I can't see how the X-box has better games, all the multi format games tend to look better on PS3 and play the same on both systems, and tbh with the push that PS3 got this year, and the fact it outsold X-Box in Europw and Japan, the developers are making more effort with the PS3 stuff because of the extra power it has and therfore enables them to do more with their games

As for Blu Ray, it's brilliant, movies look awesome, no more swapping discs, and my dvd's look better through a PS3 because it makes dvd's look sharper as it upscales them,

Simple fact is the Xbox boys know that their system is going to be obsolete in 18 months, the PS3 has a damn site more legs in it , if you want proper next gen, get a PS3 :yes:

you should use the download service as calling all cars, everyday shooter, mega man 9 and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix are some of the best games out for the ps3



i want Street fighter II HD, I had the original and used to play it on arcade at out local ice rink, SF4 doesn't look too shabby either

Well, Andrew, I have read / heard a few reports that suggest most multi-platform games look better on the 360 than the PS3. I`m not sure how true this is or how large the difference is...but a lot of people seem to say it.

I`m not really bothered about having a blu-ray player on my computer, the whole appeal of it would be watching films on the big HD telly in the main room rather than sat on my computer chair looking at the monitor.

Far as I can tell, both have great exclusive games...Gears of War 2, Halo 3, Left4Dead on the one side...Resistance 2, MGS4, Killzone 2 ( I know this isn`t out yet but the trailer really looks awesome! ), Little Big Planet on the other. I`m a huge Resi Evil fan and it`s the release of 5 in march (?) that has tempted me to finally get a new console.

There`s a rumoured price cut for the PS3 in march as well, which doesn`t seem unlikely...I may even wait till then, not exactly rolling in cash just after Xmas, especially after just buying Wacken, Priest, Overkill and Metallica tickets!

How long has Killzone 2 been in development? Seems like forever and a day since they released the first teaser of it with the rendered graphics. And lets not forget what an impact Killzone 1 made on the PS2, hailed as a Halo killer but went down like a ton of bricks.

I am shocked to not see super stardust HD on that list, I saw a friend playing on it and I had a go and it was great!

If anyone is in the mood for a good read have a look at next years exclusives so far:

http://www.gameplayer.com.au/gp_documents/081209Ps3gamesof2008.aspx - PS3

I think ps3 is the best to invest in from those lists...

those lists cant be trusted as rage, Bayonetta, Final Fantasy XIII and Brutal Legend are coming out for the 360 as well. As for superstardust HD i havent got it yet but it is on my list

the 360 has got better exclusives fable 2, gears of war, beautiful katamari, ninja gaiden 2, dead rising, eternal sonata (untill feb), Earth defance force 2017, wartech senko no ronde, blue dragon, lost odyssey, ikaruga HD, rez HD, Castle Crashers and they are just the ones i own

With multiformat game i havent noticed a lot of differene in graphics but the ps3 ones tend to have longer loading times and if sales figures were everything then the wii would be the best console, no system is going to be obsolete any time soon but if i was forced to pick one it would have to be the ps3 if only for how much mony sony loses on each one

also resident evil 5 is out march the 13th

The original post on this topic mentioned an addiction to the Total War series, I have this now.
Rome Total War to be specific, just saps hours out of my day, dagnabbit!

I've ordered the expansion packs so that should feed my addiction :D

I'm building a computer on Monday. I'll have a pretty naff GPU, but I'll be updating that within a month or so. I can finally get back to playing TF2 on a regular basis :love:
