I have no idea on which to choose. which one would you think to have the better games?ps3 is going to be more costly than the the 360, but maybe there's a reason it's that high. you'll be able to play gta4 and halo3 on the 360. what do you guys think? which to choose?

It all depends on what games you want to play, both consoles have a great selection of exclusives and cross platform games so take a look at those then make a decision. I know the PS3 has:

Resistance Fall of Man
MGS4
Final Fantasy 13
Tekken 6

To name a few, i'm not sure of the 360's selection purely because i've always know I wanted a PS3 and havn't bothered to look at the 360 to be honest, i'm sure someone will be a long to mention the 360's range of games though.

They're both great consoles in their own right though so in the end it all boils down to which games you want to play.

I think it's better to decide nearer the release. After the announcement of gta on both consoles at the same time, I now dunno. But before it was going to be the PS3.

This should also be in gaming chat tounge.gif

Isn't that also coming out for Wii? I could of sworn that they showed some sort of final fantasy game.

Anyway, it seems that the 360 and Wii have won me over this time around. Playststion had lots of details but was late to the market almost 1 year without changing any processing hardware(hardware changes alot in 1 year nowadays)and its very expensive. It also seems that the 360 has games like halo 3, call of duty 2, gears of war, gta 4, crackdown and a whole bunch more games. Plus it seems that ps3 is a two player console icon13.gif while the xbox has 4 ports. Price and the amonut of exclusives is what usually takes the cake for a person, so think over your budget, think over the games you want. And make that decision.

Thats Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for the Wii.

Also the PS3 is capable of supporting 4 players at launch I believe.

Well, I watched Sony's E3 press conference (courtesy of GameSpot), and they said that they should have 200+ titles released by year's end. So, if it's about the games, then chances are you're going to find more you like on the PS3 than with the Xbox 360.

Personaly, I'm going to hold off buying either a 360 of a PS3 for a few months to let prices drop, and get a Nintendo Wii. After watching Nintendo's E3 show, I'm totally psyched about getting that and Redsteel. Haven't been excited about gaming for a long time.

It's all about the games, not the hardware. To be honest, I was a little disappointed in the PS3 at this year's E3. There wasn't anything that particularly grabbed my attention though I suspect I will opt with it anyway as the Playstation consoles tend to host more of my favourite game genres / franchises. Time will tell.

Why isn't the Wii on your list? That is the only console that I am definately getting. It stole my heart at E3. inlove.gif

Its really all about the games.

ps3: 8 days. getaway, gran turismo, metal gear solid 4
xbox 360: Saints row, forza 2, halo 3

although, in reality, if you think it is all about the games, you will find a way to get both, because there will always be good exclusives that it would be a shame to miss because you feel you have to choose between systems.

They only difference between the xbox 360 and ps3 really is availability. the xbox 360s being widely available, the ps3s likely not attainable until early 07.

@Sag: 200+ titles out within a month and a half of launch? not bloody likely. if everybody bought on average 2.5 gamers per console sold, and they got 3 million consoles out there by the holiday season, that would mean 7.5 million titles. 37500 sales average per title. it would anger a lot of developers to have their software ignored in a sea of titles. because of the price of the console, price of next gen games, and the ammount of assholes planning on making a buck off the systems on ebay. after the xbox 360 fiasco, i wouldn't be supprised if half of the ps3s release end up on ebay.

Compelling argument. This topic wasn't to ask your personal opinion, but to list various reasons he would be interested in buying either console. As in, describing the types of games that are slated to release, and advantages either console has over the other.

Good job screwing it up, fanboy.

I would go with the 360 and the Wii for less or the same price as the PS3...thats just me though.

I think the 360 has a lot of good games on it and a lot of big name ones coming out. It's got Call of Duty 2, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fable 2, Halo 3, Gears of War, Call of Duty 3, Crackdown, GTA: IV, FNR3, Quake 4, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (GRAW), Battlefield 2, and more...

PS3 I'm not so sure about. I know it's got MGS4, FF13, Killzone 2, and probably some other games and I don't like any of those titles or I haven't played them (MGS). Heavenly Sword or whatever it's called could be interesting, the chick with the swords chained to her arms like God of War.

Really, I would hold off until 2007, because that year seems to be the year of ownage.
If you really really want it, I'd say get the xbox - mainly because microsoft will have a big price drop just before ps3 launch, I can almost guarantee it.

Im a playstation Fanboy but I do think that Microsoft will have something big planned when PS3 releases.

I am undecided but leaning towards a 360, well for a start the estimated price of the PS3 when converted to the aussie dollar is something like $900 for the 60GB "Pimp" version, this is compared to the current $650 of a Premium Xbox 360 right now! Price isn't the only thing its also the way Sony's E3 appearance was disapointing. That and the only PS3 exclusive title I am interested in is Gran Turismo and even that atm is disapointing as all Sony are doing is showing of GT4 running on PS3 hardware.

Basically I am just gonna sit and watch how things pan out, see how much 360's go down in price as the PS3's release comes closer. It seems the smartest move imo.

Dont know if they said when Vision GT is comming ot, or what ever the name is, but hopefully, not anytime soon, because it would probably be very dissapointing.

But myself, I am going to buy a PS3. The only games that I would buy 360 for are Halo 3, PGR 3, and Forza 2. And Im not a fan of the giant rock you play with.

Sonys games just seem to appeal to me more. Metal Gear Solid 4 beaing my most anticipated right now. MS seemes to deliver better online for thier games, but Sony IMo delivers better games overall. But hopefully they will be improving the online expirience with teh PS3.

From what I see, Vision GT = GT4 + Tourist Trophy + higher res textures + 1080p + more then 6 cars in a race (around 20, hopefully)

well the shots released have only been from early stages of the PS3 dev kits, if from them at all. But hopefully they take some years and put more into it. And some damn online play.

Well, the Wii is coming out after the PS3 so, yeah...
I heard the PS3 can have 8 wireless controllers going at the same time(Here), so it will be a lot easier than those expansion things...

I've gone with the PS3 because I've always been satisfied with Playstation titles, and Xbox really didn't have as many hit games as the PS2 did IMO. The only downside is that the 60 GB PS3 is holysh*texpensive. I still find the 360 very impressive, as I watched COD2 on the 360 on a HD widescreen TV over the weekend. Highly impressed. cool.gif

Ah sh*t you're right. For some reason I thought that it will be a launch title - I guess I was all wrong, since IGN says Q2 2007. So even merrier, dont buy anything in 2006 and wait until 2007.

although, as is the style with gran turismo games. q2 07 means q4 08.

Gran turismo 4 mobile schedualed release, q4 06

News of it being pushed back from last year

QUOTE
Very little has been reported on Gran Turismo 4 Mobile since about a year ago, when Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi stated that the game is in development for release in spring 2005. Obviously, it didn't make that date, but how much longer will consumers have to wait for the game?

I'm with the Wii as well. But out of those two. I'd go with PS3. The only big game I'm interested in on 360 is GTA. And it's gonna be on PS3 as well.

Yeah it's more money, and it will probably change the normal price of video game consoles forever (after this next generation, I can't imagine a console under $200 that isn't sporting a nintendo logo), But it's gonna be the best.

I'll be going with the PS3 probably, because they usually release the games that I like most. If not, then the X360. Definetly not the Wii.

One of the PS3 games I'm really looking forward to is The Getaway. Playing in London with graphics like that should be amazing.
