i would go with ps3 i have had 2 xbox's rrod i have one as a doorstop i dont really play my new one the controller is excellent though i use it on my computer it doesn't have the best games the ps3 just seems to have better at the moment.

the only problem i have with ps3 is controller because i have very large hands and its light as a feather it doesn't work for me.

Doesn't the RROD issue get fixed? Microsoft had announced that long time ago.

Only if you still have warranty on the console.

Better exclusive games.
Cheaper (at least it is here)
Achievements > Trophies (makes games last longer)

I like to say it makes you want to play the game longer to feel like you reached a complete state.

Pretty much any point about graphics is moot. Most people agree that the PS3 and 360 produce visuals that are almost identical. In fact, the consoles are almost identical in every respect. The prices are similar, and they both have their fair share of exclusives. There is no discernible difference between the online communities, both contain their share of 8-year olds and fanboys.


Which is precisely why I changed my essay to a mid way stand point. I'm giving good and bad on both sides.

And you're right, by the way. They are almost identical in every way. They've both got the same amount of pros and cons as each other.

Completely off topic i know. But I really don't care for either of the systems. My Xbox 360 RROD'd on me (again) so its a pile of junk now. The Ps3 my friend had mysteriously died for no reason (ok so we may have dropped it once or twice, but we do that to the Ps2 all the time) so we said screw it and went back to the Ps2.

The newer consoles are generally more sensitive to physical punishment.

I'm surprised the ps3 didn't smash open.

Yeap, nothing really beats the good old days. Remember playing hours on the PSX, Playstation 2 and there was not even an iota of hardware problems experienced.

And when it comes to the X360 and the PS3, I play for only an hour or so, after having heard of those issues they keep on getting. And this is why I haven't had any RROD's on X360 yet.

Whoever said that the PS3 was for "Little kids" is dead wrong.

What, Killzone 2, MGS4, Resistance: Fall of Man 1 and 2, and Ratchet and Clank are all sunshine and ponies and rainbows?

Ratchet and Clank has a lot of dirty innuendo and double entendres that kids won't understand, but that doesn't make the subject matter any less lewd.

And the other games I mentioned, all exclusives, are just as bloody if not moreso than the standard 360 fare.

And in God of War 3, you rip off a God's head and use it as a flashlight for crying out loud! Little Timmy doesn't need to see that! It'll give him nightmares.

The PS3 and 360 online communities are similar, but the 360 has a pay-2-use system in place for actual online play. X-Box live may be cheap, but really if you don't want the extra monthly spending, go PS3 for the free online play where applicable.

Also, depending on the age of the kids (When I think kids, I think prepubescent, these may be early to mid teens you're talking about, I'm not sure), it would be best to avoid the 360 altogether, since the majority of popular games for 360 ARE pointlessly violent and profane, while the PS3 has age-appropriate gaming for every age group.

Finally, where I am, a PS3 Slim 120GB and a 360 Pro (80GB if I remember right) are both $300, while the 360 Elite 120GB is around $350. That means PS3 is cheaper both short-term and long term, since I don't think the Pro comes with an HDMI port where the Elite ONLY has HDMI. I could be wrong.

Microsoft lowered the price of the Elite 120GB several months ago. It and the PS3 Slim are both the same price now.
