I've got both as I managed to pick up a mint condition ps3 for 125.

I use the ps3 for playing videos and watching blu-ray films, it's very quiet.

As far as gaming goes though, the 360 eclipses the ps3 in every way. The PS3 experience is just so disjointed which is something that is apparent to people who know both systems.

I own both and have to say I use the 360 90% of the time. Both are great machines but just prefer the 360.
I mostly play online and I really do find xbox live streets ahead of PSN at moment. Also, on a personal level, I just prefer the 360 pad over the PS3 one ( especially while playing fps's ).

Saying that, my personal GOTY is without doubt Uncharted 2 [ref]. The best game i've played in years[^]

The PS3. Better exclusives, better value, does more, doesn't break all the time, free online play. No brainer really.

The only reason people go for a 360 is so they can play 'backups'. Until MS bans them and they end up crying and attempting to flog their broken console on here.

flaps, all personal opinion but for me the Halo games are great (especially online). Not to mention how still Bungie are streets ahead in terms of supporting them with content and a great site to follow stats and other things if you wanted to.
GOW is also a great exclusive along with Forza, Mass Effect and L4D.

I suppose at the end of the day though i'm fortunate to have both so doesn't bother me about having exclusive content as i can play them anyway [^]

Personally, I don't base my preferences on what the largest group is doing. If I did, I'd be listening to Westlife, watching You Are a Celebrity and eating Mcdonalds.

Regardless, the 360 and PS3 have sold around the same number of consoles worldwide.

flaps, the title of the thread was xbox or ps3?, not xbox or ps3 or pc. When i said exclusive, it was in terms of it was exclusive to 360 which isn't available to the PS3 ( or vice verser).

An exclusive game is one available for one platform only. Regardless of what the thread title might be, to describe a game as exclusive when it is not is incorrect.

Would you describe BBC iPlayer as exclusive to the ps3? Or web browsing? Of course not.

"I don't think you even understand what you've just posted. You clearly can't tolerate it. You can't accept others' views and, in fact, mock them if they don't accord with your own."

An opinion is not valuable simply because it is held. Many opinions are contemptuous - supporting the BNP for example.

Your way of thinking leads to every opinion being as worthwhile as the next, which simply devalues all opinion.

I'm happy for you to enjoy the works of Dan Brown or the latter works of Oasis. Just don't expect me - or anyone with taste for that matter - to think you're demonstrating good judgement.

The online service is free but you get what you pay for.

Better exclusives are a matter of opinion.

Better media playback - in terms of media streaming, I prefer the 360. I don't use it as a Blu Ray player so that isn't something that would tip in its favour.

Better value - again, depends on what you want.

Better build quality - I've had no problems with the build quality of either. However, 360 does tend to have more problems. Having said that, Microsoft deal with such problems very, very well.

PSN is free. Anyone that says they have online problems either has a crap internet connection or is wrong. I've played online for over a year without a problem.

Blu-Ray player, class. search online for a free 90 day lovefilm trial and get blu-rays free for 90 days then cancel it, you pay nothing.

Iplayer, good as tv quality.

Vidzone, go online, create your own playlist of songs, great for parties.

You can connect a external hd to it and watch avi's. you can even stream straight from a pc with media sharing turned on.

PS3 is better just. Only xbox fanboys would disagree.

I do think the xbox is decent, and the last call of duty actually did look slightly better on the xbox, but if you're playing on a decent hd tv, there's not THAT much difference and for me the PS3 has so much more going for it.

Well it should be pointed out that of the two consoles you can only access and post on FMTTM with the Sony Playstation 3.

So just to be clear if anyone rates the 360 ahead of the PS3, the only possible explanation is that they are a 'fanboy'?

I have had no connection problems with PSN at all. However, the online experience just simply isn't as good as it is on the 360.

The overall experience, for me, is better on the 360. the cost is broadly the same.

It's a close run thing, which is why there will be a split of opinion. Some people, of course, don't like that.

i think thats a minor detail though, "the interface"

If the actual playing of games online is similar, the free online play and built in wireless of the ps3 surely sways the decision in its favour?

PSN is better than xbox live because it does the same thing but doesnt cost any money.

As I say, not for me. Wireless doesn't benefit me becasue my PS3 is plugged directly into my router. I find it easier to get games on Live as well.

I can only assume that there was some form of network problem. It was similar to the problems that existed when Live first arrived on xbox.

As I say, I just prefer the 360 but there isn't much in it. You'd have to go out of your way to pick fault with either. As I say, if I was asked to give one of them up it would be the PS3.

Look, it's not for me to say what the problem is. I established that it wasn't my set up and so can only assume that the PSN servers were overloaded or there was some other problem.

Look, if it makes you feel better to believe that the only explanation can be that there is a problem with my set up then that's fine. You believe that and wrap it around you like a comfort blanket.

