Guardian Prefers PS3 40GB To Xbox 360 Arcade

Now that there's a multitude of versions and bundles for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it's trickier for the general consumer to figure out which to purchase.

The Guardian recently did an analysis of both PS3 and Xbox 360 and has decidedly more positive things to say about Sony's new iteration as compared to Microsoft's.

Well i see where he is coming from, and i agree with him 100 percent. i think the ps3 give you the biggest bang for your buck. for 10o bucks more you get a blueray player plus a harddrive. and if you say the 40gb ps3 is a gimped version then you can also say that the arcade version is a gimped xbox 360 aswell.

From a hardware standpoint, yes, the PS3 is a good deal any way you slice it because of the built-in blu ray capabilities...
If you like playing games, and want to have plenty of them before mid 2008, it's impossible to argue that the Xbox360 or Nintendo Wii is they way to go.

There is still a price difference of over $100 between the Xbox360 arcade and 40gb PS3... That kinda makes it hard to compare the two. The ONLY thing they have in common is that they are the entry level offerings for each console, which isn't grounds for comparison in my opinion.

I thought all 360's were gimped from the start..? and along the way M$ just keep adding features that the PS3 came with...

The 360 is seriously a piece of garbage...they haven't even fixed the RROD yet... not until the change the 90nm to 65nm chips. They should call it sh!t in a box... Looks like sh!t, runs like sh!t, sounds like sh!t, games are sh!t(unless you're hardcare for Sci Fi shooters- I'm sure as heck not) Sh!t in a junkbox!

I don't think there's anyone in their right mind that would prefer the XBOX 360 Arcade over the PS3 40 GB PS3

It's not about PS3 vs 360. It's about PS3 40Gb vs 360 Arcade. That thing is at a really low price for a sole Blu-ray player let alone a great gaming console. And with the bundle offers...
