    Your answer was fine ginko, I'd like a more detailed response.. Im also looking for a good 40 to 42 inc plasma or lcd, any recommendations? preferably works well with the device you recommend for me.

    Mainly used for entertainment obviously, as we are talking about gaming devices.

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    ok.. ginko your solution is gone from view, care to post a comment to see if I can get you back?

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    Plasma or lcd television.. currently I don't see any solutions offered.. ginko is gone and I see noting..

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    Yeah ginko I saw your full solution again, you didn't really answer my 2nd question but lets see if there are any other solutions from other experts posted.

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    ok, now I've seen also solution from chargois,

    score so far is
    1 xbox
    1 ps3

    no recommendations of televisions.

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    I got to see ginkos solution again. Its a real paid for premium mate. Obviously I want to test the system out why would I pay for premium myself?

    ... Anything else out there?

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    what I ment is I'm not going to accept the first solution offered even if it has been the best one so far.

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    repost

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    Maybe ginko misunderstood, someone will get paid for this premium.. wont bother with refund.

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    I have no solutions at all, and my problem is not shown to public? Repost button is gone. Please repost the problem.

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    if a lcd or a plasma breaks down lets say after 3 years (outside of warranty). which one costs more to repair(Generally?)?

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    Drcool, last comment was for you. Seen 3 solutions now, reposted multiple times to get over ginko, seems you can fight your way back into the view by posting comments.

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

I'm satisfyed of your solution and I think its the best one I can get from this website. Thanks, buy yourself a drink :)

You should focus on the games and less on the console hardware itself, mainly exclusive games. If you prefer games like Halo, Gears of War, and other games only available to Microsoft and the XBox then get that one. If you prefer games like Metal Gear Solid, Resistance, God of War, etc..., then get the Sony. So I would closely examine the exclusive game base of each machine.

Also consider that the XBox came out a year ahead of the PS3 so it has more games available, especially lower priced budget games and previously owned games.

The PS3 is more advanced graphically and includes the Blu-Ray playback, so if you watch a lot of movies then the PS3 might be a better value. Especially since you are looking at getting a new TV you will want to take advantage of HD and Blu-Ray. If you get an XBox and wish to watch Blu-Ray you will have to spend at least another $200 to buy a player.

The XBox on the other hand integrates perfectly with Windows Media Center edition and the Media Center features in Windows Vista. So if you have a computer that records live TV for you or if you have a lot of music and movies on your computer then the XBox may be a better choice as it acts as a Windows Media Extender device. I believe the XBox can also download NetFlix movies if you subscribe to that. XBox live also has movies and TV shows that you can Rent and download. But I think Sony is planning a similar service shortly.

You should also consider your old games library. Both consoles will play games from their last generation. So if you have a large collection of PS2 games you may consider the PS3 as it plays those too. Otherwise is you have a large collection of original XBox games, the XBox 360 plays some of those as well.

So you should base your decision on the exclusive games available to the consoles, your multimedia needs and your current game library.

In my opinion the PS3 is the best choice because of it's sheer power and the inclusion of a Blu-Ray player.

As for TVs the LCDs are your only real choice. Plasma screens burn-in rather easily, so any elements that don't move like the games interface or pause screen can burn into the screen. Both consoles offer solutions for that like pixel rotation and screen blanking or screen-savers but those are just work-arounds. The cost of repair either should be about the same for a similar problem. If you need a new display panel for a plasma or an LCD the cost should be in the same range. I would definitely consider getting an extended warranty with any TV you purchase, it's worth it for a high ticket item like this.

My current favorite TV is the Olevia i747. It's a 47" LCD TV for the price of a 40". It's getting rave reviews all over the web. TigerDirect is selling it a lot but you should be able to find it elsewhere. This TV comes with much better speakers than most LCDs have. It also uses an HQV video processor which is better than most also. It really is the best TV for the money these days.

Seems like TigerDirect is out of i747s right now. They do have this 55" for $1400 (Wow!) check it out: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3712881&CatId=3651

But BestBuy et al are selling there LCDs at incredible prices lately. Your best bet is to go into a large electronics store and look at a bunch of TVs side-by-side and pick the one you feel has the best picture for the money. They often have combo deals that have a TV, 5.1 sound system, and PS3 or XBox for a special price.

I hope I've answered your questions, but feel free to ask for more if need be.

Thanks.

This all boils down to ps3 has free internet access which you do not have to buy an internet adapter where as the xbox 360 you have to purchase the adapter for the internet which will run about $90.00 dollars and then you still have to pay for the 360 network access on top of that. Also the 360 is more prone to overheating, You can buy the cooler but that still does not solve the issue. Another downside to the xbox 360 is that they run out of hard drive very quickly. I have both systems and i can tell you that my ps3 gets alot more attention. I run my ps3 on an LCD t.v. I also love the blue ray player on the ps3. I am telling you from experience to pay the little extra for the ps3. you will be satisfied. thanks.

Ekse just for me, i think that PS3 is better than xbox 360 because it is more compatibility with the games unlike xbox and also games are more priority to ps3 rather than xbox. here in the philippines ps3 are use by many, xbox are use by few. its just only my suggestion and the decision is yours. thank you!

