Ps3/PC is the way to go this gen.
No problem with that i own both and play them side by side. Its just the stupid fanboys who say ps3 has no games that really get on my nerves with there ignorant bull shi( I'll Play Killzone 2 On P&P with Project Gotham 4
ps1 and N64 yo hands down WOULD HAVE been the best combo in the history of gaming.
Agreed. PS3/PC combo is the only way to go. You get all the PS3 exclusives and console exclusives, then with the PC you can play all the 360 games in better quality plus PC games. 360 + PS3 is a joke combo for amatuers. They have too many similar games.
Right now I'm just waiting for Killzone 2 so I'm playing Lost Odyssey. It great have the best of both worlds(Lost Odyssey isn't the best, but the story telling is fantastic).
@Wife Of The Bad Guy- There are many who can not afford a gaming. Sure some good PC games do not require a high end computer, but most of the next gen style games do. Thats why a 360/PS3 combo is a good mix. You can own both systems for under under $1000 USD w/ peripherals. No need to upgrade within a year or two. The author is write on some points. You can argue which one is better, but really I have sat back and enjoyed gaming like never before. Sure it is okay for people to prefer a certain console, but denying that they both are unique and offer a entertaining time is not accurate. I personally own all three consoles and a high end PC.
Listen to the article...it's what I have said since I started commenting : Having both a PS3 & 360 is THE gaming experience. There have been unbelievable deals with a 360 at $150 and the PS3 at $100 or $200 off! Dell : http://n4g.com/ps3/News-272... Conns : http://www.conns.com/73482.... 360 & PS3 gamers...you're NOT enemies...your gamers, and both your consoles have great games. So put aside the arguments over who's best and see for yourself. Enjoy them all!
I know. I feel what you are saying. Game on.
As a new PS3 owner it's definately working for me. No matter the game I got the machine to cover it and both systems do some things better than the other's so I can have the best from both.
you got a ps3 seriously? Are you still going to call the ps3 fans fish-heads?
GOOD FOR YOU
You have been an anti ps3 wierdo on here as long as pog, mart and all the other losers. Show your PSN fanboy
Their fanboy personas are either built up out of insecurity or just because they want to be annoying. Originally they thought badly of the PS3, and they keep that front up. But when even more great games start to come for the system, why shouldn't they get a PS3? Mart has a PS3. Crab now has a PS3. More and more of us are becoming multi-console owners, and I'm sure both Sony and MS are loving it.
He has a ps3. And games for it.
Yep,PS360 is the way to go,the Nintendo Wii sucks!!
It's just lacking in the game department.
Yeah, the wii does suck. I was expecting more than a wiggle here and a waggle there.
PS3, 360, PC, all great in my book. I just am not a Wii fan. I don't think I could ever like or recommend one.
I have both PS3 and 360 and I am pretty satisfied with my purchase. Sometimes I think about getting a Wii but I just can't convince myself:(
PS360 is the way to go. PC gaming is just to much to keep upgrading.
That's a complete fallacy in all honesty. You only need upgrade your PC as often as the next console cycle comes around, if you don't mind playing games on minimum settings. Or you could just upgrade your graphics card every few years - it kept my old PC going. Consoles cost a lot more - you admit to having a PS3 and a 360 - how much have you spent on the consoles themselves, and peripherals for each? Live subscription? Console manufacturers are milking us dry - especially with all this talk of owning both consoles. There are more than enough games on either console. Unless you spend your time doing nothing but gaming, you can't possibly get all the great games that have come out.
I have both and enjoy both highly, so i would say yes, PS360 + Full HD TV is the best combo ever. The only problem i have is that my PS3 is getting old (a 60GB) and start to make noise, and the 360 always make noise (even if the game is installed on the hard drive). The ultimate combo would be PS360 + Wii, but the problem is that Wii in HD... well... You shouldn't even think about it. That's so ugly it becomes disgusting.
360/ps3/wii/gaming PC/ds/PSP/Iphone jesus I'm a gadget whore!
I have one next gen console already that is also my BD player. But I my get a last gen (Wii) in about a year when it is 5 bucks.
360 is just too much failure wii is just too much weewee PC is just too much hassle it is entertaining to watch the coats turning though. :) most die hard xb!tches have become tender "PS360 owners"... cute... it's funny how popular and crowded "the titanic" is getting lately... where's my daily doom? i miss it b!tches XDDD
How many accounts do you have?
how many d!cks do you have?
Whats the benefit of a 360? I dont get it. Gears, sorry K2, nothing else to compare.
What's the benefit of a PS3? A bluray player, oh nah I got one of those. for killzone 2 a 6 hour campaign with no co-op? nah... for 400$ for one game nah I will just have to pass and wait for COD Modern warfare 2
im pretty sure 100 % of us has a pc ( a decent one hopefully to play some decent games) an a ps3.
nope, i disagree. I like my games on a console and on my large screen tv. I have a very powerful PC and could care less about playing games on it. I might lose some bubbles here, but it seems that only PS3 fanatics are the ones who can't see how valuable a PS3/360 combo is and therefore resort to PS3/PC arguments. Chances are, if you are posting on here, that you own a PC. So if we are talking about gaming in general, and not console gaming, then why not have the best of all and own a PS3 and 360 also. I understand that not everyone can afford having both, so pick the console of your choice. But to say that PS3/360 is not the best combo is just wrong, especially when that was the point of this article. Don't be blinded by your own hate. I have alot of games to enjoy this month with my combo, and even into the early part of next month. GTA IV:L&D, Star Ocean 4, Killzone 2 in Feb Halo Wars, MLB 2k9, RE5, C&C: Red Alert 3 in Mar Not to mention there are a ton of other exclusives and multiplats that are a definite rental. Have fun all
you can get 360 exclusive for free on the PC.
