"For the first time in decades, gamers have the opportunity to pay the same amount for very similar competing consoles"
But I think we all know which would be the best choice
While I agree the Slim is the best choice (I'm assuming here) it's not that simple for everyone
Well for the price of the launch PS3 you cant both, with 1 or 2 games so why not.
Yead I agree, getting both is the absolute best choice
The article never states which is the best choice
Not everybody can afford both...
360 has what ps3 lacks...GAMES? wtf
This is one of those free product ads disguise as an article! WTF is wrong with you people!
PS3. "It can only do EVERYTHING!" Seriously, most games are coming for both consoles anyway. But then GOTY exclusive games... well, we know where those are gonna be or are.
their site under the name Bryce to help clear things up for their readers bothe consoles have good games the site saying the ps3 has no games and a couple games they do list arent even on the ps3 but rather the psp, makes it very clear the author has done no research and hasnt even checked to see whats out for the console. hopefully their readers also check out the comment section to get a more balanced analysis
A lot of people are saying get both. I disagree because until a certain company can get their failure rates down to a reasonable number I refuse to support them. By supporting them you are pretty condoning their behavior. This isn't a fanboy rant. I used to have all consoles and thought that the whole failure rate thing was a conspiracy. I found out the hard way unfortunately. Fortunately for me however, my collection of games where very small so I didn't put a huge investment into the system. My friends however cannot say that same. They've invested a lot of time and made many friends and bought many games. To them it's too late and I understand why they keep purchasing a faulty console over and over again. My two cents.
hmm one or the other..... or instead both! obviously if you are capable you should have both, i mean why sell yourself out of the exclusives on either side? they are very SIMILAR and very DIFFERENT at the same time. just because the last year or so havent been as good for the xbox as far as games are concerned does not mean it will stay this way, and in the same vein the games coming out for the ps3 have been phenomenal, but upcoming games could suck.
How about have neither because both are garbage, overpriced pieces of junk.
PS3 is the easy choice, but both systems are so cheap now that you might as well get both and have complete access to all the greatest games in the current gen library
I have both. I rarely play either one, but I use the 360 every day for Netflix. If it was not for LiveArcade titles I would barely play on the 360. The PS3 collects dust unless I need a blu-ray player. But it is summer time, no games to play really. And after I play all of this fall's GREAT PC games, I will start renting console games and I am sure I will get plenty of mileage out of both consoles.
I have a Phat PS3 and a 360 and I'm happy :)
To be honest, I rather buy 2 PS3 slims. Nothing on the 360 interests me.
bang for buck: go with the Ps3 Slim
TBH I'd agree the amount of stuff you get for $299 by buying a slim is unmatched.
That's why I got one, been waiting for a price cut and once it came I snatched the opportunity, it's a steal at $299 :)
is the best choice.
You could always buy the 360 if you need an extra space heater. Although...I suspect many 360 owners take comfort in their RROD night light.
another article that says PS3 has no games...! what are we back in 2006? is that what's happened?
You got to think though...if they couldn't hang on to that as a criticism what would they use...?
Haha, they will hold on to that excuse as long as they can. My only question is how can they even say that in 09? They haven't had a solid lineup in 09 at all.
They say it as if anybody looking to buy a 360 is going to run out and purchase all the 2k6 and 2k7 games released on the 360... Sorry, but the only games that truly make any difference are those released within the last two years. Anything earlier is just fluff int he bargain bin and not everybody has time to play the back catalogs of sad early console release games.
Uhh... Halo 3 is still selling, and it was released in September of 2007.
Halo 3 is still a mediocre shooter that hasn't even changed with ODST and still no1 cares. PS3 is better for me. I know, I have both.
I think before you judge people, it would be best to click on their profile. That being said, I'm pretty sure that was the biggest contradiction I've ever seen. "I know Halo 3 is still selling, but no one cares about Halo 3." Also, why not just stick with your main account? You created that like, a month ago, right? You've hardly visited the site, let alone commented, yet you seem to know everyone around here. Is your main account banned from the Gamer Zone?
"On the other hand, the Xbox 360 Elite has something that the PS3 lacks — GAMES." HAHAHA!
And here's me thinking the issue of the PS3 having no games had died... Lol and LOL!
I guess when people run out of reasons to criticise the PS3, they have to bring a few reasons back from retirement...lol
Beat me to it..motherflopper. I did lol though...We've gone back in time.
Buy a PS3 to play games and watch bluray movies and buy the failbox as a heater. End of discussion.
Lmao +1 for the name and avatar! freaking hate that snob son of a b**ch
Exactly, I cringed when I read that
I think even by late 2010, "journalists" will still be using that as an excuse to bash the PS3...such a shame
Another "journalist" who doesn't do their homework...tisk, tisk.
Report this retarded story.
Yeah, I saw that and couldn't believe it. What is he smoking, and where can I get some?
I bet his knowledge of consoles only extends to what he has heard in the local Gamestop, I mean really!?
