    If you already have a 360 then I highly recommend getting a PS3. It truly is a great console. But the 360 is just as good: better in some ways, worse in others, but overall just as good and it's cheaper. Not to mention the ever expanding Halo franchise that you'd miss out on without a 360.

    when you get enough money (prinplup pointed out your problem) get a PS3. it's got many great games such as inFAMOUS and LittleBigPlanet. it comes with 1 controller and the cords to hook it up to the tv. thats it.

    Halo isn't worth buying a 360. Hell, owning a 360 isn't worth buying Halo. :/

    Halo is ok but it's not everything it's hyped to be. don't get me wrong, its an excellently crafted shooter but it could've been much better

    Matter of opinion my friend, matter of opinion. I don't "hate" Halo, there's just so much better FPSs out there, like Half-Life or my total fav, DOOM.

    Agreed. Halo isn't nearly as good as it's made out to be. It's good, maybe around a 7/10 IMO.

    MW2 makes my day much better than Halo. Also, other nice FPS's are Killzone 2, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, and MAG. /spam :p

    Certain parts could have been done better I agree, but it's excellently made and is one of the best, which is awesome considering how many FPS games there are.

    Of course it's opinion. And of course it's hard to beat DOOM. But other than that? There aren't many that are better. Hell, I can't think of any fully fledged FPS games that top Halo other than DOOM.

    Incredibly vast universe with deep stories and tidbits of history all fully developed and masterfully created conjoined with solid gameplay, unique enemies, original maps, amazing story, and crazy custom games and levels. Now tell me exactly how this does not deserve the praise it has gotten.

    I've heard mixed reviews about Flashpoint. Either way, MW2 just got boring for me fairly quickly. All the custom games and everything really make Halo a longer lasting game.

    this is like the ultimate halo fanboy, dont try to argue ur point with a fanboy hell just get upset.

    to the OP wait til u get ur 2nd paycheck and blow them both on a ps3, and whatever games you want. it's a good decision. 360s are awesome too though, and they are priced the same right now.

    That would be presuming I thought Halo was the best ever. I have already said multiple times I don't think that's the case. But it is a masterfully created franchise and it makes no sense as to how there could be anyone that can't appreciate that. I suppose not everybody looks at games as deeply as I do. Only what you see on the surface and the first impressions you get. Hell, all my favorite games gave me terrible first impressions, but I gave them another shot and kept playing and now I love them.

    I don't like Halo.
    I think you should save your money.

    You're definitely one of the minority on that one. There are STILL tons of people playing Halo 3.

    Also, new argument: Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 are not on PS3. Freaking amazing games. (well the second one isn't out yet, but it will be in what, 4 days?)

    Halo is a great franchise. But this is somewhat beside the point.

    To the OP: The PS3 is a GREAT console.

    However, to know which console suits you better ultimately depends on the kind of games you prefer and what you want to do with it. If you are a junkie for online multiplayer and very interested in networking with friends, get a 360. If you like interesting games that go outside the box, an immersive single-player experience, or great games in a multitude of genres without having a singular preference, get a PS3.

    As for me, I would get the PS3 because it has multiple media assets that I like and are assets that will still be popular for a long time to come. I love watching movies so I want the best experience available for my buck. I also like a multitude of game genres and don't care as much for playing online (however, PS3's online service isn't bad at all).

    Wow, I just realized I didn't even contribute other than giving my opinion on Halo. All of the below is my opinion.

    Anyway, yes the PS3 is an outstanding console, and the most diverse in this generation IMO. Nintendo hasn't really been able to deliver since the Wii's first birthday, and Xbox is inferior for many reasons. (Calm down people it's my opinion)

    If you've joined this fourm, chances are that you already have a Wii. So, I'll be mainly comparing to PS3.

    The biggest reason that I think the PS3 is superior is simly exclusive games. Let's be real, no other company has matched Sony in terms of wide-ranging exclusives in this generation. And that's what I think you should be looking at when purchasing a console. Forget multi-platform games, you can get them on any console. You want to think about the games that you can't get anywhere else.

    That's why I chose the PS3>360. There are so many different genres with great exclusives in them. For example:

    Shooters:
    - Killzone 2
    - Resistance Fall of Man
    - Resistance 2
    - SOCOM Confrontation (If you're into tactical stuff)
    - Warhawk
    - MAG (Upcoming)

    Action/Adventure
    - Uncharted Drake's Fortune
    - Uncharted 2 (Godly, GOTY easily)
    - Metal Gear Solid 4 (GOTY last year)
    - InFamous
    - Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction
    - Ratchet and Clank a Crack in Time
    - GOD OF WAR 3 (Upcoming)
    - Heavenly Sword

    Racing
    - Motorstorm
    - Motorstorm Pacific Rift
    - Ridge Racer
    - WipEout HD
    - Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
    - Gran Turismo 5 (Upcoming)

    The platforming genre is dying a bit, but LittleBigPlanet gave it a boost with a game that is unlike anything you will ever play.

    And if you're into sports games, PS3 features the MLB The Show series exclusively. There are other great exclusive games that I didn't even get to as well. There's just so many that I don't feel like listing them all, haha.

    And if you compare this to 360, I'd think you'd find the greater selection.

    360 has games like Halo, Gears, Forza, Left for Dead, etc. But when you really compare the two, I don't really think there's a question.

    Plus, PS3 is cheaper in the long run. With 360 you'll have to pay $50 a year for online play, plus $50+ for a wireless router if you don't have a wired connection. (M$ rips you off because the 360 is not compatible with regular routers)

    The PSN really isn't that far behind Live anyway. Sure, the 360 has some more features but most are extremely unnecessary for video games.

    And you'll have to worry about the alarming rate of the Red Rings of Death hardware failure.
