    Which should i buy PS3 or Xbox 360.

    Xbox 360:
    - massive game seletion
    - great online play

    PS3:
    - New game called M.A.G. a.k.a. massive action game click here
    - blue ray

    I just touched on the main and basic reasons.

    I was going to buy a 360 with ease but then i was watching E3 today and at the end of the Sony confrence i saw the greatest game M.A.G. i fell in love. 256 online play! 8 man squad! It's AWESOME!!!!!!!

    What do you think?

    One game has influenced your decision? Surely e3 proved you shouldn't buy a ps3. Like you said the xbox has a better game selection. And the console is alot cheaper, leaving you more cash to buy a few games.

    If i was spending on my own money again i'd run into a shop and say "premium xbox 360 please", set it up at home and play for a few days. I don't think i'll ever be getting the ps3 now, and it's not a thing about price its about it's a complete waste of money. Sure mag looks awesome but if you wanted a huge game you'd just get a decent comp with some WOW subscription.

    For me anyway, mag doesn't constitute buying a ps3.

    Without a doubt, XBOX 360!!!!! All The Way!!

    Of course this opinion is biased by me ONLY owning a 360 and have never played a PS3, but come on...

    XBOX Live is just amazing... you can pop in one of the oldest games for the console and you qill be AMAZED top find that people STILL PLAY IT! That is what is so good about it...

    It's a truly remarkable community, and as far as i know the 360 has more online players by alot than the ps3.

    MAJOR ADVICE!:Buy the one where yu have more friends online!! ITS SO WORTH IT

    i bought my ps3 since it was the better package from the xbox but i didnt think online would be a problem, a week into it and i regret buying a ps3 only because i have no friends who have it! =/

    clearly get ps3 its so much better
    first, free online. on xbox you gotta pay $50 a year just to play online

    second, blu-ray discs look amazing on the ps3

    third, game selection is no difference. the only games ive seen on xbox that arent on ps3 are halo and gears of war. everything else is.

    but whoever said it up above, go for the system that more of your friends have. thats the only thing i regret about gettin ps3. but everythin else is better.

    Get a 360. It has pretty good exclusives, as well as the superior version of most multiplatform games.


    I've given up on the PS3. The novelty of Blu Ray wears off, once you get used to HDTV/HD Movies. The PS3's online features, and extra online capabilities are nothing like the 360's. The 360 has better downloadable content, a better selection of movies and TV shows, and better original games.

    The PS3 has pretty lame exclusives. Resistance and Resistance 2 are generic Sci Fi FPS's. Every single demo of Resistance 2 shows that one Boss Level with the giant monster. Killzone 2 looks worse and worse every time they show it. The 360's getting titles like Final Fantasy, and soon Tekken.
