    My vote is for XB360 for a number of reasons

    • Xbox Live (Largest online gaming community worldwide)
    • XB360 is ALOT cheaper than the PS3
    • Games for the XB360 are cheaper
    • More variety of games (Will no doubt change later though)
    • More accessories available
    • Easily interfaced with PC

    I think the PS3 is the best console but not the best one to buy, you can't beat the value of the Xbox 360!

    Personally i'd like a wii + pc tbh.

    I'll also be buying a 360 in a few months so that gets my vote.

    Id vote 360 because it has more and better games at the moment...than the Ps3. But did you hear they are going to release a cooler version of the 360 with a 65nm chip and its suspected to have a new HDMI cable for 1080p with IPTV.

    The 360 has been out longer, and is better supported at the minute, so more people will have them, so you will get biased suggestions.

    I have a 360, and think that there are some great games out there for it, and they seem to be coming through nice and steady. It has already proven itself and is here to stay for the next few years.

    The PS3 is too new to tell, but will be very similar to the 360 and hopefully be as well supported. Its just a little over priced at the minute, and not everyone wants blu-ray.

    At the moment it has to be the 360, but in a year or 2, who knows.

    As for specs they are pretty much the same. As for games it depends on the maker of that game. Some games are for the 360 only and some are for the ps3 only. It really comes down to which brand your more loyal too.

    With current pricing they are both rip-off's, but the 360 is the smarter buy.

    lol, how do you figure? Either one costs a fraction of what you paid for your PC and both will out perform it by a country mile. Sometimes people forget what they are getting with these new consoles. You get a multi core CPU, a very nice video card, RAM, a DVD player, HDD and a PSU. Considering that a $300 XBOX 360 core system will play games as well or better than a $2000 PC I really don't see how you think that they are both rip offs. The PS3 is also offering you a blu-ray player. While I agree that the PS3 is priced way too high considering that it is intended for a gaming platform but they have to charge that much for it because of the blu-ray player. They could have easily cut that out and been very competitive in pricing with Microsoft. But when you put into perspective of what they offer and the performance that they deliver, it's really no comparison to the cost of a cutting edge PC.

    Please don't start to compare a PC and console, they are two different things. As far as graphics go though, an Xbox 360 can't match a current top computer, it might have been somewhat close when it came out but certainly not anymore. No argument.

    As it stands the Playstation 3 doesn't seem to have much, if anything going for it at the moment. The games look like PS2 games with a farther draw distance. It still needs time to have quality games come out to see what it really can do, plus it's quite pricy. Horrible console launch if you ask me, hopefully Sony can catch up.

    The Xbox 360 on the other hand has several games that look quite nice and are fun to play.

    Well said, but even playing the game on a 24" widescreen LCD monitor is extremely nice. The PC gaming scene currently does not have an answer to Gears of War graphically. While no doubt there is faster PC hardware available (like mine) there is currently nothing available to compare to GOW. Not to mention that My PC cost me over $3,000.......
