PS3 or Xbox360

Hey guys i was wondering which one your gonna buy when they come out?? I personally might buy both. I was reading on another forum and they released somewhat of a price on the PS3 and it was like $465 with all the options and I heard $360 with all the options on the xbox360. Its gonna be a good battle between these systems

i think i'll wait for awhile, the prices on these things are just getting out of control. but the graphics on them look really good, i was checking them out over at ign and all i can say is wow. they look as good as hl2 does on my computer. of course the x360 looks exactly like a tower. anyway im just blabin on so...uhh....yeah thats it.

That's pretty much because they're using ALL PC components anymore, even though I haven't heard what hardware's in em. Sony, MSFT, Nintendo... they're all battling with desktops now, so they have to provide the performance. Personally I think the pricing is ludacrious, but I'd also hardly ever play for the $ I'd be spending

I'm just now getting an XBOX . . . so I'm definitely not looking into the new systems anytime now. I'm a fan of the 360 from what I've seen. However, i'm still going to do mostly PC games since I've got a decent laptop (and you can upgrade computers, you can't upgrade a game console).

probably ps3. I have an x-box now, that would give me a variety. And I really want grand turismo...

I have an Xbox now, but after reading all the info on the PS3, I will definitely be going the Sony route. I am gonna get a PS3 for sure. Like TbirdSmitty said, it will be good for variety.

Besides, I REALLY want to get the Gran Turismo game when it comes out for PS3.

That's funny, I had not heard that prices were released. The specs were only JUST released last week. I doubt PS3 will be much more expensive; Sony will want to keep prices competitive, even on the higher end models. (Of course, options probably revolve around the hard drive and perhaps extra controllers.)

Something Newer...

I'll be waiting until the prices come down about 50% as they inevitably will

has anyone checked out ign or 1up.com and seen the graphics on these things? i was looking at the new madden game for x360 and all i can say is wow. if it looked any more realistic it would jump out of the screen. and i agree with ya wkstill, xbox is way better graphics wise than ps2 but they just cant seem to get the games......although things may be starting to change. http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3140609
