Xbox 360 - Upsides- Better controller
- Xbox Live
- Better Western RPGs
- Downloadable Movies and TV Show
- More Demos
- Less Online Errors and or problems
- Achievements

Xbox 360 - Downsides
- Have to buy wireless adaptor if you want wireless
- RRoD (supposed to be gone on newer models)
- Smaller hard drive
- Xbox Live $

PS3 - Upsides
- Wireless included
- Playstation Network Free
- Blu-Ray player
- Nice Upconverting DVD player
- New PSStore has a nice new interface
- Final Fantasy (if you like it, which I dont)

PS3 - Downsides
- A lot of developers have trouble with the netcode for PSN
- Controller, feels cheap and the motion sensor sucks

I personally have an xbox 360. Hopefully this helps you choose.

Both consoles have advantages.
The Xbox 360 has a vast array of titles and has the biggest fan base of the two. If you connect the console to the internet, you can download games and movies through Xbox Live. You can also connect your PC to your Xbox 360 and use the console as a multimedia center using Windows Media Center.

The PS3 has a blu ray drive as standard, so you can watch blu ray movies through your PS3. DVD's are also upscaled up to 720p to improve the look of your movies. The PS3's online service is free, and allows you to download game demo's and downloadable content for games.
The Xbox 360's disadvantages are the fact you need to pay for access to Xbox Live, roughly £40 per year, but it does guarentee a reliable online service. Also earlier and cheaper models of the Xbox do not support full HD via HDMI.
The PS3 is very expensive and lacks quality titles. The console is also on a 10 year plan, so even though the console will outlast its rivals, it is likely to become outdated.
If you want to watch blu ray films and play games occasionally, go for the PS3. If you want a console with a lot of titles and a reliable online service,  get the 360. Of the two I'd choose the 360, but in 2 years or so I might need to reconsider.

I have an oportunitu to get ps3 or xbox elite. Which one should I take


Hi,

I would recommend the Xbox because they have a better network of players that use Xbox Live. However the PS3 has better graphics.

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.

Take care.

No, it will not work. The technology is different and a PC will not play a PS2, PS3, or XBox 360 or original XBox game.

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
