i still to this day get a kick out of the ps3 fanboys in this forum, many of which attempt to come off as neutral....

anyway, this is all I have to say, thinking back to last gen of how the xbox had "more power" than the ps2 yet everything was ported to the xbox deeming it utter crap (with the exception of a few games). fast forward to this gen, EA (not that I care for them) refuses to put more resources into a ps3 dev team, so you will have crappy sports titles, you will also get more delayed releases, also you will get game like VF5 that will come out months later with online support on 360. the only thing going for it is bluray (whose time seems like it is dwindling as well losing major studio supporters) and then there's folding. or you could fold on your pc while you're playing 360, because hell they had to come up for something to do on the ps3 until games come out.

let's be honest here, mgs4 (general story) seems pretty close to splinter cell (this time around) both are exclusives. so that leaves GT5 for you, as you seem to be into racing. so I guess what it boils down to is, $500 for gt5 and BR and handicapped games, or ~350 with a larger library and more than 2 future AAA titles, along with a system the games were designed to be run on. seems pretty obvious from my standpoint.

these ps3 lovers around here post so much, because a majority of the 360 users are playing games, ask them how they are enjoying biosh... umm GRAW2???? a little late to that party too eh?

...and how exactly is that post neutral in any way. I think your post is most fanboyish yet in this thread.

Don't know what you been reading but most people here were providing proper opinions and feedback. I don't think anyone twisted words and came off fanboyish except for MowTin's... Lyme was just retarded.

Hell I even recommended the X360 over the PS3...

What hypocrisy??? There are more people in this thread saying to get an X360 than a PS3, but all the while pointing out it would be no bad thing if he got a PS3 anyway, as there are still a few games to play now and there will surely be some more worth a look in the future.

PS. My vote would be to get a X360 I think. There really are some fantastic games on it right now and in the immediate future.

Unless you want Blu-Ray, go with the 360 since it has the better games.

Wait what!? MGS4's story seems close to Splinter Cell? Only two future AAA titles? Right.....

I don't see how you can be sorry picking up a 360 right now. On the other hand, I can see how you can be sorry for picking up a PS3. Again as others said, that's now but this holiday season is going to be amazing for the 360, a TON of good games.

As far as MGS4, it's gonna be an 8.5 game... just like the last 3. The only thing making MGS a AAA title is the huge fanbase it has. Even the graphics have been getting worse everytime the game is shown.

I've give points for HDMI, but I can't give points for wifi when the current implementation is unlikely to support the wifi N spec. Given that the 360 through addons offers support for many future addons, does that not count as providing future-proofing in the console?

I actually think the 360 hardware wise should have been the console the PS3 is. A perfect centerpiece for a family or entertainmenmt room but content wise the 360 is more suited for that.
