    Hallo guys, i was wondering if any of you can give me some suggestions between the xbox 360 or PS3.

    I have never tried either of them (wasn't quite a gamer until got hook up with iphone 3rd party games :P)

    I have been told that on the 360 i can talk in the multi player mode, is that correct? Is that same for PS3 too?

    PS3s good. Xbox is better. I was a lifelong PS user so the xbox controller took me a little while to get used to. I think matching up with friends for multiplayer is much of an easier process. Although if you enjoy watching hi def movies, the quality is much better on the PS3 and you have to buy an attachment for the xbox; good thing is due to the format war, you can get around 5 free movies with either the ps3 or the xbox hd dvd attachment.

    Also, most game companies are starting the trend of not doing exclusive games anymore so it might come to the conclusion of what system would you rather have sitting on your entertainment center area.

    I have the xbox for gaming and the ps3 for movies.

    My kids have an xbox 360 and its awesome. I bought them the Rock Band bundle for Christmas and its pretty amazing. The only downside to the Xbox 360 is that it needs to have good airflow or it can overheat. We had to send ours back for warranty repair when it was only a month old. The kids brought it upstairs one day to use on the big screen HDTV in the living room and sat it on the floor to play. Not good and we ended up with the red ring of death. It took 3 weeks to get it fixed and we actually were sent a new system which works great and a free month of Xbox live.

    Haven't had much experience with PS3 but my son who works at a major electronics chain says its not worth the money.

    Same here. PS3 can't compare if your using them for gaming, but the PS3 is a great dvd player. And that's exactly what my PS3 is, a dvd player. xbox has better gaming graphics, better online functionality, better games, and for me the controller is so much easier to use the dual joysticks. The downside for xbox, i'm on my third system. They don't last long. They extended the warrenty but you still don't have an xbox when it's getting repaired.

    360 has way better games dude. i have the will/ps3/360 all since launch days and the 360 has gotten the most attention. i have only gone through one ring of death since having it day 1. i ended up switching to the elite model though because it matches set up

    It does everything, best online gaming network, best games, and the coolest features ever, use Winamp Remote like i do, download films and stream them to ur telly, easy as pie - the console is fit for the kings

    just off for some Halo3 / Orange Box.

    I just bought the parts for my first pc build. Got a free E6750 woo. The only reason i ever use my 360 is for games but i'm going to switch to pc gaming. I wish i would have bought the PS3 for games and Blu-Ray. The 360 needs the overpriced hd-dvd drive "accessory" to play hd-dvd movies. Just had 2 red rings this week. They were false alarms but i'm not sure how long it will hold out.

    I admit there has been technical problems with the 360, but everyone in UK not sure about anywhere else has got an extended 3 year warrenty, totalling a 7 year warrenty.

    Been playing Assassin's Creed and Rock Band on my PS3 for a bit now... AWESOME. The graphics are incredible, and the fact that it plays BluRay is great as well.

    I have both!

    I like them both and I think they both have pros and cons. What I can tell you is this. If you want something that is very user friendly then go with the XBOX 360 because is so logical and its very easy to use, and that is only because they make u buy only the microsoft products I just converted few of my friends to get the PS3 and they all called me with more than 50 questions on how to do things on it, because they were so used with the easy way on the XBOX 360.

    I like the way XBOX 360 is more organized and very easy to use, and PS3 is going to be like that, but when u play games like a maniac who has time for that?!

    Go with the XBOX 360 for your first console, my opinion!

    In my opinion:

    Microsoft got the software right, and the hardware wrong.
    Sony got the hardware right, and the software wrong.

    Guess you have to choose which one is more important to you.


    Sidenote: you have to pay to use the 360 online (though it is better), while the ps3 is free to use online (and thus, not so great)...
