No, wait until the next consoles come, and save up some cash for that.
You're a little late for an xbox 360 or PS3.

Why should we have to decide?
Check exclusives, make your own decision.
Don't rely on which console happens to have more fanboys browsing here.


That was a great post. Right Zach?

They both have their ups and downs, so it depends on what kind of games you like and what kind of services you want. Name some games you like and I can probably make a good recommendation. I have both, so I know what's good and bad with each system.

Xbox 360 has Halo and Gears of War. Most new games coming out are on Kinect. I don't know if anything unrelated to the Kinect is coming out, so you may need to do some lurking.
PS3 has Warhawk and Uncharted. Sony is currently more focused on the handheld market, so only Twisted Metal and Starhawk are coming out for PS3. There's other exclusives, but they probably won't interest you as much. PS3 also has the PSmove, which is a remote that works similar to the Wii remote.

If you had a PS2, then you'll want to go with a PS3. Simple as that.

Hmmm... honestly? Consider this:

1) Which joystick would you prefer? For example, I love fighters, and the X360 controller is not the best fit(As a matter of fact, the best fit is an arcade stick, but I digress).
2) How badly do you want to play Skyrim? As of now, the PS3 version is suffering some serious lag problems once your savefile goes over 5 mbs. Which makes me sad, and there probably won't be a solution, just like previous Bethesda games on the Ps3.(Or you could get an SSD and swap out the PS3's HD, it works wonders).
3) Exclusives. Infamous, or Crackdown? Uncharted or Alan Wake? Gears of War or God of War?... however I think this is, in this day an age, the least important consideration. Let's face it, most games are multiplataform.

I have a Wii, but you've probably never heard of it, it was made by a pretty underground company.

5 solutions if your split like me:
1) buy a PC and wait for emulators and be able to play the ports that already exist
2) Buy a 360 if you like Halo or CoD and have frequent sleepovers. It's good for that.
3) PS3 if you want a little more power under the hood and you want to mod Unreal Tournament 3 or just want a bit more versatile platform.
4) Buy a Wii if your not a hardcore gamer and just want to play SSB with friends and host slightly larger parties.
5) Save up and choose all for options

Personally, I'd take option #1. You can already emulate SSB:M very well on it for example. And I'd hope they port the other halo's eventually. Spend little over a grand on a (desktop) pc and your good as far as performance goes, assuming you've already got a display. Spend an extra $50 and you can get a device that can hook up all your consoles and cable box to your monitor.

But if you really want a console, I suggest you wait as well. Considering the tech that's been coming out recently, I'd say wait. In maybe a year, the money you could spend now could be spent on hardware that can do this in real time.

I'd get a PS3, but that's because it's got tons of great exclusive third person platformers, and that's my favorite genre.

I own both systems (As well as a Wii and a gaming PC... and a couple handhelds), and this is how I break it down, and keep in mind, some of this will be opinion, not fact, I will also be disregarding the community of each in my breakdown, but I will say here that in my personal experience, the online community on the PSN is slightly more mature... I.E. less kids screaming in my ear. I'm also leaving out the system's capabilities, because for the most part, neither system really out does the other consistently:

PS3:
+ More exclusives/larger variety of game types
+ Free online multiplayer with the option to get premium services beyond that
+ Less prone to breakage (RROD anyone? I'm on my 5th xbox... 1st PS3)
+ Built in Wireless
+ Built in Blu-ray player
+ PSN charges you what the download you're buying is worth instead of forcing you to buy extra "points" to download something.

- No detachable harddrive
- Controller is a little outdated and uncomfortable
- PSN (Playstation Network) more prone to downtime
- A lot of "sleeper hits" that can be difficult to get your hands on

XBox 360:
+ Detachable Harddrive, allowing you to bring your saves over to a friends place without having to bring the console
+ More stable online service
+ More comfortable controllers
+ Much faster updates to both games and system

- Forced to pay subscription for online play and other game services
- Console poorly built, more prone to break down
- Less game variety/exclusives
- Forced to buy ridiculously overpriced adapter should you want wireless
- No Blu-Ray
- Forced to buy more points than you need to buy games/content (I.E. X Game costs 560 MS Points, 1000 points is the lowest amount available that will allow you to buy it unless you have points left over from a previous transaction)

And there's no doubt more that I'm forgetting for each... but there it is. The above pretty well explains my experience with both systems. And just as a disclaimer, I owned a 360 long before I ever bought a PS3, and by no means do I go all fanboy over one system or the other...
However... In my personal opinion, the PS3 is the over all better deal. I do still use my 360 a fair bit (Mostly for Forza), but I've found a lot more that caters to my personal preferences in the PS3, both in games and online services, all other points aside.

All that said, again, this is my experience with the two systems, which happens to be in favor of the PS3. But it's really up to you to make the final decision.
It's hard to say from your choice of examples as for games you enjoy as most of those are on both systems in one form or another, and the wide range of genres can be satisfied by either system as well. Although I will admit the 360 seems more focused on the action/FPS crowd than anything else. Whereas the PS3 has a bit of everything, and has a lot more unique, original games (For better or worse) but isn't necessarily focused on any one area. Not to the extent that the 360 is anyways.

Awesome you bumped a thread that is almost a year old just to say this and add no real input on the discussion.

Here is my view as I own both consoles.

360:
Pros: Cross game chat, Its own unique selection of games(Every console has these)
Cons: Pay for online services, some games get hacked easily (NBA 2k11 crew mode for example and I heard new CoD games had problems too)

PS3
Pros: Free online, probably a larger selection of exclusives, PS+ is optional and gives you a bunch of stuff for about the same price as xbox live
Cons: No cross game chat, (Thats all I got im newer to the PS3 so I don't know all the ins and outs of whats good and bad about it yet.)

WII U!

Just kidding. I thought about getting either one as well, but it's nearing the end of the current console generation. Although I'm a cheap asshole and I probably wouldn't want to spend full price on the new gen consoles.

But I would say PS3.

I've spent thousands of hours playing on an xbox 360, and hundreds of hours playing on a computer, I must say I've had far more fun on the xbox

Just to add onto my post from earlier I agree with what some of these people are saying. You should just wait for the next generation of consoles really. Personally I am starting out with the Wii U and I plan to stay with Nintendo until a tales game winds up getting released on the next xbox or PS4.

I never saw him mention the word PC or computer in his post.