I own both consoles and have no affiliation to either. I don't care which one is better. They're both good. If I had to be relieved of one though, I'd choose the PS3. Given that you don't own a 360 and are clearly a fanboy of the PS3 I'd say I'm in a much better position to judge.

x box 360 or ps3

I have both, but got the 360 after the PS3. PS3 is now only used for exclusives, everything else I play on the 360.

In terms of online, I prefer the 360. The PS3 used to annoy me that you have no option but to download the latest firmware to play a game whether you want it or not (which can take ages to do). Whether this has changed in the months it's been since I last used it, I don't know. Fair enough you have to pay for it, but to me inviting people to games is a lot easier than the PS3. Again, this may have changed since so it might not be as bad as it originally was.

I'll be getting Uncharted 2, and maybe God of War 3, but won't be bothering with Gran Turismo - I think Forza is better.

"I think the term fanboy was created for Flaps."

Actually if you read through this thread I've described the 360 as 'good'. I've described the games as being identical. My two main themes have been trying to help Adi with his wireless problem, and countering absurd inaccuracies. If having a preference - in common with everyone in this thread - makes me a fanboy then so be it.

I've not claimed that all games are better on the ps3, that the 360 'cant get games' or that the 'gaming experience is miles better on the ps3'. Those are the comments of a fanboy, and all claims made by 360 fanboys in this thread.

I'm sure it is fine for you. As I've already said I'm not just happy, I'm 100% certain. Since it's in my room here and you haven't seen it I'd be very interested to hear all about this evidence that you have.

Keep going though, it's entertaining watching you prove over and over again the point I've been making about you all along.

So you're trying to tell me that no-one else has ever had a problem with PSN? Drivel.

The reason that I can tell you with 100% certainty that I don't have a problem with my set up is that the PS3 is telling me that I don't, I am very experienced and technically capable of setting the thing up and I have double checked everything on the net.

The reason you have a problem accepting it is the same problem you usually have, it contradicts your view.

lol no why would you think I'm telling you that? A few weeks ago I had a DNS problem that prevented me from logging in to the PSN. I got it fixed soon enough though.

What you're describing is an ongoing problem. The PSN has no reported ongoing connectivity issues. You do, therefore the problem - your ongoing problem - is something at your end.

Your technical expertise is clearly formidable - you used the term 'bridge' earlier - but the fact remains that you have a problem and cannot see a way of fixing it.

Nobody is so technically proficient that there isn't some reward from asking for advice. Maybe if you could swallow your pride you could do the same?

Yes, I used the word bridge before and used it absolutely correctly.

Please tell me where I described it as an ongoing problem. It is an occasional annoyance. As I've already described the margins between the two consoles are minimal.

I'll rephrase. What you're telling me is that no-one has had a problem with PSN that isn't of their own making. As I've said, that's drivel.

A minority of people suffer the yellow lights of death on their PS3. No doubt you deny the existence of that known problem as well.

"Please tell me where I described it as an ongoing problem. It is an occasional annoyance."

You said you found it easier getting games on a 360. Which means you find it more difficult getting games on a PS3. In the absence of any more information, you're suggesting something that is ongoing. If you didn't mean to say that, choose your words more carefully.

"What you're telling me is that no-one has had a problem with PSN that isn't of their own making."

No I'm not saying that either. Why do you keep putting words into my mouth? The DNS problem I just described wasn't of my own making.

"No doubt you deny the existence of that known problem as well."

Not at all. All electronics have faulty units. Just the way things are. However, a 1 in 3 failure rate is beyond is considerably worse than most.

Flaps, according to you the PS3 is perfect. A problem occurs and you put that down to all electronic devices having errors. All electronic devices don't have to have errors.

The xbox has red rings. That's a build problem. The PS3 has a yellow light problem, that's a problem with the PS3 put down to how it's built and desinged, nothing to do with all electrical devices having an error.

I do find it easier to get games on the 360. I also find the games to be less laggy. That is fact.

It is one of the reasons (the other are set out above) that I would choose a 360. It just is the better fit for me. The difference though is marginal. Blu ray will tip it for a lot of people.

i find the servers on MW2 on the ps3 to be utter bollox. take ages to match make, boot people out etc - theyre terrible IMO.

but back to the 360 v ps3 debate. i have both - both are superb machines. the ps3 is and will surpass the 360 next year due to the fact that its hardwear is better and more powerful.

most older games look beter on the 360 as the ps3 version is a port from the 360 - and the 360 was lead design console. M$ have shat themselves and lowered the price as they know that people/kids now want the ps3 instead of A)the wii and B) the 360. the ps3 has outsold the wii for past god knows how many months in japan.

360 is quality though as you can get games FOC [8D]
