theres a thread already existed but anyways i'll give you points

PS3: feel sorry for those people who bought a 600 ps3 cuz now its like 400. no good games that separates it from 360, has MGS4. no good games are out yet thats only for the ps3. look out for FF XIII but thats about it. online is cheap. blue-ray i can't say anything about that becuz i don't use it. blue ray disc holds more Megabytes than a hd dvd. the library of games for the ps3 is scarce. give it "another year" for it to make good games------yeah right another year for the ps3

360: wide varriety of games (becuz it was released earlier). their customer staff was the shittiest until they extended the warranty to a year (still they are shitty in customer support) online is not free but you can pay $50 for 13 months $20 for 3 months and $8 for 1 month. most ps3 exclusive games are going to the 360 Example: devil may cry, resident evil and GTA IV (well idk about that one) 360 may get fucked up if you use it to much like 7 hours a day. it over heats and then you have to send your shit 360 back to microsoft and wait for a month to get a new one.

Graphics: are the same but ps3 has a slight lead cuz its a blue ray disc.

Ps3 VS 360------Neither. use your money on something else. go out with a girl and buy her something meaningful

PS3: High Specs but not enough games right now. Look at it this way, you got a supercharged gamesystem that for a game to use all the specs of the system, it would take millions of dollars in production and years to finish (its like game system from the future). One of the great games on PS3 (and totally worth it from what i have seen) is MGS4 (the graphics and gameplay are so amazing, that some fat kid is probably crying in his living room reading the manual and praising to the jesus of video gaming history). Although it is speculated a dimmer down version of it would be released on XBOX360 one day (which i hope), i kinda doubt it because having a 8 DVD disc collections set for the whole MGS4 is kinda excessive (alright alright i don't know how many DVD's it would take but it would definitely go over 4) and would probably create cost overruns.

XBOX360: Great games and right now has the strongest line up (Gears of War). They need to fix the issue of the "gremlins" (quoted from Yatzhee) because my xbox360 had a meltdown once =P (good thing i was pestered into a warrenty). Graphics are still pretty good but not as great as the PS3 (but good enough to make u smile). So look at it this way. Right now the PS3 is idle and games are trickling in, Wii is like the babies shithole where people like to stick wag their way to victory. So i would say XBOX360 is the strongest console on the market right now and terms in quality and price it pretty much stomps on all the competition.

Wii: Assume that playing tennis with a universal controller is better than playing real tennis (if you want to all aspects of Wii's motion sensitivty, there is a better console called "THE EARTH" ). And assuming that the only games out there that nintendo fanboys would die for (Zelda and Brawl). Its just another fricking nintendo remake where princess zelda needs to be rescued and nintendo characters (including those you never heard of) beat the crap out of each other all day (so don't expect the big changes in nintendo's "game" line up). The only game worth playing on the little white birdshit of nothingness is No More Heroes and that is about it. 1 game out of 100000 disney, nintendo, puppy dog crap games. Try playing "Far Cry" on the Wii and you'll cry and think this was made in the N64 era of games (because having people with polygon faces in this day and age is sorta like playing pong on a high performance PC, except replace the phrase "high performance PC" with "two rulers and a rubber ball" and you pretty much have the best analogy for the Wii).

Final Word: Your choice:

Your choice !! Why ? because your smart enough to not get a Wii. Sure the Wii is so user friendly that any child or old person could actually play it with the knowledge of moving his hand left and right (which is why it sells so well with 46% of sales in the beginning of the season went to people 40-80) and your girlfriend (if you have one) might actually take interest in it ( for 5 mins until she realizes that no matter what direction she swings the damn controller it always does the same actions for most crap games).

Or you can buy something nice for yourself as apposed to a temporary fling. It's simply preference. Millions have already compared, its up to you to choose what you prefer. Whatever you think will make you happier, and then go for it. E3 is next month I think. Why not wait until then and find out what the big 3 are planning this year.

To all those who said "Get a Ps3, just for MGS4", I find it stupid to spend 499 dollars to buy a console with one game, even if it's epic.

Right now, the Ps3's game library is really lacking. Yes, the epic MGS4 is out, but other than that, there's nothing 'exclusive' you can play. Maybe warhawk, but I heard it gets somewhat boring rather quickly. However, it's lineup in the 09 is fantastic, and great. Unfortunately, the good games for the PS3 have been delayed till 09, such as FF13, FF13 versus, Killzone 2, etc.

The 360 does indeed have a better library of games, yet it obviously has some problems with its hardware. Of course, they fixed most of the new 360s, so there's a less chance of getting a RROD, although it's not perfectly fixed. There are some good games coming out, like Fable 2, GOW2, etc.

And to all those that say PS3 is made for RPGS, and 360 for Shooters, you do know that the 360 has more RPGs than the PS3, right?

In conclusion

PS3:
Pros-
- MGS4
- Blue-ray
- Great games coming out for it in the near future.

Cons-
- As of the moment, its game library isn't as wide as the 360/
- Still fairly pricy for a console.

