ok hi

Should i buy a Ps3 or new computer i live in nz so a ps3 cost $1300 and a good computer about $2800

All i want to do is play games go on internet surf net go on msn and stuff like that. I no u can go on internet with ps3 but can you download stuff like msn and chat?

i reckon a ps3 cause its escpically mainly made just for games and the computer is made for software like microsoftword internet and games so people who make computer stuff dont just make games like for the ps3

also can u plug the ps3 on to your computer moniter? and have a key board put in?

the only games i would want to play on a computer would probaly be MMORPG like WoW which my computer cant even play cause its **** so do you think ps3 will make MMORPG games?

so it basically a best gaming machine internet i think download stuff and yea

say what u think and correct me if im wrong id like to no if u can download msn and stuff thanks

I think your bests bet is to look at what games are coming out for both platforms.

But PS3 and new graphics card for about 100-150
USD like GeForce 7600GT. Your computer should be fine for WoW with new gfx.

Get the PS3.

Get the ps3 if you know how to install linux, otherwise I'd suggest getting a PC. You can't really compare the two unless you do it from a games perspective, and I assume you want to use your computer for other "work"-related stuff as well, and that's where the pc comes out on top(unless you know how to install linux as I already stated).

Some sites don't work correctly on the ps3 browser and it's pretty slow. Plug-ins are also a problem.

PC. Refer to your other thread where I left some comments about your hardware. Also, you mentioned a 7600GT; I have one and it works greta for all the current games I play.

You cannot put msn on the PS3 unless you put linux on it, and then there is additional work to do.

It is also unlikely that World Of Warcraft will be released for any console in the near future.

I think blizzard specifically said that warcraft will never appear on a console, but I could be wrong.

Hopefully, they'll do a damn lost vikings 3 some day.

and a blackthorne 2.

If MMOs are your thing then just get a PC.

I think the day I choose console over pc will be the end of the world.

PC wil get you further in the long run, its just more versatile.
