Prices won't come down because of January sales. Prices will come down when sales dry up! The 360 keeps coming coming down in price so maybe the PS3 will follow suit soon.

Both pretty much the same, it all depends what you've had in the past or if you're new to both which games appeal to you.

- Had 1&2 so was used to it
- Free to play online (no subscription charge like xbox)

Unless you want to play online and have to pay £xx amount a month, soon adds up.

On the basis of recurring costs I went for the PS3, it's a decent package out of the box too even if it is more expensive

A spec'd 360 with a couple of years Live membership will soon be a similar price. Having the blu ray drive is nice too, the prices of films has come down loads!

I've heard of loads of red light stories, that also put me off getting one.

Yeah, standard is 20gb, Elite is 120gb. Quite useful if you download lots of stuff

And it is widely known yeah, but you are covered by Microsoft Warranty if it happens, some just find that annoying. I've not had any problems with my Elite *touch wood* but I much prefer it over my PS3...

I went for a PS3. A lot more expensive than the UPSbox but it has more advantages over it. Blu ray for one is good, as matt said, as blu rays have come down a lot and they aren't that much more than a dvd.

UPSbox does have a wider choice of games atm but hopefully PS3 will catch up soon.

xbox 360 all the way lol
you get a free month of trial on xbox gold
and its £11 for 13 months or something like that on ebay
also has huge range of games
also if you go on xbox live and buy some microsoft points can download pretty much any old xbox game you want
the xbox elite has a bigger hard drive, different colour and is a hd dvd player aswell where as the standard xbox hasnt got hd built in