The main thing keeping me from buying a 360 is: The Hardware and Most of the 360 biggest games coming out on the PC. And then when you add in the fact that most games are Multiplat., there really isn't much incentive for me to buy another console. Having both the PS3 and 360 is great, but if you have both a Great PC and a PS3, you can play most of the games out there. If most of the Xbox 360's biggest games weren't on the PC and had more reliable hardware, I would probably already own one. "On the other hand, the Xbox 360 Elite has something that the PS3 lacks — GAMES. The PS3 has some impressive titles — Final Fantasy XIII, Genji: Days of the Blade, Grand Tourismo 5, Heavenly Sword, and Jak and Dexter: The Last Frontier are all PS3 exclusive." LOL, this idoit didn't even spell Gran Turismo and Jak and Daxter right, and FAILED to mention other quality PS3 exclusives like Valkyria Chronicles, Metal Gear Solid 4, LBP, inFamous, Killzone 2, Uncharted, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, Ratchet and Clank, Resistance, etc... the PS3 has PLENTY of games. The argument that the PS3 "has no games" is OLD.
Final Fantasy XIII is not a PS3 exclusive and Jak and Daxter is not on the PS3. Jak and Daxter: The Last Frontier is on the PSP and PS2.
Wasn't interested in the article, but I love your profile pick, beautiful car.
lol I thought that had expired already?
having both is great,but if you had to get only one,id say get the ps3 cause it wont die in the first year lol.
If you have the money, buy both...........if you don`t.....choose.............. .wisely!
Because there are a lot more factors involved that bang for your buck and quality games(which both have plenty of). Take in to consideration what console your friends own and play, are you ready cough up some money for Live every now and again? Are you paranoid about system failure, what kind of games do you like?( there is no use buying the PS3 if you don't like the game's and vice versa), Is blu-ray a big draw for you etc. Unless you have the money to buy both there are a lot of factors to concider when buying a console so it aint as easy as you may think.
See, instead of writing a wall of text like that, i just kept it simple. Choose wisely.
But others won't.
If you can get both, definitely get both. If you can't, I'd say PS3
i Would have to agree w/aclayPS3 on this one.. if you have a decent to great PC and a ps3 your pretty much good to go... most 360 "exclusives" are on PC as well,so that leaves very little incentive to purchase a 360 for a select few games.. and the massive hardware failure doesnt help either. if you want to play the ps3 Exclusives,you have no choice but to own a ps3 (or play it on a ps3)-
...get 2 PS3's!!! ;-P (Did you lot really think i was going to say get a xBox 360???) ;-D
Haha. Very nice. *presses green button with + sign* :)
Or we can buy a heater and a ps3. :)
...buy 3 PS3's!!! ;-D Remember...PS3 DOES EVERYTHING;) (Apart from being a Heater like the xBox 360!!!) ;-D + Bubbles for all PS3 Fans on this page;)
Bubble for you too Ken and ps3 fans.
Is that you Saaking? It sure sounds like you. lol edit: Whatever you say there Obama. You're correct, i have 10 accounts and i give myself bubbles like you do. If you don't believe me, just check my bubble count. Impressive, i know ;)
no I am not. I am too lazy switching accounts to troll; hence I only have 1 account unlike most of you bots here.
...Nasim...what you going to do about it??? ;-D I'll bubble you on my other names later 'Obama'...Ooooops!!! ;-D I WAS ONLY JOKING MODS!!! ;-D (Look up the word Joke if you don't know what it means)...Oooops Again!!! ;-D
L4D Halo ODST MassEffect Forza Gear's Tekken Cod what's your choice?
Shooter, shooter, role playing shooter, ok racer, shooter, niche fighter, and shooter. I don't think anyone is surprised, what you as an xbox fan enjoy. Pretty typical, considering that just about every single one of you posts the exact same thing, but to each there own.
As far as I know they are multiplats. Besides most of thos games are out on PC so why not get a gaming PC with that logic. But if those ae the only games that appeal to you go ahead, but I think that you are just too naive to even want to enjoy anything on the PS3. I bet I'll find some lame comment bashing Uncharted 2, GT5, The Last Guardian, Heavy Rain, MAG, The Agency, Agent, Ratchet & Clank etc once one of them get released by you who will not even have touched upon any of them.
Uncharted 2, Ratchet & Clank: Crack in Time, GOW3, Heavy Rain, The Last Guardian... (theres GT5 and MAG but im not into it) looks like im gonna have more fun than you. btw your comment contains almost the entire 360 library, my comment contains whats coming on PS3 for the next 6 month.
If I matched up by theme? I'd go like this: L4D - Dead Nation Halo - Resistance Mass Effect & Gears - Uncharted & SOCOM Forza - Gran Turismo & NFS: Shift Tekken - Tekken & God of War COD - COD & Killzone 2 And for the uncategorized (some already released), I'd choose Ratchet & Clank, Heavy Rain, Warhawk,
If i was just coming into this gen, having never played either console, i would definately go for the PS3, and thats coming from a big 360 lover. The free online is going to swing it for a lot of people. Its the one thing that i think is holding microsoft back
Yes i had one but did not like it.Load time's was a pain for me . I don't like to wait for game's to load up on the PS3 at all and i dont like the PS3's interface at all.Last i don't like the controller's.PS3 is Great but it's not for everyone.My choice Xbox 360.The Game's and the controller's say's it all
i used to have a ps3, got it free on mobile contract. I liked it, tho at the time is was quite expensive so i sold it on ebay while i could get a fair bit for it. I played a few games and liked it, i'm definately going to pick one up when i get a bit of spare cash
