The newer ones seem to be decent with the Falcon, but then you have to be forceful and picky towards the guys in whatever store you buy one to make sure your getting the right thing.

I'm making a switch over to the ps3, which is funny because i was an xbox fan, i went for the original xbox over the ps2, and i fought tooth and nail for a 360 at launch.

My 360 is dying on me though so i'm keeping it alive as long as i can for gears 2 and ninja gaiden, after that...meh.

another totally justified, fair, and balanced opinion from S.I.N.



here, let me repost the one post that made the most sense in this thread:

360 has just as many exclusives coming up as the ps3, by the end of the year they should both have quite nice libraries underneath them. the real question you should be asking yourself is: is the loss switching everything over to ps3 worth a few different exclusives and bd capabilities? hell, you could take a fraction of the loses you are about to take and buy a standalone bd and then wait for the eminent ps3 pricecuts. that seems like a more important question, as it appears you have your mind made up

No offense, but are you sure your mind wasn't made up? Is there a way to convince you to keep the 360 and not get a ps3?

There have been a few previous posts similar to yours, and even though they ask "should I switch", it has always been a case of "what is the best way to go about switching".

I have a 360 and a PS3. What's the best way to switch between them?

i hear you have to plug your 360 into your PS3 via a secret slot on the bottom. t3h C3LL will then upconvert your 360's output to TrueHD.

Cool. So does that mean I'll get 1080pee on my Suny 12" B&W Toob TeeVee?

he needs to be careful, though. cause im pretty sure crainger says that exact sequence of words at least 50 times a day. i mean you dont want to stream pixels to your brain all day long.
