xbox and ps 3

The games themselves.

As you know, a lot of games are developed for both systems. But there are those that are exclusive to either PS3 or Xbox 360.

This is what will make a real difference to your choice of system...

Which of the exclusive games do you want to play?

For example, if you are desperate to 'Do The Idol' with SingStar, or have a need for Metal Gear Solid 4, then PlayStation 3 is the system for you.

If, however, you've just begun a love affair with Halo Wars, Xbox is the way to go.

It's PS3 if you've been itching to jump into Uncharted, Fallout, Ratchet & Clank, Killzone 3, Dead Space 2.

And if you are blown away by reviews of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Resistance 3, Rage, Infamous 3, LittleBigPlanet 2, Batman: Arkham City, then the thinking can stop right now. The console for you is Playstation 3.

If, however, you are waiting 'with breathe that is bated' (sorry - girlie SATC reference there!) for Gears of War 3, XCOM, Forza 4, Project Draco, what you want is Xbox 360.

And if you feel you must have any of these: Chime, Snoopy Flying Ace, Toy Soldiers, Viva Pinata, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Crackdown 2 in your life, then you want - nay - NEED to get Xbox 360.

Another Secret To Help Decide Whether To Get PS3 or Xbox 360
 Here's something else to think about - How do you want to use your console?

Online, do you want to hook up with your friends and play? If yes, then you'll want to go with the gaming console that the majority of your friends already have.

If you are going to play with strangers online, you can choose either console. And a couple of things to note:

1) With Xbox, at present, there are about four times as many players signed up as are with Playstation. However, we are talking BIG numbers for both systems! I don't think you'll get lonely online with either.
2) To play online games with Xbox 360, you have to pay for membership to Xbox Live.
3) To play online games with Playstation3, you subscribe to PlayStation®Network which is free.
