360 for me, Gears for now, Halo 3 tomorrow, and Battlefield 3 next year.

I have a Wii and a PS3 and have extensive experience w/ the 360. Overall the 360 has more games, and a great UI. Its a console primarily ruled by first person shooters (OMgZ HAl0 and BioSHOCK!). Thats about where the good things stop. The graphics and "future" capability of the PS3 far exceed that of the 360, since no one is really programming for the 7 cores and yet the games are either on par or better then 360. Now that Sony has provided first party assistance to third party programmers, more games should be out soon. Furthermore, the 360 does have an HD-player and as noted above it is USB. HOWEVER, because its USB it cannot transfer HD-audio fast enough over the USB ports. I never regret buying my PS3 (unlike Wii) because the games that I do have are amazing. Warhawk is probably one of the most fun online games I've ever played. Whoever said PS3 does not rumble, clearly is not up on the news. The rumble controllers come out this coming month with backwards support in the games. Buy the PS3, enjoy the games that are out now, and watch for developers to unlock the power of the PS3 in the future.

No, not at the moment, but thats only because I have not tried. When my girlfriends laptop is on my wireless network it gives me the option to tap her PC if I wanted to. I should look into this.

Or a PC running media software with a bigass HD. Then you'll have total control of your architecture- hardware and software. I'm currently using a home built pc with dvi out to my 720p 55". All music, video, photos, dvd movies and TV shows reside on the hard disk thanks to media/pvr software. I don't have the juice for any serious games but then again I've only got about $400 in the pc.

mine does. it uses the regular ol media sharing server built into windowz. I think it supports AAC as well as all the normal junk. just not DRM.

the PS3 is really the only "next gen" system, for what that's worth. if having technology is important it's the winner. if having bajillions of games is important then the 360 is.

but once some devs realize the potential and figure out how the F to program for it, the PS3 will have a huge edge.

and then there's Time Crisis 4.

it's played everything i've tried.
it's not wireless. you can add a wireless adapater if you want. but the real solution is to run an ethernet cable (lazy ***!)
it integrates prefectly with a xp mce pc

the ps3 is better hardware. i'll probably get one in a year or two. right now the 360 has the games. i'll have halo3 tonight. so if the cops don't get finished today... it might be a while

I have 6 XBoxes (four 1's and two 360's) and I'm getting ready to buy a third 360 today. So, I think you know how I voted...

I had a PS3 then sold it for 2300 on launch day. I have a 360 with the HD drive, and wireless, and all the good stuff. Gears of war is awesome, Forza 2 is great, Test drive unlimited is Fun. I love my 360, xbox live is nice too, a great functional network.

While in UAE, I borrowed a friends PS3 for a few months, I gave it back to him when I got a PSP, it was more entertaining than the PS3(Also there were more games for it cheaper.). Blueray is nice and all but if someone has not said it yet, SONY HAS NEVER WON A FORMAT WAR. Ahem.... Beta, MiniDisk, UMD, and they always try so hard to force it on people.

With the 360, you can go buy it now, and get some great bargain Bin games, like dead rising, and other cheap "platinum hits." Sony not so much. I may get a PS3 after GT5 comes out, but it will be only for that.

Also try this, goto EBGames, click on 360 or PS3. Then select all. The PS3 only has 256 games and accessories available, while the 360 has 506 products available, nearly double.

Im in an apartment I dont know if I want to run ethernet through it. Although it actually shoudlnt be an issue. Right now PS3 is cheaper 500 versus 629 (comparable options)

M2cupcar. I have a media server that acts for everything, ie PVR, music, photos, movie database. That way I can pull whatever I want when I want from any number of computers. IE my gf watches her Top Chef while I watch Heroes or something. I just need a " media outlet" to hook up for my 46" Samsung 1080p

Where can I find what PS3 plays off a server?

but how many of those xbox thigns are utter crap? skins and faceplates? RF modulators? on page 10 (sorted by low proce) I got to the first actual new game--Bomberman.

First game on the PS3 search was on page 4 (Enchanted Arms)

So i wouln't necessarily use qty of stuff available as any indication of quality games available. the original Xbox has a LOT of junk available.

How about a list of firmware updates since it went out with one....?

360 is much better imo, im just gonna list 3 games

gears of war
Forza2
HALO3

lets see ps3 top those.....gears won game of the year, forza2 took best racing sim, and well halo 3 is a the most anticipated video game of all time.

ps3 would be cool if they didnt take forever putting out the system and making it so expensive cause they lost most of their really good looking launch titles, like assassins creed

forza thpppt :( no offense between GT and Forza, forza is a joke. (gears is the only game im upset about)

Never got into the Halo games.

So far they seem equal, how the system looks plays a factor as everything is in the open. Ill just try one, if it doesnt work like i want to the return line, but keep the ideas flowing

One of my neighbors is a lead developer for RockStar, and works simultaneously on the PS3 and Xbox platforms these days.

While from a development standpoint both systems present significant challenges insofar as memory allocation and workload distribution among cores, he describes the architecture of the PS3 as "retarded." No fixed <-> float operations in the microcode, difficult DMA structure, poorly organized development environment...

Not to say that the software which is ultimately released for the machine will be inferior or buggy, but there's a good chance it will tend to be late, and that the programmers will secretly hate you.
