The PS3 has much less failure rate than the 360. So you'd be better off buying a PS3.

The new 360s have no problems (unlike everyone is saying)

If you get an old system, then they both have problems with overheating. Xbox 360 (RRoD) PS3 (YLoD)

Unlike the PS3, the 360 comes with a 3 year warranty. The PS3 only comes with a 1.

(IMO) You should get a 360 elite.

Even the new 360's fail a lot more than the PS3 and the slim is more reliable than the old PS3.

According to an independent report by the warranty company SquareTrade, the Nintendo Wii is the most reliable of the current generation consoles, while the Xbox 360 remains the console with the highest system failure rate.

After two years of ownership, Wii owners reported only a 2.7 percent failure rate, with the PS3 in the middle at 10 percent, and the 360 at 23.7 percent. Excluding RROD errors, which are covered by a Microsoft warranty for 3 years, the Xbox 360 still had an 11.7 percent failure rate.

The sample size for the study was 16,000 units, but there are some notable facts to note. Most of the Wii failures were due to power issues and most of the non-RROD errors for the Xbox 360 was "Disc Read errors," the same as the PS3. Usage was also a factor, because the Wii, according to Nielsen numbers, is just about half of that of the Xbox 360. The report says the average 360 console is played or used for 1191 minutes per month, followed by the PS3 at 1053 and the Wii lagging way behind at 516.

Perhaps more notably, the report concludes that the new "Jasper" based Xbox 360s, which began shipping in late 2008, have almost completely killed RROD, and SquareTrade expects the failure rate to continue to fall as 2009 continues.

The jasper chip fixed RROD but 23% of 360's still fail with disc read errors.

Just proves that most gamers buy 360s.

Because it was the cheapest option, the 360 is going to get outsold by the PS3 until the next gen.
