    On Black Friday, my parents said I could get either an Xbox 360 or a PS3.

    I really don't know which to get because I really don't know which is better. I was leaning towards a 360 because most of my friends have one so I could play them on Live. But, one things that's pushing me back, is that I heard they break very easily. That's one thing that scares me. The reasons I want to get a PS3, is because i've always been a PS fanboy, and I really want Resistance 2. The problem is, it's $100 more, and my parents might not let me. I also heard that online play is crappy for the PS3.

    So what do you guys think I should get? Give reasons why since I don't know much about the systems except for what I stated above.

    Thanks guys!

    If you got a PS3 you could shoot the sh*t out of me and I know you would like that! Plus you get Blu_Ray

    I would go with the 360.
    Especially since all your friends have 360's.
    And they have a great warranty , so if something goes wrong , you can just send it in.

    However , I've read somewhere that the newer XBOX's are fixed from RROD , not sure if it's true though.

    Yeah, that's what my friend said. He said if that happens, you send it in, you get it back in around 2 weeks, and they give you 1 month free Xbox Live

    I would go with the 360. It has loads more games than the 360. Plus since Microsoft put the new chips into the 360 there have been almost no RROD issues with the new Xbox 360's. Plus if it ever does break you have a 3 year warranty free. They fix it and ship it free. Also the 360 is cheaper with the cheapest of the three at $199. Im sure your going to want to get on xbl so you have to get the $300 one or the $400 one if you need 129gigs of space. Your lucky your buying yours now. I bought mine when it first came out and it was $400 for a 20gig premium. You'll like the new dashboard also.

    I would have to say the 360 pro. The age of console exclusive games is coming to the end and in my opinion, there are better and more console exclusives for the xbox than there are on the ps3 (even though LPB and MGS4 look epic). Plus all your friends have an xbox 360 so there you go!

    Oooh this is a tough one, why? because I own both of their Pro's and Con's
    Well basically
    XBOX 360
    • Fun games lots of good console exclusives
    • New dashboard and Microsoft avatars
    • XBOX live( clearly beats the crud outta PS3's online)
    • Friends own one
    • bit cheaper
    PS3
    • Very nice build Quality
    • Blu-Ray
    • Free online play, but not as nice as Live
    • Good gmaes
    • Lots of mature players, compared to 360
    • Controller is lighter in weight-Just thought id point that out, it virtually feels weightless)

    Well thats just some of the Pro's for each, lol ill leave you to decide, but id probably go for a 360( becase Left 4 Dead PWNS!)
