    ok ps3 is less expensive then a 360 cause ps3 comes with wi-fi online etc. in it while if you buy a 360 you will have to buy all these things for it such as a HD DVD drive , PAY ANNUALY for online ,

    plus the ps3 has a cell processer , blue ray (50 times more space then a dvd and better quality)

    -------------------------

    FYI no im not flaming 360
    Hehe most people call me PtoN in my games. and thanks

It plays all you Ps2 and Ps1 games and also upscales them too a full 1080p resolution if your Tv supports it. It comes with your basic stuff, composite cables, 1 controllers, an internet lead and your power cable to plug into the wall. It also upscales Dvds to 1080p for a better picture. The best games at the moment are Motor Storm, Resistance, Virtua tennis 4, Virtua fighter 5, Fight Night 3, Rainbow Six:Vegas(gr8 game) The Darkness, Formula 1 and Ninja Gaiden. Future exclusives include Lair, Haze, Kill Zone 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, War Hawk, Final Fantasy 13(Versus too), Gran Turismo 5, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Unreal Tournament 3. Theres also Gta4, Assasins Crees, MOH:Airborne assault and Call Of Duty:4. Play your music on it, also download Gran Turismo:HD for free off the network(Loads of free Demo's also), the internet is free and there is also things like games and extensions for games to buy online, some are free like Motor Storm timetrial. The new controller is great for Racing games and flying games but thats about it, their bringing rumble back to the controller which is stronger than the older Ps2 rumble with also touch sensitive things so they can vibrate certain points on the controller. Also it looks fantasic, never saw a nicer looking console. You get a 60gb hard drive but it takes 10 mins to take out the old 60gb and improve it with any 2.5" laptop hard drive. Highest ive saw is 250Gb which im planning on getting. The 360 will cost you a lot more to do most of the things the Ps3 can do.
    Does it void warranty when you install a different HD? And is it REALLY needed? Or is more then 60gb more for a media mongul?

    www.monoprice.com for all the cables you will ever need. I got mine for $8 shipped or something like that. Dont fall for the "more expensive cables=better picture/sound", its not true.

    As far as a tv goes, you will need to do do your own research. Theres too many options. I bought a samsung projection tv that supports 720p/1080i. 1080p tv's are too much money right now and will drop in price over the next year. Whatever tv you buy, make sure it supports 720p at a minimum. Most ps3 will support that and not 1080p. Ive always heard dlp is the best type of tv for gaming. I will be buying a mitsubishi projector and a 110" screen for my new home this year.

    If you want the best warranty, buy your ps3 from sams club or costco. They have free lifetime warranties on anything in their store (besides computers). You could return your ps3 in 10 years and get all your money back. (no joke)

    (btw i am wii&ps3, I lost my password, but when I retrieve it from my email it will not come through)
    Hehe thanks. Does it scale them up to 1080i if you dont have 1080p? My budget wont let me get a 1080p, thats for sure :P

    And i thought projectors gave less quality then TVs?
    (And no hard feelings from before.)

    I know how one console can limit the kind of games there are to choose from. With the PS console, i dont feel so limited. Ive seen everything from Elmo's Alphabet Land to GTA.

    When, if, you do purchase a PS3, dont focus on the PS3 games. Look around at PS2 and PS1 as well.
    Well, i went from Anti-Sony, to "everythings cool", to Pro-Sony.. So i geuss anything is possible haha. I dunno, Ps3 just seems more 'fresh' then the Xbox360. I feel if i buy this ill have my money go another couple years longer (Since xbox360 has been out already 2 years and such.) This way i wont miss out on the peak of any game. ^^


    But yeah, does anyone use Wireless on their Ps3? thats my only concern really.

    And i think ill wait till after E3 to buy my Ps3, since theres the rumors going around for a Pricedrop..


    So is there like a friends list or something on a Ps3?

    No, it doesn't void the warranty and it isn't really needed unless you want a bunch of movies and music and stuff on it. Or if you want to install Linux on it.

    I do, it works fine.

    I got mine new off eBay for $500 and I didn't have to wait for the price drop.

    Yes, but unfortunately it isn't unified like in Live.

    In Live you have one list of friends and they are your friends in all your games. But the PS3 has a list on the XMB and a list in each game. So if I add my friend in The Darkness then I'm going to have to add him again in Resistance and again in the XMB. Its not a huge deal, but it is slightly annoying.

    I really... REALLY want PS HOME soon, it looks fantastic.

    The friends list thing does get annoying sometimes though, can never remember which friends are from the game or the XMB
