PS3 or Xbox?



  It's A Reno
After years of being a PC gamer, I'm seriously wanting a console again, but which one?
My No1 interest is racing games, so I suppose the simple question is, which console has the best racing games?

Xbox

Forza 3 which is already released vs the new gran turismo which I'm convinced is actually a myth.

Well, that's conclusive then. :(
Ok then, which are the best current racing games in the market and which console has the best games potential for the future?

Tbh, you probably have more friends who own a Xbox and are online to play games with than the PS3.

PS3 has a browser (which you probably have on your PC) but Xbox doesn't have this.

Xbox has more good games available however PS3 doesn't have this.

PS3 has a bluray player, but Xbox doesn't have this.

That said, just buy a bloody Xbox just for Forza 3. /END
 
If you want racing games at the moment the xbox has the pick of the bunch on consoles. You get the multiplats that the PS3 has, the joypad is far better for driving games and the exclusive titles in this case Forza is actually out and got rave reviews, vs GT which is still some way off and yet to be proven.

Ive just made the switch from PS3 to Xbox, and tbh im not impressed so far. Much preferred the PS3 controller, Xbox is stupidly noisey too. Also forgot that You have to pay fro Xbox live which is a bummer.

Forza 3 is good tho il agree there!

Xbox controller is much better when you get used to it. LIVE is worlds apart from PSN and more than worth it for 12 months, if you buy the right Xbox (Jasper Elite) they are just as quiet as the PS3. If you know where to look you can also get 12 months LIVE for only £25.99

^ how is the controller better? its chunky as hell, the ps3 is just perfect size,

purchase a 360 and you need:

Wireless adaptor (£50)
plug and charge kit(£15ish)
xbox live (£23+)


Ps3..

NOTHING. built in wireless so you can go online in seconds.

Ok this must be a wind up!!!

Also, Live can be had for as little as £20 on eBay, that is less than £2 a month, hardly going to break the bank over the course of the year and for what it offers, is great value in my humble opinion.

Coming from a PC background I would probably guess you would prefer a 360, although you will be over the moon with both for pick up and play gaming.

Most people I know are PC orientated, but until my PS2 died I've always been a console guy.
I've heard good things about Forza, but having had a PS1 and 2, it's hard to change habits.

It seems to be one of those very subjective things.
I know what you mean about GT.

Playstation controls are for f**king hobbits, They're crap and are practically the same design as the original playstation control !

PISCH !

(Edit I've had both but now I just have a 360)

Hobbits Lmao, i have large hands and the ps3 is fine, infact perfect :)

get off your high horse, if you havnt had both consoles then you cant really comment ;) ya nut, just edited your post LOL,


Basicly if you want a VCR that plays Cd rom's and makes the noise of a tape player recording then ye go ahead get a 360, but if you want stylish, dont have to buy extra's to go online then ps3 ..

Why would that be a wind up?? :S PS3 pad just feels right, maybe because ive been using it for about ten years as its the same as PS1 and PS2.
 
Habit does not make it a good thing. I find the PS1 (sorry PS3 ;) ) pad feels too small, triggers are pap, joysticks have less feel and are poorly positioned and the pad doesnt sit as well in your hands. It was good in its day but the pad is in desperate need of a rework considering it was born in an age where D pad ruled and sticks were viewed as a new gimmick.

I've got both machines and my PS3 rarely gets switched on.
 
Maybe if Microsoft spent more of the budget on the actual console rather than the controller it wouldn't need to go back every 5 mins to be repaired.

Ironically it's my PS3 that sounds like it needs to go in for repair despite it rarely being used vs my xbox which gets battered constantly.

I don't need a high horse I'm f**king tall anyway, yes I edited my post it doesn't change the fact I had one for a bit ?

PC's kick both of their arses to next month anyway but most people wont invest in a pc because they cost too much.

Also I've never had an issue with my elite and my old premium I bought at release all those years ago is still going strong for my brother.
 
If its for racing games then xbox tbh as you get Forza, until/if GT5 comes out the PS3 is somewhat sparse in quality racers!

I've decided to have an Xbox 360 elite and Forza 3.
This one more specifically...

Opinions.

Good choice, PSN is sh*te, all of my friends have 360s, I'm the only one with a PS3 also, I think that's quite a common theme as the 360 dominates the online gaming scene thanks to LIVE and a better availability of key games. The PS3 fanboys will argue that until they are blue in the face, but its b****cks.

I've heard good things about Forza and have made the decision mainly on that tbh.
I like this package as it seems to have everything and Asda are doing it for £10 less than Game. :approve:

The only fanboy here is you with such poor arguments both live and PSN have their strong points and if you can't see that maybe take the blinkers off!

Slightly off topic but as someone else mentioned it, what's the different between what your mates own? Just had a flick through my phone book and it's as follows...

PS3 - 58%

Wii - 17%

Xbox 360 - 25%

Quite surprising really!

I have a PS3 and love it, not really played much on XBox but will certainly consider it if my PS3 packs in.

That you've gone through your phone book working out the percentage of each of your mates who own different platforms? Yes, surprisingly dull.
