I've sold my PS2 and Gamecube to take a break from console gaming (still playing on the PC) until the new systems come out. Problem is, I'm already totally clueless on which system to get. XBox360 or PS3.

Obviously, I'll be able to get more answers when they actually release, but I find it funny that I'm already fretting over this.

Have any of you made a solid decision yet on which system you're getting? I'm lost.

It all depends, each system is going to be relatively the same price some offering more than others. Both look brilliant, but the look of the games cant be measured by the power because most companies dont utilize all of their potential. Although Sony has announced that they will be using Blu-Ray technology on their discs which hold like 50gigs of space. Now this can be good or it can be bad. The good side is that they are wanting movie like graphics and they will get that, the downside is that they probably will just pack it with a bunch of FMV sequences and call it a day.

I believe it will come down to how people choose between the xbox and ps2, if you like Sports and online gaming go with an Xbox. If you like anything else go for the ps3.

However there is always the nintendo Revolution. :)

I think it will be a Ps3 for me to be honest. Im not a fan of having a mainframe in my room (XBOX 360) and am not a major fan of the nintendo games (other than the mario series).

Ps3 offers a lot more than the others. I read somewhere that the XBOX 360 is just an extension of the old xbox rather than something revolutionary. The Ps3 is like 15 times more powerful than the xbox 360 and even more powerful than that when comapred to the Nintendo Revolution. It has internet out of the box, bluetooth connectivity. 7 USB ports for all types of camera's and such like. Plus it looks slick. I will try and get a pic of it but most that you have probably seen are fake ones made by idiots.

I totally agree with your post, Xbox 360 will be nothing new except trying to be more of a pc. Ps3 is really the route to go, although Revolution has some nifty features and I will enjoy a lot of the games. Especially the offering of the old classics in a library readily to download.

To top it off, Nintendo has mentioned that previous games that will be in the classic libraries MAY be multiplayer online. WCW Revenge/No Mercy and Goldeneye online=Greatness.

PS3 for sure. Ps2 had the best game out there last year (besides Halo 2) with Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater and they have a much wider array of good games. Xbox just copies every game that playstation drops first.

If all of the graphic and playability caps are equal then you gotta go with PS3. The only real reason that people I know were buying Xbox before is because of Halo and for the faster loading times...

Xbox owned the sports genre, plus it had the best live functionality and I expect it to be better this time around as well.

Do you guys know if Sony will still have the overwhelming majority of third-party support? I though I read somewhere that that may be shifting to XBox.

I liked Tiger Woods, Madden, and Live better for PS2. I can manipulate a Ps2 controller very unfairly, and its part of what makes me a monster in Madden 05 for ps2.


I've only played online 4 times, but every time the opponent has pulled out before then end of the 3rd quarter after claiming previously that they were unstoppable with a certain team.

Flaps-Xbox claims they have it but Sony has proved they have it. Everything still remains to be seen.

Gringo- Graphics wise though I think Xbox edges it out in sports games, although that isnt the only factor. I do enjoy the controller for sports games it is more spaced out and comfortable.

Most likely, I may get the 360 first. Then the PS3. But it really depends on the launch and holiday offerings of both...

Xbox 360 comes out this fall while Ps3 will hit shelves late spring early summer 2006.

Flaps,

With the supposed ease of programming on the PS3 and the 100gb Blue-ray discs being used, PS3 is currently the way to go. They will have the major thrid-party software support. Unfortunately, it's likely to cost in the $500 range. XBox360 is rumored at $300, but I've read articles speculating a $400 price tag.

Sony seems to have planned for the future with their new machine, which is why they aren't even thinking about a holiday 2005 release. As someone mentioned above, Microsoft seemed to go the direction of just creating the next game console.

We will have to see when this fall comes around.

From what I know currently, I'd get the PS3 and a different controller than the PS3 controller (the batman boomerang thing). Its guaranteed that the PS3 will be backwards compatible where it still isn't certain on the Xbox (to my knowledge).

Playstation will get the most support too I think. For one, they've got every GTA game on lockdown for exclusive rights for so long before releasing the same game on other formats. Blu-ray doesn't really matter. If Xbox doesn't go with Blu-ray, they'll probably go with Toshiba's format. Both discs hold like 50 gigs, so whatever.

Xbox didn't have a lot of Xbox exclusive games that I cared enough about. Only game that was Xbox exclusive that I can think of that I wanted is Ninja Gaiden.

I won't be buying any of the new systems until a game I actually HAVE to have for them comes out. Otherwise, what is the point? Like I probably will want both the Scarface and Godfather games, but I'm not dying to have them. But say Victorious Boxers 3 came out, especially if it were a US release, I'd just have to get it for whichever system had it, which would almost definitely be PS3.

I still have a lot more faith in Sony PS3 than I do Xbox 360. I think both will be successful, but Sony will win easily. It should be closer this time, but not a great deal closer.

I definately wont get any of the new consoles until a price drop comes. Im not a big game fanatic now anyways especially since I play a lot of older titles instead of new ones anyhow. Also each system will most likely come out at $399.99 Microsoft has teased that and Sony has said that it will cost what Ps2 costed when it came out. Plus $59.99 for a game is F'N ridiculous and if I pay for that I better get blowjobs from it.

The only console I will buy when it comes out at launch will be the Revolution, the $199.99 price tag cant be beat and will probably stick for a while. Plus it offers a lot more features that are to my taste (as they will have whole Nintendo library available for download)

ill prob end up savin and tradin 4 all 3...however the one which excites me most is the revolution. backwards compatible with zelda titles. online smash brothers. goldeneye. i always preferred sega and nintendo to playstation and xbox as they aim their consoles at the games not the specs. my favoutite consoles were the dreamcast and the megadrive. shenmue was the greatest game series ever. too bad it was never finished
