I think early next year I will getting either an Xbox 360 or a PS3. I've been going back and forth in my head between the two so I decided to get opinions from people on here. I figured I'd give you some info on what I like/don't like about each system, and then you could chime in with opinions and perhaps tell me which system you think would be best for me based on my preferences. So, here it goes...
-The games that I'm most interested in:
Geometry Wars 2 (definite must-have)
Project Gotham Racing 3
Earth Defense Force 2017
Gears of War 1 + 2
Ridge Racer 6
Motorstorm 1 + 2 (must-have)
Little Big Planet
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds
Ratchet and Clank
The next God of War (definite must-have)
Call of Duty 4
Midnight Club LA
Resident Evil 5
Silent Hill Homecoming
Grand Theft Auto IV
-I enjoy all types of games but usually prefer simpler, arcade-like games.
-Some of my favorite genres include racing, horror, and platformers.
-Usually don't care for RPGs.
-Enjoy FPSs but not a HUGE fan.
-I like online services that offer downloadable games, but I'm not that interested in playing games online.
-In my opinion the biggest advantage of the 360 is Xbox Live Arcade, though I hate the fact that I'll have to buy a $100 adapter to go online.
-For me the biggest advantage for the PS3 is its durability. The 3 year warranty Microsoft offers is nice, but I would like to be enjoying my system 5-10 years down the line.
-Not sure if this should have any bearing on my decision, but I love my PS2 while I could take or leave my Xbox.
