Gears of war was a decent game just like Resistance, Bioshock is top quality.

Guess it's all in the opinion boat again.

For me Gears and Bio are on a similar level...IGN (US) gave Bio a .3 higher score than Gears where IGN (AU) scored them the same.

That's about where I sit. Excellent games both.

Guys, please

I am not buying a console to play just one game or one particular genre.

There are many other considerations since I am not big-time into consoles like I used to be.

Seven pages long! Man I'm late, but just to add.

I own both Consoles, I'm not a huge console gamer, but most of my console gaming is done on my 360. Best games so far, simple. Although I think the PS3 is a better console in terms of build quality, potential, media playback and customisation (Ability to run Linux opens many doors). It also Folds@Home right out of the box and for me it opened up the entire PS2 library as I never owned a PS2.

All in all I couldn't see myself with only one of the two right now. BUT if I had to choose, I'd take my 360. Couldn't go without Gears, Crackdown and Saint's Row.

The questions you need to ask yourself:
-Am I interested specifically in one game?
-Am I interested in titles on the market right now, or am I willing to wait?
-Do I want to play backward compatible titles or just the new ones?

From there you can decide by the kind of games you want, or the major titles you want, and by which extras each console has, what suits you the best.

For me, I still play a lot of world of warcraft

Gears is terrible... I got suckered into buying that and all it was was good visuals and about 4 hours of gameplay... I will give you Dead Rising... that is a very good game. But for me.. PS3 with Resistance, Warhawk, and Super Stardust HD is where it is at... of course I can't play my 360 at the moment because of its brokenness (which Microsoft FINALLY got me a box on Monday... amazing).

[sarcastic retort]
Resistance sucks donky ass... I didn't even buy the thing, but because Mr. Hunt hates 360 games and likes PS3 games it has to be bad.[/sarcastic retort]

See how easy it is to do the same thing against those on the other side of the fence? Easy peasy.

Condemned was excellent, especially for a launch title. Don't think it has been mentioned yet.

It's not exactly my taste in games, but Saints Row is another.

Yep liked Condemed too.

Anyway...enough derailing the thread for me!

Keep in mind the PS3 looks twice as sexy as the 360.
Now I can totally agree with you there...the PS3 is bringing sexy back
