What should I get? PS3 or Xbox 360?

15 replies 4 views Edited Mar 12, 2007
Ok, so I'm about to order my 40' 1080p Samsung HDTV, and I want a gaming console to justify the HD part of HDTV. So I really torn between teh 360 and PS3. Cost is an issue, the PS3 is expensive, so here is how much it'd cost me to get everything I need:

Xbox 360

Xbox 360 Console: $400
Extra controller: $50
Game: $60
XBL for one year: $50
Total:  $560 + tax

PS3

20 GB PS3 Console: $500

HDMI cables:
anywhere from $20-50
Game: $60
Extra controller: $50
Total:$630-660 + tax

So the PS3 is a good $90-120 more than the 360. And don't tell me to get the 60GB PS3 or anything, I want the 20GB, and I know they are hard to find.

Now, I don't know which one to choose. I want the one that will probably win the console war, because whichever wins, will have more games. I like RPGs to an extent, and I love FPSs. I'm a pretty big Halo fan. And I played Resistance, and it was awesome
Here are the Pros and cons

PS3 pros:

Have a very good look to it, and I like the color black.
Resistance Fall of Man, Lair, and Killzone 2.
Free Online service.
PS Home
Has a blu-ray player so I can watch hi-def movies without paying for the $200 Xbox addon.

Cons:
Price

Xbox 360 pros:

Awesome Online
Gears of War, Halo 3, and Blur Dragon.
Cheaper.
I have friends hwo have an 360, so it'd be fun playing with them.

Cons:
I don't like the look of it.
Paying for online(even though it's still cheaper than the 360)


So what do you think? I like playing games co-op with my brother(which is why I need the extra controller) Please help me, thanks in advance!

This thread: LOCKED  No comparision threads in these forums!  Also the 360 right now is a perfect choice, but what the PS3 will offer in late 2007 will make it a better choice, really depends on the games you want

I've heard HDMI doesn't really matter when it comes to the cables.  The cable either works or it doesn't.  Whether it be $5 or $100.

Well if you want to take full advantage of your 1080p T.V. get the PS3.

Comparison threads aren't allowed? I thought that was just in the PS3 boards

That's a really stupid rule, I just want some people's insight of what console would be more fun or whatnot.

Nope, no comparisons...it creates too many flamewars.