The two consoles have both good performances, PS3 maybe has more options and extra, XBox is more similar to a computer.

    Both consoles mount a powerful graphic system, see here Xbox 360 Versus PlayStation 3 Graphics Comparison - Features at ...
    Probably PS3 is slightly more powerful, but the graphic quality depends also on the game used.

    The Xbox 360's CPU has more general purpose processing power because it has three general purpose cores, and Cell has just one.


    Cell's claimed advantage is on streaming floating point work which is done on its seven DSP processors.



    The Xbox 360 GPU has more processing power than the PS3's. In addition,
    its innovated features contribute to overall rendering performance.



    Xbox 360 has 278.4 GB/s of memory system bandwidth. The PS3 has less
    than one-fifth of Xbox 360's (48 GB/s) of total memory system bandwidth.



    CONCLUSION

    When you break down the numbers, Xbox 360 has provably more performance
    than PS3. Keep in mind that Sony has a track record of over promising
    and under delivering on technical performance. The truth is that both
    systems pack a lot of power for high definition games and
    entertainment.



    However, hardware performance, while important, is only a third of the
    puzzle. Xbox 360 is a fusion of hardware, software and services.
    Without the software and services to power it, even the most powerful
    hardware becomes inconsequential. Xbox 360 games—by leveraging
    cutting-edge hardware, software, and services—will outperform the
    PlayStation 3.

    This system is idiot, I think the guys in there are pushing us toward posting only BS.

    I have seen Fixyas given to the most idiot solutions, in a couple of occasions Fixya was given to solutions written for a totally different product.

    Why should we waste our time in writing decent solutions? If you are first, then you'll better leave a placeholder, if not, you go for the last post, possibly with a nice cheering comment, and use the work done by someone behind you that wasted fifteen or thirty minutes on the problem.

    ...meanwhile, number of premiums is going down, and this makes things worse.

    I should dedicate more attention to my real customers here.

    "if a lcd or a plasma breaks down lets say after 3 years (outside of warranty). which one costs more to repair(Generally?)?"

    That makes no sense, depends on what is broken.

    A plasma screen has more expensive parts , and the absolute cost for a repair can get to a higher amount.

    LCD are toughter, providing that you do not kick the display.

    Both technology are not really expensive to repair, many faults can be fixed with less money than repairing a rear projection TV.

    Plasma TVs have a better pricture than simple LCD, the best picture is on Rear projection TVs combined with LCD display TVs, but those are expensive Exe.
    If you keep asking me question Fixya won't give you money back even if you change your mind on it, and you will have to buy a cheaper TV, think about this.

    multiple times to get over ginko, seems you can fight your way back
    into the view by posting comments."

    That explains how **** experts that post five or 6 rubbish comments in a row can get so many easy fixya.

    That is what the copy and paste guy was up to, getting a fixya with loads of silly posts, so that you cover other solutions, and end up wit the user seeing one of your comments and giving you fixya, or *uxya.

Cant decide which one to buy


Hi, Xbox 360 is almost like ps3, though they have different features, but their mechanism inside are the same.

You can differentiate them by the body beauty, and display.

Think about it and go for one.
For me i would prefer xbox cause of the shape and size.

Ps3 throws my xbox 360 off line. why


Could be an IP conflict.
For example say on your network the xbox is 192.168.0.12, then if your ps3 has the same IP address, when you turn it on it makes an IP conflict over your network and one has to go, and usually the newer powered on device kicks off the original item.
Quick way to fix this if it is indeed an IP issue is to manually change one of the IP addresses, from the PS3 or Xbox360. its more easy to manually set the IP of the xbox360 then it is the ps3.

XBOX OR PLAYSTATION 3


a very interesting dilema!! the ps3 does have controllers with rumble now..
problem with the xbox is frequent hardware failures needing replacements,i had three!!the live experience is unbeatable!
the ps3 has better graphics though people would contest that..games are much less compared to xbox..offlate bluray laser errors are occuring..i had too..paid 7000 rupees for that..
with a psp u could control the ps3 which is a cool thing but not really useful..ps3 offers a media card support.
both are good as media extenders and u could stream content..both now support divx..both have HDMI connectivity though not in all xbox models
if u buy a ps3 make sure u get warranty for it in the place u live..i got mine from US and had no such luck with sony..
so make the right choice!! i could clarify any doubts u may have..
PS: i have all four! and i love the ps3 a shade more than the xbox360

Which is the best


Depends on what's more important to you- gaming or watching Blu-Ray Movies.
XBOX 360 has the best games, better controller and a better online experience($50). However, it is slower, lower end hardware, annual fee of 40-50 for online play, no hd player (HD DVD is dead).
PS3 has one or two good games, small controller and has analog sticks in non-intuitive locations as opposed to the xbox controller. It does however, have higher end hardware(Games are seamless because of the higher end cell processor as well as better graphics card). You can also browse the internet on the PS3(it's really a computer)-u can connect a wireless keyboard and mouse and install Linux on it. Online access to games is free and comes with an awesome Blu Ray Player. The Black and silver finish is laso gorgeous.
So, if u;re more into gaming, go fo xbox 360, HD movies, go for PS 3. I have both and love the XBOX 360 just for it's awesome xbox only games(GOW, Halo, Etc).
