    for a while i have been a big ps2 fan, for the sake of the final fantasey seriers and other rpg's. but over the last year the game for the ps2 havent been that great, and i dont think they are going to be that great for the ps3 either, so it gotta be xbox 360

    simple - It depends on what games are available, so too early to speculate.

    Xbox 360 will be the one. Watch these before reading further :

    Dont believe the PS3 hype about 'twice as powerful' Thats assuming you could use all nine vector cores to the max at once and that they scaled linearly. In reality the Microsoft model should be just as powerful and actually may have some advantages. Not to mention being 9 months earlier to market - Lauching on November 4th!!

    Sega are basing their next generation of arcade games on the Xbox 360 console core, starting with House of the Dead 4, so look forward to some great ports of their arcade games coming soon to a 360 near you!

    Xbox wont initially come with an HD DVD player, but that's easily fixed at a later date. Buying Sony will likely lumber you with the 'Betamax' of HD DVD players. Its likely the Toshiba solution will win out as its much closer to the original DVD standard.

    Xbox does come with an HD TV port. The PS3 actually comes with 2 ports, but I cannot imagine when you would ever be likely to use this. How many people have 2 HD plasma screens side by side?

    The main reasons to buy Xbox 360 are it's here now (demo boxes already shipping to developers) and the PS3 wont be out until late next year, XboxLive - Sony just doesnt have anything to compare - and Media Centre. Oh - and not to mention that the PS3 is really big and ugly too. The Xbox 360 just looks sooo much nicer.

    lol @ Microsoft planning to launch Halo 3 on the day the PS3 comes out. There will be more customers buying Halo than Playstations lolol.

    Won't touch Xbox 360 with a barge pole. It's ugly, and the games will be crap. I've got a decent PC so why buy a PC masquerading as a console?

    I'll get the Revolution and PS3 for sure.

    It all boils down to games.
    Theres no doubt that the PS3 and the X360 are getting a lot media attention but everyones forgetting the Nintendo Revolution. Surely the Nintendo should be considered.

    Out of the 2 though I would probably go for the Xbox - Hoping Shnemue 3 comes out for it!
