That or a new console would have been nice.

The whole thing is such a copy and a ripoff of the Wii (minus the controller obviously), it's really pathetic. I don't want to look like a retard in a driving game, k thx.
+1 on the first part, and on the second part... definitely wii rip off games, along with eyetoy rip off.

You know, what I really love about my PS3 is the fact that I can take it anywhere, and all I need are two cables to hook it up. Built-in WiFi, built-in PSU, and I just unpack it, plug it in and it's good to go.

The 360 is such a PITA to move, it's not worth it. There's ethernet cables, specialty A/V cables (they just got HDMI like a year ago), the power brick...

You would think MS would try to copy the PS3 more than they have been copying the Wii.

I say... 5 years for built in wifi finally was awesome... 5 more years and maybe it will have a built in PSU, 10 years and MAYBE they will get Blu-Ray.

I think the 360's name is actually the console's revision number...

What I decided is what I decided. Thank You for Your opinion and help when when I was thinking what to get and sorry to dissapoint You by choosing 360 over ps3.
Decision facilities were offcourse price, exclusives(I am gears of war and Alan wake guy), and Computer display compatibility with easy to get cables and 16:10 resolutions on 360. Now I know that I would have problems connecting display to ps3 (due to not offricial cables) and that I would have streched image. Now I am very happy with my X360 Elite. It looks nice, its quiet and I just like it.

Anyway, its not a problem for this topic too discuss. If You want To talk about 360vsPS3, then Create a thread or something.

You are right. But moving 360 around isnt soo bad. I am often getting it from my room to a living room. Its just a power cable and TV cable. thats all. Ethernet is not a problem for me becouse I am mostly offline.

It's not a power cable, it's a power BRICK. If you play mostly offline then why did you get a 360?

Really the best thing going for the system is the number of players on XBL. Besides that, the PS3 does everything just as well, and has better exclusives...

My two cents.

Didn't hurt my feelings lol. I just think it is hilarious when you and somebody else () starts a thread asking for opinions... then you get everyone's thoughts... and do the exact opposite.

Lol... just a power cable? That would make sense if it had a PSU built in, but it has a HUGE freaking Ghost Busters style brick needed.

ok its an big ass power cable what could I say?

So how did people played games years ago?! When games were concentrated over singleplayer?

I am just a singleplayer person. Thats all. I like playing game and immersing in it like a movie. Not want to frustrate over 12yo kiddos in GTAIV screaming to them "! GET IN THE ****ING CAR A SHOOT YOU LITTLE BITCH" - and only hearing high pich young mustache voice swearing at me..... thats how I spent my free gold membership

Only thing I miss from ps3 is Uncharted. But if I were on ps3 I would miss Gears of War saga which is just incredible in my book. And I like scifi better so I choose 360.



And to Hunt: Its not stupid to ask people for advice and doing something oposite. Still. I just asked for Your opinions etc. And I will do It again when I will have to tie between something

I was just saying that the PS3 has more features on the system itself and many of its exclusives are better (GT, Uncharted, God of War, Metal Gear, etc.). I think the strongest feature of the 360 is XBL.
