    PS3/Xbox 360, might buy one of the two, help...

    I thought that this was the best place for this. I'm considering a PS3 or a Xbox 360.

    I know I could have searched for these answers by myself, to be honest...I have a really busy day ahead of me and searching for myself always ends up in fanboys swearing at each other, or numbers that honestly don't understand. I have always trusted most of you for information and answers. That is the number one reason why I love this site.

    Okay, here we go....

    Games-
    I love RPGs. Morrowing, Grandia 2, and if you want to consider Zelda.

    I like FPSs too. I liked the first Halo, wasn't so fond of Halo 2, Goldeneye, Ghost Recon, Unreal Championship, Metroid Prime, Call of Duty 2 and so on.

    I'm not a big fan of mini-games, That's why I have a handheld and PC for. Although I am interested in Microsoft's arcade and whatever Sony has to offer for the games that look really fun.

    Fantasy games are awesome, I'm always dreaming about good games, I just can't find them lol.

    Online really isn't a must for me, but it would be a nice add-on.

    I don't have tons of money, so I would probably be buying last-gen games for a while. I also want quality, I will buy name brand before generic.

    I like the look of the PS3 much more than the 360, but the Elite catches my eye.
    I currently own a Wii and an Xbox, I've never owned a Playstation and have only played one around 10 times.

    I don't plan on spending big bucks on sports or racing games. I don't think it's worth it, since those games aren't worth zilche after a new one replaces it.

    The 360 doesn't have a browser, am I correct? How is the PS3's compared to the Wii's?

    Does the PS3 support custom soundtracks, (your own music during gameplay)?

    That's all I can think about right now, I'll add more later if I can think of some more questions or concerns.

    If your'e interested in helping me make my purchase, just check to see if I edited my post.

    Thanks guys

    360.
    Online really isn't a must for me, but it would be a nice add-on. (Xbox Live)
    I don't have tons of money, so I would probably be buying last-gen games for a while (lots of great xbox fps games + fable/KOTOR1&2/morrowind etc)

    Custom soundtracks & Ipod connectivity for games is great. + You have Mass Effect coming out in November - The Darkness just out - Halo 3 - Bioshock - too human etc...

    The PS3 would probably have more RPGs.

    The 360 has tons of FPS, though not much of anything else.

    Online really isn't a must for me, but it would be a nice add-on.
    The 360 has very good online, but the PS3's is pretty good too.

    I don't have tons of money, so I would probably be buying last-gen games for a while. I also want quality, I will buy name brand before generic.
    The PS3 is much better if you want to play old games, since you have all the PS1 and PS2 games and almost all of them work if you get one now before they start taking out the Emotion Engine. The Xbox doesn't have as good of a game selection and the 360 just has shitty software emulation so a lot of games won't work or will have problems.

    I like the look of the PS3 much more than the 360, but the Elite catches my eye.
    Do looks really matter?

    The 360 doesn't have a browser, am I correct? How is the PS3's compared to the Wii's?
    No the 360 doesn't have a browser. The PS3's is ok, but the Wii's is much better just because of the Wiimote. That is unless you use a mouse on the PS3.

    Does the PS3 support custom soundtracks, (your own music during gameplay)?
    Unfortunately no, but it may be added in a future firmware update.

    360 - It has a big back catalog of games where as the PS3 is in the same boat as the wii (ie hardly any games)

    The PS3 might drop in price soon

    But I say 360

    The PS3 just got a price drop a few days ago. It is only $500 now.

    I'd take 360 over PS3. For some reasons

    -Game Selection for the PS3 is limited while the 360 already has a strong library.
    -Upgrades: Even though the 360 hardware is crap, the PS3 can add on some more later on, a worthwhile wait. (colors, upgrades, etc.)
    -Price: PS3 will probably have another price drop, $500 for this system won't cut it.

    Obviously, since the 360 has been out for so much longer. But if you compare what the 360 had at this point in its life, the PS3 kicks its ass.

    -Price: PS3 will probably have another price drop, $500 for this system won't cut it.
    The PS3 is much cheaper once you add everything in.
    • Xbox 360 Elite - $480
    • HD DVD Drive - $200
    • Play & Charge - $20
    • Wifi Adapter - $100
    • Xbox Live - $250 (assuming you own the console for five years)
    • Total - $1050

    • PS3 - $500
    • HDMI - $5
    • Total - $505

    Now, you probably wouldn't need all of those things, but that is how much it would be to get them equally equipped. The 360 setup like that would have a bigger HDD, though the PS3's can be changed easily.


    As for the pic about Sony copying shit, that shouldn't matter to you unless you work for Nintendo or you are a fanboy. It just makes the end product better for us.

    If you like RPGs, then 360 NOT ps3.

    Blue Dragon will be hot.

    And paintballer don't be dumb and do the same noob thing the noobs do when they compare the 360 and ps3.

    ZOMG 200 FOR HD-DVD DRIVE. WTF cares about HD-DVD drive.

    Actually I just noticed you are a Mac fan...so that pretty much explains your ability to think logically.
