    Default ps3 vs xbox 360?

    might buy one might wait for price to drop

    pros for xbox 360:
    larger database of games
    can't think of much else
    Cons:
    live costs money.....
    hard drives aren't that generous for cost

    pros for ps3:
    graphics are amazing so i hear
    blu-ray dvd
    free online
    lots of nice exclusives
    can't think of anything else
    cons:
    cost is higher compared to xbox 360

    so which should i buy if im getting one

    also does xbox 360 or ps3 games mandate you need updates to play them cause it gets really annoying to update everytime i wanna play (im too lazy)

    you can play in game music with the Xbox360 and as far as i know you cant do this with ps3, also the xbox360 as alot better games IMO. so if it was up to me i would get the Xbox360

    Xbox360
    Pros :
    In game music of your choice
    you can Customize it
    Better games and better co-op
    Alot cheaper

    Cons:
    the over heating problem
    Updating alot,but you have the install the games on the ps3 witch is a hassle

    There is no difference in graphics. Regarding the nice exclusive point. TrueElement's post says it all.

    That's purely opinion though. Remember, this isn't a year or two ago when PS3 had no exclusives, we have quite a selection now.
    I personally think Gears of War and Halo suck, (have played both and that's my opinion) and I love my Ratchet & Clank and Demon's Souls, just to name a couple.

    I'd love to play Forza 3 though... oh well, Gran Turismo 5 eventually.

    Best way to choose between the two is look up game lists for both systems, pick the one that has more games of your style and go with that. Both are solid systems.

    I have both, well I have the 360 and my brother has the PS3, but it's pretty much the same, since we live in the same house.

    Anyway, from my research I have concluded this about both:
    360:
    Pro:
    1. lots of games
    2. more players
    3. more developer update supports
    4. great amount of shooters
    5. fair amount of other genres
    6. pretty good graphics
    7. backward compatibility, so you get to play some of the greatest Xbox original games
    8. comfortable controller when first picked up

    Con:
    1. XBL cost money
    2. lots of kids screaming on Halo
    3. updates cost money
    4. controller is comfortable, but analog sticks aren't
    5. overheating
    6. short warranty
    7. 120GB HDD cost over $100
    8. only some games are backward compatible
    9. no blu-ray
    10. graphics aren't as great as PS3


    PS3:
    Pro:
    1. blu-ray
    2. less chance of YLOD
    3. longer warranty
    4. better graphics
    5. controller is familiar if you played the PS2
    6. still have a great amount of shooters
    7. free online play
    8. updates cost a few bucks less
    9. full PS1 backward compatibility

    Con:
    1. updates still cost money
    2. less players to play online
    3. only PS1 backward compatible, unless you buy the original 80GB, 60GB, or 20GB(easily cost over $250)
    4. lack developer care
    5. lack game creativity, due to small PS3 population


    Note: this is just off the top of my head.
    I Don't need to get a life, im a gamer. I have LOTS of lives

    like im not all that interested in the ps3 games but i wanna play final fantasy versus XIII when it comes out...and the xbox thing seems really cool but i've always been a ps fanboy (ps1, ps2, psp) and i really don't wanna pay for multiplayer >>... ill probably end up waiting till more developments come out but right now im leaning toward the 360 side
    thanks guys

    btw is it true that ps3 has 8 cores 7 which function for games and all clocked at 3.2 ghz?
