The Christmas holiday is nearly upon us and the gift of gaming is high on many a wish list. But when it comes to buying home gaming hardware for that special someone, making the right choice is more difficult than ever.
Ideally, I would get someone a PS3 bundle and a year of PS+ That way not only am I getting the games included in the bundle, but for the price of 1 game I am getting monthly games for the person I am buying for. A PS3 bundle and a PS+ subscription is the only way to go for me. Sorry to sound so pro Sony because I certantly am not. It just sucks getting a console and having to purchase loads of games for it.
So u give "free" Games to Christmas he gets taken away after a year because he dont want to pay for PS+? Nice! A XBOX bundle and a year Gold Live is the only way to go for me.
So you give online play and the potential to watch youtube, netflix etc etc and it gets taken away after a year because they don't want to pay for GOLD? Argument works both ways.
I love how these sites compare all the consoles, and list a ton of features for Xbox 360 such as Netflix, Hulu +, etc..., but fail to say all those features and online gaming are on the other consoles as well. That being said it depends on what your friends and family have. But I would pick the PS3 first and then the Xbox 360 second. PS3 has free online to play with friends, and a $50 PS+ subscription gets the person 16+ free games to play, not to mention all the free games to play in Home, Blu Ray, apps, and more. PS3 & PS+ and Christmas shopping is over. Xbox 360 is great for similar reasons (DVD, apps), XBL, and cheaper price.
Right. Argument goes both ways. Your opinon isnt my opinon. All I was saying. Difference on N4G is PS3 -> AGREES XBOX -> DISAGREES Year after year the 360 sells better on Christmas than the PS3. So I guess at least im not alone with my opinon although this here is PS3-Winterwonderland.
I could never do that.... I would keep it for myself. No just joking, it would be the best option.
A PS3 bundle, which with only be having one game would already outdo an Xbox bundle with a year of Live, would be of even more value with a year of PS+. Plus it has games coming out next year, PS3 is of most value right now, objectively speaking.
They don't mention the 3Ds or Vita.
That's a tough one. I'd say go with the wii u. I do own all three consoles and I play my wii u the least. But ps3 and 360 are going to be replaced with there successor. That's why I say wii u
Maybe wii-u since its the new thing. After that it would probably be xbox360.
Stay away from PSFreeze, it's a rinky dink console. Their apps freeze, games freeze and so does ps home, plus its all laggy as hell. The console was built inside joe blows garage.
Right....because the Xbox 360 never had issues like just not turning on for no reason.
I do believe that the red ring of death plagued the gaming world from launch to a couple years ago.
Let's be fair next comment, huh?
The PS3 has the most value. Game system, blu ray player and a streaming device for netflix, hulu, etc that doesn't require a yearly fee. And only PS3's yearly subscription gives you a game library to start with. Definitely the better buy.
Looking at whats coming out next year, go with the PS3:)
A PS3 bundle with a year of plus. The 360 is great but it doesn't offer a service like plus and the Wii U has a tiny library at the moment. Motorola RAZR i
