Having both 360 and ps3

My problems have been:-
Ps3 died 3 days short of a year. Got a replacement in store. new one hasnt put a foot wrong.
changed the hdd in my PS3 from 60 to 320 for €50

In Ireland RTE player is avail on PS3 not 360

My 360 controller is getting a little fooked but i guess thats to be expected
its alredy mentioned in here that a new one isnt cheap

the 360 is loud! and can get hot hence reliability issues

GT5 v Forza 4 (this is pistonheads right?) Tough one. I have both and play forza mostly due to the horrendous load times involved in GT5, in saying the the online experience in Forza can be bad at times.

PS3 accepts my bluetooth dongle/wireless keyboard and mouse which is great for internet and entering text compared to up up right right right down press and then start all over again on the 360.
My 360 has a small Hdd i think 16gb so since buying battlefild 3 i cant play MW3 or forza 4 (some cars only) until i buy a bigger hdd a problem i hope i will never have on my ps3. which also plays more file formats of your OWN PERSONAL VIDEOS than the 360.

Peace out.

Xbox Kinect continues to amaze everyone I show it to. The fact that there are no controllers with ice cream balls on top or wrist straps to fumble with adds a level of unique credibility to the system as it is clear that your whole body affects gameplay.

Forza 3 has plenty of oversteer and more realistic engine notes. Use of an original Microsoft wheel and pedals is great fun.

I had Playstations for 10 years but do not miss them at all.

Sorry to dig up an old thread. I'm thinking of changing my phone and looking at possibly getting one with a games console bundle. I'm a bit rusty on my consoles but I've heard of reliability issues on the PS3 but apparently the slimline has less issues which comes with the tariff. Now to compare with the Xbox 360, I've got a bit of a disgruntlement with Microsoft (I like linux and android) but i shouldn't let that cloud my judgement when it comes to phone and consoles i suppose.

So i'm more a fan of Gran turismo and an android phone on the PS3 slim but would i be better off on the impressive looking Forza and a microsoft phone and games console? Subjective i know.... Thanks.

Well technically the new consoles are just consol-ised gaming PC's.. So its much more effective to just buy a nice powerful gaming PC that can be upgraded in the future smile

All the new gen console games that are said to be exclusive will eventually find their way to PC as it is based on PC architecture anyways..

Except if you're new to PC gaming to get the power of a new generation console in a PC you'd most likely spend northwards of £600 for the unit and then you have a decent keyboard and mouse to purchase and tbh a new monitor as most consoles would be played on a main telly not conducive to PC gaming.

One of the niggles of the Steambox is the confusing array of machines you can access Steam through.

Forbes posted an article saying the biggest barrier to the uptake in Steamboxes is the number of machines claiming to do the same thing all of which retial through different sources with different prices. Console consumers have got use to there being limited hardware choice and it simplifies the process.

Have you thought about current gen consoles? I know this is a fairly old thread but my only concern with buying old gen stuff now is the fact they're soon to become dead platforms. Sure you could get legs out of past games but I reckon you'd soon regret it.

I bought a PS4 close to release, was a big outlay but that's the sort of sacrifice you've got to make if you want to be an early adopter. That's the only con I've experienced so far though. rotate It runs quiet, is unbelievably fast, looks pretty sexy and the games on it are mind blowing. Battlefield 4 is just next level! There's a reason it has smashed the competition.

If I was you I'd bite the bullet and go cutting edge. A gaming PC is also an option but so much can go wrong with them. I've heard horror stories of people frying 10k decks because they didn't install the water coolant systems properly hurl Whatever you decide I hope you enjoy your gaming.

Gaming PC all the way.

Straightforward build around a mid range processor and a brawny GPU.

So much more flexible then consoles when it comes to media as well.

You would be looking at around 6-700 quid for a good rig.
