    So my uncle is going to buy me one of them

    i already decided not to get a Wii b/c im not interested in that moving around stuff, i'm a fat ass i don't need the exercise

    but if i get the ps3 im going to have to pay 100 -200$ b/c the price difference between the 360 and ps3
    but if i get the 360 im going to end up paying for Live myself and i really don't want to do

    I really want COD4 and thats on both of them
    i really want halo which is exclusive for 360
    but then i can wait for killzone 2

    i only care about the multiplayer games
    i dont care about adventure games, mmorpgs

    which one should i get?

    ps for some reason i don't like hack and slash games god of war and dynasty warriors
    and i really don't like MGS
    i guess i'm really weird

    Live is a yearly fee, and you can get buy cards in case you have no credit card.

    Go for the 360, better selection of games, crisper graphics and texture display and its just an overall better deal.

    I'm a big Sony fan, always been, but I can't say the PS3 is great because that would just be plain lying.

    one of the two parts of that is false..

    that said.. look into the future 6 months... which would leave you happier. We can't answer for you.

    Some great games are planned for both consoles.. Depends which type of game appeals to you more.. Saying that, half are probably going to be multi-platform anyway..

    I personally say get the ps3

    1. Online is free you dont have to pay anything
    2. Later on in the months/years sony is going to have one hell of a great line-up for games
    3. If your a graphic type person when it comes to games i have to say ps3 because of the blue-ray software in it
    4. Its been said (over here in ohio and i red in a gaming artical) that the 360 tends to break down on players in 4-5 months of purchase

    so i say go with ps3, remember this is my opinion but it is your choice to decide whats best for you

    Man that is one stupid thing to say.

    First of all, if you're a fatass, you DO need the exercise. Don't act like it's not a terrible thing to be out of shape.

    Second of all, you don't move around with the Wii. I can play just about every Wii game while lying down in my bed. (Except maybe Mario/Sonic @ Olympics)

    Get a Wii, it has the best games hands-down, and it's cheap.

    Or get a 360. Next best games, best online, great system.

    Avoid the PS3. Still not worth it. Maybe it will be like the PSP and be totally awesome in a couple years.

    i say playstation3 because:
    1) the line up of games will be better soon
    2) free online
    3) it doubles as a blueray player which is cheaper then going and buying a separate blueray player for bout the same price

    Get PS3. Then get GTA4 and MGS4. Then don't get Killzone 2. First one was garbage and the second will be high definition garbage.

    are you kidding?

    Wii has the worst graphics of all the next-gen consoles, 90% of the games are like for people under 13, and it's just plain boring.

    Myself bought a Xbox 360 a couple of months ago, I still haven't got RROD.. If I were you, I'd buy X360 because of all the reasons stated.. It's cheaper, equally good graphics at least.

    graphics don't necessarily make a game. look at WoW. the graphics are... mediocre


    and yet...


    also in most games the 360 has been shown to have superior graphics and/or frame rate along with lwoer loading times. the only exception I know of to that would be oblivion, but ehh that game is better PC side anyway

    And yet more people above the age of 18 have a Wii over the other systems. And yet the Wii is kicking the other systems' asses in sales. Looks like graphics don't mean ----.

    Well, Halo 3 is more fun on Xbox live, campaign imo is still fun, but online is always fun and exciting, especially with RL friends.

    Personally I say 360, great games all around, Online is great, and well organized and you know that anything good almost always has a price. 360 is also cheaper. About the breaking in 4 or five months, I've had mine since November 2007 and Its now basically June 08 and mine has not had one problem. I've heard of my friends ones breaking, but they've had them since they came out, and those 360s (the first ones to come out) are known by all to have glitches and things like that. Luckily that has been fixed, so now 360s run fine IMO.

    PS3 has a few good games, but I have no doubt that it will have great games in the future, but I have never been a fan of Playstation games, so I prefer 360. But I don't know what you like more, so I can't tell that since I don't like the games that Sony puts out for their console, mean that the entire system is crap and that no one should get it. I think that the Blu-Ray player is a little overrated, I see people like OMFG WTF! Blu-Ray! But yet, it's just a dvd player with High Definition. But seriously when is the last time you've ever cared to count the freckles on your favorite actors face. Normal DVDs are still good, they can be played by the 360 also.

    But in the end, buy what you want, you've seen the ups and downs of both consoles, one console can't have it all. Maybe do some research on what games are coming out for each console, and see which one has more of the games that you like.
