O and by the way, is 350 worth it for a 20 gb ps3 ? What can't I do with only ps3? d I dont want to get ripped pff

You can get a new 20gig XBOX 360 for 300$. Unless there's some exclusive PS3 titles that you absolutely need to have, don't bother with that console.

300$ sounds interesting for xbox... whats the difference between that and the ps3?

The PS3 as it is now, is really for casual gamers. The graphics of every non-exclusive(NHL,Madden, Vegas 2) games aren't as good as the 360, although the differences are minimal. It has some great exclusives titles like Motorstorm, Resistance, MGS4.

You can also play movies in HD Blu-ray or Divx format, something you cannot do on the 360.

The 360 on the other hand was built from the ground up for games and is also developer friendly. For virtually every console game, the 360 is the main development platform so the graphics are better and there's always a few more features. The online portion is also much more robust and user friendly.

I'm an owner of the original Xbox system and loved it.

When looking into a new gaming system I went with the PS3, 80-gig, which was fairly expensive.

Since then we've also boughten an Xbox 360.

I still prefer the PS3 over the 360.

We get way more use out of the PS3, with some exclusive games on it. The only game that's "big" and exclusive for the 360 has been Halo, which was a good brainwashing scheme to get people to buy into it.

With that said, I've had my PS3 for six months now, and the 360 for three months.

I've never had a problem with the PS3, but my 360 has been sent in for repairs twice now (in three months). Thank God we opt'd for the extended warrenty.

360 also has better online in my opinion, possibly because you need to pay for it.

360 also gets exclusive content for certain games (Example: Fallout 3 will have downloadable content for the 360, but not PS3).

I'm waiting for a Price drop to get the PS3, and then it's only so I can play MGS4.

I mostly want to play GTA's , NHL's and Smackdown Vs Raws... if I understand, I better get a Xbox BUT with an extended warranty, I dont care about movies and all that stuff, as long as I have GTA, nhl and wrestling, i'm good

Thanks for the advice, think i'm gonna call best buy

quick question guys (or gals) about the ps3, are you all using it on an HD TV ? Would the graphic still be good on a "conventional" tv or does it become somewhat bad looking? Would it compare to a ps2 quality on a non HD?

yeah, ive got a ps3 on a regular tube tv, until we switch to hd(soon, soon) the graphics are alot better then my old xbox/ps2 graphics, but compared to hd, it pales in comparison.

that being said its definetly worth buying just for the improvements in gameplay

Graphics are still very good on a regular TV. Actually nothing beats a regular TV when it comes to image quality, the problems are the low resolution and standard size screen.

I've got both and i can honestly said ive used my ps3 about 3 or 4 times over the past year lol.

Talking about a waste of money, the online play sucks, it's not that good of a blu ray player, the only thing i love about the damn thing is the remote control lol.

And yes ill never be hire as a spokesperson for playstation.

The online is actually better on the PS3. On the 360, online play is strictly P2P, with a few exceptions. On the PS3, many games have dedicated servers which provides an online experience as good as the PC. Not to mention that you don't need to pay a monthly fee to fully enjoy the online network.

Another thing that bothers me greatly on the 360 are the ranked servers and the inability to join in progress. All the servers are ranked on the PS3 and you don't have to find a new session every time one ends.
