I prefer the PS3.My brother had a 360 and it got the red ring(with 2 different fan units on it).The free online play is a major seller for me.I just can't wrap my head around buying a game and having to continue to pay to play.
If you like party games or have kids,the WII is a close second for me.

I like the xbox 360 better, that's probably because i'm an online multiplayer guy. My buddy has the PS3, the online play falls short, but the graphics and durability are outstanding. As far as the xbox breaking... Mine broke twice, but both times I got it back within a week and a half (with something free to boot).

i have both as well. i like the ps3 because it is more of a home entertainment device, it does so many things and does all the hi tech stuff i need it too (DTS HD-MA!!) but the 360 i think is a better gaming system.and im addicted to those friggin achievments!!

This is like the ford and chevy fight. Chevy has the better warranty cause it has too just like the xbox coming with the 3 year warranty. Although they have improved from your xbox getting the ring of death 3/5 to 1/5. For adults PS3 is the way to go. And online HA first you have to pay for it and second there alot more kids on 360 online. I like children and stuff but i played some online games on the 360 and all i could hear was little kids yelling and screaming over the headset. I could prolly count on my one hand how many days i heard kids over the playstation network this past year. And you hear ppl say xbox has way more games well that may be true but who actually is gonna buy all of those games. The games that ppl actually buy and keep for months (top sellers) is dead even no one system has more then another. 360 has SLIGHTLY better graphics ...... AND I STRESS SLIGHTLY. You would have to have 2 55inch plasma tv's next to each other to tell. Your not gonna go to a friends house and say oh i wish i would have got a 360. Sorry for the rant i just hate when xbox owners say its a clear choice cause its not oh yea there is a free blu ray player inside! ;)

I chose the PS3 and I'm glad I did so.

Got the XBOX360 a couple years ago. It's not had any problems and the games are great. I might have thought about buying a PS3 at the time, but the lack of decent games and the price turned me away. Things are turning around for PS3 now, but you're going to miss out on a lot of awesome XBOX360 exclusives now, like Mass Effect 1&2 and Fable 2.

Finally bought a PS3 after scraping enough store credit thru gamestop and selling off my Nintendo consoles. I love it and bought it because of the blu-ray player and its durability/stability (no "red ring of death" possibility).
The graphics are great and the exclusive games are fantastic (Can't wait for God of War 3, and looking forward to getting Uncharted 2). Glad I got it!

The PS3 has it's share of problems. My friend has gotten the YLOD on his 60gb model twice and I even exchanged my first Slim after 3 weeks when it started freezing (though admittedly it could have been the game but better safe than sorry). Then of course there's been all the problems with the last set of updates Recent PS3 updates prompt more complaints of console failures -- Engadget
To be honest it's hard for me to choose between the 2. Both consoles are great. I'm not an online gamer so I can't comment on which is better in that department but most seem to agree the 360 does have better online gaming (but you have to pay for it). The PS3 may be the better bang for the buck (free online gaming, blu-ray etc) but 360 has more games and arguably better exclusives (though they don't have God of War 3) and from talking to friends and other people on the web, most feel the 360 is a better gaming console. But as an entertainment system as a whole most seem to prefer the PS3.
You will address me as COMMANDER!!!

The biggest selling point for PS3 over 360 is the inclusion of a blueray player. The graphics on the 360 are a bit better but it's so slight that you would barely even notice it. Even if you had two identical tvs set up next to eachother, one playing 360 the other ps3.
for me it's all about games and game play. I chose the 360 because there were more games exclusive to 360 than the ps3.
If I want a blueray player I'll buy a blueray player.
also this is the first non-nintendo system i got since the sega genisis. I love the wii, but sometims I just wanna SIT there and play video games.
