    right heres the thing, i spend most of my time down my gf's, her bro got a 360 but getting a ps3 for xmas. so im thinking, either 360 or ps3... or fog lights, HID's possibly and summin else.

    i prefer 360 for forza but then i think id wna play against him on live on COD and piss off his mates from school that i know lol thats on a ps3 btw..

    so help me decide... discuss the good and bads about both consoles pleaseee

    also could we link 2 ps3/360 online things in the same house. and would this make our connection weak etc...

  2. kahn_v Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Ps3 all the way,... just waiting for Gran Turismo 5 to come out,,

    just connect your modem to your ps3 and off you go. no extra charges ...

    get a ps3 and add me :Smile: my gametag is kahn_v
  3. Eazalee Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Xbox 360 is better, I've got both, the 360 is so sick for gaming, but i guess thast becasue all my mates have the 360 too, i bet if we all had ps3s id love that. But i just pre-fer the xbox for gaming & PS3 for watching films/dvd's on as its so much quieter

    there both good, but xbox has its benefits

    ^^^ True, 360 IS better console. The only thing PS3 has is blue ray. Xbox has better games and better online, better media streaming, Better controllers and PS3 is twice as much as 360 ECT ECT

    i get this question all the time at work so this is my opinion i always say, they both have good points and bad points.

    PS3 good points:

    Blu ray movies

    Internet browser

    BBC iplayer

    Free to play online

    Rechargeable battery controllers

    Quiet fan

    Built in wireless

    Bad Points:

    Online service is shit

    Once you buy a game you will always have to install to hard drive otherwise it will run slow

    Controller feels fake

    Always updating

    The new slim console looks fake

    The way the menu is set its confusing

    Have to buy a WIRELESS mic if want to talk to mates online

    XBOX 360 Good points:

    Online service is amazing


    Forza 3, Gears of wars series, Halo 3, Fable 2

    Easy to use menu

    Windows media centre

    Great arcade games

    Mic comes with package so you can talk to your mates while playing a game

    4 Different consoles Arcade, Premium, Elite and Super Elite so there is always a package suitable for everyone

    Bad Points:

    Loud Console

    Red Rings

    Constantly buying battery unless you buy the play and charge kit

    Have to pay to play online

    No HD movies unless you buy a HD Drive

    Wireless adapter always fails

    Disc easily scratched

    Although Xbox 360 came out 2-3years out before the PS3, they still have competition over the XBOX 360 will is just fail, PS3 is more powerful than the XBOX 360 but XBOX is the most enjoyable console IMHO. I have both consoles but i just use the PS3 for Blu ray movies and i am always using my XBOX, had a customer yesterday who traded their PS3 for a XBOX which i directed him to the right way!

    oh yeah lol shows how long its been since i played a game on the ps3 forgot it takes what feels likea month worth of installing bullshit just so u can play it. so frustrating
  11. Eazalee Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    nice 1 guys... i only really wanted 2 get a ps3 for my gf's bro n his mates lol. i want forzaaaa so aj twisted my arm on msn n got me thinking straight. 360 ftw!! plus i can't be dealing with all this updating shit! pfft :Tongue:

    fong,, how much is a good package deal at game for an elite, preferably with forza 3 or cod mw2 and a headset maybe?

  12. F3RG1E Valued Contributor ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

    200 quid will get u an elite console, headset, cod:mw2 & forza 3 plus a months free subscription to xbox live.

    If your goin for the elite, then the new ones have got the new jasper chips and re-designed motherboards in them, which apparently reduces the chance of getting the 3 red lights and overheating problems. You can tell if its got one of these jchips inside if on the box it has 12.1A and also uses the 150W power supply instead of the old 170/175W ones.

    I've got both consoles and i havnt played the ps3 in over a month now, always on the 360 as most of my m8s are on xbox live aswell which is handy. Only use the ps3 for bluray movies really.

    It looks like you've made your decision, but I'd say alot of these 'bad points' are opinion really.

    1 - I don't think the online is shit. It's adequate for what I want - downloading demos, purchasing DLC, a bit of skate/gta/mgs online

    2 - What's wrong with installing to HDD? Although tbh I installed PES09 to HDD and hardly noticed any difference

    3 - Controller feels fine to me, I don't think it's changed much at all since PS1. Which in my opinion is a good thing.

    4 - It updates what, once a month on average? Hardly always, and even so it only takes 10 minutes.

    5 - I don't have a slim so can't comment

    6 - I find the menu a piece of piss to navigate. Want to watch a film? Scroll left to video, then down to whichever medium it's on. How is that hard?

    7 - I don't have a mic so can't really comment, but what's wrong with a wireless headset? Surely that's better than a wired one anyway?

    At the end of the day I'd say it's down to what games you want to play. I'm a massive Metal Gear fan so it had to be PS3 for me, but at the time Xboxes were half the price so I probably would have got one if I could play MGS4 on it. Although I'd resent having to pay for online, so maybe not.

    Oh another plus is that the HDD is a piece of piss to upgrade too as PS3 uses a normal 2.5" SATA. Handy if you want to download films, run Linux on it or whatever. I might be wrong, but I've heard that Xbox HDDs aren't that simple to upgrade?

    Alot of people say they aren't worth paying the extra, but I don't regret it at all and think it was definately worth it.
