XBOX 360! Their graphics are the best, and most of the good blockbuster game titles like Halo 3, Gears of War, and Resistance Fall of Man are exclusively for it!Sure, PS3 may have a USB port for storage but I'll give it it's props for that. Do you still need a memory card for the PS3?

NOW you're talking! I've been waiting for this thread! LOL

Ok. I'm gonna vote PS3 is best on the technology side. I'll concede that XBox360 (due to 1+ year head start) has more in the way of excellent games and exclusive franchises right now.

1. Reliability. XBOX360 has been problematic from the outset. MS has had a hard time keeping up with returns.

2. Build quality. The PS3 is QUIET. It is sleek. The interface has a very "classy" look. The SixaxiS controller is more comfortable in the hand.

3. BLURAY. Worth the $399 entry price alone. This is why PS3 was late, and it's worth it. While the graphics and game complexity are roughly the same between XBOX and PS3 right now, we are going to see more content + better textures out of the PS3 in the long run because the Blu-Ray drive can accommodate 50GB games. The XBOX standard is forever locked into DVD-9 - 9GB. Sure, the Xbox Elite comes with an HD-DVD drive, BUT MS can't start designing games on HD-DVD because they settled on the DVD-9 standard to beat PS3 to market.

4. BLU-RAY AGAIN! The Blu-Ray movies look GREAT on an HD display. BETTER than HD-DVD? Not really. Negligible difference. The point is, you don't have to spend an extra $179 to get a high-def player with the PS3. And at $399, it's the cheapest Blu-Ray player on the market.

5. Playstation Network. Um, it's like, FREE. XBox Live costs $$. Also, Playstation HOME (due out Jan 2k8) is going to sew up the online deal. It's Playstation Network and Second Life all wrapped in 1.

Now, here's the problem. Sony has NOT made up for lost time. By not getting more units to market, they are losing Playstation-exclusive titles. Where's Gran Turismo 5? Metal Gear Solid 4? Those are serious system sellers that Sony hype pre-launch, and they are STILL nowhere to be found. Sony's got the best technology, hands down. But that's not enough. They had the best technology with Beta (vs. VHS), but they lost the war because they did not court the consumer properly. They're still not doing a great job with that. Though the price drop to $399/$499 is a great start right before Christmas.

My 2 cents.

Mack, you're right about the games! Xbox 360 have great games like Gears of War! that games TOUGH! I was on my brother's Xbox for HOURS playing it! Nah, PS3's don't need memory cards, they have a built in hardrive! i had a 60GB PS3 which is the highest memory you can get in the UK!

360 for me man! Excellent games for it and the only good game i've heard of on the PS3 is Resistance. Heavenly Sword is also a good game. Now the one game I'll be waiting for on the PS3 will be Kingdom Hearts 3. I'm tempted to buy one now seeing the price went down. Still not enough good games for it yet. If i get a PS3 for anything else it'll be the Blue Ray capability.

They also lost the exclusive rights to Devil May Cry 4. It's coming out for the 360 as well and is looking excellent!

There's no 80GB model in UK? Sony's all over the place with that. 20. 40. 60. 80. The newest one over here (40, I think) only has 2 USB ports and no CF slots, but does have WiFi. I think it's great that you can upgrade the hardrive with any 1.5-inch SATA laptop drive. Been thinking of upgrading my to 160GB.

Yeah, I still want to play that game so badly! It's about time PS3 has a built in hardrive since the original X-box had it and didn't require memory cards except if you want to bring your data from your games over someone elses house for to their X-BOX. 60 GB's? Thtas how much Dell Dimension computer has? What X360 titles are you looking forward for too this winter?

At this time, you are right, in practical terms: the only reason to get PS3 is for Blu-Ray. The game scene is BLEAK. As I said, I think it will take another year or two before PS3's power and disc capacity begin to outstrip the XBOX hardware. By then you will probably be able to pick one up for less than $299.

Ah you don't have an XBox yet. That's our screen names when we're destroying the noobs on Halo 3. The one name you see when you're on the receiving end from when i club em with the butt of my plasma rifle.

At this current time, the 360 is the winner. More exclusives, the online support is 2nd to none, cheaper, and for all Sony's boasts of power, games on 360 still look better. Compare Rainbow Six: Vegas. Nothing on PS3 has yet matched Gears of War, Ace Combat 6, and Mass Effect. And by the way, none of you want it in Halo 3. I am the Halo Hova. I'll eat you all for breakfast.

Don't forget the fully-utilized HDMI port (1080p *drool*)! The PS3 definitely has my vote for "most potential" -- but Sony was really lazy and assumed they wouldn't need to bring their A-game, and could just cruise to victory on their brand name alone. Now that they've been given a rather harsh reality check, they seem to be getting their house in order, and I think 2008 is going to see Sony bouncing back big-time (Little Big Planet, Killzone 2, Silent Hill 5, MGS4...).

But the 360 is definitely the current Golden Boy. They started out with a pretty good launch, and have been getting steadily better. They aren't using their lead as an excuse to rest on their laurels. Even though I see Sony taking a bigger piece of the pie next year, I think MS is going to give them a real run for their (our) money.... There are going to be a lot of gamers selling blood and eating cat food.

I have to get Ace Combat 6! I'm a huge fan of the franchise as I have Ace Combat 3, 5, and Zero for my PS2. I wonder if they still have the flight stick for the game available. I heard that it was decent as it got an 8.5 review but I have to try it out.

Oh so thats what a gamer tag is. The plasma rifle is my favorite weapon too!LOL! Do you know if they have the red brute plasma rifle in the third one? I liked that one too even though it tends to overheat a little faster than the blue ones.

I hope they also come out with a MechAssault 3 game for the 360! The second one was the bomb and I enjoyed playing the hell out of it! The improved graphics, new mechs, and in-depth story made it all worth the while.
