I'll go with the PS3 if I were you. Well...I already have a PS3. And seeing my other friends' Xbox360 fail, I laugh at them haha. I'll write down a list on why and why not you should have a PS3. I don't really know about the 360 though, I really wanted it at first, but the 33% success rate made me think about it, and I'm not a fan of FPSs so I'll just grieve over those RPGs on the 360 that I will not be able to play. But then it all comes down to your decision. Reasons why PS3 is better: 1.The Cell Processor is powerful, and promises more good games when that power is harnessed. 2.The PS3 has blu-ray, so other than being a blu-ray player it opens ways to create games that needed the juice. Look at MGS4 3.The hard drive can be easily upgraded, as any 2.5 SATA drive will do 4.Exclusives on the PS3 are on the rise, so if you will do decisions now, it's the best time to get PS3. 5.The PS3 is a computer. So if you're interested in using Linux you can use PS3 for it's power. 6.The PS3's structure is cool, it may be large but everything is inside. It's not loud. And it looks sleek standing up or lying horizontally. 7.The PS3 is the most future-proof blu-ray and gaming system on the market today, and it will probably last up to 8 years. 8.The PS3's failure rate is 0.02%, compared to the 22-33% failure rate of the 360(oooops, sorry for that comment above, I meant failure rate not success rate). 9.Free online services, and playstation home. Reasons why PS3 is hated: 1.The PS3's release is delayed to make it future proof, therefore all of its competitors grabbed the opportunity and produced so much games that it'll make you think that PS3 has no games. 2.The PS3's blu-ray drive is still 1x, so it's slow. 3.The PS3's graphics card, as many other people say, is a bit weaker than that of the 360. For me ATI is better than nVidia, even for the computers.(but that's for me) 4.The games are a bit pricey(but then the protection, man I can tell you our CDs have no scratches on it, and my younger brother usually leave it out of the case!) 5.Few exclusives(a problem time can deal with) 6.Poor ratings of free online services(a problem that time can also deal with) 7.Exclusives for the PS3 being non-exclusives due to the "market" of 360, bringing the potential of other "should-have-been" exclusives a poor one. 8.The PS3 has no games.(yeah right) 9.The PS3 is a bit more expensive than the 360. Ok that's all. It's yours to decide on.

Of course why would sony extend warranty if they fail less? Anyways that's just one of my reasons. My main reason to suggest getting the PS3 is that it's future-proof. And if all else fails, you still get a decent blu-ray player.

I would go with an xbox 360. The online is great. I know the ps3 is coming out with free online but with the 360 you are getting quallity. Also I believe that the 360 has more exclusive titles than any other system. There is also a whole slew of other great things coming this fall.

I personally think that the X BOX 360 is better than the PS3 . I think so because the graphics of X BOX 360 is out of the world and amazing . It is mind blowing to say the least . The gaming controls are very similar in both but the visualisation is better in X BOX 360. A recent news program also took a survey and found the X BOX 360 to be more popular.

well since PC isn't one of the choices i would go with the playstation 3. even though xbox 360 has halo 3, in my opinion its not that great. PS3 has better graphics, same games at the 360 and on top of all that u get free internet! you can surf the web, get on aim, play online and do whatever just like a computer as long as you haev a wireless router. =]

its completely your own preferences m8. If you prefer good graphics and a fast processor then go for the ps3. If you are wanting to have more relaxed fun with a better range of games, then the xbox is better. I own both and i usually play on my xbox more.
