    So now I own a PS3. I have yet to hook it up although. I'm pretty excited. I got resistance and an NHL game. I never experienced on-line gaming and I'm pretty excited. I bought a bluetooth headset as well. I'm really hoping to have some fun with this.

    good for you man, Resistance is an awesome game and the online is very satisfying. Here are some good game recommendations:

    Motorstorm(racing)
    The Darkness(very graphic shooter)
    Ninja Gaiden Sigma(3rd person action adventure)

    They aren't really that expensive. You have a 360 right? The PS3 is cheaper in the end, MS is just better at marketing things so they sell everything separate to make it seem cheaper where the PS3 comes with most of the things.

    • 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.

    Edit: I added in the Wifi.
    Edit again: I changed the price of the PS3 since there is a price drop.

    thats not the point, sure its great value, but with the 360 hes still able to choose what he wants to buy. just cause its a greater value dosent mean people want it.

    To each their own. On the plus side the 360 extended the warranty, I think Sony and Nintendo have followed. When you rewind back to last gen you got screwed over with system warranties. This becomes more and more of a factor as game consoles get more powerful.

    a multiplatform title does not = 360 port champ. It means that it was made for all systems.

    The PS3 has a good selection of good games considering the number they have out. Including the fact that it upscales ps1 and ps2 games gives it a pretty big assortment of titles to play, considering ps2 games are still being released.
    No the PS3 has a good selection of games, it could be better, so could the wii's.

    Equivalent UK price £300 ($2=£1)

    Actual UK price £460 (60gb version)

    Not a dig at the PS3, but if you look at the price difference between the US and UK you can see why sometimes UK gamers think it is expensive. Even the Wii is relatively cheaper in the US.

    No I haven't. I don't even have any gaming friends either. They see games as something that's kind of a waste. That's why I'm eager to try the on-line gaming.

    I don't understand how it works though. I did get a bluetooth headset. It's charging right now, so I can't use it. While gaming can you only talk to one person at a time? Or is it everyone you are playing with? How does it all work?

    Ps3 actually sold really well here in the Uk and Europe, Americans seemed to be a litte tighter with their money, they are the ones complaining the most, now im not having a go at any Americans or anything but they complain about it being too expensive.......we pay.....roughly $800 for a Ps3 when use won't stop complaining about it being $599, recently $499 now, its kind of annoys me too say the least, also for games over here it ranges from £29.99 -£49.99 we are paying between $60-$100 for our games. Use have the best deals, we are actually getting ripped off compared too use but use complain more, just a joke.
