    I have an opportunity to trade my possibly banned in the near future Xbox 360 (with.....quite a few games) for a PS3 (with a couple of games).

    Id like a PS3 for the new Socom (loved Socom 2) and Little Big Planet mainly. The two things that are holding me back are: is it worth it because of the amount of games Im giving him (even though he wont be able to play online obviously) and the fact I'd have to trade the hard drive as well with my gamertag, gamerscore etc on it.

    No flaming/Xbox 360 vs PS3 arguments =]

    He knows that it might well be unplayable online soon, he doesnt play online so it doesnt matter to him much.

    To be honest, I don't care much for the PS3. It's overhyped, and people pay way too much for it. Also, the fanboys really do £$%@ me off.

    HOWEVER the 360 is all about the online play, and I think that they're awful without it. If you have a chance to swap a (possibly) offline only 360 for a fully functioning PS3, I'd do it.

    Yeah its a good point, swapping an xbox 360 that wont be able to play online for a PS3 thats fine. If I could keep my 360 hard drive so I have the option to use it if I ever buy another 360 in the future, Id be a bit happier. I might be able to put my main profile on my memory card?

    buy a new hdd and give him that instead and then keep your old one.

    or is there any way to back up all the data onto your pc yet?
