Holy shit this helps out a ton! I'm getting tons of good info and from my own research on game titles, 360 is superior than PS3. As far as the 'red ring of death'...I have no idea what you guys are talking about. Something that goes wrong with the system due to overheating??? Do I need another fan for it if I buy the elite??
As far as shooters...let me know of some new and older titles that are a must to buy or try out. I love blood, guts, war, and 'splosions! Dont forget swearing!
Thanks guys, I am totally goin out this week and buying an Elite with a warranty, possible potional extra fan, and a few games. Do I need a remote charger too?
Thanks again for all the help...spit out some titles that blowing the hell out of stuff or others is the main feature!

My 360 has never needed to be fixed at all. I have no prob with it. Good games and good online. ps3s are great too, in my opinion. Blue-ray plus online plus variety of games is a good combo. Wii's are fun too. I own all 3 and my personal favorite is 360. Online is so much better for it, although now I can watch 300 on a blue-ray.

If you get a fan you mite want to get the one that plugs into the wall because there have been reports that the fans that just plug in to the 360 draw so much more power and cause overheating aswell. but i havnt had any problems.

Save the cash and build a gaming PC. You can get a combo on Ebay pretty cheap these days.

It died in 2004, It is survived by it's two son's Xbox 360 and PS3.
The only thing consoles can not do is strategy.

If you can still find one, the best deal out there was the limited-edition Resident Evil 5 Red Xbox 360 Elite. You got an elite Xbox 360 system with the newest chipset (greatly reduces the chance of RROD), with a play-n-charge controller, and RE 5 for $500.
Online is a must for most games; CoD, GoW, Halo, etc. Plus, I use Netflix on mine and love it, as well as download classic games.

I've had my 360 for a year now and I've had no problems out of mine yet *knocks on wood*. The ONLY one reason why I would ever consider buying a PS3 is for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots since I am a huge Metal Gear Solid fan. However, I don't see paying that much for a system that I would only play one game on, so that is why I went with the 360. Plus, if you own a 360, and you like to play the wrestling games such as Smackdown vs Raw and Legends of Wrestlemania, you get twice the layers for CAWs to work with than the PS3 game.

I just bought a Wii and love it. This is a fun system and its geared towards women, kids, and casual gamers who want simple yet fun games. The key with the wii is the controller! It makes for a much more interactive experience. Was playing boxing today and you are actually moving and punching like a boxer. Wii unfortunately is not a DVD player and does not go past 480P. It does have bluetooth wireless so you can surf the net. if you like the mario games, punch out, legend of zelda, or want to entertain with a system that everyone can play than you will like this system.
I also have an Xbox 360. The harddrive the superior chips allowing HD is huge. Xbox 360 graphics are the best. This machine also has a DVD player which is quite useful. If you like sport games, or games like resident evil 5 thats the way to go.
Call of duty world at war is awesome on this system.
the 360 also has xbox live where you can download more contents for the games that you buy which make it quite cool as well.
As far as the ring of death, I am unsure about this, what exactly is this, and how is this caused?
As for PS3 I don't know much about it. If you like Blue ray movies than it does come with a free player. I don't know where else it really trumps xbox 360, anyone else have any ideas.
Whereas the Wii caters to a certain demographic and gamer the Xbox and PS3 are competing for the hardcore gamers and it looks like xbox 360 is doing much better....except in Japan.

John Carmack of ID software said they had to make compromises to 360 RAGE to get it to fit on the DVD.
To the OP: Guess you're mind's been made up with the Microsoft system, but I'd prefer the PS3 any day. The exclusives coming this year alone make it a console worth having in my opinion but to each his own.
Hope your purchase lasts. My sister's 360 made a noise like a jet engine and bricked twice. She eventually gave up and went for the PS3 (after sampling mine) and loves it. I certainly don't consider the 360 "superior" to Sony's console either. It had a year head start, is supposedly easier to code for yet I still haven't seen a game that looks as good as KILLZONE 2, MGS4 or GT5P.
