    xbox online.....you pay membership, and you buy wireless router, which would be an extra £40 a year for membership n £60 for the router and on the ps3 internet is free and it comes with a router so the prices equal out and the ps3 offers so much more!!!

    eeerrrrm routers are connected to computers to connect wireless stuff to the internet. . . I have one.

    Is the guy saying the 360 doesn't have wirelessness?

    Sorry.
    I just read what I wanted to.:lol:

    With the 360 to be wireless, you have to buy a $100 wireless adapter.
    With a PS3, you don't. For certain models, though. I believe the 20gb doesn't support that.

    neither come with a wireless router. the x-box needs a wireless adaptor which is what i assume you are talking about. the ps3 doesn't need one, as it is built in.
    also ps3 has BR DVD player built in, 360 needs a $100 USD adaptor for HDDVD.
    both things only count though if you care about that stuff. If you have no intentions of playing online or having Hi Def capabilities then 360 is cheaper.

    You get a free silver membership though, you only pay for gold for all that extra stuff

    I got an Xbox and PS3 and I dont care about wireless. Besides you can hook up your laptop to your Xbox and get wireless connection that way.

    well yes isnt 360 arcade $270 and the 40gb ps3 is $400. but for the arcade u have to buy a hard drive, and then if you want online thats another $100 then the $50 a yr. so really the 360 is more then the ps3 if you choose online but if you dont then its usually only $50 behind ps3. Nd if PS3 decides to lower the price to $300 or even $350 it would be less then most people spend on their 360's am i right?

    Yeah price between those two consoles really isn't an issue anymore, the PS3 usually works out cheaper now and the good titles as well as the ones that are out already will come. PS3 > 360 :D.

    You dont have to pay $100 extra for online. Thats only if you want wireless. Also I wouldnt even count 40gig version because you cant even play PS2/PS games on it.

    Yes, but as you throw out on using Wireless for Live, you can also counter that with them not wanting to play older titles.

    You don't have to pay extra for Backwards Compatibility, that's only if you want to play the Playstation's Back Catalog.

    agreed
    it really depends on what you're looking for in a console and which version of each you're looking for. There is no "best" console, there is just a better fit for each person.

    It depends on what games you like. I'm so over the PS3 360 debate. People act like once one of them get a better advantage the other will just melt.

    but im sure most people buying a ps3 arent buying it to play ps2 games. or even as a backup if their ps2 breaks cuz i've had my ps2 for like 4-5 yrs now and its still working like a charm.
    nd wait 360 u dont have to buy that adaptor for online?
