What should I get? (Xbox360/PS3)?


I had a PS3 but my brother took it because he moved out. What should I get for Christmas? I was planning on getting Black Ops and another controller, but now the PS3 is gone. Should I just get a 360 with Black Ops or another PS3? I love the PS3 but I’ve never had a 360. And I love Halo. But the 360 malfunctions a lot, I hear. So I was just gonna get the PS3 but it’s pretty expensive and I only have $50. My parents are willing to pay for the rest since it’s Christmas, but $310 might be a little much. Help?!

  1. ps 3 slim is better. Because its have more graphics and more free online games.

    PS3 Slim Pros:

    – More affordable $299 price;

    – slimmer, more compact design with quieter operation;

    – all games in high-definition; easy-to-use interface;

    – doubles as a Blu-ray and upscaling DVD player;

    – built-in Wi-Fi;

    – HDMI output with 1080p support;

    – built-in Web browser; free online gaming service.

    Ps3 Slim Cons:

    – Lacks backward support for PS2 games;

    – no infrared port means non-Bluetooth universal remotes aren’t compatible;

    – online gaming, media, and commerce options still aren’t as fully developed as Xbox Live, though they’re getting better.

  2. Both systems are great. I think the PS3 is better because of the free online services, blue-ray player and the exclusive games. The 4gb xbox 360 is good for $199.99 but it will cost you for live. With the newer model I dont think the 360 will malfunction a lot. For $299.99 you can get a 250gb 360 and for $299.99 you can get 160gb ps3. It can also depend on what systems your friends have because online is a lot of fun on both systems. i would say go for the PS3 because you already know what the systems like and what to expect

  3. I have both and both are kinda the same. Unfortunately I bought my 360 before the new one came out but i havent had any problems with it so far. For a 360, you have to pay to play online but there might b some dlc exclusively for 360 because of that. On the other hand with a ps3 you get to play for free (for now) and you get a blu ray player but you might have to wait a while to some dlc.

  4. you might want a 4gb 360 if youre not willing to pay as much. Ive never had any problems with my xbox, it was made about a year ago, and i would say the new xboxs are better. it just depends what games you want to play so probably do some quick research before christmas to find out what system has the games you want

    you should probably get it quick before the christmas mob doesnt wipe out all the ps3/360s if they havent already
