Thread: 360 or PS3??

  1. #1

    Default 360 or PS3??

    Right chappers, question time, or more like opinion time.

    I'm not much of a gamer to be honest, dont have anything like the time, but I am getting a new phone and can get a Wii, XBOX 360 or PS3 as a free gift.

    I've got a Wii in the house already for the wee man, so its down to the 360 or the PS3. I dont really have anything like the spare cash to go out buying all the new games and stuff so the most important questions are as follows.

    Can you pick up cheap games for these machines in Gamestation or the likes? Is there a way to chip either of these machines to play copies? Now the Barras is closed, where would you get copies anyway?

    I dont need to take any of them, but if its coming for free I'd be a mug to knock it back correct? But I dont want stuck with something that I cant afford games for !!!

    it depends on what games you want to play / what you want to do with it (i.e.watch hd movies?)

    games are generally cheaper on the xbox

    To be brutally honest, I'm not really that into any specific type of game. I still fart about with my PS2 playing Gran Turismo, thats about it, when I'm not playing the Wii with the wee man.

    I was thinking the 360 might be the way to go, cause I am not really into online gaming or any of that, and I think the PS3 is more geared towards that.

    If youŽre not into online gaming and loves to play GT you might be better off with the PS3 although the XBox also has great racing games like Project Gotham Racing, Forza and many more. YouŽll be online with the xbox though if connected and you will also be able to download/purchase stuff online. Everything minus the online gaming. And xbox is cheaper than ps3

    Are you looking to play the console online? If you are, check if your mates play online and get what they have, its much better playing online with your friends.

    Although it costs a good bit to get online for the xbox, paying for the "live" and Wireless adaptor if your going wireless. Where as PS3 is free online and easy to set up, it also has a wireless adaptor built in. Bluray is also on the PS3!

    For casual gaming, the 360 is hard to beat mate, you can pick up bargain games even without a chip aswel, i picked some up from Game for a fiver a pop.

    Btw, what sort of kick ass phone are you getting to get a free console!?

    You can get dirt cheap 360 games off playtrade

    I just got Far Cry 2 and LEGO Indiana Jones for Ł14.65
    I'm raising money for the Multiple Sclerosis Trust. Any donations would be really sound and much appreciated!

    If you want to turn into one of these freaks , buy the Xbox. If you want to be normal buy the ps3. The choice is yours
