Coming soon, I'll be buying either a PS3 or an Xbox 360.
I'm asking this in several places and wanted to get your feedback.
I'm an RPG, FPS, Action-Adventure player for the most part, although if I'm bored enough I'll play anything. I'm interested in playing online when I have the time, which system has the better online play?

What are the pros and cons of each to you guys?

I think you should get a 360. Cheaper, cooler looking and the controllers are better. No idea what the game support is like for each, dedicated PC gamer here Smile

PS3.

The online part is free. You can play Killzone 2. I've got one. Syn's got one, my number 1 fan has got one.

What more reasons do you need?

While I do like the PS3 for it's free PSN, I've played both a lot and enjoy them both about equal. I won't mind paying for the 360's online content because my job situation is actually really good now. I'm just stuck. I guess I'll just buy a Wii (never gonna happen, I already beat the Zelda game).

Haha, I was waiting for the 3rd option to get a vote, I thought it would happen a lot sooner though.

I still haven't cast my vote, cause you still need to get Psychonauts. That 'you' was plural.

The game was released in '05. Everyone who's going to enjoy Psychonauts already has Psychonauts.


And for the sake for the thread, go for the Xbawx. Because it has some nice games.

I don't think you really need a new PC for Psychonauts.

You don't, it's a surprisingly good port. No cheats on the steam version though. :(

Yeah, but I don't have a computer of my own right now, so I'll be buying one regardless.

360 has better shooters.

Though of course shooters on consoles almost universally suck.
