PS3 or XBOX360?




Hey TQForum,
Whats happening? I've made this thread to ask what you guys think I should get a PS3 or XBOX360? I have a Wii and apparently there is nothing coming out for it. I had the Wii for about 1 1/2 years now and I regret my choice of console. I could have gotten an PS3 or XBOX 360 but I'm all the way over in South America and everything is overpriced. So I'm coming to visit in March and I wanted to get a new console so guys I need some suggestions .

PS3 all the way, man! Kosamus' list is very well done and good to follow. In my opinion, you will get more out of the PS3 then the 360. 360 is a great console as well.

PS3 100%, Manly cause of warranty, the 360 will blow up over time and if you are not buying local it might cause an issue with returns.
PS3 has solid line of game, great online (thats free), region free to import cheap games if they are expensive locally etc.

PS- The games Kosamus highlighted for PS3 with an * nailed it, if i was going to buy a PS3 those are the games i would buy no doubt.
Oh and if you cannot get Fallout 3 cheap get Oblivion GOTY version(made by the same developer) its an olden day setting of Fallout3 that should not be missed IMO is the best RPG ever made and that game alone (once you are into it) will eat up easy 150hrs of gameplay in a blink of the eye.

I'm going to get a PS3 mostly because of Heavy Rain. My brother has had a few 360's and has had nothing but trouble with them. V8SuperCars made a good point about warranty and having to return the console living so far away. So the PS3 might be the way to go in your case.

PS:I'm going to order my PS3 through the TQcast website.

DEFINITELY a PS3, bro! The reasons that the TQfam above mentioned are only 5% of the amazing factors that make a PS3 THE system to own! I love my 360 as well, but dude...........get a PS3 porfavor!

PS3 for one reason, and one reason only. PlayStation Home!

It's the future.

But when it comes to gaming, the PS3 just feels well made, and reliable. My 360 has died on me twice.

If you do decide to buy a PS3, These would be my current picks.

1. God of War Collection
2. Metal Gear Solid 4
3. Little Big Planet
4. Pixel Junk Monsters
5. Killzone 2

Be on the look out for God of War 3 and Heavy Rain.

If you are in to RPG's this year will be big for PS3, you have White Knight Chronicles, Last Rebellion, and Final Fantasy XIII

Thanks Phoenix!

We are here to help with your PS3 experience.

I forgot to mention "Shatter". It's cheap, has great music, incredible addicting game play and good replay value.

You do know about game sharing as well right?

I don't know about anything anymore but I'm sure I'm going to learn really soon. I haven't played games in a couple of years but I catch on really fast.

PS3 is the only way to go, it is more reliable and the console is a multimedia hub, if you really want a 360 to play all the exclusive then amazon from TQ or ebay can provide them at a dirt cheap price, they will eventually die any way so why buy it new?

With all the games on the PSN,Blu-Ray, all the great titles coming out on the PS3, there is now way you cannot get this console first.
PS3 all the way for sure.

@ TQ-Joe I was think about that, I really liked the Halo series and Gears Of War. Since I played Gears 1 and Halo 1 and 2 I've been thinking. My cuz said he is going to get a PS3. Oh well I have until March.

@JvdAmdShdt, I have had my PS3 for two days now and I totally LOVE it. I got my son an Xbox 360 Elite for Christmas and I can't seem to get into it. He likes it though and we've bought him a few games for it. Anyway, I guess it just depends on which console is going to have the games you like the most but from what I hear Playstation is coming out with some really awesome exclusive games. Anyway my choice still stands with the PS3 especially having played it all day and messing around with HOME.

@Phoenix33
Ok, it really does come down on what games I want to play. Thanks for your opinion.
