Here we go again. Get 360 on price and it has the episodic content but it has poor reliability. If you want a ps3, go and rob a bank.

It's really all about personal opinion. I have a PS3 and I love it. MisterV has an 360 and he loves it. I think.

It's really about what you want in your gaming system.

Can you download updates for 360 and 3 like you can PSP, iPod, Media Player et al?

Of course! Patches, extras, whole expansion packs, no problem.


@first post: Even with the ever reducing number of faulty consoles i still prefer the 360, it has much more pros than cons, unlike the PS3

Be aware that if you want it to play GTA4 you will probably have to buy the HD-DVD add-on. Although it hasn't been confirmed at all, just look at it GTA4, I doubt it'll fit on a plain DVD.

My opinion would be PS3 because it's more future proof IMO. Still it's a personal choice, PS3 does cost 50% more than a X360.

About of what I've heard so is the 360 a bad quality. So in the end if you buy a 360 you will need to buy a new one in the end...

Anyway that is a choise depending on what game's you wanna play

I don't know whether it will need a HD-DVD player but I'm guessing it does. The game looks huge so I doubt it'll fit on a DVD. If you buy an X360 you will still be able to play GTA4 but you might need to buy a HD-DVD player add-on too.

I already asked you not to talk about something you don't know sh*t about. You will NEVER EVER NEED THE HD-DVD ADON TO PLAY GAMES. Microsoft doesn't even allow developers to develop using the HDD of the premium and elite versions, becouse that would render their core system useless. Same with the HD-DVD, most people wouldn't shell out that much for that addon.

Plus it's technologically impossible, the HD-DVD addon connects via USB that doesn't have the bandwidth to stream games.

Don't spread bullsh*t, please.

EDIT: Please note that i'm not trying to defend the 360 here, i'm not a "fanboy". If you come up with a valid point, i respect it. But this isn't one of the valid points.

Sorry for the harsh reaction, but you already posted this one in some other thread a couple of weeks back and i replied to that one aswell as this, and it's kinda frustrating that you were STILL bringing this up.

Calm down dragu.

@pachellis:

It all boils down to what you want in a console. Look at the gaming lineup for each console. Look at your wallet to see how much money you are willing to spend.

AND Most importantly; RESEARCH. No matter what console you get it's going to cost you a pretty penny. So do research on each console, through that you will be able to judge what you think is better for you.

Yes, opinions on something like this are helpful, but it all boils down to what you want in your console.


Check out sites like: Gamespot, IGN.

Both are very helpful sites with articles on both consoles.

Good Luck. thumbsup.gif

I really have no idea. They both have their severe advantages, and disadvantages. But eventually, we will all buy both so I think console wars are pointless.

Yes there will be multiplayer. I can't imagine how though, but if anyone, then rockstar can pull it off.

Like on PSP. It's pretty fun though, they thought of some nice modes like Tanks for the Memories.

I've stated in the past that I think both consoles are great. I do prefer the ps3 over the 360 by an inch because of the Playstation exclusive titles. I'm also fearing that Mircrosoft will most likely abandone the console once they release another platform unlike Sony which stays loyale to thier costumer base, only a few months after the 360's releases, they totally lost interest in making games for the original xbox. I'm not bashing the 360 though, there are many games out for that system that I'd like to play, but if I were to purchase one of these consoles in the future I'd go with the ps3 (imho). It's your money, so I'd check out more info and see what games you're more interested in playing before making your final decision.

1) It's M$. Not one M$ product will ever have my love.
2) It's all true. It lacks a next-gen optical drive and it has serious overheating issues.
3) I'm not posting the same articles over and over again. Look at the dates.
4) I posted an article about a price cut and afaik that's a good thing.

The overheating issues are gone, but you can't beat the blu-ray in the future. Right now it's not being used for more content yet, they just put the game on uncompressed. But a couple of years later the DVD9 will have SERIOUS issues, i must admit. And i also agree that the PS3's biggest selling point is the blu-ray drive. Half the sales are becouse of the cheap blu-ray player, not becouse of the games console that comes with it lol.

It's not for casual gamers yet, only fanboys and movie freaks BUT if microsoft doesn't do something about the DVD9, i might have to buy a PS3 myself, even though it's not appealing to me at all. I don't like it but i don't hate it either, it's just so neutral and boring i don't care about it and i don't want to waste money on it. Now the 360 on the other hand is an awesome system BUT it will strugle with future games, so i'm sort of in a lose-lose situation. I might just go back to PC gaming.
