This is exactly what I'm trying to say about the 360. I'm planning on putting my entire music collection on the PS3 cos having to stream music from my PC with 360 is a pain in the ass and consumes even more electricity. And there is nothing wrong with 720p :) it still looks greatOriginally Posted by Realn0whereman
@ ElDom - You are right, well it's obvious I made the wrong choice! Good job I can rectify it!

Anyways, 360 has pretty much the exact games as PS3 at the moment, and the exclusives that are comming up are really not all that genre defying, just different flavours on gametypes that are already out there, but just go by a different franchise name.
As it stands 360 doesn't need to be hacked to play your avi's....a program called TVersity will encode your divx, svid, RM, etc to .wmv on the fly and allow for your 360 to stream them over your network. It's not perfect yet, but gets better with new releases and works for 90% of content...
or buy a $150 modded xbox if you want the ultimate media beast....
Anyways, it's moot I suppose, I just don't see the point unless you need a blu-ray player...
Well if you're talking about Enchanted Arms it's great. TVersity sucks with Vista though and I myself ain't too fussed about AVIs.

In my opinions, choosing the XBox360 over the PS3 for Gears of War and other old great games while missing out on what you actually want to play was the most fatal mistake anyone would ever make. Like... I want to play Gran Turismo HD Concept and hi-res 1080p contents on my console... and I had a choice between all three consoles... and I knew which one had what (the 360 can be modded for pirated games and the Wii had a modchip) but I still chose the PS3... because it has what I need and not what others think is cool. I hope that helped. :)
Current status: testing random games.
I didn't choose the Xbox 360 for Gears of Ware, I've played Gears of War and as far as I could see there was nothing special about it and it's over-hyped. There was nothing I could see which justifies all the hype about it. I think that I always wanted the PS3 but got the 360 because people kept telling me to get it. Just because they thought I should have it didn't mean it was right for me.
Well im gonna quote myself from another topic about the same thing. Read it it might save you from making a terrible mistake.

Good you have reasons.Originally Posted by PSPSamUK
So you know UK PS3 has problems with PS2 games like 42% are playable atm.
By blu-ray you mean the player right? Ya the blu ray player is great(I love this on my PS3 since I can actually use it the way Sony intended) only if you own a good HDTV(1080p) to experience it the way Sony intended. If you dont its not as good as you might think but still good nonetheless.
Ya upgradeable HDD is nice but will it cost more money. Being able to store media isnt anything new as you can already do it on your xbox 360 but the PS3 does make it easier.
Wow first person I have seen who doesnt like the Gamer score(I personally love getting points for doing things in games its like a virtual pat on the back) but the PS3 doesnt have them so you will like that. As for getting rid of the idiots from xbox live thats not gonna happen as you know there idiots everywhere. But most PS3 games dony have mic support and poeple dont use mics much so you will play online with idiots you just wont talk with them.
You wont be free of laggy framerate issues as thats not the 360 or PS3s fault its the games. PS3 has games with laggy framerate issues as well(Untold Legends Dark Kingdom being one of them). As for the freezing issues im not sure it took me about 6months for my 360 to freeze on me only had my PS3 for 2weeks so no freezes yet but I bet it will happen.
After reading your reasons for wanting a PS3 I would still HIGHLY recommend not buying one because at the end of the day the PS3 is just a video GAME console yet in your reason for buying one you didnt list any games. Also you will be paying more money to only to get a Blu-ray drive+PS2 games since those are the only 2 new things you want the PS3 will offer you.
Just so you know im not tring to discourage you from buying a PS3 or sound like a MS fanboy I just wouldnt want to see you lose your xbox 360 for a PS3 and be disappointed with your PS3. I bought a PS3 and will admit I was disappointed big time tho I made the money back in 3 days of work so its all good as for you you will be giving up your 360.
What's your gamertag PSPSam?
The thing is media is important to me and 20GB is crap when I have gigabytes of media and money is no object as I have plenty of it. There are loads of PS2 games I want to play and they will eventually be compatible. My gamertag is NthVenus.
If money is no object then why are we having this debate. Otherwise buy a PS2 it is 100% compatible with PS2 games.
I have a PS2 already but for me the PS3 can do everything.
No, it can't. It can't play Xbox 360 exclusives. Which would be the main reason to keep your 360.
Wow wow exclusives big deal.
What do you buy a console for then?
Bah for enjoyment of course.
But with the amount of multiplatform games identical on both consoles surely you buy one or the other based on their exclusives.
Well I really want Final Fantasy XIII.
He will not listen to what we have to say he has already made up his mind. He wants a console to watch all his pron on. Otherwise there would be no debate. I really think that he wants a PS3 for FFXIII and probably nothing else save KH3 or like I stated before pron. I am done trying to convince people to wait for a price drop and better games. As we have regrettably learned, people will not listen to reason and will make up their minds on their own without the influence of others.
ORLY! Lol,now that is a funny comment! No,the PS3 is not my pron actually :ROFL: I have the for that.
Well you will be waiting quiet a while for FFXIII (and theres even rumours that its coming to the 360)
It's worth the wait.
But why buy the console now when there is a chance of a price drop before that and it will have more features and better PS2 support by then.
Because I want it now to play RFoM, Ridge Racer 7, and Motorstorm.
But you said exclusives dont matter.
Oh you all confusing me lol with this, it's simple I want the PS3 for everything it has to offer.
