I'll get PlastX a try on it one of these days. I was surprised that all of my information was still on it. I just figured I was getting a refurbished one back or at least they would wipe it clean. It was perfect timing too, I got it on Monday of this week and GTA IV came out Tuesday.

I didn't vote in the poll because it's a toss up for me.

Right now, the 360(what I own) has the larger game selection, and arguably has had better exclusives in the past, and will have a few killer exclusives for 2008, but as more and more producers produce for both formats, I feel the 360 is going to lose its edge here. Also, HD lost the format war so this makes the add-on HD drive obsolete; the 360 will not be getting an add-on Blu-Ray drive according to the latest press statements.

The PS3 without a doubt has more powerful hardware. Their exclusive lineup for Q3 and Q4 08 look to be killer, and with more producers producing for both formats, they will eventually even up on killer game offerings with the 360. Also, with sony having so many in house gaming studios, we can expect great exclusives beginning Q2/Q3 of 09. Sony's Blu-Ray has won the format war, and from what I'm hearing the PS3 is amongst the best blu-ray players out; the PS3 is worth the price as a dedicated blu-ray player alone.

Here is the clencher for many though: xbox live costs money, there is a subscription fee, sony online is free, BUT xBox live KILLS sony online, it absolutely destroys it. Plus there is a HUGE gaming community that are addicted to game achievements, which the PS3 lacks completely. On the flip side of that, Microsoft has had what, 7 or 8 years to build the xbox live infrastructure, while sony online is still in it's infancy, we can only hope it gets better. I've also heard on the grapevine that sony online will be adding their own version of gaming achievements, no official word yet as far as I know.

Correct. HD-DVD movies will no longer being made. Hopefully some of the movies out on HD-DVD will be put on Blu-ray now.

I've also been reading that Blu-ray sales have been slipping since 'most' people can't tell the difference between a Blu-ray and a normal DVD with an upconvert player. I don't have a HDTV so I can't say one way or the other.

BlueZero,

Are you loving that PS3? I'm now thinking of getting one (have a PS2) and I'm not much of a gamer, but I want it for the Blu-Ray disc (CNET says it is pretty much the best blu-ray player out).

I have a pretty good setup in "movie room" with a 72" rear project Samsung DLP (1080p) but in all honesty I MUCH prefer my 46" Sony XBR4 LCD. I've got an older Onkyo receiver which is decent by not cutting edge and some decent polk speakers. I almsot never play my PS2, but wonder if getting the PS3 is worth it just for the Blu-ray?

BlueZero
Jul 24th, 2008, 04:41 PM
Yes, I am loving it!

I had a Sony 27" CRT but now I bought a Samsung 42" plasma and love it. It really takes advantage of the PS3. I'm not really much of a gamer but I get into it every now and again. I've watched a few Blu-Ray's and it looks amazing.

One more thing to consider is even if you never use it for gaming it can do so much more. It's one of the best upconvert players out right now too. To be honest I can't tell much of a difference between regular DVD's and Blu-Ray when I play them on the PS3. When I play a DVD on my regular DVD player it doesn't look as good. I've been wanting to get the same move on Blu-Ray and regular DVD so I can compare apples to apples. You can use it as a media server too, I haven't really tried to figure that all out yet. My buddy came over awhile back and was showing me photos in his digital camera. I was like wait this thing has a card reader build in, give me that card. We put it in and flipped through the photos on my TV. It's pretty cool, you can rotate and zoom with the PS3 controller.

Mine did break and I had to send it in. It wasn't as bad as I thought. They send you a special box that it fits right in, not long later you have it back.

Closing thought... Just get one, you'll love it! :chuckle1

I will wait for GT5 to come out to get ps3 which by then hopefully it'd drop another $100 or so in price since we talking a year or 2 away.....

xbox is lagging on me on the graphics heavy games though like rainbow six vegas 2 and bad company.... scary bc of all the issues with overheating but I put a laptop cooler under it so it always stays cold to the touch.... microsoft pushed the xbox out too fast without refining it and here we see the consequence.... I dont think xbox can play a lot of the future games because it just isnt as powerful or reliable as a ps3(i hope my xbox doesnt get mad at me for saying that hahaha).... but for now its still working....

Saw that this thread came back from the dead...

I still have and love my PS3! I also have a WII now too. That thing is a blast also! I've been wanting to pick up Mario Cart.

Mario Kart is fun, I play online a lot.

Xbox 360 is overall the best console hands down though.

PS3 is lowering their prices to 300 this summer though :D

I'm getting a PS3 tomorrow!! Found one at a great price. it says it has wifi....does this mean i can play online using my wireless internet? no wires or anything?

also, with downloading games from playstation's website, is there anyway to burn the games to cd?

how many games movies can be downloaded to the 80GB system? Ahh lots of questions.....

Xbox and Ps3 have given me nothing but headaches! I love them both but ugh, the PS3 IMO is still way too far behind on the online community, Live is way to simple and easy to use! I was a diehard Playstaion fan (Socom 2 was my life lol) but it seems Xbox overall is just user friendly. I think PS3 will contend in about 2 years.

oh and super smash bro's via 64. Me vs anyone, anytime.

Yep.

I have not looked into it but I know the games are matched to your account so if you ever have hard drive failure you would just log in to your account and download the games again.


As far as the movies. A whole lot (DVD rez) a whole less (HD rez).

Well I have all 3...the Xbox, PS3, and the Wii.

-Xbox has more games
-PS3 has awesome graphics but few games. I got it mainly for the Blu-Ray
-Wii is fun as hell....especially with a few drunk friends! :bigups


I had* all three. Sold the xbox because it was useless for me since i had the PS3. The gaming list for PS3 has grown tremendously. Besides, playing online for the PS3 is free but 50 bucks a year on xbox. If ur looking for graphics and great movies.........PS3 is far superior. It even upscales regular dvds to higher quality.

Yes, you can play wireless, no you cannot burn downloaded games unfortunately but they are saved to your account in case you ever loose or change ps3's.

Depends on what type of movie quality and length of movie.
