whether one should buy xbox 360 pro or sony playstation 3?



  1. ps3. you dont want to have to worry about paying for internet, batteries for controllers, buying a seperate bluray player, buying a wifi adaptor, and/or red ring(s) of death(s). i managed to get 3 rrod 360s b4 switching to ps3. i like it better. enjoy

  2. If I were you I would buy PS3 just for one reason and one reason alone.PS3 Supports KillZone 2.Enough Said.

  3. The Pro isn’t being sold anymore. It’s only the Arcade and Elite.

    Get the PS3. It’s far better in the long run:

    Better life span


    Upconverts DVDs to HD

    Better games

    Free online

  4. This is all based on heavy research and factual statistics.

    A PlayStation 3 would be highly recommended.

    Some of the best reasons:

    ~Price – For $300, you get everything you need in a console. It has Bluetooth, built-in WiFi, free online service, Netflix, Life with PlayStation, PS Home and more for just that one admission tag of $300. All of those named above and much more is available for no extra cost.

    ~Reliability – Under 10% compared to the above 33% and possibly 54% (estimation) on the 360, you won’t have to worry too much about your PS3 breaking. As for all Xbox 360 models, every model is able to get RROD. Even the Elite.

    ~Power – Obviously when you hear about powerful hardware, you always hear about the PlayStation 3. From it’s Blu-Ray and Cell to the graphics of exclusive titles and the power to help in the process of curing cancer (yes, curing cancer), the PS3 is praised for it’s technical breakthroughs between video games and shear power of latest tech. If you’re looking for a powerful system, look no further.

    ~Life Cycle – It will last you longer than any console you have right now. Launched in 2006, the PS3 will go on well past next year and into 2016 and beyond. The Wii is expected to get dumped for a new Nintendo console by 2011 at least, while the new Microsoft console is also expected for 2011.

    ~Online Service – PlayStation Network. It’s free, it’s fun, it’s lag-free and it constantly grows. When signing up, you get treated to PlayStation Home, free demos and videos, movies, TV Shows, music, Netflix and more. PSN runs on dedicated servers, which gives gamers an almost entirely lag-free experience. Only downside is that the developers choose when they want to bring their servers down. The best thing about this is that you won’t be missing an features that require internet (Facebook, Netflix, etc.) just because you aren’t registered. Plus, if you say you don’t want to play online, there is always a chance to try it out, and when you finally decide to, it’s there for you free! Oh, and it will ALWAYS BE FREE! Don’t listen to the rumors. Sony had plans to release an optional subscription based service with extras, but it’s completely optional.

    ~Games – The PS3 now has the highest rated exclusive game of all time (Uncharted 2: Among Thieves). Other AAA titles/franchises include:

    Metal Gear Solid 4




    Heavy Rain

    Gran Turismo

    God of War

    Final Fantasy

    MAG (256 players in one map. war game at it’s finest)

    Killzone 2


    Ratchet & Clank


    MLB: The Show

    Heavenly Sword

    as well as upcoming titles. Those games up there are just some that I would recommend to you. Very well worth it. By the way, the “360 games are cheaper” gag is false. GAMES ARE NOT CHEAPER ON THE 360! New games on both consoles go for $60, end of story.

    If this was 2006-2007, I would tell you to get an Xbox 360. It is now 2010, and the PlayStation 3 is a whole new beast.

    For $300, you get things built into your system that the Xbox 360 would cost more for. It costs more to maintain and enhance your 360 experience, and the games feel slightly outdated in this day and age. I paid $300 for my 360, $100 for the WiFi, $50 Xbox Live card and 2 extra packs of AA batteries. and then it broke =(

    Blu-Ray is not on the Xbox 360, so if you ever want to watch a Blu-Ray movie, it would cost you a whole different standalone product, unless you get the PlayStation 3.

    Uncharted 2 is praised as being the best looking game on any platform to date. Recently, it became the highest rated exclusive game of all time, with a 97% metacritic score (Yes, that’s above Halo and Mario) and a record-breaking 40 Game of the Year awards. For comparison’s sake, the second most GOTY awards was given to Modern Warfare 2. it won 6. Many more games will be released both exclusively and multiplatform for the system well after both the Xbox 360 and Wii are gone.

    If you like taking trips to the past, PlayStation 1 (and soon PS2 & Dreamcast) games are accessible through the PlayStation Store.

    $60 would buy you a game with all it’s features on the PS3. On the 360, you would have to give Microsoft an extra $50 annually for the privilege to use that game to it’s full potential.

    If you try to get an Xbox 360 Arcade, it would be useless. Those $200 you get will give you nothing but an empty console. No HDD, which is extremely important in this day and age. No bluetooth, no WiFi (100Ft. Cable), no instant and free online service, high failure rate and no Blu-Ray, ever.

    You have to remember that the $300 console you want once used to cost $600! Half the price for essentially the same console? Steal of the century.
