    Well I would get a PS3 for more single player games, and xbox 360 for more multiplayer games.

    Personally I would get the PS3, as you can get some of the online games from 360, and play them online for free. Plus Metal Gear Solid 4 will be releasing on PS3, and it's a must have.

    its basically a fact the 360 has better games. ask anyone in the industry (that wouldnt be bias) and they will say 360 is the console to own when it comes to games. (so far)

    Well Since you aren't big on graphics try PS3, not only does it let you play PS3 games but PS2 games as well. If you are only looking for a big game selection then Playstation is the way to go.

    Well I have both, and I would normally say xbox 360, but IMO the 360 has a letdown that I've never experienced with playstation. IT KEEPS BREAKING!!! I have a had a playstation 2 for over 6 and a half years now, and it hasn't broke, I still play tekken 5 on it. On the other hand, my 360 lasted 3 months and got the stupid "RROD" which made the 360 lose it's appeal, there are loads of people complaining about this on xboxlive.com, I see it on the forums everyday.

    If it wasn't for that, I probably would have said xbox 360, although PS3 has free online as well.

    Not in the UK anymore - 40GB version had it taken out. I think I heard something a while back about other versions having it taken out too.

    I would go for the 360, since there's more exclusives (due to the time it's been out). Especially with the zombie action (Dead Rising, soon to be Left 4 Dead, etc...).

    I had this decision a couple of months back. I got the 360, mostly for the exclusive games that 360 had over PS3. Final Fantasy has been going down hill lately, and I'm not into Metal Gear. 360 seemed like a logical choice.

    If you're looking at exclusive games for a decision, I suggest researching which ones you like the look of most.

    www.gametrailers.com is a brilliant site for video reviews, just don't bother with their forums though.

    Yes.

    Though I maintain my stance on Halo, I have given in to numerous games (like Dead Rising, Devil May Cry 4, Assassins Creed, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Lost Odessy and Perfect Dark Zero). I haven't had a decent play time on them because my other half (milliways) got Oblivion and had been playing it since I got the 360.

    Yeah, student loan quickly running out. Lucky I get more next month!

    It would depend on what type of games you're interested in I'd say.

    There's other factors too, such as your price range, etc.

    You pay only £2.50 a month for xbox live if you get the 12 month deal, its around £3.00-£3.50 for the other deals.. and thats all you have to ever pay.

    IMO id say ps3 because this is gonna be the year when they start getting "Good" games. but then again its all a matter of what games appeal to you more. Just do some research and make a decision.

    one thing that sways it for me, is the fact that sony can't design a controller to save there life. from the original OS controller to the latest ps3 one, i've had cramp and RSI problems in my hands if i played for to long. where as with the xbox 360, the controller is a little chunkier which makes it easier to hold, and the right analog stick is lower than the left one and makes playing games such as FPS a lot easier.
