I sold my Wii last year and I'm looking to get a new gaming system. Vote in the poll. Your vote will help me decide which system to buy!

What kind of games do you want to play?

 

Sports for the most part.

The PS3 has MLB The Show, other than that it doesn't even matter that much to be honest.

I've been disappointed with the sports games for my Xbox360. Think maybe I bought the wrong ones. I have the new Madden and MLB2k8. Getting a hoops game soon and it better be good.

I've heard that a lot of people have mechanical problems with their 360's. Anybody on here have this problem?

It's not as much of a problem with the newer systems.

 

I'm one of the fortunate ones who's never had any problems with mine (knock on wood)

I have the 360 for XBOX Live in order to play Madden, NHL and COD against others but I miss MLB The Show terribly.

 

So which system do you like better? PS3 doesn't have something like Xbox Live?

The new one comes out in March and sounds amazing.

Personally, I'd go PS3. Its multimedia functions are completely unmatched and really should be the central hub of everyone's entertainment center. You wouldn't think you need everything in one spot until you get a PS3. In terms of video games, 360 beats it definitly thus far. But the potential of PS3 is definitly much greater and plus it's got a huge advantage in having its own sports franchises(The Show, for example). The holiday line-up was great for PS3 and it's 2009 one looks even better. Plus you factor in free online gaming and the greatness that is HOME, I think those are deal breakers that go against the 360 and for the PS3.

Thanks for the detailed review. I used to have a PS2, which broke, then I bought a Wii, which I didn't like, and now it's either 360 or PS3.

The Xbox online experience I'd say is larger and better, so that's why I went with the 360. Everyone knows what Xbox Live is and I couldn't even tell ya what the PS3 online experience is called.

It just launched last week. It's called HOME. I don't think it gets larger than a socially interactive MMO that helps you set-up online games. Very cool, very innovative.

I have PS3 and Id say Ps3 is the way to go for the future.

 

The main difference for you will be:

 

PS3 online is free, Xbox is $50.

 

PS3 just launched "home" its like eq for your online persona. You can play bowling and other games against people and its a full online environment. There is a movie theater, mall etc. Not sure what they are going to do with it, but it seems pretty interesting.

 

I think currently XBOX is equal or better then PS3, but in the future PS3 will be the better buy.

I originally bought a 360, and it went bad about after a year or so. I exchanged it for a new one, and then that one went bad. After that I went with the PS3, and have had that for almost a year, and I like it much more than my 360. I enjoy the online play with PS3, and it's a blu ray player too.

If you all care about is sports games, then it really doesn't matter. MLB: The Show, which is generally considered the best baseball game on the market, is exclusive to PS3, but other than that, just about every sports game is available on both consoles. If the PS3's Blu-Ray functionality is appealing to you, go with that. If you're interested in other games, though, I recommend the Xbox 360, as it has more quality exclusives and a more polished overall library at this point in time (partly because it's been out a year longer). The PS3 has been gradually closing that gap, though, so you really can't go wrong with either. I own an Xbox 360 and Wii, and will be picking up a PS3 sometime in the future, as it's killing me not being able to play MGS4.

The $5 a month for Xbox Live isn't really that big of a deal, people always point out that it's $50 for the year, but it's not something you buy all at once. And it's not like you're paying for crap either, XBL is great.

I bought a 360 for Christmas, but I'm waiting til tomorrow to open it up :) I'm one of the few people in the country who has never played XBOX360 OR PS3 yet. Never. Never picked up a controller. So I'm pretty psyched.
