    Firstly, this isnt gaming forum

    Second, Games are waste of time

    Third Investing in somethin online would be way better and after time you could buy both when you have enough $$$

    Eassyy Ferma, relax bud.

    Keeping a work/life balance is important, if it allows you to relax and switch off- it's all good.

    I have a PS3, as I didnt want to pay a subscription to online play like on xbox.

    Wrong. This is an IM forum, first & foremost.

    However, there is a 'general' section. Don't confuse the two.

    As I explained to someone earlier today in real life, the main factor is what console the majority of your friend's have. Because this will enable to you swap and share games. Other than that, I prefer the Xbox 360 because it's got better multiplaying games and I love the controller.

    Having said that, the PS3 has a Blu-Ray player (Xbox 360 just got a DVD player), which means the games can hold more data and the fact you can update the firmware to play 3D Blu-Ray discs if you got a 3D TV. I might even get the PS3 in the future.

    Ultimately it's your choice.

    Guys this is the lounge; post whatever you want here...

    I personally own the PS3, as it doesn't require any subscriptions to play online. However I don't really use it anymore, normally just use it as a dvd player now!

    For all those saying this is the lounge post what you like- I completely agree!

    However, this is not a 'general forum' , it is an IM forum- with a general section, ie the lounge. Hopefully that clears it up for those who are having a tantrum.

    Xbox games are more fun IMHO but Xbox's tend to break. I just broke my 3rd... It is still under warranty but that means I get to send it back to Microsoft and wait another 2 months to get it back - it's almost worth just buying a new one again instead.

    On the flip side PS3 is pretty awesome, they won't break (as far as I know at least) and they play blu ray but the games are not as good.

    Step 1)Buy a PC
    Step 2) Buy a Joystick

    Better Graphics, better performance, better everything.

    I never bought an xbox 360 or PS3 , because I have a gaming computer and it's retty much a lot better than xbox/ps3.
    I have a wii , because it's unique adn different from computer.

    PC is the best choice.

    I bought my first xbox 360 console back in 2007, It was an arcade version by the way. It broke this year, I was expecting it to break much earlier cause of all the RROD stories i heard. Now i have an 360 Slim with built in wifi and 200GB hardrive.

    My favorite games in order are:

    Gears Of War 1, 2 and 3
    Red Dead Redemption
    Red Faction: Guerrilla
    Far Cry 3

    Buy a Jailbroken PS3, I sold my 360 and got one myself. Best idea ever, I can play online and have any game and DLC for free.

    Only downside is that sometime you lose the ability to play online because of the sony updates, but it isn't a big problem since you only have to wait a bit for the next CFW (Custom Firmware) update that gets you right back to your online activitys
