Well I did a TON of reading and everyone said 40 gigs just wasn't enough space after a while. I went ahead and bought the 80 gig motorstorm combo. I also picked up Resistance: fall of man, and pre-ordered Assassins creed for my g/f. I've heard alot of good things about Ratchet and Clank, but they didn't have any in stock.

I also bought Best Buys 2 year extended warranty. I normally don't buy them, but my first PS2 had that optical drive failure. I think $80 to cover 2 years is better than a screw up in a new console which costs $500 to replace.

Overall I am really impressed so far. I just set up my online account, I was suprised it was free. The actual console is alot nicer than I thought it would be. It's heavy as hell! The on/off button and eject button are awsome, you just brush your finger over them.

The controller is meh. I love the design, always have, but they removed the rumble! Why?! I haven't used sixaxis yet, but I doubt it was worth the trade. I really like that it charges with the USB port, I HATE buying batteries. It is super light though, which I like, but it does feel sort of cheap. I honestly think the PS3 quick reference manual weighs more than the controller.

Sorry for the long post, I'm just really happy with it. I was playing my friends 360 last week, and yeah PS3>Xbox360. Just give it time. I'm off to go pickout my 5 free Blu-ray movies in high def, so I can watch them on my 19" low res tv.

funny, i just bought the 60 gig again for the hardware backwards compatibility, you can upgrade the HD later if you need more space. PLus with the 60 you get a free controller from best buy. If you get a 60 gig from walmart you get a free contoller and a free game

Software emulation scares me.

The 80gig is said to only be 85% backwards compatible, but I tried the few PS2 games I would ever keep playing and they work. To be honest though I won't play any of them, and if they don't work in the PS3 I still have my PS2.

The free controller would be nice, but I'm waiting until they put the rumble back in. I've heard it's going to be put back in, and when/if it is I'll buy 2.

You said cheaper, but all that aside I'll end up buying a PS3 next year or a little later because of the next GT so it doesn't matter. What really mattered was the price initially. Comon, $700? **** that right in the ***. Appearantly that's what a majority of consumers said too since XBox360 and Wii were both destroying the PS3 in sales. Don't know about now, but I imagine it's much the same.

nope, ps3 is beating xbox and is closing in on wii.

lbs for lbs its cheaper, meaning capability for capability it cheaper. Get a dictionary look the words up, comprehend it, then come back.

I thoroughly enjoy my x360, and I love xblive. However I purposely bought a x360 premium with the ring of death because I knew that they extended the warranty for it to 3 years, and the guy I bought it from didn't. Paid $100 for everything, and then sent it out. Got back a brand new one from MS a week later. Can you pull that off with the PS3

:P, I don't buy games I just use my gamefly subscription. With Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, and some of the other games coming out I think I'll be ok. I honestly don't care about the sony vs ms vs nintendo stuff. I got it for cheap and its fun. Some of the live arcade games you can buy are fun as hell too, especially when you only have like 30min to play something.

I had the Wii but after beating Zelda it wasn't fun anymore. They really should have made mario kart a launch title, I would probably still own it today. I've been thinking about buying an old xbox to mod again because I miss my old one. I still have my old 500Gb hdd from it laying in my closet filled with all the games and emulators I would ever need.

You need to really look at the statistics out of someplace other than Playstation Magazine. XBox360 just beat out PS3 in sales for the first time in Japan even this quarter. THAT is a feat considering XBox is a foreign item and Japanese people are notoriously bigoted in their consumerism. I'm not arguing the fact that it's cheaper in general terms (cheapest Blu-Ray player anywhere!) but you really need to re-read your posts. Straight out of the box the Wii is the cheapest system, then XBox360, then PS3. For overall features, PS3 is clearly the cheapest in terms of tech. However, for the average consumer who's just going to look at initial costs, they will and have been choosing Wii and XBox360 (in that order) over PS3. PS3's crippling prices have been it's undoing in the marketshare.

http://www.nexgenwars.com/

Granted XBox360 had about a year headstart on PS3, but even if these numbers are anywhere near accurate the XBox360 still has over 1 million units up on PS3 per year and Wii has over twice as many units sold.

Yeah, they're flying off the shelves.

I didnt even know there was a PS magazine. Someone needs to stop drinking the coolaid.

From day 1 of each console to end of first year, PS3 has pretty much kept up with XBOX.

Filter the chart by country and the data is much more interesting.

Sorry, didn't mean to present facts to you. I'll be sure to check the fanboi forums before I engage you next time so my facts won't get in the way next time.

Ok, so I guess the links both you and I posted didn't mean anything. I'll try to find the source, but XBox360 just outsold PS3 in Japan like I posted earlier. You come off as a fanboi with the way you're arguing about this.

Edit: also, don't get all pissed off at me because you're wrong. PS3 is not outselling XBox360 and it shows even on that chart you posted.

I dont know WTF you are talking about, and I dont know what the **** a fanboi is.

I have had both systems. Both have sold the same amount (give or take 1.5%) within the first year. Feature for Feature PS3 is cheaper.

I dont know what you're arguing
