    Red face PS3 or XBOX 360

    Hey,

    So, I'll be going to England soon and I'll be buying a new console there, but I'm torn between PS3 and the Xbox 360.
    I've read around the forum but I'm really confused about JBing, firmware and all those stuff (I'm a girl and complete n00b, so sue me! ).
    I'm partial to the PS3 since I already own a PS2, but the Xbox games are easier to find and cheaper...

    Which one should I buy? Do I have to mod the PS3? will it work without modding? Where can I find PS3 games? How much will the cost?
    Which console has better tittles? I prefer games like DMC, Assassin's Creed, NFS, COD etc. but I do have a younger sister who prefers the games like Lara Croft, Kingdom Hearts etc.

    Any help/info will be greatly appreciated! ^_____^

    its gr8 to c a gamer girl
    Now it depends upon ur choice of games... If u like Uncharted, killzone little big planet, then u can take a peek at the ps3.... On the contrary, if u like titles like Halo, Gears of War then xbox 360 is definitely the right option...
    I wud prefer the XBOX-360 over the ps3 since xbox is prefered for hardcore gaming (u can customise the case and it looks much AWESOME than the ps3 )
    And ps3 is more for entertainment as its has blueray drive....

    Finzl Verdict:
    If ur a hardcore gamer and gameplay means a lot to u rather than graphics then grab the xbox360
    If u r a casual gamer and like to watch HD movies and browse free net, then the ps3 is not left alone

    Ps: xbox controller is much more fun to play with

    I own a PS3 and so far, no problemo whatsoever. If you can afford PS3 games, I would recommend PS3 hands down. If it's otherwise, Xbox360 would a better choice. Make sure you buy the console from Bangladesh. There are tons of console shops over at Bashundhara shopping mall.

    @ii Rabbi ii, what a low quality post!

    PS3 games can be downloaded and played via Portable HDD.Don't know about the online system but if you find a way to stealth it, online gaming is free for sure.

    Xbox games came so far with the modding so lot of advances, even stealthing yourself on Xbox live if you play online with a modded console.

    @Kevepeter Bad idea for buying the consoles from BD, its damn expensive and you can't trust what they did with the consoles

    PS3 has some great exclusive games like uncharted, little big planet, heavy rain and many other that really worth buying a PS3.
    But if u are a casual gamer(means time and interest in playing games is limited), then go for Xbox 360. It has also some good exclusives like gears of war, Halo, Alan Wake....

    @Trave160, maybe. Don't know much about Xbox360 as far as buying. As for PS3 modding, he won't be able to play newer titles like UC3 because he has to update his firmware to 3.73 and this version is not yet jailbroken. So, buying the original disc is the only option and it costs around 4.5k!

    Thanks guys! This is really helpful!

    Is modding really necessary? High-quality graphics and blueray isn't really a factor for me, cause I have a blueray player at home with a huge ¤¤¤ 3D tv.
    So xbox or ps, high quality picture is guaranteed.
    Also, I have no intention of playing online so that was never a factor for me.

    What matters to me is the price of the games and their availability here is BD. I'm actually willing to buy a ps3, just so I can play God of War 3(been really looking forward to it since I played GoW2), but that's just one game.XD

    Thanks for the help guys, keep it coming! ;D

    It 's highly impossible to find a new phat 360 in the British retail market. If you go the slim route it translates into endless waiting time for the new mods to play the latest titles. The slims also require a custom PCB to be flashed to latest LT+ revisions (if it eventually comes out for the slims that is) which alone costs a lot and are rare to to get hold of. If you 're ok with shelling out 4.5ks for each title to buy original disks, then by all means go for a slim. If you depend on piracy and don 't want a miserable gaming session, hold off and search for a phat 360 even if it 's a used one.

    If you have to buy it from UK and have the liberty to move around over there, look up for deals on gumtree, the best place to look for used 360s in the entire UK, but the thing is, i'm concerned about how you 'll be able to verify if the console is in perfect working order in a limited time frame and that too from the kind of people you 're not familiar with.


    And you say that God of War inclines you towards a PS3 and that 's the only advantage of having a PS3. I wonder whether you 're familiar with the Uncharted titles that are exclusive for the PS3 only, they are prolly some of the the best games in the entire gaming scene, all three platforms combined.

    Get a Xbox 360, its the best for casual gamers and for most of the games. But PS3 on the other hand has kickass exclusive which are just awesome. I have both but I like the 360 more. I have finished playing most of the exclusives on my PS3 which is just sitting idle for sometime now.

    Xbox 360 has provably more performance than PS3. Keep in mind that Sony has a track record of over promising and under delivering on technical performance. The truth is that both systems pack a lot of power for high definition games and entertainment.

    However, hardware performance, while important, is only a third of the puzzle. Xbox 360 is a fusion of hardware, software and services. Without the software and services to power it, even the most powerful hardware becomes inconsequential. Xbox 360 games—by leveraging cutting-edge hardware, software, and services—will outperform the PlayStation 3.
