I am getting a PS3, sure it costs alot of money now but when you think about it you're accually saving money (if you play online).
The PS3 has 4 processors, Blue Ray, Bluetooth, HDMI, and alot of other stuff not to mention playstation has the best games

Seriously, what does all of what you've just said then have to do with this topic?
Try reading the thread and what it's about before posting...

Counting the months down until I can get my hands on the PS3 (of course accompanied by a nice bunch of cloth to get the PS3 fingerprint free.

I must say I really like the 360's fall update ability to stream WMV movies directly from the pc to the console. It works perfectly, even with 720p HD WMV files. Unfortunatly it's limited to wmv only, but it's really easy and fast to transcode any other video to wmv, so it's not really a problem. I hope the PS3 will have even better pc-console media transport so Microsoft will finally wake up and make a really universal media player. And if the PS3 will really run a full linux OS, then it would easily replace the PC completely.

Well I doubt Microsoft will support anything related to making the PS3 better than the 360.

When it comes down to it, Compatability is a key factor in purchases aswell.



btw, are you talking about connection via Media Center?

I like PC's but If i was gonna get a console it would have to be the Wii

Oh yeah I've played the PS3, 360 and Wii

PS3's game: NBA 07': The life demo
-Graphics are all that thier cracked up to be; great
-PS3's menu- Just like PSP, with chat and the sony online store
-Controller: Kinda transpearent black with a "PS" button with the same kinda control as the Xbox home button has on it's contoller. Motion sensor would seem to help better with racing games but it still does good in any other game.

Wii's Game: Red Steel demo
-Graphics: Kinda close to the 360
-Abilitys: weapons; You can turn the gun or sword in any direction
-Menu: Nice and Clean also versatile

No, normal XP Pro with either media connect or media player 11.
WMP11 is the better way though since with media connect the shared folders were indexed every time windows restarted - with my 20GB music folder it took up to 10min.

Came back to vote for the 360. :) Also I heard the PS3 is having system problems? This gives me another reason to shoot for the 360.

Price
Problems
Lets see what else I can dig up


Sure I know the adrenaline is pumping for the release but I honestly don't want it, waste of time and effort.

PC

the games are cheaper
you can do a at least 5 times more things with a pc then any other console
The visuals are better, my friend has a PS2, but the graphical performance doesnt even come close to my computer (though i havent seen anyone playing a next gen console yet)
Who found out you can get milk from a cow, and what the hell was he doing at the moment?

PC cost more. And you have to keep upgrading it to be able to run newer games.
The 360 and PS3 probarly kick's your pc's gfx.
Even tho all of that I still like the pc more :)

I was really looking forward to the ps3 but after watching that press release, i'm not so sure.

But then there weren't many games out immediatey when the ps2 was released and it started off with Ridge Racer.

I have to say that i love the playstation generaly and have never really gamed on the pc, exept for the likes of Civ and AoE, but thats largely because my graphics aren't that great. The main reason why i wont buy a xb360 is having to pay to go on live. IMO that sucks.

So after rambling like this, i'll probably buy the ps3.
