And I also had to return my Xbox360 about 4x, but at least I got two free months of Xbox Live.

im waiting for the BD add-on for the 360 lol.

if i were to get a PS3, it would only be for the BD player and maybe the fact i can install linux on it. i like gaming on my 360 much more.

Hmm...did you buy the 360 Elite? Do you have a HDTV?

I think the Elite and PS3 40Gb cost about the same.

Edit: You do realize that the PS3 is now outselling the 360? http://blogs.pcworld.com/gameon/archives/006491.html
People are buying up 360's because of Blu-ray and eventually they'll have the largest install base.
I predict the PS3 will win the console wars in 2008 and 2009.

I own a PS3 now, as some of its best games are yet to be seen, whereas on the 360, Gears of War pretty much showed you what the 360 is capable of.

But if you don't want a Bluray player but want good graphics, the 360 is the best choice, IMO.
They are BOTH crap. Get a Phantom, IMO.

You really can't go wrong with either platform. If you wanted a console for games, and want those games available now, the 360 stands out. If you wanted a console for games of tomorrow, or blu-ray, the ps3 is the likely candidate.

Now that you have more or less decided to keep your choice in consoles, I'd suggest a few things:
-Connect your 360 to the internet.
-Sign up for at least a xbox live silver membership (the free one).
-Try out a number of playable demo's and xbox live arcade playable demo's.
-Take a browse through the movie/tv rental library.
-Have fun (because that is the point, isn't it).

I'd get a ps3 instead. Between blu-ray (not just for movies but bigger capacity for games) and the fact ps3's don't have like a 16% defective rate attached to them (overblown number but it is HIGH)

Considering the fact most exclusives worthwhile usually fall in sony's lap, overall I'd say ps3.

But 360 is no slouch, I'm just still bitter I went through 5 systems, all of them rings of death, on the 5th I said f*ck it and re-built my pc.

I've had my Phantom since release. Not a problem with it. Hasn't crashed once. No frame rate issues, no nothing. Best console ever.
