    I think he was trying to point out that if you had the Xbox for 3 years then you need to add 3 years' worth of Xbox Live payments,
    and then if you want to play BluRays you need to buy a BluRay player whereas the PS3 wil play them as well as the games and the online being free.

    Personally, I have an Xbox360 and a PS3. My PS3 is used for DVD/BluRay and my 360 for gaming, because I just prefer it, and for every PS3 game that I can't get
    on the 360 there are 10+ other 360 games I'd rather play anyway!

    @LosOjos: I think TCO over a certain period of time would suggest otherwise, 5 years subscription is £150 on the 360.

    To be honest, I have been tempted to ditch my 360 and move to a PS3. I can then play Blu-Ray DVDs, have a games console and play online without having to pay (I don't play online on my 360 much but still love the online features when I do) and not get bombarded with adverts. My biggest gripe with the 360 is I have to go through waves of adverts and attempts at selling me stuff I don't need or already have just to find what I want.

    And yet I've heard the PS3 online gaming function isn't as good. Just hearsay I'll admit - theres no chance of me swapping to ps3: they're still pricey, the only games it has that I actually like are available on both consoles, but many that I like on xbox aren't, and I don't have any blue-ray movies (not do I want to re-buy my extensive dvd collection!).

    I too have both, albeit the ps3 came with one of my previous phone deals, i had a few games and borrowed a few, and hated them all, just dont get on with them or the controller at all, its now my media center, we play all our blurays and music through it and thats about it.

    my 360 is a gaming wonder and i love it, the Live is awesome compared to the psn which for me leads to alot of frustration at being lagged out of games and games not even being able to find lobbys (cod4) its free for a reason....

    I don't understand how anybody can think the PSN network is any good, I recently rented a movie, it took 6 hours to download so I could watch it! And it cost me £4.50! And no, it's not my internet connection, the same movie took 20 minutes via 'other' routes.

    They don't stream the movies then, like BTVision? Kinda defeats the point of on demand movies!
