xbox 360 vs ps3

the boss wants a wii or an xbox with kinect, the wii doesn't have anything appealing game wise to me.

I like what the xbox and ps3 have to offer (madden, nhl, sports games, and I also like driving games, mainly gran turismo 4 on my ps2).

It looks like xbox kinect has a lot more game options than the ps3 move.

The types of games I like come on both consoles, but when it comes to driving games I get to the comparisons between forza and gran turismo. Looks like Forza doesn't have as many rally options as the GT racing game.

Game selection = xbox
sports games = wash
driving games = ??? I am leaning towards GT5 because I know the GT games, I have never played Forza, will I be disapointed or will I survive?

I don't take days off work to play call of duty or whatever game it was that greasemonkey missed a week of work for.

XBox. Kinect is awesome, and you will not be disappointed with Forza.

I have started to miss mine since I sold it earlier this year.

I'm still playing a playstation 2 from when i was in college. Xbox 360 with kinect has more features than I am sure I would ever use.

Keep in mind that any online game play (all I really use PS3 for) on xblows will cost you...PS3 is free.

Since all he's going to get are my CoD stats I'll take my chances...Plus, and I could be wrong here, but everyone I know with an xbox has been through several. If you check online for overheated xbox you'll find all sorts of nifty contraptions to keep them cool. Sony decided to use a heat sink and adequate fan setup instead of 3 apartment box-fans and a hairdryer...

Welcome to 2008.

PS3s aren't free from issues either.

PS3 for the blu ray, online is free and your son will use it even if you don't, built in wireless, and turismo > forza hands down.

even if you don't play online your gonna pay extra too have netflix or any other online service (if you use em) where ps3 is free. Looking back, would rather have a xbox again.

I have a 360 but it rarely gets played. Used it for call of duty and racing games. Never over heats, just have to keep it away from the floor and keep it clean. Love the game selection and the controllers feel better in my hands. Ergonomics i believe is the word for that.

I have both and prefer my Xbox for games. The Xbox does have built in WiFi so no difference in that fact between the two. I think the main reason I prefer the Xbox over the playstation is the bigger controller. I have big gorilla hands and my hands do not cramp up with the Xbox controller.

ive had my xbox for well over 3 years and not one issue... those days are worked out with the newer models and if you're blowing through consoles that much.. well move out of your peanut butter castle and come out to the real world


PS chad another vote for Xbox..
