I own a 360. but for your situation I'd go with a PS3 since they have the GT5 bundle out. My only gripe about the PS3 ( and I play one all the time at my buddy's house ) is that you can't have multiple logins on one system to save data and progress, where as with the 360 anyone I play with can make their own profile to use and keep. Some PS3 games save second player "guest" information some don't.
It does not. But you can buy a bluetooth remote, or one with a wireless USB dongle.
How about this?wheels for the Xbox is pathetic.
You can use a universal remote but you are limited to the Logitech Harmony range, but that's not really a bad thing. You do have to get the Logitech Harmony PS3 adaptor though which means you do have to spend a bit more.OK I should have clarified. My problem with PS3 as an entertainment device is that you would not be able to use a universal remote with it. Unless there are some extremely high end BT + IR hybrids (I have not seen any)
This will probably get me negrepped but I wouldn't buy a PS3 or XBOX for just one game (e.g. GT5 or Forza)
Don't forget hard drive replaceability. You probably need to buy the 360 with the 250GB HDD, but I believe that's the most you'll ever get due to having to use MS hard drives. With a PS3, if you ever feel the need to go bigger, you just go buy a cheap internal laptop hard drive and slap that baby in there. I'm not sure the OP would need that much space but it's a nice thing to know. I expanded my 80gb HDD to 320 for $35.
As to the "if you cant afford xbox live you cant afford a console" arguement, that's not even the point. The point is that's almost a free game every year you get on PS3 versus paying for that on 360. And didn't the Live prices just increase too? That's so reassuring
I have both systems and prefer the PS3. Main reason is the noise, the X360 has two smaller fans at the back and the PS3 only has one larger fan. And the noise of the optical drive in the X360 will drive you mad, even if you load the games to HDD. Even the HDD is loud on the X360.
: XBOX 360.... Price, performance, visual quality, game selection and online support. I think the XBOX 360 wins in every category.
the XBOX 360 core is only $299. The PS3 is around $499 for the 20GB version.
It comes with a hard drive, but you don't need a hard drive to enjoy a lot of great games on the 360 so I think it's fair to compare both core systems.
On paper, the PS3 is more powerful. In reality, it's quite inferior to the 360. Without getting into too many details, the three general-purpose CPU's the xbox360 has are currently FAR easier to take advantage of than the SPU's on the PS3. I suspect a few years down the road some high budget, first party PS3 exclusive titles will come out that really take advantage of the SPU's and do things the XBOX 360 can't, but I don't think the console is worth buying based on this speculation ... =(
The XBOX 360 has a huge head in game selection, 1 year is an eternity in gaming...
but I love ps3 at the same time so its up to you!
hope it helps =s
