good choice, if you buy a fresh one it should'nt have the red ring problem, alot more games to choose from, arcade DL's, superior online gaming, you'll love it. peace.

horrible mistake my man.......enjoy your journey of many '3 rings of deaths' and getting that shyt repaired.......although I never have owned one but played it many times so I guess if Freddy says you'll evade that lil issue then I guess you're in the clear, though I'm still not convinced; heard too many horror stories with that system...


come back to the winning team my friend.....choose wisely! haha

The wisest choice right now is the 360...ain't got 400 bucks too waste right now on a ps3, and besides i also get a 3 year warranty i think.

i have inside info my niggas so get at me with kwestions and shit!!! for my europe and aussie niggas as well but it takes a little longer since im in the us.

He's right about the 3 years though, but that might only be in some countries.

You've got to remember, you're buying a product that you'll be using for a couple of years, you shouldn't be cheap on that. Maybe someone can borrow you some money or just wait a few weeks till you get the money.

Also in my situation I would've had to pay a lot of extra's if i would've bought a 360:

Battery packs, wireless internet, Hard Drive (if you get the cheapest xbox) and ofcourse xbox live.

If you feel better about getting a 360 you should ofcourse do that but in my case the PS3 was a better option.

I think you right, i'l just give it bout a week to see what happens. i really don't want a 360, but if i don't get enough money to buy a ps3, i might just settle for a 360.

Yea, don't force yourself to get a 360 cause you want GTA4 the first week it's out. Since Blu-Ray won the format wars, PS3 is a strong choice. Saying it's expensive is somewhat untrue. Regular Blu-Ray plays are still going for ~$300 still, without a HD and internet and gaming. PS3 is cheap is you calculate the worth of the hardware. And there is no epidemic of PS3 failures going around so you're in the clear.

360 Has more games and most of the games have been ported to ps3. PS3 had a price drop recently if you want the 40gb. Try to find a refurbished 60gb since its backwards compatibility.

60 gig
+slightly better PS2 compatibly.
+You can buy it now

80 gig if you preorder it with MGS4.
+Brand New
+Dual Shock 3
+20 extra gigs
+MGS4
+1 year warrenty

I don't think i'ma get the 360 anymore, i'l just wait one more month to get a ps3. I'l prolly have enough money by then, and who knows, the ps3 might have its price dropped.

If you get a rrod within the next three years, Microsoft will fix it for free and I heard they're pretty fast with it too.

I am in the same boat as you...

I own Wii and I love it.

But I need a "Console" and I am definatly gonna bu a PS3...very soon
I never have warmed to the XBOX 360
The contols are too complicated for me.
And I know where I'm at with a PS3.
Played both and for me the PS3 is far superior.