360
Pros-
- A better game library
- Cheaper than the ps3
- Three year warrenty (Is this still around?)

Cons-
- RROD
- Having to pay for online. (But you get what you paid for. Good services)
- Hardware limitations within the near future.

I own a PS3 and I prefer it over the 360..true the 360 has more game variety I'll just wait for the games that will come out for it next year....

out of all systems the 360 has the highest chance of overheating. I have many friends who's 360 have over heated(with the cooler) so watch out for that!!

also the 360 is only doing well here in NA, compared to other places(like Japan lol) the PS3 tops the 360, in my opinion the PS3 came out too early!(believe it or not) because all the the smash hit games like GOW3, MSG4(though this is out), FFXIII, FFXIII are kept on being pushed back (and finally are coming out next year!!!) also many complain about the PS3 being too much money, but if you think for a moment if you continue to pay for online with the 360, it will eventually surpass the PS3's prices

true at the moment the 360 has more RPG's then the PS3 but it's just because Microsoft has payed compaines like Square-Enix to have the games released on the systems first so many thought to be 360 exclusive like Eternal Sonata, Tales of Vesperia, Lost oddessy(maybe..not sure on this one) are coming out next year for the PS3...and many people/companies say that 2009 will be the year for the PS3, PS3 have also been on the rise.

MY THOUGHTS ON SONY(PS3) TOPPING MICROSOFT(360) did this because I was bored...

1) Microsoft has discontinued games on the original Xbox making all Xbox fanboys(and girls) forced into buying contributing to the 360's leads on the PS3(that and the PS3 has a small gaming selection)

2) Mostly all games that come out on the 360 come out for the PC later while sony has the PS3, PS2, and PSP. true both the PS3 and PS2 share the same games. BUT Sony is making money off 3 systems while microsoft is practically making money off of one. and they PS2 will not be discontinued until late 2009 to early 2010.

3) (continuing from #2) True Microsoft has its PC games but as I said before mostly all games that come out for 360 come out a PC later. while both nintendo and sony have there own different brands of systems( PSP and NDS) which opens up new games that are not on the main gaming consoles, and it's too late for microsoft to make a handheld system since both the PSP and NDS would have such a demanding lead. and what would you rather have? and NDS lite or PSP slim, or lugging around a laptop?

4) recenly Microsoft has been paying companies to have RPG's released on their system earlier while Sony has hardly done/say nothing about it.....you think microsoft's the only billion-dollar corp.? sony obviously could've done something about it but they haven't; either they're too cocky or they have something planned

5) Hardware limitations will be a problem for the 360 in later years, the reason why games that come out from the PS3 have so much memory: like GTAIV, DMC4, Assassins Creed, Oblivion, is that it comes with another set of gaming data that relieves the system of doing all the work which the 360 does not do(well I could be wrong) leading to the cause of it overheating or having the highest percent of overheating

6) true the 360 has more RPG's then the PS3(at the moment) but that doesn't mean anything if the main majority of 360 owners are playing FPS like Halo and COD 4. for an example I went to 5 gamestops in search for Enchanted Arms, all sold out for the PS3 but many copies remain for the 360 version on the shelves(same with Folklore...though that didn't come out for the 360)

could keep on going but now I'm bored and too lazy to type

Actually, 360 is doing well in a few other countries in the world as well. I used to live in South Korea, and almost everyone prefered the 360 over the PS3. And the only reason why the Japanese hate it, is because they see of it as nothing more than a Shooter console. There was a mail from a Japanese student, who greatly prefers the 360 over the Ps3 (Last year). He explains that people here don't like shooters as much as they do in NA or some other countries in the world. There are lots of good games, but neglected, since there just aren't enough RPGs that interest the people.

And Japan doesn't like Microsoft, because of the Dokdo Island incident last year.

True, that it still has the highest chance of overheating, even though they did fix almost all of them. It's a sad thing, really.

And yes, it's true that the 360 pays the companies to make games exclusive for them, or make them only for the 360. But that's actually a good thing for us, since we may get more games. While Sony, depends on the company relationships, and hardware superiority. That's why lots of PS3 exclusives go to the 360. Not all of them do, for eg. MGS4, but a lot of it did. Not saying the PS3 will lose all it's exculsive or anything.

You're paying 50 dollars for 13 months. And since the PS3 with MGS4 is $499+tax= $550 (canada), and the 360 is $450 with Halo 3, and 2 years and two months, it'll cost "more". That's a long way to go if you ask me. And the 360 Online services are better. The returns and fixing stuff maybe shitty, but you get what you paid for on Live. And besides, the Live goes on sale every now and then (around here anyway.), so you can pick up more at once.

Some of what you said is true, and some aren't, but one thing I agree, is that the year 09 and afterwards, the PS3 will lead. The Wii is having some difficulties as of the moment, since it's supported by first party, and almost no third party. The 360 has good amount of both, and the PS3 has both as well. As I was saying, due to the Ps3's hardware, the 360 and the wii will fall.

Even so, I still prefer the 360 over the PS3
