I'd say get an 360.

1. Has more games.
2. Cheaper.
3. Xbox Live/ Online Multiplayer.
4. Graphics as good as PS3.
5.Halo 3 :D .
6.You can switch on/off the console with the controller , pretty handy if you're lazy lol ( dunno if you could do that with the PS3 ).
7.Connect your iPod and listen music while playing games :P.

Definately. Wii's all the way!

But yeah go with the PS3 cos HD-DVD is pretty much obsolete now anyway, I don't really blame them how could it not be when competing with a product with such a cool name as "blu-ray". Also the games for PS3 sound a lot better than the 360, and there's been numerous reports of 360's gone bad, but to be fair I'm sure there's been (or will be) equally as many complaints about problems people have had with a PS3.

See I don't get people who do that. The PS2 was at least $200, how many old games, 30? At 50 a piece thats 1500 (just going on an average here). And you knocked $250 off the price. See I just think that's stupid. Yeah maybe you won't ever use the PS2 or the games again, and since a PS3 can play PS2 games get rid of the PS2 fair enough but still, as far as what you've already paid compared with what you're now giving it away for and getting a discount for as a result, it really seems as if that's a rip off.

RE: PS3 or XBOX 360 ?
I would vote fot the PS3 lol I have both so I'd say its a fair argument...

Here's what I like about the PS3:
- Free online
- Blu-ray player (currently the best one on the market for its price)
- Sixaxis controllers is fun
- You can put linux on it (and use it as a pc lol)
- You can use any standard usb keyboard and mouse to play some games
- Though it's debatable that the xbox 360 has a better gfx card, the ps3 has a far better proccesor, so the physics in the game would be far superior.
- and if you get this cat controller, it's just like the xbox 360 one (i have it) and it's far better than the original one
- It has wireless built in

What I like about the xbox 360:
- Online is far better
- Far more games
- The slightly older games that got proted over to ps3 look much better on the xbox than the ps3
- The controller is much much nicer - it hugs your hand
- It doesn't look like a toaster (lmao)
- It doesn't pick up fingerprints and dust easily (the ps3 does)
- Slightly cheaper

That's all i can think of really for the moment (it was off the top of my head) and i'd just like to say one thing :P

Sony are developing PS3 Home, which is like a bit netowrk of players, where you can go to each others flats etc and play pool. It's really quite cool all the stuff they're doing, check out some of the features here:
Wiki's entry about PS3 home

And another thing, the games will be getting better and better with the ps3 because the developers in the games can't get the full power out of the gfx card yet because it hasn't been out long enough and the coding system ps3 implemented is overly complicated.
Hope I helped :)

you're working in the wrong currency, lol

the games were bought for between 15 and 30 and i actually got the console for about 40 (by trading in my old fat PS2 when i got the slimline one).  And as I've said in other threads, I made a mistake by holding onto the games for so long, which is why now with my PS3 i trade in games as soon as i'm done with them rather than hanging on to them.  and besides, getting ANYTHING back is a bonus, because on virtually nothing else do you get money back, think how many mobile phones, laptops, computers, etc, etc we've all had here.....and you don't get anything back for them (except if you manage to sell them on)

as for keeping the games.....that's stupid, yeah there's some backwards compatibility, but playing PS2 games on a PS3 is retarded, i made that mistake in the past too, i kept some PSOne games when i got my PS2.....they never once went back in the console because the quality of games available for the better console is such that you won't need the old ones.
