Hello mate, long time no post!

I do have a PS3, but haven't played a game on it for months, I think it was 'Street Fighter 4' I last played.

PS3 ID is AndyCr15

I use mine for media more than anything, chucked a 320gb HDD in it and have all my tv programmed.

BUT when i play i usually pull out GTAIV or Star Wars force unleashed.

ok I have surcumbed... Im going to buy a ps3 after christmas, it was either that or buy a gaming laptop... in the end the price difference has made me choose the ps3. Anyway anyone got any suggestions of good console games to get both to play single player and to play multiplayer with my gf on holiday?

The PS3 is superior in many ways,
Better shop layout (granted not much on it at the moment)
Gene splicer research (Lets use our cores to cure cancer!)
the cross menu is much better than the new 360 layout.
The PS3 comes with built in wireless, the 360 you have to pay 40-60 for a wireless adapter.
The PS3 has a easy swap hard drive bay, and sony even recommend upgrading the hard drive to maximise experience, and it does not void the warranty.

Yes i have to say it.. BluRay, witch is not a dyeing media, just a slow one.

The PS3 also has the Playstation Home witch is like a big virtual world to meet and play with all those other ps3 gamers out there.

The only downside i see is, Sony have yet to make the cross menu make folders, so it is a little harder to keep your media organised on the system, but plug in a external HDD in fat32 all foldered up and your good to go.

As an owner of all 3 major consoles, I would say it depends on what you want it for. Pure gaming, I would say get a 360. The PS3 deals with media sharing much better though. The Wii is only for 'party play' in my opinion.

I also have all 3, well i have a Wii and PS3, bro has the 360.

I prefer the gaming on the PS3 also, the only reason i think the xbox is more popular for gamers is mainly the online community.. there are far more online xbox players than ps3.

I often have trouble finding people to play on some ps3 games, yet my brother can sit there playing MW2 online all day with minimul downtime.

I have to agree fps are just shoddy on anything but PC, I have played MW2 on ps3 and xbox. Now I def prefer the xbox over the ps3. In fact I can't think of a single thing apart from blu-ray that you can't do easier on a xbox it links up with a media center much better.

And I think Blu-ray is dying, digital media wil surge ahead in the next few years and blu-ray will be like laser disc there, but overpriced.

But in the what 6 months that I owned a PS3 not one decent game came out that I went and bought. Its a shame really I think the PS3 is more pleasing to they eye. But if I was going to buy one now I would get a xbox360 but then I own a PC so why would I bother.
