    Over the break my house was broken into and among other things, my Xbox 360 was stolen. I know I want another system, but I have the problem of which system to buy.

    Please, convince me.

    oh yeah, I like shooters, rpgs, nhl games, racing, etc.

    360 duh!

    Add me!

    PS3 sucks cause there are only like 2 good games for it, plus the controller is garbadge.


    And well I don't think I even need to say anything about wii. Bad graphics, games, online and everything else.

    you should be able to track down the thief. Did you keep the system's PIN number? If not, the receipt? Did you register the system with Microsoft?

    The majority of games are released for both systems. Both have their exclusives. I have both systems but enjoy the PS3 far more. Gamewise, Uncharted 2 is absolutely amazing. Can't wait for God of War 3 and Final Fantasy 13 (which will be just 1 disk on the PS3 unlike the xbox lol).

    I've got no problem shredding MarioKart64 and Ocarina Of Time right now... me and my dad think it's pretty funny how they left the n64 hahaha

    I've never had a playstation, so I've never tried God Of War or Final Fantasy or anything like that... kind of intriguing.

    I think the only thing i HATE about the PS3 is the fact you cannot play any PS2 or PS games on there... LAME

    The 60 gig PS3 is the only system that is backwards compatible so it will play PS2/PS1 games... but they are fairly hard to find. Mine is 60 gig icon_cool.gif

    Yeah, that's pretty ridiculous about the new SKUs. The good news is that they have achieved "software emulation" (meaning they don't need the Emotion Engine chip that was in the PS2 and was in all the earlier PS3s) so they could potentially add that in in the future as a firmware update.

    My vote is with 360, with built-in Netflix streaming (you have to get a disc in order to do it on PS3--wtf?) and also because of Project Natal (the motion-tracking camera control scheme they've been working on). There's a good chance Microsoft will announce a new Xbox this year though; it's been 5 years since the last, and that's usually the product cycle for systems, though that's definitely been slowing down as the generations have gone on.

    Though if you're apt to "hacking," you can modify a Wii to copy to and play games from a hard drive . .

    360. I am addicted to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.

    And also the older Call of Duty, World at War. Love Nazi Zombies. Forza 4 is amazing as well.

    I've been a big fan of my ps3 for the past year or so.

    That said, I did buy an Xbox360 a few weeks ago and trully have come to enjoy it the most. I love its features and the rich experience you get when interacting with others.

    Stick to the xbox360.

    Looks amazing, but all reviews are saying plays like shit.

    Then again, this *is* a post 6 FF game so what can you expect?

    Exactly. It will still sell well, but doesn't every FF game (exceptions being Crystal Chronicle-style b.s.)?

    I just got a PS3 and love it! I wish I had gotten one sooner. I chose it because of the Blu-Ray capability and because it's a really powerful system. I've been a Nintendo loyalist for so long that it was like a whole new world with all these games out there! The Wii is fun too but there aren't as many games that appeal to adults on it.

    Sorry to hear about your bad luck man. That really sucks.

    It's highly unlikely that Sony will be adding firmware for PS2 backwards compatibility anytime soon. They were hanging their hat on that for awhile with the original PS3 skus, but PS3 sales flopped, anyway. MSFT gave up on the b.c. issue, and are now making some nice coin on the Arcade Hits DDL (Halo, Psychonauts, etc.) Sony will do the same thing, releasing greatest hits on PSN. To offer b.c. would mean a loss of revenue, which Sony cannot afford to do at this time.

    There's no chance that MSFT will announce a new Xbox platform this year or next. The product lifecycle for platforms vary. This generation will see a much longer lifecycle than last, though Nintendo will likely release an upgraded Wii to better compete with Sony and MSFT. Wii sales are steadily on the decline (Dec.09 sales weren't bad, but third-party software sales continue to suck for Wii).

    And please don't mod your systems, guys. Piracy is bad for the industry, especially right now. It's theft. Plain and simple.

    Hmmm, if you haven't got a blu-ray player, i'd say go with the PS3. It's weird because the 360 has the better games library, but going forward the PS3 is improving all the time. If you like FPS and racing games, the 360's controller is best. For sports (soccer) games, the PS3 controller rules though ;)

    most games are on both the 360 and PS3

    look at the exclusive games made for each PS3 or the xbox and make the secision accordingly

    Wii is fun, but not if u wanna hack n slash and shoot some monsters and enemies
    and the game play gets old after some time

    I agree with reppaT and I know he's totally right that Sony and Microsoft are going to stick with their systems for awhile. I can't wait for a Wii HD because when you see the Wii in HD it just doesn't compete.

    I think game piracy is shady too. It prevents the developers from having the budgets to create the big, epic games that everyone likes to play. So in the end it hurts the gamer.