And your good. The PS3 & 360 lifespan will be a lot longer compared to ps2/xbox.
Being the owner of a high-end PC, Wii, DS, PSP, PS3 and other gadgets I think that having a good choice keeps your gaming mind open. I know I join in on the fanboi stuff from time to time but it's really just for a laugh, if the 360 ever gets reliable then I'll run out and get one straight away but I think I have a good set-up as it is. PS3/PC is probably the most versatile way to got at the moment.
Wii lack of graphics and 360 always some hardware/software problems. Not looking to pick a fight, but its true. PS3 > Wii60
Honestly the 360 takes care of all my gaming needs. Their is nothing I want on a ps3. Never cared for MGS. LBP is for kids. I prefer Forza over GT. KZ2 looks great but I have enough shooters on the 360 and I really don't like the control. For my needs, the 360 has everything I need. Tons of superb exclusives with the best versions of BIG multi platform games like Orange Box, GTA4, Fallout 3, Resident Evil 5, etc...
Oh hello. Its the opinionated 'Best Versions' arguement that ran out in mid 2007.
LBP is not for kids, nor have you ever played MGS4 (best game ever this gen) and saying you prefer Forza over GT is just you being a 360 fanboy. I have you pegged. I know who you are. Allot of the newer cats on here may not realize it, but you are an OG anti ps3 fud spreading wierdo like mart, pog etc. Quit lying. Just think if you had a ps3 you could,hear the movies you were watching in HD, play games online for free, have a decent quality machine that lasts, play DiVx right off the drive (no one cares about streaming so don't even try), use sata drives, use bluetooth...list goes on.
and sorry but a multi like grid beats GT, mgs4 is NOT the best game this gen (in your opinion maybe but not mine, I'd rather play fallout 3), my kids play LBP a hell of a lot more than I do, the KZ2 demo was ok but way too short and I'm streaming galactica that I downloaded this morning to my 360 at this moment so yes, I do care.Why should I take up my HDD on my PS3 with movies when I can stream them? I have to use that space to install bloody demos! In fact I watch more content on my 360 than on my PS3, I play more online games on my 360 than on my PS3 and I play HD content on both my 360 and PS3. Oh and I have enough room on my PS3 and 360 HDD without worrying about sata HDDs.
Ahh they work so dam well together. For me its often been MGS4, Tekken 5 online, GT5P for PS3 and L4D and Forza for 360 that keeps me switchin those babies on again and again... What eva floats your boat i guess. If anyone hasnt played MGS4 or L4D yet please slap yourself silly
Nope, PS3/PC is the way to go.
That is actually the PERFECT combo right there.
I've got 2 ps3s, 3 360s, a wii, a ps2, and 2 pcs, a ds and a psp. My names John and im a gameaholic. Oh and wii has homebrew so it can play wii, gamecube, magedrive, n64, snes and ps1 games. :)
I picked up an Xbox360 Premium at it's NZ Launch. Loved it. Thought PS3 would never be better. Eventually upgraded to an Elite, but thats another story. Once the PS3 launched in NZ (somewhat after the rest of the world) I grabbed a 60gig. In owning both consoles, it's great being able to sample the best of both worlds. End of the day, we are all gamers. Why not own both?
some people are too ignorant to be sensible
You don't really NEED a 360. Unless you are a majorly FPS player. Dont get me wrong 360, for me at least has about 3 games I want. And ME might come over to PS3 meaning I don't need a 360. The American gaming media wants people to suck up all this MS love, but they haven't showed me any. I happy with my PS3/Wii/dc, because I'm not missing out on anything. *My best friend had a GREAT gaming PC* I'm also go to go out and say THEY AREN'T NEEDED IN GAMING.
its the opposite for me i can't bring myself to spend the extra money on a ps3 for only 2 games that interest me Kz2 and R2 both look amazing but spending upwards of 600 dollars to play 2 games just can't bring myself to do it
$300 (160 gig) Free shipping . . . http://n4g.com/ps3/News-272... There were even better $250 deals over the holidays, and a $150 deal recently on the XBox 360. It's a great time for any gamer!
that unit still cost $400 you have to sign up for and use a Sony Credit card to get that deal so get deeper into credit card debt or not go with the deal and pay full price which would put price between $500-$600 before sales tax package based on full price deal Ps3-$399.99 extra controller-$60.00 KZ2-$60.00 R2-$60.00 Hdmi cable-$30.00 plus 6% sales tax $646.60
i have a ps3, 360, and pc for farcry 2 and fallout 3.
gaming purchase 1st half of 2009: x360: Halo Wars, SF4, RE5, Lost and the Damned, Ninja Blade, Star Ocean Last Hope, H.A.W.X PS3: Kilzzone 2, MLB 09 The Show, Infamous Yea, PS360 is definitely the way to go. Don't forget future games like Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Halo ODST, GOW3, GT5, Uncharted 2 can only be enjoyed if you have both. Console haters go somewhere else. Opps, the is N4G, so this is where the x360,, I mean console haters go.
I have both a 360 and PS3 and decent PC. I have more games for 360 mostly due to it being out longer, but in this coming year my PS3 collection will probably grow. My only beef with the 360 is its lack of hardware reliability. I usually only buy PC exclusive games for my PC, or games that were designed for PCs mainly i.e. RTSs, RPGs,Sim games etc.
