Okay, here is the situation. I want to get a second console, as I do every gen. I can't decide on what to get, 360 or PS3. Right now I'm leaning towards the PS3. I have always liked Sony, and I never owned a Microsoft console before. I don't care about the PS3 having better graphics, I just want games. I like both the Dual Shock and the 360 controller just fine. I hear multiplats are usually better on 360, and the 360 has some pretty cool exclusives coming up. Ps3 also has some great games coming. Some suggestions? (By the way, if I do get a 360 I would get a Arcade model and just buy a hard drive later on). Sorry if this is annoying to some of you.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

Well true, but the Live service is more advanced and isn't very expensive.

I'm not paying $50 or $60 a year to pay online! I'm a cheap-o :P

Take a look at the exclusives for the two systems and see what you like more. But with XBLA, I think the Xbox 360 is the better overall choice.

If the respective console's first party line ups can't convince you either way (PS3 has Last Guardian, I'm just saying), then here's an easy way to help you decide... Question: What do you generally prefer, Japanese or US titles (by country of origin, not by style)? If you say Japanese, go with PS3... Otherwise go with the other one... European games are split fairly evenly so those titles shouldn't factor in much in your decision.

A PS3. Most of the games on xbox360 are also in PS3, and PS3 will have motion controls better than natal.

@Kawaiipikachu: I think that Microsoft did something to drastically decrease the failure rate a little while ago.
@Twario: Natal looks better than the Wand. I want a completely different experience, and the Wand is just the Wiimote.

I think that now I'm not leaning towards anything.

Current Xbox 360 failure rate is way lower than PS3's Yellow Light of Death (which is becoming more and more common with launch units (according to the official US forums), and since PS3 has only 1 year of warranty, well...), so as reliability goes, you can't go wrong with any, BUT, Xbox 360 has a 3 year warranty against RROD and E74, so it could be the winner there...

Hardware wise, the Xbox 360's GPU is way more advanced,has more memory and the drive speed and bandwidth is higher, so it has everything to show the best graphics possible (PS3 has a big disc, but lacks the speed, amount of memory, advanced GPU and the bandwidth the 360 has). That, and the fact that the Xbox 360 is easier to program for, will give you the best version of multiplattform games almost all the time (when it isn't the best, they are either equal, or there's a couple of years between each version).

Xbox LIVE Gold is only $50 a year, and you can get prepaid cards for as low as $40... sure, PSN is free, but you get what you pay for, the Xbox LIVE platform is simply more advanced, stable, reliable and feature packed than the PSN... You'll only regret paying for Gold if you never play online, in which case, you would get the free Silver membership.

On DLC and Downloadable Games, Xbox LIVE's collection is way larger and more quality-filled than PSN... that could change as time goes, but as it is now and in the near future, Xbox LIVE's catalog is way better (to buy stuff from LIVE you don't have to pay for the Gold membership)

Then, it comes down to exclusives on each console... and that's just a matter of what you like... Xbox 360 has, among other things, the latest GTA games (Lost & Damned, and Balad of Gay Tony), Left 4 Dead 2, Halo 3 ODST, Forza 3, Viva PiƱata, Banjo-Kazooie, Crackdown 2, a worthy console version of The Orange Box, Mass Effect 2, Gears of War 2, among others... while on PS3 you'll have Killzone 2, Resistance, Ratchet & Clank, LittleBigPlanet, Infamous, Gran Turismo, among others...

Personally, I use my Xbox 360 a LOT more than my PS3, and even if the games where fairly priced on PS3, my Xbox 360 would still get the most use ,there are a lot of current and old exclusives in there that I haven't even played but want to (I need to finish Perfect Dark Zero for example).

Also, I'd rather not pay for a 360 wireless internet adapter. Too expensive.

That's why they have ethernet cables or whatever the wire you can use to plug your 360 to the internet is called. It takes some time to get it set up and stuff, but it's worth it considering it's cheaper.

I enjoy the 360 more. That's just me though. They're both great systems.
If you were asking me in 2007, I would say Xbox 360, no contest. Now, most of the exclusives have been ported to the PS3. 360 has a larger community though. If you want a good 360, it'll cost you 300 dollars for a hardrive and online, so they both cost the same. Make a tiebreaker.
Flip a coin.

Why would anyone willingly play with wireless (increasing lag at least 1000 times, even on Xbox LIVE)? unless you are using 802.11n (which isn't included on any console, but can be added to the Xbox 360 with the official adapter) you should only play with an ethernet cable if possible... is far more reliable, won't affect the connection unless there's more than 100 meters of cable (and if you need that much, 802.11g wouldn't be enough and ethernet would still be more reliable than an access point)
