xbox would never go back to a ps for some weird reason

Isnt the Elite 360 much better than the normal 360? think they have solved the problems on them?

depends, game wise they will always be on the same level, 360 has some games out already that the ps3 will never get to see, but the ps3 will have games out the the 360 will never get so wings and roundabouts. the ps3 has blu-ray built in, which is a plus, but the 360 has much better online.

TBH I doubt it would break. Yes there was a problem with the early ones but thats sorted now. PS3 had over heating problems at the start aswell, just not documented to the same extent!!

360 really is the better console at the moment!

360 has more games, better online and imo a more comfortable controller.
ps3 has bluray, and erm... well it is apparantly less likely to break on u.
i have a 360 and will buy a ps3 at some pointt his year

oh rite I didnt know they had been sorted,

I miust admit its probably going to be an Xbox

one question though, how do they go online? they wireless? we have a wireless network in the house anyway, and is it 40 per console a year for Live?

360 you'll have to spend 100 quid to get online wirelessly, ps3 you take out of the box and plug in.

You can either connect right to the router with the supplied ethernet cable or you can use a wireless ethernet bridge (20) or a microsoft xbox wireless dongle (30-40)


Live subscription is 40 for 12 months. Bargin really considering the service

edit: You get 1 months free subscription in the box

i have an xbox and my mate has a ps3.

most games come out for both these days and i often use the ps3 when im round his.

tbh i would just walk into a shop and grab whats nearest, there nothing in it, 360 does have better online though

You'll also most likely have to disc swap with new 360 games, how last century is that.

yes the ps3 does have a few nice touches that make the 360 seem slightly dated IMO

I have both consoles and i allways play my PS3 over the the 360. Xbox live is fantastic for things that you dont get for the ps3 like in game messages and gamerscores. The ps3 feels a lot better and i prefer the controllers and looks of the ps3.

Games allready out on the 360 are brill but some good titles will be on the ps3 very soon like metal gear 4 and GT5.
