    I can't believe people are still saying PS3 doesn't have games, that changed a good while ago.

    Don't really see the point of blu-ray to be honest, especially not as an arguing point. It's extra useless things I have no need for...

    If PS3 sold with "Standard" HD instead of blu-ray, and was cheaper because of it I'd possibly consider maybe contemplate buying it but seriously...
    <Care> about blu-ray.

    Meh, I only "get" movies or watch them in the theaters, so I could really care less what format is better. Like the other two posts, theres not really a difference in the consoles unless you're a graphics whore. Another thing, when it comes to overheating, is it the actual console or the power supply? Because my 360 never gets too hot, it's just the power supply, but thats because one part of it sucks in heat. Reason why my 1st 360 failed was because I kept it on a carpet(stupid me).

    Note the Arcade edition does not come with a hard drive and the Elite has a 120g hardrive compared to the standard 20g.
    4 USB, 2 in front, 2 in back + Ethernet input.
    Wireless controllers work better with the rechargeable packs than AAs. They are made specifically for the controller and plug in like the battery packs.

    Nothing to add here.

    They have since fixed the overheating problem, I sent mine in recently to be fixed and was sent back in 5 days flat. I had mine for over a year before it overheated once. That was due to it having poor air flow thanks to me.
    Again the rechargeable packs for the controllers are cheaper in the long run, 20 bucks for a quick charger and 2 packs that plug in to the controller.
    I used AAs for 2 weeks before buying the quick charger kit.
    The live headset it comes with is crap, should buy a new one by a company like Madcats, also original headset has a warranty through MS...
    "Some idiots try to fix the 360 with towells, which work for a week then your ------ed. "
    ???

    I never buy a game for 60 dollars, you can buy used games from a place like Gamestop and it is guaranteed for 1 year to work and you have 7 days to return if it doesn't work OR you don't like it.
    Also prices of games increase for everything(xbox, playstation and pc) every 2 years or so because of advancement of technology.

    No one is saying anything, but large amounts of "SE" consoles are coming back to the store dead, right out of the box. Others work for a while and then die. People paid 200 extra dollars for their chrome edition PS3 and it dies as soon as they get it out of the box? I know some very pissed people atm.
    200 extra dollars just for chromed plastic trim? <_<

    You think 360 games are too expensive, say hello to blueray.

    You can put linux on the 360...hell you can put windows as well.
    360 has achievements and I dont even care for this particular item?
    I dont feel like playing a RPG with the console...
    Ill admit the internet options are nice.

    I have not personally like any game on the PS3 I have played, except for GRAW2 and wait...thats on my 360 too.

    Me? I may be bias, but I wasnt trying to say the 360 was better. Both have their advantages.

    Yes 360's version was announced before PlayTV but if we'll actually see anything from both companies is still up in the clouds, and it's Europe only.

    Exactly, it's separate. Shouldn't matter if you just want a gaming console. If someone wants both, they should research both consoles but BD shouldn't be a deciding factor if you're never going to use it.

    360 does as well but just as people are saying PS3 has no games, people keep saying the 360 just has shooters.

    That's what I use!

    Now I'm not biased towards any console but let's just say I haven't really used my PS3 since December last year. I'm pulling for the PS3 but 360 is still going strong and 2008 is not going to slow it down.

    Why didnt PS change their controllers since the times of PSOne because the controllers design is one of the best designs there is - The 360 controller how ergonomically design it is .. its still a big controller laid in your hands even though i have to agree the 360 controller is a vast improvement compared to the first one - The Wii controller is innovative for what its supposed to do

    Lets take a trip down memory lane ... have a look at these pictures ..

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    it looks like the dreamcast and classic xbox controller mated ... very similar i say

    bluray will matter soon enough when consumers buy HDTV in the near future - major film companies are going towards bluray .. HD-DVD is decreasing and if you watch the news then you would realise toshiba have lost the war

    So unlucky to all HD-DVD owners - XBOX live is the best online feature hands down ..

    PS3 have games coming out .. they are taking time - I rather WAIT for QUALITY than a FAST developed games that are complete crap - 360 is majorly for shooters and i hate shooters because i find it boring (most people like shooters but i dont) .. PS3 on the other hand has a mix of games since the times of PS1

    As i said years ago .. We have to wait and see what happens - XBOX has more games because a year early when released is the factor for more games

    I am going to buy a PS3 in the summer .. 360 doesnt impress me much but i play both consoles everyday at my mates - G4ylo .. hate it - Only games that are decent are Gears and assassins creed - 2 of the baddest games on 360

    DS. Be quiet.

    PS3 have games coming out? PS3 has TWO exclusive games coming out that I could give a damn about. What the PS3 owners seem to be ignoring is that while your getting all these new games like GTA, 360 is getting them too.

    lol did i jus pwn you? telling me to be quiet lol these threads are always bound to start a console war ...

    Only 2? nah ... http://www.games2c.com/ps3/games/?l=&f...=ps3&page=1 - go here
    As i said BEFORE (2006 time) exclusives dont matter - I dont care about exclusives & i can switch that comment

    "360 owners are ignoring the fact that while the new games like GTA & DMC4 are coming out on 360, PS3 is getting them too" and lets not forget the PC shall we - Games like GTA & assassins creed will be on PC & will kill both consoles - Ive always played GTA on PC mostly and sometimes PS where i cant look at the screen for too long and want to relax & go trigger happy :P

    I mean PS2 for me got a while left & still unfinished :P

    Few things.
    Namely, the list of PS3 games you just linked is irrelevant to what I said, I said EXCLUSIVE for one, and games I actually care about.

    We're not ignoring the fact your getting these games, we still have more, and more exclusives and better live.

    + There is NO chance that GTA will do better on PC...

    *cares about the games you want* i was talking in general .. didnt see me saying i'm gona buy MGS4/GT/tekken/AC etc - That link was there about the games that are going to be released i wasnt talking about exclusives that are going to come out

    you must be joking .. why wont GTA do better on PC? mad case there lol - Console spec CANNOT match PC spec to this date and still doesnt and NEVER will because PC parts 'Evolve' quickly whereas you cant really DIY a console , parts go out of date within a year in production (xlink would agree)

    "wow i got a exclusive that ps3 aint got" *cares* theres always games better coming out on all consoles - we? *smells a 360 fan* well obviously 360 will have more since its been out a year earlier duh

    Relating to topic .. each ones got their pros and cons My opinion on this - Few games on 360 are awesome but most are wack same goes for the PS3 .. exclusives hardly matter and its bs - 360's live is the best online feature (as i said before) .. PS3's home and online capabilities wont be as good - HD-DVD is going to be obsolete whereas bluray is going to be the future

    PC > All .. fact.

    I always call my friends stupid for getting an Xbox 360 when I tell them to get PS3. I realize that some people favor one system over another. If you had an Xbox, you would probably get an Xbox 360, the same goes for Playstation 2 and 3. I just think that Microsoft does screw up on things. Almost everyone I know who has an Xbox has had theirs break. My cousins just broke on Monday. Playstation 3 has flaws and things that some people might not like. It just depends on your opinion for most part.

    Eh.
    I've got one of the release 360's and I'm yet to have any problem.

    Either way, DS. Just because the PC can "Evolve" doesn't mean GTA will do better on PC...because it won't. The game is going to be made for a certain spec, in 5 years time with "Super duper" computers the game is hardly going to sell more because everybody's PC has evolved.
