20 replies 2 views Edited Nov 19, 2006
well i wanted a ps3 at first and i still do want one but i am considering to get a 360 instead because of price and avalablilty. but anyways my questions are:

1. how does the 360 hook up to the internet? do you just connect to a wireless network, or do you have to connect it with cables?
2. how much does xbox live cost?
3. are there any significant differences between the 360 and ps3?

1. if you want to commect wireless you have to buy a wireless adapter. in you could connect with a cable
2. its 50 for a year or 20 for 3 months
3. well i think the xbox is over because it has more games out and the xbox live is better

You can either use cables or buy a Wireless adapter (40$ on ebay)

XBL is so awesome, its worth every penny!

The only major differences are the 360 has a ton of great games and the graphics/Framerates in 360 games are Much better and are going to stay that way because the 360 is every developers main platform and the games will be ported to the PS3.

Dont forget that all the PS3 exclusives are going to be better than Multiplatofrm games though.

Sorry buddy but BluRay is over-rated, Sony has more power in certain areas as does Microsoft.
