For me it's the PS3 that's better. But everyone has their opinions.

Got both of them, But i'm going with PS3 but there's different capability's within the XBOX 360 and PS3 consoles. But PS3 is better in my opinion!

Probably would've been better to make a poll.

PS3 for me. It's more of an entertainment system. Saving music, videos and movies as well as playing all the games. It's just overall a better system. Gran Turismo is exclusively on PS3 as well.

I'd go for a PC just to throw it out there Mick... good for games as well as many other things.

otherwise I'd go a PS3 myself.

Problem with pc's is that developers are moving most games to the consoles and thus PC's will soon get shafted. Simulations will more or less find themselves pc based but other then that, most big games that your kids will want to play will be on the consoles tricky. They're far cheaper to develop because they can cross port 'share the games on both platforms'. I'd go with the ps3 simply for games like Uncharted. Xbox isn't a bad piece of kit, but there games aren't as good as sony's first party developers. If you can, wait a few months until a new spec ps3 is released which gives better energy usage and be more then likely cheaper.

Depending on what your kids like Tricky, I'd buy these games.


Uncharted
Uncharted 2 'these two are a must'
Little Big Planet '1 or 2 but 1 will be considerably cheaper given its a few years old. Still lots of fun' very child friendly these games but even grown ups will enjoy
Gran Turismo 5 'one of the best driving games with real cars' or Modnation racers 'like Mario Kart'
Just Cause 2

http://www.ozgameshop.com/ buy your games and extra controllers here.


If you follow what i've said.

Little Big Planet 2 $35
Uncharted 2 $28
Just Cause 2 $22
Uncharted 1 $28
Modnation Racers $29
Extra Controller $50 'cheap as piss compared to retail price'

Thats $192 all up but should keep your kiddies entertained for donkeys years.

Meanwhile buy that at any of the game shops in aus and you're looking at probably over $300 alone.

Little big planet 2 and a controller will instantly set you back $150

You can't go wrong with either really.

I have a 360 - and had a ps3 in my house for a few months. Love the 360 and loved the PS3.

I think you need Gran Turismo 5, which bums me a bit - but Forza 4 should be pretty solid.

I keep my proper racing cravings for the PC sims with my newly purschased G27. Which singlehandedly will cost me % in the exams coming up!!
