i never owned an xbox until i got my 360 on the launch 3 years ago. i was loyal to sony and the playstation until i went through 3 ps2's and i realized how crappy a product they build. i will never go back to a sony gaming system. i love my 360. had one minor issue two years ago and it was resolved without any issues from microsoft. i know no one who owns a ps3 and i enjoy playing online with xbox live. granted, i might pay for it, but it's always been my experience that you get what you pay for. i am in no way whatsoever, jealous of anyone with an inferior product, such as the ps3.
My other toy...

I have both a 60gb ps3 and a 360 elite. My 360 just did the same thing, had to call ms cs and talk to Habeib or whatever his name was over there in India. As far as one being better than the other, there really isn't any differancestor in graphics, but the ps3 is more robust

They both have their faults. The 360 has a bad track record with the red lights fiasco (which has been corrected, but there are still a lot of the older models out there so the problem will still persist). The main issue with the PS3 is that it is still way behind when it comes to online gaming (for some reason Sony can't get their act together on that) and from what I have personally seen the PS3 games usually look flatter or are too dark and colorless compared to their 360 counterparts (when comparing a came such as COD4).
The PS3 has an edge because it's a Blu-Ray player. The 360 has an edge because of the online aspect and the 3rd party games are slightly better still.
This is like arguing about Disney or Looney Tunes, Star Wars or Star Trek, the Beatles or the Stones, burgers or hot dogs........it's all subjective and both are good and it's all personal preference.

What is up with you all? Xbox sux. PS3 sux. Jesus, grow the hell up. Everybody gets their panties in a bunch and whines like hoes do their pimps when statements like these are posted. You all need to be b!tch slapped. Why dont PS3 and 360 lovers go to their own separate corners and stay there. You detract from the original intent of the thread.
As for the xbox 360, if you have 3 red rings of death, you should be able to get it fixed for free within the 3 years from MSFT. Everything else is one year warranty i.e. disc drive, etc.

My xbox had the three rings. Microsoft replaced it with a brand new console.

Ugh, I'm trying not to make this a long read. I'll readily admit I know my (360) gaming far better than my Joes.
I have two 360s. My Premium got the RRoD. It was replaced and I purchased an Elite. They both have the same guts (additional heat sinks and solder). I use them heavily to stream content from my three Vista machines. I also program with MS technologies. By all accounts, I look like an MS fanboy, but I'm not. Geek, sure, fanboy, go f*ck yourself.
IMO, PS3 has the superior hardware. When the software catches up to the hardware, I can see it really shining. Unfortunately, it's been my experience, that isn't the case yet. I've recommended PS3s to ppl in the past, but mainly because they were interested in consolidating a Blu-Ray player. I don't know anybody personally who plays online with their PS3. Ironic, too, because a couple of them got me into playing online back in the PC Unreal Tournament days.
It's a Ford/Chevy thing, but my advice (from experience) to those who have/want a 360:
Get a model with a hard drive. With new services like streaming Netflix, copying games to your hard drive so they load faster/quieter (DVD drive doesn't have to spin), Marketplace to download Demos and Downloadable Content (read: additional tracks for Guitar Hero, etc), you definitely want a hard drive if you plan to get the most out of your 'box.
Secondly, it's my opinion (based on experience) that external fans are useless. My Premium that got the RRoD had one attached from day of purchase to day of death. External fans might make your box feel cool to the touch, but they're not getting in deep enough to prevent the real overheating that causes the failure.
Thirdly, it would be beneficial for you to know that the newest configuration of 360s are hitting retail. They have smaller chips which means less heat and less power consumption. Their codename is Jasper and here is how you recognize them.
Fourth, I'd skip the warranty. You're paying for the convenience to take it back to the store. If something's going to go wrong with your 'box that isn't RRoD-related, you'll find it within the first year. RRoD cases are covered by a three year warranty. Yeah, I've hated the few times I've spoken to MS customer service, but I can say that about a lot of companies.
Finally, if you're 25yrs or older, I recommend looking into a website I belong to called 2old2play. I've been with them damn near since the beginning. And there are thousands of us. Sure, there's a smaller niche of PS3, Wii, and PC gamers at the site, but it's primarily 360 gamers. The common story you'll find is that the site has saved most of us from cancelling our LIVE subscription and missing out on some great experiences.
GT's the same, so give a shout-out if I run into anybody online.
