Ell has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Xbox or Playstation?

I wasn't sure where to put this thread.. but i'm sure it will get moved if it's in the wrong place..

There is a distinct lack of this common discussion on this site..

Xbox 360 or Playstation 3?

They both have their plusses or minuses.. i have neither..

Just interested on what everyone has to say on the respective consoles.

Happy posting (:

I have both, but I personally prefer the Xbox 360 to the PS3. Online experience is simply a lot more involving on the Xbox than the PS3.

Playstation. Besides Halo which I find very overrated, 360 doesn't have as many good games as PS3 to me.

the only game that I've liked from this gen so far is Left 4 Dead 1 & 2, so Xbox.

Playstaion, none of the exclusives on the Xbox appeal to me save a few JRPG's, plus I can get most Xbox games on a PS3 anyways

Kyusen is an unknown quantity at this point

I don't have a PS3, but my cousin does, and playing God of War Collection is awesome. So I'd rather have the PS3 than my 360.

Zero recently got rid of his Xbox 360 after first getting a RROD, and more recently, it stopped displaying the color red. It's worth noting that this was also a Jasper model, which makes it even more disappointing. Owning a 360 was a bad feeling the entire time for one such as Zero, who is a collector of video games; every purchase for the console felt like a worthless investment. Perhaps it isn't so bad for the "play and traders", but if you buy games with the intension of keeping them, what's the point? Everyone knows their 360 is going to die sooner or later, and when Microsoft releases their next console (Zero honestly hopes they don't), they will probably stop supporting the 360 just as quickly as they did the original Xbox. And as high as the failure rate is, it will be extremely hard to find a working 360 later on down the road. The only hope for your game collection will be based on the next Xbox's backwards compatibility. Even then, though, you have to wonder what the quality of their next system will be like (it is Microsoft after all)...or if it will even support physical media, which is highly possible considering their push for digital distribution and general distaste towards Blu-Ray.

Of course, Zero already knew all of this before he got a 360. And had it not been a gift, Zero would've never owned one. The only real appeal were the so-called exclusive JRPG's which, by the way, are no longer exclusive for the most part. Don't misunderstand, though, the Xbox 360 does have a nice little selection of other exclusive games. Although not much for Zero's tastes...Halo, Mass Effect, Gears of War, etc. are all pretty good games. But they don't compare to the likes of Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 4, Demon's Souls, InFamous, and LittleBigPlanet...among others. One could argue that it's a matter of taste or personal preference, but having played most of each console's exclusives, it seems very clear that the PlayStation 3 has the upper hand in that category. Some might also say that more games look better on Xbox 360 than PS3, and technically this is true when you're doing side-by-side screen shot comparisons of third-party games, but still, Zero has yet to see anything on the 360 that looks better than MGS4 and Uncharted.

As far as online goes, however, Zero would still have to say that XBL is a better service than PSN...for now. Because the truth is, PSN has been playing some fierce catch-up. Overall, it is now very comparable to Xbox Live and that's without even mentioning the fact that it's free. Add that in and they pretty much even out.

And we all know that the PS3's failure rate is basically non-existent when compared to that of the 360. Going to turn on your console without that dreaded feeling of whether you'll be able to play or not is priceless. Coincidentally, Zero has been wondering lately just how much of the Xbox 360's sales numbers are actually made of up 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th time buyers. It sounds a little insane at first thought, but they say that the majority of 360 owners are on their 2nd or 3rd console. This is very true, too, because if you're on gaming communities enough, you constantly see someone mentioning how they just got another 360, or how they just bought a Jasper. What's really sad, though, is how they seem happy about it. People truly have no value for their money these days; it really is pathetic.

In Zero's opinion, it should be a no-brainer to choose a PS3 over a 360. But hey, if you can afford to own both or all three consoles - all the merrier. If you're a collector like Zero, though, investing money in Xbox 360 consoles, game, and accessories is pointless.

Hmm, well my brother has an Xbox and its fun to play, but i have used my mates PS3 and i have to say that the layout is much easier to use.
I probably dont play on the Xbox enough, because i find it very hard to get around the different controller and the letters on the controller.
I would stay Xbox would be a good start, a PS3 doesn't have as many memorable francises imo, but that doesn't really matter, either would probably work, but Ps3 is more expensive.

More expensive? In a sense, yes, if you're going to buy the bare-bones Arcade unit. But what should be most important is the value of your money. With a PS3 you get more for your dollar since you get the same features as an Elite 360 plus a very good Blu-ray player, a much, much higher quality and longer lasting console, a comparable, free online service, and an exclusive line up which is at least equal to (arguably better) than Xbox's.
