    PS3 Vs Xbox360

    The wife is letting me knock the dust off my wallet (Wish it was my zipper) and letting me buy a games machine. So the question is, what do i go with?

    I have a buddy (yes, it's true) who wants me to go with the PS3 so we can play football against each other on-line, but I am still not sure. During the football game today a add said you can buy a x-box for 100 bucks cheaper than a PS3.

    I have never bought a games machine before so any help would be great.

    it all depends if you want one just to get on line and play your friends buy xbox, if you want that plays blu ray movies, and games, and use it as a browser, get the ps3, i have both i am more on xbox, because all of my friends have xbox and the on line play is funner there than ps3

    I would go with PS3. I have both, and my xbox has been trashy since day one. PSN is not as bad as people advertise it to be, so I would definately go with PS3. It's just an overall better system. Plus xbox live is not free, PSN is.

    I haven't really played games like this in about 10 years ..... i think the fact that the on-line play for PS3 is free makes it the one for me. What does it cost for X-box?

    I only have an xbox 360 and love the thing to death with the online gaming (modern warfare 2 is insane!). But the PS3 at $300 now which obviously has a blu-ray player is an extremely good deal.

    I would have a tough time deciding right now if I had neither of which one to get, but since the majority of the people I play with are on xbox I probably would lean towards that.

    The fact that you have to pay for xbox live (to play online) isn't the greatest thing ever but I bought 12 months + 1 free month for $35. I mean compared to PS3's online community (which I personally believe doesn't compare to xbox's) it's worth the 35 bucks.

    But if you plan on doing a bunch of other things with your system (like tunaphish mentioned you can do) the PS3 is a lot more flexible in that category. As far as the internet browsing goes, thats the last thing I would want to do on my gaming system since it is a lot more efficient to use my computer, but if you do not have a good computer it is a great substitute. If you don't have a computer it actually can ge the job done. I know a friend of mine did that in college.

    But Bobby, I'm assuming your not 89 like your info says, but you mentioned how you haven't played games like this in ten years so I think it's safe to say your a bit older. I would suggest getting your hands on both systems and trying them out for yourself. It's a big jump from what you are used to and expect a long learning curve if your not used to these types of games.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    yes, a hair younger then 89.

    ya, the last game i played a lot was tecmo bowl for Nintendo. great game. bobby humphrey all day. i am really interested in the on-line stuff. but i can see myself taking months inbetween games .... so any kind of a fee would suck for me. that reason alone kinda leans me towards the PS3.
