    The 360 at the moment has far more support and followers IMHO. The PS3 has the BlueRay Drive and a big price tag. Personally, I love the X-Box 360, and the Wii and PS2 I have at home already.

    Some great games on the 360, Gears of War for one and Mass Effect if you like RPG's like KOTOR etc.

    I'd get the 360 at the mo, and after Christmas next year the PS3 should be alot more affordable as the BlueRay production ramps up more and have them both.

    Xbox 360, i bought my second one on sunday (Eliite), so i can have 1 in front room and 1 in my bedroom. Plus my house mate has one too, loads of fun on xbox live.

    The controllers are the xbox360 i find better for long time playing.

    xbox 360 - better controller, more games, better online

    ps3 - buggy games, no games, delayed releases on games, free online

    PS3 - you get Bluray and they are learning how to get the best from it now.

    Thats why I say to go 360 at the mo and change in a years time when the PS3 will be holding its head high.

    On a side note, if you phone is now due an upgrade, try and get a deal for a 360 or PS3 with it. Thats how I got my 360 Arcade, a new phone and a cheaper contract through Dial-A-Phone.

    Just an idea.

    Was tht before the news of the price drop came out!

    Depends on what you like. I'd go into Game or somewhere and take a look at the games & see what catches your eye. Then maybe have a look at a magazine or review site and see what is thought of those games. Then choose which one has games you like that seem to be good. Xbox is mainly western style gaming (but JRPGs are starting to come out) where as PS3 gets more Japanese style gaming.

    Someone with a PS3 will have to tell you how Home and multiplayer is coming along but Xbox Live is pretty damned fantastic, keeping friends across all games, downloading demos and previews. so if online play is important to you that could be a factor

    It's one of those horrible decisions, you make your choice and have to live with it. Well until you trade it in or flog it

    If you get an X-Box, go for the premium, as you can't do Online Gaming without the hard drive.

    BTW, word on the street is that the xb0x is about to drop by £50

    I had one of those back in the 70's.

    I have a 360, its great, the games are cheap and it works. Locally you can buy pre owned games for it from £5 upwards. FTW!

    Xbox 360, huge amount of games and a lot of edugeekers on it now (check out the social group: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/group.php?groupid=20)

    Also in < 6 months the ps3 should drop in price again they say so I would wait. There are no "killer" games on the ps3 and the new GTA has lots of xbox exclusive content if you like that series.
