Should I swap my PS3 slim 120gb for an xbox 360 elite?

I got a refund yesterday on my PS3 Slim as it wasn't functioning properly, I now haveexactly £298 in my pocket to spend on a new console. So which one, xbox 360 or ps3?

  1. ps3 is the only way to go, far superior

  2. go with the 360 the never have glitches and are always working properly.

  3. ps3

  4. unlike most people who will just say that their system is better just because of the competition, i have a PS3 and XBOX 360, i like my Ps3 better actually. Even though everyone says that Xbox multiplayer is waaay better, its not. The only thing really different between the two online multiplayers are that PS3 dosn't have hidden mods and players looking at the games, and you have to pay lik $50 a year for XBOX, that's enough to but you a PS3 controller or another game! WHOA!, also, the PS3 120gb comes with a controller and game if you get a package. It gave me resistance but it might differ for states im not sure. i got my PS3 120gb for like $200 while the elite is like,$300 now, even though XBOX gives you a mic, you can get a better one for PS3 for like $10. Xbox is centered around money making while PS3 is centered around the players and a little bit of money because we all love money. IT just doesn't ruin the gameplay.

  5. No you should never trade a system used for another one. Take it to a game store, trade in the 360 towards a new one. As a rule of thumb I never buy used eletronics for more than 50 bucks unless I get some sort of guarntee and its damned cheap. When you just trade someone elses console you dont know if it will break in a month and if it does your stuck, you dont know if they got the system banned online or not, you dont know if there is something wrong with it now they arent telling you.

    This message is coming from a guy who owns and plays both systems as well as 27 other ones and been playing for 30 years. I am a fanboy of no system so I’m telling you straight because I play games for the games themselves, I don’t play because of a name on the system itself.

    Sony recently dropped the ps3 price to 299. I will compare it to a 360 elite since its microsofts highest end 360 system and is priced the same as the ps3.

    Ps3 has built in included wifi connection for wireless internet, the 360 does not. It will cost you another 100 bucks to buy an addon for the 360 to get wifi. (do note ps3 also includes ethernet for a wired internet connection also so you get both).

    Ps3 has bluetooth and usb ports for flash drives, keyboard, mice, microphones, headsets, earpieces and so on, the 360 has neither nor can you add them on.

    Ps3 has 100% free online gaming, the 360 charges you a annual fee to play any game online or even have a friends list. Ps3 also has something called Home which is 100% free and optional to use where you make a character and run through a virtual world with other people, chat, check out themed areas like a resident evil 5 area with mini games, trailers playing on big screens, an apartment you get to own and decorate and its constantly being added onto. Think of Home as kind of like The Sims only it a city about games only it has alot of other people in it also with you. I also prefer to ps3 community, 90% of the time I get on xbox live all I hear are a bunch of immature brats cursing and yelling.

    Ps3 can play blu ray high def movies and has a really good upconvert on dvds, 360 can only play normal dvds and doesnt improve their picture any. Its also kind of cool I can take a movie I download on my pc, stick it on a usb flash drive, plug it into my ps3 and watch it on my bigger tv right off the flash drive. Can pause, fast forward, frame rate change, zoom in and out and use other options like you can on a dvd from the ps3 video menu.

    Not to mention the ps3 runs dead quiet vs a 360 which is quite loud. And ps3 is known for being a pretty problem free machine while 360 even to this day still suffers from hardware problems, hell gamestop stopped taking extended warranties on them (don’t know if they do again now or not) because so many people were bringing them back with problems.

    Far as games go both systems have 90% of the exact same games. All big names games like megaman 9, wolfenstein, bioshock 1 & 2, dead rising 2, beatles rock band, ghostbusters, bayonetta, call of duty 4, fallout 3, rock band 5, grand theft auto 4, modern warfare 2, brutal legend, marvel vs capcom 2, batman arkahm asylum, madden 10, assassins creed 2 and so on are on both systems and will continue to be on both.

    Each year the list of exclusive games gets smaller. But personally the games on the ps3 that are exclusive I like better and have more of a variety to them. Killzone 2, MAG, final fantasy 13 versus, demons souls, uncharted 1 and 2, little big planet, flower, god of war 3, gran turismo 5, super stardust hd, metal gear solid 4, resistance 1 and 2, ratchet and clank a crack in time and tools of destruction, infamous, heavy rain among another dozen titles coming out in the next year that are ps3 only I like better. If you like MMO type games ps3 is only system to announce ones coming out for it, the two being DC universe online and Final Fantasy 14 online. But all big name big production games will be on both systems.

    And well, I personally like the ps3 controllers better. They feel more comfortable in my hands, the D-Pad is more precise because the 360 d-pad is just a disc and sometimes pushing up registers as left or right, and the batteries are rechargeable in it I that like so when it gets low I just plug in a usb to mini-usb cable in the front of the ps3 and it charges while I play so I don’t have to buy batteries for it, after 2 years of use my controller still holds its charge like it did new.

    I’m not anti 360, I just prefer my ps3 more, and more or less just get games for my 360 when it’s a exclusive for the 360.


  6. It really depends on what you want. If you like features, go with the PS3. It has blu-ray, built in WiFi, ect. If you wanted a better online community, and more games, go with the with Xbox 360. The PS3 is good if you prefer a lot of features, the Xbox 360 is good if you prefer a lot of games.
