The PS3 is your best bet for Christmas

In the latest announcement from Sony Computer Entertainment, the U.S. and Canada will now be receiving the 40GB PS3 model bundled with Spiderman 3 BD for USD 399, and the 80GB for the reduced price of USD 499.

With these new changes, consumers must now know that when comparing the three consoles (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii), the PlayStation 3 is the best buy for this X-mas. Not only is it a bang for your buck, but it also offers the best features.

This comparison will go over price, features, and upcoming games for each console.

It certainly is the cheapest HD BluRay alternative out there indeed, bundled not with a game because Sony doesn't even see it as a gameconsole anymore, but with Spiderman a nice BluRay movie.

To play over and over, because Sony can't release games that fast.

PS3 best BluRay buy this Christmas
360 best gaming console to buy this Christmas!

How fast did MS release games when the 360 was 11 months old?

hazeblaze4021d ago

Pleas... everyone on these boards know that the PS3 is coming out with more exclusive titles, and at a faster rate, than the 360. Both systems have some great exclusives but the PS3 simply has more of them... and more of the ones that I can't wait to play.

Quit being a fanboy. It makes you look really stupid.

BubblesDAVERAGE4021d ago

360 is the best Sd console...not if you count the ps2...or the wii....but if your going HD there is only one way to go and thats ps3

Bathyj4021d ago

C'mon people, lets all go spam XboxKings.

Monchichi0254020d ago

If anybody doesn't think MicroSoft is not going to counter this, you must be RETARDED!!! MS will do an additional pricecut or a sweet bundle package, Like including Halo 3 with all new systems sold.

It looks good for Sony right now, but just wait. MS has always countered, why not now??

nasim4020d ago

your x360 is now finished in EUROPE. It is completely dead .

HS is murdering your GAYLO in EU and UK and has sold over 500 000 copies alone in 2 weeks


I would like to take this opportunity to shed a little light on some of the ignorant prejudices that reside within Mr. Nasim's pea-sized brain. Although not without overlap and simplification, I plan to identify three primary positions on Nasim's calumnies. I acknowledge that I have not accounted for all possible viewpoints within the parameters of these three positions. Nevertheless, Nasim believes that bad things "just happen" (i.e., they're not caused by Nasim himself). Unfortunately, as long as Nasim believes such absurdities, he will continue to commit atrocities. Yes, I realize that his madness is the direct consequence of self-hatred, false assumptions about society, and stupidity, but for the sake of brevity I've had to express myself in simplified terms.

Now let's have some fun and examine a few of Nasim's more ridiculous statements. First, Nasim said that the Eleventh Commandment is, "Thou shalt do exactly the things Nasim accuses raving spivs of doing". That's rather inerudite, isn't it? Later on, Nasim claimed that a totalitarian dictatorship is the best form of government we could possibly have. What this really means is that he wants to lay all of society open to the predations of organized criminality. If his plan to lock people up for reading the "wrong" classes of books or listening to the "wrong" sorts of music is to be discouraged then the wisest course of action is to stick to the facts and offer only those arguments that can be supported by those facts. Before we start down that road I ought to remind you that what I just wrote is not based on merely a single experience or anecdote. Rather, it is based upon the wisdom of accumulated years, spanning two continents, and proven by the fact that he is an interesting character. On the one hand, Nasim likes to enthrone falsehood in the very center of human thought. But on the other hand, we must get beyond name-calling. I don't think anyone questions that. But did you know that his subordinates maintain that the masses are muddleheaded and unfit for citizenship? Nasim keeps telling us that embracing a system of boosterism will make everything right with the world. Are we also supposed to believe that the rest of us are an inferior group of people, fit only to be enslaved, beaten, and butchered at the whim of our betters? I didn't think so.

Should someone think that I am saying too much, I am not saying too much, but much too little. For Nasim has for a long time been arguing that he is the one who will lead us to our great shining future. Had he instead been arguing that his policies have grown into the world's greatest enslavers of human minds, I might cede him his point. As it stands, the leap of faith required to bridge the logical gap in Nasim's arguments is simply too terrifying for me to contemplate. What I do often contemplate, however, is how he is absolutely gung-ho about misoneism because he lacks more pressing soapbox issues. One of the enduring effects of his beliefs (as I would certainly not call them logically reasoned arguments) is surely the way they will lower our standard of living. Okay, this letter has become much too long so I'll just jump right to the punchline: The crux of the issue is that I do not intend this letter to be in any way misinterpreted as a personal attack on Mr. Nasim.

It was also the best buy for me 4 months ago for the things I want out of a gaming console. Things like...

1-Built in WiFi
2-True High Definition for games
3-The BEST is High Def movies
4-A systems that won't show its limitations months after its release.
5-FREE Online game play
6-Able to access the World Wide Web
7-Best Exclusive games (Don't kid yourselves XBOTS)
8-Multiple card readers
9-Standard HHD
10-A system that does TRUE 1080p
11-Dolby Digital 5.1 for games & 7.1 for Blue-ray movies

My list can go on for some time.

These are things that xbooooox SUCKS at tremendously!!!...AAAHAHHAhA

Before this price cut, the Xbox 360 was definately the gaming console a customer would probably get as its cheaper and great AAA games on it. Now the choice is made harder because the price is relatively matched.

It all depends on the type of games someone might want. You want a great FPS multiplayer experience with a million people? Here's Halo 3 - get an Xbox.

Do you want a platform genre? Ratchet or Uncharted. Take your pick and here's your PlayStation.

Do you want an RPG/sci fi shooter? Mass Effect is your ride. Enjoy. Now think about what you'll play in a few months and next year. Check the upcoming titles for both platforms and make your choice. Personally I don't think Microsoft's 2008 lineup comes close to what they have had this year in terms of Exclusives. The only major ones I can think of Fable 2 and maybe Gears if its released next year.

I've said it many times before and some Xbox fans are agreeing with me now; Microsoft need to show what they have next year. This is my biggest concern with them, can they keep up the momentum in terms of AAA games?

ActionBastard4021d ago

No. We've all seen the '08 lineup. '09 expect the 720. "Meh" comes to mind, but more than that, with devs becoming more familiar with the tools, Sony stepping up 3rd party support and a growing install base, it's going to take a whole helluvalot more than Fable 2, Banjoe and Alan Wake to stop the Wii and PS3.

squelchy154021d ago

id rather stick with my 360 thank you:)

Real gamer 4 life4021d ago
