    Suggestions for a #2 console

    I'm sure there are many people here who own multiple next-gen consoles if not all 3. In the past I went Gamecube and then PS2(used).

    As both 360 and PS3 have some interesting games. Just to name a few the 360 has Gears of War and up coming Halo 3, While the PS3 has Genji(just a game that caught my attention) and up coming Final Fantasy 13.

    The Wii is my main choice for console. But!

    Which console would you get to compliment your Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3? and what games would you get to go with the console?

    Yeah at first I was really leaning toward the PS3. Now I find myself looking at the 360 more and more.

    It depends on what type of games you like to play.

    As it has been said before on this forum, the 360 is pretty much known for it's FPS games. If you like FPS's, I would go with a 360.

    Also as far as hardware is concerned, HD-DVD vs. Blueray. Well in all honesty, both of these technologies do the exact same thing. They play DVD's in high definition. My thoughts initially that Blueray will be more of a fad than anything else with HD-DVD edging out in the race for the HD market of DVD's. Really this has everything to do with simply the naming of the technology. People are comfortable with the term DVD. The HD market has grown immensly over the recent past so the term High Definition is now in most people's vocabulary. For this reason alone, putting the two together simply makes sense that it would succeed. HD-DVD. To the average consumer there is no thought process involved in this really. It would simply be the next step in the evolution of home entertainment. (VCR > DVD > HD-DVD)

    The term "Blueray" raises all kinds of unknown questions. Like, wtf is it? Will it play on my TV? Is it a marine animal? You would be suprised to hear the questions people come up with, and these will be the type of people that represent the majority of the market, as the technology progresses and becomes cheaper.

    Something as small as this, I think will be the deciding factor.

    But who knows

    Yes, I do have an interest in FPS, but does 360 offer any quality games in other genre. Such as RPG or Adventure. I heard Fable on the 360 name bounce around a bit. PS3 on the other has some titles to come like Asassin's Creed, Grand Thief Auto 4(I think its available on the 360 as well), Elder's Scroll IV, and Metal Gear Solid 4. Both systems have some great games to come.

    I agree with you, when I first heard about the HD-DVD, I knew it was going to be a DVD but with better deffinition. Blu-ray is something just too complicated, as you said, people won't know what is it, and I didn't know what it was 'til I heard about the HD-DVD.

    And I had to decide, I would go for the 360. The PS3 is good, but the online capabilities of the 360 would make me buy it.

    Just with the 360+Online+Halo 3 or Gears of War = the best online you could have.

    I would admit that the 360 online library is massive. I looked at the 360 games at a local Gamestop and saw about 60-70% of there games online. It could have been more. There's nothing better then taking your games online.

    Besides the Final Fantasy series of games, there really hasn't been any set game that have ever made me want to go out and buy a Playstation 1 / 2 and now even 3.

    I had owned every console made up until Playstation release, and just didn't care for the library of games they had to offer.

    I have an XBOX 360 and I tell you what, if you like FPS games and online game play, the 360 is the way to go hands down. I admit the new FF series is looking to be really good, but do you really want to spend 600$+ on a system, just to play 1 line of games? I don't. I would venture to say you'll have more fun with a 360.
